Beyond exceeded our expectations of what we were coming into our visit to New Glasgow. Warmly welcomed at the door by the owner herself and then served with an amazing experience only surpassed by the food. Definitely check it out when you visit New Glasgow.

Had a meal at this restaurant last night and had a lovely meal with great service and nice comfortable surroundings. Food was as good as we expected having reviewed other diners comments. Will return next time i'm staying overnight in this area.

The food is always exceptional and the service is fantastic! I love that the menu has some constants but the chef is always cooking with whats in season. You might be full from dinner but you HAVE to get dessert, especially the giant 'peanut butter cup'! Always a great evening at The Bistro.

The food was good. The service was really really slow. Considering the alternatives, I would suggest you try this place if you are in the area.

New Glasgow has a relatively limited selection for dining options. So if you want to take someone to the highest quality place around, this is a safe bet. From the perspective of fine dining options offered in major cities, The Bistro falls short. It makes a good effort but cannot compete. With that said, it's a good restaurant, great staff,... More
