The food was fine, but the service was poor. They had us wait ~25 min past our reservation and were rude on multiple occasions.

My husband and I had a wonderful lunch date at Bistro Jeanty - so many delicious dishes to chose from. We couldn’t resist the signature tomato soup and salad Lyonnaise to start - followed by steak frites and the special pasta with lobster and a whisky cream
Sauce to dream of. The wines and service were excellent as well!
Looking forward to our next date lunch there!

Very pleasant dining experience in the outdoor covered and heated patio. We had the mussels, sole and steak frites. All were outstanding and the mussels were plentiful. Service was attentive but not intrusive.

One of the best restaurants in the Bay Area (no gray area) . . . not to mention the closest restaurant you’ll find to a stellar bistro in Paris, France.

They offer all of the classic French bistro dishes . . . combined with stellar upbeat service, great wine list and a full bar = you’ll be talking about Bistro Jeanty for many years to come !!!

No, we do not own the restaurant (LOL)

Pictured is the absolutely unreal creamy tomato soup in a flaky puff pastry . . . amazing rack of Lamb . . . and an over the top chocolate bread pudding with a scoop of cherry/chocolate chunk ice cream.

If you’re looking for a memorable meal (not just a place to eat) Bistro Jeanty will crush it out of the park.

There is a beauty and joy to the fact that some things never change. Usually derided as “Same s*&t, another day”, in a world of turmoil, tumult and unwanted and unscheduled change, it is truly wonderful to enjoy a routine luxury.

I’ve enjoyed a many a meal at Bistro Jeanty and so happy to report that the experience is as genuine, authentic and delicious as ever. Add to that a blissful sense of liberty and freedom to be dining in one of your favorite restaurants...HEAVEN.

Great staff – our waiter made a great suggestion of a “Paper Airplane” cocktail – delicious and fun to try something new. Great meal, great service, great fun. Highly recommend.

Great experience. Service was top notch. Food was delicious. Like the name of the restaurant, it has that Bistro feel. Don’t let it fool you though. We ate at 3 Michelin star restaurants during our trip and Bistro Jeanty was our favorite. We cannot wait to be back. A drink was added to our bill though (that we didn’t order).

During Covid 19 they are only servings outdoors. The first table they gave us was near the exit door. This was too cold for us. After checking our waiter was able to change our table to a warmer spot. Since the seating is very limited we were very impressed with this.

Our Waiter was outstanding! The food was delicious but the soup could have been hotter. We ordered both the tomato and the french onion and neither one was very hot. Otherwise everything was very good.

The food and service was amazing as usual.
I ordered the sole and it was divine, it came with olive oil mashed potatoes and they were so yummy. I would have liked a vegetable with the dish, like asparagus. Just felt like something was missing from my plate.

We have never been disappointed with the food at Jeanty. If you have not tried the pike dumplings you must! Everything we've had there compares well with The French Laundry but the price and ambiance of Jeanty are much friendlier.

Love this place. I've been coming for years and even having to sit outside it did not disappoint. We had dinner and we were comfortable with the outside temperature. Great recommendations from the waiter. My pepper steak was fantastic, as well as the trout salad, and apple tart.

That outdoor patio area with heaters is no different from their regular setup, except that only every other table was in use. It was comfortable and warm enough. The food and service were up to their usual high standards. Except for the mask precautions and social distancing it was quite nearly the normal dining experience we were seeking.

We dined here in the outdoor patio due to COVID restrictions. They had heaters and it was fine. We have been here before and the service was good and the food was great. We both had the filet and it was cooked perfectly. The food is heavy, but great for a cold winters night.

We love eating here and have some favorites like Le joue de bouef & les escargots. We paired our food with an excellent French Syrah, E. Guigal Côtes-du-Rhône. It was a lovely late lunch. The food never disappoints and the service is always excellent.

My wife and I really enjoyed the food and the service. We had the escargot and the duck pate for appetizers and the taste was wonderful. We also tried the mussels and it was perfectly prepared. We are definitely coming back and we are telling our friends as well.

We are fairly regular diners. Great food!!! As always! The waiter started off strong, but failed to check in even once, not at all, we gad to ask for the check. He also told the table next to us, almost immediately after reviewing the menu with us, that there was only one lobster pot pie left. Obviously we should have been told the same. Not up to the standards of good wait staff etiquette. The asst was great bringing me more tea, water etc. Thanks.

Very basic bistro food. I've ordered the steak tartare, escargot, pate, french onion soup, and rack of lamb. There just wasn't a lot of flavor in any of the things I've ordered.

Bistro Jeanty is a favorite place for my boyfriend, so it was great to have it open again. Outdoor dining is cold no matter where you are right now, but the outdoor patio has overhead heaters that are really great and the wait staff noticed I was cold so they offered to close one of the canvas curtains which helped the temperature a lot. The food was great! The wine was great! Looking forward to going back soon!
