    Where to start? We have been wanting to try this place for awhile, and finally got the chance and wished we had tried it sooner. We’ve pretty much never eaten a bad meal in Natchez, and this one did not disappoint at all. The salmon piccata and the NY strip were incredible, cocktails made perfectly, and we were too full for dessert (biggest regret). Our server was the sweetest and the freshness of the food was perfection.

    Always a wonderful meal and fantastic service. Went with my daughter (almost 8) and mother in law for my birthday brunch and they were so sweet and accommodating to my daughter. They even brought her a bowl of ice cream when they served my free birthday dessert. (Get the Bananas Foster, TRUST me). And you can't go wrong with bottomless mimosas. Manager came and checked on our table and chatted a bit, and our server was very attentive.

    Good service. Great cocktails & wine. Loved the spring rolls and shrimp cocktail. Our entrees ( steak & shrimp pasta ) were large portion. Piano bar was nice. We had to sit away from the piano because the music is a little loud for my husbands hearing aid. But I would return again. We were from out of town.

    Shared our 10th anniversary with The Kitchen Bistro and Piano Bar and really enjoyed our meal and the ambiance. It’s a quaint little place with great food and a good wine selection. The ribeye was very flavorful and my wife enjoyed the Mahi. They make some of the best bananas fosters I’ve had.

    Our first time dining here. Very pleasant experience. Started with a cocktail. Wife had a pineapple margarita. She really loved the flavors. Next was the spring rolls and deviled eggs. She ate all the eggs before I could try one. Must have been great. The spring rolls were very food and crunchy. The dipping sauce was delish. Next we dined on shrimp and pasta and chicken and pasta. Both were great. The wife finished up with bananas foster. We had a great bottle of Franciscan Chardonnay. Always good. We will return on our next trip to Natchez.

    Quite place, but caters to local older crowd in my opinion. I say this because our order was put in for a local table of 4 and they got the main course before us and right after their appetizer. Our deviled eggs flight appetizer were good and unique. The time between appetizer and main course was really long. When I got my mahi and shrimp they were cold and over cooked. My husband’s salmon was over cooked as well, but his pasta was hot. Drinks and serves were really good, but I so surprised for all the seafood on the menu the fish and shrimp were over cooked.

    Very nice restaurant and great atmosphere, however service was super slow. Waited a while to be seated at a table due to no hosted at the stand. Once finally seated sat there 15-20 mins before a server finally approached us. By that time we were already getting up to go to another restaurant. I would give it a shot again but service def needs much improvement!

    We always enjoy the fresh fish special when we dine here monthly. And the homemade blueberry cheesecake was heavenly! Please know that your meal will take an hour or so, as the chefs lovingly prepare each meal with intent and precision. Sit back, relax, have conversation, listen to the piano player and enJOY a truly memorable meal.

    We so enjoyed our dinner at The Kitchen Bistro! The setting is wonderful with live piano music, elegant decor and a view of the kitchen where the food is prepared. Our server was attentive and made great suggestions. The menu was a delight and there were so many interesting choices, it was hard to choose only a few. We really enjoyed the tuna nachos for an appetizer. The shrimp and grits were amazing and my spouse loved the mahi mahi entree. We will be back!

    Our server was most excellent, reaccommodating our seating for our handicapped mom on Mothers Day, even though they were at capacity. Brunch selections were excellent. The steak was tender and flavorful. Seared salmon and shrimp piccata were perfect. Shrimp pasta was delicious. We shared the stuffed eggs and each one was delectable; one topped with bacon and honey,one topped with caviar and one with smoked salmon.

    Excellent ambiance, service and cocktails. Our appetizers, the deviled egg flight and tuna nachos, were outstanding. We should’ve skipped the entrees and order more appetizers. The entrees took almost an hour to come out of the kitchen and they were a totally different experience from the apps. My husband orders the ribeye and he got a crazy plate of thinly sliced ribeye and Brussels sprouts halves with some potatoes. Not visually appealing and for $45 definitely overpriced. My Mahi Mahi was dry and bland, on top of barely cooked and not seasoned sugar snap pease. But the piano player was great and we enjoyed the night.

    Food Fantastic! Environment Terrible! All because the owner was not willing to tell the piano player that he was driving customers away. It was so loud that one was not able to hear those sitting at the same table. The room with the piano is just TOO SMALL for even normal piano use. The piano player, I guess, is deaf. While there I observed ten (10) people come in to eat, and then within five minutes of being seated, got up and left the restaurant. I predict that this restaurant, like four others in Natchez, will fail. Sad!

    Food was really exceptional. So Disappointing that the restaurant did not have any bubbly or Sauvignon Blanc by the glass, even though it was on the drink menu. Who runs out of white wine or sparkling? Stock extra bottles or offer a substitute! Our Dinners took a long time to deliver, but they were great.

    We were notified 2.5 hours before our dinner reservation that the restaurant would only be serving small plates and drinks as apparently they suddenly decided to provide food for the Michael Jackson concert that night. At that point, on Saint Patrick’s Day, there was no way to make other arrangements for another restaurant. We had reservations made far in advance for dinner while visiting Natchez on a semi-annual trip we make regularly. Looking forward to great food, our favorite server, and Alvin on the piano. Their poor planning ruined our last night in town, and honestly, we aren’t sure we will bother coming back if we can’t depend on plans made here.

    Love the attention to detail on the special orders we put into the kitchen. The chef's modified creations were perfect for our special diet needs. The atmosphere was lovely for a Sunday morning brunch. Very comfortable and relaxing. The band, Mississippi Roux, was such a wonderful accompaniment to the brunch. My only regret is that we were on a diet and abstaining from the amazing libations available in the bar. We will be back after lent to fully take advantage of the full menu.

    Our waitress and food was great!!! It was our first experience with the restaurant and all the things she had recommended it was 100% accurate!!! And as far as the food goes, I’ve always had a distaste for Brussels and the same for my wife with steak. But that night I found myself eating the Brussels along with my wife eating pieces and pieces of steak!!!
