We have enjoyed many meals at the Brown Hound Bistro- both brunch and dinner, as a couple and as a family. Highly recommended are the Beef Wellington and seafood bisque. There are plenty of choices for brunch and Finger Lakes Coffee roaster's Jamaican Me Crazy as the perfect accompaniment. The atmosphere is quaint and relaxed, with local artists paintings and...

We ate outside, listening to live acoustic guitar music, enjoying incredible combinations of local fare. We started with an excellent soup of kale in a tomato base. For the main course the chef paired local vegetables with various meats, and he did offer a vegetarian option as well. We can vouch for the beef Wellington, beef tenderloin, pork loin, and... More

We stopped here for Sunday brunch on our way out of town after a long weekend in the area. This is an adorable stop with a delicious menu. We received excellent service from the mother-daughter team. The coffee (a local from the region) was delicious and I really enjoyed the smoked salmon plate. Everything was fresh and prepared with care.... More

We have been very upset about losing many of our favorite romantic dining spots over recent years, but finding the Brown Hound Bistro has made us feel much better again. Quaint, romantic, and amazing food, this is a unique place worth taking a visit to. The staff is great and helpful and there is a nice variety of unusual food... More

We decided to hold our wedding dinner at Brown Hound Bistro. From the moment we started communicating with Trish and the entire staff, things flowed effortlessly. We came up with a menu that served the various tastes in our family while also using in season fruits and vegetables and local wines. Throughout the entire process, we were given the chance... More

Brown Hound has always been a favorite of mine, the food is always incredibly fresh and full of flavor, but the staff went above and beyond for Mother's Day Brunch. My family is very difficult to please, with some members loving the unique items the Brown Hound is known for and other wanting the classic eggs and bacon. In order... More

I had driven past this place many times while traveling through the Naples Valley and said to myself I should check it out. Well I am so glad I finally did! My date and I enjoyed a very romantic table in a small nook near the front of the restaurant. The decor is pleasantly rustic with creative use of found... More

We were out for a drive one weekend when we passed the visitor. Remembering a recommendation from a friend we pulled in. Although they weren't opening for another 15 minutes they invited us in. We had a drink and ordered their beef Wellington and it immediately became our favorite restaurant. G

I'm tough to please, and I gave it a rating of 5 across the board. Food, ambiance, staff, all amazing. This was our first time there, and only second time out in 14 months since becoming parents of twins. I can't wait to bring clients of mine there! You have clients for life! Thank you so much for the quality... More
