“Go! Go soon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Our first dinner was excellent. My bean soup was superb, and the enchiladas to die for. My husband's hushpuppies were light and spicy, and his steak excellent. What we didn't know was that portions are huge. For the second visit, we split salad and entree (delicious salmon) so we would have room for dessert. A very smart move. The bar is good, the wine list short but interesting. Highly recommend.

“Dinner at the Bistro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

We had a great dinner. I had the special - Florentine Flounder and husband had lamb pasta. Both were great. The best though was the dessert...dark chocolate/coconut creme brulee! Yummy! Service was great - Nick was our waiter for a large party of 13 and was very attentive and personable. An unexpected surprise in Staunton.

“Very Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Despite high reviews by others, we found this place to be just average. Our shaved prime rib sandwiches were good enough but nothing special (except a little gratuitous gristle). The service was fine, provided by the bar tender for a late lunch. Ambiance was so-so, more like a bar than a bistro. Value was fine. Not worth a special trip to Staunton, but not a bad place for light lunch.

“Delicious dinner in Staunton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

We had a delicious dinner. Our waiter Nick couldn't have been nicer or more efficient. Shrimp and Grits were about the best I have ever had. Huge shrimp. My wife's crab cakes were delicious (she said and I trust her). We will go back. Oh yeah. Reservations on line helped a lot!

“excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Food is delicious - much better than at the expensive, upscale restaurant in Williamsburg where I ate yesterday.
