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.

Really enjoyed our meal. We both ordered something out of our comfort zone and were impressed! My husband had the Breakfast Burrito and I had the Egg Scramble. So good and filling!

Nice environment, but my pork chop was dry and the Brussels sprouts we’re burnt like charcoal. The entrees were also overcooked. Like to give them another try though, place was cute.

Fume Bistro never disappoints, even during COVID--had a lovely Christmas lunch with family and everything was clean, masks worn by all staff, and the event was wonderful. Thank you Fume Bistro!!

Upon arriving I was given a brunch menu. When I asked the server about the lunch menu I saw online he merely shrugged his shoulders and stated it’s only the brunch menu on the weekend.

I then showed how lunch reads on the website, which does not mention that it’s only available Monday through Friday. He said he could ask the kitchen if they’d honor the lunch menu.

Rather than press, I pivoted and ordered from the brunch menu at 2pm. I place my order and asked for red pepper with my pizza. He forgets the pepper, returns, and held it as he took another table’s order. I got the red pepper flakes as my pizza was no longer hot. Great. At least my pear salad was great.

The server asked how my calamari appetizer was. I shared that it was very salty and he just shrugged his shoulders and took it away. I did not ask for it to be removed from my bill, but an acknowledgement would have been nice.

Things happen. People have bad days but here is the kicker. I asked for a box to take two slices of pizza home. The server gave me a very small box. When I expressed that it was too small he told me he’d normally fold the pizza in half. In half not over...Look, I’m a New Yorker, but that’s not how you fold a pizza.

I asked for a slightly larger box and he brought me a huge pizza pie box. This was obviously a move to be a jerk as I saw numerous people around me with medium sized boxes.

The worst part is I asked to speak to the manager who stood with his arms folded defending his rude staff member. Then he advised “I’m not even supposed to be open” which is a helluva response during a pandemic. He had no interest in seeing how lunch is listed on the website. No interest in the poor of service I received. And treated me as if I was a pest.

I won’t be back. And I don’t even think they care.

Fume Bistro never disappoints. Food and Service are always top notch. I started with the Tuscan bean soup on a cool December evening and then had my old standby. A perfectly prepared pork chop. Others in our group had the salmon and black Cod which was a nightly special. Pre dinner cocktail was on point.

Very nice outdoor setting. Food was superb. Started out with the calamari appetizer and then shared a Caesar salad. For dinner, my husband had the short rib risotto and I had the filet mignon (I switched out the mashed potatoes for the lemon risotto). Everything was delicious and we will definitely be going back on our next visit to Napa!!

I’ve been reluctant to eat out with the virus spreading but felt very comfortable in the tent. I had butternut squash soup which was delicious and the green salad with pears and nuts. My friends had burgers and fries. The food at this restaurant is consistently very good. I would definitely recommend eating there.

The food was very good! We all enjoyed it. I was a little taken aback because I asked them 2 hours prior to arrival to seat me with my brother and family. They said they couldn’t but they can sit us next to each other. We had separate waitresses. Yet they gave us one bill and automatically includes gratuity for 20 percent for all of us. It didn’t make sense.

One individual in our party would not eat or drink anything, due to the fact that a couple of the kitchen workers were not wearing face coverings. That's not respecting your customers and also not protecting your staff and clientele.

We took advantage of their outside dining on a beautiful day. The restaurant took all the Covid precautions necessary to make it comfortable for everyone. We were a party of 3 - I had the bacon blue cheese burger and my friends had the crab omelet special and the chicken BLT, we also shared an order of onion rings. All the food was very good! I had been to Fume before but my friends hadn't. They enjoyed the food and ambiance and said they would definitely come back.

The crab Benedict was a little weak on the amount of crab and it would have been better on an English muffin than the croissant. The croissant got pretty mushy from the Hollandaise.

My girlfriends and I had a lovely time! Service was excellent! The wine and food very good! 😊
The only thing I think they need to improve is their ambience. As a designer I would change the tables and chairs, more beautiful plants and table arrangements with candles, along with a fountain in the corner.
It’s a little noisy because you’re next to the hwy.
