Description: In April of 2004 I opened my first restaurant, Bistro70, located at 70 N. Saint Clair in the heart of Historic Downtown Painesville. Bistro70’s mission from the beginning has been to provide a complete dining experience, which includes an innovative menu, a friendly and well trained staff, all brought together in a warm & trendy atmosphere that exudes energy and comfort. The mission has been achieved and continues to thrive. Over the past 9 years, Bistro70 has become one of the favorite restaurants of Lake County diners, and is a perennial winner of local and regional awards including News Heralds “Most Romantic Restaurant”, Fox8 Hot List Top 10 restaurant in Cleveland for the last 3 years, (#2)2009, (#3) 2010, (#9) 2011, Nation “Table Top Design Award” winner 2004, featured on "Dinner and a Movie " with David Moss, John Long (PD) “Tasty 20”. Today Bistro70 continues its dedication to my vision of providing the complete dining experience and offers something for everyone through its diverse seasonal and locally sustainable menu. As one of the early pioneers of the revitalization of Painesville, I support the local community and continue to strive to make Bistro70 the perfect dining destination in the area.

I was very pleased with the food. Tammy our server was excellent and very attentive. The decor is pleasant not too fancy or too casual. Our family of 4 enjoyed our dinner. It isn't cheap but it was a special evening out. The only negative thing I have to say is the hostess pointed us to our table when I told her we had a reservation. She literally never moved from the hostess stand and then pointed to a table and said" there's your table". Very classless. Hire a new hostess.

It’s quite clear that this person was at the wrong place, I have been eating at Bistro 70 for quite some time, the food is magnificent, the servers are fantastic and the chef himself always comes out to greet everyone that comes in. For you to say the food was terrible and to never go there is out right false, next time you better make sure you are not at Burger King or Long John Silvers.

Do not go here...went on a weekend and both the bar and restaurant areas were busy. I ordered the sea scallops for $26.00 ...plate came with 3 med-sized scallops... tasted too strange to eat...they were on special so maybe they were hours away from going bad...boyfriend ordered flat-iron steak...smothered in some type of gravy...tasted like liver. The bread was stale. Just an all around crappy overpriced lame restaurant.
