Very good dinner. tomato soup was as proclaimed. Sea bass was memorable. Even though we had reservations, the guy at the front was less than hospitable. That really bothered me. Our waiter, Arturo was GREAT! Glad we went, but the front guy needs to get a new face.

After a hiatus of more than a year, we tried Bistro Jeanty again. We've been going there since they opened. Our last visit was kind of sad as the service had faltered and the food was nothing special. On a lark we tried it again on an early May Sunday evening.

They food was better and the service much better. It became uncomfortably hot in the restaurant as they were balancing a cooling evening with open doors, but had lots of diners inside. Other than that they seem to have regained some of the original style of the restaurant.

Good for them and good for you if you decide to have something other than the growing list of Italian restaurants in the valley.

We have eaten here several times in the past few years. The place never disappoints. True French experience both in the quality of the food and the ambiance. Hope to return.

Bistro Jeanty is very good if you're looking for rustic French. Some of the menu items are not usual to the American palate (kidneys, tongue, pigs feet, sweetbreads, snails). But there is plenty there even if you're not the adventurous type. It's perfect if you're hungry and you want a tasty, satisfying meal. Menu names are of course in French which means you can butcher the language, but at least there are English translations so you don't have to go so low as to grunt and point at the menu. As well the Tomato soup is to die and my personal favorite the Pigs feet are very good. I had the fried smelts and shared and they were rocking. Service was out of this world and a wonderful wine list. This is not the French Laundry but it is very good French Cuisine.
