“An unexpected find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

Made a reservation at the Hotel Wayne - 1202 Bistro is off the lobby. Large and comfortable dining in a 185 year old hotel with food prepared by a CIA trained chef was not what we expected. Food was great and had a nice twists in preparation - try the Chicken Napoleon if it's on the specials. Staff was a little slow on getting to us but were very apologetic for the delay. Our drinks came to us on the house with the manager's apology. All in all - A+ for atmosphere, attitude and authenticity.

“Nice Place to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

We enjoyed our meal at Bistro 1202. Service was okay, not great. We particularly enjoyed the Chicken Napoleon, a dish that featured chicken, spinach, garlic mashed potatoes with a basil cream sauce. My husband had the Tuna, (sushi grade) which was very good as well. Good sized servings,, and pleasant atmosphere. Excellent bread, too.

Stopped for a quick bite and beer. First visit so didn't know what to expect. Ate at bar.

Nice variety of tasty food from fancy to basics. All were very good.

Would recommend if you are passing through or are local.

“Dining Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

Try the filet mignon, french onion soup, and salmon.Filet was cooked perfectly, potatoes w/horseradish good, the spinach was tasteless and needed seasoning. Wine list not great...has a chardonnay, shiraz, & pinot noir (Hob Nob and Yellow Tail). Great atmosphere. Located in historic hotel. Service good. Reservations preferred but probably would have had a table without one.

“Quaint resturant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

Historic looking place. Food was very good! There is a up scale resturant connected to a causal dinning section which has a nice bar with a good beer selection. We had chicken sandwich with pesto, sliders, and wings, all was well prepared. Service was good and friendly. Only down side is a mildew odor, maybe due due to a rainy day.
