We had a wonderful meal at the Bistro last night. It started with a friendly welcome and warm atmosphere. There were a great mix of locals and visitors, and service was attentive but not oppressive. It was quiet enough for a romantic conversation. Food was delicious, with lots of healthy alternatives. A+!

Scallops, steak second to none. Service excellent also. Place busy with a Christmas party, but never affected service. Highly recommend.

First time back to this restaurant in a while, service was excellent, food was well presented and tasty. The only thing about this location is the environment is a tad crowded for my liking, that aside the food is always good the specials were good value for the money.

I really enjoyed the quiet and romantic setting in this restaurant and the food was incredibly good! I ordered the tomato feta soup which was delicious and the beef tenderloin with peppercorn sauce was perfect! The crème brulee dessert was also much loved!! We enjoyed this restaurant as a couple but it would also be great for celebrations as there... More

The Bistro has been providing excellent meals for many years now in New Glasgow. We do not hesitate to trek 50+ km from a neighbouring town because we feel the dining experience cannot be matched here. The food is always fresh and delicious. The vegetables cooked to perfection and the beef tenderloin with goat cheese is awesome! What makes the... More

Much a due about nothing! We do not mind spending money on great food and service, but when you spend top dollar on mediocre food and service ... Disappointing !

I was happy to celebrate my birthday with great company, excellent personalized service and delicious food. The mussels were served steaming with the perfect amount of sausage (house made) as usual. We had a great time, if they are offering the Blueberry Martini.....try it you will like it. Hope to return again soon.
