Good eatery

Very nice food and wait staff. There is also outdoor seating. The restaurant sits amid some of the major hotels so it is close.

This restaurant is a must! It is the only restaurant where I will order a steak. They always have new drinks to order, and the staff is very friendly!

My wife and I were visiting our great friends in Purlear, NC and they suggested we go to Joy Bistro for our anniversary dinner, what a great choice. The food was absolutely wonderful and the service was great. I actually told the chef that his scallops were the best I had ever had, and we live in Miami, Fl. If... More

Stopped here as it was a local establishment and close to our hotel. The food was wonderful. I had the black and blue and my wife had the three cheese ravioli. The kitchen was a little slow but the food is well worth the wait as it was to perfection. The wait staff is very friendly and attentive. This is... More

Intimate, one can actually have a conversation as some thought has been given to acoustics. Top that with excellent food and great service helped to make the evening special. We will revisit to sample more on the menu.

This bistro was a "joy" to dine at. We had warm bread salad that had warm fresh croutons and delicious dressing with fresh greens, yummy. We also had the raspberry salad with brie cheese melted into two fresh puff pastries and toasted almonds fresh greens and champagne vinaigrette. Both dishes were accompanied with freshly baked croissants drizzled with warm honey... More

We ate at Joy Bistro on a Friday night in June. Do call for a reservation. This place is very busy and deserves to be. It is in a strip mall but quite elegant inside. We had a fabulous waitress who gave us wonderful recommendations. I had an elderflower cocktail that was incredible. My husband had filet and I had... More

Very comfortable dining environment enhanced by exceptional live jazz music. As for the meal, the wonton appetizer was amazing and I was very satisfied with the beautifully presented ravioli entree and its abundant rich flavors. I was pleased with selection of craft beers and our server was friendly and efficient. Overall, a great night out at Joy Bisto. Highly recommended!
