Savor contemporary cuisine inspired by Napa Valley in a sophisticated, vibrant, yet comfortable atmosphere with emphasis on seasonal, organic ingredients and simple, fresh flavors. Flown in from certified waters of the cold Pacific northwest, the finest oysters are served in the Raw Seafood Bar. Experience innovative small plates, perfect for sharing, delectable big plates and playful desserts that are deceptively delicious. The sommelier will help complement any Bistro experience with thoughtfully chosen wine from the 4,000-bottle wine cellar. Cutting-edge cocktails are infused with fresh fruit purees, boutique liquors and bitters. Gather for dinner or cocktails in a social scene that rivals the energy of the innovative cuisine.

Best hidden HH. Everything on the bar menu is half off! We ordered Kobe beef sliders and they were delicious! We both ordered their specialty cocktails and They were so good and strong as we noticed when we stood up. Order the cotton candy lemon drop but make sure you are there to watch them pour it for you!

We once again had the pleasure of dining at Bistro Napa during their Happy Hour! We always ask for Karen, and we always get wonderful and timely service, (not to mention the delightful eats at 1/2 price!) If you haven't been there, I highly recommend it for a fun get together. They offer a large variety of appetizers, a wonderful... More

Joined 6 other ladies for after work drinks and appetizers. The restaurant/bar is in the Atlantis Hotel and the first time finding it was a bit tricky, but well worth it. All drinks and appetizers are 50% off from 4 a 6 nightly. Friday night it was very busy, but the wait staff was fantastic! Helped us find two tables... More

I'm almost ashamed to admit, we have only eaten here during the daily "Social Hour" aka Happy Hour from 4pm to 6pm. A portion of the appetizer/small plate menu and the specialty drinks, including a selection of nice wines by the glass, are half price for two hours. We enjoy making a meal of 3 or four small plates and... More

We were late for our reservation, due to parking difficulties, but we're seated promptly. The back of the restaurant is the area to be in, away from the busy open kitchen. The decor is a bit over the top, but very comfortable. Service was excellent! Menu had so many delictble offerings it was hard to decide. Started with calamari to... More

good food. served cotton candy as complimentary item at the end of your dinner. Food took a bit long and steak was slightly overcooked, but overall, nice experience.

Quality and presentation were outstanding. We had Salmon and Calamari. Both done to perfection. Cakebread Sauvignon Blanc complemented the meal. Table was spacious and comfortable and noise was muted by the décor. An excellent 2 hour, unrushed dinner

Great tasty food. Good atmosphere. We all loved the Gelato :). Great tasty salads. Another big +, since it is not an all you can eat, much lesser risk of getting carried away with a food :).
