Europeans eat outside at every possible opportunity, and the Bistro's terrace, overlooking the sweeping grounds of the resort, was exceptionally lovely on a soft summer night.

Its a great place to just have a quick but high quality meal whether you are a guest there or not. Service is great, you can sit indoors or out, food quality is great. They have a smallish menu but there are a lot of options.

Smaller menu than the formal restaurant but offered casual environment. Food and service were good. Had some questions on the menu and the wait staff didn't have the answer. Some items listed ingredients on menu that were not on plate when received and others did not list items that were on the plate. Offered indoor and outdoor seating as well... More

Perfect for a cocktail to enjoy in your room or a sandwich for a light and casual meal. We tried both, two thumbs up!

My husband and I stopped in the Bistro at Boars Head Inn before dinner and enjoyed a cocktail and wine. Service was very good and friendly, but the drinks/wine are a bit overpriced. By the time we left we had both had 2 drinks each and our tab was almost $70.00. It was worth it, but next time we'll stick... More

The grilled chicken breast w/Gouda cheese sandwich was great. The atmosphere in the Bistro was nice. It was quite enough for conversation with the folks I was dining with but not so quiet that conversations interrupted other guests.

Dined only once, ordered drinks and had to explain how to make the drink. Our server Ovi was wonderful, asked all the correct questions about the drink and it was made to perfection. The next day we returned to Bistro 1834 and Ovi was our server again. She knew which drink we would order, she made it herself and it... More

My husband and I stayed at the Boar's Head Inn for 4 nights and had the chance to check out Bistro 1834 a couple of times. Their nachos were delicious (they pay attention to detail and quality ingredients) and they make a mean dirty martini. We look forward to going back the next time we're in town.
