Freshest & Flavorful...from Scratch
This new place has the freshest food and a interesting menus. Tucked in the corner on top of East Main St. I have dined there a couple of times, and the food is fresh and cooked to perfection, with presentation. Seafood entrees are refreshing. Be sure to try salmon or shrimp for dinner, and mussels as a starter. Wonderful wines for $6-8, that you won't find elsewhere. Very welcoming and friendly. The service is paced and can be slower as the tables fill up. Amazing nearby place to have in our area.

Food here is Fantastic! Pleasant surprise for the area. Something you would expect to find in the City...makes sense, since the chef is from New York. Dining room decorated with white light and vines, and a beautiful granite bar.
Everything we ordered burst with freshness and flavor. Our appetizers arrived quickly, and our entrees took a little longer since the chef prepares all of the dishes to order himself, and the seats filled up around us. Service was friendly and attentive. We relaxed with our European wines, which were a steal..$5 for French wine! Dessert is a must here, handmade chocolate mousse and creme brulee. Coming for brunch on Sunday, and will back for dinner next week.

Hidden Gem on Route 202
Informed through a magazine article, which described Le Bistro as a "Diamond in the rough". Good characterization based on the all of the heat and serve places around town, and the physical setting of this particular restaurant. When you enter, it is like stepping inside one in New York City. Very warm and welcoming with the vines, white lights and pictures. Have dined few times and keep coming back for more, sometimes its bustling and others quiet. Many of our friends now frequent here too. Food is exceptional, with flavor and very fresh. So pleasing that we order to take out during weeknights,when we do not have a sitter. They also offer Sunday Brunch which is pleasant and unique.

Lots of chatter in the area about this great little find, and nice reviews too. We were very pleased with the menu, some classic dishes with the freshest ingredients, extensive preparation, and nice presentation. The dining room is adorable and service very friendly. Wines are a must and a great value. Dined here for date nite, and will be back again and again.

went with a couple to try the restaurant. It's small but did not have the feel of being crowded. Nice atmosphere. Good menu and our waitress was very helpful. The young lady must have been nervous....she kept forgetting items we needed to eat our dinner with.
It was a pleasure to dine on tasty food....the signature dish of gulf shrimp was good(I snagged one from my husband). The salmon was equally delicious. Loved the French onion soup...will go back and get take out. And the mini-dessert of chocolate mousse and creme' brulee was delicious too. It was a pleasure to talk with the chef after our meal, and he described how he cooks his dishes. Nice touch. Meeting Mr. and Mrs. Avila was a pleasure. I wish them well.

We were in the area and had heard about this cute little restaurant nearby. Quite impressed by the high quality ingredients and the love the Chef puts into each menu item we ordered, The service was good a paced nicely for us to enjoy our dinner and each others company. The wines also remarkable. We tasted a few different ones to explore the listing, and we were impressed as well, especially at the low pricing for the high quality. We also ready have plans to dine here again next week with some friends.
