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.

  • "Incredible. Bar tender Adam is the best host. His recommendations were right on point. Recommend halibut and cab short ribs. Ok also the oysters and BBQ shrimp. Decided we not waste our time anywhere else . Why give up a good thing..."

  • "the shrimp / bacon appetizer..was a nice touch of spice but not overpowering I had the short ribs for dinner..they melted in my mouth (as they should ) Everything was great...a nice little out of the way find.. Bartender was GREAT !"

  • "Fume Bistro has very good food and, often, a responsive staff. My family and I have gone there on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed. This Sunday, for a special treat, we went to Brunch at Fume. We were taken care of immediately and our first round of coffee came quickly. The food also came quickly but, for the first time, not everyone was thrilled with their order. Two in our party had the French Toast and both felt it was underdone. However, they did not ask for it to be taken back--in all fairness to Fume, these things can happen and they were not given the opportunity to correct situation. The reason Fume did not get a 4 star rating is when we asked for more coffee, it took 3 requests to get it."

  • "We made the reservation for our anniversary and asked for a nice table. We got there early to have drinks at bar. They said they could get us a table earlier if we wanted or they had a perfect booth with more privacy. We waited and it was worth it. I felt like they really took care of us and tried to make our special night amazing. Topped it off with a free gelato and house made brownie sundae on the house for our special night. Great extra touches."

  • "We had a reservation for 7:30 but didn't get seated until 8:00. The hostess said she would clear a table as soon as some guests left and it wouldn't be long. When I checked 1/2 hour later, she had gone off duty and there were several tables waiting to be cleared. The new host acted like he didn't even know we we're waiting. We also told her that someone had left their lights on in the parking lot. She obviously didn't ask the tables because the car was waiting for AAA when we left. Not good. Pork chop dry. Delicious sundae for dessert."

  • "Celeste was our server and we absolutely adored her. We are very critical of customer service so if you prefer to be somewhere you feel great, come to Fume because we left the joint feeling 200% and very satisfied. The food was absolutely delicious and presentation was stunning from beginning to end. We had their appetizer special that day which was a jumbo shrimp dish wrapped in bacon and I can still taste it 2 days later. They even had an entree special that we shared which were medallion scallops and I swear I haven't had anything better. I had the Cajun Spiced Rock Shrimp Fettuccine and he had the Chicken Penne, although both were on opposite ends of taste we could not get over how amazing it was. We are definitely coming back here."

  • "I needed a place for lunch which could accomodate 4 ladies with low and mid income level without sacrificing taste and variety. . We were all very happy with Fume. We had lunch at 2pm on a Saturday. I was surprised they were serving breafast/brunch items but the ladies were quite pleased. The quiche and salad I ordered hit the spot for me and were delicious. they were all super happy with their food. We sat outside on the patio on a gorgeous day. Despite the large party nearby we still got stellar service from our waitress.The place is a bit hidden, directly off the main "highway" which a passenger can spot when flying by. It's set in a end corner of a residential neighborhood with cramped parking, but you can park on the street."

  • "We made a last minute reservation as we headed up to Napa from SanFran on a Friday afternoon. They were able to fit us in, and the food was incredible! Everything we ordered was excellent, and the wine list was varied and excellent. Will come back next time we are in the area."

  • "Wish we would have tried this place sooner. Was excellent! Hubbie lived his eggs Benedict and unknown to us before visiting, they gave gluten free pancakes and pasta available! I had a wonderful side salad with the gf Mac n cheese and was very happy. The dinner menu looks excellent as well. One of the best places in napa for both gf people and everyone else too. Wine list and spiked morning breakfast drinks looked great!"

  • "Took my friend here for lunch. We've come before at lunch and happy hour. The waitress read the specials and we both went for one-- a brioche filled with ham and Gruyere and cartelized onions. It was a greasy hot mess. The toasted brioche was falling apart and it was very unpleasant to hold, or eat. The accompanying salad was fine. My friend had the fries, which are always really good there. Will definitely return, however, as all other experiences have been quite positive."

  • "Delicious food, had a good time with the party we were with, just had to wait for refills/ask for refills-and wait too long for refills of soda/coffee-waited too long for cream & sugar. Other than that, we enjoyed ourselves. First time there."

  • "We visit Napa often and have eaten at many of the more high-profile restaurants numerous times. For our latest visit, we wanted something less fussy. I found this through Open Table and was interested to try something new. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. Our server was friendly and unobtrusively checked up on us a few times as the meal progressed. The other diners were a real mix of people - tourists who had spent the day visiting wineries, locals of all ages, and a family with young children. One thing to note: we each had the fruit cobbler and trio of creme brulees for dessert. The portions were generous and either one could have been shared by 2 or more people. We're happy to add Fume to our list of Napa eateries."

It looked like everyone was having an exceptional evening. It was busy and I would definitely plan to get there early and take in the ambiance. We will come back when we return to Napa."

  • "Wonderful food, fine service, great wine list (Bremer Family owns the place and make their wines affordable her). Close to the town of Napa on the main drag. A little loid outside. Still great food and wine. You could tell that locals were eating here (knew the wait staff, didn't need menus, and so forth) which ios always a good sign."
    Dined on 5/20/2013
  • "On any night, you will find locals who have stopped by after work at their small bar catching up. The Skuna Bay salmon is the best salmon I've ever had. The braised short ribs over risotto is also outstanding. They can accomodate from large gatherings out on the enclosed patio to intimate 2 person dining inside. We will return"

  • "This place is consistently one of the best in my neighborhood. The food is always excellent, the service friendly and helpful, and when we go with a group, we can actually hear each other talk. It is nestled away off the freeway, but seems to attract a lot of Napans, and it takes care of us natives to Napa. I take out of towers there rather than to the trendy places downtown because I know it will always be good."

  • "My friend and I recently dined at Fume before heading to Yountville to hear Thomas Moore speak. The bar (which you walk into first) was packed and we had to sort of push our way through to the hostess' podium. There was no one there to seat us (granted, we were early diners at 5:00 p.m.), but we had to wait a bit to be seated. Once we were seated, our waiter was very attentive and gave great service. The food was delicious (barley/mushroom soup and the goat cheese salad). As a local Napa with lots of dining out options, I forget what a gem Fume Bistro is. It will now be on my 'regular visit' list."

  • "The restaurant was only a block away from our hotel and the concierge recommended it. My husband had Cajun Spiced Shrimp Fettuccine, which was extremely good. I had Braised Short Rib Risotto, which was good too, but paled compared to the shrimp fettuccine. We shared the New Fashioned Hot Fudge Sundae. It was devine! The service was attentive and good."

  • "All three of us ordered different dishes and all three were wonderful! The service is fast, warm and very helpful. I can't wait to go back again, it was that good. I'd recommend this restaurant highly."

  • "My husband and I live in the valley and have dined here many times, with others and just the two of us. Service and food are consistently excellent. Ambience is always fun, sometimes quiet, often more lively, but always pleasant. Love the fireplaces, inside and out. Highly recommended for consistency of quality for both valley residents and visitors."
