This is a great place to enjoy a romantic dinner. We were visiting Chambersburg on a stop over stay at the Craig Victorian B&B and they suggested we go here for dinner. We had a wonderful dinner and wonderful service. Thank you!

Delicious tapas, especially the mac & cheese, tenderloin with poached egg, and pumpkin creme brulee. Tried to go again on Sunday to have other things, but it was closed.

I do not believe that there is outdoor seating. If it were me, I would call to make a reservation, so yes!

Bill, Sorry Bistro 71 will be closed on 12/24. Perhaps you should try the Copper Kettle.
