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 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.

I brought my mom here for her birthday dinner on our first night in Napa. From the ratings I expected a much higher quality culinary experience. The staff was lovely and things came out quick, but it definitely was not as tasty as I’d hoped it would be.

One of Napa's great restaurants. Awesome craft cocktails, the flat iron steak was perfect, BBQ ribs were some of the best I've had. Great vibe at this place too with a nice outdoor bar area. Highly recommend!

Service was good if not terribly personable. My server mentioned two specials & answered questions. After I had eaten, I overheard another server mention a different special to the table behind me. I questioned my server about this & he explained that specials change throughout the day which I found frustrating as I would've preferred the other special.
As far as noise, between the constant traffic noise (restaurant is on Hwy 29) and the athletic event nearby I found it less than relaxing. Thank bob I left before the arriving birthday party began.

Very casual local restaurant. Ordered the halibut special on lemon parsley risotto. Was one of the best meals I’ve ever had. Hope to go back when in the Napa area again.

This was our first time at Fume Bistro snd we will definitely be back. Our server Jaime was very good and attentive. My husband had the halibut special and we shared the wedge salad which we both enjoyed. We also shared the macaroni & cheese which was also delicious. I had the pork chop it was very tender it was served with Brussel sprouts and a bacon cheddar scalloped potato. I will probably try something else but I would definitely eat the same delicious meal again.

Food was as we remembered it, however was concerned about mask-less staff in rear as well as half-assed face coverage at the brick oven/salad/dessert station that faces the dining room. (sagging mask below nose and one left hanging on one ear throughout) Wait staff were always properly masked. Would feel more comfortable at this stage of the pandemic if the establishment were more respectful in following protective guidelines.

Food was really good and service was on par! Was with a Party of 4 and had a chance to taste a good bit on the menu. The portion sizes are great! Ordered the Sole and would definitely order it again. Tasted the ribs, short rib risotto, and Brussel sprouts were superb.

Food was great but service, while friendly, was quite slow. It was Sunday at peak brunch, so maybe we cut them a break.

Having never been there before, to get dressed up and taking my mother for Saturday Easter Brunch I had hoped it was a little more upscale.
Everyone inside was very casually dressed. It does have a full bar and outside eating area.
The food was very good. Mom and I had Eggs Benedict and my husband had the Chicken BLT. Our Benedicts were delicious. My husband thought the sandwich could have more flavor. Our waiter Rene was great. We all had an enjoyable time

We enjoyed our meal. My wife had the Grilled chicken sandwich and fries. My son has the cheese burger and fries. I had the smoked Willy Bird turkey sandwich and salad. The food was good, not spectacular. My only critique was we were not provided the specials, apparently there was a cheese steak type sandwich, which I love, but it as unaware of the option. Other than that, they did remember my son's birthday and brought him a brownie with gelato with a candle. Very nice and I appreciated then remembering. Will consider stopping again if I need an American style meal and will ask for the specials next time.
