Drinks (mohitos especially) we’re terrible. Way too sweet.
Server brought salad course before we’d even received all of our appetizers, let alone had time to eat them.
As usual the Bistro on Main is the place to go for any special occasion. The people are friendly and efficient and the food is to die for. But whether it is for a birthday or just a burger, it's the best restaurant choice in Southwest Virginia.
Welcoming and friendly staff. Great amount of natural light and nice spacing of tables. My group had a variety of dietary preferences (vegetarian, gluten-free, aloha gal) and everyone found a meal that they enjoyed. Nice selection of wine and cocktail. Never felt rushed during our dinner.
Fabulous food as wonderful staff. They do a fine job on COVID protocols. We will definitely be back!
Traveling as a single on a business trip.
Greeted warmly when I walked-in.
Sat at the bar.
Adequate social distancing.
Both bartender attentive.
Service prompt and friendly.
One suggestion; I had the Bibb Salad.
I thought that the "portion" was miniscule.
It must have been a "one-off", because everything else perfect.
Outstanding service from Dana and Artemis, one of my favorites, on the wine list. Great meal after a great win over the Citadel!
The entire dining experience was quite nice. From the moment we entered the wait staff was attentive, the food was very good and the atmosphere was quite nice.
Outstanding meal and service.
Nothing fancy, but food was good and we had a very good server. Bartender was very helpful with our wine selection. We’d return.
Bistro on Main is always a delight! Even in the midst of Covid, wonderful food and service continue. Our service person last Wednesday was Medea. She was outstanding! She was very busy extremely attentive to each person. We are always eager to come back.
An anniversary dinner as we made our way home after a family visit - and it was surprisingly wonderful!!
I really wish they had better selections of wine by the glass. They were all mediocre choices. The bottles were much better wines. Such a shame.
Everything was easy but the salmon was over cooked. Very hard to eat salmon that’s not over cooked in a restaurant.
Everything was excellent, small place so reservations it highly advised.
Service from Morty always excellent as is food.
We love Bistro on Main and always try to get a reservation when we are in town. They are consistent- great food, great service, and the dining room is small enough to rarely get too noisy. With covid, they had even fewer tables set up m, and we felt completely comfortable dining inside. A wonderful place to enjoy a great dinner and some wine with friends.
We went to college in Lexington and were so happy that the Bistro was as good as we remembered! Service was execellent, courteous, prompt, and discreet. The food was so yummy; honestly, it was one of the better meals on our trip! Also, the tables were nicely spaced for social distancing.
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Bistro on Main.
Our meal selections were all excellent (Salmon and Walleye).
The wine list was solid and reasonably priced.
Service was excellent and the positive rapport that we established definitely added to the overall dining experience.
Always a delicious dinner with excellent service!
Bistro on Main was the perfect place to eat during our first visit to Lexington. The friendly staff and service were tremendous and the food was exceptional. We hope to come back again!
Trout was delicious and the corned beef and cabbage was tender and flavorful.
Apleasnt, casual dinner with very good food on a mini-vacation in Lexington. The chef's special, crusted rockfish, was excellent.
Excellent food excellent service have not had a bad meal there yet
Excellent food and service as always
I ordered the butternut squash ravioli. It was divine. Morty, server on the bar side of the restaurant is outstanding. I will be back!
We came here 2 years ago and loved it enough to return. Still an excellent place to dine
Very nice service. Excellent quality food. Very hot. Nice waiter, he was attentive and all around nice guy. I felt bad w covid because not many customers.
Service and food were generally excellent. Bread pudding was overcooked and dry.
Great meal great staff great location!!
Great Food and service! We will be back!
Dinner was wonderful. The wine was perfect. Dana took great care of us. The bistro is a wonderful place to have dinner.
The entrees were very tasty, but on the small size, so I would not recommend these entrees, if you are real hungry. I started with the Bistro Salad which was delicious. I chose one of their entree specials for the evening, the Shrimp & Scallop Linguine. The entree was very good and there were plenty of shrimp and scallops, but it was short on linguine. My husband had the Shrimp & Grits which were delicious, but a very small serving. We are not large people, nor do we have large appetites. We split a Chocolate Cheesecake for dessert, which helped to fill us up.
Excellent COVID precautions. Small crowd, and service was excellent. I had the evening special, a sautéed shrimp/scallops dish with fettuccine, delicious. My son and wife had shrimp and grits that they gave a thumbs up to. We had lemon creme brûlée, cheesecake and bread pudding for dessert. All were excellent. A nice dining experience.
Excellent service and food quality. Best burger ever!Memorable experience.
Very cozy restaurant in the heart of Main Street, Lexington, VA. Good food, good wines and good service!
Very good experience in Lexington. We had birthday dinner for my wife at the Bistro on a Saturday evening. It was a very good experience. Menu if very good, service excellent and nice ambiance. For Lexington, at the top of the food chain. Would definitely return.
Great food good atmosphere !
Scallops were delicious!
My sister had their special which was scallops and spinach. I ordered their Gumbo with andouille sausage, chicken and shrimp. She was happy. I was happy.
Staff wore masks as did most patrons when talking with the staff. And they observed social distancing practices with table placement.
Tables well spaced for covid and service was great
Always a great place to have a great dinner. Morty makes the best drinks!
Shrimp and Grits were delicious! Salmon was tender and juicy. We loved our waiter and can't wait to go again!
