Special occasion...date night...Tuesday.

The Bistro is a guaranteed wonderful meal and excellent wine selection. This is a sit-down and relax meal. No rush. Can't go wrong with any of the appetizers, so make sure you order at least one. My favorite thing on the menu is the Pecan Chicken. So simple, so delicious and very affordable... read 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

Sam and the Bistro staff put out some of, if not THE, best food in town. A wide range of Italian American fare, many standards/favorites, and changed up regularly/seasonally, and generous portions!. There is not a bad dish on the menu. Awesome dishes will be the same awesome when ordered again. Desserts make your eyes roll, and the extensive wine... More

very limited menu, very few drink choices and I could barely see 3 feet in front of me. I HATE giving bad review but this merits an exception. If you like the style of food here, well even then there must be better choices.

I really enjoyed my dinner at the Bistro on Main. The pasta dish I ordered was awesome. I liked the ambiance of the restaurant and was very surprised to find such a gem in this small town. I would definitely go back next time I am in the area. The service was excellent and my warm bacon salad was tasty.... More

The Bistro on Main has been a fixture in downtown Findlay for probably 20+ years. They have had some ups and downs but in eating there a couple of times in the last few weeks, I would say they may have hit their stride. Their menu has a nice selection of traditional italian fare and some customized dishes with their... More
