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 patio is open all year and super 'dog friendly' during lunch and brunch hours - during dinner in the colder months we enclose the patio 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.

We are regulars at Fume so we feel right at home. The staff is always welcoming and friendly. The service is prompt but not overwhelming. Food is always great so we are there often and routinely include Fume on the short list when friends for family visit Napa. A+!

First time to this local's spot. We were very impressed with the quality of the food. Both of our dishes were cooked perfectly. Our waitress said she was new to Fume and training. She was excellent: very personable, attentive and had great suggestions for us about the restaurant. We will dine here again at our next visit to Napa.

Our family dinner at Fume Bistro was excellent! This has become our neighborhood go-to place. The quality of the food, the excellent customer service and ambiance is consistently the best of any other restaurant in the Napa Valley. I had the pork chop for dinner and it was very tasty and tender. It melted in my mouth! Thank you Fume for a very enjoyable evening. We will be back - soon!

Fume is always consistent with their food and service. The food is always delicious, no matter what you order! We love coming to Fume! Their staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. We are fortunate in that we live close to the restaurant, but would come here even if we didn't.

I will be a repeat customer. Excellent experience all around. However, they need to update their online menus to reflect Sat/Sun brunch rather than lunch items available.

Fume is always accommodating to menu changes for individual preferences. I've had lunches and dinners here that are always delicious. This Saturday I had a brunch. Oh My, that crab omelette was outstanding, especially with a nice flute of NV sparkling wine. It was a birthday for a friend and the staff recognized her very nicely with a birthday sundae. Very welcoming restaurant.

As a resident of Napa, I would go here for any meal in any season.

Hadn’t been to Fume for years, so thought we would try it. We really enjoyed our dinner. My husband had the rib and thought they were really good- falling off the bone. I had almond crusted petrale- delicious with just enough crunch. Nice selection of wine and beer.

When I booked on Open Table I noted that it was a birthday celebration. When we got seated we also told the hostess about the birthday celebration. And they didn’t acknowledge it it all. So why ask if there is something to celebrate if you ignore it?? Bad move. Better acknowledgment at Cheesecake Factory.

We had a lovely dinner, the food was delicious, the service was great and since we arrived a little earlier than our reservation we took advantage of the bar special and enjoyed a cocktail before dinner. Both my husband and I enjoyed our meals and I was happy that we were there on a Sunday and I enjoyed the Sunday Supper, witch was perfect for me. Definitely looking forward to another date night.
