Description: Bistro 109 in Historical DowntownBy Dustin ManningWelcome ….. It is my desire that you delight in the atmosphere, while enjoying the fresh food we prepare for you with tender care. From the time you enter off the streets of downtown, into this historical building, to the time you leave, I want you to relax, forget life’s troubles and worries; let your mind feel at ease. Truly take in and bask in the sights, sounds, scents, tastes and textures throughout. Please enjoy and drift away even for just one moment. Happiness and Blessings!

“Unexpected find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

We used a coupon to dine at Bistro 109 on a recent trip to the Smokies. We were so very pleased. Great food and atmosphere. Good for a romantic evening, but we understood from our innkeepers that it is a popular lunchtime place. The next time we go that way, we will be sure to stop by.

“Great service and amazing food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I had a groupon for this restaurant and used it while on vacation. We were very impressed with the food and extensive menu options. The prices are very reasonable and portions were large. We will definitely return next time we are in town!

“Substitutions?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Just got back from having brunch.
Food was good but our server, Kyle, was not up to par. We understood the "no substitution" policy and that was not the problem. What was an issue is that we didn't want the salad on every reorder. We asked to delete it from the plate but was told "NO SUBSTITUTION". So it was left on the plate to be thrown out. I thought we would save the owners the cost of this useless waste. I would think twice about dining here again because I can't see supporting a restaurant that likes to throw away their profit.

“Best Kept Secret in the Smokies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

From the outside, this restaurant looks like an ordinary hole in the wall, but it is beautifully decorated. The food is reasonably price, varied in selection, and very good. We have started going there for lunch on a weekly basis and are never disappointed. In an area filled with touristy chain restaurants, Bistro 109 is a remarkable oasis. Highly recommended to locals and tourists alike. Venture out from the tourist traps and see the quaint downtown in Sevierville, enjoy a great little restaurant experience.

“A Hidden Treasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Recommended by several hotel staff. We had a wonderful dinner, with unique menu selections, in a refined setting. Unfortunately the piano player wasn't in that night, but could imagine that would have really added to the ambiance.

So please to hear good reviews from other businesses in the area such as the hotel staff you spoke of. But evenmore important we are so pleased you enjoyed your wonderful meal prepared just for you. It is very unfortunate that our piano player was unable to make it that night but we hope you will come if you are even in the area and here one of our wonderful pianist soon.
