This restaurant offers a variety of unique items on their menu. The members of our group chose different things and all had positive comments about each dish. I chose the BR hamburger and sweet potato fries. The hamburger was phenomenal and their homemade ketchup, with a little spice, was delicious. For dessert, I would suggest trying the maple bacon cheesecake.... More

Best spot in Blowing Rock, hands down. We’ve been to Bistro a number of times, and this time went with our 2 year old, and another couple with their one year old. We were initially nervous about bringing our kids to a nice place, but it was a fabulous experience. Pro’s: -The service. It’s just amazing. They bend over backwards... More

This restaurant was crowded - a good sign. The service was polite and prompt. The food had a little twist that made it so delicious. We would go back!

Very nice ambiance. Extremely pleasant wait staff. The food is very good but be prepared to spend a little more for the experience.

SO and I were in the Boone/Blowing Rock area for a few days. A dear, old friend took us here for lunch. We weren't ravenous, so I didn't order a huge meal. I had the lamb bacon flatbread which was the perfect portion and delicious! I was disappointed when they were out of the tiramisu, but when I tasted the... More

While traveling in the area with four adults and four kids we stumbled upon Bistro Roca accidentally! They quickly set us up at a nice table! The food was really delicious and certainly satisfied the palate of a certain foodie who was in our party. They were also very accommodating to allergies and aversions. Might I add.,.I had a delicious... More

Ate on the back patio which was airy and pleasant. A little heavier menu than I would expect from a "bistro"- many fried and heavily sauced dishes. That said, the Calamari was the best we have had. Thick rings in a very light batter, very tender with a smear of Thai, BBQ and lemon aioli sauces - not your typical... More

Stopped in for lunch and was very impressed with the upscale feel, but not at all pretentious. We ordered Eggplant Frites as a starter along with the soup of the day - both excellent. The main meals were the Farmhouse Mac & Cheese and a Flatbread. Each dish was loaded with taste. Loved the mountain decor, excellent service - will... More

The food was slightly above average with dessert being the high light. Service was good but very slow. Not enough servers for the number of customers.
