The food is always top rate, but at times I have been in there with a group and getting a drink has taken a half hour or more. Even then, the wait time between the order and food can be lengthy, even when the place does not seem busy. Restaurant week last year was an exception, but we have been... More

Thank you for your feedback. To improve our service, was the slow service at the bar or in the dining room, and was this during Restaurant Week? Thanks again, for any clarification. Loren More

My girlfriend and I decided to come for dinner. The bartender Billie was so sweet and helped us decide what to order. No regrets at all, food and service were phenomenal! Great & comfortable place for my friend and I to hang out at. And a band on a Thursday? So great!

Visited this establishment while visiting with friends/family from Florida. The atmosphere was inviting.Music was very good & entertaining. But kudos goes out to chef Krissie..the food she presented was phenomenal. It looked good and it was just as tasty...Loved the fact that she was professional and prided herself in your culinary skills.

We went to Tranquil Bar and Bistro with friends for brunch. We have enjoyed dinner at Tranquil, and their brunch did not disappoint. Brunch offerings are a la carte, not buffet. The guys enjoyed Chicken and Waffles, a favorite of ours since Roscoe's. I relished the custom omelet with Gruyere cheese, peppers, and onions. Bloody Marys and constantly filled coffee... More

It's a bar, it's a bistro, it's a cool hangout. Owned by two great guys, friendly atmosphere, very popular with locals in the know even though the area is not the greatest but getting better all the time, thanks to entrepreneurs like those of Tranquil. Flavorful food, full bar, highly recommended.

We have visited this restaurant three times in the last 12 months. The food the first and the third was very good; the second, not so much. It is a nice, quiet atmosphere, which makes visiting with your fellow diners easy. The service is excellent! I'm sure we will visit again.

We left Binghamton four years ago and moved to North Carolina. One of the restaurants I missed the most was Tranquil. When we lived in Binghamton, we dined there often. On a recent visit, we returned to Tranquil on a Saturday evening. We were so happy that we chose to do so. Our server was friendly and efficient. I decided... More

It's been four years since I was last here, and Tranquil has not only maintained its quality, but has upgraded its menu and service. There were six of us, and the service could not have been friendlier or faster. Everything from the house salad to our main dishes was delicious, well-prepared and generously served. The prime rib was fantastic and... More

Went on a Friday, had reservations. Staff pleasant, however very very slow. Folks that sat after us got served. We had to ask for our salads. Dinner was very good, but we just finished for asked salad and dinner arrived. We noticed regulars got preference attention. Will not go back. Not worth it,

First time visiting Tranquil Bar & Bistro, which is located on the corner of Fayette & Pine St. This is not a good neighborhood so be forewarned. There is a small, really poorly maintained parking area directly across from the restaurant on Fayette St. Otherwise, you are stuck parking on the street. We arrived at 5 PM (restaurant opens at...

Sought-after destination for both locals and visitors who know it is well worth the trip to experience everything that only Tranquil can provide. Wonderfully creative cuisine, spectacular beverage menu, welcoming surroundings and attentive service.
