A word from Fume Bistro & Bar
Fume Bistro is a locals neighborhood restaurant, nestled north of downtown Napa, off of HWY 29. We are an American bistro with French, Italian and Mediterranean influences. We like to call our food simple, honest and seasonally correct. To accompany the food, we offer an eclectic wine list which is primarily, but not limited to California wines. Comfortable, friendly service. Attention to detail. Terrific food in a great atmosphere. Come on in, let's eat!

Please note that our patio is open all year and super 'dog friendly' during lunch and brunch hours - during dinner in the colder months we enclose the patio and it's considered part of the dining room. Please let us know if you have your furry family with you and we will do our best to accommodate. Thank you for your understanding.

Diner Reviews
  • "Having enjoyed Fume many times over the years, I hadn't been there for Monday lunch before. Much quieter than at other times! Hot summer day, indoor lunch with out-of-town cousin, staff made us feel especially welcome. Our salads were deliciously above the mark. We were both glad I had suggested Fume! Each of us will be back here with others."

  • "My wife's steak was perfectly cooked. The portions were generous. She especially liked the very tasty rosemary aioli. I had the pork chop with scalloped potatoes and ratatouille. It was cooked to perfection. Again, the portions were generous. Very tasty and very satisfied."

  • "First time I have been here. The food was delicious, our server was great wish I could remember his name. Will definitely come back and refer to others. Thank you!"

  • "We always have a positive experience, but this time, we waited quite a while for our appetizer. Finally, the waiter returned to ask us what we ordered. It was obvious that he forgot to put in the order. The other letdown was the fact that we went there to celebrate my birthday and the waiter never made any sort of acknowledgement. My husband revealed that he noted it in the OpenTable online reservation and actually made a phone call to make sure it was listed with our reservation. It seems the restaurant does not pay attention to the additional notes in the OpenTable reservation."

  • "Fume Bistro never disappoints! From the wood grilled artichoke to the artisan salads! Entrees, meat, poultry or fish are always cooked to perfection and plated beautifully! My favorite "go to" restaurant in Napa!"

  • "halibut and sole both delicious......definitely will be back for more."

  • "We were here last year and enjoyed. If you read recent reviews, the theme of hit or miss is prevalent. We experienced the miss. I had the special, panko crusted sole. Panko crusted should have some type of crunch to it. This was completely soggy and tasteless. Service was average at best. Don't get me wrong, the place was busy. However, there are too many good restaurants in the area to gamble on a hit next trip."

  • "Traveling through the valley and need to grab brunch this is a local option. Patio seating but notable road noise so you may want to sit inside."

  • "Good bistro food in Napa. Service on a Saturday night was mediocre -- the management appears to be trying to save a buck by minimizing staff. Waiters were running around like chickens trying to handle everyone, so not their fault. It took about 10-15 minutes after we placed our order with wine for the wine (bottle) to come out. That's too long -- the wine should be almost immediate imo. That allows you to sip while you are waiting to sup."

  • "Banana Foster French Toast, Crab Omelet, Eggs Benedict, Huevos Ranceros and Caesar Salad were all deliciously served for our Sunday Brunch at this north west Napa gem. The perfect morning after locale after a Saturday of wine tasting in Napa or up valley is Fume Bistro. Our polite and knowledgeable server, Jason, steered us right for the main courses and delivered some of the best restaurant coffee we have ever experienced from a small Vallejo Roastery. Great Brunch!"

  • "Not as 'upscale' as we expected (nothing has been in Napa so far!)..... chic/casual - great neighborhood location just outside downtown Napa, off 29. Very small (TIGHT) parking lot behind restaurant - big vehicles avoid! Street parking seemed like better option. Nice menu, GREAT flavors in every dish we ordered. Service, while pleasant, was inconsistent, forgetting requests, but checking on us regularly. Would have been five stars overall if service was consistent."

