I was really impressed with the quality and presentation at Joy Bistro. We had the the soup du jour which was a creamy mushroom with chive oil. Simply perfect. Maybe the best soup I've ever eaten. Gnocchi special with ham, creme fraiche and figs was also very good. I thought it could have used a bit more salt but my... More

New Years Eve dinner with two couples. We had 7:00PM reservations, and were seated about 7:30. They had a Prix Fixe menu, 5 courses, with multiple choices for all but the first course amuse. The service was outstanding. Their wine list is copious, both by the glass and bottle, and of course, a full bar. Two in our party had... More

We had one of our best meals ever in this incredibly pleasant spot - like a little gem!! You simply can't imagine the lovely atmosphere from the outside. This was for our anniversary, and EVERY aspect of the meal was done to perfection. A truly lovely jazz ensemble played, plus the lighting and sparkling bar really added a cosmopolitan air.... More

We were staying at the La Quinta and Joy Bistro was right across the street so we could walk there. The food, atmosphere, and service were perfect. Will definitely will return on our next visit to Boone.

We were very eager to try this restaurant after reading the reviews, and it certainly lived up to everything that I read.

Although a bit expensive, the meal... More
