    We had a late lunch/early dinner (so, between 3:00 and 4:30) and it was very quiet, which was wonderful - for a change, we could have a good conversation with no overhead music and no overly-loud tables nearby. What a change from the normal of both lunchtime and dinnertime restaurant din that seem to qualify most restaurants these days. The food is dependable and good, and our server was very personable and attentive. No complaints!

    Service was TERRIBLE. They overcooked my steak (ordered rare got a medium) and 2 specific members of staff had the worst attitude about fixing it. Less than 10 minutes after I got my corrected food, the waitress was asking to box it up. It felt like I was being shooed out of the restaurant for making them correct their mistake. The situation was turned into an unnecessary mess and they should be embarrassed by their weird rudeness over *their* mistake. I didn’t make a big deal out of it, just asked for it to be correct- so why was I met with such a bad attitude? Very disappointed in this. They quietly comped it, didn’t say anything. I would have been happy enough they fixed it but what gross way to treat your patrons over such a small issue that’s ON THEM! The food and drinks were amazing so it’s sad I will never step foot in this place again.

    A super experience, had Sunday brunch. Kyle was our outstanding server! Both entrees were good, husband had omelette special (sausage, ham, cheese omelette, roasted potatoes and toast), I had the vegetable eggs Benedict, sauce was a little bland...and cool, my only concern, otherwise delicious!

    This one of favorite places to go for dinner in Lincoln. The staff is always courteous, polite and attentive. We’ve enjoyed the dining room, the bar, and love dining outside when we can. The menu options are varied and delicious, we’ve tried most of the entrees! The homemade chips are fantastic! As are the Brussel sprouts. Thank you Piedmont Bistro for another enjoyable evening!

    Took my mother-in-law there for her birthday. We had a lovely evening. I had steak frite and she had a chicken dish. We shared the chocolate torte for dessert. Steak was flavorful. My only complaint was that I ordered it medium rare and it came out medium+. Sat on the patio and it was lovely...

    Wanted to try this place since it had great reviews. I had made a reservation (unnecessarily) due to comments about its popularity & having to wait for a table. I would say the atmosphere was 5 star with tasteful decor but the service was a little less. Overall friendly staff, simple breakfast of eggs, sausage patties, and fresh fruit was good.

    The restaurant was kind to note my preference for a quiet location and phoned ahead to say they were quite busy, and for a quiet table they'd recommend their outdoor patio, which suited us perfectly. When we arrived the restaurant was nearly full but not that noisy after all, though we did want to be seated outdoors. Our server was prompt and efficient, the meal was very good, we left very satisfied and greatly relieved that there wasn't one single apology for anything due to covid-19. Too many restaurants are still suffering from covid complications, and that can test the most patient diners. Piedmont Bistro definitely has their act together.

    We LOVE Piedmont Bistro - the carefully considered menu and the delicious cocktails. You in face have the FAVORITE old fashioned of a number of our friends and team members. Our service last night was the PITS. Our waiter never introduced himself, never re-filled empty water glasses, we had to flag him down to order drinks and food. We know that with the great resignation it can be hard to keep a good team together but this gentleman needs LOTS of coaching.
