    We live in Davis and make the trek to Bistro Jeanty two or three times a year. Today was rather a disappointment from other visits. The steak tartare was over-prepared; this dish needs to shine, and the chefs’ current recipe overpowers the delicate meat. The beef bourguignon was dry — all of the juicy goodness was absorbed by the chef’s decision to use mashed potatoes. The ‘French fries’ were puffy and not crisp, no flavor there. My son had the smelt — same as the fries, no flavor there. The trout dish was good, he said, and my wife had a salad with some goat cheese, but the cheese was bland and needed more dressing to sop it up. The creamy rice pudding had no inherent flavor — come on, some vanilla maybe? Adding sweet walnuts didn’t save this dish. The crepes Suzette shared by my son and wife were fine, but not inspired. Service was flawless as usual. Great bread. Wines were OK but expensive. Overall, we all felt Jeanty had gone down a notch, and while we will likely return, it will be when we are in the area as opposed to a special trip. A disappointing overall experience but a lovely drive with loved ones.

    This is one of my favorite dining places in the Napa Valley. The menu is classical French. The service was excellent and the ambience was quiet. I highly recommend Bistro Jeanty.

    For a $40 steak, it was terrible cut. It was tough and fatty; I was very surprised. My friends said her "muscles" were good, but her dessert was not French at all. It appeared to be shipped from an outside vendor. The room we were in was extremely noisy and it was difficult to hear one another. We did not sit close to others, it was the acoustics problem.

    We visited Bistro Jeanty with friends for the first time in several years. It was as delicious as ever. The service was spot on and we just love the atmosphere. The wine list is fantastic but it really is all about the food. The veal chop with camembert sauce was phenomenal,sweet breads, sole meuniere we're all perfectly done. Thanks to this restaurant for remaining true to form...Bravo!

    Out of several main courses , no one told us before we started reviewing menu . Server didn’t even offer drinks , I had to remind her after appetizers were ordered . Place was not crowded so unsure why service was bad. Food was so so too. Bread was stale , the rest of the dishes were very mediocre , except for Beef Bourgenon.

    We had a lovely evening at the Bistro Jeanty with delicious food and great service. Afterwards, we were stranded out front for at least 30 to 45 minutes. Our waiter told us he had called for our hotel shuttle in St. Helena. After the long wait, we called the hotel ourselves, and they had not received a call. They came immediately but were perplexed as to the miscommunication. We lost over an hour of our evening.

    Absolutely delicious. You can tell the chef knew exactly what they were doing. It was like stepping into a scene of ratatouille. So quaint and charming. The walls were so interesting to look at. I want to come back and try everything else.
