Bistro 29 Ratings and Reviews
I felt the tables were way too close. For such a great dining experience, I did not appreciate the patrons coming in after we were seated not being able to be seated without having our table moved over, which then put us very close to the next table. That was an issue. The service was top notch and the food was excellent with great presentation. The crepes to die for.......
This was our second time at Bistro 29 and we again had a wonderful experience. The food is out of this world and the wine list had some fantastic local and imported gems. Highly recommended if you want to experience a little Parisian bistro right here in Sonoma County.
I’ve dined at Bistro 29 on numerous occasions over the last 7 years and have to say this may be the last. The service was awkward ( our party had 3 servers and it felt odd) none noticed I didn’t eat my dish as a different person who was not a server cleared our plates. I asked to sit away from the draft of the door in my special requests ( they don’t look at the computer when they seat you rather they refer to notes on a clipboard) and was seated in front of the door. daub of beef was so dry even the reduction sauce was not enough to choke it down. The fish was covered with a pickled taste that overwhelmed my tastebuds.
A great way to celebrate our anniversary with friends!! We broke with tradition and went at 1 p.m. which was perfect. It is a small restaurant and when busy very noisy. By the end of our meal we had the entire place to ourselves. If you like French bistro food, you'll enjoy it. We had mussels, steak frites and a seafood caserole. Food was yummy. The waitress was attentive and funny. Corkage was $15.
Came in about 5 minutes before our reservation, the couple at our table was just ordering desert, we waited an hour before we were seated, the management tried to mitigate the problem, it would have been nice to maybe have had a bottle of wine comped for the inconvenience
Everything is quite good about this restaurant except the size of the pour
for a glass of wine. They think five ounces for $12 is appropriate. I think that is too
small. It annoys me. I'll still go back as the food is very good and nicely presented.
Also the service is fine. I have been there a dozen times.
After a harrowing week of fires In Santa Rosa, my friend and I visited Bistro 29 with the hopes of having a decent meal. The meal at Bistro 29 did not disappoint. The Norvegienne and Clairette Crepes were delicious, the endive and goat cheese salad refreshing, and the honey glazed beignets and selection of ice cream and biscotti were out of this world! A Russian River Pinot Noir was a great pair to the meal as well.
UNFORTUNATELY, the service was greatly lacking.
This was our second meal at Bistro 29 this month, the first being a lunch for four a couple of weeks ago. The food, service, and French ambience was everything we could have asked for. We expect to return with friends very soon. The location in downtown Santa Rosa is excellent and parking could not be easier. As the town center continues to become more attractive and the redesigned square grows into itself, we look for the lunches to become almost as popular as the dinners. The old saw about "no ones goes downtown" in Santa Rosa is becoming ridiculous as so many locals seem to know one another here and the convivial atmosphere makes dining locally even more enjoyable.
I had and early lunch here with 2 friends. Love the variety of the menu and look forward to trying many different selections in the future. We ordered buckwheat crêpes: two of us shared the sausage, apple & gruyere crêpe with salad; one opted for the sweeter goat cheese & fig compote with a side of creamy mushroom soup. Everything was delicious, and do save room for dessert! We shared a plate of three beignets and they were yummy.
This was my third time, and not the best but I will return! I love many of the food selections and it has a good wine list. I would pay a King’s ransome if they added acoustic tiles or somehow mitigated the high level of noise when it is full. It is a fun little restaurant that always makes me feel good. Oh, and I love France!
We have visited Bistro 29 on several occasions. Each time has been as good or better than the last. The food is absolutely wonderful.. I had the Daube of Beef - melted in my mouth with superb wine flavors. There wine list is reasonably priced and focuses on French wines. The staff os loaded with personality and very engaging as well as efficient. We dine here whenever in the area.
Truly a local treasure!! Took friends out for a birthday dinner and all had different savory buckwheat crepes and sides of asparagus or green beans, and accompanied by a nice bottle of wine. For dessert, the beignets were absolutely fantastic!!
Service, food, ambiance - all were spot on and a great value too.
The service is wonderful...they go out of their way to please and accommodate requests.
I just wanted salmon and haricots vert for lunch ..it wasn't on the menu but the chef/owner prepared it for me and the charge was the same as if I had ordered a Salad Nicoise.
We enjoy the food and the ambience here.
I have always enjoyed Bistro 29 for dinner, and I am so delighted they are now open for lunch. I had the Crepe Forestiere with duck confit. It was absolutely delicious and the portion was so generous. Service was superb. It is a lovely spot with great food and very reasonably priced for the quality.
