If you want fine dining in a room where you can hear what is being said, look no further. This is the best dining restaurant in Harbor Country. Don't let the Lawrence Welk - style decor fool you. The food is creative, carefully prepared and delicious. We sampled all the appetizers -- not a bad one in the lot. The... More

My husband and I were in St. Joseph for a long weekend and decided to try the Bistro. My sister, who was with us, had been to the Bistro numerous times and loves this place. Well, we definitely agree with her! The atmosphere is warm with a great deal of nice woodwork making the restaurant very cozy and inviting. Our... More

we have been here many times and some dishes are hit or miss, but if you love lamb and are in southwest michigan get to the Bistro for the spiced lamb shank. It is amazing! Love the tenderness and then with the freshness of the ginger and jalapeno mixed in a bite of the lamb in a piece of the... More

Saved our last vacation dinner for the Bistro last Friday night 10/21 because we've had such a good experience there in the past. Our waiter was completely inattentive and painfully slow. Didn't seem like he was a new hire, just bad. Front room where we were seated was about half full. Another couple nearby left after their wine because of... More

We stopped in on a warm fall day and the outdoor terrace was still open. Lucky for us. I had a mixed green salad with a brochette of chicken. My husband had a banh with a sweet potato/vegetable mix plus a side of asparagus. All nicely prepared. It was the first day with a new menu and the server was... More

I would recommend a dinner here anytime! We were here for our eleventh anniversary. As noted, the meal was excellent, service was good as well. We drink manhattans and they were perfect!

Arrived in St Joseph & had a couple of hours over lunchtime before our room at our B&B was going to be ready, so saw this restaurant & went in. We got a table on their balcony &. Old see the lake through the trees, ideal. We both enjoyed our lunch very much & would recommend the restaurant fully.

We visited The Bistro the day after Labor Day. What a change from the busy St. Joseph summer. The weather is still warm and sitting outside with a view of Lake Michigan was tranquil. The waitress was friendly, efficient, and fun. My husband and I both had the corn breaded oyster po boys that were delicious. They included a side.... More
