This bistro is lively, well-appointed, and serves really mouth-watering food! The staff was very friendly and efficient. They were also extremely knowledgeable about the menu and made several very good suggestions. Judging by its popularity at lunch time, I'm glad we had reservations!

Although we've been coming to the area for the past 8 years we never ventured into this restaurant. What a surprise. The food was excellent, creative, varied and delicious. We all tried different entrees and tasted some of all. Everyone was very happy with their food, particularly the egg rolls which were not what people expect. The duck was very... More

We have eaten here several times over the last 3 years, and every time find something innovative and delicious to try. The Lobster/Scallop Au Gratin over fried Zuccini boat is my personal favorite. My husband loves the Pork Chop or Tuna. Recently added "cheese board" is awesome! Whenever we are going to attend a play at TOR in Conway, we... More

The Bistro was a first for us tonight and definitely will not be our last. We have been looking for a great place to eat before heading down to the theater. The moment we entered , we were greeted and seated by pleasant staff. Our waiter Kennon was the best. He was very knowledgeable on all entrees and helped me... More

We have dined at this wonderful restaurant frequently and have always had an excellent meal and super service. You can order their duck, tuna, fish, pasta, chicken or beef....they are all delicious. This is one of the advantages of living in Conway, that we have such a great restaurant to bring our friends with us.

We have been in love with "The Bistro" since they opened back in 1994. Wow, that's almost as long as we've been married. We always struggle with what to order. Get some of our favorite appetizers, like Low Country Spring Roll and Cajun Shrimp to share or dive in head first and order their always delicious Chargrilled Ribeye with Maytag... More

We found the Rivertown Bistro when we moved to Conway a couple of years ago. It's a farm to table restaurant. The food is always fresh and very well prepared. The menu changes a few times a year. The "Bistro" is our go to place for consistently excellent food.

This has become one of our favorite restaurants. We love driving almost an hour to go here, that's how good the food is. We would recommend this to everyone. It's a hidden gem.
