This is you’re very average restaurant. The food is just OK. Nothing special. It’s in a very convenient location.

This place has changed it's name to Wood. The pizza was acceptable but the atmosphere is a little dark and dreary. The service, again, was acceptable but certainly nothing special. If we ever eat here again we'll just order the pizza to go.

No longer exists as Bistro127. It is in the same location on Hiway 127 also known as North Center Street. It is now called Wood

Bistro 127 has absolutely the BEST pizza I have ever eaten. Great choices of salads and a really good wine selection. Great place for lunch or dinner.

I went with a group of pastors for lunch. The sevice was excellent, the food was tasty and hot and the price was reasonable. The restaurant was clean and the atmosphere was pleasant. The menu offered many choices and they offered daily specials. There was...adequate parking at lunch time.More

My wife and I often go to Bistro 127 as "Date Night". All the various dishes we have tried have been excellent/. Staff very friendly and courteous. Prices are moderate.

Our first time here, Wood formerly Bistro 127. Loved the cozy atmosphere, the bar area was fabulous, lots of ambiance.. We ordered the Pepper and Sausage wood fired pizza and it was excellent! We also split the huge pastrami sandwich which had a fabulous slaw...dressing and mustard on it...decent beer selection, wine selection could be a lot better - just house wines (no sauvignon blanc) So many food selections...We will be back!!More

Went to Wood aka Bistro 127 for lunch with friends. Was very excited since none of us have been here since they switched to a wood burning pizza restaurant. Also, the website photos made the food look delicious. However, our experience was below average. Our...waitress was not knowledgeable about menu or drinks. The food was not worth the money. I ate the Jerk chicken sandwich which was under seasoned and just okay. My friend ate the Hot Zone salad which had a weird flavor to the chicken. Both chicken meals were below par and the chicken tasted like it had been frozen not fresh. My other friend ate the club and was pleased. We all tried the blueberry creme brule and no one liked it. My friend referred to it as blueberry chalk...Yum! Was very disappointed with the whole experience and doubt we will be back.More

We just celebrated our 5 year Anniversary and our friends and Family surprised us with a party at this restaurant . We had this private room in the back and it was charming and elegant. The food was fresh and delicious and served over 20...people. What really made this night perfect was the staff. The waitress that helped our party from start to finish was amazing. Ask for Kristen if you are planning an event here. She made sure everyone had exactly what they needed and went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly. We could not have asked for a better night! Thank you to all at Bisto 127.More

Looking at the menu, I was a little tentative and afraid that there were a lot of meat items and not many vegetarian items. I ended up ordering one of their gourmet french toasts. I was afraid that it'd be too sweet, since it had..."light" syrup on it and American food like that is usually too sweet anyway. But, it was great! I liked that they used frozen fruit rather than fresh fruit- frozen fruit adds to the syrup and is a better texture for french toast than fresh fruit. My partner's meat breakfast was good, and they use great quality bread. The server was really nice! The interior is quite "rustic", but it doesn't go overboard, which is easy to do with that theme. I would definitely go back if driving through Hickory again. My only problem is that they should have more vegetarian breakfast options!More

A half of a small almost topless veggie pizza and nothing else for nearly $9.00? That might be OK if the pizza was extra special, but it was rather ordinary. But the most unfortunate thing was our group of 10 were the only customers in...the place for a late lunch yet half of us waited nearly 30 minutes to be served. It seems half of us were served, then we were told the oven had malfunctioned and had to be reheated to prepare the pizza for those of us not yet served. A member of our group said she had dined there once before and the same thing happened then! The place is nice, those working there all were pleasant and attentive. Maybe pizza isn't the thing to order here. But I don't think I'll be back.More

We come here once a month or so for breakfast..... always fresh..... the G2protein breakfast is my favorite.... and hubby loves the breakfast plate (with lots of options). Their brewed coffee is fabulous.....I get a few fill ups while we are there. Lunch and dinner...are great too..... and Bootleggers (connected whiskey bar) is a great place for dinner or late night live music. We've been coming for years..... and never a compliant. Great goumet options.. Thanks Regina for taking care of us this morning.More
