A word from Bistro 112
Bistro 112 is a neighborhood French Bistro in the center of historic downtown Shepherdstown. It is a favorite of local residents and a haven for travelers passing through - who enjoy the area for its history, theater, music, biking trails, small shops and river activities. The Bistro, decorated in eclectic art, offers creative French food at affordable prices. Built in 1830, the Bistro has several dining areas: front bar, upstairs salon or outdoor patio under wisteria. We prepare local ingredients into French favorites such as steak au poivre, coquille St Jacques, roasted chicken, salad nicoise, pommes frites, savory & sweet crepes, house made soups and rich desserts.

Diner Reviews
  • "Salmon was overcooked, and potatos were undercooked. Would not recommend the pasta."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "This is our second time there. We ate upstairs and had this wonderfully appointed room all to ourselves for most of our dinner. The food was very French and very good. Service was impeccable."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Food was very good. I would call it "Frenchy" rather than French. For a small town in the mountains, it was excellent. We'd certainly go back and recommend it."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Our server was knowledgeable and energetic. We appreciated the variety of types and prices of wine. We got the fixed price steak. Although the beef was a little chewy, it was nicely cooked with a delicious sauce. I would have liked some choice about the sides ( only potatoes were offered) and about the dessert. The owner stopped by and offered my husband an after-dinner drink to celebrate his birthday. Overall, an enjoyable experience. I would definitely go back."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We had a new business client in from Europe so we were looking for the perfect restaurant for dinner. Our 1st choice happened to be closed on Tuesdays so we opted for Bistro112. We now have a new 1st choice! Bistro112's 19th century charm accentuated by terrific food, made for a memorable evening. We had 5 guests and 4 different entrees (2 salmon orders) and everyone had a great meal. It is a nice relaxing, intimate setting at a very reasonable price."

  • "Imaginative menu and beautifully executed. Lovely presentations. Maybe the best food at a small-town restaurant ever."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Friends visiting from DC suggested we try Bistro 112 for dinner. Best decision of the weekend! We live in Shepherdstown but had only been to Bistro 112 for lunch (which is also really good). Our expectations were greatly surpassed by the absolute yumminess of the food. The four of us had the soup special - potato carrot puree - savory deliciousness! We each ordered a different entree - pasta bolognaise, the chicken, duck and salmon. Each dish was perfection. We moved to Shepherdstown from DC and this restaurant rivals any of the best there. It was also very clean, our server Aaron could not have been better (he really added to the ambiance) and, to top it off, they were very nice and accommodating to our sleeping kids. Try it!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "The best steak around. There aren't too many restaurants in the area to have a nice, quiet dinner - Bistro definitely fits the bill to be able to enjoy great food and great company."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Friendly staff and great service always make Bistro 112 enjoyable. The food was well prepared and tasty. Good variety of appetizers and wine."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "We stopped in Shepherdstown, WV on a bike trip, and found Bistro 112 via Yelp. The restaurant, in an old house, was made up of several rooms on two floors, with consignment art on the walls. The menu was small, but each item was uniquely prepared. We had a great meal, and free wine via a coupon on Yelp. A great find in a small town."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The first thing that strikes one as you enter this restaurant is the warm welcome. Everyone could not have been more accommodating, from adjusting the air-conditioning, to making certain everything was ordered perfectly. The Mussels and Pomme Frites transport you to a Paris Bistro. Perfect. There is also a Bistro Meal which is Prix Fixe and provides three courses, including L'Entrecote Au Poivre. We had the special Salmon which was delicious. Our waiter was the nicest person, besides being quite competent. We ate upstairs, which is lovely, quiet and more intimate. The kitchen was very slow, however, and that might not work for everyone. Oh, do have the wine flight! Bistro 112 is a lovely dining experience in charming Shepherdstown."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "The Les moules (mussels in cream sauce) were simply amazing. Great quiet restaurant for a special meal."
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "There was nothing not to like about Bistro 112, but also nothing that made me say "I've got to come back here!" "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "As always the service was great. The sweet potatoes were delicious. The roasted potatoes were not quite done. I just love this restaurant though!"
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "We found this restaurant while visiting the area for the weekend. We read many positive reviews and decided to give it a try. What a nice surprise! We were seated at a table by the front window. Our meals were excellent and the portions were plentiful. The French cuisine was comparable to many other restaurants we have experienced in the DC metro area. We also felt that the meals were very reasonably priced. The chocolate mousse was outstanding and a perfect ending to our meal. We will definitely be back! "
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "The food was excellent, once it arrived. The proprietor seemed more interested in conversing with the restaurant patrons rather than making sure new arrivals were attended to. We waited for a very long time for initial greetings by our server, then after a table seated several minutes after us received their bread and salad, we had to ask if we could order our first drink (as well as salad and dinner)...all the while the proprietor was chit chatting with other guests. The decor is a mish-mash of anything that seemed french. Not a cohesive design theme at all. An updated design theme might also take into account the need to deaden the reflected sounds off the hard walls and floor."

