Our favorite Napa place to eat! Any time we have out of town guests that is where we take them.

In addition to having a wonderful dinner - pasta and seafood favorites, the restaurant manager actually chased us down on the sidewalk after our meal to personally deliver the take-home container that I had left on our table! Wonderful service, great food and atmosphere.

Great menu with a good variety of options to suit anyone. Had the Crab Louis salad and it's the best Louis dressing I've ever had. Nicely accompanied by crunchy vegetables and a generous portion of crab. Excellent friendly service, nice atmosphere and easy parking.

I just wish I lived closer so I could dine here more often!

Great food and service! Went for my son’s birthday and was happy how kid/family friendly the restaurant is.

I took my mother there for lunch because she was craving Scallops.
She loved their seared Scallops!!!
She also loved the Calamari, and the Fish & Chips, substituting sweet potato fries instead of the regular "chips"
I had the Prime Rib Wrap. It was huge!!! and very tasty, served with house made, kettle potato chips. Next time, no bell pepper for me (personal preference)
The butterscotch pudding was okay.
The iced tea was fresh brewed, not the instant stuff out of a soda machine.
The food was very good, and we look forward to returning and trying all of the other menu items.
The best part of all, was the server.
She !!!
was !!!
incredible !!!
I wish I could remember her name.
It was so refreshing to have a server that anticipated your every need.
It's been years since we've received such wonderful service.
She was very knowledgeable of the menu and how everything was prepared.
I don't think we were able to stump her with any of our questions.
Kudos to the Chef and kitchen staff, and to the Front of House Manager for having such a superb serving staff.
We truly enjoyed our lunch, even with the temporary construction projects happening just outside the door. It's going to look nice when they finish.

Great appetizers. Caesar salad was good. Salmon just 'ok'. Fried chicken and Foley Mignon very good. Beignets disappointing (stuffed donut holes) and overpriced. Service was good though.

Service was excellent. Food was out quickly. Michael was our waiter. He was very friendly and did a good job :-)

Napa Valley Bistro is one of our favorite local restaurants. The food is perfectly fresh and preparations are delicious. The service is so personable we feel perfectly comfortable there. We brought two bottles of older wine, and when one turned out to be bad, John L. re-bottled it and opened the other without missing a beat. No corkage fee on the first bottle.

They evidently didn't check us in so I had to send an email correction to Open Table that I showed up.
Their brunch is only on Sundays - would be nice if it was the whole weekend.
The salad/ahi was very good, but the bread of our Reuben sandwich was obviously burned so it shouldn't have been served to us.
The sandwich was tasty except for the bread, but the meat was more like bacon and I prefer thin slices of corned beef that are easier to eat and more tender.
The wait staff was efficient but not very friendly.

This was our 2nd time dining here and as always, we enjoyed it. It's location is off the beaten path from the main street and not a lot of foot traffic in the area at night. The staff has always been welcoming and friendly.

Hubby had the filet mignon which was nice and tender, very tasty. I tried the scallops which was cooked perfectly and very tender. It's another place we like to return to dine at when we're visiting Napa which isn't too often.

Just a wonderful experience. Nice to have a place in Napa for a good meal with nice ambiance without dropping. $100/person.
