Great food, great drink and very friendly staff. Very relaxing interior and ambience. A reservation is recommended because this is a popular destination for an excellent meal and a grand time. Take a date, they will love it. Take your wife, she deserves it!

As we were proceeding from the interstate, we pull in to a totally unfamiliar area to try to find a place to eat. Based on past reviews, we gave this one a try. Could not have picked a better place. Incredibly, they have homemade bread...More

After all of the other rave reviews, we were really looking forward to trying Bistro 71. We were left at our table for over 15 minutes with glasses of water, nothing else, not even a menu. The service continued to be slow all evening. We...More
