Description: In April of 2004 I opened my first restaurant, Bistro70, located at 70 N. Saint Clair in the heart of Historic Downtown Painesville. Bistro70’s mission from the beginning has been to provide a complete dining experience, which includes an innovative menu, a friendly and well trained staff, all brought together in a warm & trendy atmosphere that exudes energy and comfort. The mission has been achieved and continues to thrive. Over the past 9 years, Bistro70 has become one of the favorite restaurants of Lake County diners, and is a perennial winner of local and regional awards including News Heralds “Most Romantic Restaurant”, Fox8 Hot List Top 10 restaurant in Cleveland for the last 3 years, (#2)2009, (#3) 2010, (#9) 2011, Nation “Table Top Design Award” winner 2004, featured on "Dinner and a Movie " with David Moss, John Long (PD) “Tasty 20”. Today Bistro70 continues its dedication to my vision of providing the complete dining experience and offers something for everyone through its diverse seasonal and locally sustainable menu. As one of the early pioneers of the revitalization of Painesville, I support the local community and continue to strive to make Bistro70 the perfect dining destination in the area.

I hate getting on here and seeing bad reviews! This place is wonderful!! I love it!! Such a perfect/cute little place to dine. Hey we can't always please everyone. There's going to be at least one unhappy guest here and there. Keep this place flowing, we adore it! Thanks Bistro 70!

Not sure what all the hype is about, went in just to have desert and coffee. Wanted two deserts that were on the menu but both were not available. Ended up with Creme brulee was stone cold. No creamer for coffee. Never again.

Perhaps the best meal I have ever had.....eaten at Bistro 70. This is a small, intimate restaurant with the most amazing food. Salads are fresh, served with amazing house made dressings. Risotto was just perfect. Grouper, salmon were done to perfection. My husband and I were both pleased beyond compare with the meals served here. Go for it!!

The bar was the focal part of the small restaurant. The happy ht group overwhelmed the atmosphere with noise making the experience disappointing

Just went again for my birthday... If I am going to splurge with my calories I want to dine where I know it will be worth it. The chef is always on site which is why the quality is always there. Duck Fat Fries, Pot stickers, Caesar salad, Braised Short-ribs, Scallops you name it it's wonderful. One of our favorite... More

Great food...great service. Grouper and wild mushroom pasta are so good! Never had a bad meal or bad service! Love the personal attention of the chef/owner. It certainly is an asset to the city!

We stopped while traveling and found Bistro 70 online. The wait staff, hostess, chef, and bartender were very gracious and professional. Wonderful service. The food was superior and very carefully done. The appetizer choices and presentations have a lot of style. My grouper, thick and moist, had a nice picante zing to the sauce that hit the perfect flavor note.... More
