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.

    Fume was nice respite from the main drag of downtown Napa. The sea bass over basil-infused jasmine rice was delicious. The baguette with sweet butter is not to be missed. We sat on the patio which was quiet and the service was excellent. Would definitely go back.

    Had the artichoke that was very tasty but not meaty. Warm bread with sweet butters was excellent. Server was very friendly. I had the filet & my buddy had a NY, his was overcooked MW instead of MR but he said it was still delicious and he ate every bite. Wish they had better wine glasses but all in all it was a really great meal & I look forward to next time.

    It’s a lovely place with terrific food. Halibut special was outstanding. Peach salad and peach cobbler I will return for more. The only issue I have is the location which doesn’t have a lot of off street parking and it’s on the byway adjacent to the freeway so it’s a bit noisy and less attractive than many other Napa restaurants. Lots of delicious food and excellent service. We will be back.

    Good was amazing- never disappoints. We sat on the patio was a beautiful night and enjoyed the weather and setting. Our waiter was very kind and polite. Unfortunately, our service was slow and we were forgotten and dinner the whole experience took about an hour and forty minutes from start to finish. We are locals and will return, hopefully with a little more efficiency.

    It’s the same old story. Really good food and a fun vibe but two servers for a restaurant that size and one bartender. It was Sunday brunch so much more staff was needed. This is a common occurrence and has been even before covid hit.

    The experience was good and the service was excellent. The food was very pricey and didn’t match the quality. Two dollars for cheese on an already highly priced burger. The fries were delicious and all entrees were tasty. Solid four stars

    The food and service are ALWAYS excellent! I've eaten here for decades in small groups, large events, ladies' lunches, just the two of us. Always, delicious and generous. This past reservation was a busy brunch and the waitress forgot to bring one drink until reminded which was too late to enjoy with the meal. The addition of barking, fighting dogs under foot does not enhance the atmosphere for me. If one is a dog lover this would be a benefit of dining at Fume; not for me. I don't enjoy screaming, crying, running loose children either. Compared to the dogs I'd take the kids.

    The only reason we are not giving five stars is because of the hostess. We expressed concern on how close the tables were to one another regarding covid and asked if we could have another table or a booth (there were many tables open). She made it clear the booth was reserved and was really set on seating us at a table for two, sandwiched between a table for 8 to the right and a table for 4 on the left. Luckily, both were still open. And even by the time we left, the tables of 4 by the window were still open - this would have been a great option for us but the hostess was adamant that the table for 2 was our only option. It really wasn't a great welcome for our first time being there. Although that whole incident did not sit well as it made us feel they didn't care about our health concerns, the food was great, the ambience was wonderful, and we really enjoyed the time (sans the seating location). Maybe the hostess didn't know any better? We are looking forward to visiting again and hopefully, have a table at the edges and not smack in the center of the room.

    I treated my sister to a birthday dinner and Fume was her choice. We had a great booth and it wasn’t packed on a Wed but it was busy. We had an excellent waiter and he was helpful with our decision of some of the entrees. I chose the Short Rib Risotto and it was really delicious & flavorful. My sister ordered the Chilean Sea Bass and she said it was cooked to perfection iron. We did split oyster Rockefeller and a wedge salad. All delicious. For dessert we chose the cheesecake which was very creamy and the chocolate, chocolate cake. With ice cream. Both were as good as they looked. I would definitely go back again. It was a great birthday dinner.

    The food was excellent! We were there for lunch and ordered the specials (chicken pesto panini and steak sandwich) and were not disappointed. The service was great, too, and they had a variety of seating options (outside under umbrellas/tarp-type covering, on a covered patio with ceiling fans and inside with air conditioning).
