Went there because of a Groupon. Beautiful, elegantly decorated dining room. Friendly, attentive service. Food to die for. I had something called Crab Cake Napoleon. It was wonderful-- crab cake on a marinated portabello mushroom with bearnaise and asparagus. Heavenly! We will go there again!

The menu is a little eclectic, just like the restaurant, good diversity. The food is excellent, priced fairly. large serving sizes. The wine selection was good, the glasses were small, but priced to reflect this. The service was top shelf I would definitely go back again.

Russ and his family know how to provide a classy, European style romantic dining experience in downtown historic Petersburg! Good selection of wine and spirits, adventurous cuisine mixed in with favorites. Attentive, friendly, happy staff make sure our meal is first class!

Went to Petersburg for VA Historic Garden Week, enjoyed the homes and gardens even in the rain, but after a long morning, looked for a restful lunch place. We found excellent service at the Bistro although a tour bus was just leaving and the staff clearly had already had a busy day. As several reviewers mentioned, the decor is unique.... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this little place in Olde Towne Petersburg. For those of you traveling from out of town, Petersburg is an old, historical city in central Virginia. In recent years, much effort has been made to gentrify the area and revitalize what they call "Old Towne." They've done a nice job and this restaurant is a good... More

One of our all-time favorite restaurants. Sadly this was our first trip this year, but it will not be the last. The food is creative, with great flavors, from appetizers to desserts. Alcohol is available. The service is top drawer with a wait staff that is well trained and knows the nuances of each offering. The decor is a composite... More

Great food, service and atmosphere. Worth the expense. We've eaten at the Bistro at least four times in the past two years and every meal has been excellent.

This was my first visit, but my wife's second. The restaurant is located in an old gas station in Old Town Petersburg. But you wouldn't know that if you hadn't been told. The interior has an interesting assortment of decorations and furnishings, that will entertain you as much as the food will. The lunch selection was good and all at... More

I was going to try it out with the Groupon deal. But they said that I couldn't use it unless I had four people. I got the same deal at another restaurant in DC and they let me use it. I ended up ordering over $120 worth of food and left a fat tip for the waiter. This restaurant definitely... More
