We loved the bistro at Black Mountain. The Bistro has indoor and outdoor seating and is nestled into a pretty area. The food and service were excellent

We ate supper at the Black Mountain Bistro on a Saturday night. The wait wasn't long. I thoroughly enjoyed the trout; the crab cakes were disappointing with too much oregano or another spice. The seafood chowder was flavorful but crowded with potatoes. For dessert, I would highly recommend the bread pudding - delicious! Overall, a good meal but a little... More

This is our third trip to Black Mountain but our first time eating at Black Mountain Bistro. I had the meatloaf and my wife had the spinach and arugula salad. While I thought the food was good, it wasn't necessarily great. And the service was just so-so. Nevertheless I would come back and recommend it to others.

We got the veggie burger with fries and coleslaw, veggie flatbread with fries, and fried green tomatoes! So very good. The fries are fresh cut and the tomatoes are perfection! They also have awesome desserts! Pies and cakes! Will definitely be back!

Great little Bistro, with a very expansive menu and reasonable prices. Highly recommend one of their specials, the smoked turkey and dressing with garlic green beans and mashed potatoes. Please note, there is MORE than enough to share, which is what I should have done!

Wife and I had dinner at the Black Mountain Bistro twice this week. The fried mushroom appetizer brought us back. Best either of us have ever had. I had the shrimp and grits which was outstanding. The grits were baked to perfection and the shrimp were large and plentiful with a spicy sauce and crumbled blue cheese. My wife had... More

The Bistro is our favorite place to take visitors. The setting is lovely. The staff is always friendly and welcoming. The food is great, with the Hickory Nut Gap burgers, grouper Reuben, and fried green tomato BLT among our frequent selections. The coconut cake is absolutely amazing. We frequently order it as we order the entree. It is very popular.

Would eat here again and again! We had lunch outside in the courtyard in the warm sun. Heavenly. Coffee was excellent. Our server was very good and very attentive. Sorry I don't recall his name. We chose this eatery because we had our tiny puppy with us and needed to stay outside. What a lucky find! I had the grouper... More

Attended an after wedding party on the patio. Beautiful spot for a group of 25! It was fun to watch people walk by and be part of the black mountain downtown scene. Food is great here, and prices are reasonable. Highly recommend this place!
