Great staff. Very friendly. Food is marginal at best. For Kent, this was the only "upscale" restaurant in town. That has since been eclipsed by a thriving downtown Kent.

We ate here for lunch. The selections ranged from NY strip steak, salmon and chicken to 12" pizza, burger, pulled pork BBQ sandwich or pasta dishes. The staff was very attentive and checked back often. We were very pleased. The restroom is one room for men and one room for women. You may have to stand in line.

We were in town for a funeral for a family member, and we needed a place to go afterward to socialize with family. We contacted the restaurant a couple days in advance to let them know we would potentially have 25+ people in our group. They put us in a separate room from the other guests that was perfect. We...

The menu has a wide variety of food from great burgers, to home made pizza, to fine dining entrees. The atmosphere also has a variety from very nice patio (open most of the year with fireplace and heaters) to lounge to fine dining table cloth areas. The service is top notch and consistent.

Food is really good. Service is average at best. Not bad, but nothing spectacular. I would go there again, but I wouldn't make it a top choice.

This place is perfect. The service is excellent, the drinks are loaded up and the food is amazing. I had the Brussel sprouts and wings and they were the best ever. I highly recommend this place.

Made reservations requesting a table by the window. When we arrived the hostess apologized and asked if we were willing to sit in the bar. I was with my kids so I complied, bad start. In the bar the setup is an upholstered bench along the wall with tables and chairs it's not private and it's loud, uncomfortable on a... More

We love coming here whenever we visit Kent. Bistro on Main is special - from its delicious menu of appetizers, entrees and desserts, a great wine list, a lovely dining room, and lively bar.

My wife and I had a hockey game to go to at KSU and because of the snow we were running late. We were very promptly seated and served, I could not have been happier, both the meal and the service were excellent. Had the brisket and I could cut it with a fork literally melted in my mouth.
