  • "NVB has consistently great food and fine service. Filled with locals (this night there was a "rehearsal dinner" going on) who enjoy great food along with a very pleasant staff. The no corkage fee on your first bottle is fantastic, and Jennifer, the host, is most welcoming and funny."

  • "Took visitors there for lunch. One lady is from the North Eastern part of US and looks for the kind of food she had there. She does not care for newer Pacific fare--this was a perfect place for her. There are many choices--she chose fish and chips and I'm delighted to say she said they were as good and what she had back East! The rest of us had lots of choices which were very good as well. The serve staff are friendly and try to be helpful. Same menu for lunch and dinner. They are able to accommodate a large group."

  • "I love going to Napa Valley Bistro! Everyone there is so nice and welcoming, and the food is great without being over-priced. I especially enjoy their salmon when it in in season, and I don't even normally like salmon!"

  • "Food quality was good but it came out cold. Odd, since the restaurant was almost empty at the time. Also, we were there for brunch but they didn't have any black/breakfast tea...not good for a tea drinker like me."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Solid. Liked the chalkboard for kids to draw on. Menu, food and service are all B to B+ level, meaning nothing blew my mind, but nothing was disappointing either. Will go back. Like the no corkage fee."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "I love the Napa Bistro, the food never disappoints, the service is way above average and feels like they are hovering. I'm trying to eat my way through the entire menu but it's hard as I find there are so many things that I love and want to repeat. The fish tacos are amazing, the house made sauerkraut and pastrami sandwich, not be missed, but then there is the lamb burger. I guess what I want to say is you can't go wrong with anything that you choose. I can't wait to go back!"

  • "Wife & went there for lunch. We split the burger and it was very good. Not a real cozy place, but it was fine. Very happy with the meal."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Overall this restaurants just lacks something. Everything from the wine list to the atmosphere to the food was just OK. I had the risotto, which again was OK, but nothing that I could not have created myself at home. My husband had the Ravioli with Pesto. He was expecting a little Pesto sauce over the Ravioli, instead in came swimming in a soup of Pesto, which totally over powered all the other flavors. The service was friendly, but there was nothing about this restaurant that would entice us back."

  • "I have been to the Bistro for both lunch and dinner - it doesn't disappoint. So many good menu choices; service is attentive but not intrusive. The only reason I gave 4 start (instead of 5) for ambiance is because I felt that the tables on our left / right were a bit too close to our table. But, it was a Friday night and I am sure they didn't want to turn away dinners who also would enjoy the food."

  • "We arrived late afternoon and had an awesome lunch. The crab Louie salad and the pear/Brie flatbread were amazing especially paired with the conundrum white wine. Service was excellent."

  • "Our second visit to Napa Valley Bistro was simply the best experience we have had in a long time. The food was outstanding ans if thought proper we would have licked the plates. Most pleasing was the level of service. Josh was friendly yet professional and saw to our every need. The entire service team worked so well together it seemed as if they had been trained to help without being asked. What a treat to find not only good food but a stellar staff; a very rare occurrence in these times."

  • "Great sized entrees, straight forward starts and salads. The perfect casual end to a day in wine country. No corkage fee either!"

  • "From the greeting at the door, to the showing of the table, to the bussers and servers busily attending to the tables, and we were only a few tables full at the beginning, by the time we ordered dinner, the place was packed and BUZZING!. They have been here just under a year and I am so glad we stumbled upon this place. It is off the beaten path of the downtown scene, and it is totally worth going to. You can tell the passion and zeal the managers/owners/chef, all the workers have for this place and to make it a success. The options on the menu are plenty, they have many nightly specials, great options of beer and wine, and the desserts are YUMMY!. Reasonable prices for Napa and the servings are plentiful. Can't wait to return!"

  • "We very much enjoyed the great food and special attention From our server-- can't wait to return!"

  • "We were not seated until 30 mins past our reservation but the staff had been attentive and very aware of our wait. The restaurant was busy and patrons just didn't seem in a hurry to leave. When we were seated, we were greated with a sincere apology and an appetizer. Smart move since we were all starving by this time. The food was incredible, the staff was more than attentive. They quickly made up for the long wait and as a bonus, our waiter made a wine suggestion that came with a quick greeting from the wine maker himself, who just happened to be dining in the restaurant that evening as well. The organic fried chicken is the best I have ever had. It was our 4th visit and we have never been disapointed."

  • "We went for a birthday lunch and the atmosphere and food were wonderful. Our server was very nice, but he was slow bringing the dessert menu and bill. We could have shaved about 25 minutes off our lunch and returned to work on time; however this will not stop any of us from returning to this restaurant. Great place!"
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "The receptionist is very pleasant and welcoming, the wine list while not extensive has some excellent options. Food above the average for Napa restaurants of same level"

  • "Before a concert, we decided to try a new place. The menu was varied enough to be of interest. Some of the dishes are quite creative, but it works. My wife had spicy shrimp, and according to her, were really spicy, as she likes. I had some soup and sauteed spinach. Everything was just perfect. The desserts were interesting and caused a lot of thought to determine which one would be chosen. We definitely will return next time in Napa."

  • "Awesome staff! Thanks to our server Chantel!!! The food is ridiculous amazing! The bell wine will get you right and the best part is the gluten free options. They have options with substance and character not the plain jane meals other Resturant serve. Oh the spicy shrimp sauce is stupidly amazing goes with everything and enhance the food to new heights! Definitely bookmarked in my go to spots when I'm in Napa"

  • "I would suggest booking an earlier dining hour because the noise level could be quite loud especially if there are large groups. Their food is very good, and the prices are reasonable. The restaurant is doing very well."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We had been to this restaurant on a quiet Tuesday night about a month ago and really enjoyed the food and service. We made a reservation for Valentines Day dinner and if this was our first visit, we would probably not return. One of my dishes lacked flavor and a ravioli dish had pesto sauce with a very watery consistency. Even the waiter agreed. I would go back on a quiet weekday night and hope this was an aberration."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Delightful pre-Valentine Day dinner. Food just right and service to match. Restaurant stayed full entire visit. Owners stopped at table at the right time, near the end of the meal, to check in. Pricing is excellent and portions were just right for the price range. Would recommend highly for any occasion that brings you to Napa."

  • "NV Bistro has become my go to place for consistently yummy dining. One of the best values in Napa. I've never had anything I didn't like."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "This is a very unassuming place that has a terrific menu and wonderful service. We were a bit disappointed that they didn't have a full bar, but that may come. The decor, although a new spot, is sort of uninspired and it doesn't excite. So, NVB is a great place for a quiet meal and is great for families or a couple that doesn't like a high energy place. The menu is the perfect size, with lots of great choices for picky eaters or adventurous ones and our server and greeter were extremely gracious."
