“Can't beat the "Cheap Date Night"”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

Nicely done everything, all the time -- the food, service, atmosphere, and theme nights, especially the Wednesday special when you can get a great meal with wine and dessert for a very reasonable price. Lunches are outstanding, too. Cannot beat this bistro! Just wish we lived closer.

“Expensive, but worth it”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

It's not the most romantic location on the outside (just down the street from Kent's "Auto Mile"), but once inside, the Bistro on Main is a wonderful place for a little cozy fine dining.

I've always found the food well-prepared - from the appetizers and risottos to the desserts. The specials truly are special - things you wouldn't find on a menu in most restaurants.

It can be a little pricy. That said, I have to admit, I don't mind paying $40 for a well-prepared osso bucco.

One thing to keep in mind is that this is a fine dining establishment. They expect you to linger over the food and the service is paced as such.

“Outstanding food!!!”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

The service, the food, and the atmosphere. The food came hot. Although they were known for their burgers my husband had a pulled pork sandwich.
