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!

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.
