We spent a lovely evening at the Village Bistro with North Carolina friends. The food was great, the view just gorgeous. The dining room is warm and rustic, but open, large, and architecturally lovely. I would go back. It was, however, a trip, a restaurant that is sort of a destination--the clientele has to know about it, or be advised... More

The food here was very good. I had the Pork Tenderloin and my wife had the Italian chicken, both of our dishes were very good, and there is not much that i can say about the food beyond that, however the prices were a little high for the portion sizes, and with the prices you pay, the atmosphere should be...

Our visit to this restaurant came as a referral from another restaurant manager in the area, believe it or not, who could not accommodate our group because they were full. What a great find this was! We had out-of-state guests and wanted to "show off" the area. We all loved it! the staff were very nice, congenial. Every dish was... More

Sandy and I stop here most Friday evenings on the way to our cabin in the area. Their pork loin, steaks, crab cakes, salads, and trout are superb, while several items such as their shrimp and grits and Greek chicken leave a bit to be desired. The service can be inconsistent but perhaps that is because Nantahala Village and the... More

My wife and I had a recomendation to stop for dinner at The Village Bistro, from a very knowledgeable local, after a long day of kayaking on the Nantahala. We weren't expecting anything so refined. We loved the Arts & Crafts architecture and decor of the resort, which is really well suited to its surroundings. We sat outside on the... More

I have been very pleased with the new menu this year. The smaller plates (appetizer menu) is great! I loved everything on it. Their trout, steaks, and specials are great The sides that come with the meals are unique and not your every day sides. I have eaten both in the bar and the restaurant. Super Super food.

Well seasoned and prepared food. Nice variety of menu options. I wished the service was a little faster but the food made it worth the wait. Sitting outside with a nice view was also enjoyable.
