"Started with Seared Goat Cheese Crottin- endive, grilled pear & hazelnut salad w/ banyuls vinaigrette, Soupe des Johnnies- onion/cider soup w/ buckwheat crêpe dentelle & gruyère cheese, and Tartar of Ahi- w/ spring onion, capers, Dijon, radish, greens & coriander crackers. Excellent. Great salad, very fresh; soup flows over the tongue like buttercream, and perfect ahi.
Steak Frites- bistro filet w/ pommes frites, arugula, crispy shallots, shallot/red wine jus & Dijon mustard butter---almost like Paris! Sautéed California Halibut- olive oil poached potatoes, braised greens, chorizo broth & fava/basil pistou was light and yet flavorful and filling. The Grilled Lamb Shoulder Steak-caramelized turnips, baby carrots w/ a roasted fig/banyuls reduction & gremolata was tender and the best I ever had.
Didn't do dessert. The red and white wines suggested by the waiter were enjoyed and for me, very good iced tea in a wine glass was perfect. Very good service also. Recommend!!"

"Did not expect much when we first walked into the restaurant. However, the service and incredible food won us over. We shared an appetizer, four entrees and four desserts and every single one was incredible. The sauces were amazing and the presentation and attention to detail were first-rate. We will definitely be back and go with another couple that we know well so we can try as much of the incredible food at Bistro 29 as possible. It is also worth mentioning that the service was great too! We also had fun watching other patrons enjoy their meals--just a great place to get great food without any pretense."

"Neighborhood gem. Our third visit. The food is delicious and beautifully plated. We've tried the scallops, cassoulet, steak frites and pork osso bucco. And several salads and mussels. . All very good and pretty. Attentive to the family onion and shallot allergies even making a separate wine reduction sauce for the steak. Smallish but good wine list - works with the food. The restaurant is good for our 20 yr old daughter and 80 yr old mom. Cozy and very nice service. I want to go back for the buckwheat crepes!"

"We always like this restaurant and have been coming for over five years. My husband likes their seafood dishes and I almost always have a crepe. But the last time I tried something new: onion soup and and the pan roasted duck confit. Both were just delicious! My husband always like the endive and warm goat cheese salad with honey. It is good! Try something a little unusual and you won't be disappointed!
Good service and nice wine list."

"We enjoyed our third visit to Bistro 29, this time with friends. The food has been quite good all three times, and the service was excellent our first and last times, extremely slow our second. Two of us had Breton crepes; two had the $29 prix fix special. The entrees for the special were excellent (pork). The crepe entrees, 1 jambon and 1 complet, were both tasty but extremely over-salty. Similarly, for the special, the sautéed greens were extremely over-salty. Otherwise, the food was good and dependable."

"Our first time to Bistro 29. We were greeted with a friendly smile even though it was 9:30 PM New Year's Eve. The menu was "a set menu" for the evening, with choices for the second and third course. The food was delicious, and beautifully presented. The portions were reasonable. We were not rushed and before the dessert course was served we were asked if we wanted to have time before it was brought. We were delighted our waitperson noticed we were enjoying our wine, each other, and not in a hurry. Bistro 29. was not cheap, but for a special occasion it was perfect."

"Bistro 29 is one of our favorites restaurants. The food is consistently excellent. Its presentation, imaginative use of ingredients, and bold flavors makes this restaurant one of the best in Sonoma County."

"Our high hopes for Bistro 29 were dashed early on in the evening by a burnt Foie Gras. We had at first mistaken the toast it was served on for the Foie Gras, until we realized that the mysterious black topping about a third of the thickness of the toast was it. The waitress took it back and apologized but to our surprise didn't offer to make up for it in any way. The main course was just okay. My wife enjoyed her Pork Tenderloin served on a bed of polenta with a garnish of apple chutney(?) My Grilled Lamb Shoulder was served in an overly reduced, thick, salty sauce. Besides three skinny baby carrots there was no apparent garnish on the plate, giving it a rather monochrome appearance. The staff were pleasant and friendly, though no one offered to pour the wine we brought for us."
