We found out about Bistro109 on Groupon. We decided on a Saturday night, and made reservations for 8:00 p.m. We found easy parking on the street in front. It's located on a very quaint street near the courthouse in downtown Sevierville. When nearing the entrance, we were welcomed by good music playing on exterior speakers, and two charming small tables on the sidewalk, which looked inviting for a lunch on a warmer day...
Upon entering, we were greeted with a smile from the piano player, and absolutely beautiful decor. Our host came promptly, and we were seated immediately. Fresh ice water was poured into goblets by out waiter John, who introduced himself warmly. We chose an appetizer of fried green tomatoes, and we were left to decide from the beautiful and widely varied menu. While we waited and decided on our choice of entree', we enjoyed the piano music and atmosphere. The owners have indeed created a lovely environment for dining. Muted lighting, elegant black table linens, tasteful flowers and delicate accents truly make Bistro109 a class act.
John returned with a basket of fresh, warm rolls and a nicely sized portion of fresh dipping oil enhanced with a pesto/herb mixture. We enjoyed this and our fried green tomatoes immensely. The bread knots were delicious, as were the tomatoes. They came to us resting on a bed of field greens, topped with crumbled feta and caper berries. A swirl of flavored vinaigrette decorated the edges of the plate. Simply delicious and cooked to perfection.
We chose the ribeye with garlic & cheese mashed potatoes and green beans, and the shrimp and cheese grits as our main course. The steak was well seasoned, perfectly cooked and tender. The shrimp & cheese grits had huge jumbo shrimp surrounding the edges of the platter, which was literally filled to the edge with amazing cheese grits topped with more shredded cheese, andouille sausage pieces, bits of fresh tomato, and had a bit of a delicious broth to accent the flavors. Both dinners were presented beautifully, and were absolutely DELICIOUS.
Our waiter John was warm, personable and attentive, without over doing it. He was very genuine and made conversation easily with us for a few moments after dinner. We never wanted for anything while dining, whether it was a refill or a roll. He is definitely an asset to Bistro109, and he only added to the enjoyment of our newly found dining favorite.
Bistro109 gets a 5 stars out of 5 available from us! This is a place you'd be proud to take friends or have a business dinner. The prices and portions are excellent. If you have a smaller appetite--order the smaller portion plates. We chose the larger plates, he finished all of his and I ended up taking almost half of my shrimp & cheese grits home, but only because I was stuffed with what I'd already eaten.
