“Great Innovative Restaurant in a Strip Mall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

We found John Palmers Bistro to be a great innovative Restaurant. Our group sampled a variety of food items ranging from appetizers to salads to entrees to desserts. Every member of our party found each and every item to be innovative and excellent with great presentation. The exterior is very plain. The interior space is very inviting, intimate, clean, and relatively quiet. The rest rooms are 'upscale' and immaculate. The service was attentive, friendly and efficient. We found pricing to be somewhat expensive but given the quality of the food we found the value to be very good.
We can truly say this restaurant exceeded all our expectations.
We celebrated one of our party's birthday on this, our initial visit. The birthday girl plans on returning on her next birthday. We definitely plan on returning to celebrate special occasion(s)

“doesn't get any better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

I love this restaurant, the food the bar service, they guys in the kitchen, its one of my favorite places to dine out. Each and everytime we go there they make us feel like family and go out of there way to do so. They even make things not on the menu sometimes to make your experience even better.Its a great place to eat with a amazing selection of menu items.

Best fine dining restaurant in Lake County. The chef always has great menu choices and the service is top notch. Great location for a special evening out.