  • "We got to the restaurant early (5 pm) on Saturday night and got to sit at a nice table outside. Our server was attentive and the food was good. It was quite and easy to carry on a conversation with our table of 5. It was away from the downtown hustle and bustle. A nice place to recap and relax after a fun day of wine tasting and catching up with old friends."

  • "I went to Fume with friends for lunch. We were not rushed and we all enjoyed our food. The desserts are also wonderful. I haven't been to Fume in a while, I must go there more often. I have never been disappointed there."

  • "For our last night in Napa, we decided to eat at Fume after looking up the reviews on Open Table. I had the Chicken Penne (gluten free) an my husband had the braised short ribs. The portions are a good size and the dishes were very tasty. The Peach Cobbler was out of this world. My husband and I shared one but we could not finish it as it was quite rich. There is nothing "fancy" about this restaurant but it does not need to be, the food and service more than make up for it."

  • "YELP!ers gave it a 4 star rating, I would've given it 3-3.5 tops. Service was wonderful, location was ok, restaurant itself looked nice enough. Very family and pet friendly. After spending a few days in Napa and eating AMAZING food, I was expecting it to be better. The food tasted pretty good and the portions very hardy, but it felt like food I could get anywhere, or make at home."

  • "I made reservations online through open table and then needed to add another person. As soon as I was able to do that, a second person wanted to join us. By then it wouldn't accept a change for the same time so I booked the full number for a later time. I called Fume' to explain what I needed and they were happy to oblige. We picked a VERY busy day to have lunch so it took quite awhile for the food to arrive but everyone really like their meals. I'd certainly go back again."

  • "We have dined here, but it has been awhile and this experience was pretty much the same as previous meals. We went for dinner and as usual the service was very good, friendly and professional. We started with the calamari with a spicy aloi appetizer. Our entrees were the flat iron steak, fries & arugula greens and my husband had the sausage pasta both meals were nicely prepared, but for the price nothing special. Bread is served on request only, which we found odd and we did not see any other tables with bread so we passed. Overall, our dinning experience and service was fine, but definitely overpriced. Probably wont' return or recommend, there are more dinning options at the price point worth exploring."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "I have enjoyed everything I have had here. The menu changes often with great options. Had farm fresh tomato and leek soup and braised short ribs rissioto that was one of the best ever. Options for seafood, vegetarian, flatbreads, etc. great lunch menu too. I recommend this place!!"

  • "An there's always something new on the menu to please. I should have written this sooner because now I forget what it was. I only remember it was the appetizer special, which is usually a good way to go. The flat breads are great, BTW. Our booth was cozy and fun for old friends."

  • "We have been dining at Fume for 10 plus years on a very regular basis. We seen over these years ups and downs in staff and food. Currently Fume continues its downward trend as we have noted the past year and it is not getting better. We cannot recommend as there are far better places to currently dine in the area. The staff/service just is not what it use to be and the dishes are hit and miss in our visits over the past 2 months. We dined for Brunch the past two weeks, after our experience this past weekend we will find another brunch spot... Fume is off our "go to" list for now."

  • "We have been dining at Fume for 12 years. The owner, Terry, created a real gem in Napa. Great inventive menu, with continuing favorites. I always have the onion rings - best I have ever tasted. Service is outstanding. Don't miss this one!"

  • "I took my family for a special treat. We all ordered something different and every dish was incredible! The Crème Brulee was the best I have ever had, three separate flavors! Even though my sister ordered just the house wine, it was very good, not your cheap table wine variety. Our waiter was extremely attentive and knowledgeable, food was ready quickly and the appetizers were varied, well prepared including presentation."

  • "Great food and Service! Something on the menu for everyone. Great Napa experience without the pretense & ridiculous prices of the "Big Names." Enjoy great food at a reasonable price in a restaurant that is happy you are there. I visit the wine valley twice a year and Fume is my first (and sometimes 2nd or 3rd) reservation every time."
