Had a meal at this restaurant last night and had a lovely meal with great service and nice comfortable surroundings. Food was as good as we expected having reviewed other diners comments. Will return next time i'm staying overnight in this area.

We were looking for a small restaurant in New Glasgow - and located this establishment without doing any research. As a party of two we arrived on a Thursday nite without reservations and were immediately seated. The restaurant was relatively busy with most of the tables occupied.

The food is always exceptional and the service is fantastic! I love that the menu has some constants but the chef is always cooking with whats in season. You might be full from dinner but you HAVE to get dessert, especially the giant 'peanut butter cup'! Always a great evening at The Bistro.

The food was good. The service was really really slow. Considering the alternatives, I would suggest you try this place if you are in the area.

Starting with appetizers, flavor was "right up in your face" on every serving. The meal was superb in every respect from start to finish. Each dish was succulent, satisfying, and served in timely fashion. We are fortunate, indeed, to have this quality of food and service here in New Glasgow. We will be back!
