General Information

Location: Just to the left of the gate to Disney's California Adventure.

Date Opened: January 2001

Seating: The restaurant's main dining room offers tables and a handful of booths, with tables at the windows providing a view into a nicely landscaped section of Disney California Adventure park. The restaurant has a chef's counter, with a total of 14 seats - Two groups of 4 at the main counter with a full view of the open kitchen, and a rarely-used group of 6 at the dessert station. Finally, the restaurant has a private dining room that can accommodate up to 30 people.

Service Type: Table service in the main restaurant. The restaurant also offers a full bar, the Napa Rose Lounge, with comfortable seating including one or two tables near a fireplace. A limited selection of appetizers are available in the Lounge. On very busy nights the Lounge is sometimes used as an overflow dining room.

Children's Meals: Yes

Vegetarian Options: Yes

Annual Pass Discount: No

Reservations: Reservations are available 60 days in advance and are highly recommended, especially if you wish to sit at the chef's counter and during peak/holiday season. While the Disney Dine Line (714-781-3463) accepts reservations for the restaurant, most Napa Rose regulars call the location directly (714-300-7170) to book, especially if they want specific seats at the chef's counter, or want to make reservations for a holiday meal. You can also make reservations in person at the location.

Dress Code: Napa Rose does not enforce a dress code, but as one of the nicest restaurants in the Resort, dressier attire is definitely appropriate. The restaurant attracts customers from all over the Southland, and it is not unusual to see couples or groups in formal attire.

History and Trivia

The restaurant has earned a number of awards since opening in 2001. Most recently, Executive Chef Andrew Sutton was honored with the 2009 Antonin Carême Medal, and two of the restaurant's sous chefs were named "Sous Chef of the Year" at the 2008-2009 Southern California Restaurant Writers awards.

The Disneyland Web site also lists the following awards.

  • Number one food ranking in the Zagat Survey for Orange County restaurants in 2002, 2003 and 2004
  • Zagat's Orange County "Most Popular Restaurant" in 2008 and 2009
  • Orange County Business Journal's "Best Southern California Restaurant 2007"
  • Wine Spectator's "Best of Award of Excellence"
  • Distinguished Restaurants of North America (DiRoNA) award of excellence for the second time in 2007

The restaurant's reputation as a wine destination is due both to the expansive wine cellar and the efforts of its first general manager, Michael A. Jordan. Jordan opened the restaurant with chef Sutton in 2001, and was responsible for a Resort-wide (and later company-wide) initiative to create a comprehensive wine education program for restaurant servers. Jordan was honored as a Master Sommelier in 2007, and under his guidance the large numbers of Disneyland Resort cast members became certified sommeliers.

Along with his Disneyland Resort duties, Jordan was the Global Manager of Wine and Sales Standards and wine educator for Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, working with every Disney resort to develop their own wine eduction programs and helping to guide the wine lists at their top restaurants. A frequent visitor to the Disney Cruise Line, Jordan hosted wine education classes for crew and passengers alike. Jordan was also considered one of the driving forces behind Disney's California Food & Wine Festival. By the time Jordan left Disney in 2009, Napa Rose boasted 47 sommeliers, including 5 Advanced Level sommeliers, both believed to be more than any other restaurant in the world.

Jordan's sudden resignation in September 2009 came as a surprise to many. In interviews, Jordan said that he was leaving to pursue a dream of opening his own wine label, Word Vineyards. (He has since returned to restaurant life as the president of the Beachcomber, a pair of ocean-view restaurants in Southern California). Jordan's assistant manager, advanced sommelier Joy Cushing, quietly stepped into the general manager role while a new general manager was sought. In February 2010, Disney announced that Philippe Tosques, formerly of the Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Prime Steakhouse at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, had been hired as general manager for Napa Rose. Cushing remains as the restaurant's head sommelier.
