A week before planning this little getaway trip to Napa, I decided to do some research on places I wanted to eat for dinner. As one can see, this was my choice of restaurant for dinner. I absolutely adore French food and they seem to have what I want.
Making reservation for a group of 5 people, we decided having dinner at 8pm was ideal so us ladies would have time to get ready and dolled up. Upon arriving at the restaurant, the placed was absolutely packed but of course we had reservation therefore was seated immediately.
For starter, we got:
- Escargots = drench in garlic pastis butter
- Os a Moëlle = Roasted Bone Marrow "Bordelaise". succulently delicious!
- Quenelles de Brochet = Pike dumplings with lobster sauce. They should go easy on the salt because it was too salty.
For main courses:
- Daube de Bœuf = Beef stew with mashed potatoes, buttered peas and carrots
- Cassoulet = Baked beans, duck confit, Toulouse sausage and apple smoked bacon. It was delicious and executed perfectly! Super tender duck meat!
- Filet au Poivre = Black Angus tournedos with a black pepper crust, haricots verts and a creamy mushroom sauce. The sauce was wonderful and the black angus was perfectly cooked!
- their special "lamb shank" = had it medium rare with beds of greens. Portion was decent.
Than for dessert:
- Crème Brûlée au Chocolat = high anticipated dessert that they recommended. Indeed, it was delicious.
- Their special "cannoli" = passionfruit and vanilla bean. Crunchy texture was a nice touch to this dessert along with the fresh passionfruit sorbet.
- Bread pudding = rum raisin always does the trick. The serving portion for this dessert was huge!
A meal would be incomplete without a bottle of wine but we opt for a bottle champagne instead. Everything during the dinner service was excellent. Great staff and great food. One could not asked for a better experienced at Bistro Jeanty.

Overshadowed by the French Laundry, this unassuming little French bistro is nevertheless a keeper in Yountville. Over the last decade, every time I've stopped by here, they've served up solid French bistro fare. It's the kind of place I'd meet my grandmother or aunt for dinner after a day spent toodling around the wine country. While the menu isn't adventurous or innovative, it's seasonally fresh, classic and always well-executed. Plus, reservations are not that difficult to get (although you'll still want to make them, especially for dinner).

Relaxing bistro fare served here at Jeanty's. Coming here is like being transported to France...except for the tables are more spaced out and the portions a little bigger. This is a wonderful place for brunch especially when seated outside in the shaded patio.

Excellent! Delicious food. Great service. Oysters for a buck. I'm sold! Not only are they a dollar, they are really good! Very fresh and served cold. Just how i like it! The pork shoulder is good. The bone marrow is worth the heart attack. The coq au vin is very tasty. The bread pudding is definitely a happy ending! I'd come back again and again. Just not on Saturdays because they don't have the oysters on Saturday :(

Cute little bistro. Love the patio dining area. Friendly service, awesome food. May want to steam wash your dishes/utensils because there were water marks and lint on our glasses/silverware.
Bone Marrow - to die for! Can get a little tiring after awhile becauce it's so rich so I recommend you share this appetizer.
Foie Grais - we went on the last day it was legal and it was like butter in our mouth! Sad it will no longer be available in the US.
Tomato Soup & Puff Pastry - a must order.
Beef Burgandy - delish. Very tender. However, lacked a little of the wow factor. I was happier ordering a bunch of appetizers versus the one entree.
I will see you again for your $1 oysters on Sundays!

We needed "a snack" before dinner down the street. $1 oysters to the rescue! I paired that with a vodka-based concoction: Tea Thyme - Vodka, english breakfast honey syrup, thyme & lemon juice, while my dining companion ordered a Kronenbourg.
Oysters, bread, and alcohol - undeniably, the perfect late afternoon snack.
We sat at the bar this time.
Next time, we'll probably be out in the patio.

Another French bistro in downtown Yountville, but this one is from Philippe Jeanty. Many people (including myself) find this restaurant a little more relaxed, and comfortable, than Bouchon.
Food here is great. The tomato soup in puff pastry is one of their most famous dishes.

Bistro Jeanty is a charming, authentic French bistro. Although they do have some dishes that change seasonally, Jeanty maintains a classic French flair, so their dishes are composed of their own signature dishes/specialties that stem from Parisian cuisine.
Their tomato bisque covered in puff pastry is amazing. I still can't make it this good, and I've tried their recipe.
Definitely a great way to wind down after a long day of wine tasting!

I love Bistro Jeanty for one reason. Actually, maybe two. Their pork chops and their amazing tomato bisque soup! I also recently discovered that their tartares are amazing as well. Goodness where do I even start, this place is so quaint and cute it's beyond words.
You need a reservation because this place is very small, but aside from that its a must visit because the inside is decorated like an old French house and all of the waiters are extremely cordial and social as well. They are happy to explain any part of the menu, make recommendations and jokes while at it. All of the food here, save for the duck con-fit, is delicious and well worth the money so much that I'm surprised they lost a Michelin star from 2008 to 2009 last year because the service and food are just impeccable.
Their menu changes from time to time but contains more or less the same elements. It's a place where you can dress up or dress down and either works!
