    We had a wonderful meal at Bistro Jeanty; the duck special and the beef stew. Both were outstanding, as usual. The pumpkin cheesecake for dessert was a special treat. Loved it all!

    Excellent food and overall service. However, we were the third guests who had mayonnaise spilled all over one of our party and their response and reaction left something to be desired. Barely an apology from the staff who made the mistake (grabbing too many plates at once.)

    Our table was my only concern, it was right in the middle of the main walkway into the dining room and people were walking by us continually, I also wish you hadn't changed lardons in some dishes to smoked bacon. Not everyone likes the taste of overwhelming smoke in their dishes. We were careful not to order any dish with bacon in it as we knew it would have an overwhelming flavor of smoke. Our server was great and our food was very good. The setting is very nice and we enjoy table clothes. We are very tired of hard surfaces and the factory look.

    Dinner was marginal at best. Squash soup was watered down and flavorous. Beef Bourguignon was just okay. Profiteroles were delicious! Good service and a pleasant atmosphere.

    We have dined here every year on our California trips for the past 10+ years. This year the place seemed to be busier then in past years. Service was slow. Food delivery was extremely slow. And when food.was finally delivered, it was barely warm, having set out waiting for expiditer to deliver. While the expiditer(s) may have been slammed, our waiter should have been on top of our orders.

    We had a lovely time. The food was fabulous, just delicious! The table for two was nice and big, not like some of those dinky for two tables you can not even get more than two dinner plates on. Space is a priority. Loved it all, no wonder it is one of the "IT" places to go!

    I was very excited to celebrate our 33 year anniversary at this restaurant. The ambience was cozy and festive. The service was on par with excellent culinary protocol. There was high attention to detail on placesettings proper silverware and plate replacement almost to the point of being excessive. Their tomato bisque was amazing the puff pastry presentation and taste were born on the best I’ve had. That was definitely the highlight of my meal. Given all the attention to detail they should be serving warm bread. Cold bread was a disappointment. Being from the East Coast I was very excited to enjoy good escargot it had been years since I had any and the server was enthusiastic about them. While I can’t say they were horrible, they lacked the flavor and texture I was expecting to enjoy. They had Too little salt and they where chewy vs melt in your mouth. The steak arrived super rare versus the medium we had requested. We appreciated that they were prompt at picking it up to resolve that however they left us without the other items on the plate to nibble on while we waited. I still give them a good rating overall and I would go back for the tomato bisque.

    We had 6 for lunch and everyone thought their food was outstanding. Our server was very attentive. The noise level was more than we have experienced in the past, but it was due to the fact the room was completely full. And the value for money was very good.

    We had a delightful evening. People we met while waiting (for just a moment) highly recommended the tomato soup in puff pastry. I’m not a tomato soup fan but I ordered it and Voila, it was a true treat. The mussels were absolutely phenomenal and my husband had the special of the day soup and a duck special. We had a small pumpkin cheesecake dessert that was equally delightful. The ambiance mirrors a neighborhood French bistro! Enjoy!

    I feel like they need a little revamping. Menu. Outdoors area is very stale. Lighting in the back dining room is not good. The food is excellent although we were hoping for newer menu items and more creative dishes. Feels like they are sleeping on their laurels

    Old style French bistro, love the pate, string been salad and deviled eggs. For main had Coq Au Vin but had very little chicken in it. A small leg and half thigh. It is quite heavy and thick sauce.

    We've always loved Bistro and dine here about 5 times a year. However, yesterday was very disappointing. It took 15 minutes to het water, 20 to get bread, and about 90 minutes to have our meal served. When the main dishes were served, they were not what we had ordered. By the time we got our meals, they were salty and weren't as we had remembered. Disappointing.

    After a morning of wine tasting a late lunch at Jeanty was the perfect way to round out our day. From the minute we walked into this bustling French bistro we were transported to gay Paris! Our waitress was friendly and capable and knowledgeable of the menu. We ordered a Beaujolais and a beer. We started with the smoked trout, the steak tartare then dived into the rabbit and the croque madame. We finished off with the chocolate crème brûlée and espresso martini! The food was second to none! The service was impeccable. Can’t wait to return (next time we’ll have the tomato soup!) their signature dish.

    THE best French Bistro menu, perfectly executed, with excellent service. We had a perfect lunch - shared a warm goat cheese on blanched green bean and frisée salad, with a little pot of liver mouse, followed by mussels with frites. Add a delicious Napa Chardonnay and it simply does not get any better than that.
