We stumbled upon Bistro 71 by chance after searching for a diner spot during an unplanned visit to Chambersburg. The food, service, and atmosphere were delightful. The crab cake was lightly seasoned and perfectly done. My wife had the chicken house salad and said it was to die for. The martinis weren't bad either! Desert was a shared slice of... More

Bistro 71 is the best in town for a romantic night or just dining with friends. Food and service are spectacular, other restaurants in the area are usually lacking in one or the other. Food is definitely worth the price and the drinks are never watered down. Menu changes seasonally and we've never been disappointed.

I am a little partial to bistros they happen to be my favorite. Bistro 71 was everything it needed to be. The prime rib was delicious and cooked medium rare exactly the way it should've been. Our server was very friendly and informative. The Cabernet Wine was very nice tasting as well. I was very pleased and a little shocked... More

Surprisingly great local spot! Not far from the Hampton Inn 10-15 minutes. I had great time, $5 Martini's on Monday, fun conversations with locals! Yummy crab cakes, grilled asparagus, sautéed mushrooms, red velvet cake and peach martini's! My new go to spot when I'm in town for business!

Food is excellent, if a bit pricey, the atmosphere is very comfortable! Downtown location is probably not the best spot but it easily found, and worth the visit.

Dinner at the Bistro 71 was once again a delightful experience. The pictures show the salad and dinner dishes I ordered this evening. The presentation, as always, was perfect. The salad was fresh; greens had a crunch to them, with a balsamic dressing that mixed excellently with the greens. You finish this portion knowing you have just done something good... More

Unexpectedly solid menu, decor, service. Portions were small. A few thin slices of Ahi on a sea of heavy risotto was not a good choice. Chicken stuffed with mozzarella on risotto was a good choice.

Bistro 71 brings you a big city feel to our small town living. The food and drinks are impeccable and the staff makes the dining experience everything you could wish for. A great place to take your next date, enjoy time with friends, or fly solo and grab some good food and take in the ambiance. A must-do for anyone... More

Get my haircut next door. Well heck yes it's a good place to get a cut or I wouldn't go. Anyway the Bistro is a gem. Always an elegant and solid treat. Try it.
