Very good food for a reasonable price. The soup was delicious and the 1/2 Sandwich was quite large and delicious, too. Nice wine selection.

My aunt was visiting from Florida so we drove to McCall for the day to show her the Fall colors in the mountains. Stopped for lunch at Bistro 45. There is beautiful outdoor seating, but it was too cool for my warm-blooded aunt. The seating inside is limited, but we had no problem finding a table. The menu is mostly... More

We often go to this wine bar, which is great at any time of year. Bocce ball courts in the courtyard in the summer, mulled wine in the winter, and great cozy atmosphere any time. Food is light small plates, but ideal for eating while having a bottle or two - e.g. hummus and crudites, baked brie and garlic crostini,... More

Was in McCall with my wife for a wedding. The first night here was a Thursday. I decided to dine at Bistro 45 for the wine and the online menu. When we got to the restaurant it was more of a tapas place as we did not see anything on the menu which was given to us that appeared on... More

We loved this place. Bistro 45 means it is equally between North Pole and Equator. You eat outside and can play with some outdoor bowling game. We had happy hour wine for $4, and the glass was FULL. See picture where I spilled some on their menu because it was so full. We enjoyed our Baked Brie. We will stop... More

Perfect place for lunch outdoors......bocci ball court can keep your children entertained while you enjoy the extensive wine selection. The daily soup unusual and always good. The clams super. Sitting inside is cozy in winter. Dogs are welcome on the patio.

Great place for a very nice bottle of wine at reasonable prices, can't beat a $5 corkage fee either. As for the food, well the only item we had was a hummus plate. It came with toasted baguette, cucumber slices and celery sticks. The hummus tasted like it was straight out of a plastic tub, red in color and flavorless.... More

We loved the outdoor seating area here. It was very quaint with nice spacious tables. Though the menu was short, the food was interesting and mostly well prepared. The one odd meal was a grilled cheese, which was open faced on a roll. The cheese was a bit overcooked but still edible, though my granddaughter did not like it or... More

Several of us gathered for dinner at this hidden oasis in McCall. You enter through the same driveway as the venerable McCall Hotel. Although there is no lake view, there is lush foliage and a baci ball court! We ate outside on the patio. You order your own food and drink inside, and they bring the food out to you.... More

We had 13 people in our group including 5 small children and they were able to accommodate us at a couple of their large tables. The atmosphere is amazing. I love the outdoor area which is surrounded by trees. Very calm and relaxed. The food, service and beer were amazing!
