I am amazed that downtown Chambersburg has a restaurant of this quality! The food is 5 star rated. There is both inside and outside seating available. The "Lamb Lollipop" appetizer with raspberry sauce is the hands down best appetizer I've ever had. The duck is great (moist, and surprising not heavy or gamey at all). I'll be going back!

My husband and I are new to the area and are trying local restaurants. Over priced and small portions. Wrong restaurant for small town. We had the crab cakes and salad. Taste was okay but left hungry.

The food here is absolutely delicious and unique. Upon arriving, we were seated quickly but did not get service for a long time. Luckily, we had a hostess/server who stepped in for our server. It was a really poor start, but then the staff got more attentive and we ended up having a great evening. The atmosphere is great and... More

I've eaten here 3 separate times, with both small group and several couples. The atmosphere is trendy, the outdoor seating is nice and the food is great. Ahi Tuna is one of my fav dishes and just tried the Duck, which was exceptional. The Calamari and Lamb Lollipops are both must try apps. Drink menu is extensive and has a... More

My wife and I were spending the night in Chambersburg passing through on I81. We looking for an alternative to the fast food/chain fare offered at the exits. Bistro 71 was an excellent alternative. We had a really enjoyable meal. It's in the center of Chambersburg, only a short drive off the highway. We had the lamb lollipop appetizer and... More

This place has AMAZING food. Try the lamb lollipops to start, they are delicious! Bistro 71 has attentive staff, creative food that appeals to all tastes, and they now have a beer tap for craft beers. VERY PLEASANT experience

I went here for the first time for a Wilson College reunion. We've been wishing for something like this for years. It's classy looking, the food is sophisticated and really good. If this were in NYC, I'd say very good. But given that it raises the bar in so many ways in this town, I'm saying excellent. The staff was... More

Last evening we took a drive from York pa in our convertible with no particular destination. 50 miles from home, we found Bistro 71 at dinner time. Honestly, I had the best pork chop dinner here that I ever had and my companion's filet was incredible as well. The atmosphere was spot one for casual chic and the service, wine,... More

We were so grateful to Scott and his great staff! He opened the bistro for our party of 19 and treated us like special friends with a great meal from the full menu. We lived the cute patio and just had a great time. The food was lovely-- lamb lollipops and shrimp--chicken dishes and risotto-- everything flavorful fresh and artfully... More
