Enjoyed a wonderful dinner at 309 Bistro. The service was good in spite of being very busy. The food was wonderful. Nice place for dinner.

This is the best place to dine in Edenton. Good food and atmosphere. Service is excellent. We had lunch and dinner two nights. Delicious shrimp and grits.

In every aspect, 309 was a superior experience. Decor had a true bistro ambiance. The waitstaff was knowledgable and professional. The contemporary American menu was appropriately limited and well prepared.

I was in town for three nights, and the first two nights this place had a sign up that their phone lines were down so they were cash only. I tried again my third night, and I'm SO glad I did. The food was amazing. I had the 309 Shrimp and Pasta, which was shrimp with artichokes, feta cheese, and... More

Arrived with 5 folks; immediate seating despite being nearly full. Good lunch menu, quick service, and good food. Certainly worthy of another visit to sample the home-made desserts.

I am generally very choosy about my restaurants and tend to avoid anything with the word "bistro" in the title as it is usually an excuse for inflated prices for small portions in a pretentious atmosphere. That is not the case here. First of all, the atmosphere was spot on and having booked a table for 8 o'clock, we turned... More

This place is amazing. Try the Brussels sprout casserole; you won't be disappointed. Ribeyes are great too. My son had the blackened swordfish. Another winner!

Been in North Carolina for 2 weeks, and so far have eaten out at least once every day. This has been thus far, the most outstanding meal!. We ordered 3 different entrees, and each one was more outstanding than the other. Definitely the best seafood, best bistro steak medallions, and lamb piccata. It's rare when the vegetables actually warrant a... More

Attractive restaurant and quiet on this Tuesday night. For the wine lover there are reasonably priced wines by the glass. Food is really flavorful from the baked cod to the vegetable dishes. The yellowfin tuna was excellent!

Nothing fancy here, but the food was great with very nice fresh seafood. From apps, to salads, fish, dessert the meal was thoroughly consistent with perfect temperatures and presentation. We noticed it was packed with locals on a Wednesday night which always speaks well in a small town atmosphere. We will be back again for a repeat.
