We ate here late on an August evening, based on the TA reviews and weren't disappointed. The crab soup and bread were very good and we enjoyed our crab cakes. The eclectic interior design, with all the lighting and mirrors made the restaurant very pretty after dark. The well-spoken young waiter who served us was very accommodating to our requests.... More

My in-laws were visiting from out of state and wanted to try a good local spot for dinner. I chose The Bistro because of the TA reviews. My family and I showed up and it didn't appear to be anyone else dining there. We were also unsure what door to use to enter, we were instructed by a sloppy, cigarette... More

My family had my bridal shower here and it was so nice. The staff were so accommodating and the food was great. Great place for your small and intimate event.

Absolutely wonderful. We got the soup special (crab soup) and I wished I had gotten the bowl instead of the cup. I had the farmers sandwich with a side salad and everything was great. My kids were able to half the hamburgers and fruit and they both finished there plate. Would definitely come here again when we visit Virginia.

Who thought visiting a 1930's era gas station building in old town Petersburg would be so much fun. Food was hot,delicious and tasty. Service was fantastic. Great find.

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.

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
