It was the perfect spot for outside dining on a rainy afternoon. The food was amazing; my husband said it was the best French onion soup he had ever had! From start to finish, 5 stars-still a gem in Yountville

Bistro Jeanty is worth a trip in itself. The atmosphere is wonderful. The decoration pure French. The traditional French food is prepared and presented perfectly. It's a place I go for good traditional French fare in a pleasing and authentic ambiance.

waitress was distracted and overly making small talk at other tables thereby ignoring other customers needs. corkage was charged even though we spent over $100 on alcohol. I felt gouged

In times of Covid it is not easy to have a great restaurant experience and Bistro Jeanty delivers. Outside table with heaters were comfortable; food was excellent (chef came out and visited tables for feedback) ordered off the specials and a crab appetizer and pork four ways - my mouth still waters when I think about both dishes. Inventive and done perfectly. Waiter did a nice job - was just attentive enough. So if you are in wine country Bistro Jeanty definitely stop.

We’ve been here so many times now that I feel qualified to write a review. The food and service are consistently fabulous. It really is always a pleasure amd delight to come here. Today’s special was choucroute and sausage. This is a traditional dish where I grew up, at the German/Dutch boarder, so I know this dish well. It was divine here at Bistro Jeanty. Thank you!

I have been to Bistro Jeanty a few times and am usually very satisfied with my dining experience. I took my boyfriend there on Black Friday evening and while the puff pastry tomato soup was delicious, I got the gnocchi and it was absolutely pasty and disgusting. He got the ribeye which was also disappointing because of all the gristle! He actually had to spit out a few bites. Also, the steak came only with French fries, no veggies or anything. I will give this place another chance, but I would definitely recommend skipping the gnocchi and the ribeye.

Was Thanksgiving Day I opted for the ribeye steak with pome frites it was delicious. My husband had pork sausage with ham and pork belly served over a bed of sauerkraut juniper and peppercorns it was different and he enjoyed it however the juniper and peppercorns were whole which were like little pebbles you had to bite into.
I had the chocolate and vanilla creme brulee for dessert and he had the apple tart and eggnog ice cream. Both were delicious.

Although inside dining is closed at this time the outside dining was perfect since there are heaters above each table. Thanksgiving night was chilly but we didn’t need our down jackets as we were very comfortable under the heater! As usual the food was delicious and service perfect. We were spaced apart and felt safe in the well ventilated patio space.
Thank you for our special Thanksgiving dinner!

I have not been here in ages, seeing the menu I knew I had to dine again. I wish I could of sat inside, but new county rules - had to be out in the outdoor patio. They automatically cancelled it, and left a voicemail .
I wish I got a new confirmation email when I called back to schedule for outdoor. It was busy and this assures my reservation is confirmed . Amazing food- knowledgeable servers, can’t wait to go back!
