Here are some of our recent reviews:


“I moved from Lexington to Charlottesville, VA about a year ago, and this is the restaurant that I will drive over an hour to eat, if I’m feeling like a fantastic meal.  The service is awesome, they’re so friendly and always willing to help accommodate you even if you forgot to make a reservation or show up early or late.

All meals are awesome. I’ve been probably been 25 times in my life, and tried everything on the menu. My favorite meal is the duck, and the olive tapenade or Brie appetizers. The beer bread (served to all tables) is fantastic. Nothing like it. I usually order some for myself when I order to take out, and eat it for the test of the week as a snack.

Bistro on Main is one of my top 5 favorite restaurants nationwide and I will always be loyal to it. Thanks for rocking!”

“Bistro on Main was delightful!”
“We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The service was excellent! The food was very good. We shared a cheese sampler appetizer that was good. I had the jambalaya – it was spicy and yummy! My sister said the salmon was excellent and my mother enjoyed the crab cakes. The served us a delicious warm chocolate cake for my birthday. The server was very responsive when I asked if we could get the check quickly so we could make it to the natural bridge before it closed. I would definitely recommend Bistro on Main!”

“This restaurant set the bar for excellent service and food. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive during our stay. The selections on the menu were all very appetizing and we would have been happy ordering any of them for our appetizer or main course. We ended up selecting Brie for our appetizer and an order of Pecan crusted trout and chicken linguine with lemon cream sauce. We had no trouble finishing our dinner and ate every bite – very delicious meals! We highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants high quality food and service.”

“Best Restaurant In Lexington By Far!!”
“My husband and I moved to Lexington VA from VT over six years ago and our favorite place to eat has been The Bistro right from the beginning! The food is fresh and always delicious, the owner, Jackie, seems to always be there with a smile and an understated way of making sure everything runs smoothly, and the waitstaff is terrific. Darrin was our waiter tonight – he’s a treasure! I’m told ALL the food is wonderful, but I love the salmon with wilted spinach and mashed sweet potatoes so much I never stray. We always bring our guests and family here and always leave full of delicious and healthy food and very happy.”

“We took our daughter and 6 of her friends for her birthday lunch. The service was excellent and the foods was great! The girls all had salads, I was worried that it wouldn’t be filing, but then they arrived. More than a meal. Everything was fresh and we’ll plated. I have a filet mignon sandwich that was out of this world. Something I would definitely order again.

After lunch they brought out our cake and helped take the photos so everyone could be in the photo. They made you feel like a guest not a costumer.

We’ll definitely go back.”
