Dined 3 days ago

Had the most incredible Porterhouse steak. Cooked perfectly like I ordered it, cut by the chef off the bone, tasty and you could cut it with a butter knife. Though expensive, well worth the price. I'd order it again. Service was great, friendly staff made us feel comfortable.

10th Anniversary

Dined 3 days ago

Great service but very noisy. Waiter did great job in opening 1982 Mouton we brought to celebrate 10th anniversary. Thanks. Very good steaks but price a bit high compared to other steakhouses in the nation.

Not a huge steak eater but this changed me

Dined on April 25, 2016

Wow! Nothing I ate disappointed me or was underwhelming. Heck. Even the coffee was delicious! I made reservations for dinner through Open Table about a month ago. Apparently dinner here goes quick so try to make them early. We arrived 10 min before and was told our table was finishing up.. Which led to a 20 min wait. We went to the bar and was pleasantly surprised with a small plate of crackers and ceviche (off the menu) by the manager to make up for the wait. Off the bat, service was very timely and considerate. What we ate: Oyster Rockefeller Lobster and Shrimp bisque Special of the evening- Beef Wellington Bone in rib eye Potato gratin Creamed spinach Brussels sprouts Bananas foster A few of their signature cocktails Coffee and cappuccino I recommend starting with a similar menu if it's your first time here. This was a great spread for the 4 of us with room to spare. I have a doggy bag that I'm taking home on the plane with me. One of the best steakhouses I've had. The beef Wellington is delicious (steak in Vegas is still a favorite) and doesn't come on very many restaurant menus so try it when you can!

Great Chop house experience!!

Dined on April 24, 2016

Great Chop house experience!! Food was delicious, had the oysters Rockefeller which was outstanding. My spouse did the whiskey flight which was a lot of fun. He had the lamb and I had a steak, both were cooked to perfection. Dinner is pricey but a wonder experience and fantastic evening out for a special occasion. Our waiter was great, very informative but not pushy or annoying. Our water glasses were never empty and management made the rounds checking on satisfaction of all guests. Was a very nice evening.

Hit and Miss

vip
Dined on April 23, 2016

We traveled to NAPA for a fun weekend with friends. Cole's sounded like a good place to try for steaks, etc. The building itself is beautiful and the atmosphere was lovely - though a bit noisy. The wine suggested to us by their expert was disappointing; we said so - they didn't take it away and bring something better - just said they would suggest something different if we wanted to buy another bottle; One ordered the Halibut - overcooked; another, the porkchop; dry and tasteless; Beef Wellington was the special, and my favorite meal - the quality of the meat was mediocre and fairly tasteless - the foie grax had little taste, and there were no mushrooms to speak of; the madera sauce was thin vs. think and flavorful. The petite filet was the hit of the table - and was delicious and perfectly cooked. Again - tried hard, but don't think I'd go there again.

Best steak in CA...maybe USA

Dined on April 22, 2016

The steak was truly amazing. Recommend that you have a reservation, and be on time. There is very little parking, so leave early to search for a spot. If you are late 1 min to your reservation, you will find yourself waiting to be seated. This place is in demand, and after having the steak, I know why.

Went with a few friends to celebrate one of their pending weddings. We had heard really good things about Cole's, particularly the food. Most of it was disappointing, particularly the steaks. Very nice and attentive staff, nice setting and ambience. Went to Press the following night-- no comparison. Press MUCH better in every way.

Dined on April 6, 2016

The restaurant was busy even for a Tuesday evening. If you accept that this is not a venue for a quiet romantic meal for two, then you will not be disappointed. You have to choose Steak at Cole's, it would be rude not to. The dry aged filet mignon was cooked to perfection. The sides were an excellent accompaniment. Be aware though the portions are not small. Our waiter Mike was friendly and informative on portion size and cooking time. Atmosphere is loud and friendly and the service was impeccable. The wine list is extensive and it was refreshing to see a very strong line up of half bottles of the fine wines. If you are staying in the valley for a few days, this restaurant has to be on your itinerary.

Lively and busy spot. We arrived earlier and got a bottle of wine by the bar. They were kind enough to seat us earlier. Big selection of wine list by region. We had the porter house and some sides. While I've had a more tender cut this was still fantastic.

Order the 21 day aged bone in porterhouse steak for two and you will be treated to a meat lovers experience. A filet mignon on one side of the bone and a NY steak on the other. You only need one side dish like the thin cut onion rings to compliment. After an all day wine tasting we only had room for a glass of wine from a phenomenal variety picked by a very experienced sommelier. The service was thoughtful, fast and friendly. Didn't hover but attentive. We will definitely go back and bring our foodie friends!

STEAKS WERE THE BEST we have had in years. Quiet, refined atmosphere, good service, not rushed. This is where you get it and you pay for it. I wish it was a little less taxing on my wallet, but when you leave you feel you got your money's worth.
