About The Village Bistro

We are pleased to introduce you to the Village California Bistro and Wine Bar in Santana Row located in San Jose, California. Santana Row is an exclusive residential and shopping district with 19 restaurants, 70 shops, 3 movie theaters and 4 city blocks of living space.

We are the only independently owned and operated restaurant in Santana Row. As a California Bistro, we strive to offer the finest and freshest local ingredients in a culturally diverse menu that reflects the personality of our region. We offer produce and meats from local farms (organic when available) and feature them in our menus.

We have the most eclectic wine list in the South Bay. We offer 280 full bottles and 80-90 half-bottles, 25 wines by the glass and four wine flights. We specialize in small production wineries (2000 cases or less) from around the world, with a focus on local California wines, including many rare and hard to find items.

Our wine list has won the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence every year since 2005 & and was voted the Best Bistro Wine Menu for the Pacific West Coast Region by Sante Magazine in 2006.

We consider ourselves a neighborhood restaurant with a responsibility to the needs of our local clientele, while remaining a draw for the international customers that Santana Row attracts.

It is very comforting to be part of the Santana Row family of restaurants. We help and support each other in providing guests a diverse array of cuisines and dining experiences, making Santana Row the Bay Area's best restaurant and dining destination.
