Bistro 29

Bistro 29 located in downtown Santa Rosa, Sonoma County. Bistro 29 is a traditional bistro specializing in “Breton” regional cuisine. The number 29 comes from the department of Finistère (end of the earth) located in the upper tip of north-west France. Known for the Galette de blé noir (traditional buckwheat crêpe) and sweet crêpes, Bretagne also uses a variety of local seafood and produce that can easily be found in and around northern California.

"We had reservations for a "special" table at 7:15. Unfortunately, the people before us decided that 2 hours was not enough time for them. Our hosts were so concerned, explained the situation, and after offering another table, sat us at their wine bar, presuming the previous diners would be done shortly. We were quite happy, sitting and chatting while the offending patrons continued to endlessly socialize After a VERY long period of time, our hosts found us another 'special' table and we had an amazing meal. Let me just say, the staff at Bistro 29 were gracious, generous, and very concerned that our special occasion dinner was a memorable and unique event. I would highly recommend this restaurant for both its' service and wonderful food!!"

"This was our second time at Bistro 29, and we were not disappointed. More importantly, we brought some "foodie" friends and they wholeheartedly approved. A plus - it was quiet enough to talk!"

"Not impressed!
French Onion soup was good. Ordered the Filet and it was not a filet, sauce was test-less.
Filet of Sole was so so and not very well presented. Prices are to high for what you get.
Tables way to close together."

"I took my mom out for her birthday. It was her first time there. She decided on the fixed 3 course meal. I myself ordered a few appetizers so that we could share and have a wide variety of dishes to try. Everything for the most part was delicious, however when out foie gras pate came out and the darker/sweeter of the two breads with it was toasted to black...the runner wanted to argue with us that is always comes that way. We asked for it done "less than normal them" when it was brought back out it looked so much better and no longer stunk like burnt toast. (We kept our eye out for others ordering the same dish and not a single other person got their bread toasted as dark as our first one). Dessert was dry and semi flavorless. But we were told that was how it was suppose to be. Overall it was a good meal with just a few hiccups. Our server was amazing and did an excellent job picking out the perfect wine for my mom as well."

"Brian, chef and owner, outdoes himself every time we dine. The filet mignon was the best we've ever had. The dessert ridiculously good. And the most amazing French onion soup this side of Paris."

"Delicious duck confit!! The mid-week prix fixe changing menu is a culinary treat and great value. The amuse bouce and following three courses change weekly. The wine pairing is also a great value, offering the perfect match for the lighter and heavier courses. A wonderful neighbor bistro that offers a ve ry affordable tasty trip to France without the airfare.."

"This was our first visit and we LOVE this place. We now know why it is so popular. The food was delicious, fresh, and creative; the service warm and caring; and the whole place reminiscent of true french Bistro. We will come back often."

"Living in Italy and France for 6 years has ruined me for French and Italian restaurants in America, and I don't expect much from restaurants in Santa Rosa in general (maybe I've just been unlucky? and for sure I am a genuine food snob). So I was pleasantly - hugely ! - surprised with my dinner at Bistro 29. We (3 of us) did not get to the crepes, so I can't comment on those except to say that I am always happy to see buckwheat crepes on a menu. Too many other good dishes on the menu so we ate: mussels in a pernod cream sauce; asparagus/green garlic soup; pork chop with brussel sprout 'salad' on top; side of caramelized brussel sprouts; salted caramel ice cream; The only thing that wasn't absolutely yummy was the coffee that we ordered with dessert (it was terrible…) and the starch under the pork chop (puree of potatoes and something…green garlic? can't recall..). I don't even LIKE salted caramel ice cream (got it for my goddaughter) and it was amazing. The service was impeccable; the atmosphere was quiet and elegant. We had such a lovely time! Oh, and the brussel sprout vinaigrette-y thing was absolutely awesome. I wish there had been 4 times as much of it on the plate….. I could have eaten a whole bowl-full."

"The title says it all. Tues thru Thurs, restaurant has $29 pre fix meal (actually, four courses with the amouse bouche (sp?)), that's a GREAT value, complete with, if you want it, and $11 flight of two matching wines. With the exception of the coq au vin, I've never seen him repeat on the pre fix--he just keeps coming out with amazing delights. Don't bring the kids, the dogs, or the teenagers--this is a quiet, classy place, and they don't serve tater-tots!"

"In many ways Bistro29 reminds one of a Parisian bistro. The focus is on good food, perfectly cooked with imaginative seasoning, and with "taste" as the issue. In other words, it's not trying too hard with trendy, modern "designer" food creations. The food at Bistro 29 is creative but also tastes good. We gave it four stars simply because the chop in one order was a bit tough---but there was nothing wrong with the taste. The ambience reminds one of France too. No blaring music or raucous noise. One enjoys the food against a background of conversations taking place throughout the somewhat intimate space. A warm and comfortable atmosphere."
