Really nice downtown restaurant

I met a client there on a slow Monday nite. The service was great, relaxed and friendly. The small bar is well stocked and the atmosphere is really cool. Food was really good, prepared well and presented nicely. Price was fair for the quality of food. I'll go back next chance I get.

We love Athens for many reasons and one of the reasons is that there are so many culinary delights here (and we don't mean the chain restaurants). The East-West Bistro has been around for years and we've always enjoyed it, especially their Thai Chicken Soup. Today was a beautiful day and we sat at the window as others enjoyed their... More

Classic Italian/American dishes, thin crust pizza, pasta, etc. in a very nice atmosphere. Great lunch prices.

This restaurant is a good choice for location (on Broad), good food and service. Nice tall ceilings and lower but not dim lighting. Full bar. Although they were out of the sushi I ordered, pretty full offering on their menu. If you're not in the mood to go finer dining (like Nona's) but still want some flavor of upscale, this... More

We rented out the upstairs for a dinner before a sorority formal event. The space catered nicely to our large group (40+) and the set menu was delicious. The owner was wonderful and gave us a few free appetizers and bottles of wine. It was a positive experience and I would love to do it again.

We really enjoyed our trip to East West. It was a Tuesday night so it was a little slow after the happy hour crowd (maybe a work get together) left. You could feel the vibe deflate a little because it is a big space. Nice simple decor, typical downtown Athens layout with a bar up front and long and deep... More

East West Bistro is by far my favorite place to eat in Athens. I absolutely love the sweet potato chips and the salmon. I went here for the majority of special occasions when I was living in Athens and it is one of the places I miss the most!

Nice vibe, low key. Pretty much in par for downtown places in Athens. We just had drinks and service was great. I would go back

East West Bistro is a very good restaurant. The staff is super nice and efficient. The food is outstanding. We were there after a UGA game and even though the restaurant was crowded you would have never known it. We were not rushed and they held our table until all arrived.
