Fabulous!! If you are a foodie, this place should be your first stop!! Divine…
This is the best restaurant in town - a delight for all the senses. Elegant, beautiful and DELICIOUS!!!! It will be sorely missed in the valley ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Can’t say enough good things about this place! Amazing food,
amazing “house” wine selection (Succession) and overall a great place to have a meal. Super Cozy! Adorable decorations and cozy patio.
Must try’s: their house made lavender butter (phenomenal) - comes with the Baguette & they have an amazing burger
The Bistro is always a lovely place to dine. The romantic charm and ambience is great. Service can be a tad slow but understandable given the small staff so be aware and you won't be disappointed. The food is good and some meals were even great! The Bistro Burger is always good and one of our party had the steak salad and absolutely loved it. I had the Croque monsieur and the taste was great but a bit dry. I thought the salad Verti was awesome though so it made up for it! All in all, a good choice for Chelan.
Amazing food and atmosphere
We love this little gem in DT Chelan. Charming and delicious.
Excellent food and service! The drinks were very strong, but overall we had a great time!
Limited menu. Waitstaff courteous and friendly. Open table experience online isn’t the best. Food wasn’t up to the price paid.
We had the crab cakes and tuna for our entree and can’t sY enough about the flavors. The burrata is a must appetizer!!
Food was wonderful and the service was fabulous!
First time here, place was recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed.
Excellent friendly staff! Great cocktails and food. A must stop when visiting Chelan.
Decent. Service was eh. Small table felt cramped. Servers didn’t know what was on the menu.
Delicious food in a lovely courtyard . Not a large menu but what they offer is very good.
-good basic food. Delicious salads especially Cesaer!
-great and friendly service from Tessa
-typical pricing for Lake Chelan ($19 for burgers, $30 for fish dish, etc)
-need more wine selections especially being in wine country. Don't serve California wines. Serve our local wines especially Chardonnay like Karma, Fielding Hills, etc...
-too many chicken dishes... I think there were like 4... include a salmon dish especially when they are running!
-lots of noise outside - many cars and motorcycles. Maybe put some tall plants to hide the street
-move the 2 seater tables from the entry way- any idea is to move waiting area in the middle vs putting diners close to hostess stand....
First time and really enjoyed. One of the better ones for Lake Chelan!!
We had a wonderful dinner at the Bistro! Food and drinks were delicious and service was excellent! Can’t wait to come back
Really amazing food, have been there for diner and brunch.
Great steak frites and the salad verte was outstanding
Always a great choice while in Chelan. Yummy food and drinks with great service too.
Such a great restaurant! We were in from the east coast and had trouble finding restaurants in the area. A booking became available and we jumped on it! Pleasantly surprised by the entire experience. Great service, amazing food, and the ambiance was everything we wanted for a quieter evening out. Can’t wait to go back when we visit the area again!
All entrées except mine were delicious. I had the Catalan Ed Cavaletti and it was Very different spices than I was experiencing from Italy. Valencia style is garlic onion tomato base and this one was a totally different spices. I was disappointed that it didn’t go well with the red wine that I brought for the meal. However, five out of six entrées were wonderful and the service was great.
We serve a dish called Catalan Cavatappi, we are assuming this is what you are referring to. This is not a dish from, or inspired by Italy or Valencia as you mentioned in your post, rather it is from Spain. We also cannot well match our menu items to wine that is brought from outside the restaurant as we do not know anything about it or its condition. We do appreciate your visit.
Sat outside, great food as always, relaxed atmosphere
Fine dining at its best, well thought out simple menu allowing quality over complexity plenty of choices. Ingredients merged perfect not overpowering each other, staff prompt and knowledgeable truly a destination not to miss
The bistro is the best restaurant in all of Chelan county no doubt. It is a rare gem. The food and service and drinks are all outstanding and the value is exceptional. We went to brunch and had the chicken and waffles, breakfast sandwhich, and chicken club. All fresh and tasty. We had mimosa pitchers as well, so fun! We highly recommend both for every day dining and special occasions.
Crab cakes are great on their brunch menu! Their food, drinks and service are on the best list in Chelan in my book. We are scheduled again for next Sunday! :)
We were warmly greeted by the staff and ordered their crab cakes eggs benedict and their chicken and waffles and both were absolutely divine! The owners are lovely and welcoming and the atmosphere and little design and service details make this a special spot we will recommend to others and come back to again!
We had brunch at the Bistro. Excellent French pressed coffee. Try the Brioche French Toast. Really good. My wife loved the Crab Cake Benedict and the outdoor patio was very nice. Great weather for us!! Very nice setting for Sunday brunch!!
First time dining here-live locally. It’s difficult to be critical of service during this time and small businesses are struggling. However, it doesn’t take a second to stop and say hello and to let a table know that they are coming. Server was definitely kind-but clearly overworked. Not entirely certain what the hostess did all evening-she should have been refilling all of the empty water bottles around us. We sat for 15 minutes with no one saying hello, no water etc. Finally brought a bottle of water for four that was small and gone in a minute. We waited all night for everything-asked for more water no less than 5x. Ordered one cocktail-would have loved another but never had the opportunity to order again and didn’t want to wait forever for it. Good news: cocktails were delicious, and all of our entrees were hot and delicious as well. We will definitely try again and hope for a tiny bit more attentiveness.
Service and food were great. Sat outside, weather was perfect.
The food was incredible and the cocktails were pretty good. The hostess was not at all welcoming and the server was very slow to bring the check even after asking several times. I didn’t care for one of the cocktails (super sugary) and they never came to check and see how things were. Probably won’t go back.
Best in Chelan. We are locals, have been to all the dining options. Bistro is the best.
Nice environment, great staff, and the best food in Chelan..
Their drink options are great, and skillfully mixed.
A greatly enjoyable experience.
Excellent food and service! Can’t wait to go back!
Best hamburger I've ever had. I usually will not order a hamburger from any restaurant, because I am very partial to my husband's. But this was very good!
Our food could have been warmer, but we do understand they are short staffed so it is tough to get food out right away.
Very windy and hot outside and the umbrellas kept blowing over. Server didn’t check on us often, had to go into to get her to pay but food was ok.
We were a party of 4 having breakfast. I person in our group needed gluten free options but the only thing they offered was a salad. However, our waitress spoke with the chef and they were quickly able to accommodate us by offering an option not listed on the menu. Staff was pleasant and attentive. We had a very enjoyable 1st experience and are looking forward to trying the dinner menu on our next visit
Book in advance and enjoy! Food was lovely and service excellent.
Pretty good food. Those that ordered the steak were happy. I got the poulet frit and it was good, but the prosciutto was a little over cooked and had a burnt taste.
Overall, great dinner and service was spectacular.
Loved this place ! Everything inside was nice and clean. Fresh flowers on the tables made the place smell beautiful ! My friends and I sat inside, we liked that there weren’t so many tables inside so nobody was yelling to have a conversation.
I highly recommend you try the baguette as an appetizer. Super warm and crispy from the outside. The butter is crazy good. I believe it had a hint of lavender and rosemary.
All three meals we ordered were exceptional. Beef burger was cooked well, chicken was moist, and the pasta didn’t disappoint.
I have nothing to complain about this place. Definitely worth my money and time!
Fantastic evening. We have been several times The food is always amazing flavors and the staff is like dining with friends.
Great place will be back again aoo!
