Over the weekend the San Francisco Chronicle published a review of the new BarbersQ restaurant in Napa, giving the BBQ joint solid scores across the board.

We too recently visited the restaurant, only we opted for some mid-week takeout. The service was fast and friendly, the food (we opted for the half-rack of baby back ribs and the turkey with cranberry sandwich, each with a side of cole slaw) was adequate and the restaurant was surprisingly stylish.

Here’s how the Chronicle describes the interior of the restaurant:

The interior was designed by Stephen Brady, so it’s little wonder the 56-seat dining room has a sensibility similar to that of the Village Pub in Woodside or the flagship Banana Republic stores in New York and San Francisco, which the designer also had a hand in.

The concrete floors are juxtaposed with dark wood tables, oak partitions, leatherette banquettes, an eight-seat marble bar and a beamed ceiling with acoustical tile to dampen noise. The walls feature museum-quality black-and-white photographs of the Napa Valley shot by John Kuss.

The menu, which combines American fare with Memphis-style barbeque, also includes dishes such as a lamb burger, grilled oysters and roast chicken and the overall atmosphere is casual.

Have you been to BarbersQ yet? If so, we’d love to know what you thought.
