Diner Reviews
  • "Having read reviews prior to making a reservation and reading that service seemed to be their weakness, we have to agree. Our main server was great - he was efficient and knowledgeable. There was a young girl bringing things to the table who didn't seem to understand what was going on around her. She took our drink orders incorrectly (didn't write anything down). Food was ok. Atmosphere is what it is I guess. Last unit at the end of a shopping plaza ..."

  • "Incredibly mediocre service for such a unique menu & fantastic food. Server was either very distracted or working too much territory. It was abundantly clear that we weren't the only frustrated table. Easily the best food in Asheboro, hoping the service can live up to the main attraction in the future."

  • "Great intimate setting but not to intimate that you couldn't enjoy a few drinks after work at the bar."

  • "The food was very good but way overpriced. We ordered baked flounder served "with" citrus salad. What we received was two portions of warm flounder over a small portion of vegetables and rice. While the sauce had a good favor, the flounder could have been broiled for better texture and served skinless, and the salad was a joke since a good portion of it was a filler of rice. At $20/plate we expected more. In addition we waited at least 40 minutes for the food to arrive in a restaurant that was approximately 30% full on a night (valentines day) that I would have expected it to be full. The food is flavorful and is well presented, but I have to say we left with stomachs looking for more and our wallet much lighter."

  • "The food and presentation were excellent. Ironically, one of the featured after-dinner drinks was a Bailey's coffee, however, I was not able to order this as they were out of Bailey's!! And on a Saturday night, which is usually the biggest crowd night. This was concerning given the need for a small, privately owned restaurant to be able to compete with the local chains just down the street such as Chili's and Rockola where a fully stocked bar is the norm and the selection is even more extensive. Personally, I prefer the smaller, more intimate dining experience and hope Bistro 42 makes it as the food and the service were fabulous!! This is truly a hidden Asheboro gem!"

  • "Bistro 42 has a great menu with diverse choices. The wine selection & dessert menu add the perfect touch to a great dining experience. The shrimp & grits and the key lime pie is delicious."

  • "My husband made dinner reservations so that my birthday could be observed. There was a wait before seating . Having dined at Bistro 42 on several occasions, there was a feeling that everything was off a few beats . We were seated thirty minutes before bread was delivered to the table . At that time , I requested lemon for my water . I was assured it would be brought immediately . It was never received. The entree came forty-five minutes after the order was given . ( Fifteen minutes after the bread ) The food was wonderful !!!! Absolutely no complaints with the food preparation or the presentation . We will give the restaurant another try but need to let the bad memory dull a bit . This wasn't typical of other experiences there ."

  • "We love Bistro 42 and when we have a special occasion, such as my husbands birthday, we naturally think of celebrating there. The steaks were perfect, and the wait staff made him feel great. They presented him with a piece of chocolate cake (his favorite) with a fudge icing that even I loved! We don't need a special occasion to go to Bistro, but when we have one it's a great excuse!"

  • "Exceptional attentive service!! It has been awhile since I have dined here and was somewhat disappointed that the menu no longer reflected the earlier creativity in the kitchen. Missed the homemade ice cream that made this strip mall restaurant fit for desitnation dining."

  • "This was our second visit to Bistro 42. It was recommended to us by our B&B hosts during our first trip to N.C. pottery country. Both dinner experiences were very good. Food was consistently excellent and they have a very good wine list in all price ranges. This is our "go to" dinner destination when we're visiting the area."
