Very good but expensive

A high end place in downtown Findlay. Very good, steak cooked perfectly, beet salad was good. Bread was just ok. Good booze selection.

This is a popular downtown eatery with excellent food. I eat her at least three times a month. This visit I had the chicken chopped salad and it made a perfect lunch. The taste was top-notch and the ingredients used were exceedingly fresh. Sam and his team take wonderful care of their customers and everyone is super friendly. Their tomato... More

Business trip in Findlay led us led us walking through town. Happened upon this place, so we said why not. Nice atmosphere, nice service, and the food was very good. Every entree we ordered came with soup or salad to start. I had their garden salad which I will note had plenty of gouda cheese in it. One member of... More

Found the restaurant while searching on the GPS. Googled it to find more. Not disappointed at all. Very attentive and knowledgeable waitress, creative menu selections, nice wine list. Attractive decor that was a buzz with all of the tables filled.

I had a fairly enjoyable experience at Bistro on Main. I ordered a spinach salad that was served with an amazing apple bacon dressing. I also ordered a burger, which was good although the patty was too overly charred for my taste. My father ordered a pasta dish which he claimed was delicious, and from the one bite I tried,... More

My husband and I like to come here, mostly on rare occasion. We love the atmosphere inside. It's kind of dark, but it's always clean and good for dates. The food is good. It's one of the pricier places in Findlay, but they give you more food than you would think. I wonder why there doesn't seem to be a... More

Probably one of the strangest reviews I ever did. Went to a funeral in Findlay and a lot of goods things there because we were celebrating a life well-lived. We did have a catered meal at the Funeral home and found out the caterer was The Bistro. What a nice surprise to find that the meal was more than edible,... More

I dined here after reading reviews and from the suggestion of faculty at the local university. The atmosphere is wonderful. There was live music and an intimate feel to the restaurant. I was seated quickly, but that is where things became questionable. It took several minutes before I was greeted by a waitress to take my drink order. The place... More
