A group of six of us dined at Board and You Bistro and Wine Bar Friday night. We started with a few signature cocktails including the Basil Gimlet, Bitter Blood and Old Fashioned, plus a Miller Lite. All drink selections were excellent. We shared the Fried Goat Cheese, Crispy Cauliflower, Pan Seared Scallops and a cup of the Mexican Street Corn Soup for starters. They were excellent! The entrees we had were the Filet Mignon, Hanger Steak-both cooked to desired temperature, Fish and Chips and two of us ordered the special, Spicy Seafood Pasta. This dish was so delicious! The spice was perfect. We agreed this should become a permanent menu item! We ordered the Blueberry Pie Bar and Cheesecake for dessert with multiple spoons to share. Both were great! The owner's Zack Flanagan and Sean Lara, GM Amber Walker and Executive Chef Aaron Flanagan visited our table to make sure the food was prepared to our liking. Everything was perfect. The waitress kept our drinks replenished, which was key to our overall experience. We had a great night and will definitely be back soon!
Thank you Board & You!

Very loud! We had a great server (Rachel?) so the service was fabulous. Given that it’s a Charcuterie Board place, and that “Board” is in the name, they might actually bring your charcuterie board out on a, well, board, instead of a porcelain plate. Will likely go back, but in no rush to do so.

YALL. This place is E V E R Y T H I N G! The drinks were amazing as well as the food. For drinks I got the Queen Bee which was so delicious & refreshing! For food, we ordered the charcuterie board for an appetizer & it was great! I ordered the burger for dinner & my friends got the special seafood pasta. The burger was perfectly cooked & so good! I had a bite of my friends seafood pasta & let me tell you, they need to add it to the menu it was PHENOMENAL!!! 10/10 would recommend. This is definitely our new spot!

Absolutely fabulous and only going up from here!!! Filet was phenomenal and truly one of the best I have ever eaten (tenderness was unreal!) , hanger steak was just how they described it to us, the burger was cooked perfectly and amazing flavor to a T. 4 cheese pasta shared with our whole table and we loved. Appetizer board was filled and drinks were tasty and consistent. Service was 10/10 and we will be back soon!! You definitely get what you pay for. So impressed!

Server was decent. Boujee grilled cheese was great. Bone in pork chop was dry and Over cooked. Out of sweet potato purée so it was subbed with a dry half burnt piece of a potato cake.

First of all, our evening was great and we will go back!

We were greeted nicely by the hostess and shown quickly to our table for two. Right away there were two things that stood out, the waitstaff were all wearing face shields and the restaurant was at full capacity.

We both order specialty cocktails that were so good (B&Y Manhattan and Old Fashion) Excellent choices. We also ordered the charcuterie starter—UNBELIEVABLE. If the meal stopped there I would have been satisfied. The only bummer was our starter arrived well before our cocktails, a small timing thing that can be fixed next time.

The sever was super accommodating as we didn’t want a rushed meal and let us go along at our own pace and fired the order when we were ready. Filet Mignon and the Hanger Steak were our choices-cooked at a perfect M/R.

We booked via Open Table and mentioned it was our Anniversary, it was nice to be greeted when we checked in with congratulations but the champagne mid-meal was totally unexpected and so appreciated. Thank you.

We had plans elsewhere for dessert so we concluded our meal and corked our unfinished bottle of wine and left very satisfied.

As a new restaurant with a great concept, We would like to make you aware of a few things that made us slightly uncomfortable. One, walking into the restaurant at full capacity was a little surprising. Our table was barely 3 feet from the next table, it was a beautiful night and the garage doors opened would have provided some ventilation for the close quarters.
The waitstaff wore face shield which make sense when you are trying to communicate with guests but they really proved useless, as the waitress is standing above and talking down, so from a health standpoint I would have preferred her to have had a mask.

Thank you and continued good luck

Good service. They were out of charcuterie and the soup. The food we had was good, but the pasta type was different than what was stated on the menu. The venue was bright (lights could’ve been dimmed) and full, so it was a bit loud.

Delightful food, excellent service and warm, rustic atmosphere! Perfect date night with my husband. We were impressed from the apps & cocktails, to the salmon and burger entree paired with a delicious glass of wine. Just go ahead and get all 3 desserts on the menu - you won’t be disappointed. Next reservation will be for a girls night out.

I’ve never been to a restaurant where everything from the food, drinks, atmosphere and service is an experience. You can tell there was much thought that went behind every single aspect of this restaurant and that’s what sets this place above everywhere else. The staff is very professional, attentive, knowledgeable and helpful. You can tell the people there are really enjoying themselves. The food and drinks are outstanding. I love this place!

If you are looking for tasty cocktails, the best appetizers, delicious entrees, and an overall amazing dining experience, GO TO BOARD AND YOU BISTRO! We tried several cocktails and loved them all! My faves: Queen Bee, Basil Gimlet, and Dept 75. We tried all the appetizers except for one and they were all delicious! My faves: fried goat cheese and fried cauliflower (the sauce that came with these is AMAZING)!! My husband and I both ordered the BY Burger and I died and went to heaven. Best burger I’ve ever had! (Better than St Elmos Burger Study in Indy!) I got it cooked Medium and it was just perfect! My father in law got the pork chop which was also delicious and my mother in law had the wedge salad which was equally tasty! Last but not least the dessert! We all had the blueberry pie. I don’t normally like pie/cobbler type desserts, but I couldn’t get enough of this one! So dang good! Make reservations today! You will love BY Bistro!!!!

This was our second time dining at Board and You Bistro, and we could not recommend it more. The food has been absolutely delicious and perfectly cooked both times, not to mention the cocktails. The Dazed Daisy is my favorite!!
The ambiance is perfect and the staff could not be friendlier.
Congrats to Board and You Bistro for creating the place to be in downtown New Albany! We can’t wait to go back.

The owners did a fabulous job with this place. It was so nice and refreshing to see the owner walking around greeting guests and carrying drinks to tables. We had the filet mignon and it was cooked perfectly. The drinks tasted great and came in a quick manor. My only critiques would be due to corona we had to make a reservation and waited for 40 at the bar due to the table before us taking longer. And then the noise level was rather loud due to us sitting by the larger group tables. Overall this place is perfect!
