The venue is excellent and the food surprisingly excellent. The wings and beef short rib are a must! Morgan Heritage was captivating and we loved them. Small complaint and hopefully an isolated incident, but the doors opened almost 30 minutes late and it was quite...More

The food here is tasty. We especially loved the duck tacos and the chicken wings. Both are also part of the happy hour menu. Go between 6 and 7pm for well priced appetizers and drinks. We came for a performance of local acoustic guitarists... I...More

If you’re interested in seeing quality live music in an intimate setting, with good food and drink in downtown Napa, the Blue Note is an excellent choice. We had a group of 8 out on a Saturday night to see Kahulanui, a Grammy-nominated Hawaiian swing...More

I read mixed reviews but everything was great. Chicken was so moist it must have been bribed. Duck was also really good. Crisp, yummy salad and great chocolate dessert. Jazz Club was on smaller side, intimate. Really good music. Kenny G is coming May 3,4,5!!

Our first visit to Blue Note was a huge success. Willie K performed after dinner in a sold out venue. The food was outstanding and the service matched to elevate our experience. We have already booked future tickets.

Depends on where you chose: bar seating facing the stage -- come very early. Central table or booth seating -- come the last 15 minutes. Also depends on who the performers are -- how big the audience will be.

It's fairly dressy. Smart casual will work too.
