we went in without a reservation---not a good idea--the person in our party went online to make it and did not do it soon enough--however, Debra, one of the owners, made us feel welcome as she always does and the French food is absolutely wonderful-I have been going to this restaurant for 10 years to celebrate our anniversary and have...

The food at this little Bistro is always wonderful. This last visit I tried the Coq Au Vin and I was not disappointed. It is served in a pot and was delicious. There was so much I brought half home for lunch the next day. Pretty much everything here is made from scratch. Try their Spritzers and one of their... More

What a delightful place. Looks like this was a former downtown residence. Now it’s a restaurant that provides a quaint atmosphere & food that’s bar none. Most unique Valentine’s Day decorations ever! My scallops & shrimp were perfectly prepared. My husband said his chinook salmon was the best he ever had. From the moment we walked in the door &... More

Had the Special Four course dinner. Very good, the only thing I did not like was a gratuity put on the bill total. I would have tipped that much for the good service and food. If service is not good I don't expect to give 20% gratuity, would you!! Will go back to try the dinner menu.

The 4 courses we... More

If you have extra money to spend on an amazing meal, and want a romantic evening with your spouse, this is a great place to eat. The service will pay great attention to your needs and the food will be enjoyable. The portions are not large but very tasty and they can help you with any wine you may want... More

I took my spouse out for her birthday in December. We both agreed to return to Bistro Maison after several years. We had stayed away after several times trying to schedule during month long closures. We found that on a cold night one week before Christmas the restaurant was almost entirely ours. We decided to try the truffle oil fondue,... More

I enjoyed everything about my birthday celebration at Bistro Maison. The service was wonderful. The food was delicious. The wine list is extensive and reasonably priced. My husband loves the oysters. I adore the salmon in mushroom cream sauce. The piece de resistance was the special grand marnier soufflé for dessert! I am already looking forward to our next visit.

We really enjoy French food having been to various areas of France a number of times. This is more American French food. I had the cassoulet and the duck confit was not confit. The skin was soggy not crisp. The flavor was good but wouldn't order again. The squash soup and ravioli were both very good. The chocolate cake was... More
