Diner Reviews
  • "Waitress terrible. Stuck in dark room in basement."

  • "I really want this place to be good. There are so few restaurants in Warrenton and it's such a cute town. The bldg is cool and the wait staff is nice but that's where the positive ends. They seem to be terminally understaffed so incredibly SLOW. The food is just so so and very expensive and I hardly ever list price as an issue at a restaurant because good food is worth paying for. Mediocre food needs middle of the road pricing however and this is not. Oh I should mention that in contrast the drinks were phenomenal! Pricing on the drinks wasn't cheap but I would happily pay it for the great cocktails. This place is in need of a rescue as it has so much promise and so little deliver."

  • "Food was very good, but service was mediocre. There are two kitchens, one specifically for pizza and one for regular dining, and they don't coordinate. Pizza arrived and our friends were finished before our appetizer even came out. The servers are either hovering over the table or no where to be found. We'd go back for lunch and the pizza, but probably not for dinner."

  • "the service was VERY slow - had to ask for water and coffee refills - fortunately the 8 year old in our party wasn't the antsy type"

  • "A fun place to start or end the VA wine trail -- there are many close by! You can also enjoy the quaint little town. Our waiter was energetic, friendly, and very efficient. We liked the different choices on the menu -- vegan also available! Our lunch was excellent and FRESH, and the downstairs pizza pub is another place to hang out with the group for awhile. Prices are very fair."

  • "The drive out to Warrenton was pleasant. Once you clear the Gainesville area the traffic eases. The town itself is quite quaint. Great for walking before or after dinner. The restaurant has a unique set up with casual rustic café on the main level and a more romantic atmosphere and bar on the lower level. The bar appeared to be a great place to drop by for a drink or two with a very friendly bar tender. We were happy that there were not a lot of children downstairs. The menu was not extensive but had something for everyone. Even casual fare like pizza. This was the first weekend for a new menu. The servings were generous and not overly priced. We plan to go back again soon."

  • "Good menu, good food, poor service. Friendly staff but poor support from bar tender and kitchen. Meals came at separate and the reason given was they came out of different kitchens."

  • "Black Bear Bistro is not extravagant but simply nice, food is good and the service is friendly! We enjoyed our dinner there and the attention we were paid!"
