Great experience
I had the crab cakes. They did not disappoint. Large amounts of crab with great seasoning and very fresh. Flatbread pizza for an appetizer started off the meal correctly. The goat cheese added a great balance. My son had the grouper sandwich and stated it was one of the best sandwiches he has ever had. My wife had the stuffed trout a ... read more

A great dinner spot! The outdoor seating and fire pits will draw you in and the drinks will get you to stay! I liked everything I got here and the atmosphere was so great I will definitely be back!!

Cute restaurant (want to steal ornaments on outside Christmas tree -so cute). Today we had fried green tomatoes for an appetizer...the potato cake on the bottom stole the show. After that a bowl of chili-not spicy but thick and hearty. Shrimp and grits-very flavorful (little too salty) was not expecting a grit cake-a bit dry. Backyar ... read more

I had the fish and chips at the Bistro in Black Mountain. Very moist, well prepared piece of fish. The chips were G.B.D. and not overly cook or greasy. Very nice meal.

Let me tell you, EVERYTHING was on point at Black Mountain Bistro. First of all, you have got to get the fried green tomatoes. It's an appetizer but could easily be a full meal & that doggone potato cake in the middle was to die for. It was such a pleasant little surprise because I didn't even think I would like it. Those were honest ... read more

Excellent ambiance and service while seated outside. Delicious food and tasty seasonal drink. Menu has a good selection of food and drinks. I will be back!

This place is pretty good. I had the meatloaf and that was a mistake. It was dry and probably a few days old but my folks had the fish and chips and shrimp and grits and they really enjoyed theirs. Will definitely go back and try something else.

Delicious resturant
This cozy restaurant has delicious food and we stop here most every trip when we visit Black Mountain. The food is consistent and delicious. The staff are friendly and the prices reasonable. It's away from the downtown shopping but close enough to walk from downtown.

Excellent meal in great atmosphere!
My husband and I ate here on a cool November evening The fireplace was a wonderful addition to the atmosphere. I had the fried chicken served with black eyed peas and chollard green......exceptional. My husband had the scrimp and grits, which he greatly enjoyed. Food was very unique and flaverful. Staff was excellent!

Great dinner, fair lunch
We ate dinner at the Black Mountain Bistro one evening and lunch there another day during our Black Mountain visit. The service was excellent at both meals. The food was better at the dinner meal than at our lunch, although both meals were good. We recommend this restaurant.

Super charming bistro with a modern-farmhouse feel... Friendly and very efficient staff...even on a pretty busy fall evening! The "So Gouda" sandwich was outstanding...full of rich deep flavors and perfectly prepared. This was a first, of what I suspect, will be many many more visits. Thanks so much!

Location! Atmosphere! Wine selection! Smiling faces! Bistro/cafe theme done nicely.... Paying attention to the needs of the customer...not so options for food sensitive people.

Excellent Dinner
Had dinner here on the last night of our trip. My wife had the turkey dinner and loved it. I had the blackberry pork chop and it too was excellent. Tables were well spaced. Staff were not wearing masks. They were busy and service was fine. Would definitely go again.

The atmosphere, the food, the service, the varied menu — just perfect. Had it been a little warmer, we would have eaten outside under the trees. We highly recommend this bistro!

2021: Service has been great for awhile now. They solved the issues I previously raised. 2020: Service is not what it used to be. The newer wait staff doesn’t get carry-out orders right, and they seem indifferent to failures.

Obviously a little short staffed due to COVID, but overall a great experience.
