Called ahead to make sure they where able to accommodate us & it was no problem. We have been here quite a few times & never been disappointed! China is always pleasant & we really enjoyed her cooking. Thanks China for all the great meals over the year.

I can't believe how accommodating this dining establishment is!! We heals our Christmas party here. China took care of everything.... band, food and the most amazing deserts. I can't say enough about the food and service. It is certainly a hidden gem. It is easy on the pocketbook. China didn't have liquor brands that everyone liked.....we were ok with that,... More

I have been frequenting the Bistro for many years and I have to say it is one of the most relaxing eating experiences I've ever had. The owner is knowledgable about wine parings and food pallet. My boyfriend and I celebrated our 3rd anniversary here with delicious food, wine and company. The owner makes you feel like family and right... More

My husband came across this little restaurant when he was searching for a business located in the area, What an awesome find! Great homemade food, fun and quirky decor, and fabulous owner. We had an absolutely wonderful lunch and plan to take our whole family there shortly.

My wife and I decided to try this restaurant for an evening meal to celebrate our Anniversary. As we were the only people there we were able to enjoy a delightful meal, sharing fresh homemade bread with oil and balsamic to dip the bread in, as well as a lovely plate of Italian cured meat, olives, cheese, and petite crackers....

I have been here a couple of times and it is interesting. The food is quite good although I believe the owner thinks it is fine dining whereas it is far from that. Inappropriate comments from the owner and overall strangeness make me uncomfortable every visit. The Valentine's day supper was described as "European seating", meaning that we were seated... More

I went there with a friend for Sunday breakfast/brunch yesterday and we were both happy with our choices. The food was excellent at a reasonable price compared with other breakfast restaurants around town. I will definitely go back.

This new little restaurant just hidden down the road from the silver buckle pub is an absolute gem. Great menu, excellent wine list and relaxing atmosphere. Staff were very friendly. The real italien ice cream and the fish of the day were especially good. I will definitely be returning. Makesure to call ahead and reserve to avoid disappointment. Well worth... More
