Located downtown Chambersburg PA. Had the mussels and filet mignon. Was cooked excellent. Bar tender was great and service was great. Quite cozy atmosphere. Would go again if I ever came back for vacation and do a date night.

Can't wait to go back again.We started with mussels and the cheese board. Best mussels ever. We had Crab cakes, chicken, and Steak. All were excellent tasting. Our waitress was so kind and accommodating.

A much-needed upscale dining experience in downtown Chambersburg and a welcome respite from chain restaurants. Everything first class and well-done: cocktails, appetizers, entrees, desserts. Wait staff well-trained and well-informed. A small place but cozy ambiance.

Takes you back in time. Very nice! While in Rome as they say. Sometimes you just have to sit back and have a hot tottie or two.

We tried Bistro 71 for the first time last Wednesday night. The restaurant was fairly busy, dimly lit, but cozy. We were first seated by the entry door. That location was chilly due to the often-opened door, so we moved to a better spot. Our...More

The food is simply amazing! I have tried several different meals, from sandwiches to full dinners and I am never disappointed. The atmosphere and wait staff are wonderful, perfect for couples or small groups of friends. I recommend reservations!!!
