Awesome time last Saturday night. Food was amazing, but we were pretty full after the appetizers. Will likely come back and split a main course. The waiter was awesome!

Great place we excellent food. The tomato soup with pasty over the top is really good. My wife had the beef which was amazing. I had the sole which was also cook perfect but was slightly over seasoned and too lemon peppery. Overall, very good place.

Authentic French food perfectly prepared. Our waiter and other waitstaff were attentive and professional. The menu has many different entree choices. I had the scallops, which was a substitution for the lobster thermidor which was out. They were perfectly seated with a lovely citrus sauce. There are so many choices for dessert as well, even a couple of specials of the day. The chocolate mousse was not the best I've had and the only disappointment. It was dry and very thick, rather than light and creamy.

Bistro Jeanty was wonderful. I loved my French 75, the tomato soup in puff pastry, the green beans, and the scalloped potatoes. My filet was a little chewy and the peppercorn crust was quite thick. Overall, though, we enjoyed the dinner.

Seated in “outdoor “ area on a cold night, with side canvas screens only as protection from the rain and cold, and inadequate heating, depending on how close to the overhead heaters you were seated. Not good enough

We had not gone to Bistro Jeanty in quite some time. Decided it was time to visit again because in the past we had good experiences. It was a disappointment! Seating in the makeshift covered patio was loud and devoid of atmosphere. Service was fast but amateurish by a sloppy female server just going through the motions. The gentleman that brought the food (in civilian clothes; manager?) had to ask who had what and then served me before serving my wife. Food was just okay. Over priced and so was the wine by the glass. They have lost a step or two. Might give them another chance in the near future. But in the meantime, there are many establishments in the valley with superior value. Too bad.

Great Valentines Day dinner at Bistro Jeanty! Even on one of the busiest nights of the year, it was perfect! Great Pates, Grilled Quail with Mushroom Risotto and Veal Chop with Morels were fantastic! Delicious Rum Raisin Bread Pudding topped it off! Nice half bottle of Pride Merlot washed it all down. Highly recommended if looking for great French lunch or dinner in Yountville!

Valentines Dinner.

We ordered Smoked Salmon with toasted bread. Very good


My salad was beet salad with feta. Good I would of liked to have seen and tasted more feta.
I ordered the Lobster Thermador. It was not what I expected. A Spiny Lobster was used for this preparation. There was very little lobster meat. Although tasty, it would have been better with a traditional lobster.

I’ve had this several times in the past and it was delicious with the proper type of lobster at a different restaurant.

My husband ate a salad lyonnaise with a poached egg and lardons. Filet steak Aunt aupoivre with black pepper and mushroom sauce.

Great (if pricey) food. Server was nice but a bit too pushy — we needed more time and he kept coming back every few minutes to ask if we were ready.

The mussels never disappoint and were especially delicious this time. Along with the fries and rosė from Provence, I was transported to the south of France on a rainy, winter evening. The rum bread pudding was sublime. Service was perfect with the waiter always being there when needed and never when not, plus remembering he had waited on me previously and welcoming me back. I can't wait to return.

The food was Disappointing.

Sole was rather tasteless. I had to salt it profusely which I would not expect to do in a French restaurant of your quality.

Portobello Bourguignon was so overloaded with pearl onions that despite eating only a few (leaving at least 10) of them, the diner had gastric distress all afternoon.

The Rice Pudding was bland and unimaginative except for the four bites that included a brandied cherry.

On the other hand the beet salad was excellent.

The waitress was knowledgeable and very competent.

If you know what real French food is I guarantee you won't be disappointed. Every dish was wonderful! I enjoyed the tastiest lemon meringue tart I have ever had. I also had the French 75 champagne cocktail - strongly suggest as well. We will definitely be going back to Bistro Jeanty in the near future!
