Great fine dining in Findlay, OH. Very attentive wait staff and nice selection for varied tastes. The appetizer of pears wrapped in bacon was wonderful, as was the pasta with chicken, artichokes, mushrooms and pine nuts and the pasta topped with salmon. The short rib entrée.was very good, but too pricey for only one rib.

Decor was very nice but a little dark! The waitress was nice but did not ask if we wanted refills on our drinks. Also when our lunch came out there was burnt edges on the pizza we ordered and we said something to the waitress but she didn't offer to do anything about it! Food was good and a lot... More

We drove over an hour, arrived early, talked with a server and he said it opened at 5, we explored stores etc. Returned and waited with others when finally we were told they were closed because of a private party, disappointed extremely. Even more disappointing was the food at the Findlay Inn, not good food.

We always really enjoy The Bistro. We usually choose between Bistro and Rossili's. Bistro has GREAT drinks and appetizers. My scallops with cauliflower puree and raisin chutney were so tasty. Service and atmosphere is always very good and we love the new decor. We will be back :)

We had friends visiting from out of state and wanted to treat them to a great meal. Bistro always fits that bill. We were not disappointed and they continue to exceed our expectations. We made a reservation to be safe but didn't really need it. We were seated promptly and we had the best waitress. She is very effective and... More

The ambience surrounds you immediately...the staff is well trained greeting you with enthusiasm with a level of excitement to serve( a point missing in many establishments ). The talented chef mixes flavor creativity and the meals : delicious! The tiramisu without a doubt the best I have... More
