Menu options are many with a number of new items available. Servers are professional and pace the courses so one can enjoy the experience. It is easy to order too much since, from appetizers through soups and salads to the main course, there are choices hard to pass up. Desserts are especially large and even I, a confirmed over-eater, couldn't finish.

Honestly it’s a great restaurant and the food is amazing. The only complaint I have is that there was a group of middle aged women at a table who obviously never get out of the house anymore, so they decided to act like drunken fools which ruined the atmosphere to an extent.

Bistro Napa is our favorite restaurant. My husband and I have eaten there many times. The ambiance, service and food is excellent. Every dish that we have ordered was delicious. My husband ordered the Veal Piccata, which he loved. I wanted to try something different, so I ordered the Crab Stuffed Chili Relleno. I did not care for it. Not enough crab or cheese. I ate about half. The taste was ok, not great. We will be eating there in the future. I'll just order dishes that I'm familiar with.

We had made a reservation, and we got there early. There was no problem getting seated early. The restaurant manager was very accommodating. We were in a very quiet part of the restaurant. The service was good, and the food was excellent. The wine list was very good with many options by the glass. We will dine here again.

Food was a little off this time. One dish, the relleno, came out cold! It was fixed but we weren’t offered a discount or other attempt to make up for the issue and delay for the re-fire, simply an apology from the chef delivered by our waiter. We assume the chef was busy, but generally expect more of a restaurant of this level. The service was OK, a little slow at times. The risotto with the chicken was a little greasy and had separated. The chicken itself was very good. One guest very much enjoyed their pepperoni flatbread. The escargot wasn’t as delicious as usual...maybe a new recipe and we prefer the previous garlicky dish. The snails did taste fresh though. All of the dishes, except the flatbread, required healthy additions of salt. Overall we were a bit disappointed this visit.

Since I think my friends would like a quieter and more pleasant/“elegant” atmosphere for dinner, I would caution them if they want to have an anniversary (e.g.) dinner at Napa Bistro.

Our experience was good overall with an outstanding meal for a great value. The service could be improved given this type of dining experience should have you leaving the restaurant with a smile on your face. However, I would recommend this to anyone looking for good wine, good food and great value.

This is one of our favorite places. Everyone is friendly, service is great, food is interesting, sometimes unique, satisfying. Cioppino is my favorite, but apparently I don't know how to spell it. And the "sexy fries" are the best.

The food was ok but not as great as we have had it before. The waiter was not very nice and at some points down right rude. There were 2 large parties surrounding us so it was also extremely loud and at times difficult to talk at our party of 4. We did make reservations so it's not like they just fit us in.

The food was so so. Our sirloin steak was so tough even the steak knife couldn’t cut through it easily. The plates were filled haphazardly. Some had bigger steaks, some were smaller, but they were all supposed to be 8 ounces. Some had more fries, some had less. The wedge salad was pitiful. For $11.00 we expected much better. The lettuce was just strewn on the plate (not a nice wedge) and there was very little bleu cheese and not enough dressing for the amount of iceberg lettuce. Also the salads were not plated with consistent amounts. All in all, very disappointed. Won’t go back again.

We always enjoy our meals at Napa Bistro. This night we had dinner in the main dinning room. My husband and I shared a dinner because we cannot eat as much as we used to. The lamb chops were perfect Two each was fine for us. Our waiter, David, split the dinner for us and presented each of us with two chops and polenta. They always make us welcome. We eat there at least one meal every time we are in Reno.

Bistro Napa did not disappoint. Our reserveations were honored without delay. We were repeatedly welcomed upon arrival. Our booth / table was comfortable. The menu was excellent and interesting, but not overdone. The wine list (via Ipad) was robust with excellent choices. (1/2 half bottles just right for a Frank Family Chard and Quintessa Red - both served correctly) The service was superb and the food was as expected, prepared beautifully. My wife had the filet that she loved and I had the sea bass that was well presented and delicious. All in all an evening to remember. We'll be back.
