The restaurant is small, but quaint. I loved the ambience of the bar, decor, and exposed brick wall inside...made it feel very old. The servers are very polite, food was absolutely outstanding! I had the chicken roulade. Portions were a reasonable size.

Sat at one of the tables in the window as suggested when I made the reservation. They offer a wide selection of beers and wines. Two people in our party had the pork chops, one salmon, and one crab cake. All of us were very pleased with our meal. Sarah was our server and she did an excellent job. We... More

Is a little pricey, but you will like it. Getting ready to change hands, but don't worry as new owners are WELL established and have couple other well established restaurants in town and should be smooth turnover and same employees are staying so food should remain the same great standards! Will keep coming back!

We have been to bistro twice and thoroughly enjoyed both times. Very good menu choices and great food. We have eaten on the back patio each time. Service was also very good.

My husband and I decided to have dinner here last night after dining here 5 years ago, sadly, it was not what we expected. We like to support local businesses and had high hopes of having a pleasant outdoor dining experience here; thus sad to report that was not the case. The outdoor patio area is in desperate need of...

We dined at Bistro 71 on a Friday night. We had two of the evening's specials, a chicken and pasta dish, and a ribs dish. Both had excellent flavor. The portions were moderate but not too small. Our server was attentive. We ate on the back patio which was nice except for one persistent fly. A couple making the rounds... More

Thank you Trip Advisor. We found Bistro 71 from TA when we were driving through the area. The food and the service were excellent. We had two appetizers (fries and lamb), and two main dishes (scallops and duck). Everything was tasty and perfectly cooked. I don't give out 5 stars casually, but we couldn't find anything wrong with our meal.... More

We stopped in Chambersburg while traveling, and thanks to the positive reviews in Trip Advisor and Yelp, decided to give it a try. Every aspect of our meal was superlative from drinks to dessert. Service was wonderful as was Larry, the proprietor. It's not cheap, but well worth it.

When traveling through the area, YOU MUST DRIVE 5 minutes off I-81 and stop to dine at this wonderful bistro or you will be missing something special and the gem of Chambersburg! Food is creative, well prepared and the flavors are outstanding. Lamb Lollipops, Crab Mound, Southwestern Salad and Oyster special were are amazing in quality and taste. THEN WE... More

Food was terrific, nice ambiance, "drink of the day" was spot on. Live music was top notch without being intrusive. No need to eat at a chain restaurant when there's a locally-owned great option available.
