This was my second time there and it was a great experience. The food was delicious and the service was great.
I had the chicken sandwich and it was so delicious! My husband had the gnocchi- he practically liked the bowl clean. Our friend had the hamburger, he hardly spoke while eating it - I get that!! Our other friend had the salmon sandwich which she knew ahead of time she was ordering - she saw it on the internet and couldn’t not get it. We all loved our meals!the mango vinigarette was so delicious on our side salads. Would recommend, but get a reservation - lunch time on Friday was packed!
The best deal in town, everything is yummy!!
We enjoyed a very nice weekday lunch. The avocado salad with home-made mozzarella-style cheese was especially good and the service was excellent. The calamari, clam fettuccini, and tiramisu were also quite good.
Our table was outside. The weather was really nice. Down from the shops. They have gelatto.
Hands down my favorite hidden jewel in St. Helena, particularly for locals. It's atmosphere is simple, but charming and the staff treats you like family. On top of that, it consistently turns out some of the best food around and at a price that doesn't take your breath away.
Love this spot!
Great little neighborhood bistro. The food was great and the service friendly and excellent.
Great food and service. Jessica, our waitress was super! We will return. Thx!
Comprehensive menu, amazing food and service at a great value .
We celebrated New Years Eve with friends who have homes in St Helena and go regularly to the Bistro. It was great fun and festive but very noisy with a very large party. If it wasn't New Years it would have been intolerable because it was so hard to talk, but I suspect this was an unusual evening and in some ways it was fun because it was so festive. The food was good and the service wonderful, but the crab had way too much butter. Will definitely return on a quieter evening!
This is our favorite spot in Saint Helena. The service is always excellent and the food is always great!
Great place! Food was fantastic! I wasn't expecting that good, they really surprised us both. Our waitress was excellent! Wish I could remember her name. I told her the St Helena olive oil people sent me. I'm a local massage therapist and now will be sending people to you. Everything we had was excellent. Ty
Great local place in St Helena. Very friendly service and good food at very reasonable prices
Love St Helena Bistro-- food is always outstanding!
Excellent service. The lamb shank was a little too salty. Food is good.
We stopped in for lunch while wine tasting & it hit the spot. I enjoyed the chicken tostados from the small plate section & it was anything but small! So fresh & flavorful. The rest of the group had burgers & they were all delicious.
Our experience at the St. Helena Bistro was mixed. The food was very good; for openers, I think that was the freshest and best chicken tortilla soup I've ever had! The avocado salad was also delicious. The downside was the service - there pretty much was none. We were seated, placed our order and then left to fend for ourselves.
Delicious food, friendly atmosphere, excellent wait staff.
Tasty risotto !!was beautiful presentation !
No corkage for locals is a real plus for us!
Not recommend. Both the quality and quantity of Steak were bad. It was terribly overcooked. In the menu it said it's 12 oz.. but it was probably 8 oz when it was raw. There was no service. Very disappointed.
Great little restaurant in Napa Valley. LITTLE being the operative word but don't let that keep you away. I think total inside seatng might be about less than 50 and about three or four four-tops outside. We made our rezo through Open Table and we were seated immediately upon arrival. Service was friendly, quick and accurate. Our table had eggplant parmesan, avacado bacon burger, crispy chicken burger, and avacado salad, truffles and regular fries. No one left any food left on their plates! As we had been wine tasting earlier, we opted for iced tea for drinks. All of the food was very well prepared, fresh and tasty. Highly recommend. Just wish I had remembered to take pictures! Sorry!!!
The food was average. The chicken dish had over powering amount of Lemon. There were flies in sides the restaurant (urghh). The only saving grace was the service.
Very very tasty! All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Every dish I have had so far is better than the next. And not napa valley prices, very affordable. Go now!
Love this place, never fails to please the palette. Food fresh and delicious, service attentive but not overbearing and great value for price. One of our must stops when we are up in St. Helena.
Lovely people run this local establishment and go out of their way to be accommodating. We had a wonderful meal there and look forward to returning soon.
Smaller establishment with the option to dine inside or outside on the patio. Variety of casual food options which is great for lunch. We made reservations in advance for Saturday at 12:30 but could have easily just showed up without issue as the restaurant didn't get busy until 1/1:30. Found parking fairly easily on the surround side/back street behind the restaurant.
The name of this restaurant is perfect because its not really big enough to be a restaurant but a bistro. The server was very good to us. All the food was hot and tasted like it was just made. After ordering the main course it took alittle bit of time to come, but when you get it you will understand. VERY tasty!! And the gelato was very good. Don"t expect normal St. Helena high price on the bill as they have resonable prices and the quality of the food is perfect!
I am routing for this restaurant, but take it with its baggage. This is a small space and seems a struggling restaurant. The service was very good. The Napa salad excellent. The Caesar salad OK. The entrees were quite good. We were four and had a selection. Shrimp Capallini and Salmon especially good. But it has lots of hard surfaces so sound carries and while I like other people, I don't need to hear everything they say. And the touch of a TV screen in the back sort of threw me. If you want a sports bar, OK. If not, and you are in upscale Sonoma, why?
We had great table and service. You can dine inside or out. Tonight after dinner we had a surprise Tiramisu delivered from the chef's wife. yum!
Oh and of course the food is all good. No matter what you order,🌀
A great find in the Napa area that won't break the bank. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
An eclectic menu all done well. Excellent service. Nice assortment of wines.
It was great, and the food was done to perfection.
Very nice service, food came out quickly, staff was attentive.
Portion size was appropriate to quality and cost, my friend ordered fish and chips, and while she said they were good, she said the portion size was tiny compared to the cost. My husband said the chocolate shake was delicious, my salmon Cesear salad was great, my friend liked her blta and salad. We'd probably come again, and try out the appetizers.
This place is one of the best values in Napa Valley. The food is great and the staff is awesome. Jessica rocks!
Excellent food with terrific service. More than we expected from this refurbished and quaint bistro
Found this cute little place and enjoyed every minute.
Nice ambiance, but the thing that made the occasion special was the attentiveness and charm of our server. Unfortunately I didn't catch her name but she deserves kudos for her welcoming demeanor.
Saint Helena bistro is my favorite place in town. The service and the food are always excellent!
Had a late reservation at another local
Menu is Italian-ish, but has other great options as well. Has a nice patio. Service was excellent.
