    We love South Bend Bistro and go there whenever we are in Sunriver and have a significant event to celebrate. The food and drinks are always outstanding. Last night we had the hazelnut crusted halibut and it was terrific. The outdoor deck is very inviting and Laura and her team are wonderful.

    Lovely evening on the deck . From the warm and effusive greeting from Laura to the custom crafted cocktail by Culley it was a wonderful dinner. The tomato and cucumber soup was sublime. Definitely will order that again. I had lamb chops which I like anytime but the preparation at SBB is superlative. My wife had the duck , one of her favs and always a standout. Culley and David conspired to recommend an outstanding bottle of wine to accompany the meal, elevating what was already outstanding. We have lived in Wash DC , Seattle and travelled all over the world and this little restaurant in Sunriver holds it own against the best we have enjoyed elsewhere.

    If you’re looking for excellent food, excellent service and a wonderful setting, this is the place to go in Sunriver. We started with the streamer clams and they were to die for! The rack of lamb and scallop entrees were wonderful. Best dinner experience we’ve had in Central Oregon!

    We loved our server (didn’t catch his name) but he was super patient with us, had timely service & really made our experience that much better. We took our parents out for their 40th wedding anniversary, I think this spot was a perfect place to celebrate them!all 8 of us loved our food, it was a dinner our entire family will cherish.

    I think the restaurant had a few too many diners for the staff on hand. The people who brought water and bread to the table were very attentive, but our waiter was slow to recognize us and was often nowhere to be seen. It might be that we were tucked back in a corner or it might be that he was overwhelmed by the number of tables he was trying to serve. That said, the food was excellent and more than made up for the slow service.

    Birthday dinner with my husband. David, our server, is so nice and very knowledgeable about the wine list. The filet mignon was melt in your mouth delicious. The steamer clams in a garlic butter broth was so incredibly tasty. SBB is one of the best dine outs in Central Oregon. It’s definitely worth the trip to Sunriver.

    I went on line to look at the menu and wine list and thought this would be a nice place to have our anniversary dinner. I was so very wrong. We were seated at a table with flies flying around the window. Then my husband had a huge ant on him. We told our server we like to eat slow and not be rushed. We ordered drinks and an appetizer. She kept coming back to ask for our dinner order but we hadn’t yet received our appetizer. 30 minutes later I asked her about the appetizer and she said she didn’t take an appetizer order. Then she corrected herself and said the tartare takes time. 10 minutes later the appetizer arrived. I wanted halibut plain, no salt and no seasoning on the fish or my vegetables. I couldn’t eat any of my dinner, it was so salty. Don’t waste your money going here. Try The Kitchen at the Sunriver Resort. It’s in the lobby. Better service, servers listen attentively and food it great.

    South Bend BistroResponded on June 20, 2022Hi there, I have reached out to you for more clarification. We are located in a very woodsy area and when doors are open, nature can come in. It is just starting to warm up enough for us to see these pesky things and have taken quick action to deal with them. I am so sorry you felt rushed. We are training summer staff, so I will go over that with them. I will also go over the other issues with her as well. This is not a normal dining experience with us and I hope you will give us another chance.

    My favorite dish has always been the scallops. I did not like them. Unable to finish the dish. I do have to say the other two people enjoyed their dinner. I didn't appreciate the paper on the table when we sat down that said our table would be needed by 6:45pm. (So hurry up).

    South Bend BistroResponded on June 20, 2022Hi Mark, I am so sorry you did not enjoy the scallops. We have not changed the dish so I am not sure why you did not enjoy them this time. Because we take reservations, we have had issues with guests staying for large chunks of time, understandably. However, that leaves the next reservation waiting at the door. So we are seeming to have folks upset at both ends and are trying to find a non "hurry up" way to clarify that the table will be seated again at a certain time.

    We had a nice time with our daughter her husband and our granddaughter. The hostess and bussers stood out above the rest. The very slender girl and the brunette girl with braces. Very sweet and accommodating. Food and presentation was on point. Sat outside. Not the most upscale but I know their deck was closed/getting stained and the much nicer outside setting. We would definitely come back.
