Smelt, pate de compagne, butter lettuce, muscles, smoked trout, pitcher of house red.... all wonderful.

This is my favorite restaurant in the greater SF Bay Area. We were there for lunch with reservations for 1 p.m. on Monday following Easter. Lunch for the 4 of us couldn't have been better. For me the butter lettuce and the smoked trout were highlights.

Love the place. Only thing that would have made it better is if I had given enough advance reservations request to sit on the beautiful patio.

Food was pretty tasty. Service good too. Bathrooms not so good. When my wife made the hostess aware, the response wasn't exactly "I'm on it". More like "We are really busy"...

I invited a friend to try Bistro Jeanty and she enjoyed it. Our server allowed to try the burgundy and after tasting the sample we opted for the Jordan Cabernet. Our server was knowledgeable and provided his recommendations: fried pigs feet, rabbit, ribeye steak, and Pate. This is my third time and it will always be my favorite place.

The waiter was very knowledgeable and honest sharing the details of the menu from what's in season to his favorites. It's my third time here and thus far, all dishes have always been consistent, rich and flavorable. Price is extremely reasonable with generous servings. It's one of our favorites so we always make sure to stop by on our quarterly visit to napa.

I was looking forward to this experience and was not disappointed as the bread arrived which took me back to my childhood. We then both had the soup, me the tomate en croute and my partner the onion which was fabulous. I then had Salad Lyonnaisse which was perfect. We then waited for our entrees. We had an hour and thirty minutes for lunch on our wine tour. People who followed us came and went, and unfortunately we did not ever get to have our entrees. I was very sad as I will likely never get this way again, this was a bucket list vacation for me this week.

An excellent restaurant for French provincial dining. We both loved the cassoulet, and the lamb chops. The atmosphere was also very pleasant, slightly casual, but fussy. A very nice place for a special occasion, or just if you happen to be up in the wine country for the day.

Very French restaurant in the middle of Yountville. You will think you are in Paris or Provence. Food is very good. Extremely loud background so do not plan on an intimate, romantic conversation. Service is good, but they will not let you substitute veggies for starch which is abundant on the menu accompanying the entrees. Hey, guys, it is 2019 and nobody eats carbs any more! Decent portions and fair prices for the wine country Gold Coast.

We had a lunch reservation that turned into a very late night supper due to airline troubles. Staff could not have been nicer. Our waiter Sean
was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. We went back a couple days later for the dessert that we didn’t have room for first time around.

Very accommodating to wheelchair users. Food was delicious -- portions are almost too large: if this was in my home town I'd love that, but as I was traveling it was sad to not finish plates. Creamiest quiche I've ever seen, and the Tomato Soup is pure perfection.

Overall it was a very nice experience. We were celebrating my husband's birthday. Unfortunately, you were out of the Rabbit and Foie Gras which is what my husband was looking forward to ordering. He ended up ordering the Filet Mignon which was delicious! I ordered the signature Cream of Tomato soup and Sole which were scrumptious. The service was great. The noise level was quite high.

We had a great time. Service was friendly and time waiting for order was suprisingly quick. Even though this (first) visit came about from a Christmas gift card we live close enough in Vacaville that I plan to make returns for special occasions. You have a teriffic restaurant.

I went for the Daube (Essentially pot roast ) which was superb and better than I recall when I had it last time a couple years back. My Server was the quintessential attentive but not obtrusive attendant to getting food and (in my case, for the table) water served in good time and order. Essentially never had to ask for anything. We also had Mussels, the Petrale, and Puff Pastry Tomato Soup. Americanos to close. Full.

As good as can be.

We regularly visit Bistro Jeanty for its elegantly comforting (and delicious) dishes, its charming bistro ambience and its warm, friendly service. Two of our most familiar servers, bartenders John and Sarah, always make us feel welcome and well-taken care of. We return monthly not just for the food, but for the overall feeling of contentment this restaurant serves us--each and every time. Merci!

This is our second time to visit Bistro Jeanty, and we cannot wait for our next. The location is a perfectly easy walk from any of the hotels in Yountville, or an easy drive if coming from elsewhere in the valley. Staff and service are outstanding- you never have time to realize you need something before they are already taking care of you. The food- just wow! On this visit I enjoyed the Os a Moelle (roasted marrow bones) and could have easily called the night a success with that. Perfectly roasted, with complex flavors hidden behind a very simple plating. My entree was the Filet au Poivre, and it was so rich, decadent and tender that I am probably going to be critical of any steak I have from here on. Our server provided excellent recommendations for wine pairing, and that extended into dessert where I was able to taste the "Humboldt Fog" paired with a delicious Armagnac. Oh yeah, my wife enjoyed her food as well, but I forget what it was- mine was so delicious I didn't even want to try anything else!

My husband and I were in Napa and Sonoma for a week. Had lunch at Bistro Jeanty and it was so good that we went back for dinner the next day. The tomato soup is a classic with an amazing pastry top. The mussels were my favorite, and it came with a ton. Definitely recommend sharing. We split the soup and mussels for dinner and it was plenty of food for two. At lunch we made the mistake of splitting 3 appetizers for our meal and it was way more food than we could eat! Love this place!! Feels like you're in Paris.
