The decor was nice, but the food and service were a step below mediocre. Service was slow and orders were confused. Food was cold. Poor wine selection. Avoid this restaurant.

A colleague and I attended a conference at VSU and ate here for lunch. The service was great. The food was fresh and delicious. I had the salad trio with chicken salad, a house (spring mix) salad and fruit. Yum!!!

This was our first time eating there (I found a coupon on Groupon) and we enjoyed it very much. The menu had something for everyone and 5-6 specials in addition. The Cosmo that I had was very good, the desserts were delicious, and the bread was to die for. I would recommend this restaurant for an evening out to DINE...do... More

Visited for dinner during a Civil War tour. Food was excellent, beautifully cooked and presented. Staff were courteous, attentive and charming. The restaurant itself, which amazingly was originally a gas station!, is full of character and a very comfortable, pleasant place to eat.

Russell, the owner and chef is a wonderful host. I have had many lunches here and have been to many special events. It is a perfect place for a shower, luncheon, or reception!

Was recently there for dinner with friends on a Wednesday night. The atmosphere is definitely eclectic and might not be up to everyone's tastes, however, we found it charming. The menu is diverse with some interesting items on it. It was a disappointment though that they had run out of their soup of the day. I'm always surprised and a... More

Can't even begin to say all the good things about this restaurant. I just love this restaurant. We always have delicious food, love the atmosphere and the people working there. We always have a great time when we dine there. Wonderfully diverse menu, something for everyone. Love the décor, very chic. Prices reasonable, food delish, staff wonderful.

I can't say enough about this locally owned restaurant in the historic Old Towne section of Petersburg. If you've ever eaten at this establishment, then you have met the owner, Russ. I can't count how many times I've been to the Bistro. From lunches with a friend, to parties with organizations of 25+ people and consistently the Bistro handles them... More

My experience suggests that a metropolitan population of around 50,000 is necessary to sustain a fine dining establishment. There are smaller cities which enjoy fine dining success, but they tend to be in college towns, tourist havens and the like. I was drawn by the reviews in the hopes of finding a hidden gem of fine dining. Such was not... More
