It's a gem!

Delicious food, great atmosphere, wonderful service. Reservations are recommended. Chef James is an amazing chef and very creative. If you like to try traditional foods with a creative spin, you'll love Owen's Bistro.

We celebrated our five year anniversary at Owen's bistro on a Friday night at 7 PM. We made reservations earlier in the week and it wasn't very crowded when we got there. Sat on the patio as most people do, it was very nice and they had string lights that lit up to create great ambience once it got dark.... More

the service was prompt and upon arriving very nice experience. Small restaurant family owned serving excellent meals. Food is American but higher end. Think of a French Bistro in America. Note: Desserts are nice but not a large selection. Parking is plentiful. Need to make reservations in advance to guarantee table Friday-Sunday.I would go back again

Definitely best dinning experience in Chino. The food was delicious and the ambiance was perfect. Please be aware space is limited so make reservations or be prepared to wait. Can't wait to go back.

This is a small and quaint restaurant with the most amazing food. The food is not only wonderful, but the presentation is remarkable. Weekends have a guitarist and this is so nice. I have and would recommend this to anyone who like intimate dining with wonderful food choices that you cannot just get anywhere. It is a little pricey but... More

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

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
