This was a nice place. Arrived early (5:30 PM) for dinner and was seated immediately. I ordered the brisket which was okay. My dinner companions ordered the brisket as well and thought it was excellent but maybe it's just not my favorite (tasted kind of like corned beef). The roasted artichoke was excellent.

This is a good place for a casual and quick lunch. I'm not sure I'd go for dinner, as there are better places for a proper meal. However, the menu is approachable, and the servers are attentive.

We LOVE the Cobb Salad with chicken and any of the meat that you order is fabulous here. The Key Lime pie is awesome, too!

I'm a fan of this place. The fried chicken is one of my favorites. Ribs and other smoked meats are excellent. I don't like Coleslaw with Mayo and there are multiple options. Love the collared greens. Service is always on point. Beer and wine selection are really solid, but nothing on draft. Overall really good spot.

Our daughter and son-in-law live within walking distance of the Bel Aire Plaza, so we decided tonight to walk to Q Restaurant and Bar. How we wish we'd bought a meal from Wholefoods in the Mall. We were shown to our table in the terrace and immediately ordered two Mint Juleps, one half rack of ribs with garlic fries and... More

Q in Napa isn't your typical BBQ "joint". It's very small with limited seating-there may be more tables outside than inside. Decor is clean lines and lots of B/W photos on the walls. The menu's highlight is a roasted to order vinegar chicken. It seems to be the house specialty and unless you choose to linger over a bottle of... More

The food was Delicious definately get the BBQ if you go. I couldn't believe the taste of the Greens almost like home. The owner came by and chatted with us for a bit. Will definately make this a stop the next time I'm there.

I love bbq. This is definitely my favorite place to get bbq in the Bay Area. They have a good collection of Napa and Sonoma wines and the bbq is very good. They also make their own sauces and all BBQ comes with great side dishes. I'll definitely return
