Delicious and prepared to your satisfaction

Enjoy the Bistro Napa, a restaurant that has diversity and plenty to choose from. I enjoyed the fillet-mignon, accompanied by potatoes and vegetables. The desserts are fabulous and delicious. I enjoyed the creme' brûlée.

Me and my friends had bread-pudding, strawberry short cake, brownie sundae, and coffee/tea. Service and desserts were exceptional --the pudding was hot and yummy--the portion size was huge. The only thing that bothered me a bit was that there was a musty ambient smell that one got immune to in a few minutes.

Food here was absolutely awesome. Way too much for one person to eat but very good. Service was fantastic and the wine suggestion was spot on.

This time we both had oyster shooters - I liked their pomegranate one the best. For dinner I had wonderful steak and sexy fries. My husband had the wonderful Alaskan crab in... More

4-6pm the Bistro Napa has 1/2 price appetizers and deluxe drinks... Not sure exactly what I drank but it was delicious and fruity... They should serve it with a spoon and the strawberries clog up the straw but so good... We chose a roasted artichoke hearts which was great...

I like the food here. The best deal is happy hour, where appetizers and drinks are discounted. You get a lot of bang for your buck here. The staff is usually friendly.
