We had not been to the Napa area for five years or more and we were going for a special wine event near by. After checking Open Table and Tripadvisor for ideas we decided on Fume' Bistro because of the high ratings, early dinners, location and reasonable prices (at least for Napa).

We consider it our new place to go in the Napa area. They are just off Hwy 29 outside of town and easy to get to. Our meals were excellent and the service the same. Our server gave us recommendations which were on the mark, answered our questions without trying to rush, checked on things without being obtrusive and helped make for a memorable meal.

Our friends had a halibut special and we had the short rib risotto and both were melt in your mouth made to perfection. I had a bowl of gelato which was 3 scoops, each a different flavor along with coffee for a delicious end to the meal.

The atmosphere was friendly and relaxing so put it on your to do list the next time you are in the area.

We had the opportunity to stay 5 days in Napa Valley and ate here 2 nights. We had terrific meals both times and found the quality of the food, service and wine value were terrific. We had flatbread appetizers both time and enjoyed them. Both the salmon and pork chop dinners were delicious; the Cajun spiced fettucine was also very good, beware it is "Cajun" a little spicy. Although it is not in downtown Napa, it was easy to get to and the wait staff was terrific. Would definitely return if we are in this area again.

Living in Napa, you have a lot of options. Just went Sunday for Birthday brunch.
Excellent food, usually someone asks if something special. They didn't. Just a little disappointed..
Very good food

My BF and I had dinner there last night and I gotta say, it was surprisingly good! Wines by the glass aren't outrageously expensive, with a decent selection. If you like cocktails, they have a full, lively bar. The guests at the bar seemed to really be enjoying themselves! We could tell, it's a locals, neighborhood hangout with a very comfortable atmosphere. Local artists display their paintings on the walls..... very cool!
The food was really good; prepared perfectly, although not served quite as hot as I would have expected. The cuisine is not at all pretentious like so many other restaurants here in the Valley. The ingredients were of very good quality, very fresh and the food prepared in a very straightforward, non-fussy manner. I think we may have found yet another go-to place for our date nights!!

My wife and I had a terrific early dinner there in late January, we were one of the first tables and watched as every table was filled by the time we left. The meal was excellent, service was second to none, and what we really enjoy about this restaurant is that it is more of a locals place than many of the other restaurants in Napa, especially downtown on the riverfront area. We have had several meals here over the last 6 months and have yet to be disappointed with anything. If there is a blemish to mention, parking can be less than favorable when they are busy, there is a parking area in the back, but the rest of the parking is out front along the freeway fencing separating Highway 29 from Byway East.

Put this on your list of places to eat while in the Napa Valley.
