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

Eating at Owen's Bistro was a scrumptious experience. You can tell that the owner/chef is passionate about delivering an amazing food experience...which he did. They are excellent at wine pairing.

Food was good. Too bad the wife of the owner/hostess racial profiles. We were questioning the bill that we did not understand and she said, "I knew you guys were going to do this to me the second you walked in those doors and I prayed for you." Excuse me? Was it because we are Asian? Never have we felt... More

We have a great cozy restaurant in our own town. Great creative food made with local ingredients served to you by a warm staff that freely shares favorites. They have a lot of tastings and even offer cooking classes. What a great find. Can't wait to take friends and family there.

It is recommended to make reservations, which we did. We walked in without a wait to a quaint room filled with music from an acoustic guitar. The ambiance was wonderful. The food was outstanding. The service was certainly lacking. I did see at the tables next to ours that food was given to wrong table several times. We had theater... More

I agree with the previous post - great food, poor service. We waited outside 15 mins. for our reservations, The service was very slow. Seemed like only the owner was taking orders. The servers were consistently wrong with which plate went to which diner. My short ribs were delicious - not greasy as they can be. The pork was good,... More

I recently had an opportunity to enjoy the fabulous food at Owen’s Bistro. If I were rating just the food it would have received 5+ stars. Unfortunately, the day that my group of 5 went for a Friday night birthday dinner, our wait staff was quite confused and unprofessional. If I were rating just the staff, they would get 1... More

I have been traveling to Chino for years on business and my colleagues and I wanted something new. It was a search trying to find a non chain restaurant in the area. Well, what find it was. Owens was fabulous. the food was creative, beautifully presented, and delicious. I had fried brusses sprouts, pork with goat cheese, fried spinach and... More
