They have closed their doors! Very disappointing as it has been our favorite Asheboro restaurant since they opened. My wife and I even had our wedding reception there.
We found Bistro 42 while traveling through town. Convenient to our hotel, but not a chain restaurant, which we tend to avoid. It's in a strip center, so ambiance inside and out is a little plain. Entire staff was very friendly and accommodating. Thursday night happened to be half price wine night (always a good thing). We split the Sashima Tuna appetizer and it was very good, and a good portion. Hubby had the Bistro Chicken Rustica- also good. I had the Blackened Beef Tips (an appetizer) as an entree. Very large portion and cooked exactly to my specification but unfortunately was chewy. Overall, the meal was delightful. We were glad to find such a nice independent restaurant.
Pleasant atmosphere in a small strip mall. Generous portions of well prepared food. Knowledgeable servers. Good wine list.
We have always liked dining at Bistro 42...the food has never disappointed and the service is usually quite good. Lately, with new management, some of the menu items have received a little makeover, and what was once good service is now outstanding!
The food and service were outstanding!
We will definitely be back!
We went for diner on valentines weekend and loved it. It was a little pricey but it totally was worth every penny. The food was amazing ( Tuna Appetizer was delish). Our server Anna was very sweet and apparently has a photographic memory the way she rattled off the specials and remembered our complicated order without writing it down. Over all it was a very wonderful experience and I will be going back.
Dinner was great, but the restaurant did not receive my Open Table reservation. Next time I will call the restaurant directly. I showed them my reservation number but they had no record of it.
When we arrived they did not have our reservation. Luckily there was a table. The food was good but the service was middle of the road. The food came out at all different times and a few things we asked for were overlooked. I will def try it again though.
Husband and I met sister and brotherinlaw here for lunch, mid way between Charlotte and Raleigh. Great food and presentation. Wait staff was excellent. Needs a bigger sign on Rt 64.
Will be back. Already told neighbor about it.
I found Bistro 42 eight years ago on a visit through Asheboro and have loved it ever since. Now I travel the two hours to get there at least once a year to enjoy the regular menu items I love best (blackened beef tip, pomme frites)and try new ones. I have never been disappointed. If you are in the area you owe it to yourself to go.
Ashley at the bar was wonderful. She even stuffed some bleu cheese olives for me. Food was unexpectedly good. Truly for Ashesboro, N.C. Our server was new and was willing to find out my questions about the menu. I will go back when in Ashesboro. David, manager/owner, check on us to make sure we were care for and the restaurant meant our expectation.
Good ambiance. A little more upscale then you expect in this area. Wine list was adequate. The menu looked promising. However, I got the pilaf under and the sauce was so heavy. I barely could taste the fish, the pilaf, and the "spicy coleslaw". actually the meal seemed bland but looked like it should taste better. The appetizer was a chicken lettuces wrap, salty with warm Boston lettuce leaves. My Dinner guest got the shrimp and grits and loved it with a Cesar salad. so maybe I got the wrong thing
Nice evening spent at Bistro. I particularly like the menu insert with nightly specials that complements an already good menu. Food we received was appropriately warm and presented very nicely. Drink specials were too sweet for our taste so we passed. Bistro has more competition than it used to but is holding well.
Mussel app was very good. Entree special was over cooked but they fixed that with no problem. Companion had a stuffed chicken breast which was excellent. The key lime pie got rave reviews at our table. Service was very good. Efficient, unobtrusive...just the way I like it. I put a 25% tip on my credit card but noticed that the charge sent in was for the meal and tax only. I was disappointed that the management did not give my intended tip to the server. It is going to be difficult finding and keeping competent servers if you deny them their intended tips. There are other restaurants in Asheboro every bit as good as this one. I went to one of them last night for the second time. I live a 35 minute drive away from Asheboro in a larger city with many very good restaurants bit I enjoy a tasty adventure...not at the expense of a really good server, though.
We met here for lunch. It was the first time for the 5 of us at this restaurant. The food, service and selection were all very good. Definitely worth visiting if you are in the area.
