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.

When we ride our Harley for a weekend trip, we try to find restaurants within walking distance of our B&B which limits our choices and sometimes the quality of our dinners. But not this time! Bistro 71 was about a 10 minute walk and when we got there we were delighted by the welcome and attention. A big plus, which... More

I can't recommend this restaurant enough. The owners are so personable and thoughtful and are engaged in the challenge to provide great dining in a small town. We had a fabulous special dinner sharing luscious mussels in white wine and garlic appetizer and an asian spiced shrimp app, then a perfectly sweet lobster chowder and we both had a perfectly...
