Our service was horrendous. Brian, our server, purposefully avoided us and the manager took over.

Food was one of my fav experiences.

40 year anniversary. It is our favorite local spot. We are so happy it is open again. Best foi in the west! The smaller seating, spread out, was nice yet it felt unnatural without the exciting vibe of former times. We Highly Recommend you visit and enjoy a taste of France without the 14 hr flight.

Food and service were wonderful as usual. We felt very safe virus wise. The tables are well spaced. Staff were all observing all required safety features. It was truly outdoor dining with all the patio sides rolled up.

It was good to back out to lunch after a year away.

The food was fine, but the service was poor. They had us wait ~25 min past our reservation and were rude on multiple occasions.

I don’t think anything stood out for our group other than the butter lettuce and duck liver mousse. We had the Dungeness crab soufflé, escargots, Coq au vin with butter noodles, and prime rib. For comparison, we had Bouchon bistro the next day and thought the French food there was much better!

Fantastic as always!! That's part of this place's wonder - the food is so consistently good!!! Tried the crispy pigs feet in mustard sauce! It is prepared by braising, separating the meat from bone, reshaped, breaded and deep-fried. Wonderful!!!

My husband and I had a wonderful lunch date at Bistro Jeanty - so many delicious dishes to chose from. We couldn’t resist the signature tomato soup and salad Lyonnaise to start - followed by steak frites and the special pasta with lobster and a whisky cream
Sauce to dream of. The wines and service were excellent as well!
Looking forward to our next date lunch there!

Very pleasant dining experience in the outdoor covered and heated patio. We had the mussels, sole and steak frites. All were outstanding and the mussels were plentiful. Service was attentive but not intrusive.

One of the best restaurants in the Bay Area (no gray area) . . . not to mention the closest restaurant you’ll find to a stellar bistro in Paris, France.

They offer all of the classic French bistro dishes . . . combined with stellar upbeat service, great wine list and a full bar = you’ll be talking about Bistro Jeanty for many years to come !!!

No, we do not own the restaurant (LOL)

Pictured is the absolutely unreal creamy tomato soup in a flaky puff pastry . . . amazing rack of Lamb . . . and an over the top chocolate bread pudding with a scoop of cherry/chocolate chunk ice cream.

If you’re looking for a memorable meal (not just a place to eat) Bistro Jeanty will crush it out of the park.

There is a beauty and joy to the fact that some things never change. Usually derided as “Same s*&t, another day”, in a world of turmoil, tumult and unwanted and unscheduled change, it is truly wonderful to enjoy a routine luxury.

I’ve enjoyed a many a meal at Bistro Jeanty and so happy to report that the experience is as genuine, authentic and delicious as ever. Add to that a blissful sense of liberty and freedom to be dining in one of your favorite restaurants...HEAVEN.

Great staff – our waiter made a great suggestion of a “Paper Airplane” cocktail – delicious and fun to try something new. Great meal, great service, great fun. Highly recommend.

Great experience. Service was top notch. Food was delicious. Like the name of the restaurant, it has that Bistro feel. Don’t let it fool you though. We ate at 3 Michelin star restaurants during our trip and Bistro Jeanty was our favorite. We cannot wait to be back. A drink was added to our bill though (that we didn’t order).

During Covid 19 they are only servings outdoors. The first table they gave us was near the exit door. This was too cold for us. After checking our waiter was able to change our table to a warmer spot. Since the seating is very limited we were very impressed with this.

Our Waiter was outstanding! The food was delicious but the soup could have been hotter. We ordered both the tomato and the french onion and neither one was very hot. Otherwise everything was very good.

The food and service was amazing as usual.
I ordered the sole and it was divine, it came with olive oil mashed potatoes and they were so yummy. I would have liked a vegetable with the dish, like asparagus. Just felt like something was missing from my plate.

We have never been disappointed with the food at Jeanty. If you have not tried the pike dumplings you must! Everything we've had there compares well with The French Laundry but the price and ambiance of Jeanty are much friendlier.

Love this place. I've been coming for years and even having to sit outside it did not disappoint. We had dinner and we were comfortable with the outside temperature. Great recommendations from the waiter. My pepper steak was fantastic, as well as the trout salad, and apple tart.

That outdoor patio area with heaters is no different from their regular setup, except that only every other table was in use. It was comfortable and warm enough. The food and service were up to their usual high standards. Except for the mask precautions and social distancing it was quite nearly the normal dining experience we were seeking.
