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. The menu is a bit limited, but amazing when you take into consideration the size of the kitchen. The staff has always been efficient, friendly with a slight witty... More

A friend and I recently had a very pleasant meal at the Tranquil French Bistro in Binghamton. I ordered the prix fixe 3 course menu and had the crab cakes for a starter, which were nice and crisp with a well made sauce accompaniment. The french onion soup was my next choice and it was a unique presentation which I... More

We went as a group for a pre-graduation party and enjoyed the food with a wonderful Malbec. Decently priced food for a party of five, we especially enjoyed the appetizers.