  • "Nice ,cozy restaurant on the main drag. Service was excellent as was the food. Menu is somewhat limited."
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "Have only been once for a sunday brunch. Food and service were great. Relaxed atmosphere. Shepherdstown is a nice town to visit. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "We enjoyed a birthday dinner, with each of us trying something different from their fresh menu, which included great appetizers, salads, steaks, seafood, and poultry. We just loved the charming ambiance of the restaurant, and sat upstairs in a very Francophile-styled antique farmhouse space. Colorful French cloths donned the tables, and our waiter was very attentive. A lovely experience for all!"

  • "The meals were very good. The service was a bit slow, but the server was friendly, knowledgeable about the menu, and pleasant."

  • "Four of us tried this new-to-us bistro on a Saturday night. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and service. We tried pâté , salads, scallop special and Moroccan duck. All were good. We had desserts too, creme brûlée and crepes. Everything was tasty and we will return."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "First time diners and experience far exceeded expectations. Best mussels EVER, tasty cream sauce soaked up by the best bread EVER, followed by the best crispy duck entree EVER. Aaron was a delightful and knowledgable server. Wish we had had time for dessert, which we will test next time we go. Great beginning for a wonderful evening in Shepherdstown. Worth the trip, especially if followed by a terrific free concert at the Presbyterian Meeting House"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Love pre-fixe dinner on Valentines Day. Great food. Limited menu since the regular menu was not available. On a cold day, I would have preferred a soup as a starter as opposed to a salad but it was still very good. The entrecote was amazing."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Authentic mussels with pommes frites. I also recommend the duck breast. Wife had the l'entrecote au poivre just as it would be served in Paris. Cant wait to come back again to try other items on menu. Great wine selection."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "My husband and I ate at this restaurant to celebrate his birthday. We were there for brunch. The brunch menu provided an array of options, ranging from crepes and French toast, to salads and sandwiches. The food was cooked and seasoned perfectly. My husband had a beet salad and I ate French toast, a medley of roasted potatoes, and bacon. We savored every bite. The service was excellent; our server was polite and attentive. Our food arrived within a reasonable amount of time. The space itself was very cute, decorated with a French country style. It's a small restaurant, so it's very suitable for intimate occasions."

  • "This place was icing on the cake. I planned a birthday trip to Sheperdstown and booked this restaurant the night before for lunch. Our waitress was cheery and helpful and even baby sat our 6 month old for 15 minutes so my wife and I could have a little respite from holding her at the table. We chatted with the other diners and had a wonderful time. Very accommodating! The food was great (Moules et frites for my wife and a pork and carmelized onion sandweeche with pesto for me!) I would recommend this place and I will be going there again..."

  • "Great evening, charming French bistro, excellent food and the owner present to give the personal touch. Worth a visit to the charming village of Shepherdstown."

  • "Worth bringing guests to. Food always good. The owner feels it's her responsibility to make her guests feel good about their choice of her restaurant."

