“Impressive!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

I ate lunch here and absolutely loved the food and the view - I can't imagine a better view of the bay! The service was excellent as well. I was seated right away and the waitress was very friendly and helpful with recommendations. Would DEFINATELY come back here again if I'm ever in Petoskey again!

“Food, Service, Ambiance: Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

Went on a hotel recommendation and her advice was very accurate. The menu had some very diverse offerings ranging from stone oven-baked pizza to steak to paella to seafood.... all looked very interesting. I had the steamed mussels with chorizo meat in a delicious sauce as an appetizer and the margherita pizza as the entree---- both were very well prepared and excellent! Great bar area to enjoy a drink and either sit at the bar and watch the cooks prepare dishes with the open kitchen or sit at one of several tables and eat. With one more night left up here, i'll really have a very difficult time avoiding this place for dinner again even though this town is loaded with great restaurants.... Wow!

“Highly Recommened”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

Went back to the Bistro after stopping in when they opened....I liked it then and I Love It now...
Small menu but it is done right.....keep it simple with a few selections and do them well...And the Bistro does do them well. We sat in the top Balcony on a wonderful late September evening, overlooking downtown Petoskey-it was a very nice, relaxed evening.
Our server, Richard, was the BEST!!! A very pleasant young man that entertained us with some local stories and gave us good tips on the area.
I will definetly return there as the menu changes weekly.

“great selection, service, and specials!”

Devin was wonderful! We stopped in for a late lunch during happy hour, we didn't feel rushed, despite the fact that we were snacking on the patio and reading in the sun light. He had awesome suggestions, and such a fun personality.
