Fume Bistro is a locals neighborhood restaurant, nestled north of downtown Napa, off of HWY 29. We are an American bistro with French, Italian and Mediterranean influences. We like to call our food simple, honest and seasonally correct. To accompany the food, we offer an eclectic wine list which is primarily, but not limited to California wines. Comfortable, friendly service. Attention to detail. Terrific food in a great atmosphere. Come on in, let's eat!

Please note that our covered, heated terrace is open all year and super 'dog friendly' during lunch and brunch hours - during dinner in the colder months we enclose the terrace and it's considered part of the dining room. Please let us know if you have your furry family with you and we will do our best to accommodate. Thank you for your understanding.

Pizza was soggy and no texture. Service was not good as we were served cold soup and never had water refilled. Flies and were going to sit us in the sun. Wont be back

We're locals...and we love to support local restaurants and local owners. This place had to fight the good fight through California's extended shut downs....and they've come out stronger than ever. Great food....great wines....great value...wonderful service....

If you live in the Napa Valley, go. If you are there visiting....Go.

Visiting Napa with some girlfriends and had a hard time finding a place that would take brunch reservations. Knew nothing about Fume, but they were one of the few taking brunch resis in the area, so was excited to find an opening on Memorial Day Weekend! Food was really very good. All of us enjoyed our breakfast selections (omlettes, egg scramble) including the blood orange mimosas and peach bellini. Waitress was very polite and attentive - food and drinks came out very promptly. Ambience wasn’t that special on the inside. It was perfectly clean and comfortable - nothing bad, just nothing out of the ordinary. They also had a very nice outdoor patio that I’ll request next time I make a resi. Will definitely come back next time I visit Napa!

We sat outside for dinner on a Saturday over memorial weekend and wasn’t nearly as packed as I thought it’d be, which was great. The food was fantastic! I had the special (halibut) and it was delicious! I’m not even a huge fish fan but man was it good! Excellent service too! Not a single complaint.

So nice to see Fume back to the old standards. We had some delicious salads and a whole loaf of French bread for lunch on the enclosed patio. It was delightful. Service was good and they passed my personal standard of not clearing away dishes until all diners were finished eating. Nice job!

As always, dinner was fabulous and service was great. However, we were outside and I had the blinding sun in my eyes and I could not move my chair to get away from it. We were seated at a 2 top table right at the stairs going out to the patio. The seat facing North gets HORRIBLE blinding sun. Could not move left to face East because I would be too close to the next table and could not move chair right facing West because of the stairs. Luckily we were almost done with our meal. Again, food and service were great!

Seated quickly, helpful server, appetizers were good. Steak, mashed potatoes and pasta were all good, pork chop was a not as tender as expected. Over all very good and would try again.

I enjoyed the Mid Day Menu.
Started off with a glass of Pessimist to accompany the calamari appetizer. Polenta crusted made the dish tasty. My burger with bacon and cheddar cooked just right. The side of Garden salad was a hefty portion.
Our server was speedy and accommodating.
Thank you.

First time to Fume and we were disappointed in the food. I had the special Halibut dish which was over cooked and smothered in olives, the risotto was clumpy, cold and flavorless. My husband had a steak ordered rare and it was raw. Our table was a booth by the kitchen, had to be the worst table in the house! Not a very nice place to sit and look at the disorganized service area. The service was outstanding. Overall a disappointing meal.

We were very disappointed in the overall service. It was very slow, from the time we sat down until we left. It appeared they were very short in the overall help. Hopefully it will improve with time.

Fume Bistro graciously combined our reservations last minute to accommodate our Birthday party that included two dogs. The service was pleasant and attentive. Our food was delicious and prepared as described. Prices were competitive with like venues. There were five in our party. We would all return and would recommend this restaurant to others.
