The perfect blend of high end food, affordable prices, and family friendly dining. The food was absolutely delicious, the staff was wonderful, and I couldn't believe what we were getting for the price. Definitely the go-to lunch spot in Black Mountain!

The Black Mountain Bistro was in 2 words " Top Shelf ". I had my pet with me and he was as well recieved as I. I had the buffalo chicken wrap and it was the best buffalo that I have had in quite sometime. The buffalo sauce was well done and the buffalo flavor was not overwhelming but enhancing. The service was equally good as the ... read more

Some of the best food in town. Turkey dinner is great (huge portion), as well as fried green tomatoes and fried pickles. Relaxed environment, good service. Really enjoyed it.

One item is listed as vegan(lentil soup), the burger can be served with wheat bread and no mayo. There’s fries that are decent, no separate fryer. It’s a bit on the pricier side, but that’s why it’s a bistro. After Catawba Falls we needed a vegetarian friendly meal. The service was good.

Macy the hostess was working her tail off. She never took a minute. Luca the server was efficient and friendly.

Quaint little bistro in the heart of the downtown area. The building has a welcoming lodge feel. Love the glass enclosed sunroom seating. Lots of great healthy meal choices. The butternut squash soup was the best we've ever had, with a thick texture so you new it was freshly made. Our family had a variety of sandwiches, all delicious ... read more

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

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.
jeromage1 via - Dec 18, 2021
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

We had delightful lunch served by Allie our server. The cocktails and wine selection was great. Many dishes available to compliment the season or different tastes at the table.The blackberry pork chop was a hit and The burger was very good.
Joe Barton via - Dec 9, 2021
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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

Perfect place for a classy lunch!
Delicious food and homemade soups! The staff was friendly and knowledgeable - will definitely go back the Beach and Bacon Soup was amazing!!!

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!
