Food was very good and was prepared as requested. Hostess was delightful and very gracious. Table service was not up to par seemed distracted and not attentive. We’ve had much better service.

Attentive service without hovering. Sherwin was our server. Celebrating a birthday. Seated in a quiet corner. We dressed up and found that appropriate for this restaurant.

Bistro Napa was well worth the price point. The food was fantastic and the service was excellent. Great wine by the glass selection and they had my favorite Irish Whiskey Green Spot. I would recommend to anyone looking for a great dinner but not at an egregious price.
The servers are trained very well. I had no issues with giving a well deserved tip.
The Prime Rib had a unique flavor and it was great. The fish was seasoned perfectly too.

Excellent Service! Had not been in awhile and the Bistro Napa never disappoints. Food was on par but I think the prices were a little more like the Steakhouse.

The waitress was great. The "assistant" (busboy) was annoying. Coming back every 5-10 mins inquiring if we needed anything and were we enjoying the food. No, not with you in our faces. The food was pretty good. Rate a 7.1. Seafood cocktail was ok. Oysters were good. Veal , pretty small portions and the sauce tasted a little burnt. Wife enjoyed the app butternut ravs. Drinks were outstanding.

We love Napa Bistro and this was our third visit. We all ordered the special: new York strip with prawns. All our steaks were tough. But the kind staff brought us a courtesy assortment of desserts to make up for it. We had a lovely evening and will definitely visit again.

We had an amazing meal! Thank you so much! Our " go to place" when we visit Reno, we love the Bistro Napa. Thank you again Avery, we look forward to seeing you next time. I had a memorable birthday dinner, delicious salmon, and my husband had the pan-seared Chilean Sea Bass, equally delicious! We love how your staff pays attention to the details, the restaurant was extremely busy, but we never felt rushed to finish our dinner. Thank you again!

Food was horrible, and the service was awful. The waiter could hardly hear us took forever to get our drinks. Our waiter was rude. At the end of the evening it took forever to get our check. We will never go back.

Bistro Napa has been a consistently fine place to dine for many years. Service is great, longtime staff recognizes us, food is fresh, well prepared, and plated. We had the Chilean Sea Bass, the lamb chops, lobster escargot, and Caprese salad. All done to perfection, at least for our tastebuds. If I have to criticize anything, the menu perhaps could stand a little updating. A couple of newer, perhaps seasonal, dishes added to the mix would be nice.

This was our second visit in two days! There are so many things on the menu that we wanted to try. We sit in the restaurant where it's quiet. Ask for table #2. They have a fabulous Social Hour where the bar menu is half price. It's super busy and. But if noise isn't the deal breaker by all means sit in the bar area. Everyone gets cotton candy after dinner in the restaurant. Fine dining and great wines by the glass. Signature cocktails and good spirits menu.

Great evening. Wait staff was tremendous...always present yet never in the way or obtrusive. Meal (filet mignon and veal) was exceptional; enjoyed the onion soup - was a nice surprise as to how it was prepared/served. We will be back soon.

Everything was superb. The menu is coded with symbols: signature dishes, new dishes, vegetarian, gluten free. There is something for everyone here. A very good wine by the glass list. Signature cocktails. And cotton candy at the end of dinner! They have a great happy hour. Bar area gets crowded quickly for that so come early. Had such a great time we are eating there again this visit.
