Had brunch. Food was generally good and enjoyed the Bloody Mary with Shrimp and Bacon. Pricing is on the expensive side, but this is downtown Napa.

GIVEN COVID-19 AND THE OUTDOOR SEATING ON THE SIDWALK, EVERYTHING WENT PRETTY WELL. GOOD FOOD! LIKE THE MUSIC FROM ACROSS THE STREET.

Overall, good meal and we'd return. They have the ability to almost take the entire restaurant outside down the side walk it seems. At times, service seemed to be slower, but it was Saturday so I can appreciate sitting outside in good weather.

This is our fourth time visiting this restaurant and we have been happy with everything we've tried from the homemade bread to the filet mignon, scallops and the Cajun shrimp appetizer. Ample outdoor heating units makes it bearable on a breezy cold night!

Went there on a Open Table recommendation. It was 3pm on a Friday. Because of the pandemic we ate outside. Very little street noise and because it was a sunny day no issues with the cold as stated in other reviews. I had my once a year Kobe steak, wife had scallops. They were very good.

Outside seating only with comfortable table spacing. A little noisy & chilly but the food was excellent. The rigatoni with added grilled chicken was ample and very flavorful. The chopped salad with grilled shrimp was perfect.

We've only eaten here once before, about 2 years ago. The food and service were outstanding. A wide variety of food and drinks and well prepared.

Plenty of parking nearby too, which can be challenging in downtown Napa.

I’ve always had a good experience at Napa Valley bistro I really can’t complain. The service is always great as usual but my fries were semi-warm and with the cold weather they were cold after two or three minutes on my plate. Besides that my food was great!

Poorly prepared to be open. Overbooked or understaffed. Received free drink while we waited, but wait was long to be seated, almost an hour for appetizers and almost an hour for 40 mins for main course after. Food was good tho.

Valentines date. Outdoor dinning set up for pandemic rules was good. Heat lamps kept us cozy and the staff was friendly and helpful. The food was a bit bland and not as tasty as I had hoped. It was just ok.

We love this place! It’s a hidden gem in Napa. Fabulous food—-we love the empanadas, soup of the day (all are delicious), all the salads, and have eaten many specials and entrees. They are all winners.
Clay is a great manager, the chefs are so talented, and the service is wonderful. They are set up for outdoor service—heaters, protection from the elements, mild Northern California weather.
Support this place—-Napa needs this type of fabulous food...

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!

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.

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.

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.
