    So accommodating. We ordered two salads from the menu but both of us wanted a change: cheese, type of lettuce, etc. The server was so easy to deal with and our meals came out perfect. So, so glad the scallop salad is back on the menu!

    We sat on the enclosed patio for lunch. It was very comfortable but quite noisy. It was much more quiet inside the dining area. Both the service and food were outstanding. Our server was very accommodating to our desire to visit with each other. Highly recommend!

    There is never a meal that isn't spectacular at Bistro 217! Every plate is perfectly presented and each bite invokes the desire to do a happy dance or at least allow an "Oh my gosh this is amazing" to slip through a bliss mouthful of goodness. We try not to repeat dishes, but the Tomato, Crab & Jalepeno Soup is a must every time as are the Chocolate Cayenne and Coffee Ice creams...try 'em mixed, you will thank me for the suggestion. The new Chop Block is a welcome addition and I hope to see Lamb Chops on it soon, but the delicious Venison on the Chop Block is truly a winner. We are always grateful for a table touch from the owner herself allowing us the chance to let her know how amazing the food and service are and also to wish her much continued success. Do not miss and opportunity to dine here! Lunch is just as exceptional as dinner and only the soup and salads repeat on the menu. Two wonderful experiences on the same day have happened quite a few times for us especially when we have visitors in town.

    First time at Bistro 217, and we will definitely be back. Food, wine, and service were all excellent. We do have to call out the homemade ice cream as something you can't miss! The mint chocolate chip is made with fresh mint, from their kitchen garden, and the taste of the fresh mint is completely different than what you buy in the store. Best mint chip I've ever had and that's saying something!
