Homemade but not by me

The carrot cake made by the best baker/chef, Malinda is far and away the most moist and full of flavor cake. The best part is the perfect cream cheese icing. There's a lot of it, but not too much and it makes the perfect birthday cake , with room to write anything on top. I always get it for... read more

The best! I ordered them for a family party. Heavenly! Also ordered the apple radish slaw and it was a big hit too.

There's an appealing selection and I've had some good food from Bistro-to-go. But I've also had incompletely cooked chicken and spoiled/rancid side dishes, so there is no predictability on the quality. It is too risky for me - I've given up on it. Also, the counter service is not particularly friendly.

Food is delicious and high quality. Truly fitting to its name. Perfect for take out or catering. But if you are eating there, don't drink their tap water-taste and smell strange. Also, the way they charge seems to be often inconsistent to the labels-something you have to put up with in experienced staff.

Gourmet, healthy yummies (soups rock!) to go/or stay. My 13 year old son said yesterday as he gazed in the long case of gourmet options, "How do I possibly choose?" If you dine in there's always a wonderful chat with Mary Anne and Richard! I love the local warmness and community love inside. I watched Mary Anne as she painted... More

Mary Anne and Richard Erickson provided the catering for our intimate wedding in Woodstock NY during July 2014. The food was unique, and excellent and the assistance, resources and direction they provided us was invaluable. They delivered top notch service and more. Thanks so much for helping to make our affair so perfect.

As a new and exciting bonus, Bistro-to-Go is having Nina Sheldon's gentle jazz music combos on Thursday's, 5-7 p.m. So now on Thursdays, it will be known as "Bistro-to-Stay"!! We so enjoyed a delicious dinner with delectable tunes, by Nina Sheldon/piano and Peter Einhorn/guitar, that all go together so well. It is a small, intimate seating area so we arrived... More

I truly want to love this restaurant. They have so much going for them, including fresh, home cooked and interesting, tasty dishes, several of which are usually vegetarian, which I appreciate. However, they have got to do something about their counter help. It drives me crazy, pretty much every time I order. For some odd, unexplainable reason, there is not... More

We thank you for your review and appreciate your concern. We will review our procedures with our staff to improve our service. Probably the most logical way to correct this is to have folks pay immediately for the meal they are going to sit down and enjoy. That way the person who has just taken your order will ring you...

Actually, you can sit down to enjoy this too. It's up-scale cuisine, but not terribly expensive, and my family loves it when I bring this home for dinner. Any of it; it's all good. They don't always have them, but the crab cakes are amazing. They serve nice sandwiches and wraps, and have added a great little bakery as well.... More

we've been to bistro to go many times and the food has always been excellent. the menu is varied: from egg sandwiches and pastries in the morning to a wide variety of fresh and interesting prepared dishes. the set up is more like a gourmet deli where you order at the counter and (if you are eating there) they will...
