“Our "go-to" place when good food is desired!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Christopher's Bistro is a great place whether you want to sit at the bar, have a burger & a couple of adult beverages or if you want to spend time with good friends and have a four course meal. The food is consistently good, the drinks are well made and delicious, the wine list is very decent and the service is always good, sometimes even great and the owners are lovely people. I love visiting them and hope they stay around for a long, long time!

“The best service in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

The service from everybody that works here is second to none. The food is delicious. Everything from burgers to gourmet meals. My husband and I have been here many times and loved everything. Do yourself a favor and give it a try. You won't be sorry.

“A Diner Really”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

It's not so much a bistro but a diner with a wine list.

The fare is mostly burgers and sandwiches with chips.

The wine list is ok. The service is ok. The food is ok. The decor is well sorta ok.

The place is average at best.

“A Hidden Gem for sure!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

I have eaten here twice in the last month and both times the food was excellent, especially the salmon. It was a little pricey for the entrees but worth it as they were so delicious. The burgers were great as well. Friendly service and nice atmosphere. Cant wait to go again- wish it was closer to where I live

“Great Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

My wife and I were staying overnight in Chester, NY while a little shopping trip to Woodbury outlets. After reviewing the various restaurants available in the area, we settled on Christopher's Bistro. Everything about this small strip mall establishment was excellent. Service, atmosphere and food!!! I had the Cajun soft shell crabs which were outstanding and my wife just had a hankerin' for a burger. It was one of the best. We were in Vegas a couple weeks ago and ate burgers at GR Burgers (Gordon Ramsay Restaurant) They made a decent burger, but this little gem in Chester, NY, blew them out of the water with their burger. Enough said. When in the area, eat at Christopher's Bistro, period.
