Great

A party of six ate there for dinner. The soups were excellent, so were the sandwiches and the bread. The house red wine was good, not enough though for $7.00 a glass. The service was good.

The chef greeted us and took the time to suggest entrees to accommodate my gluten allergy. The food was excellent and the waitstaff was attentive. It was a very enjoyable meal!

Decided to eat here for a different experience. It turned out to be a great idea. The food was delicious & very fresh. The salads were wonderful...loved the dressing. Everyone was very happy with their selection. Restaurant was small but comfortable. Wonderful looking desserts.

Our dinner at the Bistro was excellent. The menu offers a large variety of items and a good wine list. Being a simple eater, I had the chili and corn bread. Wow, was it ever good. Not too hot, but still with a bit of a bite. It was a Saturday night and the restaurant was pleasantly busy. Service was... More

One of my favorite places to eat! So yummy! I love the tomato basil soup and bread...the shrimp scampi is also very good. The lady who owns the bistro makes a chocolate cake at certain times of the year and it's the best chocolate cake I've ever ate!

The food here is so yummy! I love the tomato basil soup and garlic bread. The maple glazed (I think that's what it is) rolls are some of the best rolls I have ever had. At check out, they gave us free cookies that were melt in your mouth delicious.

My daughter and I went to Austin Street Bistro tonight for dinner. The menu was okay but overpriced. I had a salad and soup and she had a salad and grits. The food was fine. What really bothered us was the stack of 4 microwaves in the "kitchen area" which was part of the dining area that constantly went off... More

After a day of touring we walked in and had an excellant meal. The salad could have been a bit more crisp but the dijon dressing was good and the bread had a slight coating of rosemary butter and grated parmesan cheese and it was wonderful. Could have made a meal of it right there. We both had the tilapia... More
