What a pleasant surprise to be invited to experience Owen's Bistro. A business client did the honors and so a first-ever stop in Chino resulted in one of the best meals we've enjoyed in recent history (echoed by every member in our group of 5). From the evening's soup (7 pepper - obviously popular, as 3 of us ordered it... More

Wonderful ambience inside w/ high ceilings & brick which was nice on an uncharacteristic cool Ca night - outside seating appeared comfortable w/ plenty of outdoor heaters in full dining area. Food was to rave for from crispy fried Brussels sprouts & beet home fries as appetizers - soup of day was a kale & black bean combination - great.... More

My husband and I visit here about once a year (it's a bit pricey-about $90+ for two people) for special occasions and it is always delicious! This year was just as wonderful. I love the patio with it's romantic setting and the service is always special. The food is always changing and the chef is amazing. This is a wonderful... More

On entry greeting was nice but followed by what felt like digs from smiling hostess. (10/3 8pm reservation) ( was this wife of chef? Wore black dress with cork heels blond hair). Weren't seated until 8:25. Soup brought out 15 min after order. Meal not served until 45 min after soup. I had to inquire about meal. Seemed excess waiters... More

I had the absolutely MOST fantastic medallions of filet mignon at Owen's Bistro! My daughters took me there for a late birthday celebration and let's just say that it was definitely worth the wait!! The rack of lamb was amazing, as were the stuffed peppers... And don't even get me started on the desserts... Danny was an outstanding server, and... More

Wanting to take my best friend for 20 years and his wife to dinner we chose Owens based on our past experiences there. We were greeted warmly with a smile and immediately seated at a pre decorated birthday table (perfect!). We ordered appetizers and dinner which was delicious and fresh, just as good as our previous visit there. The chef/owner... More

We checked our credit card statement and found that Owen's had overcharged us by $63 AFTER the bill was signed.

This little restaurant could be great. The seating is horrible, with the tables in a covered outdoor patio, so close together you feel like you are sitting with the couple next to you. The service is very slow, but the food is good. We have tried it twice, and unfortunately, the same situation both times.

When I think 5 star, I don't picture downtown Chino, but the amazing food, terrific service, great atmosphere and owners that really care about the food and experience you receive when you go to Owen's make it an amazing place to spend an evening. We were there for NYE, and had a great time. If you haven't been there, do... More

We took another couple to Owen's and the service was great. The food was all very good. Don't go here is you want a semi-fast food experience (i.e.,- Chilis, Applebees, Outback). If you are serious about spending some time with great friends in an unhurried atmosphere, this is the best choice. Great wine list and food prepared in a thoughtful... More
