Steak was cold and the salmon was overcooked. We were disappointed because the meal we had there this past summer was incredible. Maybe it was an off night.

Food was not prepared as requested. Asked for the steak to be well done and was still rare even after being sent back once . There was a large party going on upstairs and the servers were tending to their requests and were less attentive to the needs of the guests in the main dining area.

Chose to have Thanksgiving dinner here rather than cooking. We had never been here before and relied on Open Table reviews. It’s a charming little place. Service was friendly and attentive. They offered a prix fix menu at a good price. The mushroom soup starter was heavenly! We each had the turkey entre which tasted just like home. Stuffing was a tad salty for my taste but the rest of the plate was well seasoned. I had the delicious apple pie and ice cream for dessert. I look forward to eating here again as it was a pretty drive for me to get to and very close to elderly family. I’m hoping next time isn’t a holiday so surrounding businesses are open!

Wine was very well priced! Salad Nicoise was pretty good though the vinaigrette was supposedly lemon wasabi but couldn't taste the wasabi. Mussels good, broth very thick and creamy, unusual but good. Ratatouille delicious but served w an unusually large slab of fried eggplant topped w one small piece of mozzarella which was surprising that they took the time to list the mozzarella on the dish description - it was not a characterizing feature. Pasta bolognese was good w hearty pieces of meat. Cute , small place.

We enjoyed our dinner. The tomato soup was excellent, my husband had the pate, which was good, but the portion was huge. Had he known, he would have ordered a salad or soup for his main. As it was we had pate and pasta to bring home!

Our food was terrible. My green beans clearly came from a can and my mashed potatoes arrived cold. My dining partner's ratatouille existed of vegetables stewed in canned tomato sauce. Both dishes were unpalatable and our cheese plate came with graham crackers. Bistro 112 is an insult to French food and more reminiscent of a college's student first foray into cooking. I do not recommend it for any occasion.

Great service!!! I felt special. Server didn't call us "guys" once!!! She was so pleasant and professional. Wish more quality of service like that existed at most restaurants. Pinot was very nice. Food was great. Had the pasta and zucchini & squash side. Mixed it all together and wow.

Thought about how I wish I had two more days of leftovers. Will return!!!

Had dinner at Bistro 112 during the annual Contemporary American Theatre Festival on the local university campus. Food was at the highest level, service was attentive, friendly, and personal. Don't miss the duck if it's on the menu, or the desserts. Owner watches over the kitchen and dining room. We'd rate it best in the region, hands down.

We make Bistro 112 an annual part of our weekend with CATF. The owner and staff are great, and the food was outstanding. We brought our own wine the corkage fee is very modest. Highly recommend the Coquilles St. Jacques and the L'Entrecote ou Poivre. You won't be disappointed! What a wonderful gem in tiny Shepherdstown.
