Food excellent. Fish & chips rivaled Legal Seafood Boston, flaky batter, tender cod. Fries thin & crisp. Friend had the veg risotto, delicious, but the grilled chicken on top was dry. Service good. Ambiance nice, comfy, friendly, decor OK. Excellent wine selections at very reasonable markups from retail. Dog friendly. Restroom so-so on cleanliness. Would definitely go back.

We were celebrating our anniversary (I put this in the reservation) but neither the hostess or server acknowledged this. The food was good but was definitely missing something (the rigatoni was a bit dry and needed more sauce, and the shishito peppers with the scallops was a very odd flavor but the rest of the dish was great). Also asked for bread but was not brought any. The tables and atmosphere is very bland (tables could use candles). Definitely could have been better overall.

Staff were very respectful of staying masked, making us more comfortable than another place we recently dined. Food was as good as we remembered it. We look forward to returning soon!

Like most of Napa, parking can be a challenge especially since the Bistro has converted their street parking to outside service. Give yourself time. Small plates and salad were our choice for lunch and found it excellent.

This is a Bistro, so my ratings are for Bistro fare, not fine dining. That being said the food was all freshly prepared with quality ingredients with super friendly service at reasonable prices. We had a sidewall table, which was fine, but a bit in the way of traffic. I would highly recommend for a casual, quality meal.

There were too many fruit flies due to the open door and one landed in my wife’s wine. No offer for more/new glass and we had to ask for a new glasses. The halibut was a patty and horrible. However the scallops were awesome. We will not go there again.

Our server Gabi was helpful and attentive-super friendly. Even chased a customer who forgot her handbag and got it to her! The food was fresh and timing of drinks, appetizer, entree perfect. They have Soju for cocktails, not a full bar but good wine list and beers.

Napa Valley Bistro is a very special place. It’s a family owned and operated restaurant and it shows. The food quality is outstanding and the prices are very reasonable when compared to other restaurants in the area. I’d recommend the tuna and mushroom flat bread as appetizers.

Good food and great service. Definitely could improve the surroundings. Dining room dark and drab. Outdoor was better but could use some little lights and plants.

Sunday Brunch is a must! Bottomless Mimosas option made with a spanish Cava are delicious and balanced in flavor. Lox Benedict with a lemon holindase is a favorite, and comes with a side of hash browns. Few beers on tap, some bottled options. Many wines by the glass, or bottle are an option too. Ask for the wine list. A nice casual white cloth american bistro. Yum!
