We live less than 15 miles
We live less than 15 miles from this restaurant and never knew it was there until buying a Groupon for it. SO glad we found it! Would have never known it was there; in downtown Sevierville and from the outside just looks like a hole in the wall. But quite different when you walk in! Service was good, food excellent and nice ambiance. We will definitely go back!

We just happened to find it
We just happened to find it as we searched through "Around Me" and "Open Table". Excellent place. Good menu and really nice people. It is only a couple miles from the action but worth it. Best place I ate while in the Smokies.

Creative Food, Amazing Goat Cheese
We had a Groupon, and the neighborhood was underwhelming, but once we went inside we were really impressed. We had the fried goat cheese with tomato jam, and we devoured every bite. I ordered the lamb, which was perfectly cooked and served with herbed couscous and a zucchini/squash mix. I normally am not a fan of couscous, but maybe I just haven't ever had it made correctly, because this couscous was light and fluffy. My husband had the tuna, and he said it was the most creatively prepared tuna he'd ever had. It was served on sun-dried tomato chips with guacamole. He said it was decent, if over-salted. We had cheesecake as well, and it was creamy and good, if a little bit too sweet. Both of us were surprised at the quality of the food.

At first the service was not as expected due to lack of staff but the foods and service made up for the small negatives. Great place for couples. Highly recommended.

A Hidden Sevierville Gem!
I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough! My husband and I went there for their unlimited Sunday brunch to celebrate our anniversary. The brunch is an amazing deal- all you care to eat for just $12. There is a wide variety of options, from savory to sweet, from unique dishes to the more traditional bacon and eggs. Even better, it is all made fresh when you order- you simply select from a list of options, so there is no concern about food that has been sitting out on a buffet table for an hour. You can't make any substitutions or changes, but there are enough options that everyone should be able to find something they like. The food was prepared excellently and the staff was very attentive and amiable. The fruit crepe is to die for!

On a Smoky Mt. get-away to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and found Bistro 109 via a Google search. Reviews looked good and it was way cheaper than the private dinner chef we were also considering. The atmosphere was wonderful and the food was absolutely delicious. We shared the following dishes (vegetarian): strawberry-blueberry spinach salad, veggie wrap, and sun-dried pesto (minus the bacon). For dessert, we had a dessert crepe and death by chocolate cake. Everything was nicely presented and the meal was delightful. Thanks to Bistro 109 for helping make our anniversary special!

Wonderful Dining Experience
True gem of a restaurant in downtown Sevierville. Had a wonderful meal and a fantastic server (Zach), would recommend highly. Read great reviews and so glad we tried it, wonderful atmosphere and huge menu. A notch above all the others in the Gatlinburg area, will definitely go back when visiting.

Our lunch at Bistro 109 was a pleasant experience. We were lucky to have a polished waiter named Zach, to take care of our needs. Our food was top quality and the atmosphere was intimate. We hardly knew that there were other diners in the room. We will return anytime we are in the area. This is a hidden treasure for Seveirville, TN.

Truly an outstanding little bistro! Not what you'd expect to find in Sevier County, this close to Gatlinburg and Dollywood. High class, and great food! The manager and bartender, Zach, makes you very welcome. We will defintiely return!

A memorable night
My husband and I celebrated our 50th anniversary at Bistro 109. I selected it because it had great reviews on Urban Spoon and
I did not want to go to a chain restaurant. It was everything I wanted in a romantic place to dine. Everything about it was great and made for good memories of our special night.

The ambience with the live piano player combined with the wonderful menu and wine list made this a memorable meal. When traveling through this area, we will definitely make sure we dine here again. We had no idea when we booked the reservation that is was "Surprise Saturday"....$5 glasses of wine....with the surprise being what brand/type it was. We ended up getting $11-15 glasses of wine for $5 each, and they were all wonderful. Such an unexpected treat.

Nice Neighborhood Gem
Excellent atmosphere. Food was very good. We missed the piano player this night, but the background music was jazz and not too loud - just right. The wait staff were very accommodating and friendly! We would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and family.

Great Restaurant Off the Parkway
We were pleased to find a restaurant off the main Parkway. It's only a few minutes away from the craziness of the touristy area & worth the short drive. We were really surprised at how few patrons there were on a Sat nite given the choices of food and reasonable prices. We actually returned again 2 nights later. The fried green tomatoes were outstanding. The entrees were good, and I like that there were small plate options in case you fill up on apps. The only problem is that the kitchen cannot get the timing right. On both visits, our entrees arrived when we had hardly started the appetizers. The wait staff did not seem to realize that they should hold the entrees in the kitchen until we were ready, so we had to specifically request that.

A True Gem
We celebrated our 32nd anniversary with dinner at Bistro 109. It was a delightful evening; not only for the delicious food but also the wonderful conversation with had with the owner and our waiter. We LOVED their option of having smaller portions - it leaves more room to try an appetizer or treat yourself to dessert!

away from tourist crowds
Takes reservations, above average food for area, very nice live piano music. Wait staff attentive but not stellar; just typical lack of sophistication & palate for area. Our party of four adults had an enjoyable evening with food and ambiance above average for this tourist-thick valley. Caesar salad is not at all traditional style, but instead made with mixed greens; still tasty & light.
Not recommended for kids. We visited in mid-October, the leaves were changing, and traffic & restaurants in general were still packed.
