Birthday Dinner

Dinner at the Bistro 71 was once again a delightful experience. The pictures show the salad and dinner dishes I ordered this evening. The presentation, as always, was perfect. The salad was fresh; greens had a crunch to them, with a balsamic dressing that mixed excellently with the greens. You... read more

Unexpectedly solid menu, decor, service. Portions were small. A few thin slices of Ahi on a sea of heavy risotto was not a good choice. Chicken stuffed with mozzarella on risotto was a good choice.

We made reservations for a Friday eveing dinner and we're glad we did, they were busy. I wasn't overly hungry and ordered the delicious, tender brisket panini. Best brisket I've had in years and the bread was also very good. One of my friend had the pork chop, it was large and tender. They were flexible in exchanging sides. It... More

I had two appetizers: The french onion soup with tenderloin tips and the lobster and crab dip. Both were excellent. I'm used to these types of things being way too salty, but not at Bistro 71. The flavor of the food was perfect. The staff was very courteous as well.

I love this place. This is our go-to restaurant. It's a little pricey but totally worth it! The salmon is the absolute BEST I've ever had. The duck is superb and their drinks are the perfection. Lovely, affordable wine list. Professional service. You can't go wrong here!

After a long wet day in Gettysburg we stopped in Chambersburg for dinner. We walked into this place, looking pretty soggy and without a reservation (on a Friday night). No worries- we were welcomed and seated and settled in with a drink from the busy bar. Nice wine selection and well made cocktails. The ambience was upbeat and "city", the... More
