First time here. Was blown away by the atmosphere and ambiance. Service was text book perfect. Menu choices were very appealing. The pork belly and Brussels were amazing. The game platter was very interesting and quite appetizing. My draw back tonight, though, was the surf and turf. One of my top five favorite dishes of all time. Tonight? Not so much. Plating seemed very thrown together and the blue crab tasted a bit old. For desserts we had the molten cake and the creme brûlée. Washed down with an Irish coffee. All phenomenal. Very well done.
Great food. Great service - attentive but not overly so. Nice atmosphere.
We went to the bhb for our 10th anniversary planning to really splurge and try the Kobe and wagyu beef steaks. We found both items centered prominently on the menu, but when we ordered we found out both were seasonal items usually only available in the fall. We were disappointed, but figured their other steak selections would be good too. But then our steaks came out charred. The charcoal on the steak was crunchy and overwhelmed the flavor of the steak. We left feeling like we over paid for a sub par steak. We were glad we ordered the baked goat cheese appetizer. It was the highlight of our meal. Service was excellent.
We booked a reservation for Mother’s Day brunch and were very underwhelmed- especially for the price. Last year (2017) the brunch buffet was amazing! This year, the staff seemed unorganized and rushed, the buffet was SMALL, the options were weird. Overall we were really disappointed.
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary and had reservations at The Bistro. Service was excellent. We had the pork belly and Brussels sprout appetizer which was excellent. For dinner we had the prime filet mignon cooked medium. My steak was just right but unfortunately my husband’s was over cooked and charred on the outside. Overall a nice evening.
Excellent from the moment I pulled up and the aroma hit me to the moment I finished my meal...as usual
Excellent as always, my wife and I love to dine here when just out on a date. Service is amazing as are the eats!
The food and cocktails were not good , we have Been numerous times in the past and have was pleased.
We will not go back, for the $ and quality, we were very disappointed. Our server was very good, but not worth the drive or the $
Dined here for my birthday last weekend. So disappointed! We reserved a table through Open Table and checked the birthday box. Ordered two steaks and salads. The bread used to be fresh, this time it was Sister Shubert rolls. 🤢Salads were ok but sat at the table after I moved them to the side as we ate our entrees. I ordered my steak medium and it came out raw. I cut the steak in half and we asked if it could be fixed. Server brought the same steak back a couple minutes later completely burnt to a crisp. I tried to eat it but it was like pure charcoal. Server brought us our check without offering anything else. We asked if we could see a dessert menu. Husband mentioned ordering since it was my birthday. Server says, “well you should’ve said something!” Yikes. Asked for coffee. Came out luke-warm at best. Dessert came out with both melted ice cream and whipped cream. It was a disaster! I kept thinking it was going to get better. Server offered to take off the steak from our check.
Just not the service I would expect to receive as this has been a great place in the past.
Great food, great service! Perfect portion size and food options.
Service and the quality of the food was good. The noise level was a little high but that was due to another customer. Additional menu items might be a suggestion
Great experience, food was outsdanding. Wait staff was perfect.
The atmosphere at Bald Headed Bistro is understated elegance. We were there celebrating a birthday. Since all in our party were mindful of calories, we each had a simple filet, salad, additional vegetable (broccoli) and a glass of wine. Steaks were perfectly cooked and the salad was rather small but quite tasty. The broccoli was also prepared slightly more tender than al dente and was plentiful, which was a good thing since each serving was an additional $9.
WE DO HAVE ONE COMPLAINT: The general restaurant LIGHTING WAS TOO LOW. We found it difficult to see each other comfortably let alone read the menu items. We are each mature adults BUT not that old. Not sure why the restaurant had such low lighting but it made it nearly impossible to appreciate the really otherwise lovely decor. Nevertheless, we enjoyed ourselves and for a special occasion, the Bald Headed Bistro is a winner.
This was our first time to eat here. We enjoyed all the food.
