1313 Main Ratings and Reviews

A wanna be high end restaurant that fails on all fronts. Comically awkward service. The seating seems to be an afterthought...just tables shoved into a wine bar. Music is loud and obnoxious, and the food is pretentious. Really disappointing.
Wow! Everything we had from the menu was ...
Wow! Everything we had from the menu was spectacular - every dish a work of art in presentation and taste. We shared the kale chips, beet salad, soup, scallops and steak... followed by the chocolate bomb and cheesecake. The service is wonderful and attentive - we were very happy diners!

The team at 1313 Main is exceptional. They always remember when we come back. Tom the Sommelier is especially friendly and so knowledgeable and passionate about the wine. The food on the tasting menu is incredible! Each dish is a masterpiece. The ambiance is great as well. It's a great place to go for just some wine too.
Too many servers. We had three different ...
Too many servers. We had three different servers approach us about wine before we ordered anything. Took an hour between ordering and food actually coming out. Cold soup, cold mains and on top of that nothing that we ate was particularly out of this world.
We've dined at 1313 N. Main several time ...
We've dined at 1313 N. Main several times because it is clearly the finest restaurant in Napa, and serves dishes as creative as the French Laundry but less expensive, though a meal for two can easily reach $200. It's worth every penny.
From the attentive wait staff who greet you and immediately make you comfortable, to a creative menu that changes seasonally. Neither of us have large appetites, so we particularly like the starters and mid-courses. The dinner for us both started with the Squash soup, amazingly different. My wife had a raviolo from the mid-courses, which had a variety of rich flavors. I had the smoked lamb chop, which was unlike anything I'd ever had. We both had special desserts that I can't describe except to say one was chocolate and the other a special pudding. An immense wine list includes a wide assortment of wines by the glass.
We'll continue to go back more regularly than the every 3-4 months in the past.

Very interesting experience
Each plate had thoughtful combination of flavors that I have not come across before
Certainly worth a visit
On top of the excellent culinary aspect, the noise level was refreshingly low in spite of a full house

This place never ceases to amaze me. The presentation of the food and the phenomenal flavors will tickle any foodie's palate. Such a creative staff. As always an impressive wine list and very attentive staff. I had the Kale Salad and Squid Ink Risotto left me with a good vibe for the rest of the evening.

1313 Main was a restaurant we chose for a nice dinner while we were visiting Napa on our honeymoon. This place has a nice vibe. The waiters were good at presenting the food and answering any questions we had. The presentation of the food was creative and appealing. The flavors were nice. Good place to visit while in Napa.

This was my first time trying 1313 Main and I would definitely return. We tried the tasting menu and it was delicious. Every course from the tasting menu was well-prepared and plated beautifully. We did not have one set waiter or waitress but rather had a team of 3-4 people serving us and everyone was knowledgeable about the food. The truffle poached egg and scallops were the dishes that stood out to me.

The staff at 1313 Main was very helpful and very accommodating. They were helpful in picking out wine and food. I was with a larger group and multiple staff would come out with our choices for the various courses so everyone would get their food simultaneously. We never felt rushed and the food was delicious.

My husband and I had been hearing good things about 1313 Main (with a few caveats) and were delighted to accompany my grandmother when she asked to go one night (she had heard about it from a bridge buddy). She's 94 and has Macular Degeneration, so she's a bit wobbly and can't see much.
Upon sitting down at the table, our waiter made a gallant effort at not only making us comfortable, but went above and beyond to make Grandma happy. He procured a special beverage for her (that they do not regularly keep on hand) and made sure she was having a good time. Table service was attentive, swift and thoughtful.
We were encouraged to order 2-3 courses each, but when looking at the prices could not do that to Grandma, who had insisted on paying. Yes, this place is exceedingly expensive and the portions are miniscule. But it's worth every penny. Grandma and I had the salmon, which was tender and dense at the same time, accompanied by some gorgeous and tasty veggies. My husband had the beef bavette, which was cooked to perfection and melted in the mouth.
We will absolutely be back, and will spread the word to our friends in the meantime. Keep in mind that you will go home hungry if you only have one course, but you will have such a wonderful taste in your mouth (from both the food and service) that you won't mind a bit.

We had 5 for dinner, 3 of whom are vegans. The restaurant Had been told when I made the reservations and they were ready for us, asking when we arrived which of the party were vegans. The food they offered was lovely, well presented and tasty although protein deficient. The meals for carnivores were absolutely fabulous including appetizers.
We appreciated the effort the chef took to make vegan desserts and they were scrumptious.
I requested suggestions from the wine list and was very happy with the options that were offered. The pairings were excellent

With a lot of competition around, this resto is up to the challenge. The service is good and with attention, the suggested wines by the glass was very good. The presentation of the plates are really different and the food is very tasty. We like to share plates and this is the place to do it. We had a nice evening , thank you to all the service staff.

