Great first time experience! My husband had the trout and I had the butternut squash ravioli. Both were very good, but the trout was just outstanding and arrived nice and hot. Our waiter was excellent...hate that I’m not sure of his name, but I think it was Daniel. He did a great job! We’ll dine here again.
Our first time there since we moved into the neighborhood. It will become a regular place for us.
Really great time, and great meal.
The food is delicious and the service is great. BUT, some aspects of the servings were not great. I ordered pancakes with granola and vanilla yogurt. The pancakes were very good but there was perhaps one tablespoon of granola and a similar amount of the yogurt. For the price, the portions should have been bigger.
Hate an enjoyable meal in this great little neighborhood place tucked away in a shopping center. Locals will remember this as the former Nancy G's reincarnated from more of a luncheon place to an upscale restaurant. Shrimp and grits were awesome. Passed on dessert when they offered nothing gluten free. Even better, Wed night's offers 1/2 price bottles of wine. This restaurant will be on our regular rotation!
My neighborhood favorite. Menu with just enough pizazz to stay interesting, but down-to-earth and accessible food.
So happy we came across this adorable restaurant! The food was delicious and the staff was incredibly nice! Can't wait to go back and become regulars.
Always a pleasure to dine at Southern Bistro. We are never disappointed.
This dinner visit was our second, this time with out-of-town guests. We were very pleased the first time and even more so the second time. The food selection and service are outstanding. The owner takes an active role in welcoming guests and providing hospitality, which is much appreciated. We definitely will be returning for a third time!
Our waitress (Saturday, November 3) was attentive, punctual & professional. I believe her name is Kelsey. She came to our table of eight promptly, gave us time to catch up, attented to our drinks and made sure everybody was satisfied with the special weekend dinner selections (some folks were delighted to know a 3-course dinner could be shared!). Thanks for that (we don’t eat as much as we used to - HA,HA). Please thank Kelsey for her excellent t service! We will be back 😁
The restaurant seems very nice. Soft music in background, low noise level, clean, big windows, pleasant decor, plus the food was hot and tasty. The coffee was quite good and it was also hot and fresh. Our waitress was either inexperienced or maybe not well-trained? She forgot several things and took a long time to bring others. I gave her payment for my meal and money for a tip, and she took it and kept it without double-checking if I’d meant her to bring change, which is always an appropriate question. I’d definitely try it again in hopes of getting a better server because the food and ambiance are worth another try.
Great neighborhood gem with a local crowd. JD at the bar and Nancy and Coleman hosting as if your dining at their house. Eat here at least twice a month, best local eatery - consistent food, good value and great people.
Enjoyed meal! Friends enjoyed too. Good selection - nice location.
This was our 1 year anniversary dinner before the concert.
My husband and I love this Bistro! We recently went for a wine pairing dinner, and despite arriving late, we were treated to the wine tastings at our own table! The service is outstanding, and the owners aim to please.
always dependable good food and friendly attentive service
Recently had lunch here—everythjng was just really, really good from food to service. We will be back—what a great find in our neighborhood!
The food was amazing and the service was top-notch!! I want to go back this weekend!
Southern Bistro had very tasty food and great atmosphere. Will definitely be back!
Ou favorite place. It’s a gem. Service and food always impeccable
Good food & atmosphere where you can actually hear your dining companion. The only downside for our party was that the server was nowhere to be found after serving our meal.
Love this place. The service and food were impeccable. The fried green tomatoes were out of this world!
We love Southern Bistro for its friendliness, great food items and happy servers and guests.
Enjoyed the salmon, shrimp & grits, and the burger. Asparagus cooked to my liking - not too crunchy. Full house the Saturday nite we were there, but not too noisy, able to converse without yelling. Surprised that the place hasn't changed even with the new name. Nice to know...
Service needs some help. Some things are better than others on the menu, but mostly consistent.
Great place for a family. Neighborhood restaurant.
Our absolute favorite place. Outstanding drinks, food, service and atmosphere! It’s also a great spot for hosting meetings and get-togethers. Everyone is very accommodating. Food is great! Great bar!
dinner was good and the folks next to me were RAVING about their burger....I am not a beef eater but thought I'd share.
This place has become our tradition for Sunday brunch,
Nancy (owner) has done a great job on keeping an interesting menu and great kitchen staff for the last 7 or 8 years. Not cheap but we’ll worth the price.
Always a fun place to eat. Great service, good food!!!
Food and service were excellent. Love the ambiance. Our favorite dining spot!
We love to come for brunch on the weekend and sit outside with our dogs. We enjoy dinner with friends as well! The food is delicious and not pretentious. The noise level allows easy conversation among friends! Great place!!
This has quickly become one of our favorite restaurants! The food is delicious and the staff is so friendly and attentive.
Always a great place for any occasion. We are never disappointed.
I had lunch with a friend from out of town. We enjoyed our lunch. The menu had a lot of nice choices. The atmosphere was friendly and welcoming. My friend was disappointed that when she asked for two tea bags so she could mix the flavors, the waiter told her that she would be charged twice.
Adorable local restaurant in a popular area! Love the patio. They have a large menu and you got the feeling “everyone knows your name.” The food is average. We will give it another try!
Our favorite dining spot for any occasion.
We have never been disappointed.
Great atmosphere. Happy people.
Outstanding on all fronts! And Nancy G epitomizes customer service and the power of building relationships with her guests!
Our service was wonderful. We were attending a concert at CHASTAIN and our waitress was awesome. Thank you!
We love Friday night dinner at Southern Bistro! That is seafood night and I cannot get enough of their Georgia Trout. Fabulous!
