Bistro 29 located in downtown Santa Rosa, Sonoma County. Bistro 29 is a traditional bistro specializing in “Breton” regional cuisine. The number 29 comes from the department of Finistère (end of the earth) located in the upper tip of north-west France. Known for the Galette de blé noir (traditional buckwheat crêpe) and sweet crêpes, Bretagne also uses a variety of local seafood and produce that can easily be found in and around northern California.

I have been many times to Bistro 29. This last time, the restaurant was very busy so service was not as good as it should have been. It took 15-20 minutes to get a glass of sparkling wine they happened to be providing as it was their anniversary, over to the table. It was over 2 hours to dine which was too long. They were great with my friend who had special dietary needs. The food was good overall but my mussels, although quite tasty- were tiny. Not big and flavorful mussels. Pernod broth super tasty, just wish I had better mussels. Fries and salad were delish. My husband had steak frites and he said it was quite good. We will go back as we have had many excellent meals there -

We enjoyed our meal. The prix fixe was an excellent value. We did think that the service was a bit slow between salad and entree. We were very pleased that our request to be seated by a wall or in a corner due to hearing issues was honored.

We will be back....soon. We love French food.

We've been to Bistro 29 several times and have never been disappointed. The food and service are outstanding. There is nothing on the menu that I would not enjoy. Great wine list too, and reasonably priced.

Wonderful French cuisine featuring specialties from the Brittany region in France. We had just returned from Paris and the meal here was much better than a few of the ones we had dined at in France. Great crepes and galettes too. My husband raved about his Grand Marnier dessert crepe for days.

We all had a great & relaxing time at lunch. The two gentlemen both selected the lamb burger. One salad, very fresh. I choose beef sandwich, with onion soup. We shared the beignets for dessert. Server was excellent.

I went completely fish. the halibut appetizer was the best ever. It MELTED in my mouth. Then I selected the scallops, always a favorite. Cooked perfectly. Server was great. Everything was so outstanding that we went back the next day with a friend for lunch. Only thing lacking was my ability to speak more French. Chef Brian makes this place a treasure.

Both my friend and I hadn't ever been to Bistro 29, but had heard good things about it and wanted to give it a try. We went for lunch, but will definitely come back for a dinner sometime. We had a great time visiting, both of us loved what we ordered, and the wait-staff person, Emily, was very attentive and genuine. We were glad we chose Bistro 29 for our lunch together.

I treated my parents for their anniversary. They said the hostess and waitperson both greeted them with "happy anniversary". They loved the quiet atmosphere and enjoyed the food immensely.

Enjoyed the lunch. Came here a few months ago and was disappointed in the lunch menu and service. It's definitely improved.
