It was amazing, but I had to eat my meal fast because sitting outside it was getting cold. I wish there was a way to keep the plates hot outside
This is a pretty little bistro with outdoor tables and heat lamps tastefully situated. The entrees were very, very good. They have a nice adult beverage and wine selection. Our server could not have been more friendly and accommodating.
We'll be back!
Maria was our server and she was outstanding. Took our experience to another level. Thank you Maria
Just glad we were able to get out for lunch with all the restrictions. The restaurant was doing everything they could to provide outdoor dining in December. Thanks and good luck making it through the States restrictions.
The food was amazing! I definitely recommend brunch! Will definitely be coming back for dinner.
Waitress was very friendly. Cute setup for outdoor dining. Delicious food.
Zero complaints. Everything was delicious, well made, service was great. We’ll be back.
The food was PHENOMENAL!!
Lovely outdoor dining experience. They had heaters which were moved around to aid in keeping diners warm. (I would recommend they purchase a couple more though to accommodate the whole space).
Our server was wonderful. Friendly and on top of things.
The food was good. What you expect for the Napa area and the price tag. The butternut squash risotto was a highlight and surprisingly light for a risotto.
Been here for brunch on a separate occasion which was delicious as well.
Would recommend to anyone interested in their menu.
Coy and Maria were the best servers. The food was delicious.
Just chose this place for brunch from opentable on the way out of town with our wives and we all loved it.
Adequate but unremarkable food. The service was a bit awkward. The table beside us was awful - kids old enough to know better than to be yelling and carrying on. Parents who were oblivious or actively answering phone calls while one kid couldn’t stop yelling how he only wanted deviled eggs (not on the menu!). Not the restaurant’s fault, but it does seem to draw the opposite of what we are looking for in Napa dining.
Fabulous meal! The service was outstanding and the food excellent. They are doing a great job letting their patrons safe in this crazy Covid time.
Everything was awesome!!
The reservations were for outdoor dining but they set us sit inside. Everyone was quite happy with their dinner choices. A great experience.
Our sever clearly did not care about us.
Great service and food. Been coming here for years and I have never once left disappointed.
Come to Napa to visit once a year and Napa Bistro is always a must for dinner usually more then once diring our stay here
I felt super safe. The staff wore masks and I saw the manager disinfecting tables between customers. They have a nice “covid-outdoor” seating. I would go again.
This is our second time here and we enjoyed both our food and service. Pedro was our server and I had the halibut the first time we visited. I loved it so much and wanted to order again but found out it was no longer on the menu. Pedro was so kind and went out of his way to ask the chef which I did not ask him to even do...but he did and they were able to make it for me! I was thrilled. We tried the calamari which was slightly bland but good, the sea bass cakes and my husband had the rib eye special which was so good too! We tried dessert and shared the butterscotch pudding. This has become one of our favorite spots for a date night. Highly recommend this place. We want to try the brunch someday. Service is awesome, everyone is very nice:) thank you!
Napa Valley Bistro is my go-to spot when family and friends visit from out of town. Chef Bernardo's dishes are all exquisite and refined, yet exceedingly approachable. Get the fish tacos!
Very polite and welcoming staff, delicious food and able to enjoy a lovely, safe time using outdoor seating during pandemic.
Was empty so we were intially concerned, but food was excellent. Would definitely return.
FABULOUS FOOD, GREAT SERVICE, MUXIC ACROSS THE STREET WAS A LITTLE LOUD BUT ALL IN ALL A REALLY FUN TIME.
Our reservation was for 7pm on a Saturday and we were seated upon arrival. The table was outside as we requested and a good band was playing, ambiance was good. There was no table cloth on the table and waiter did not provide one until well within our mealtime. He could have at least offered a place mat for us. We noticed a few other tables did not have table cloths. The establishment was out of beet salad and halibut, both of which is why my wife and I visited the Bistro. It took 20 minutes for our drinks to arrive after ordering. The soup, salad and appetizer were brought to us at the same time. My wife had pasta, which had little garlic, but was edible. I had the pork chop, which was not edible. Overcooked and hard as a hockey puck. The establishment did not charge us for the port chop entree. We enjoyed the ambiance and band, but the food and service was sub-par.
What a wonderful gem. I had family in town and we wanted to go out for dinner. The menu has something for everyone. My grandson and son in law both had their special Mac and cheese and almost licked the bowls. Others had the Surf/turf, delicious and the scallops. The food was fresh and delicious with serving size just right.
A lovely experience, give them a try.
Wonderful waitress! Excellent homemade bread.
We were a party of 3 celebrating a friend’s birthday. Lovely outside seating & great food.
A special Napa gem...make it part of your visit to wine country. You will be delighted!
First time and looking forward to going there again. Vanessa took good care of us.
REMY,GABY AND HER SISTER ARE SUCH SWEET HEARTS! HAD A GREAT TIME
It was a Saturday night and there was live music being played across the street that got pretty loud and distracting at times. Service was wonderful, food was great. One thing that’s kind of silly, but still bugged me a little. We were the only table without linens. It took away from the fine dining bistro experience just a bit. We’d still go back though!
Bernardo is not only personable but his food is incredible! Clay was excellent and really helped make our night great! Great discovery for us, we will be back!!
Enjoyed Date night here, the food was great and there was live music!
I am a hospitality professional (hotels) and have enjoyed 30+ years welcoming visitors to my hometown. I not only check-in/check-out guests but frequently play concierge when they have no plans for dining. I was a guest at NV Bistro for the first time early 2018 and I was so impressed with everything: the ambience, menu, service - it was all top notch. So when my birthday came around on the 15th of this month I wanted to have dinner at NV Bistro, as I have recommended it many many times and booked tables for guests over the last two years. Never once did a single person come back and tell me my recommendation was a bad one.
That being said, I was very disappointed. I booked my table via this site, and clicked on 'BIRTHDAY' the area asking what sort of occasion it was. Upon arrival we stood in the doorway for a couple of minutes before being greeted. The place was not busy, so it was immediately a turn off not to be greeted right away. We had selected outdoor seating so when we followed the greeter back outside we weren't seated; we were told to pick anywhere. The outdoor seating wasn't terrible, except for when the sun was setting. For about 10-15 minutes it was impossible to see anything for the person looking west (me). I had to ask my server if she could open an umbrella that was a couple tables over to block the sun. The fish & chips I ordered was just okay, nothing special to write about, other than I could have got the same thing for about $10 less and wouldn't have been obligated leave a tip. Usually when someone mentions it's their birthday when they make a reservation it is acknowledged. Not the case. I was just happy to be out spending time with my husband but the whole dinner was a let down, leaving me reluctant to sent guests here in the future :(
Our server was really great, attentive and pleasant. The food was great although maybe a little pricey but its Napa.
Wonderful menus , superb chef!
Love the restaurant! Always delicious seasonal and fresh. Little misunderstanding with our appetizer but they made it right. Will be back again soon.
Enjoyed my experience..I will go back again..Can't really give 5 stars until I see if the consistency is there..Next time..Mike Ledesma
We love this place. It is a hidden gem in downtown Napa. Clay, the manager, is so great. He’s always involved, helps in every way, and has a great and caring personality. The food is and has always been fabulous! The staff is friendly, attentive and engaged. Go, and you will be hooked, like we are. We are devotees to this place, and hope you give it a try.
