Excellent customer service

After being treated rudely at another area restaurant, we stopped to pick up something to take back to the hotel for dinner. Order was placed quickly and prepared with attention to our specific wishes. Attention was paid to our take out needs for cutlery, sauces, etc. Food was delicious except... read more

Al was a very hard working guy when he was in town. Since this restaurant moved, he had a lot more staff and they were not trained and gave horrible service. Also the back of the house also suffered as he was not there on several occasions I ate there. You can tell when he is there making your food... More

We joined friends for a dinner celebration at The Bistro because our friends are regular guests and have been raving about the food and service. While the portions were very generous (3 sides with each entree), our mushroom soup and risotto were over-salted to the point of not being able to eat those courses. On a very positive note, our...

Tom, Thank you for taking the time to give us a review! We will be sure to let the kitchen know about your soup and risotto. We will also let Trisha know that you appreciated her good service. We hope that you will give us another chance and will do our best to exceed your expectations. More

I have several favorites on the menu. Sometimes service is slow but it is such a nice environment that it ceases to matter. The sliders are great, pizza is outstanding, the Maurice salad a classic from my lunches at Hudson's with my mom!

The Edgewater Bistro became so popular, they had to relocate to much larger quarters at the Charlevoix Country Club. This location is a bit off the main drag for tourists to find. The menu features a particularly large choice of offerings ranging from gourmet pizza and hand formed fresh meat burgers to full dinners with three side dishes included in... More

This was an excellent breakfast with the exception of the coffee. Everything else was wonderful and the view is excellent, overlooking the channel that leads from Round Lake to Lake Michigan, passing thru the bridge that opens on the half hour and allows for the passage of the ferry boats of Beaver Island as well as pleasure craft and sail...

We were wondering if we would run into what other recent dinners posted; long waits, wrong food etc, but that was not the case on a Thursday 5:30 visit. The dinning room is very large and was close to empty, maybe 4 or 5 tables occupied with 2 more groups on the patio. If you want a window table over... More

Very disappointing and this is the third and last time we will go to the Bistro. The first two times I gave them the benefit of the doubt, not any more.

We went to dinner tonight at the Bistro with another couple who eat there at least twice a week. This was our first time there and were looking forward to a lovely dinner. After over an hour waiting, we noticed tables who arrived after us being served their dinner. When I said something, our waiter huffed away and then returned... More
