Service was on the slower side but that was ok bc we weren't in a rush. Food was ok, nothing spectacular especially for the prices. Wouldn't rush back. Very small inside. Waitress was really friendly.

Great homemade soups. The menu has a nice selection of entrees. Our meals have always been very good with generous portions. Excellent waitstaff too.

Everything we ate had a touch of something that made it great. We went for lunch the turkey club and burgher were great. We will go back.

Stopped here after an event on Presque Isle with our family of 5, including 3 young kids. Our service staff was super friendly and accommodating and I loved my little panini. Our waitress even brought a surprise dessert for my husband to celebrate his birthday. Regular food, nothing elaborate or esoteric, but satisfying.

Erie Pa's best restaurant continues to hit the ball out of the park! The filet of sole was magnificent accented nicely with mash potatoes and asparagus. It is a difficult dish to find but the Bistro has mastered it! My spouse had the ribeye and it too was outstanding.......haven't heard from anyone who has ever had a bad meal there....worth... More

Not what I would call an upscale restaurant. Food was ok but not outstanding. No salad fork and no separate plate for bread. Napkins were like large paper towels. Not having a full bar is a real drawback. On a scale of 1 to 10 I would rate Bistro 26 a 6.

Bistro 26 seems to be walking the tightrope between fine and casual dining. The service during my luncheon visit was excellent. My waiter was personable, timely and attentive. I ordered an unsweetened iced tea and perused the menu. For this meal I ordered the muffuletta. The sandwich comes with one side dish, I chose the side salad with the house... More

I had lunch here with my parents during my recent visit. The food was excellent. I had the Ham soup and Italian panini. Both were awesome. Other than a small screwup in my parents orders service was pretty good. Prices are reasonable. Will be back on my future visits.

My family and I stopped in Erie, PA (a frequent overnight point for us when traveling to and from central New York) and learned that our favorite restaurant there (see my previous reviews for specifics) would be closed that day. Disappointed, we requested information about other fine dining in Erie from our hotel staff and were told that Bistro 26... More

Bistro 26 is just the place I need when my taste buds tell me it's time for more than just a quick meal. It's that 'Tickle My Taste Buds' type of restaurant. Great service!
