  • "Such a charming, cozy, rustic locale for such gourmet food! We were able to take advantage of the restaurant week promotion....3 courses for $30. All 4 of us got different appetizers and entrees, and all thought our meals were superb. Of course we all indulged in the chocolate cake for dessert. Yum! It is"

  • "Took our elderly neighbor to dinner 9/13. There was a large party in the dining room & very noisy. We wish we'd been given a heads up about that. The service was slow (? due to how busy the restaurant was), the food was mediocre and luke warm. Not our usual experience at the Bistro."

  • "We love to take visiting friends to The Bistro...it never fails to reward us with an exceptional meal in an historic mountain setting, accompanied by friendly and careful service. On this occasion, the restaurant was hosting an event for 100 guests in the main dining room, yet our dinner with friends was intimate, quiet enough for conversation and everything was brought to the table in perfect timing."

  • "Loved the duck comfit and the mousse is always good. The pork belly slider was a little disappointing as the bun was basic grocery store and dried out. Alison did an excellent job of serving me even when I unexpectedly ordered a cocktail between courses. A lovely dinner."

  • "Having read with interest the 5280 menu of this out of the way Bistro we decided to give it atry. It was well worth the 40 minute drive. The atmosphere is very rustic but the food and service are anything but. It started with the beet salad which was excellent and particularly pleased my wife because they cut off the stems of the spinach, a step most restaurants omit. My wife said the salmon preparation was one of the best she has ever had. My smoked short ribs were fall off the bone delicious. In fact everything about the meal was exceptional. We have definitely added it to our must return list."

  • "We have been in the area for about a year and The Bistro in Marshdale is one of our favorite spots. While the food is "fine dining" the atmosphere and dress are strictly Colorado casual. This is not to say it isn't run professionally. The owners and staff are very friendly and do everything they can to be sure one has a great experience! You will not be disappointed."

  • "my wife and i try to visit the bistro at least once a month, since we enjoy their food and service. i would recomend trying a meal there."

  • "Beautiful drive to get there. Great food. Fabulous service. And it was a great thing when we moved to the porch because I thought my brains were going to be rattled loose by the jarring noise level of the main room. NOT your romantic date night spot. Maybe some plants or sound absorbing materials in the room?"

  • "We went with our friends for Restaurant week, they'd been before and recommended it, and I thought the menu looked great! To start we ordered a bottle of wine that we knew was rated 90 points, but of course they didn't have that vintage on the list anymore… turns out the one they had was 83 points and gave me heartburn. Rarely do I not finish my wine! The first course was fine, but my friend and I ordered the duck confit for dinner. What a disappointment!? Dry and tasteless, the worst both of us had ever had. His wife's roast beef was excellent, and my wife's ravioli was good also. Desert was fine. Service was good, but the noise level was so high we had a hard time carrying on a conversation across the table."

  • "We have enjoyed the Bistro at Marshdale in the past few years. The wait staff were great. The food was fantastic. We found it was noisy and sometimes hard to talk to each other, but we had a great corner table and enjoyed the experience. The chocolates for our Anniversary were wonderful. We will be back."

  • "My husband and I took his parents to The Bistro on Saturday night. We made reservations so we were provided with a nice, private table in the corner. The ambience was nice, especially with the live piano in the background. However, it was overly warm in the area we were seated, which was a little distracting, but overall, the ambience was very nice. Our service was impeccable. Our server knew the menu well, and you could tell she was passionate about the items she was describing. They had a great wine list, and the food was excellent. It's white table cloth and pretty pricey so I would recommend it for a special occasion or a date night. My husband and I live in the area so we will be back!"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "My wife and I went for our anniversary. We had a wonderful meal and great service. We had read reviews about being on the pricey side and there are a couple of items that are very expensive. Overall we found the pricing very similar to other restaurants in the area with better food than most. When I am going to pay that much for a meal I want to KNOW I will have good food and you can be assured you will have great food here."

  • "We've been here a few times for special occassions and just for fun. The food is always incredible, well presented with great service and friendly staff. On this night though, we didn't feel especially welcome. Things went great until an hour into our meal. We brought a guest from out of town because we love the restaurant so much, but halfway through our meal, they started removing chairs and tables for the following day's cleaners and we ended up being the only people and furniture in the restaurant. It killed the wonderful ambiance, we ate as quickly as we could & left. What a pity, because their desserts are awesome."

  • "The Bistro was recommended by a coworker and it was fantastic! The food was amazing! Each of us had a different dish an everyone was pleased. The drive from Highland Ranch to Evergreen was very scenic. Great little trip to take visiting friends."

  • "We had a wonderful experience. It was our 26th Anniversary and it was a romantic place to be with a wonderful view while we were dinning. The only thing we could suggest is that after two hours of sitting (which was not a problem) the chairs got a little hard on our bottoms. Other then that......great experience and we will return."

  • "My son and daughter-in-law had their rehearsal dinner here in 2001. We had returned a few times since, but not for several years. We have now moved about five miles away from The Bistro and felt it would be fun to revisit it with all our kids for my birthday. After mentioning this to neighbors, we were warned that it had changed hands and was expensive. We went anyway and couldn't have been happier. The food was great, the ambience as we remembered and the prices were not unreasonable. In fact, several of us got a 3 course fixed price meal (appetizer, entrée and dessert) for under $30.00 with several options in each category. We will certainly be going back!"
