Bistro Napa Ratings and Reviews

My wife and I celebrated Valentine's Day at Bistro Napa one day early because of work schedules. We enjoyed a romantic dinner. The restaurant is elegant, the waitstaff were very friendly and the food was excellent. I highly recommend the Bistro Cioppino! After dinner, our waiter brought us complimentary cotton candy which was unexpected and fun. We stayed in a Jacuzzi Suite at the hotel as well and thoroughly enjoyed our stay and experience.

This was the second time we have eaten at Bistro Napa, and the service was impeccable. The food was delicious and served thoughtfully. The wait staff was pleasant, and extremely attentive without being intrusive--I highly recommend everyone try Bistro Napa for their next outing.

Camel was our server he was exclent as always! I have had the filet several times in the past with lobster and always been outstanding. For whatever reason the filet was burnt on the outside, and way undercooked on the inside. The filet was not near as tender as usual. The lobster was excellent as usual. Will be back for sure just wasn't expecting the fillet to be sub-par. See you next time.

The scallops came with bacon, which was not mentioned on the menu. At all. I had another dish but the manager didn't apologize for such a big mistake. Bacon is not something that everyone eats and to have it crushed and sprinkled on a dish without notifying customers is really not good. And then to not come to the table and apologize and offer something to assuage the offense furthers the assault. The food was ok. The service was good.

The dining room is really beautiful, with a nice atmosphere. The food and wine are overpriced for the quality. Our server was really stressed. I had lamb shank and parts of it were bone dry and like chewing on pieces of jerky - which is not great for something that should have been super moist and fall off the bone. My hubby ordered the sea bass and it was not fresh. It was dry and a little mealy. Compared to some of the other restaurants in the area it is definitely over priced and caters to the tourists. We will give it another try, but right now we are luke warm on the cost per value.

I have eaten at Bistro Napa several times. It had always provided great food and service. It is the first place I think of when entertaining guest from out of town or for a special occasion. I would highly recommend Bistro Napa when looking for a nice meal. You will not be disappointed.

My husband says they have the best cioppino he has ever eaten!! Menu choices are great, as are the daily specials. Wait Staff are excellent, very concerned that you dining experience is all you expected. Their Happy Hour from 4 pm to 6pm is so wonderful, half-priced cocktails and appetizers!!

First of all, this is our "go to" place for special events, and they did not disappoint. The entire staff was so attentive and helpful, which is exactly what you want for your wife's birthday. Food and wine were perfect, and all the extra touches (complementary champagne, appetizer, cake with requisite candle and glasses of ice wine to accompany the cake) were over the top. Just the perfect place any time you want to feel special.

Dinner was an overall disappointment I was expecting more quality from the food and the service. Prime Rib was tough I ate but really should have sent it back. Wait staff were pleasant but was inattentive. We were left to ourselves without anyone checking in. When you have to ask for refills of water and soda is not what I call service. Waiter at next table was awesome wish I had him as the server.

We started with the butternut squash and pumpkin ravioli which was outstanding. I had the creamy onion soup and the sea bass which were both excellent. My husband had a Caesar salad which he said was quite good and the prime rib which he said was perhaps the best he has ever had. The cut of prime rib was exactly as he requested (rare). The bread basket they bring at the beginning has a lovely selection of breads including sourdough, multi grain, breadsticks and a wonderful guyere onion bun. The presentation of all the dishes was top notch. The atmosphere is quiet enough to actually have a conversation. The tables are plenty big and the chairs very comfortable.
If you want a bit more casual and don't mind a bit more noise, their happpy hour is outstanding. The value can't be beat and the selection of drinks and appetizers are among the best in town. This is not cheap house wine happy hour. This is 1/2 off quality wines from a nice selection. I think they also have great deals on mixed drinks as well. The appetizers are great.....try the flat bread pizzas, sliders, ravioli, Asian ribs.....you really can't go wrong.

To begin, all diners get an amuse bouche (tantalizing appetizer) and champagne. Sure puts you in a good mood! Diverse menu and all was exquisitely plated. I prefer this to Atlantis's Steakhouse, excellent quality in an elegant setting and less expensive. Happy hour specials if you are not into dinner.
Meal ends with pink spun sugar (plated cotton candy). Must see to believe!

Fabulous service and an unexpected surprise for a restaurant in a casino! Did not feel like a casino at all! Food good or great depending on what you choose, generous wine pours, and again I can't repeat enough FABULOUS attentive, but not overbearing, service. And easy to talk--and hear--each other comfortably.

We celebrated with a birthday dinner in the wine room (private) for 10 people. The service was outstanding, elegant yet cozy environment. All of our guests were impressed with their food, menu selection was excellent. We had fish, steak, lamb, chicken, and all were prepared exceptionally well. Lovely starters. The staff were very attentive but not overbearing. A special and delicious cake was prepared exactly to our specifications. It was a pleasure dealing with everyone at the Bistro Napa. Thank you for making the evening one we will fondly remember!
