Bistro 42 @ North 42 Degrees Estate Winery
Dinner was fabulous. The mussels were just wonderful. The service was awesome. Thank you Ellen for being such a great server.
Everyone had a great time!! We will be back.
Atmosphere was lovely. The restaurant was very modern with nice features. The shop was very quaint with some great gift ideas. The food was nice but expensive for what we received. The steaks were not cooked how ordered. The vegetables where cold. The special ‘gnocchi’ was delicious. Very fresh but I was told it came served on a bed of spinach, there were 4 pieces of spinach! Wine was fantastic
This winery is beautiful. The food was fantastic! Definitely coming back!
Another great meal at Bistro 42! The meal-- one of us had the steak, the other, the chicken-- was delicious! . We had the steak tips to start which were yummy and more than enough to share. But the biggest winner was the service. They were hosting a wedding reception upstairs in their normal dining room area, so we were situated on the main level near the tasting bar, which we knew about in advance as they were kind enough to call us to inform us in advance, making sure that we were ok with this arrangement. Our waitress, Soencer, was lovely. Very efficient, attentive, and professional. When our appetizer was slightly delayed due to the wedding meals going up, she apologized profusely and often, even though we said we were in no hurry and all was well. Then the GM (I'm sorry, I can't recall your name...) came to the table, added his apology, and told us he was comping our appetizer as well as the glasses of wine we were about to drink with our main course!
Truly above and beyond, and very much appreciated. We would have been back regardless, but just felt this merited sharing.
The noise level was very high at the tasting bar. Glad they closed the folding doors. Nice view however when I make a reservation for a special occasion and ask for the best seat in the house I do expect a nice table with a view. Had to ask for a window seat. Great service from Jay!! Yummy food and drink. Thanks.
Beautiful restaurant with fantastic views and ambiance. Server was lovely! Food was excellent- the salmon was cooked as requested. It was a chilly day and the fireplace was so appreciated!! I will confess I am not a wine connoisseur but the Gewurtztraminer was excellent!
Very relaxed atmosphere. Did not feel rushed at all with excellent service. Food was very good and was pleased that they even suggested the possibility of splitting orders at no extra cost - not often you see this but greatly appreciated. Highly recommend and will certainly return.
We did our tasting first with Gina, she was incredible!!! Jordan was our server and was on point with everything from start to finish.
Nice atmosphere with good food and excellent service.
Mary helped arrange an anniversary dinner for my parents. We picked a set menu and it was typed out on cards. Overall excellent service!
Overpriced food and underwhelmed with the quality of the food, it was meh, with very poor service. Not sure if the waitress was having a bad day, but not clearing the dishes from appetizers was not cool. Just got not happy vibes from her as well as the place. Won't be going back again.
Excellent service! Excellent wine! Will try a summer visit and sit on the patio! Upstairs inside dining area is loud. Overall dining experience was enjoyable!
Four of us enjoyed a wonderful dinner on a Friday. It was not very crowded so we were able to enjoy a fairly quiet dinner with wonderful views. Monica, our server, was great and very helpful. All of us loved our meals. We always dine here during our annual visit to the area. We were happy to be able to make a reservation.
It was extremely noisy, to the point of not being able to hear the waitress talk to us. There was a birthday party going on at the time. The food was not at all tasty, very small portions and was very pricey. Our waitress was excellent. Overall very disappointed with our experience and will not return for dinner.
Awesome food, great atmosphere and so close to home...no need to drive to the city with gems like these so close.
Fancy little place , service was amazing food was fancy , I will be back for the meat board and to try the lamb shank ! Never tried honey comb before and I was in love .
This is one of our go-to restaurants, and it never disappoints. It is the one winery in the region that has captured the 'California wine country' feel. The views off the back covered porch and upper deck are second to none. The food is always prepared exquisitely. Staff are very friendly, fun to chat with, and extremely knowledgable about their product and region as a whole.
Everyone is very welcoming and enthusiastic to serve. The food and drink are amazing. Highly recommend.
