Truly excellent food—tuna tartare, lamb kabobs, pork belky, and all manner of deliciousness—served with fantastic service and excellent cocktails. Only drawback? Loud kids accompanying their parents, but it’s a vacation hotel, so people don’t have daycare.

Elegant ambiance and delicious well-presented food in generous portions. Restaurant is a quiet spot away from the activity of the casino. We enjoyed the salmon and filet - sides were included so the price was reasonable for good food.

Good evening meal celebrating a Nephew's Birthday. Wine service done nicely and well worth the corkage fee. Lots of good and different entrée choices. Enjoyed being able to split salad.

Server Lisa was awesome. The appetizers were okay and the entrees were great. Nice special touches like the cotton candy at the end of the meal, actual tablecloths, the service team de-crumbed the table!

Hate the casino smoke and noise!

To be honest, the service felt condescending...and from the start, our server did not offer us a wine list. He seemed to rush us to order; and after we ordered, it took 45 minutes for our entrees to arrive (while it appeared the restaurant wasn’t too populated). While waiting for our entrees, our server rarely approached us.

Although we hoped for an an experience, we felt underwhelmed. My veal piccata was soft and salty, while my companion’s steak was grisly and under seasoned. We did appreciate the complimentary cotton candy (which at $15 is ridiculous), however we paid over $120 for our dinner.

As a lover of food, I found that the service compounded what could have been an lovely evening. As a result, we will not visit your restaurant again.

My guests and I enjoyed a birthday dinner on a recent Saturday night at Bistro Napa. The service was outstanding. We did not feel rushed at all and all of our needs were met appropriately. The atmosphere was definitely lively but easy enough to hold a conversation. All of our meals were tasty. I highly recommend the Pan-Roasted Wood-Fired BabyArtichokes for an appetizer, the Pan-Roasted Chilean Sea Bass for a main and the Classic Mountain of Strawberry Shortcake for dessert.

We went to the Bistro because of the outstanding reviews and found that the reviewers were understating the issue. It was absolutely spectacular !!! Food was world class and the server was perfect. He really knew his wines, but also knew his bourbons and vermouth. Best Manhattan I've ever had. The expression "memorable" does not even do it justice. We will remember our meal forever.

Second visit for dinner. Each visit was perfect! We came back for happy hour a few days later and that was also exceptional. Our server, Sherwin, at dinner made some great suggestions for dinner. Service is always attentive but not overwhelming... definitely a place to return to!

We were there for a birthday celebration. We had a table of 6. The restaurant was beautifully decorated and the servers were attentive. The noise level was a little high so our party didn’t enjoy conversation as much as we would have liked. The cocktail and wine menu was on a tablet which sounds cool but was cumbersome. The cocktail section required too many clucks just to check out one drink and with only one tablet per table it took forever to look through then pass it to the next person. We gave up and finally 3 of us just ordered a recommended cocktail rather than bother with the menu. At the end of the meal the servers brought out a complimentary dessert for the birthday guest. The cotton candy presentation at the end was charming.

Bistro never fails to impress! Food is always fresh and delicious! There's a wide variety of options to choose. Service has always been with a smile and talk about the extras! For birthdays they provide a fancy cake. On top of that you get their famous cotton candy which is not the cheap kind! Its super fresh! Ambiance is great and perfect for intimate dates or fun with friends. And dont forget their happy hour where you get half off appetizers and drinks! Just an overall great place to be!

We were very disappointed in our dinner at Bistro Napa. We brought our own wine and were told there would be a $25 corkage fee which we think is high but expected to get more than the cork removed. Our server never once came back to pour wine. She was vey inattentive. Did not ask about our meal until the end of the evening (prior to the tip). My husband and I shared a shrimp cocktail and while the shrimp were nice and plump, the sauce (although we were told it was homemade) tasted just like plain Heinz Ketchup. Even cocktail sauce would have been better. The shrimp were served on a bed of white dried noodles which added nothing to the dish. Western Village does a way better shrimp cocktail. We both had one of the Signature dishes - Short ribs and my husband's was okay though he was not impressed with the sauce, mine was very, very fatty. When our server did finally ask about the dinner, I told her about the fatty meat and she said that short ribs are generally on the fatty side. Not in a good restaurant they aren't. I have eaten short ribs in a lot of places and they are generally quite lean. Since the main course was so disappointing we were offered a complimentary dessert and opted for the Strawberry Shortcake. We expected something light but it was like a regular cake with strawberries layered in between the layers. The cake was hard and dry. We ate little of it. We were given a plate of cotton candy with our bill and that was delightful. I was with a group of women yesterday and we were talking about restaurants and I shared our experience. Another woman said she heard their chef went to another restaurant in the Atlantis and the last 2 meals they had there were also disappointing and like us, won't be going back.

This was my first time to Bistro Napa and it did not disappoint. We started by having cocktails at the bar, which were well made. We then had dinner, which was tasty from start to finish. Our server Romeo was great. He made sure we were taken care of all night. We also enjoyed our conversation with Mark. I believe he was the manager or GM. We will definitely be back. Thanks Bistro Napa!

We went to Napa Bistro to have a long slow relaxed meal and it turned out to be just perfect.
Our waiter allowed us to order, receive and eat a course before we ordered the next one. He never pressured us, but he also never disappeared on us either. The noise is a little loud, in our opinion, for a true special dining experience, but it really didn’t distract from being able to hold a quiet conversation.
The food, especially the short ribs, was wonderfully prepared, and beautifully presented. We had some amazing oysters on the half shell, and the potato bisque soup was thick, creamy and so satisfying. The short ribs were so rich that we were very pleased that we had shared the dish.
We will be back many more times.
Thank you Napa Bistro for an amazing evening.
