Fabulous as always! I usually have the chicken clay pot and the eggplant. Great wait staff! Cozy local neighborhood environment!! And my very favorite drink there is the spicy basil Bloody Mary! Delicious!

Went in for lunch with my mom. I know this is Walnut Creek, but I felt the prices were quite high for what I am used to with Vietnamese restaurants. That being said the flavors were good and the food was pretty tasty.

Way too noisy. The quality of their food has gone down hill over the past year. I ordered a scallop dish and it was very disappointing. Worst tasting scallops I've ever had. The drinks were the best part of the meal.

A charming spot for food with friends. Varied menu of tapas, salads and entrees. Ample servings and willing to omit ingredients as you choose.

I made a reservation for Vanessa’s Bistro (2) for a friend’s birthday. We were seated upstairs and served right away. We all ordered the sangria which was delicious and various tapas to share. The server was friendly, attentive and and very helpful. The food came out quickly and was spaced out well so that our small space was not overcrowded. The food was great and the birthday girl definitely enjoyed herself. Would definitely recommend for the food and service.

Food and service was excellent! The lighting was a little strange and dark. I think candles on tables would light up table nicely.

This was our first time to Vanessa's Bistro. Our server, Andrea, was excellent. The meal was served quickly and everything came out as ordered. The duck confit lettuce wraps and pulled pork tacos were great. Filet Mignon and shrimp was a particular hit. We will definitely come back to Vanessa's soon.

The food is always amazing, on this particular evening, they had taken orders from an online business which set the restaurant back, the food wasn't as good.
Nevertheless, they were great with us and accommodated us beautiful. We will be back.
