Quaint with great food

My daughter and I were there for my birthday celebration. I had Wild mushroom ravioli my daughter had grilled chicken panini with pasta. My daughter usually does not like chicken but she ate almost all of her entree. My daughter said the chicken had a very good taste and was very moist. We also... read more

On a recent visit to Aiken we had dinner at Linda's on a Friday evening. Our meals were cooked perfectly. I had the Sea Bass and my wife had a pasta dish with shrimp. The seafood was fresh as were the vegetables. The rolls were right out of the oven. Our waiter was very nice as well. The atmosphere was... More

We dined here during a visit to Aiken and frankly thought it was a bit over-rated. We called for a 6:30 dinner reservation and was asked if we could do 6:15 to which we agreed. Upon arrival, the place was empty and remained so well into our meal. And upon our departure, there were only 3 other tables occupied. Our... More

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

First time visit with a friend of the family. Based on our experience, will definitely return.!!! On first blush, the ambience makes one feel right at home. 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. Totally... More

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.
