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...

A tiny diamond hidden in Chambersburg. Food and atmosphere is amazing. Great place for a quiet romantic date.

Great food in a small but very cozy downtown location. Open for evening dining Tuesday through Saturday and Sunday brunch from 10 AM to 2 PM.

This is by far the best restaurant in this area. Most of the other choices in this town are mass produced food made in chain restaurants. The wine list and house wines are very nice. The food is delicious. The beef satay is flavorful. The crab cakes are mounds of lump crab meat. The fish is well prepared. The dessert... More

You wouldn't expect to find a good restaurant in central, south PA, but Chambersburg has the Bistro 71. The restaurant has a very nice brick interior with an outside eating area. It is very clean and the town elites appear to collect at this location. The food is sophisticated and the wines are upscale. Also the glassware is appropriate for... More

Serious fine dining, decorated with lovely artwork, a beautiful bar, and no TVs- we ended up staying for quite some time, as it is just such a pleasant spot to be. We had nice long chat with the owners, who are as personable as could be. If you are traveling on 81 past Chambersburg, do yourself a favor and dine... More

I was a little concerned when I read some of the reviews on this restaurant, however once I visited it I was hooked. I usually rate a restaurant on 3 counts, food quality, service and surroundings. Bistro 71 is a small upscale restaurant in downtown Chambersburg. While the location isn't what I would consider the fanciest it is easy to... More

This review will cover two separate visits that resulted in fairly similar experiences. Seating was prompt. Atmosphere was attractive though subdued. Classy with distressed red brick and dark hard wood accents. The drawback here is that with little to no Service was arrogant and forgetful on the first visit and unconcerned and confused on the second. Drinks stayed empty, servers... More

Our waiter, Jeremy, was... More

Always enjoy the drinks at the Bistro. Have the tomato bisque and grilled cheese. It's terrific and the rest of the menu items are always good.
