American
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.

I have been a regular at Fume' since they opened their doors. I have never had a bad meal or experience there. It is the first place I recommend to out of town guests. It's where I had many first dates during my single period. I have used their catering service twice, once in 2008 and, again, earlier this year. They crushed it and the price was reasonable. Other quotes were 3 and 4 times as much and I'm not convinced would have been any better. Terry is down to earth and easy to work with. I look forward to many years of continued patronage. HIGHLY recommend!

Bad night. We love this place and go a few times per year. We just happened to go on a bad night this last time- looked like the wait staff was flustered at 6pm already, and they were out of the Halibut which was the special. Our server was nice and none of the poor service had to do with him, mostly when we got seated. Bottom line, tell the wait staff not to bicker while walking customers to their seat! We dont want to hear it.

One of those hidden gems that no one tells you about in Napa!! Amazing salmon; spicy shrimp dish; and chocolate cake for dessert. We dined here twice on our trip. I highly recommend it!!

I frequently enjoy the lunch combinations featuring soup, salad, 1/2 sandwich.
The pear (and currently peach) salads are always favorites! Salmon is moist and not overcooked.

One of my friends appreciates the opportunity to bring her dog onto the covered patio - which is 1 of the reasons we dine at Fume so frequently.

Servers are always well-informed as well as personal.

Everything was great the server was phenomenal the food was phenomenal the Ambiance was nice but it did take two people two hours to get through an appetizer two glasses of wine entree and dessert which seemed a little bit long. It took almost 90 minutes to get served our food. Other than that it was a great experience and I would probably go again.

Sunday Brunch was excellent. You walk in and receive a welcome greeting from the Hostess. They had my reservation and table ready for my party right on time. Our Waitress was efficient and very nice. I ordered the Quiche special. I feel it wasn’t baked long enough. The texture was like a custard. And my friend ordered the Tri tip Hash and she really enjoyed it.
We live in the neighborhood so we are fortunate enough to walk. Really enjoyed the visit. Will return soon.

Enjoyed food in a casual setting. Parking was an issue due to limited spaces and the way other customers parked.

Had a true brunch menu which we enjoyed rather than just one or 2 selections.

We both ordered the special, which was an 8 oz Filet Mignon, which proved to be an excellent choice. The steak came with garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus. Filet arrived perfectly cooked as requested.
