We choose this resturant because its location near the theatre. There speality drinks were very good and the foood was ok. I took my family and they said they could make something for my 5 year old, what they did not tell me was it was going to cost $12 for mac and cheese. I would go here again for... More

We used to love Bad Art Bistro. When it first came to town, it was a nice place to dine for special occasions and the food was incredible! Fast forward to the purchase by a new owner in May. There were 10 people in our party and not one person had a pleasant experience. Everything, from the salmon, to the... More

We based our choice of restaurant on very positive Yelp reviews. I'm sure those reviews were dead on; however, the restaurant changed hands recently. New ownership cannot excuse all of the problems in this place. The night we went, half the menu items were unavailable because, we were told, the owner was out of town for a week. If this... More

Great service and great atmosphere! They had a band on the patio when I was there and it was such a fun evening downtown! Will be back soon!

We decided to try this place again after we had heard about a change in management. What a difference this change made, for the better. The menu is slowly changing, so not all of the items were available, but the food they had to offer was perfect. The service was also exceptional. If you visit while the weather is nice,... More

We had a business dinner here for our organization, and were extremely pleased by the new chef and staff. Great food, perfect cocktail service, and a beautiful outdoor space. Highly recommended!

Upscale, trendy eatery that is consistently good: food is excellent and cooked to order, and service is equally always good. The place has recently changed ownership so it will remain to be seen if the quality remains high. Great wine selection. Prices are higher but commensurate with the venue. Dress is casual or business casual (though being in the Midwest,... More

Food was really good but extreme variations on portion sizes. Quail is what poor people eat and this place charges $13 for barely a bite or 2 while the pig tail was a much larger portion for 1/3 the price. Regardless this food was outstanding and I will be back again.

The food here is amazing! A foodies paradise you don't find often in a small town. I like a place that has a dynamic menu. The chef pays close attention to whats in season and the dishes always reflect that.

This restaurant is the one I recommend unconditionally to all of my friends and guests. The menu, created by a genuine French chef, is simply superb. A wine list with class and lots of variety rounds out the experience. Service staff is always knowledgeable, helpful, and attentive. Visit the Bad Art Bistro for any special occasion or just treat yourself... More