Service was outstanding, food was pretty good spot is beautiful
It was a beautiful night to sit on the Patio, our server was great, and our meal was wonderful. It really was enjoyed by our group of friends.
This was my first time at the new restaurant on the grounds of North 42 Degrees Winery, they really captured the view of the winery and lavender gardens!!!
Perfect place for a night out, service was good, atmosphere is beautiful and food was delicious !
Place was quiet for Sunday afternoon. Gloomy day and too windy to sit outdoors. Nice view, lots of natural light thru large windows. However window were dirty.
Food was excellent and we shared a nice bottle of Sauv Blanc wine. Visited the in-house store . Bought a bottle home.
Will be back for another visit
Fantastic winery and bistro. Food was outstanding, service was just great. We did a wine tasting first and our somelier was wonderful on her first day on job - she educated us and delighted us with some beautiful wines.
The bistro was absolutely lovely, beautiful view of winery sitting on upstairs patio. The food scrumptious. I highly recommend a visit.
The food was on the high end of mediocre. It was okay it was nothing to write home about I don't think I'll be going the back again the wine choices weren't the best very limited selection and the overall function of the whole design is very poor carting food up and down the stairs past customers very bad design
Fantastic! This was the perfect place to celebrate a birthday!!
Heard heard about North 42 but never went there until last Saturday; we've been missing an outstanding ambiance, menu, service and food quality. Having traveled globally and eaten many types of food...Bistro 42 is on par with the best. Wine tasting a pleasure with great staff and some good solid wines, recognizing the evolving Windsor/Essex terroir and experience. All in, don't miss it.
Great as usual
We reserved online. We arrived to a near empty building with many tables open at the windows. We were taken to a table in the middle of the room, so I asked for a window table. I was told those tables were reserved. I stated that I reserved a table as well and asked how I would reserve a window table. I was told there is a small box for special notes that I should have entered that into for a window seat. She was rather nasty about explaining and it just annoyed me. Our waitress Paige was awesome and actually saved their review! Our food was good, not spectacular for the price of almost $150 (1 appetizer, 2 mains and a bottle their house red). Not in a rush to go back!
Great evening. Staff was spot on with service. Every wine we ordered, a sample was given to make sure it met our expectations.
Beautiful facility. We ate on the patio overlooking the vineyards...like being in Europe. Food was excellent and our waitress was efficient, thorough, personable and took great care of us! Lovely way to spend an afternoon. A real treat. Congratulations on your excellent sparkling white wine!
Will definitely return.
Enjoyed a nice lunch on the main floor outdoor covered patio. Soooo nice. Our table shared scallops, shrimp, mussels and a beet salad. All excellent! So nice to have a quality food venue in Colchester!!!
We are wanted to enjoy a quiet lunch before heading back to the schoolyear chaos. North 42° did a fine job in accommodating us and making this a truly enjoyable experience.
Great evening and many thanks to Valter
This was my first time at Bistro 42. Our server was excellent, very friendly and welcoming. The food was excellent and so was the atmosphere. I would definitely come back and tell a friend.
It was great. Service was a bit slow, but the food was wonderful. Staff was very friendly. Overall a great experience.
Thanks for having us.
Such an amazing venue! Beautiful space and grounds and the staff were amazing!
For our first time to the restaurant, the table for two had a lovely view of the vineyard, the lake in the distance and the setting sun. There was an issue with the kitchen having lost our dinner order so the wait for our entrees was very long. But the issue was handled well once recognized and we were adequately compensated. The salad and desserts were very good, while our entrees were good but not exceptional. Overall we enjoyed the atmosphere and would give the restaurant another try.
A lovely site and outstanding food, great ambience. Wonderful place for a special occasion.
Great food. Great ambience. And I love their rose wine. We got engaged here in May and we live coming back when we’re in the area visiting family
Food and wine was delicious! This is the second time we've been here and it doesn't disappoint! I was also on crutches and the staff did everything to help me. Definitely recommend and we will most certainly be back!
