Christopher's Bistro is located in a small mall adjacent to McDonalds on 69 Brookside Ave. When you enter you are greeted by a very nice Hostess who will show you to the Bar Area or Dining Area. The menu is the perfect size and they always have Specials. I have been here four times now and have tried a nice... More

I'd heard good things about Christopher's but quite honestly never tried it for the silly reason that its just not very attractive from the outside. It's fairly non-descript, in a not-so-pretty strip mall, tucked into the shadow of a McDonalds. The interior did not do much to change my mind either as it too is nothing special, but the food?...

We went here on a Friday evening and the place was jammin'. Reservations are suggested. We waited a 1/2 hr and the food was well worth the wait. I had a special, Arctic Char. It was served over black rice and sautéed spinach and was accompanied by a unique pico de gallo and it was superb. My wife had the... More

This place was recommended, so we found them in the little strip mall. Th. ey had a nice selection of craft beers on tap. The french onion soup and the soup of the day were excellent. We ordered a steak dinner and a burger with fries, and all were perfect. The fries had a great coating that made me really... More

Love the Beet Salad with goat cheese. Could eat this 7 days in a row. The crab cakes were also good.

We went for lunch. It was very quiet, possibly because it was so late. The waitresses were both very nice & attentive. Our order was taken & the food arrived very quickly. The burger came with store-made chips, which were very nice, and some lettuce & tomato. You can trade out the chips for fries, salad, etc. for a fee.... More
