Bistro 112 is a neighborhood French Bistro in the center of historic downtown Shepherdstown. It is a favorite of local residents and a haven for travelers passing through - who enjoy the area for its history, theater, music, biking trails, small shops and river activities.

We prepare local ingredients into French favorites such as steak au poivre, coquille St Jacques, roasted chicken, salad nicoise, pommes frites, savory & sweet crepes, house made soups and rich desserts. Rooms are available for private events.

This place is a hidden gem!

Basic selection of classic French food bistro. Each of the plates we had was nicely presented, cooked at perfection and delicious.

The service was outstanding.

I recommend this place.

Always a delight to sneak away to Bistro 112 for lunch, especially on a chilly, damp day. The French Onion Soup is outstanding. The wine selection is quite fine and far more than reasonably priced. All that, plus splitting a favorite sandwich with a loved one, and having warm, friendly service -- all the ingredients for a fine afternoon meal and welcome pause to a hectic day.

Cozy atmosphere and wonderful ambiance. The staff is always friendly, welcoming, and helpful. Bistro 112 is the perfect spot for a martini or a glass of wine at the bar or a delicious meal in the dining room. If you are visiting Shepherdstown, put Bistro 112 on your list of dining options.

We had dinner at The Bistro 112 for my birthday and it was a wonderful experience. The service was impeccable. Our waitress was spot on with suggestions and being attentive to our needs. The food was phenomenal and they even placed a candle in my birthday cake, which was on the house. They truly made my birthday a special occasion all the way around!

Excellent food - good ingredients well prepared. Paid attention to my wife's allergy listed in the booking and held back some ingredients on some of the menu selections so that she had a wider choice from the menu which was much appreciated.

Petty and negative experience at this previously very hospitable spot. I willingly paid the $10 upcharge for adding shrimp to my salad — a little pricey but that’s okay. Turns out, that bought you just 3 average-size shrimp! Bad enough to be scammed at a place where you will easily spend $125 for two, but when I very politely suggested that perhaps there had been a mistake and questioned the price, she just cited “policy.” Then she offered to get a manager but never did. We did see her speak to the manager and the manager simply shrugged. I’m shrugging too, wondering why they didn’t grab my salad, toss on a couple more shrimp, and keep a customer? This was my 4th time there and now my last.

There's something special about having a really charming restaurant close to home, where every meal is wonderfully prepared and all the staff and servers feel like old friends. Soups are always outstanding, as are the various specials. But our old bistro favorites are, well, old favorites. It's often difficult to choose between a dish one especially enjoys -- and anticipates in advance of walking through the doorway -- and trying a special new dish. The wine list is about the most reasonable around, and while we generally stick with a glass or bottle of wine, we have been known to sip a nicely crafted cocktail on occasion. Truly a great value, whether at lunch or dinner, and one of several restaurants which make Shepherdstown a delightful, low-key dining destination.

The food was exquisitely perfect!

The dessert was a home made orange cake
So tasty!!!

The entree was beyond awesome!
A Salmon dish cooked with a lemon butter sauced prepared so divinely I can not describe what I ate! Just Order and see for yourself!

The house salad was the most unusual blend
Of greens, dressing, Parmesan cheese and walnuts, I would love to duplicate it at home but sadly I know it can not be reproduced.


I will have to have dinner again at this restaurant soon!

We've been to Bistro 112 many times and it never fails to please. The atmosphere is comfortable with a casual elegance. The service is excellent and the food is always spot on. The bread is warm, delicious French bread - and could make a meal itself. We last went there just a few days ago for our anniversary and had a lovely, memorable time.

French bistros must have good pate and good bread and Bistro 112
has both so that’s a great beginning. We can recommend the fixed price dinner as a great value. There are reasonably priced wines. Service very attentive so Bistro 112 is highly recommended.

I don't have anything horrible to say but nothing great either. The service was on point. The food was good but not great. The price I paid for the meal, I was expecting more. I had the Steak entree and it just came with string fries. Steak was already cut into pieces which ok I guess, but some were tender and some were tough. The best part of the meal was the French onion soup it's outstanding.

The food was very good and the service was also good considering how busy they were. The menu is quite limited. Would highly recommend both the duck and the steak. Would not recommend the cheese plate appetizer. There was nothing wrong with it but it was very unexciting. I would go back.
