Delighted to enjoy outside dining in the garden with authentic entrecote and pomme frites. A bit overpriced- but attentive, cheery service and obvious attntieness to minimizing COVID risks made it worth it. Cute location in a cute town.

I celebrated my wife’s birthday at Bistro and the entire experience was excellent! They had COVID rules in place and we felt very safe there. We had a table for two in the back area. It was quiet and cozy. The servers and the food was outstanding!! We look forward to returning there again soon!!

Outside dining is just like being in France. Moules frites and the Niçoise salad are always wonderful, and the Mac and cheese side was very tasty. Best frites in the tri state area!

Excellent meal and so appreciate everything they did to ensure health and safety during our first meal out since the pandemic started. Lovely outdoor space and excellent food and cocktails as always. Our server was very attentive and pleasant, but a bit "green". Will definitely get back here again soon!

Dining al fresco on the sidewalk felt like a true European experience! Every effort was made to keep guests and staff safe.. the food was delightful, the French rose' was well chilled and refreshing, and the group next to us had a puppy! What's better than that?

Bistro 112 served my friend and I an excellent meal. The service was well-timed. The atmosphere, relaxing, the decor colorful and there are lots of nice art pieces upon which to rest your eye. The golden beet and ginger soup had just the right amount of snap to it. The steak went over very well. Cooked medium rare and presenting a most welcome tenderness. The eggplant dish had a number of tastes to recommend it from the crispy breaded exterior to the light tomato sauce accompanying the zucchini and onions surrounding it. I also had a side salad with a very light and tasty Boston lettuce, walnuts, grapes and a refreshing dressing. Sharing a good meal at the end of a very busy week is a delight and we certainly appreciated our visit to Bistro 112.

Bistro 112 was wonderful, as always! I had the steak with pepper sauce and my husband had the special (pan-fried chicken with curry sauce). Both were perfectly prepared and delicious. We also ordered a side of Brussels sprouts, which were amazing! The sauce was so good I dipped my fries in it - heavenly! The service was excellent, and even though the downstairs dining area was almost full, it wasn't too noisy. We could still have a conversation. Overall, a wonderful experience!

We were greeted at the door and taken care of immediately. Since this was a special occasion, we were offered a very special table. Everyone was super friendly. The food was superb and the ambiance just perfect for our anniversary. We loved the experience, and although we were only visiting for the weekend, hope to return sometime.

I had the scallop/mushroom app and the duck entree, both were unique and delicious. My wife was very happy with her onion soup and beet salad. She loved the candies nuts in the salad. Our table was secluded by the window and the service was very attentive. Only complaint was they turned off the special holiday light display before my wife got to see it.

Service is generally excellent at Bistro 112 but dined here Friday night with very slow service from the initial drinks to the entrees and no recognition of this from the wait staff or owner. Food is excellent. Very charming ambience.

The duck, bread and onion soup were delicious ! The dining area is small so be sure to make a reservation. Very quaint and the music was lovely. It was decorated with Christmas lights which was a nice touch. Will definitely go back next time I’m in the area.

While visiting Shepherdstown we passed by The Press Room and noticed it serves brunch. There seem to be few brunch options in town and the PR’s brunch menu looked limited, but we decided to return the next morning. We were glad we did. The PR’s official brunch menu, while including some nice options, is deceiving - in a good way. When our server arrived, we were surprised to find that the list of daily specials rivaled the menu items - and all sounded great. The food itself also impressed. The portions were generous. And the service was friendly and attentive. So glad we chose PR!

This was our second visit to Bistro 112 and it won't be our last. What a great find in Shepherdstown. You feel as though you are in a small quaint restaurant in the French countryside. Service is excellent and the food is superb. We really enjoy this cozy restaurant and look forward to visiting again. Would absolutely recommend it to folks visiting Shepherdstown.

Perfect! Presentation, service, food. If you are looking for a special dining experience or a place to visit regularly, you won’t regret choosing Bistro. I’m quite the critic. (If a server addresses my party as “you guys”, the experience is soured.) So I can tell you that the staff is well trained and the food is as appealing to the eye as it is delicious - meeting my expectations for a lovely outing at Bistro. Bon Appetit.

This place felt as if I was dining at my friend’s home. Very comfy, quaint, quiet. I loved the old building. The crispy chicken sandwich on the specials menu was GREAT! The waitress was funny and congenial. Only down side was it took awhile for our entrees to arrive. Would highly recommend nonetheless!!

My wife and I went for date night at Bistro 112. I had been wanting to go here for quite awhile, and it was a very enjoyable experience. Appetizer, the house-made Pate, was very good. Scallops, which I had for my entrée, were amazing! My wife's steak, with peppercorn cream sauce was also great! Side items with entrées seemed not quite up to par, and rice was bland and slightly undercooked. Desert was spectacular! My wife had a traditional vanilla Crème Brulee, and I had the Chocolate Mousse, both with Cappuccino. Serving sizes were perfect, and absolutely delicious.

Overall, was a great meal and a fantastic evening. Would definitely recommend to a friend or family.
