    Lunch French Onion soup and house salad, added hard boiled egg. $13.50. Maybe a little pricey. Soup not as good as usual. Few onions and croutons, lots of cheese. Salad very good. Service excellent. Had reservations but seated at high top in bar. Very noisy, not in bar but behind us through divider very very noisy and it was at 1:30pm. Still love the place!

    Everything was amazing. We eat out often and rarely walk away completely satisfied in every aspect of our meal but we did on Saturday night. Service was top notch, loved smaller setting feel. We had wonderful seasonal drinks all of which tasted great. Apps we did the Gouda dip and the crab cakes. Great flavor on both. The green goddess dressing on my salad was some of the best I’ve tasted and they make it! My husband had French onion soup which came out looking exactly how you would want it to Look. Main courses I had the filet and my husband the ribeye, both cooked to a perfect medium, mashed potatoes were seasoned very well and the veggies complimented it all very well. I added a side of Gorgonzola cream sauce and I was so glad I did, amazing. Definitely will make the hour trip from Omaha and dine again soon.

    My bison burger was somewhat over cooked from my order of medium rare while everything else was great! I have ordered it many times with great delight so it wasn’t my usual treat.

    The beet fries were an amazing appetizer. I tried the Green Goddess Salad, which was light and tasty, while my husband really enjoyed the Red Reuben Sandwich. Our server was friendly and attentive and we had an overall very nice dining experience.

    One of the best restaurants in Lincoln for lunch out with friends is Piedmont Bistro. The food is always good and it is such a nice size place. On my recent visit we got the Salmon burger, which was delicious. And the dessert was one of my favorites, Strawberry Pie. It was scrumptious (probably the best strawberry pie I have ever had). The service is always good and I've never had to wait for the food to be served.

    We had an impromptu family dinner so no special occasion. Our son had the special, which included a steak with bleu cheese topping and he loved it. All our meals were great and we each tried a different beer -- 2 on-tap and 1 can of Guinness. Our server (Dan) was attentive but not hovering. Lovely evening meal.

    We had to try the Bistro, because of friend’s recommendation. The food was good, but nothing really special. The cabbage with apples was sparse and really did not have much flavor - where were the apples? The grilled chicken breast was very, very good and moist. The potatoes were perfect. The wild rice was very good. Would have liked to have rolls. We were asked if we would like dessert, but nothing was said about an offering of soup or salad. We were thankful for the gluten free options available. We are used to cooking at home and really expected more from the “special” seasoning.
