Laura, our server, was very knowledgable and friendly. The food was delicious and the wine was refreshing. This place is a "must go to" in door county.

This was such a gorgeous restaurant we looked forward to eating here. When we arrived there were about 4 tables and we waited and waited to get seated. The staff glanced at us but not one said hello, we will be right with you. Finally after 10 min. we were given a table. Sat again, no water, nothing. Finally the... More

I went to the winery not planning on going out to eat. Walking past the restaurant (located in the winery) we had to stop. The atmosphere was beautiful. As we walked in the chef was behind the bar getting a drink and greeted us before the host. We were pleased to see him and asked for his recommendations right away.... More

Bistro 42 was my first stop getting into door county. The staff was friendly and efficient. We received our food about 15 minutes after our server took the order. Everything was excellent, perfectly cooked to order. Loved it so much I asked to speak to the chef. Sean was a delight. Can definitely tell he loves what he does and... More

After stopping at the winery and distillery that are in the building with this restaurant we were looking for some lunch and decided to stop in. The food and service was excellent and reasonably priced. We never felt rushed and our food was brought in a manner that was conducive to a relaxing lunch.

We stop at Bistro 42 as our first meal on vacation every year! The food is light and refreshing. The Caprese salad is delicious. It is enough for two of us. The show stopper is the Mushroom struedel. The garlic aioli is amazing with the crisp dough and the mushrooms are abundent. It is just heavenly.... If you buy the... More

We stopped at Bistro 42 for lunch one day. The dinning room was dark. The windows had stained glass on them and even though it was a sunny day the room was dark. The menu sounded good. The waiter made less than flattering comments about some of the items on the menu. One of us had a lunch salad, when... More

We dined at Bistro 42 twice during our vacation in Door County in June 2014. The food was excellent both times. Nice selection, very flavorful. The wait staff were friendly. The restaurant was clean and inviting. The prices were excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant.

First-we were well greeted by Oren. We were seated on the patio. He made suggestions as to what to choose. We went with his recommendations.....Awesome! Oren's service and our food were just amazing! We visited twice in 2 days.
