One of my local favorites. Indoor seating is great for a romantic night out.

The salads and dessert were perfection. The main courses were fine. Filet was good, entrecote frites...frites were perfect, steak was fine, warm at best, and the sauce was cool and congealed. Petrale sole was nice. The desserts were so good, and the salads good. The waiter barely even spoke to us.
Honestly, when you could go to a hundred other over-priced restaurants in Napa Valley, it'll probably be a while before we come back to this one. We've been here before. It's one of my mom's faves. Last time we came the server was the best. I wish we'd had him again. Too bad.

We treated a couple of friends to dinner in honor of some milestone birthdays. Our server was charming and promptly helped us to order champagne and wine. For dinner we started with esgargots, foie pate, pate de campagne , and the special dungeon ness crab soufflé. All were delicious, the foie on brioche melted in our mouths, the pate was rich and dense with pork and flavor, the escargots were garlicky and delicious, and the soufflé was surprisingly light and packed with fresh crab.we then moved on to dinner of steak tartare, filet mignon au poivre and a beet salad. All were rich and delicious but also light enough to leave room for profiteroles and cheese with poached pear. The birthday girl, who is British, said it was h to e best French meal of her life. Even better than in France! Bravo Bistro Jeanty!

An old favorite. Glad to see its still around and glad that its still open during the last days of the pandemic. Fun and charming atmosphere and delicious food. Reminds one of being in Provence.

We've been to Bistro Jeanty on a number of occasions and have always had great food and service. This time the food was great, but the service was non-existent. The server rarely came to our table to see how we were doing. Even worse when we asked another employee (hostess?) to get him rather than asking how she might help she just said I'll tell him and walked away. While we still had a great evening with friends, we left talking more about the service than the restaurant itself. Will we return? Probably, but with all the fine establishments in Napa Valley Bistro Jeanty is no longer at the top of our list.

Bistro Jeanty is always exceptional, I have never had a bad meal there. I just tried their beef stew, the one with the cheeks, very tender, you didn’t even need a knife. And their French onion soup is fantastic. I alway go here when I am up here for vacation!

Smoked trout for me and onion soup for my companion. Delicious to the last bite. Crepe Suzette was the perfect dessert. Felt like the French countryside.

Everything about our visit was amazing. We had deviled eggs, crispy pigs feet, beet salad, onion soup, tomato soup, and gnocchi. For dessert we had the chocolate Creme brûlée and rice pudding. There were three of us and we rotated plates because it was all delicious!

This once quaint restaurant no longer carries the charm, service or food quality that it once did. We had called ahead of time to inquire if a dairy allergy could be accommodated. The restaurant assured us that it would. Once we arrived, the waiter seemed disinterested in accommodating the issue, instead pointed us towards 3 or 4 items on the menu (mostly salads) that seemed like a ‘no brainer’. We ordered deviled eggs, duck liver mousse, and the steak tartare, all of which tasted like they had just been taken out of the fridge given the temperature of the items. We were disappointed with that as well as the underwhelming quality of the meat that we got for the steak frites. We left without cashing a fuss as we the waiter was MIA and we didn’t want to deal with it after so many misses.

Crab soufflé was wonderful, so was the sea bass on polenta special. Butter lettuce with vinegar and Dijon melted in the mouth. Unfortunately they did not have the goat cheese dessert but the Normandy triple cheese was good. Waiter’s red win recommendation was fabulous. Nice neighborhood feel French restaurant.
