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.

We stopped while traveling and found Bistro 70 online. The wait staff, hostess, chef, and bartender were very gracious and professional. Wonderful service. The food was superior and very carefully done. The appetizer choices and presentations have a lot of style. My grouper, thick and moist, had a nice picante zing to the sauce that hit the perfect flavor note. My husband's gnocchi and sausage was down-homey and hearty with fluffy gnocchi dumplings. Warning, though: don't go for conversation and warm ambience on a Friday night unless you enjoy yelling to be heard and hearing loud squeals as people enjoy themselves. The food deserves better than that. Perhaps some sound deadening wall treatments would help.

Our children & grandchildren took us to BISTRO 70 for our anniversary dinner on a Saturday evening. The atmosphere was average as we were seated next to the entrance to the restrooms. We were a party of 8. Not much ambiance. Service was slightly slow and I'm not sure why. We had reservations for 6:00 p.m. and they were not very busy yet. Everyone enjoyed their meal even though they were served in a staggered manner. Some had to wait a little longer than others. There seemed to be more people at the bar than the restaurant. We all agreed that we are willing to give this another try. I think I'd heard that the owner has discontinued his lunch service to focus more on the dinner menu. When I checked out their website recently, I noticed the menu has changed & it looks inviting.
