Fantastic dining experience! My wife had the Soupe à l'Oignon and Boeuf Bourguignon (her favorite). I had the soup special and Steak Frites. The food was excellent! Our server, Josh, was friendly and was of great assistance in making our selections.

I would HIGHLY recommend this restaurant!

We had a very nice meal. Bistro style.

Tomato soup in a puff pastry not only delicious but a beautiful presentation. A must.

Steak tartare was exceptional. Nice touch with raw egg on top.

Escargot was fair. The greens on top were a bit overwhelming.

This lovely restaurant is the perfect French Bistro - small and cozy - fire in fireplace - VERY French - best of all the food is amazing and unique - started with the duck liver mousse served with crisp toast and it was yummy with a hint of cognac - then an amazing rabbit with pappardelle peas and mushrooms - prices are a bit high but worth every penny - can’t wait to go back!

Bistro Jeanty has an excellent reputation. But Thankgiving evening was not a good evening.
Disappointed with their Thanksgiving special which was a Roasted Guinea Hen,Chantrelle & Chestnut
stuffing with sage jus. It was horribly dry and the meat was tough!! On top of that, they charged
$38 for this special. Never again!!

Always wonderful. The patio could have been decorated for Thanksgiving/holidays as our view was of an ugly green tarp on the patio. Otherwise French authentic and excellent!

The food was so-so. Beet salad was excellent. Brussel sprouts has large bacon pieces but not crispy, lots of fat. Needs balsamic added for flavor. Mussels were not good. Sat us outside on a cold day when I had a reservation for a week. I wanted indoors. Staff insisted it would be warm with overhead heaters. The people next to us asked for the heaters to be turned off so they did so not comfortable on our Thanksgiving lunch.

Wonderful meal at Bistro Jeanty on Thanksgiving Day. I had the sole with butter caper sauce and mashed potatoes, and my husband the beef stew. Shared a beet salad that was divine. It was perfect in every way.

Most of the food was delicious and service was awesome. However, white truffle risotto was way undercooked. We were seated at the front so it was noisy as people came and left.

We always go to Bistro Jeanty when in Napa. This visit was the exception. Orders were screwed up. Brought onion soup instead of tomato after they tried to bring our entrees. Sent entrees back. Then they ignored us for 40 minutes. Brought entrees finally and the food was ‘meh’

Not impressed and this was a first

.Great ambiance for friends and family gathering. We ordered one of their famous dishes in the menu, Duck Cassoulet and it taste good but i wish the can be slightly less watery.
Overall its not a very fine but certainly is a cozy french cuisine , and i recommend to save some room and end the meal with their dessert, the rum raisin bread pudding is must try.

We visit this restaurant every year. Food is excellent but service level has deteriorated. Wine was late. We were almost done with appetizers when it was brought to us, only after reminded a waiter. Place was noisy.

Brought the fiancé for her first Bistro Jeanty experience. Tomato bisque is always awesome. Tired the croque madame for the first time and it was delicious paired with our rabbit and salmon dishes. Dessert was also delicious. The service is always wonderful. Come to the Valley and eat here!
