“Good food in good portions”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

We were starved, having only nibbled snacks while wine-tasting, when we arrived and were so happy to see the portions at Bistro Jeanty weren't the typical itty-bitty-but-we'll-charge-you-a-small-fortune French portions!

We started with the Creme de Tomate en Croute (tomato soup in puff pastry which was creamy and quite delicious) and Steak Tartar (which was well-seasoned and tender [ie. pretty vein-free]). Then we progressed to the Daube de Boeuf (beef stew) and Boeuf Bourguignon (braised short ribs) which were both cooked to perfection with exactly the right amount of spices. The entrees also came with a healthy amount of vegetables which is great for a balanced meal.

Lastly, remember we were starved, we ordered the Epaule de Porc (pork shoulder). Again it was a nice-sized portion (we had leftovers) and the meat was very very tender. The brussel sprouts and butternut squash snuggled under the meat had absorbed the juices and were yummy as well.

Didn't order dessert, so can't comment on those, as our tummies were full and we had leftovers in hand!

“Our favourite Yountville Restaurant”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Excellent examples of proper french country coking with excellent staff and wine on offer.

Lovely patio outside, ask for a table out there, but beware - everyone seems to bring their dogs.

“Lovely for Lunch”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

If ever you wondered what it would be like to have lunch at a French bistro, this place would have to be what you imagined. From a wall of red roses and an old bicycle out front, to the vintage decorations on the back patio, surely this must be what it's like! The food is wonderful, the staff is pleasant and attentive but not hovering, and the outside seating area, where you are protected from direct sun and surrounded by climbing yellow roses, is delightful. You can almost feel your blood pressure going down! I would definitely return, and I have already recommended it to friends planning a trip.

“A Pleasant Evening”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

It's a lovely place; interesting decor, different places to dine (patio, bar area, and a quiet back room) and very comfortable. The staff was pleasant and efficient. The food was very good with a nice presentation and, of course, a good wine list. I would certainy go there again.

“Heavy but good.”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

If you have a craving for food before the healthy eating days this is the place. The dishes that we have eaten are well let's have more then enough butter and creams in them. Rich food for the rich.
So please do your cholesterol test first so you don't have the guilt afterwords. I have to admit its been some time since we have gone but it sure did taste good.
