We visit Hermann annually for our anniversary. The trip is not complete without a visit to the Black Walnut Bistro. I have never had a bad meal there. The service is always fantastic. Shout out to Cindy, our server! She was wonderful.

This was by far the best meal my husband and I have ever had! You can custom order your pasta to meet your needs, which is PERFECT for a picky girl like me. I also had a Pina Colada sangria. My lips are still watering for another drink. :) I cannot wait to go back to this place. Please ask... More

This place was exceptional. We had a great upbeat waiter Joel, who made our dinning experience enjoyable. We had an appetizer that was to die for and the homemade pasta was heaven.

Had a nice dinner. We had crab cakes for appetizer and split the Rib-eye stroganoff meatballs. They were quite good. We also split the truffle macaroni and cheese. It was just okay, nothing special. Our waiter was attentive and effective. We also enjoyed our sangrias, although they weren't terribly strong.

It started with Joel greeting us and then seating us. It was 6pm and the restaurant was empty, but it began to fill up. Joel was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic over the menu and how the food was prepared. Joel was also very accommodating when it came to my order, I wanted an entree not listed on the menu, but...

This was a bit pricey but since we were celebrating my birthday - we decided to splurge. The zucchini appetizer was fantastic and so was my Chicken Carbonara pasta (homemade pasta with a great bite to it). My husband ordered the ribeye which came with a side of Mac & Cheese. It was ordered medium rare and was cooked perfectly.... More

Cindy was a fabulous server and made our anniversary dinner special. The food was exquisite also! We had heard from our BandB owner about how good Black Walnut Bistro was and to see Cindy and she was absolutely right!

This place was recommended to us by our cottage owner. It had a nice laid back atmosphere and the service was really good. the waitress provided several examples for food and drink. I had the chicken carbonara and was scraping the bowl when I was done. It was great. My wife had a ribeye and thought it was really good.... More
