Tried this restaurant for an evening out, based on Trip Advisor reviews. It is located in quiet and quaint Black Mountain, NC. The relaxed atmosphere with outdoor dining with a nice view of the mountains proved true and it was a nice break from busy places in larger cities. The food was good but our menu selections were only of... More

Very friendly people who work there. We had an 80th Birthday party for our friend. Her son couldn't have picked a better place for his mom's birthday. I think it might be his mom's favorite restaurant. I like it very much. It is a cute little restaurant. Easy to find. One of my favorite dishes was spinach/artichoke dip with awesome... More

Maybe this was just an off night for them, but our experience at this restaurant was average, at best. I ordered the portobello, goat cheese and strawberry wrap. Half of it had almost no filling. There was probably not half a mushroom cap in the whole tortilla, and very little cheese. However, I would give them 5 stars on the... More

We decided to try this restaurant based upon the outdoor seating areas. We enjoy dining outside and this restaurant has a lovely, tree shaded dining area. It was a lovely nght and the food was wonderful. My wife and I both had the filet special. It was prepared to perfection. We topped the meal off with a slice of coconut... More

The Bistro has a very good menu for this small town and the prices are awesome! Very good wine selection with limited beer, but the best beer is at Lookout Brewery across the street. The porch and patio seating is so quaint and amidst large shade trees.

We ordered sandwiches (grouper ruben and portobelo burger) so it may be our own fault, but these were extraordinarily heavy and with extra oil on the toasted-in-a-skillet ruben. Iced tea was excellent. We'll go for a second try, ordering salads next time.

We were so excited to return to Black Mountain Bistro. Unfortunately, we will not be returning. To start, I ordered a club soda, which arrived completely flat. No one gave us silverware, so we had to ask for it, twice. The napkins were paper- I was expecting cloth. They were out of the wine we ordered. The appetizer plates were... More

I usually go for the reuben or the patty melt, but they've got so much to offer. Great outdoor seating and a good spot for a casual lunch with the family or a nice date later in the evening.

We cannot say enough good things about tonight's delightful and delicious wedding rehearsal dinner. Thirty of our friends and family gathered to eat, drink, and celebrate...and enjoyed every minute and mouthful! In preparation for this much-anticipated event, catering manager provided guidance in helping us choose a menu (which she printed for our guests), decorated the tables with fresh flowers and... More

Very poor service--it took them over one hour to get out food to us. The atmosphere was about the best thing I could recommend. Don't expect to get in and out soon, and for goodness sakes don't order the meat loaf and smashed potatoes. Maybe it was an off night. I sure hope so. Never again
