One of only several restaurants that were open Christmas eve, we arrived to a festive and warm welcome from the wait staff. Linda could be seen through an opening at the back of the table area hard at her craft. A full pour of wine was more than adequate for the dinner which was delicious. The salads were perfect in...

My husband and I both enjoy Linda's Bistro. The setting is charming, the waitstaff is very pleasant and professional (often remembering our preferences from previous evenings) and the food delicious. We have never been disappointed. Linda always takes the time to come out and thank us for our patronage, and while she is not an effusive person, she is sincere... More

Extremely courteous and helpful waitstaff complements a varied menu.Two in our party had the scallops special that was served with carrots and green beans. An accompaniment that was a first for me.

Attended the recent 5 course wine dinner. The food was exceptional and wine pairing wonderful. Ended up picking up some fantastic wines at greT prices. Met the high standards I've come to expect at Linda's Bistro.

Rarely do I take the trouble of reviewing anything, let alone restaurants, but for Linda's Bistro I had to make an exception. On recommendation (this person must have terrible taste) I went to this restaurant with my elderly mother who was very excited about dining there. The restaurant is cute, a cottage/personal home, with the owner, Linda, acting as chef.... More

There is a fine quality to this place. The dining room is welcoming and tidy; the feeling is one of sports. Horse pictures - racing and others hang on the wall. A lovely stuffed bird flies over the bar. It is very tasteful inside. And the meals are tasteful too. Prepared individually by the chef and owner, the food is... More

My wife liked her steak very much (we both shared leftovers); I had a fish special that was OK but rather badly overpriced. Linda's years ago seemed like it was generally at the top end price-wise for the area, but is mostly competitive now with the better restaurants around, though not cheap.

Wonderful tasty food, coversation friendly atmosphere make this a great restaurant for a liesurely meal. Really enjoy the baby beef calve's liver, not a lot of restaurants carry this item! Salads are huge; easy to split across the 4 of us. Good wine selection reasonably priced.

Linda's Bistro is a small, quietly elegant restaurant thoughtfully decorated to reflect an "Aiken" ambiance.The service is professional and hospitable yet unobtrusive. Linda herself watches over her clientele carefully and her staff has been with her a long time, making for a seamless experience. The only criticism is the restricted, slightly expensive wine list.

Whenever we visit Aiken, we always make a point to stop at Linda's. The food is delicious and Linda is a hoot.
