The food and service at Napa Valley Bistro could not have been better! We were a party of six for lunch and we had an amazing experience. We all ordered something different and we all left the restaurant saying that that was one of the best meals we had the entire time we were in Napa. I highly recommend!!

We were looking for a nice restaurant for lunch and the reviews had looked good. There were three other tables being served and the server was very nice. She was also taking care of the bar area. We ordered the empanadas and day were good but needed some seasoning. We also ordered the Wild Mexican Shrimp. The shrimp were cooked well but totally overpowered by the sauce, tasted like a Tapatio hot sauce. Finally the fish and chips, It took over a half hour and the server was very apologetic that the cook apparently lost our order, funny it was put in with all the other items. And the fish and chips had a hard layered breading causing you to smash the fish when slicing it.. To top it off we had a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon, it was so bad we asked for a merlot which was better. $100 for this meal.

We take great pride in all of the food that we serve, and so very sorry to hear that what you ordered wasn't to your liking.

We wanted a simpler meal at a reasonable cost in this expensive town. Napa Bistro fit the bill. The fried chicken was cooked well, the fish with the fish and chips was fresh and not too oily. Wine list reasonable.

We enjoyed the food- fried chicken and ribs. Service was a little slow. We were seated close to another couple and could hear their entire conversation. It was a busy place for a Sunday night- glad we booked ahead on open table. We did not drink wine or have dessert but it was offered.

Really friendly and helpful staff. We struggled a bit with choosing wine and our waitor helped us seöect a great merlot. There were plenty of options for vegetarians. I had the gnocchi and my friend had the risotto, both was very well made and tasty.
