“A Taste of The Big City!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

I always enjoy going to the Bistro! It suits many different occasions...may it be a cocktail reception, a more formal affair for a special birthday or a few drinks and apps in the bar with friends! The kiddos even enjoy it...best Mac & Cheese in town! The steak burger is amazing along with the pizzas! One cannit go wrong at The Bistro!

“Expensive, but very good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

We went on a business dinner here while in town for the oil conference this May. Since we weren't paying for it, we indulged ourselves with just about everything. The crab cakes were delicious, the potatos were the best, and the filet was very good.

Overall it was a very good experience, and if you have the money, well worth it.

“Always a Favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

This is one of Bismarck's nicest. Always good food and good service while maintaining a competetive price. Highly recommend for a date, business meeting, or night on the town.

“Good variety and interesting flavors.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

We decided to try something new and different so did some internet searching for restaurants in the Bismarck area by looking at menus. Bistro had an interesting selection and was something that my family hadn't tried before. We went there for lunch and enjoyed our time there. The meal was tasty the prices weren't bad for lunch. My sirloin for the wild rice steak salad was very tasty, but it had a "ribbon" of toughness running through it so part of it was not edible. The rest of my party enjoyed their meals as well. We were visiting from out of town, but would probably visit this restaurant on a return trip.
