When visiting Binghamton, we are always looking for a great place for a quiet family dinner. Our first visit to Tranquil was five months ago and it showed a lot of promise as a young restaurant that could grow into something really special. So we chose it for a special occasion on a recent Sunday, and made a reservation, although... More

For Restaurant Week in Binghamton three of us visited the Tranquil Bar & Bistro for the first time. We were very pleasantly surprised by the variety and creativity of the French-inspired menu as well as the decor. Between the three of us we sampled the rabbit and pistachio terrine, the duck breast, the salmon filet and an interesting acorn squash... More

Tranquil is always my first choice for a nice dinner out. I have never had a meal that was less than excellent. The Chilean sea bass charbroiled and served with lump crab risotto, wilted spinach, and buerre blanc is among my most favorite. I always jump at their seafood specials. They have wonderful clam and mussel appetizers, as well as... More

Excellent food, service, ambiance---I look forward to going back when visiting Binghamton again. They accommodated a party of 12 (family reunion) with ease. The filet mignon was tender despite my preference of having my steak cooked "well-done". The vegetarian members of my family also enjoyed the vegetarian choices on the menu. Would go back again when in town. Highly recommend... More

KNOW Theatre is proud to count Tranquil Bar & Bistro amongst their friends, partners, and sponsors in Binghamton's thriving arts community. With less than two weeks' prior notice, they came through & catered a major fundraiser event for us. As the evening was New Orleans-themed, they delivered the goods and prepared some outstanding Creole food: a delicious dip with shrimp,... More

This is in a very pleasant storefront space in a kind of weird part of downtown Binghamton - kinda scary burnt out houses and the Greyhound bus station to one side, a big downtown street deserted at night on the other. It didn't feel dangerous, just weird, and it was very comfortable inside. Kind of a hipster/student vibe. Fairly empty... More

Tranquil is one of my all time favorite restaurants! I have greatly enjoyed the delicious appetizers and entrees numerous times over the years. The head chef is an amazing cook; I have personally thanked him many times. I have yet to experience service that was not outstanding. The staff is always upbeat and in great mood. They are very knowledgeable... More

We were visiting Binghamton friends and they raved about the food at Tranqil. We went for Sunday brunch and I was delighted with the Crème Brulee French Toast, wife had an omelet. Location is near the Phelps Mansion and other examples of "old" Binghamton. Great food and service in a pleasant setting.

I've dinned here dozens of times over the years and have always walked away satisfied. The ambiance reminds me of an Upper West Side NYC neighborhood Bistro. Intimate, warm and inviting.
