We were pleasantly surprised by the no corkage fee on the first bottle of local wine. The food was delicious! The fried pickles were lightly and perfectly battered, the meat ravioli was a hearty portion and delicious, and the chicken Parmesan special came with zucchini and it was amazing. We will definitely be coming back to dine here again!

The menu is quite diverse and we had a variety of choices off of it, and we were all very happy with our choices. I had the eggplant which was yummy, and my husband had the homemade raviolis while others had Mexican dishes and two even had burgers. The burgers looked so good that my husband and I returned the next day on the way out of town for a late lunch and enjoyed two for ourselves. They were delicious. I would definitely recommend this Bistro and will return again when in the area.

Two had the lasagna special, one the chicken piccata and one the shrimp linguine. The servings are hearty and each couple split a salad and the split was the size of a full order. The prices are very reasonable for the Napa Valley and the wait staff was friendly with a personal touch. Our second visit and we will be back for sure.

Price point affordable - especially for Napa Valley - for the quality of food. Service is solid and good - sometime a slight wait especially on busy weekends, but worth it. Sitting outside is also a welcome addition since may restaurants in the Valley do not have outside sitting.

The red wine we ordered was room temperature and not chilled, the tomato bruschetta was mediocre. The gnocchi we had was good, but not great. It feels a bit like a strip center restaurant on the inside and really lacks any character or charm. The staff was very friendly and warm, and in my opinion was the best thing about this place. In my opinion there’s too many great restaurants in the area to go back to this one on a future trip.

My only hesitation in rating “excellent” is that the server told me there were no olives in the cacciatore and there were! He apologized and luckily I’m not allergic to them.

Israel was very helpful and provided us outstanding service. He made it easy for us to decide on their famous fish and chips. This plate did not disappoint and was served with perfectly crispy fries. For dessert we had the strawberry shortcake and churros with gelato. Both were delicious. In conclusion, we decided we would definitely go back for more on empty stomachs because we want to taste so many more of their menu items.

Awesome ribs and chocolate cake. Rib eye also good. Bolognese was average. Wish their outdoor chairs weren't so hard. Friendly attentive staff and one of the few Napa places priced moderately. You are next to the road but it's not too bad.

We ordered the grilled artichokes and the short rib special. The food was delicious, the Staff was attentive, the ambience was classy, and the noise level allowed for quiet conversation. We plan to return to the St. Helena Bistro during out next trip to Napa Valley.

The food is always fresh and delicious. My fav is the Chicken piccata. Other family members love the taco salad, chicken sandwich, ribeye.... well just about everything is good. The price point Is very reasonable, especially for the Napa Valley. The service is always friendly and prompt. Check this place out if you haven’t yet, and if you have ...go again!

Unfortunately, we had raved to our friends that we were with and we were somewhat disappointed to have brought them. The service, as usual, was wonderful, as are the prices. Not sure on our next visit we will be back.

The place was empty but filled during our lunch which affected the service. Waited half an hour just for some bread but the food was very good and well presented. Great value for St Helena.

We had a great watermelon/greens salad followed by empanadas, which were okay. My husband had a fish dish which he really enjoyed. Both waiters were very friendly and attentive. It was a beautiful night and we ate outside and even though it was on the street was quite nice. We would definitely go back again. Keep in mind their alcohol menu only has wine, beer and Margaritas.

There were four in our party, and we all were very pleased with the service and with what we ordered. A beautiful early dinner after an afternoon of wine-tasting. We highly recommend St. Helena Bistro.

We can always count on excellent service, delicious food and a lively atmosphere. Although it can be noisy when full, it is still worth it. It has good value - try the Shrimp Risotto when it is on the Menu and the Tiramisu is to die for.
