We have dined at Bistro 42
We have dined at Bistro 42 a several times and have enjoyed their food each time. The fresh ingredients and clever preparation is always appreciated. Be prepared to pay higher than average prices...but the quality of the food makes up for it -- even with the pizza. Their wine selection is narrow but we have always found something interesting.

Time to chat
Good food at lunch with many choices. Server knew we were with friends from out of town so didn't hover but was appropriately attentive. Good value. Not noted elsewhere is that restaurant is in a shopping center on a corner, not free-standing, so keep looking for it; don't give up! It's well worth it.

I was very hesitant about eating here after reading the reviews. I have eaten here in the past a couple of times before they were in the current location. Before, the service wasn't great and the food was just okay. However, this time it was awesome. For 2 adults and a toddler our bill was almost $80 which is a little pricey but was worth it. This isn't an every weekend place to eat because of the price but it is okay for an every now and then place to eat.

It was a surprisingly experience.
It was a surprisingly experience. Asheboro does not have many places to choose from. We has reservations for 7:45 pm and we got there a bit earlier. They found us a table and we did not need to wait at all. Good service and good food. The ambient is romantic and appropriate for a date, although there were some groups and families. I highly recommend it!

We were traveling through
We were traveling through Asheboro on our way to the beach, and found this little gem online. It's incredibly convenient, located next to most of the main hotels, and is an excellent alternative to the various chains catering to the tourist market. Though located in a strip mall, this place has a nice upscale but casual interior and lovely patio. It is clearly a favorite of locals as we saw several friends greeting each other. The menu eschews the adventurous, but everything we had was nicely done and of good quality. Our waitress was pleasant and the service was fine, but not particularly notable. The experience was perfect for the venue and price point. We had a good appetizer, entrees, a bottle of wine and dessert for under $100.

Menu was interesting. Had
Menu was interesting. Had heard that the noise was an issue...though it was high it didn't bother me. Food presentation was excellent. Food itself was good but not outstanding. I would recommend the restaurant, and I will go back. Service was excellent.

Food was exceptional! Wonderful for celebrations! Ambience made it seem as if you were not in Asheboro but in a nice place away from town.
Unfortunately, the hostess argued with me about my reservations. She insisted it was only for 2 people when it was for 3. I came home and checked and indeed it was for 3. I didn't appreciate her arguing with me.
But things were better after we were seated. And the food was excellent.
Sincerely, Mary Rich

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.

Great for Special Occasions
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!
