The social hour at the bar of the Bistro Napa is from 4-6 daily. The drinks (not just house wine and beer) plus all of the appetizers are half price. The food is outstanding. It's great to share so one can try different items. Get there early because this value is NOT a secret. The restaurant also has great food,... More

Others in our group had steak and lamb and everyone was very happy with their selections. We had a birthday at our table and they brought... More

Last night at the Atlantis, the line for the buffet was probably 1 1/2 football fields long when we got there. The only restaurant with room in the lounge was the Bistro. Thank goodness! The food was superb, the service was excellent, and Chef de Cuisine, Clayton Slieff, was so much fun to talk food and life with. We are... More

My family and I went to the Napa Bistro on Thanksgiving Day, because the buffet line at the casino was too long. Thank goodness it was, because we ended up having some of the most amazing food we've ever eaten! My mom and I were planning on splitting the calamari steak, but then Chef Clay came over to our table... More

Went there on Thanksgiving since we were cooking Thanksgiving dinner the next night. For that reason we weren't going to get a Thanksgiving meal.

Each time I have friends visit they want to go back to Bistro Napa! Can't blame them because we always have a great meal. I love their short ribs and my friend always has Calamari Steak. One of the best if not the best restaurant in town...

When the food is excellent at Napa, it is the best. The menu has an impressive array of small and large plate choices. The diner does not have much trouble deciding how much food to order. If one is not very hungry, one orders the small plates. If one has a big appetite, one orders the large plates. We ordered... More

We had another stellar meal at Bistro Napa. The oysters we had were amazing. The filet mignon so good - one of the best ever. Truffles with a glass of Innskillen amazing. The complementary appetizer, very good bread sticks and bread basket, and the cotton candy served with the bill makes this one of the best restaurants to visit when... More
