If there were a ten star rating I would give Bistro Jeanty all ten stars. The food is out of this world delicious. The sauces are classically prepared. Wait staff are always knowledgeable and professional. It is our favorite wine country restaurant and always a special treat - the next best thing to flying to Paris or Lyon...

The rating should be 4-1/2, but that is not a choice. The restaurant is excellent and my only issue was the drink delivery timing. We ordered cocktails and an appetizer (duck and goat cheese rillettes, which was amazing), the cocktails showed up after the appetizer had long been devoured. Then the dinner wine appeared and was opened and poured before the cocktails were completed. After dinner, dessert and coffee were ordered at the same time, and again, the coffee showed up after dessert had been finished.

The food was all impeccable, but a restaurant of this quality should be a little better at delivery management.

This was the most disappointing dining experience we have had in a long time. The food was was mediocre, as was the service. The busboy spilled water all over our table and just disappeared, we had to clean it up ourselves with our napkins. We arrived 10 minutes early and could not get a table until the exact time of our reservation so had to stay outside and wait. The hostess made us feel bad we had shown up early. There are only two restrooms for a rather good sized restaurant and they are behind the hostess podium and people were crammed in waiting for one. One appetizer came first and the other two didn’t arrive for another five to seven minutes. The pork shoulder had little flavor, there were three Brussels sprouts cut in half and a slab of flavorless butternut squash. The beef bourguignon was in a small creouset pot that made it difficult to eat and it was mediocre. The French fries with the steak were limp and the bernaise sauce was thick and lumpy. We opted not to have dessert. Skip this one.

I have been coming to Bistro Jeanty since they opened and it has always been consistently wonderful. However since Phillipe has retired I have noticed the menu being downgraded and the consistency is not of his standards. Last night I had the salade lyonnaise and the beef bourginon and it was not the same at all. Both fell short in flavor. The salad had less consistency in flavor and the quality of croutons and the bourginon was a thin quality of it’s predecessor. Phillipe must come back and make sure that this incredible icon remains true to his legacy. My dining companion also remarked that the escargot was not as good as Angele (in Napa) and that the sole meunière was also not great. This is not what I have ever experienced from Jeanty and hope that he will rectify his legendary reputation.

I think the tall hostess could be nicer to people and I understand it can be a busy environment but as a third party observer, this is my take. That said, the food we had was really good and we will be coming back here.

We enjoyed Bistro Jeanty so much that we actually visited it twice during our trip to Napa. The star here is the food. It’s perfectly executed French classics and hearty portions. We tried the French onion soup, escargot, truffle deviled eggs, beef bourguignon, filet au poivre, mussels, and the chocolate creme brûlée. Every single one was amazing. No missteps. We were thoroughly impressed. The service was slow at times, but we didn’t really mind. The prices were also very reasonable for portion and quality. I highly recommend it as a must eat restaurant if you are in the Napa area.

We were thrilled today with excellent service from Darryl and exquisitely prepared dishes from the kitchen at Bistro Jeanty. We had Cassoulet, Sole Meunière, Coq au Vin, escargots, onion soup, and the pumpkin cheesecake. Each item was executed and presented perfectly with consideration for dietary needs. We look forward to coming to Bistro Jeanty again.

As a local we have eaten here several times. Being a Saturday night they were very busy. We were a party of 4 that wanted to sit indoors. The manager was very accommodating and was able to find us a table. The menu and atmosphere is very French which we enjoy.

We chose this delightful restaurant to celebrate my 67th birthday. I had the yummy butternut squash and pear soup and the tender and flavorful Entrecôte with crisp fries. My husband had the Sole over creamy mashed potatoes. The servings were generous. Our waiter was attentive and responsive but not intrusive. We were seated on the heated patio, although we had asked to be inside. A few minutes after we had water poured, the hostess offered us inside seating, which we declined. And I received a scoop of luscious vanilla bean ice cream with a candle!

Food was excellent and fairly priced. Loved the option of ordering a pitcher of house wine- very good quality!Service was great. Our only real concern was how tightly crowded it was in the restaurant proper (we sat in the tented exterior). Even though everyone wore masks, the waiting area was tightly packed with guests and servers. I felt very uncomfortable passing through the crowd when leaving. I feel more could be done to mitigate this situation. Otherwise, a very enjoyable evening!

Despite being new to your team, our server Amanda (I think that was her name) was charming and attentive. The food was excellent with a very minor exception, some of the brussel sprouts on the pork shoulder special were undercooked (though preferable to overcooked, they fell short of the mark). This was my first visit and I will absolutely be back for more!!

All the dishes from appetizers through dessert were prepared by chefs who not only source the freshest ingredients, but they love to cook for their guests. This meal felt as though it was a love letter to France.
