My husband and I look forward to our relaxing romantic getaways to Napa Valley. We always stay in Yountville because we love the small town feel and that we can experience the art walk, enjoy the breath-taking views and we can walk to every restaurant! Walking back to your hotel after a delicious meal is always a good thing 🙂

Places To Eat in Yountville Bistro Jeanty

Bistro Jeanty

Bistro Jeanty serves classic homestyle French cuisine and the Beef Bourguignon (short ribs with roasted carrots and pearl onions) will send your taste buds straight back to France. Chef Philippe Jeanty sources seasonal local products to recreate classic French country style dishes in a relaxed and homey environment.  My husband and I dined here our second night in Yountville at the recommendation of several people. We loved every mouth-watering bite.  We stayed our meal with the in-house smoked salmon which literally melted in our mouths.  For dinner at Bistro Jeanty we both had the Beef Bourguignon.  I had mine with a side of mashed potatoes and my husband has his with a side of noodles. Both options were delicious, however the Beef Bourguignon is definitely good enough all on it’s own. For dessert we shared the Crème Brûlée au Chocolat. It was the best of two worlds – chocolate and Crème Brûlée!  While we were treated to our meal, our opinions are our own.
