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...

Being lactose I tolerate made my brunch choice limited but, My spinach and salmon omelette was great. As the waiter was carrying out the meals the waffles looked magnificate due to presentation of the plates. I enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant . It had a warm and cozy feel to the place unlike chain restaurants in the Binghamton area.

We dined at Tranquil before going to TriCities Opera in Binghamton. We had a lovely dinner from start to finish. I had penne with scallops and spinach which was absolutely delicious. My husband had the duck special and enjoyed it. The glasses of wine were generous and my desert of creme brûlée was perfection. I ended my meal with a... More

I went alone to this nice little restaurant during 'restaurant week' when there are some very good deals and was really glad I did. The salad, entree (pork flambe), and dessert were all top quality. Because I had no reservation and was by myself, I ate at the bar and had a very attentive and pleasant server. All in all,... More
