Family in town!
Always love Bistro Jeanty. Food is out of this world good and you feel like you are in a French bistro.
We were seated by the fire - a special seat according to our server (did we know the owner?). The meal was delicious - a bit heavy. She was disappointed in the medium steak which rather than warm pink was a hot red but the sauce and mushrooms were marvelous. We love French cuisine and has heard great things about the restaurant - it was very nice and pleasant. Tough competition for top billing in the valley and a couple others edged this out by a tad.
Arrived in time for happy hour! Food was fantastic. Oysters were to die for. Scallops were cooked perfectly. Going to make sure we make happy hour when we pick up our nearby club wine!
Wife and I went here based on all the reviews we had read here, as well as on various other sites. We were not disappointed at all, and even exceeded our high expectations. We ordered the tomato soup with puff pastry, bone marrow, foie gras mousse, beet salad and lamb tongue salad - everything was delicious. We will definitely come back here again!
Food was incredible! Try the tomato soup, its like no other around. Had the veal chop and it was amazing.
Service was great. I would recommend requesting the main dining areas when you make a reservation. The outside enclosed area isn't quite as quaint as the inside with the fireplace.
Our waiter so wonderful
Great food! Great service! Definitely a better alternative to Bouchon which is located in the same street.
Steak frites were really good and quenelles nice (though quite subtle flavor - was still great to soak up the sauce with excellent bread) ... lyonnaise salad a bit vinegary (triggering an unexpected allergic gag reaction) and bread pudding would have been better to take the serve's recommendation of the mouse au chocolat. The entree specials had sold out and took a while to get seated, but will go back again. Maybe spoiled by doing similar diners the month before in France, but Jeantry was not as good as I remembered it.
Wonderful re-creation of an experience here over 15 years ago. Bon Appetite
Don't ever order the lamb shank the meat was tough and dry. (It was the special of the day) The escargot was okay. The couscous was great. Our dessert was excellent the best lemon tart I have ever tasted. I think we will give them another chance. This time I will not order any specials.
Excellent food... I loved the tomato soup and chocolate crepe brûlée!!!
Bistro Jeanty is of course a French-influenced restaurant, but based on multiple visits I find the overall experience to be pretentious. The service is seemingly intentionally stuffy and rigid, the food is good but not overly inspiring, and for whatever reason they keep the main seating room uncomfortably warm during the winter. Heaven help you if they seat you by the fireplace. There are better places in the Yountville are for a great meal following some Napa Valley wine-tasting.
Another outstanding meal at one of the best places in the Napa Valley (or anywhere!).
Very friendly and responsive service. I should have known, be wary of some of the menu items, rich and heavy. After a day tasting wines, light food would have been better. My fault not theirs. Just be aware many items on menu are rich and big. Nevertheless, food was very good.
This is our second visit to Bistro Jeanty in the last 10 years - it is worth it each time - love the food, service and reception. See you next time - hopefully sooner this time.
Amazing as usual. We always eat here when visiting the Napa Valley
I would like to try it at lunch. It was very noisy ar dinner
Too much of the sauces; and too much CREAM in tomato soup
We visit Bistro Jeanty each time we are in Yountville. The food is always delicious, well-prepared and well-presented. The servers are always friendly, knowledgable and efficient. It's an energetic, fun and beautifully decorated restaurant with excellent food, wine and service - not to be missed.
The food was delicious: deviled eggs, beet salad, green bean salad, potatoes, glasses of wine, and ice cream...all perfectly prepared. Service was competent. We would have preferred dining inside but the patio was fine.
Classic French bistro cuisine in a comfortable setting. A gem.
We came for a Birthday lunch from Sonoma.
Throughly enjoyed our choice of the Lamb Tangine
and the Petrale Sole as our entrees. Both were delicious.
The wait staff was first rate; attentive and gracious.
We sat near the fireplace and the restaurant was quiet,
even though it was full of diners.
We will be back... and soon!
