Gluten free bread option!

Great atmosphere, reasonably priced. Fresh tasting, and we were thrilled that there was a gluten free bread option and a knowledgeable waitstaff that was comfortable answering food allergy questions. The hardest part was deciding what to order.

Wonderful meal here recently. Menu is imaginative and well executed. Service was perfect! Thoroughly enjoyed it and will return if we are ever in the area again.

Recently visited this bistro for lunch during the week with my wife. I left work to meet her for lunch and was on a tight lunch schedule and needed to get back to work within a reasonable amount of time. The general attitude of the staff that I interacted with was calm, casual and no sense of a lunch time... More

While antiquing and sightseeing in the Petersburg area, we stopped at this cute little place for lunch. This place is charming and quirky, fancy, yet comfortable. Made a for a great "fancy" lunch for my daughter and I. The service was prompt and attentive and the food was delicious. The small portion I left with was consumed before we made... More

The Bistro is one of our favorite places to eat in Olde Towne Petersburg. Excellent cuisine, excellent service and excellent atmosphere.

I would give Bistro a 3.5 out of 5.0, so I'll round up to 4. The service was prompt and friendly. My boyfriend's glass was empty a few times, but I blame that on the crystal glass and not the server necessarily. The decor was cute with mismatched tables and chairs, large mirrors, old books, and a beautiful chandelier. Unfortunately,... More

My wife and I came in to eat here last night. The atmosphere was nice. It seems as if they are going for a redneck-chic appeal whereby none of the chairs match in the dining room. That's fine. What wasn't fine was the stank of stale mothballs coming from dusty air traps. It could have been that or the rain... More

First let me say that the food as delicious. And the server was pleasant and very attentive...but if you are a single diner in the age range of 20-40 this is not the place for you to eat. The atmosphere was suited more for the older crowd . That's not a bad thing, but it wasn't what I was expecting... More

Passing through Petersburg on our way north and tried Trip Advisor suggestions for a dinner stop. We tried it out and we were not dissappointed. The ambience was fun and clean, the menu was diverse and the staff fun and attentive. We tried the crab dip appetizer. It was creamy and warm and very tasty. Dinner special with the pork... More

We passed through Petersburg several months ago and wanted to stop for a bite. We came across The Bistro accidentally through an app. We loved it so much, we have returned every time we go through Petersburg! We have visited 4 times and order something different each time. NEVERTHELESS disappointed!
