Always a fine time

The food and service are always top notch at the Bistro. Interesting and tasty selections even on the bar menu. Floor plan layout keeps each area intimate. Wait staff very knowledgeable on the menu.

Although this visit was specifically for my birthday, we have made BHB a destination with friends and family for years for two reasons: unique and impressive setting and marvelous food (with both the former and current chefs at the helm)! Nowhere else in the greater Chattanooga area will you find an array of offerings including game (elk tenderloin, bison, quail)... More

This restaurant has an exotic menu, appealing to those who are looking for something different, upscale, and an exceptional place to go for a special occasion. As a result, we go there rarely. It is pricey primarily because some menu options such as bison, ostrich occasionally, and other selections imported from ranches out West.Nevertheless, one can't go wrong since everything... More

Though the good folks at BHB will not want me to say this, they remind me of a personalized and more intimate version of Ruth's Chris Steak House, and with a wider menu. You will also pay for the experience, but this is an evening with your honey, linen, silverware and attentive service. Strangely, while steak and other wild meats... More

Wonderful atmosphere! The staff was very attentive. The food was delicious and a bit unique. The meal was a little pricey, but then it was a fine dining experience and the portions were a bit small. We finished with the feeling that we needed just a little more food on that plate, but overall, an enjoyable experience.

This is where we go for date night as often as we can!! Our favorite thing to do is for and the bar, chit chat with our fav bartender and order appetizers from the menu!! We have several dishes that we love but always start with the tomato mozzarella salad!!!

This was my 3rd time eating at BHB and I was disappointed. Service was slow, granted it was a Saturday night but it was slow. We didn't receive some items we ordered as our waiter forgot to put them in and he didn't offer to make it right. I ordered my meat medium well, it came out more like medium... More

Bald Headed Bistro has a great new menu -- and provide perfect, white table cloth service with style. Great food, great menu and great staff combine to make it a great evening. The Chopped Salad is the best in Tennessee and the Scallops were cooked to perfection. Great coffee with dessert was a great end.

Nice atmosphere and great service!! However, for the price the food is just "okay". Don't order the filet expecting a Ruth's Chris filet...you WILL be disappointed.
