The food and drinks are superb, especially the rizotto, Cosmo, and Mohito. Great service. It gets busy, so reservations are a must!

We had no reservation but we ate at bar. Bartender very friendly but busy. We waited a very long time for dinner, but apparently there was a glitch in their computer ordering system so kitchen didn't get order timely. Even though we didn't complain the owner comped one of our dinners, soup and drink. They have a diverse menu ranging... More

Upon traveling back to NYC from Niagara Falls we were looking for a place to eat in an area that has a more active nightlife scene. We chose Binghamton on a whim and checked out Yelp to see what people recommended. The menu looked good and they were open on a Sunday night so we decided to take a shot.... More

We were visiting our son at Binghamton University and wasn't sure where to go as we wanted to try something different. We took a tour of the Bundy Museum and after the tour, my wife asked the lady who gave us the tour her favorite place to eat and she couldn't say enough about the Tranquil Bar and Bistro. Not...

Went here for restaurant week in Binghamton, so chose from a select menu. As a first course had half of a roast quail with Brussels sprouts flavored with bacon. Second course I had the lamb moussaka. Dessert was pumpkin spice cake and a cup of coffee. All was excellent. The service is attentive. The place reminds me of a restaurant... More

A friend of my wife invited us to dinner at this Bistro. It is not in the part of town that I would go in by choice, but for my wife to have dinner with an old friend, we decided to go ahead and do it. There is ample parking across the street from the restaurant. I had the smoked... More

Enjoyed a very nice meal. The food was considerable better than my other two visits, although I thought the portion of duck breast was a bit small when compared to comparable restaurants. A nice size piece of salmon for the special but not cheap. The martini was excellent!

We arrived at 1:45 for brunch, ordered, and waited over 30 minutes to get our food. The wait staff were pleasant, even sweet, but with NO OTHER NEW customers in the restaurant, it seemed to take too long. The fettucini carbonera came in with what tasted like a burned onion and/or bacon swimming in a cream sauce, maybe; I couldn't... More
