DINNER WAS FINE, OUR PROBLEM WAS BEFORE DINNER WHEN THE HOSTESS TOLD US ON NEW YEARS EVE THAT WE DIDN'T HAVE A RESERVATION BECAUSE THEY STOPPED USING OPEN TABLE 3 WEEKS BEFORE...I SHOWED HER MY CONFIRMATION FROM YOU PEOPLE AND SHE WASN'T BUDGING SO I ASKED FOR THE MANAGER...AFTER 10 MINUTES HE AGREED TO SEAT US...OPEN TABLE NEEDS TO GET ITS ACT TOGETHER...THIS WAS VERY EMBARRASING TO MY WIFE AND OUR GUESTS AND I HOPE OPEN TABLE WILL DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT......
The food was prepared excellently and delicious. My husband particularly enjoyed his buffalo rib eye. My fillet was perfection. The brussel sprouts were an amazing dish, prepared with peppers and various spices. We love Bald Headed Bistro, and can visit only on special occasions due to pricing.
Cleveland’s only real upscale option. Menu is limited but includes some really tasty beef selections, along with interesting local twist on classic cocktails. Overall a quiet place for a classic romantic dinner, but plan on parting with at least $100 for dinner for you and your Sweetie.
Always wonderful food, never a disappointment. Great menu prepared especially by the chef and always on point
Never had a bad meal here. Sit in the bar area (they have tables - not just a bar) and you get to choose from two menus. Kids love the brick oven pizza. Can't go wrong with any steak options. Always great
Great experience. Thank you. Will definitely be back. This was our fourth visit
The Bistro we used to know and love is back - great meal, great service.
Great local option for all...we are frequent visitors
I took a group of friends to the Bald Headed Bistro for my husband’s birthday on Saturday night. They have a new award-winning chef who has created a wonderful menu. Everything we ordered was delicious and perfectly cooked. The ambiance is also very unique to Chattanooga/Cleveland as it’s designed to look like a log cabin inside. The chef and staff were very friendly and accommodating.
Been eating there off and on for 5 years. The menu is not what use to be. Prices seem high for what you get.
Very well executed cuisine with great flavor profiles. Nice environment to enjoy a nice date, and the service was great also!
We have been going to BHB for years. They recently changed the menu and not for the best.
Side choices are very limited. Only vegetable was charred broccoli. They wouldn’t even steam it for me. No mashed potatoes, spinach, mushrooms, etc...
No flexibility in the kitchen and what I ordered was very salty.
We were very disappointed.
The meal I shared with friends at the Bald Headed Bistro was perfect from start to finish! Everything from the appetizers all the way through dessert was delicious! The ambiance, the service, and the menu options were all just right.
We were given a gift card for Christmas and used it to take our granddaughter to dinner on her 16th birthday. We loved the atmosphere, the food was delicious and the service was great. The menu was different from the one we reviewed online. The selection was not as varied. It was a wonderful experience but quite a distance from our home, so we will probably not return. Great place, good luck!
We came here for a date night. Both received the steak entree. Our steaks and potatoes were covered with seasoning. I could not enjoy my food because I could not taste the flavor besides the seasoning. For our appetizer we had the fried octopus. This came out cold and hard. I am highly disappointed with my experience here after paying $170.
I had the filet, cooked perfectly medium, and the goat cheese appetizer. Both were delicious! Very good service. Great time for a friends 50th birthday.
On line were old menus and images and a old menu on outside window. Menu was reduced greatly and gone were some of the popular items. Selections were limited and they were out of some them. The steak was not firm, chewy, lacked flavor, and a poor quality of meat for the price. I was very disappointed in the meal.
Best meal I’ve ever had!! Our first visit of many many more.
The service was incredible. The food came out in a timely manner and was delicious. I highly recommend the Korean BBQ octopus and the briscuit. What a great ambiance and atmosphere.
I liked the relaxed feel of this restaurant. The steak was superb. Will definitely come back to try more dishes.
We lived our experience here. The restaurant decor was beautiful and the food was delicious. I had the elk tenderloin and it was fantastic. The sides were flavorful and creative. We definitely plan to visit again soon.
This was our first visit to Bald Head Bistro. We shared the Game Platter and added a 2 oz portion of Elk. We also added a side of brussels sprouts and mushrooms. The quail was tasty but mostly breading, the venison chop was tasty as was the Elk but it had a bit of gristle. The portion of meat for the price was quite small. We wanted so badly to like this place but we could not dig out from under all of the salt. The service (Liz) was fantastic as was the wine list but they weren't terribly knowledgable of the wines they were selling.
Great meal and great service. Drinks were wonderful as well.
Enjoyed everything about our dinner. The food was good. The service was better. The menu is eclectic but unfortunately some of the items are not available. Hopefully this will change over time but this is the second time we've visited where not all items were available for ordering.
Great salads to start! Roasted brussel sprout salad was incredible! My husband loved the chopped salad and had pizza. I had the mixed game, good but belly pork a little smoky for me, but duck fat fries great. We shared a cherry truffle dessert! OMG, rich chocolate cake layered with tart cherries and whipped cream in a mason jar. Wasn't hungry before the first bite but that didn't stop me. I was still stuffed 5 hours later and had no regrets!
Worst experience ever here! We drove from Chattanooga passing many good restaurants for our anniversary dinner! First of all they were out of bread, Diet Coke was flat, my tea stayed empty, I ordered a filet and on the menu it says a salad comes with it, online it says “side”, neither came with it, I was told a 6 oz filet came alone. I then asked for Worcestershire sauce, my steak was cold by the time it came. Also, my $9 potato ordered loaded was completely dry and they couldn’t find salt or pepper and another table brought it to me! It was just TERRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!! Service totally ruined this special occasion!!!!!!
Enjoy dining here because of the atmosphere and western feel. The selections are usually eclectic with a Wyoming style. I was a little disappointed with the scaled down version of the menu from previous visits, but our selections were enjoyable nonetheless. The service was great and attentive without being annoying. The restaurant seemed warm and stuffy however and coupled with our table location near the kitchen made the overall evening good but not spectacular as we have grown to expect at this establishment.
Another excellent experience at the BHB! We had four people in our party, and everyone enjoyed their meal immensely.
The great food, personal service, and lodge atmosphere combine for both the perfect date night or important business meetings.
The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and wine list. And provide just the right amount of attention.
I highly recommend the the BHB!
Consistently good and well priced. The service is always good, too. A pleasantly sophisticated restaurant in a fine dining desert.
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
