Chiara Bistro Ratings and Reviews
This was the 2nd time I ate here in 10 days. The first was a business dinner on a Thursday night and then this past Saturday evening. Both times the service was excellent. Thoughtful waiters who made real recommendations, accommodated our indecision on wines, were attentive without being intrusive.
I gave the food a 5 star because just about everything was wonderful. The scallops are excellent, the lamb appetizer, the char, the martini, etc. The mushroom ravioli was good but not up to quite the same standards as the other dishes.
Thanks for 2 wonderful evenings--we will be back!
My mom and I came on Wed evening. Our server was incredible. She saw that there was a small hair on my dinner plate (I was totally okay with it). When the bill came, my meal was taken off. That just shows over and above customer service. Not to mention the food is to die for!! Coming in for a Christmas office party on Dec 8th, cannot wait!! Ever experience has been consistently excellent.
A wonderful evening celebrating a special event. Martinis and appetizers were delicious. We had the calamari and the hummus plate. Both were amazing! Our entrees were all excellent as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. We will definitely visit again. Service was excellent as well.
We have come to expect a fine meal from Chiara’s and tonight was no exception. My wife had the mussels and a salad for her meal and I had the duck. Everything was perfectly prepared and well-presented. We selected a moderately priced red wine (Caymus blend) that matched perfectly with the duck. Our waitress was fabulous (very animated and knowledgeable). You will not be disappointed!
Great local spot with tremendous innovative and creative cooking without being too "out there". Friendly staff, decent bar scene (but it is the suburbs), and warm environment. I have eaten there several times over the years and it is consistently great. Latest tip - if you like scallops, the current offering on the menu is "off the charts" great!
Had dinner and drinks there the other night, Vickie and Chuck were attentive and friendly. The food is very good although I wished they offered a surf & turf combo. I had the duck ( I wish the portion was bigger) but was a good meal regardless. We sat at the bar and unfortunately some guy and his wife (?) - all he did was talk about himself, blah, blah - I didn’t think there was enough air in the room. My wife and I like this neighborhood gem.
We had a wonderful experience, as always. The seating was good away from the noise, the food was excellent as were the tastings of food. The service was great as well and we enjoyed the treat you served at the end , noting our anniversary.

Second time here. Great both times. Cocktails are excellent and food is amazing. Portions are perfectly sized. Great little restaurant with a very attentive staff. This will be a regular spot for me.
I grew up in a culinary family so I am an unabashed food snob. If you love food this is for you. If you love just getting full, go somewhere else.
My wife and I went to Chiara Bistro to celebrate her birthday this past week. When the waitress came to our table, my wife informed her that she suffers from celiac disease. She further explained that it was a gluten allergy and not just an intolerance. The waitress then replied, "Gluten allergy, intolerance, it's all the same thing!" We were shocked by her indifference and flippant attitude to such a serious food allergy. How could an upscale restaurant take such a laissez faire position? The waitresses' attitude towards my wife's disorder put a damper on the rest of our experience. Warning: if you suffer from a food allergy, DO NOT dine here!
I love this restaurant. The service is great and the food is always delicious. The menu has many intriguing choices and I'm always torn between which of the wonderful sounding meals to order. My only criticism is that the entrees are not huge so you really will want to order a starter, salad or side dish which pushes the cost of the meal up quite a bit.
This time my wife and I celebrated her birthday at this excellent restaurant. No need to say that the service was again at a very high level, discrete but o so efficient and personal. The food has always been well prepared & delicious and this time it wasn't different. We really enjoyed our dinner, even hours and days later. :-) You notice that the owners are closely involved and make sure that every detail is ok. Great job! This is one of the few restaurants we always return to and it never disappoints.
This attractive restaurant exceeded our expectations. The staff were all friendly and helpful. I was impressed with the cleanliness of the dining and kitchen areas. From a distance, it appeared that the kitchen was run professionally with a crew that enjoyed what they were doing. Everyone in our party loved their dinners. The dessert was perfect as well.
