After a well received beginning in the Lake Chelan Valley, the Bistro now moves downtown to even better serve our guests.We are now open with new inspired food, expanded drinks and wine program, and the warm, caring service we have always provided. We look forward to introducing guests to our new fully refitted commercial kitchen, all new seating and décor, and our improved and expanded outdoor seating spaces, the largest in the downtown area.

We were visiting in town and looking for a place to eat. Used the Open Table app to find a place and booked the reservation thinking we were going to be eating outside as most places are during these times. The place was closed with no notice of closure even after reservation was confirmed. If the place is closed, should not be available to book and if booked we should have been notified if they were going to close.

Bistro Salad and entrees--crab cakes and wild mushroom cavatappi--are excellent. Ambience is relaxed and comfortable.

Food was delicious, atmosphere was relaxed, loved the background music and the decor was beautiful. Small little restaurant so definitely reserve as seating was limited to keep social distancing.

Dinner was nice, wine was local and very tasty. Space was small and felt a little cramped. Mushroom pasta was incredible, I cleared my plate. Mr husbands pot pie dish was lacking, had a bitter after taste. Everything else was great.

I've eaten at The Bistro an embarassing mount of times since they reopened in Chelan, and every single time it has all been impeccable. Get your butt to brunch on Sunday for chicken and waffles and mimosas.

We had never eaten at The Bistro and had reservations for a winemakers dinner at a local winery. Due to unforeseen circumstances the winemakers dinner was cancelled. Though the menu appears to offer casual choices don’t be fooled. Our dinner was exceptional. We started with the tomato bisque. My husband had the crab cakes with bistro salad and I had the wild mushroom dish. All was exceptional and piping hot, which was nice because the evening was cold. We had stellar service on top of great food. We will definitely be back!

We were a party of 4, trying the chicken pot pie, it was delicious, others loved the pasta and one of us tried the steak frites which was very good, we enjoyed all of this with local wines and had no room for dessert

The quality and the consistancy is what drives The Bistro at Lake Chelan not to mention the excellent service. The moment you step inside takes you to a place of warmth and comfort. The color coordination and decor makes me feel like I am about to partake of handcrafted drinks and food. I will keep returning to my favorite spot. Once a week is just about right.

They have done a beautiful job redecorating what used to be The Fox and Quail. Inside and out! The food is delicious. I had the mushroom cavatappi and the husband had the bistro burger. Both SO good! We shared the flourless chocolate cake for dessert. We practically had to be rolled to our car, we were feeling so fat and happy. 😁 Reason for four stars for value is the price of cocktails, those are quite dear... We will be back again, and again, and again...

Second time I've eaten at The Bistro; love the food. The service was a bit slow. The noise on the road side is very loud (likely not much that can be done about that). We moved to the front courtyard (much better). Will definitely return!

Wonderful ambience, seated upon arrival, courteous staff. Well thought out menu, a variety of options but not so many that you feel overwhelmed. Our meal, from excellent service to Instagram worthy dishes, was excellent. We truly enjoyed our experience.
