    We easily had made reservations online. Upon arrival, the Bistro was ready for us and gave us a table with a window. Barb, our server, was spot-on time with water and asking for drink order. She was ready in taking orders and accommodated special requests. Meals were served within adequate time and Barb checked back with us with a smile a few times. The atmosphere was generally quiet and very peaceful. All in all it was more than worth it to drive the hour from our house to The Bistro. We do this for our special occasions because they are consistent with delicious foods wonderfully prepared; and because of the people there that serve us so graciously. Thank you Bistro and Barb!

    The food was great, the staff was super nice and the service was timely. They told us when we arrived that the next reservation for our table was an hour and a half away which was nice because it let us know how much time we had, but didn’t make us feel rushed at all. The prices were comparable to other breakfast joints and all in all it was a nice experience for my wife and I.

    I’ve been here for brunch and that’s what made me want to come back. Even with the same friend the first time. Wow was lunch a disappointment, the French dips sat so long in bag they were soggy and and the juice from the meat became gelatinous. It was gross to look at! I tried scraping it off but it just made you want to gag! I just didn’t finish it.

    We picked this restaurant for a friend’s reunion because of it time tested quality, service and ambience. As always, they did not disappoint. We enjoyed the French onion soup, turkey reuben, crab melt and cauliflower tacos. They were all a home run. One in our party had not been at the Bistro before. She reached out to her family to spread the word on this gem!
