You dont have to love wine to enjoy a nice meal here. In fact, we loved eating at the Bistro. The staff offered friendly and attentive service. There was nice variety on the menu from pizza to pasta to chicken/beef dishes The food is all prepared from scratch. Our meals were absolutely delicious. We thought the prices were very reasonable with most between $8 to $13, adding appetizers, desserts, and drinks will make it add up. There is a large selections of wines and also some nice brews on tap and more in bottles. We had to try the Monte Python Holy Grail Ale on tap! The location was nice with the large windows reflecting the lights from down town. We were told the nightly specials are always an excellent choice. Our group enjoyed the Salmon of the evening which was so moist and flavorful, we also had the Cellar Porkchop with apply brandy juis, the sliced Cellar Beef with mushroom ragout. Finally, the rib eye, though thin and just 10oz was cooked perfectly to my specifications and was mouth watering delicious. We couldn't pass up the layered lemon cake or the chocolate mousse cake for dessert. Can't wait until we can come back. With the variety, prices and excellent service, this is absolutely the best food in Lenoir, so our reccomdation is don't let it be just for special occasions.
