  • "I keep coming back to Bistro Maison because they never disappoint! Every dish is meticulously prepared and presented. Their before dinner spritzers are fun and their wine list is outstanding. The knowledge of the owner/staff is excellent in helping you choose your meal. It's my fourth time in the restaurant. Everytime that I am there, customers are celebrating birthdays and anniverseries. I went with my daughter and it was a special night."

  • "This was my second time eating here. My husband and I didn't think twice about where we wanted to eat while we were visiting the wine country. We wanted something extra special as my parents were with us and this didn't disappoint. We can't wait to eat here the next time we are in the area. The duck breast was spectacular, so moist and flavorful. The service was also great. This earns my hearty recommendation!"

  • "Took my wife away from my 3 kids for a night out at the Bistro over the holiday weekend. It was our 6th anniversary. What a treat to eat out back on their patio. The lighting, service and food were outstanding. We are blessed to have such a nice restaurant in the heart of McMinnville."

  • "This was mine and my wife's first time eating and experiencing Bistro Maison. It was our wedding anniversary and i wanted to take my wife somewhere beautiful, and classy, with good food. Somewhere special. I got to tell you, we were not disappointed! You could tell, as soon as you walked into the old house that was turned into a restaurant, the pride that was put into making that old home a beautiful bistro! The wait staff was very friendly and very helpful. Since it was our first time, we didn't know what to order. The waiters went thru the entire menu with us and then gave us tips, and recommendations on different items we were looking at ordering. Everything, and i mean everything we ordered was delicious!! It was Amazing!!!"

  • "Reminiscent of the bistros we visited in France -- rustic, fresh common local ingredients, big flavors -- yet presented with refinement and imagination. A large, thoughtful wine selection. Present but not "over present" service. A perfect evening celebrating our 35th anniversary."

  • "This was our 5th annual meal at Bistro Maison. The food is consistently top notch. There is a good mix of old standbys and several choices on the specials sheet. The wine list is extensive. We will be back on our next visit to Mcminnville."

  • "Food was delicious and beautifully presented. Relaxed environment and staff contributed to an exceptional evening. Unusual service approach in that it seemed "shared" by several people resulting in being asked the same question more than once. Not your typical situation where you are largely served by a single person with minimal help from others."