  • "A good meal was had by all at Bistro 112 in November. I wanted to treat my husband and two out of town guests to a memorable delicious dinner while they were in Shepherdstown on business. Having never eaten at Bistro 112 I made a reservation based on the reputation of the restaurant - Stone Soup, that had previously inhabited the building. Our waitress was very attentive. We liked the leisurely pacing between meal courses and excellent wine list. The restaurant was very conducive to conversation except for our hard of hearing friend who found it difficult to hear even with a hearing aide volume turned up. We sat next to a large group who were celebrating with gusto. Thank you for a good first impression. We will come back!"
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "This was our second visit - the first being a lunch stop while biking the C & O Canal. The crepes were excellent, so we came back for dinner on this trip to Shepherdstown, which was a very pleasant experience! Highly recommend the l'entrecote au poivre. Will definately be back!"
    Dined on 11/29/2013
  • "Was staying at Nora Robert's Inn in Boonsboro and wanted a great dinner. This place is a gem. Had scallops and they were fresh and the veggies were fresh and organic. They had an ample wine list. Wife had duck and it was divine. The waitress was very friendly and the owner came to our table to give us a menu to give to Nora. Parking might be tough during the early evening when college kids and parents look for dining. I would make a reservation on open table. Look for the lit up Eiffel Tower in the window. Much better than Bavarian Inn. I would heartily recommend it without reservation."

    Dined on 10/28/2013
  • "This tiny little spot has someone in the Kitchen who knows what they are doing! Roasted Root Vegetable Soup with a Grilled Garlic Bread, OUTstanding! I then chose to have an app for my main course, Coquilles St Jacques (scallops in Gruyere sauce w/ mushrooms) It was velvety and rich, the mushrooms were tiny buttons and the scollops were text book perfect. My husband had a tasty roasted chicken with Pomme Frites. I ordered a carafe of house wine which was just fine, brought in a pottery carafe, I almost asked if I could purchase it was so nice. Dessert was a shared Creme Brûlée that had a proper burnt sugar top over a not too sweet very creamy base. Service was friendly, overall excellent!"
    Dined on 10/26/2013
  • "A charming little bistro with a modest but fairly well-executed menu. The prix fixe three course menu was a real dining bargain. The Server, host, and owner were friendly and accommodating. Good French cafe food, American portions, and if you keep your expectations in check (this is not haute cuisine), and you will enjoy the experience in a cool little town."

  • "My wife & I spent our wedding anniversary at Bistro 112 along with our 4 and 6 year old kids. We've dined here before and it is always outstanding. They have an outside courtyard that is wonderful, Food and service is always top-notch. I've recommended them to a number of friends and colleagues and they share our enthusiasm for Bistro 112."
    Dined on 10/16/2013
  • "112 Bistro apparently draws both locals and tourists out for a day in a charming, old college town. Our waitress was knowledgeable about the food and could distinguish for me the difference between two dishes with similar ingredients, one being lighter, the other comfort food. The carafe of house wine was ample for two of us to have two smallish glasses. The salad was fresh and familiar with surprises. I don't think I had even eaten heirloom carrots! I highly recommend 112 Bistro for lunch, and I'd like to go back for dinner some time."
    Dined on 10/17/2013
  • "Having traveled to and from Shepherdstown many times over the years for business I had tried every possible dining option with my colleagues. Our hands-down favorite was always Stone Soup so I was disappointed to hear they'd closed when looking for a romantic spot to celebrate our anniversary. I found Bistro 112 since it is in the location where Stone Soup had been. The menu has changed but the quaint, romantic ambiance is the same as is the friendly service. The food was delicious - I had the ratatouille as my entree with a beat and goat cheese salad to start. The homemade bread was to die for! Dessert was the only disappointment - the apple and pear cobbler was as dry as could be and lacking in flavor. Wish we'd chosen something else."

  • "We happened upon this little town and really enjoyed our lunch at Bistro 112. My lunch was wonderful, I had the crepes. My husband had a roast beef sandwich which was ok. The ambiance is darling and a very nice menu. I will definitely return!"
    Dined on 9/27/2013
  • "Although the setting is charming and relaxed, and the service was pleasant, the food is not special. I had the savory chicken and it was overly spiced. Another diner had the salmon and it was drowned in its sauce. The pate was dry and crumbly - not a type I have ever seen. Perhaps it was meant to be that way, but it was not even very flavorful. The house white was bland. When we left, we left food on our plates. Not usual for our group."
