Being in the biz, I know what to look for and what to expect. Mike and Richie have it all at this place. Great drinks, great food and a staff to match. The menu changes a few times a year so you never get bored with it. The wine selection is compliments the menu as well. The atmosphere is cozy,... More

Was in Kingston on work with some other colleagues. Bistro was recommended to us and we were not disappointed. Calamari for appetizers were delish. I got the Chicken Marsala with potatoes it was outstanding. Service was good. The only thing that I was disappointed in was the dessert. I had gotten a slice of the Lemon/Raspberry cake to go and...

Chef Chris is amazing. Everything from the cocktails to the appetizers to the salads and entrees is delicious. I highly recommend the French Onion soup and the filet mignon. Also, the Chef's Specials will never disappoint. Staff is professional, courteous & friendly.Excellent restaurant.

This little "find" tucked between retail shops delights food lovers. For cocktails or small plates and even for a meal, this is a great spot. Bar prices are high - be warned. The menu and the nightly specials offer a wide variety of options. A number of salads are available with a variety of protein options available to make it... More