My parents, younger brother, and I enjoyed our meal here while on vacation. The service is impeccable, the wine list has many options for every taste, the food is both creative and delicious. I will definitely be recommending this spot to everyone I know visiting the Napa area.

This is truly a creative dining experience but be ready for what I like to call a little "Napa Aloof." If you are going to dish it out you have to back it up. Waiters trying to dress the part but forgetting specific ingredients about each course or serving the wrong wine during the pairing and brushing it off by saying, "Well, you can still enjoy the wine."
There is definitely value here at 1313 Main considering the quality of food and overall presentation. Many other Napa restaurants would charge more. The best server of the night was actually a younger staffer who had more personality than the host with gauges in his ears and tattered vans or the guy serving each coarse who made some mistakes.
You would think that by a review like this we would't return. The answer is we would. It just proves that you can have the best chef on the planet but if the front of the house blows it your impression is much different!

My wife is a Vegan. You always take good care of her. Vegetables are always outstanding and I am not a vegetable guy/. I usually eat them because I have to.
Thanks for the good service with our wonderful dinner.
We always look forward to dining at 1313.

Our 2nd visit, and 1313Main does not disappoint! There were 6 of us, and everyone loved every dish! Delicious meal and wine (thank you gentlemen helping us- sorry, forgot the names - for the food and wine recommendations), great service!! In the highly competitive Napa country this place is hard to beat! We'll surely be back.

The dishes were delicious, the layers of flavor were exceptional. The service was very attentive and made the experience wonderful. The restaurant ambience was rather dull but the food and service more than made up for it.

While the staff was very nice and the food and presentation excellent, I could not say we could recommend 1313 Main in good faith. As we have a property in Napa and recommend a number of restaurants, we hope they will read this review and make a couple of changes that are simple and will greatly improve their chances to compete with other restaurants in downtown. First, it is entirely too bright. Tinting the front windows and/or shades would be most helpful, in addition to turning the lights significantly down. Second, the music is way to low, so low you can hardly hear it. Please make these changes and we will be happy to return and send guests your way. We know 1313 was previously a lounge, and they wish to depart from that. Unfortunately they moved too far in the opposite direction. These gripes perhaps may sound minor, however Napa restaurants are all about the mood. We hope they will listen.

Beautiful vegan gf SOS-free brunch. We were still hungry afterwards. Could've shared the salad and had two mains. Your non-vegan dishes were much more substantial. No protein in a salad... Next time.... Something to think about. Thank you.

1313 Main was one of those experiences where you arrive at the restaurant reasonably hungry, are a little shocked at the prices, figure, "oh well, it's a special occasion" and then more carefully scan the menu. And you think "oh no, it's experimental food night". Some people really enjoy eating weird stuff, and some people like to see at least 1/2 the menu populated by items that you are pretty sure you will like. 1313 Main had almost nothing that I'd ever eaten before. But we were hungry so what to do? Just jump in.
It was SUPERB. Everything was so tasty, and handled so well, and combined with so many other complimentary flavors. I can't even remember everything we ordered, but all we can say it 'Trust Them---their chef knows exactly what he/she is doing and the resulting 'strange thing I've never tried before in combination with another strange thing that sounds very weird' will be amazing.
Great experience. Will be back

I usually don't have the time to share my feedback but my husband and I had such an amazing dinner at this place so I decided to write this review. Everything we ordered in this place was so fresh and delicious and the presentation of the food was perfect. The food was at the level of Michelin starred restaurants (for a very different price). Will absolutely go back and recommend this place to our friends.

We had been to 1313 Main for dinner but wanted to try the Sunday brunch since they supposedly have a nice bloody Mary. We made the reservation at 12:30 but when we got there, they were "out" of bloody Mary's. Very disappointing. The biscuits and gravy was interesting, with a lot of unusual flavors. The fried chicken with waffle was nice, but the two items did not go together, with the syrup leaking into the chicken. I prefer this restaurant for dinner.

A truly remarkable dining experience. Wine paring is exceptional in taste and value. Very knowledgeable staff. These people love what they are doing. This is a French Laundry type experience at a fraction of the cost. This will be a tough reservation to secure soon.

1313 Main seems to be an up and coming hipster restaurant, and although the food made an attempt to raise the bar on appearance several of the people in my group ended up having severe stomach problems after eating their meals. Wine list is over priced and esoteric.
