I've filled out the little form to report this restaurant is permanently closed at least three times. It was replaced by Antica, which has multiple reviews. TripAdvisor needs to get its act together. It totally ruins credibility when defunct restaurants end up well-rated, as if they were currently open.

My wife and I stopped into the Bistro on the Brandywine for lunch this afternoon. The place looked nice enough but the service was a little bit on the questionable side. My wife ordered some hot tea and it was served in a mug with red lipstick on it. We brought it to the waiter's attention and he brought a... More

We stopped in for dinner after an early movie. This was our first visit despite driving past for years and saying we should check it out. Overall it was okay. We had the Shepard’s Pie made with ground Buffalo meat. I couldn’t tell the Buffalo from beef. In any case, I prefer lamb to either and definitely like cubed better... More

After wanting to try this place for months, I finally got an opportunity. The menu sounded great but the food was adequate at best. The prices are way too high. My daughter had the margarita pizza which usually has fresh mozzarella and basil, but the Bistro's version was really just a plain cheese pizza. The mushroom soup wasn't hot and... More

Had business dinner here. Good atmoshphere: not too trendy, not too loud, tables not too close together, well lit, high celing, nice fieldstone wall. Grilled fish was cooked perfectly, arranged artistically, and served hot. Dessert was freshly made. Price reasonable.

I had lunch with several friends on Sunday afternoon and we had varying degrees of success with the food. One of my friends saw that you could bring wine, so the wine drinkers were happy. The soup fans were unhappy with the butternut squash soup, which they said had no flavor and was like a bowl of cream (OK if... More

This is place was completely dead on a Sunday night. Food was below average. Tables were not filled with people, but rather covered with dirty plates that were never cleared. I would not recommend it.

The restaurant reminded me of a local gasthaus in a German village. The food was basic, but not expensive. The decor was basic too. The service was good. The menu was adequate. The pumpkin soup was very good, but the margarita pizza left something to be desired (tomato sauce, to be exact).
