It can be disheartening for a vegetarian to scan a menu and find no veggie entrees, which made for a rough start. But our server was quick to step in and call out the chef, who came to the table, interviewed both vegetarians, and came up with a terrific option to satisfy both. Overall it was a great meal.

Great food but we waited for an hour and a half for our food to come out - this would have been fine although our waitress did not speak to us the entire time to let us know that there was a problem with the food. We attempted to waive her over but she was unreachable and it was quite frustrating. 7pm reservation, ordered food at 7:15ish, food did not arrive until 9pm. Great food but very disappointing service.

Stuffed flounder entree was outstanding. My dining artner enjpyed the lamb chops but did not find them remarkable. Salad was very fresh, good variety of ingredients. Super crumbly bleu sheese dressing. A very enjoyable dinner

This was a birthday dinner. Excellent service and menu options. We had eggplant and tomato bruschetta appetizer and lamb chops and chicken entrees. Food was delicious. A plus to dine outside on a covered porch on a rainy summer evening.

We've eaten at Across the Row Bistro several times and the food is excellent! Chef Brian is very conscientious and friendly. The service was also outstanding. This is one of the best restaurants in the Mohawk Valley region. While ours was a special occasion for eating there, you don't need a reason to have a terrific meal. Also, we sat outside and it was wonderful.

Was very disappointed. Had heard good things and we had guests in from out of town, and decided to try it. We were the ONLY diners in the dining room--- on a Friday night- and the service was beyond slow. We waited way too long to place drink orders, had to get up to get a second round, and dinners took a LONG time to come out. The food was a mix... two loved their dinners, two of us did not. It is lovely inside, and I wish we had had a better experience.

The ambiance was lovely and not too loud, though since it was only about half full I cannot say if it is true all the time. In the summer they have some outdoor seating which is nice, unfortunately it is still much too cold for that. All in all, not a cheap meal but seeing as I have not run into anything on the menu that hasn't been fantastic the value is still quite good.

We were very pleased with our meal from start to finish. The atmosphere was quaint and charming and featured local artwork available for purchase. We started with the Artichokes Grill which was the perfect light start. Between the Pork Osso Bucco, the Lobster Mac and Cheese, the Roasted Half Duck and the Tuscan stuffed Chicken we had a nice array of entrees. We were all so pleased we shared tastes and decided we must come back and sample others! It was all quite delightful!

My sister and I get together periodically over the year to catch up. We have eaten in
many different restaurants with mixed enjoyment but "Across Row Bistro" is a true
winner. The food was wonderful and the service was exceptional. We will be back. I will certainly be referring friends to this fantastic restaurant.

The food was great. The service was slow. We got the wine we ordered with dinner before we got the drinks we ordered before dinner. I do not mind taking our time when we are out to eat, but not having any drinks for a good half hour after we ordered some was a bit much for me.

We went here for our wedding anniversary and the staff did not disappoint. From the Prosecco split upon arrival to the romantic dessert to the chef coming out to congratulate us, they really went out of their way to make this a memorable experience. And the food itself was exceptional. Overall a truly wonderful event.
