“Nice family run cafe with a great wine store”
Reviewed May 5, 2011

My home and office are just a few minutes from the Royal Hawaiian, which means a few stops per month for anything from a coffee to lunch to several bottles of wine.

The restaurant is run by a very sweet family that makes every effort in their service to make you feel like being at someones home. The service can be slow given the small staff and many hats they wear, but I give them credit for putting a sign up on the front door that warns you of this. They have great pizzas and usually have wonderful soups too. I was hooked on this tomato and gorgonzola for quite a while. The place is in a newer office park and is nicely decorated. The only challenge we have had as patrons is the ever-changing operating hours - that can make stopping in without checking the website a challenge.

Next door, Clyde operates a wine co., which has an excellent selection of wines from throughout the world. The value on these wines are quite good and includes consultation from Clyde, who has not failed me yet. I have even ordered a few big dollar bottles from him with excellent success. I probably patronize the wine side more than the restaurant.

Overall a sweet family that runs a nice little cafe filled with good food, homemade deserts and hundreds of bottles of fantastic wine!

“Incredible!!!”
Reviewed May 5, 2011

The Bistro is truly Prescott's best kept secret. Their food is absolutely amazing and the service always friendly and personal.
I don't the like the "Date of Visit" button above because I have been to this restaurant many (many, many) times and love it even more every time I visit.

Lynn, Clyde and kids- you are marvelous. Thank you for offering such an incredible dining experience.

“Excellent dining experience”
Reviewed May 4, 2011

We have been dining regularly at The Bistro since we moved into the Prescott area four years ago.

The Bistro is a family owned and operated cafe which emulates a European style Bistro. The first thing you see as you enter The Bistro is a sign stating: "We serve slow food". Of course they do not modify their menu. Each dish is complete in itself and deleting ingredients degrades the overall quality of the food. If one wants an underdone slab of ground-up beef, then it is best if they patronize McDonalds or Jack in the Box. Americans brought up with fast food mentality do not appreciate or understand the European tradition of dining as exemplified at The Bistro. When we dine at the Bistro, We enjoy the food, the atmosphere, and conversation for a minimum of two hours.

In a nutshell: the food is superb and the family that owns and operates the Bistro are great.

“Great food in friendly, casual atmosphere”
Reviewed May 4, 2011

My wife and I are residents of Prescott and are familiar with and have tried most of the small restaurants in town. We dine at The Bistro often because of its cozy, friendly atmosphere and very good food and wine. Try one of their excellent pizzas or salads for lunch. The Greek style "Masterpiece" salad is a special favorite of ours. Go next door and see Clyde for a fine, reasonably priced wine to go with your meal. Enjoy.
