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.

Great meal! Traveling solo so I sat at the bar and enjoyed a wonderful meal, several wines and the terrific service. All of the staff I spoke with were friendly and welcoming and truly seems to enjoy working there. A terrific sign.

The team at Bistro 29 is cooking some excellent French style food. I tried the Cassoulette and would highly recommend it for a rich filling meal. As good if not better than ones I’ve had in France.

Definitely would return when in Santa Rosa .

Bistro 29 is a lovely French restaurant - food is great, nice ambience, nice wine list and knowledgable servers. We had the crepes (both the mushroom and the ratatouille) - both were really good, the portion sizes were perfect and frites and prawns . We ended up with a couple of glasses of Zinfandel - perfect with our meal. We arrived early (they open at 5 pm) and had a leisurely and delicious meal before rushing off to a performance. Highly recommended. Be sure to reserve as this is a small and cozy spot in Santa Rosa.

A very fine evening. Our wait-staff was all one could hope for: friendly, informative, good at suggestions for the evening menu, yet supportive of our choices. (In particular, she paid good attention to my wife's dietary constructions - bravo!) Dinner was exceptionally delicious, as was the appetizer AND the dessert...what can I say? We were very pleased. The noise level was rather high early on, exacerbated by the smallness of the room. Yet, being February 13, I was glad to get a table early on since nothing was available on Valentine's Day.

We will return. There's a reason Bistro 29 has been doing well for ten years. It's worth the visit.

Took out of town visitors to this Santa Rosa downtown gem. Food is consistently excellent and at a reasonable price. Wine list has some unusual items, although it doesn't have as many local wines as I expected. Good range of prices.
Service was attentive and friendly without hovering.
The room is a little noisy for holding a quiet conversation among 4 seniors.

This is our favorite restaurant in Santa Rosa. We love French food, travel to France annually and Bistro 29 Is a wonderful treat for my husband and I. The foie gras is to die for, the steak frites is sumptuous and I love the mussels and fish dishes. Soups are delicious. Service is efficient, intimate and personal. A real gem!

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.
