We attended a surprise birthday party, where the menu selection was predetermined. We had chicken breast, roasted potatoes and salad. Food was fine. Hot rolls were very good. Our server was excellent. Very attentive with drink refills. The side room was great for private parties. I did not see the menu so I can not speak on those items.

First visit is a bust. Seated next to a dirty broom and dust bucket and no one had the insight to remove them from the dining area. Most unappetizing.

Had lunch at Bistro 127 in Hickory, NC. The food was okay but nothing to rave about. The service was slow which was weird since there was hardly anyone there. Our server was very polite and friendly. The Bistro itself is clean and well maintained. Maybe we just came on a bad day. 😕

My husband and I took 2 friends to Bistro 127 last night to celebrate a birthday. Ashley Spencer was our waitress and the service could not have been better. She was knowledgeable of the menu and gave wonderful suggestions. She even brought out a dessert and sang to the birthday boy. We had a wonderful time and the food was... More

I had came before and had the chicken and waffles and it was great but I went with a friend last night and we both got the chicken and waffles and it was subpar at best. The chicken was way too done. The breading was too crispy and just fell into pieces. Also the chicken was dry. There was hardly... More

First time at Bistro 127 - we loved it! Our waitress Ashley made wonderful suggestions. We had the bacon wrapped dates and fried zucchini - both really good! The salmon and risotto were delicious. My son loved the pizza. We had beignets dipped in chocolate and carmel for dessert. Wonderful meal!

We ate at Bistro 127 at around 5:30 PM on a Saturday evening. The place was practically empty. The menu looked good, but the food was average at best. The waitress was not very good - she failed to listen to what was requested, and was slow to return to our table, and we were the only people that she... More

If you've quenched your thirst and want to move on to a bit more of a relaxed atmosphere, just walk through in inside doorway where you'll be greeted to the dining area of what is known as... More

Had past by several times, but found good reviews when searching for a place to take out of town guests and decided to try it out ahead of time. Glad we did! Started with brunch on a Saturday. It was so good that we went back for dinner with our daughter. Between the 2 meals we had 2 different appetizers... More

Just left Bistro. We had a wonderful time. Our waitress Ashley took very good care of us, she was attentive and knowledgeable in regards to menu selections. Enjoyed the atmosphere even though it was full of patrons you could carry on a conversation and did not feel crowded.. We all enjoyed our food selections.. Fish, Lasagna, Shrimp, hats off to...
