Transforming a house into a restaurant is becoming a trend nowadays. One of the notable ones is Napa Restaurant & Bar located at Scout Borromeo Street in Quezon City.
Napa Resto-Bar caters to all types of diners: families, friends, barkadas, business associates and couples.
Napa Restaurant & Bar owe its homey design to Cynthia Gaerlan. She got the inspiration from the vineyards of Napa Valley. The look was pretty obvious while we examined the restaurant from the al fresco dining & bar to the main dining areas. More than that, I was pleasantly surprised to see how huge Napa Restaurant & Bar was. Take for example the main dining area. It could seat a hundred people. The Al Fresco area could have another fifty people, and lastly the private function room could seat 30 people. The cozy ambiance of Napa Restaurant & Bar is perfect for people who want to enjoy their bonding time with friends and loved ones. In fact, a wedding reception was ongoing when we had our meal at the restaurant. There is just a spot for everybody!
I really enjoyed the pleasing design and the comfortable setting of Napa Bar & Restaurant. I wish I have taken more pictures but I was there to have dinner and spend quality time with my friends 🙂
The food being served at Napa Restaurant is created by executive chef Berna Hewins. There are brick-oven pizzas, pastas, steaks, ribs, appetizers and other American-Italian inspired food items. We tried to order one of each food type so that we get to taste most of Napa specialties. The overall experience was good!
- Very Veggie Crisps (Php 145)
I super duper love chips but I’ve been cutting down on junk food. However, upon seeing that Napa Restaurant & Bar offers an alternative to our usual unhealthy chips. I was ecstatic! I was pretty sure that the veggie chips would taste just as good plus it has that ‘healthy’ factor because it was made of vegetables. I was right! The very veggie chips is a must try! It was crispy and you can definitely taste the different flavors of the vegetables used in the dish. I didn’t even need to dip the chips into the sauce!
- Buffalo Wings (Php 210)
The buffalo wings was so appetizing to look at. You can see the sauce evenly coated on the chicken wings. It would be such a pain if you ended up just looking at it. I immediately took one piece and munched on the tender meat of this yummy red wings. Surprisingly, Napa RestoBar’s version of buffalo wings wasn’t spicy at all! Instead, the flavors were on the sweet side which I appreciate.
- Pork Chop Grande (Php 395)
One thing that always concern me whenever I order pork chops is the tenderness of the meat. Luckily, I didn’t encounter that problem with Napa’s juicy pork chops! Their pork chop is grilled and flavored to perfection! It didn’t take much time for the three of us to finish it.
The pork chops were served with a choice of 2 sides (baked potato, grilled vegetables, french fries, mashed potato, buttered vegetables, cole slaw, garlic rice, corn on the cob). We’ve chosen french fries and mashed potato. The mashed potato was a hit in our table, loved it!
- Napa Special (Php 495)
Napa Special is Napa’s homemade pizza that has everything in it! Italian sausage, bacon, pepperoni, chorizo, green & red bell peppers, black olives, onion rings and mushrooms, name it and it’s there! Like any other pizza, this is best eaten as soon as it was served. Nothing beats a newly cooked pizza (especially loaded ones!).
- Lava Cake (Php 190)
Most of us usually order dessert after we finish our main course. For Napa Restaurant & Bar customers, I highly suggest you order their blockbuster lava cake together with your main dishes. Reason? It takes 25 minutes for Napa to prepare the cake. When you get to see and taste the dessert, you would understand why 25 minutes is worth the wait.
The lava cake might be normal looking with a scoop of vanilla ice cream & ladyfinger on the side. However, once you put your fork into the cake, you’ll be wide-eyed with awe as the rich chocolate oozes out of the cake. Such a nice sight to see and such excitement for those who would be eating the yummy dessert.
Napa Resto Bar is a popular destination for a lot of people. This is a nice venue especially for folks who are craving for American & Italian food in a homey setting. Decent food, great ambiance and nice service – Napa is here to stay.
