Best French food. It makes me feel in Paris. Every time we come to Napa Valley we visit this restaurant, and we love it.

We went to celebrate our anniversary to Jeanty-s. The service was flawless, the food excellent and the thoughtfulness of the management is unforgettable. Little vanilla ice cream with a candle on the house meant a lot to us!
Great experience. We’ll be back to try other specialty on the menu.
Vive la France! 😍

Outstanding service during our most recent experience at Jeanty! Our server and the team were flawless in helping us navigate specials, pacing our experience, and removing/replacing items promptly.
The beet salad and the Lyonnaise salad were terrific. Cassoulet was the best we’ve enjoyed outside of France. The apple tart was a perfect dessert to end our lunch in this wine country gem.

Our group of 4 had a very good meal at Bistro Jeanty. Classic bistro fare, very well prepared. The tomato soup is a must try and the moule frites were very tasty. Everyone in my group enjoyed all of their apps and mains.

We were excited to come here as it was recommended by our hotel. We got there and our reservation time was delayed. They really seemed over booked the whole place was full and very noisy. They let people sit down that came after us and I heard their reservation was after our time. The hostess was not friendly, seemed frazzled and was drinking at the hostess table. The hostess told us that 2 tables got up at the same time and we would be seated soon. But instead we had to wait, she then came and said to everyone they are too busy and the kitchen was stopping letting tables sit to catch up. I have never heard that happen before in my life. The server was not great, he was supposed to get us water and more wine but never did. We had to ask someone else. The food came out and my husbands was good but mine was just average and needed better seasoning. I had the stewed beef special.

Food and service met our very high expectations for a classic French restaurant in Napa. Intimate dining area, strong menu and exceptionally well prepared. The staff hustles, are very pleasant and helpful with a recommendation or two. While we brought our own wine, their bar is well stocked for patrons.

Wonderful authentic French cuisine. The staff was very welcoming to everyone and made sure to acknowledge special occasions. We celebrated our 32nd anniversary there, and if we can’t make it to Paris, will celebrate our 33rd anniversary there as well!

We went to celebrate 2 birthdays as my girl friend loves this place and really enjoys the food! The food was simply amazing. We were a group of 4 and ordered the tomato soup which was phenomenal. I ordered the warm goat cheese salad which was good nothing spectacular but as a vegetarian there were limited options. The rest of the group ordered the sole fish and the filet mignon steak which was finger licking good apparently!
Only thing about the service I would say it felt rushed and they did not wait till all of us had finished the first course to bring out the main course. Very unlike a French restaurant.

Head waiter had too many tables to service. Service was very slow. Took roughly 60 minutes to receive our entree after finishing our appetizer. We have been here 3 previous times and this time the head waiter was overwhelm with the number of tables he was assigned.

The dining experience was wonderful as always!! However, when making the reservation, I specifically noted that it was a birthday celebration for my sister-in-law, Carolyn Santi. Then when I confirmed the reservation on Friday, I again requested that the server be aware that it was a birthday celebration. Yet, at no time did anyone in the restaurant acknowledge that fact, in any way, to our table.

Regards,

Christopher S. Taylor

We’ve been eating at Bistro Jeanty for almost 3 decades, whenever we’re in the area. Today we had a late lunch/early supper starting at 2 pm. We had excellent service, lovely, attentive staff. The food was off the charts DELICIOUS!!! We all left saying it was one of the best meals of our lives! That’s saying a LOT for this well traveled foodie family!!! I thought I knew what I was going to order, but then I saw on the menu they had Bourgignon Chanterelles, how could I pass that up? My mother, a French master of cuisine made boeuf Borgignon for our family. I gave up meat 45 years ago and have always longed for the rich flavors of this dish. I took one bite and thought, “No way!” SUPERB!! I sat there until I happily cleaned my plate! The portobellos were generous and served like petite filets, perfect texture, and the veggies were all spot on! But the sauce, oh my goodness the sauce, was sheer perfection! Merci beaucoups!!!
