This was our first time at Bistro 26. Upon walking in, it was a great atmosphere and the person at the desk kindly took our 6:15 reservation. Then our server, Linda came. She began to rush us through ordering and didn't even tell us the specials. She was very kind and attentive to tables around us, but a different story... More

We had dinner here recently and had a very nice time. Our server was slow with our drink orders (and it wasn't very busy in the restaurant) but our meal was served in a much more timely manner. I had the crab cakes with sides - all delicious! The portions were generous and I would recommend this restaurant.

Wonderful dinner for the four of us. Great service. No wait like the chain restaurants. Reasonable price. Try the Mediterranean. Appetizer. So good with three different dips. Our meals were warm and delicious. Nice portion size, too.

My family and I visit Bistro 26 several times a year. They have great food for the adults as well as great daily specials and soups. They are also very accommodating to the kids with menu changes. Highly recommended.

We had dinner at Bistro 26 to celebrate our friend's birthday. Our waiter, Adam, was exceptionally nice & also patiently checked with the owner several times to accommodate our special requests -- one was for making one of the entrees suitable for a vegetarian. This restaurant has a very warm, appealing atmosphere & wonderful background music, which adds to the... More

While enjoying a three-day weekend in Erie, we took a chance on Bistro 26 as it was highly rated. It was a great decision! We enjoyed such a fine dinner that we returned the next day to try the lunch selections. Both meals were outstanding in every way. The waiters were pleasant but not intrusive, the atmosphere was conducive to... More

We absolutely loved this place for our anniversary dinner while on vacation in Erie. The Mediterranean sampler appetizer had the best hummus we have ever had. The artichoke bruschetta was delicious. I don't even like feta cheese, but I gobbled up the feta cheese dip, too! The salad was great and my pasta was wonderful! We raved about it so... More

We were looking for a restaurant close to our hotel, and noticed Bistro 26 on Tripadvisor. I'm so happy that we chose to eat lunch there, because it was delicious! Our server Laurin was very friendly, and answered our questions with ease. My husband ordered the American burger with seasonsed fries, and I ordered the chicken gyro with a side... More

Six of us dined at Bistro 26. All was outstanding! The food from A - Z could not have been better. The waitress was super. We all enjoyed all that was served to us. What an exciting meal!

My husband and I make a point to have lunch here when we are in Erie, which is about twice a year, and we have been going here for at least five years. We have taken family members here too when we have met them in Erie. I love the the windowed interior, the service, and the cleanliness of this... More
