    Great location and excellent food! Being french myself it was amazing being able to get so many french classic dishes with such a high level of execution. Atmosphere was nice, warm and cozy. Great for a big party or date night They have a great outdoor sitting area, dog friendly and heated :) Will definitely come back for more. Also the service was very smooth

    It was a 3rd time dining at bistro Jeanty. I didn’t love it this time around, but maybe it’s because I eat differently now, more clean and mostly Mediterranean style diet. The food was too rich for my liking, heavy sauces. Popular place, no longer the type of food that I like.

    We loved our experience dining here. The food was delicious and the service was great. Very friendly staff. We ordered the deviled eggs as an appetizer and had the bread service. I had the fish and my husband had the short ribs with noodles. They were nice portion sizes. We ended our meal with the brandy ice and lemon tart. It was busy but we didn't feel like we waited for any part of the meal. We enjoyed and would go back!

    We decided to go out and celebrate my husband's birthday. There were 4 of us and we dined early at 4:45. Our delightful server went over the chalkboard of specials and described each one with great aplomb! We enjoyed cocktails to start. We had the crab appetizer to start and it was amazing. Could have made a meal out of it alone. We also "splurged" on the $6.50 small basket of bread, twice! It amazes me that the restaurants charge for bread these days. We each ordered one of their fabulous salads. I chose the baked goat cheese with harcourt verts (stringbeans) it was quite good. Next was our main couse. We all ordered something different. I ordered the Sole Meuniere which is always a favorite of mine and it did not disappoint. My sister ordered the shortribs which were great, the men ordered the "{jambone" which was a ham sandwich with an egg on top and the other ordered a dish of beans, sausage, duck leg and pork belly....interesting to say the least. And then we could not pass up the profiteroles for dessert. It was a glorious meal and experience. Clearly the food was superb and our server added to wonder of the evening.

    We were a party of four and started with 2 orders of the liver mousse. It was the closest thing to foie Gras, light and sumptuous, smooth and delectable with perfect toast points. I would return just for that. I had the tomato soup, it was creamy and light topped with a large shell of a beautiful puff pastry, buttery flaky goodness. Others enjoyed the French onion soup and escargot. My main was the ribeye, a large, thin cut, flavorful and delicious. Served with a wonderful bernaise and crispy, flavorful thin fries perfect pairing. The others had the stew and returned completely clean bowls, they enjoyed every morsel. Sadly, we were too full for dessert. Fine dining with generous portions, how refreshing. Excellent wine recommendation too, the service was impeccable and attentive. Both welcoming and friendly with the utmost professionalism. A delightful culinary adventure, we will surely return soon.

    I just KNEW I would regret not doubling my efforts to get here! The food was delicious and the Bistro is cozy and energetic - what a happy place! We shared a mix of things: the crab soufflé with lobster sauce, wild mushroom risotto, petrale sole with lemon butter, fries, bread & Normandy butter and for dessert a chocolate mousse crème brûlée. Everything was amazing and I look forward to trying everything on the menu in the coming years!

    Everything was spot on, as usual for Bistro Jeanty. Consistently one of the best dining spots in The Valley! The noise level can be tough so best to request outside if you want to hear a group conversation. Highest recommendation.

    My wife and I are regular visitors to BJ and usually have a lovely experience. This time - lunch on Sunday - not so much. Our server messed up our order (not very complicated, I might add) resulting in my wife not receiving her entree when I received mine. Had to ask a few times for refills on my water (only drink I was consuming) and felt ignored for much of the visit (restaurant was sparsely populated). Overall, this visit was not great...I believe our server needs better training!

    Delicious food from their appetizers and main dishes. We had duck liver mousse with brioche which was good. Had the tasty beef cheek stew that was tender. The croissant bread pudding was yummy. Our server was attentive and had our dishes out right away when we said we had a wine tasting reservation coming up soon. Will come back soon to try out the other dishes.
