“USA at its best”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

this little Bistro is a must if you are in Black Mountain - the food is prepared fresh as you ask for it and the servings are huge 1 starter of chicken wings fed 3 adults and we had to take out the remainder of our main courses too good to leave well worth the money

“Yummy!”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Sweet atmosphere with great food. Appetizer of fried mushrooms was huge - that needs to be shared. Outdoor seating available also. Menu is primarily salads, sandwiches, and a nice little wine list, too. (Of course, I was there for lunch, so the dinner menu may be different). Service is really terrific - a group of very nice and personable ladies work there and want it to be a terrific experience for their customers.

“Plenty of good food at reasonable prices”
Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

You can count on Black Mountain Bistro to deliver good food at a reasonable price. The service is good and the menu has a good variety of selections. The salads were great with fresh ingredients and the salad dressings are very pleasing.

“Warm and cozy”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

A friend and I were in Black Mountain for a women's retreat and after scouring the charming shops of the mountain community on a cold and blustery February day decided to head for a restaurant for dinner. We decided on The Bistro and upon entering found a much welcomed warmth of not only atmosphere with its fireplace but with the "wait personnel". The menu was delectible with everything from southern favs of fried green tomatoes or zucchini to Baked Brie and strawberries. We decided (a very difficult decision because of the many tempting entrees) to just go with and share 3 appetizers. The Fried zucchini was wonderful and I really wanted the recipe, the baked brie and strawberries with flat bread did not disappoint and then we added the most fabulous chicken quessidilla I have ever had. No entree for us...this proved to be more then enough so I can't tell you about them except as they passed by us they all looked great! Home made meat loaf w/ the traditional mashed potatoes to pastas, burgers, salads and soups...and so much much more. A decent wine list, too! I will definately be going back my next trip up the mountain. Bon Appetite!

“Dinner with College Students”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

We had dinner at the Bistro last Saturday night with our daughter and her two house-mates who are all students at Warren Wilson College. We went up to visit and take some things she didn't have room for in her car from Christmas. We stopped first in Que Sera and were told that we could not get a table for 45 minutes to an hour due to several large parties in progress, although there were a number of tables empty. I got the impression that the hostess took a look at our college students and did not want them there, just an impression, but I am pretty good at reading the body language and "looks" of other people. But, that was fine.

We went a block up the street to The Bistro with our 3 college students and were seated right away. Our server was very nice, very professional and very good. My husband and I both ordered the Bourbon Trout. It was delicious, perhaps the best trout dish I have ever ordered. cooked perfectly, large, thick pieces of trout, seasoned very nicely and served hot. Our students were all pleased as well. They had Forest Berry Pie for dessert and raved about it.

We will definitely go back next time we are in Black Mountain.
