It was terrific. The restaurant was recommended by a local shop owner. Wonderful homemade pimento cheese along with homemade crackers. Outstanding! One of us had a turkey club. Everything was fresh and quite tasty. One of us had fish and chips. While the fish was excellent, the portion was small. That is my only complaint. We will g ... read more

Everything about this place-- the food, the ambiance, and the workers was all amazing. My husband and I are out of towners staying in Black Mountain for our Asheville trip. The Bistro is only seating outside right now because of COVID but it couldn't have been better. The weather was perfect with a view of the mountains.

This is the one restaurant we always stop here for lunch or dinner when we are in the Black Mountain area It is a very nice setting, we always sit outside under the beautiful trees. The food is always delicious and served by friendly and attentive servers. Look forward to our next return.

Lovely atmosphere
Loved the slightly upscale atmosphere. We had the pimento cheese appetizer which was generous in size and quite good. The gnocchi with shrimp, scallops, mahi and vegetables was delicious. Service was friendly and wonderful. Nice place for a special dinner.

Excellent food
This restaurant is a small cozy bistro. Their steaks are fantastic--their serving sizes are large. Great dessert menu! It's a little surprising that they have paper tablecloths and napkins, that downgrades it a bit.

Visited while in town for a Spartan Trail race. The menu has a good variety. The server suggested their in-house honey mustard dressing for dipping sweet potato fries. Taking her suggestion, we found it to be fantastic. Highly recommend.

One of my favorite places to eat in Black Mountain! The food is delicious, and my personal favorite is the wrap with strawberries, goat cheese, and chicken. Wonderfully large outdoor patio area for sitting outside, and close to downtown. Definitely recommend if you’re in town.

Fun Lunch Trip
Wanted to visit here while we were in town. It was good. We enjoyed the ambiance of the bistro. The food was good but not amazing. We enjoyed it and would return.

Always great food here for us at least the last 20 years or more. This time we had 32 choir members from Beverly Hills Baptist Church in Asheville with us. We all enjoyed it very much The Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie was our unanimous choice.

Amazing food and service! My filet mignon was cooked perfectly, and perhaps one of the best cuts I have had in years. Asparagus was crisp and fresh, potatoes creamy to the senses, and instead of being heavy and overwhelming they where cloud-like in texture and sat well as a whole with the meal. Server was knowledgable and adept, and ... read more

Way overcrowded on a Saturday around noon in October, but what can a local expect in a tourist town? The food was decent but the service a bit slow. We asked to move tables because a large party was really loud and my wife and I couldn't hear each other talk, so beware where you sit! Unless, of course, you and your spouse don't care ... read more

The fried green tomatoes come with a potato pancake that alone are to die for but the overall dish was so yummy. The fried zucchini was also delicious and they have quality ranch. I got the scallops with a fruit salsa appetizer as a meal and was so happy with my choice. They came with corn fritters that were a little dry but not bad.

Excellent dishes prepared fresh every day. Polite, attentive staff. A welcome respite from the crowded, over hyped Asheville dining schene. The patio is the place to dine, weather permitting. Always a highlight of our time in Swannanoa / Black Mountain.
