This was our second visit to Bistro Jeanty. The first was about two years ago and we were looking forward to another meal there. We weren't disappointed. The Pate Campagne and house-smoked salmon were excellent appetizers. The Lamb Tongue (the same thing my wife ordered on our first visit) was an amazing dish, again. The Beef Bourguignon was the best I'd ever had (and I've tried it at quite a large number of restaurants). We didn't have any wine since we'd been tasting in the morning and were going to do some more that afternoon. There were a number of good alternatives on the wine list. We wished we'd had more time so we could devote a day to eating and drinking at this wonderful establishment.

Service just a little weak - food though was very good. The waiter, however, was knowledgeable about wine, and was very helpful selecting a good one to go with our dinner.

Fantastic food in a lively French bistro atmosphere! Far better than the meal we had at Bouchon the evening prior. The table behind us o overheard our assessment of the two experiences; and agreed, as they had the same experience two night earlier at Bouchon (average- cookie cutter experience with bland food). At Bistro Jeanty I had the opportunity to try : appetizers - asparagus terrine (very good and unique), tomato soup (good, but not special. Looks more impressive than tastes) and beef tartar (over the edge great) -- main dishes: mussels (good.. Flavorful broth), steak ribeye (good), cassoulet (yum- beans were perfect. Not over cooked and mushy as they can be at other restaurants!). Service was efficient, timely and non intrusive.

Big menu and good food. A small thing I didn't like was that there was a waiter who had the loudest voice and was slightly distracting...could hear him everywhere...could spoil an evening.

We have experienced Epernay ....& Chef Phillippe Jeanty brings that Reverence for The Good to America.
Our slow & delicious lunch transported us to the very essence of rural France...thank you Chef!
