We sat in the bar at a high top during happy hour and had some drinks and small plates. Everything was very good, but the food was a little pricey for a small plate. The wine on the other hand at happy hour was really well priced. We will try it again. The atmosphere was great, the service was great,... More

I have been visiting Bistro 217 for several years while on vacation. Food is always good. Atmosphere great-friendly staff. Moderate prices. Happy hour at bar 4-7; you can order the days special as well as off the menu at the bar.

Saturday late lunch was excellent. Food was very fresh. The best veggie quesadilla I have had; however, I added shrimp which made it even better in my opinion. Menu had options for everyones taste. Attentive service. This was our favorite of the other 3 local restaurants we tried.

Go for a happy hour drink and stay for dinner. Fresh, well prepared and thought out sides, etc. nice service. Ambiance is casual. Croutons on Cesar do t seem home made, French onion soup is a bit salty...on.y negatives. Bread basket generous. One of the best meals in town.

Everything is delicious. The fish and chips are wonderful, and definitely try the hand made ice cream. Yum!

In our 8 years of residency , this has been the restaurant of choice when we had guests whom we wanted to impress with a delightful and relatively inexpensive lunch . The selections are unique, and the service has always been very good , for the locality .

Locals tipped me to eat at the bar or at one of the high bistro tables, versus regular dining tables. That is so we could take advantage of the great happy hour rates. The bar area was standing room only on a weekday late afternoon. I ordered a pear salad that was delicious with candied walnuts and goat cheese, but... More

I had the fish tacos, they were tasty, my daughter had the club sandwich. Our family totaled 20 people. One waitress handled the drinks and food. Can't remember her name, but she was great. Food came out fast and so did the drinks.
