Local AMAZING food!

Seriously! You need to go to Pairings. I always celebrate great events, or even just great happiness here because the meals are always so fun and exciting! The desserts are the absolute best too!!

I remember when they opened. They have continued to get better and better. Now they have outside, (heated) seating. The atmosphere inside is very nice. Have came for lunch a few times. The food is really good. Staff is great. A little pricey but a great place for a lunch meeting or date night.

My husband and I went to Pairings for a fancy birthday dinner. Every dish was delicious, flavorful, and expertly prepared, and the wine was paired perfectly, as promised. We'll definitely be back!

We went to Pairings Bistro this past Saturday night to celebrate a friend's birthday. My husband and I both got the 4 course create your own pre-fixed menu. We ordered different things and shared, so we could taste more of their offerings. Everything I tasted was really good. I especially liked the Cream of Crab soup, French Onion Soup, Beet... More

If it is your first time to this restaurant, do the pairing menu. Well chosen wines accompany each course. Lots of fun, really great food and delicious wines.
