  • Great for outdoor dining
  • Charming
  • Neighborhood gem
Evangeline is the casual bistro for which Napa Valley has been waiting: a destination with garden patio dining and world-class food, drink, and service.

Classic bistro items such as raw oysters, croque madame, smoked salmon, and steak frites--each of them in the most flavorful form you've ever seen or tasted. Daily specials like shrimp etouffee, gumbo ya-ya, and fried chicken offer glimpses into the Chef's French and Creole repertoire.

An extensive array of wines by the glass is anchored by our draft wine system, which serves perfect pours on exclusive wines seldom offered except by the bottle. Our local beers and liquors will get your toe tapping at the comfortable, chic bar.

The jewel of Evangeline is the trellised outdoor patio, with heaters and fans for outdoor dining in all but the most forbidding weather. Dappled sunlight and lively music make it a Napa Valley idyll worth the drive up-valley. Free parking abounds across the street.

    Disappointed in food. Service was okay. Outdoor dining was the best part of the meal.

    Unfortunately their version of Cioppino is not what I was expecting nor did I even realize some Cioppino recipes use noodles and salmon (which they were out of).

    Would have preferred indoor seating as it was near 100 degrees outside, but they were not running their A/C for some reason.

    Setting was lovely, but the quality of the food did not match the price. Our tomato salad appetizer appeared to have been sitting in the fridge overnight (sliced cucumbers were dry to the touch, tomatoes were cold and mushy). Wagyu beef burger was well done. These are things I would be disappointed by even if prepared at a lower priced restaurant. We hope they can improve the food prep because the ambiance was nice.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our risotto with king salmon, and jumbo shrimp that was cooked to perfection, The New Orleans vibe very comforting. We had not been back here for years but it was every bit as good as we remember👌

    My wife and I dined here. I had the gem salad and she had the special salad. We were tired from a day of wine tasting, so we split an entree of the fried chicken. For dessert, we split the ice cream. Everything was very good. The chicken was nice and crispy and not overly greasy. The salads were fresh. The ambience in the courtyard was perfect for a nice dinner.

    My wife and I came here during our trip to Calistoga for our 2nd wedding anniversary. We split the beet salad which was amazing, and we split the pork chop. Let me tell you what! This pork chop is to die for, it was so tender and sexy and I dream about it often. The staff was super friendly and they made our night spacial with a surprise pour of champagne and a surprise desert, which was the creme brule. Everything was really good, and highly suggest to sit out on the back patio.

    The food felt like a home cooked meal from my southern grandmother. I do not think there is better complement. Wine was also good and affordable.

    We had a delightful meal in their lovely garden patio. The service was friendly and efficient. The food was well prepared and quite tasty. We really enjoyed the Little Gems salad the heirloom tomato plate. The only thing missing from the shrimp étoufée was a few more hush puppies! Yum. The music, though a bit loud, added to the New Orleans feel. They had a very limited wine selection (odd for the location) but we enjoyed what we ordered. A fun and filling dining experience.
