If you would like a quiet place for lunch and maybe a glass of wine, with attentive service and a classy atmosphere, Bistro 26 is a good choice. It is located in West Millcreek, only about 10 minutes from downtown Erie. The lunch menu includes a range of sandwiches, panini, burgers, wraps, salads (most of which are made with either... More

Although I had eaten here several times for lunch and it was always excellent, this was my first trip for dinner. The service and atmosphere were wonderful. I had fish which was a bit overwhelmed with seasoning. That is, however, my only complaint since the rest of the food was wonderful and fresh and clearly well=prepared. The wine list was... More

I had lunch here recently and had a great experience! My husband and I shared the Shrimp Scampi Crostini for an appetizer, which is absolutely fantastic. Each and every time I have had this, I have not been disappointed - I call it the 'plate of perfection'! I ordered the chicken salad wrap sandwich with fries and it was delicious... More

The atmosphere and food were excellent! The service was wonderful and the prices were great for the amount of great food you get. The sun-dried fettuccine alfredo with chicken was incredible as was the scallop linguine that my friend ordered. I definitely recommend the location to anyone who is looking for a more high class experience for a good price.

While the quality of the food has stayed the same since my last visit, you can no longer BYOB. I reviewed the wine list and was surprised that a bottle of wine you can purchase in any of Pennsylvania State Store for $6.99 was selling for $6.00 a glass. That is almost a 300% profit margin. I realize they have... More

We have visited Erie twice recently and eaten at Bistro 26 both times. The first time was a recommendation from our hotel. We were very impressed with the quality of food we received here. Even though they are a bit pricier than the standard chain restaurants, the quality and taste is well worth a bit more. Great service and very... More

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.
