The food and service is the highlight of our experience. We all appreciate the chef and staff to share the fruits of your creations, and perfessional services to enhance the patrons' experiences. The bartender... i didnt have a direct interaction with him during the dinner, but he really went out his way to help me ... it was remarkable. Thanks again the chef and the whole staff!

Our table in the bar area was extremely noisy due to a table
Of 8 with plenty of liquor coursing through their brains. Could not hear ourselves talk.

Bistro Jeanty had been our favorite French, authentic bistro in the Napa Valley (Yountville) for decades. We are here for my birthday week and visiting Festival Napa Valley and have rated there for two lunches and a dinner. It is that good. My wide is French and I am a Francophile so this is a serious review. It is mid July and Heirloom Tomato Salad is perfect, but soups and stews, salads and desserts and a great bar and wine list make as good as or better than its internationally famous neighbors, because it is casual and fun. But try them all. Yountville is all good. See you there!

Our server recommended the steak frites and he was so right. They steak was perfectly cooked and every bite was incredibly juicy. My son love his Croq Madame as well as the fries. Overall I would highly recommend this place. The place is cozy and totally makes you feel like you are in France. Love Love Love this place.

The escargot, tomato soup en croute, and sole meunière are to die for. I’m usually not a fan of “team service”, but this team is extraordinary…it’s like a choreographed ballet. Thanks for another memorable evening.

Every part of our meal was delicious and skillfully prepared. The rack of lamb was tender, juicy and bright pink - outstanding! The scallops were grilled perfectly. For a large meal, choose rack of lamb. The scallops entree was a much smaller meal. Perfect, because we shared them! My cocktail, grapefruit, was excellent - citrus-y and not too sweet. Our duck liver mousse and heirloom tomato salad were both winners!! And the conclusion - the chocolate croissant bread pudding - was hot and so decadent with a scoop of ice cream - not over-chocolate-y. Our server was attentive and paced our meal so we had time to really enjoy everything. This was our 55th anniversary, and we certainly would love to return for our 56th!!