Food was spectacular, waiter was delightful and all four of us dining to celebrate my birthday had a great time. All of us have dined her many times before, but there is always something fun and new to try. This time it was the tripe stew in homage to Hiro Sone from Terra. Yummn
Bistro Jeanty is 100%reliable. We have been going there for 15 years and hope that it will always be there for us. It is an authentic French dining experience with American size portions. Cassoulet and burgundy are exceptional.
Consistently excellent food and service. Great ambiance. Outdoor seating in late November - can't beat that!
JEANTY HAS ALWAYS BEEN VERY GOOD IN PAST. THIS TIME OUR TOMATO SOUP WAS ONLY WARM, MY BEEF STEW HAD LOTS OF SLIMY FAT IN IT AND A CLOYING TASTE. MY WIFES LAMB'S SHANK WAS BLAND AND SOMEWHAT TASTELESS. THE NOISE LEVEL IN THE MAIN DINING ROOM, AS USUAL, WAS HIGH AND MADE CONVERSATION DIFFICULT (I LIKE TO BE SEATED OUTSIDE -BUT THIS TIME IT WAS COLD AND NOT OPEN) WE' LL BE BACK AND HOPE
Excellent, except that I was served the wrong cassoulet...it was just warm and not hot. Someone grabbed the wrong bowl. Will return....
Always a great meal! Authentic French cuisine. John the bartender is always A+.
Have been going here for years. It's always great. Service is always great. The food is as good as it gets in the Napa Valley.
Annual post Thanksgiving lunch with our family.
The food and service was phenomenal. I was disappointed that we did not sit in the main dining room. We were in the side room with a tin roof. It was pouring on Thanksgiving and I felt some rain. We were a party of 5 and the noise from the rain on a he roof, other people and the wide table made it hard to converse. It also was a little cold even with the heaters on. I will definitely come back for a small table inside. I really think it’s special...very authentic French cuisine.
I would love to have given Bistro Jeanty 5 stars all around. Sadly, that was not our experience on Thanksgiving day.
Our reservation was for 5:30pm, and we were seated promptly. Right away we were almost overwhelmed by the high noise level, especially at the table behind us, where an overly energetic waiter was telling a story. The tables are packed in very closely at this bistro, so there is no escaping the noise. Thankfully, the loud waiter was not our server. Ours was a very delightful young woman.
We dined first on soups, which were both delicious. Mine was the cream of tomato with a puff pastry topping. My husband's was a lovely French onion soup. The bread basket which accompanied the soups had tough and chewy bread, but delicious butter. My "main" was mussels from the "lighter fare" part of the menu. The portion was large, and the mussels were plump and meaty, but the cooking broth was not particularly tasty. The cassoulet featured a generous portion of nicely cooked duck, beans, bacon, and a sausage that was heavy on the anise. All in all it was a nice meal but not the best we've had at Bistro Jeanty.
Thanksgiving evening in a cold rain storm and we were seated “outdoors”on their drafty cold side porch. Heaters were very insufficient. Thundering rain on plastic roof. NOT festive. We were told, only now, that reservations for indoors must be made at the time of reservation. This was not mentioned until that moment! No options. Service was perfunctory. Not the special night we had hoped for! Food OK but we regretted being there.
This was my second visit to Bistro Jeanty. We came from Seattle only for the great French food they serve and it was worth the trip.
Came for Thanksgiving meal this year and it was not up to our past experiences, unfortunately. Our server was wonderful, both in demeanor and service. The
We had a wonderful holiday meal at Bistro Jeanty. The wait staff were attentive and we enjoyed the holiday plats du jour.
Excellent food and excellent service
Excellent service. Awesome tomato soup. Fantastic beef tartare.
The service was excellent and the food very good. Sat on the covered patio area which was a little dark. Would have preferred inside. Everyone enjoyed the meal. Appreciated that you could get wine by the bottle. 1/2 bottle or glass with a good selection.
