Don Perico Restaurant
Located in the heart of downtown Napa, this quaint stucco restaurant serves authentic Mexican fare. The ample dining area is comfortable but a little dark. The amiable waitstaff keeps the chips coming even when the restaurant is crowded. The shaded patio, with its marble-topped tables and lawn-style chairs, is wonderful for people-watching. The menu features gargantuan burritos, a variety of enchiladas, and several combination plates as well as a decent selection of carnitas and seafood. You will find a full bar with great margaritas and a nice selection of beers.
Despite the fact that the dish I ordered was delicious, I was disappointed with the service. Naturally, this discourages a second visit on my part, and it makes a good meal less enjoyable. We sat in a booth in the far corner of the restaurant which might have been one of the causes of lack of attention from our server. After our meal was served he never returned to our table to ask us if everything was okay. I needed another napkin desperately, but I somehow survived recycling one single napkin for the entire meal which was a little messy. Also, I needed one more condiment to compliment my meal. Unfortunately, I had to do without. The server had more than two opportunities to make a quick stop at our table to make sure we were fine, but it was apparent that the restaurant was busy with customers. My take on this is that the owners try to save money by hiring family or acquaintances to serve tables. On top of this they keep the restaurant understaffed in order to give their current servers full-time work. After feeling desperate because our server had not brought our check, I finally headed to the cash register to let them know I was ready to pay. What a disappointment. Please, Don Perico, polish up on modern day customer service.
Don Perico is our favorite Mexican restaurant in Napa. The food is good, but not too spicy unless you want it that way. They serve entrees that will cater to traditionalists, seafood lovers, and even vegetarians. They have great lunch specials during the week and the fajitas are terrific. It's a popular spot for locals who work downtown as well as tourists finding them on First Street. The service is always friendly and prompt.
I have only lived in Napa since October 2007, and I can say that this place is my favorite place in the North Bay. Everything that I have tried is outstanding. Chicken Chimachanga being my favorite.
THIS PLACE IS THE BOMB!
