Great Service and Good Food

We arrived late on Friday evening. Even so, we had excellent service. We asked to split a sandwich, The Philly. It was more than enough for two people. It was served piping hot and was very tasty.

Price not parallel with quality of meal. Although staff friendly not well versed in meal content and preparation questions. Little privacy but nice setting

I am sorry you did not enjoy dining with us. We are training several new staff members who are still learning the menu and I apologize if they could not answer your questions it does take some time to learn our menu since we have a variety of choices. We have always felt our pricing was more than fair due... More

My husband and I decided to stop here for lunch on the weekend. It was nearly 2pm, so not terribly busy but several patrons Inside and on the patio. The patio is what attracted us since it was a beautiful day . No one came to the table for at least 10 to 15 minutes, not so much as water.... More

I entered the bistro and wasn't greeted by anyone. I sat myself on the sun porch where one other table was occupied and two tables needed to be bused. I waited ten minutes for a waitress to come check on the other table and offer me a menu but I went ahead and ordered without a menu. Service continued to... More

I apologize for your experience on Wednesday. We were very shorthanded on Wednesday, we were minus a server and a cook. I know this is no excuse for bad service but with the season just beginning we have been trying to hire more people but have not had a great response. I would like to offer you a gift card... More

There so many great places to eat in Black Mountain that we often overlook The Bistro. Great grouper Reuben and vegetable panini. There are a variety sides available with each order. Service was great and glass porch was a nice setting.

Pleasant surprise here. The food was exceptional. Grouper sandwich and sweet potato fries were not only delicious, but the quantity of fries was huge. Service was great, and atmosphere pleasant. I am eager to go back and try something different.

Stopped for an evening meal after the season had slowed down. The food was ok nothing to write home about. Had turkey and dressing and had to ask for dressing because the serving was so small. Nice atmosphere to sit out side. Service ok. In general just ok.

I am so sorry you did not enjoy your experience when you dined with us and I wish we would have gotten your review sooner so I could address these issues and corrected our mistakes with a gift card to try us again.
