Wow!

Start with the Coconut pie!!! I have never had one so good! We also had an appetizer of shrimp wrapped in Phyllo dough and summer salads that had strawberries and watermelons and goat cheese and balsamic drizzle! The service was quick and really friendly. The only thing that could have been better... read more

This was the only restaurant open in Edenton, so we dined here. Despite the surprisingly good wine list for a small restaurant, the food I thought was poor due to lack of meaningful competition. Despite my wife enjoying he ahi-tuna starter which was huge, the food went downhill fast. My steak was cooked correctly, but was tasteless and the green... More

We enjoyed a great meal at the bistro. We chose two of their specials. The pork chop brined in maple syrup brine was very tasty and very moist. The tuna with mushroom ragu was absolutely wonderful. We both had the Gruyere potatoes that were out of this world good. The service was excellent. The staff was welcoming and friendly. We... More

We had a really nice lunch at this downtown restraurant in Edenton. The place was fairly busy and the food was very good and our server Devine provided excellent customer service. The creme brulee desert was exceptional

We eat here every time we are in town. The lunch & dinner menus are equally good. I have never been disappointed with my choice. There is a good choice of sandwiches & salads for lunch. The dinner menu is equally good. The wait staff is attenative & friendly.

My husband and I recently visited 309 in Edenton, NC and enjoyed our food and the staff were very professional. Our order was on time, no long wait period, cooked as ordered. The staff very much on target and helpful. Enjoyed 309!

We stopped by for lunch and split a sandwich and cup of soup and it was wonderful! My only complaint is that we could not get a smaller plate for lunch - such as half a sandwich and soup or salad - so we could try more of the great sounding menu items! It was very clean, and the waitress... More

Attentive service, tasty food, and ambiance to match. Wasn't crowded at 11:30 AM for lunch. Our food came quickly. Some locals said it was pricey - however it is on par with larger city bistros. We would not hesitate to return. Desserts are wonderful and obviously house made.

Met friends for lunch...easy drive from Tidewater area and Lewiston, NC...the food was delicious and prepared perfectly. The server was attentive and pleasantly animated. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone travelling to Historic Edenton.