The Deer tenderloin was amazing. The BHB truffles were the best.
Will be returning.
As always the atmosphere is wonderful. We were celebrating a late Valentines Day Dinner as my husband had been out of town on the actual holiday. We were presently surprised that they were still offering the Valentines specials. We started with the Wild Boar Flatbread appetizer and were blown away with the taste; simply amazing and should be a permanent fixture. The dirty martini with hand stuffed blue cheese olives were on point. We decided to indulge and each ordered the Wild Game platter; we were surprised and to be honest disappointed to discover that the majority of the food was french fries cooked in duck fat. The servings of meat were small; and while the duck frites were delicious; I do not prefer for the main course to be over served on the starch and under served the meat. I would not recommend this entree to anyone especially at that price point.
The food was delicious but the service was a bit slow.
Waiter was very good, food was excellent, enjoyed my night, will come back
The food was great and the service was good. My main complaint is that it took an hour to seat us, and we had a reservation.
A great Valentine’s dinner! Although the restaurant was very busy, our food came out quickly and was delicious!!
The gin peppercorn sauce was the perfect accompaniment to my filet.
Overall, an outstanding meal.
Steaks undercooked. Waitress chalked it up to "chef likes to cook them on the low side", which apparently makes up for it?! Everything is way overpriced, I mean, $9 for side of broccoli? If you have money to burn then sure, check it out, otherwise go elsewhere. Food is much better in "lower quality" spots.
Have been their multiple times and the food and the experience are always fantastic. Robert our waiter did a amazing job with everything. Finally, even though it was Valentine's they sat us before our reservation time when we arrived 20-30 min early.
My wife and I are accustomed to fine dining and wonderful service from dining establishments in the N. IL/SE. WI area that we are relocating from and were looking for a nice spot close to our new home in Charleston, TN. The BHB will likely see us again as our local options for such experiences are limited.
We had an excellent meal for Valentine's Day. The food was, as always, Amazing. Who does it better?
Visited many times and always wonderful food, service and atmosphere.
Service was excellent and food was great.
Food and drinks were outstanding and service was better than great.
If you want an excellent steak, cooked to perfection, then BHB is the place you should go to compare to other, less worthy steak establishments. I really like the ambiance, the service and the quality of selection I receive when I go there. I have never failed to impress anyone I have taken here for the first time.
We sat down to the best lamb chops ever! Tender, moist, tasty and portions that filled you to your eyeballs.
The food was decent, but definitely not worth the price you have to pay for it, honestly. We both had the Mtn. Spring Chicken and it honestly tasted just like a $3 rotisserie chicken from the deli, only it was $24. $10 for a glass of wine that tasted like it was probably about $15 for the bottle.
Our waiter was great. However, the Aged ribeye steak how to foul odor and tasted the same. Therefore, we could eat no more than 1/2 and will never order that again. This was our 58th anniversary which was to be a very special occasion. The only thing that made it special was the waiter and the cheesecake and coffee at the end of our meal.
Excellent service & ambiance. Great variety of menu choices. Absolutely wonderful desserts.
Great ambiance, food and decor in a surprising strip mall location! Menu offerings are wonderful, terrific high quality meat and game choices. Pork belly and Brussels sprout appetizer was fabulous! Rib eye and salmon great. A few more low-carb offerings would be good. Service was terrific, server made very interesting and special. We will be back.
The food, drinks, service, and ambience, were superb. Highly recommended!
Everything was great!!
Service just ok food not good and way too expensive for quality of food
We were hoping for a later reservation time, but had a movie to attend after so we couldn’t go too late. The service was superb. The restaurant has great ambiance. The food is delicious. We use Bald Headed Bistro for special occasions or date nights & have never been disappointed.
It was the beat steak I' have ever had. I can't wait to go back. It was an expensive meal but so worth it.
My wife and I love the Bistro. Delicious food and quiet setting.
