"Fish Story had been widely recommended to us and we were advised to book in advance. in fact the place was half empty, the staff totally unengaged and the food uninspiring.
DIsengaged staff? When asked about our coats they pointed out a hanging rail by the rest rooms, no attempt to take the coats. Cutlery set wrongly and dropped over the shoulder from behind, a request for a crisp wine met with a floral wine that was wrong with the meal.
Despite the emptiness of the room, music was pumped out at loud volume drowning out conversation,When leaving I pointed out we could not stand the noise, the information was,met with indifference.
The food was inconsistent, some interesting but most boring and insipid. We have eaten well on this trip to Napa but not at Fish Story."

"Our waiter set the tone with his demeanor, an exemplar of knowledge, efficiency, and simpatico. Son loved the shrimp, wife raved about the "duck duo", which was well-presented and delicious, Mom had the sole, and responded with superlatives, sister's halibut was just right, and my baked butter salmon was great, compromised, for my taste buds, anyway, with a few halved brussels sprouts lurking underneath. From the Prosecco to the Duckhorn pinot and Frank Family Chardonnay, all tastes were serviced admirably. The ambience was perfect----contemporary and clean---and, with the gracious and helpful waiter, and, of course, the cuisine, promises to return marked our evening."
