A upscale dining experience for small town

The Bistro was a very nice dining experience for my friend and I and thoroughly enjoyed our dinner selections. The wedge salad was very good as well. It's a great place to have a leisurely, relaxed dinner and drinks or for a special occasion. Looking forward to summer outside dining there as well.

Ate there a few weeks ago. Crab cake overcooked on one side. Salad fairly small but good dressing. Not much selection on dinner menu. Not worth the price in my opinion.

Very disappointing. Party of four had 8:30 reservation. Was seated and a half hour later not one of the waiters or waitresses never bothered to come to our table. A short visit to let us know they were busy or someone would be right over would have been nice. After waiting for 30 minutes we got up and walked out... More

The folks from Norland Pub have done a great job of turning this place around. The food and service is much improved. I had given up on this restaurant having had less than stellar experiences under the previous owners.

Restaurant is under new ownership. Atmosphere, service, food and drinks were excellent. The bar is well stocked with choice brands of wine and liquor. The waitress was very attentive without being annoying. Our entrees were delicious and nicely prepared and presented. My husband said his double pork chop was the best he had ever eaten. My chicken roulade stuffed with... More

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...
