Possibly one of the very best restaurants I’ve ever had the pleasure to visit. Very delicious food and a delightful staff. It was our 42nd anniversary and they surprised us with a delightful dessert on the house. I wish we lived closer, I would make it a regular visit. I recommend the Bistro without reservations.

The Bistro was amazing! My wife and I came here for our 10 year anniversary and we were not disappointed. Everything was 5 stars - the food, the drinks, the desserts, the service, everything. The only disappointment I have is that we live so far away from this gem. Will definitely be back, HIGHLY recommend!

Our server, Rebecca, was very pleasant and helpful when making food recommendations. I highly recommend the meatball appetizer and the chicken piccata. The meatballs were homemade with excellent flavor - just melted in your mouth. The chicken piccata was steaming hot when it came to the table - just delicious! I'd also recommend the Dolce Sera white wine. The service was excellent. I'd highly recommend making reservations, since there were hardly any open tables after my friend and I arrived there. I will most definitely be returning to the Bistro soon!

Great Service, great food and nice touches. It was our anniversary and we got a great table and a personalized dessert at the end of the night. We started with drinks at the Still House, and then had dinner at the Bistro. Great night at our favorite restaurant.

The marinated pork chop was terrific. The blackened salmon was pretty anemic for a blackened item. The veggies were unusual and very tasty.The wine selection was excellent and matched the food well.

We had a great meal at The Bistro, in addition to, celebrating our 40th Anniversary! Our meals of pasta bolognese and chicken Italiano were very good. The walnut salad was excellent, too. Our waiter, Dirk, surprised us with an Anniversary decorated dish of vanilla ice cream with white chocolate covered cherries! It was a very special dinner and The Bistro made it possible. Thank you!

Dan was a knowledgeable efficient waiter. The building is beautiful. We loved the pear salad. Our mussel were a bit gritty but tasted good. My husbands short ribs were excellent. I had the chicken piccata and while tasty I have had better elsewhere. The chicken was a little overdone. We were celebrating our 50th anniversary that was postponed from last year so they brought us a lovely gelato and white chocolate covered cherry desert. We would be happy to return again.

We always enjoy dining at the Bistro when visiting Ohio — and especially when staying overnight on site in the relaxing Casas. Our dinner was simply delicious. A caesar salad that is invitingly presented and brightly dressed; A perfect rendition of chicken piccata with truly light angel hair pasta, and a pasta offering with delicious plump scallops and shrimp- neither overcooked as so often happens. Server was knowledgeable, pleasant and efficient, cheerfully responding to our few special requests (dressing on the side; please add peperoncini to seafood pasta). Ambiance is lovely and felt spacious with its barn high ceiling and widely spaced tables — at least on the main floor.

I never leave bad reviews but from the beginning this went south for us. I made this reservation for my husband’s birthday. When we got there they sat us at a round table for eight so it was awkward for the two of us. The server told us about the special which was $44 and I asked them to make it not spicy but when it came it was almost inedible it was so spicy. My husband asked for butter for the bread and they brought a gravy boat filled with margarine (no butter?!) We ordered dessert and it was gelato but came in a frozen state and was also hard to eat. Even though we had told them it was a birthday celebration on the reservation and also when we got there, they totally forgot about my husband’s birthday. We had to remind them. This meal ruined our day. You have to get something right.
