I took my spouse out for her birthday in December. We both agreed to return to Bistro Maison after several years. We had stayed away after several times trying to schedule during month long closures. We found that on a cold night one week before Christmas the restaurant was almost entirely ours. We decided to try the truffle oil fondue,... More

I enjoyed everything about my birthday celebration at Bistro Maison. The service was wonderful. The food was delicious. The wine list is extensive and reasonably priced. My husband loves the oysters. I adore the salmon in mushroom cream sauce. The piece de resistance was the special grand marnier soufflé for dessert! I am already looking forward to our next visit.

We really enjoy French food having been to various areas of France a number of times. This is more American French food. I had the cassoulet and the duck confit was not confit. The skin was soggy not crisp. The flavor was good but wouldn't order again. The squash soup and ravioli were both very good. The chocolate cake was... More

We came upon this lovely place and we were counting our lucky stars that we did. Not only was the quality of the food amazing, the presentation was well done. However, what was most impressive were the gracious hosts and well trained team lead by owners Deborah and Jean Jacques. She was very helpful in pairing an amazing bottle of... More

We had a large group and were treated well Unfortunately we had had a huge breakfast, a wonderful lunch and enough wine tasting that we were not hungry enough to appreciate all the great sounding food that Bistro Maison had to offer, but what we had was good and the staff was friendly and polite.

This restaurant is in a converted old historic home on McMinnville's picturesque main street. The menu is solid French provincial and all dishes were well prepared and presented. The ambiance is a little antique french with some nice touches. Dishes we would recommend are any of their in-house pastas, French onion soup, and the Hanger steak. Also we had the... More

I am from McMinnville so my husband and I visit at least once or twice a year. For some reason we just hadn't made it to Bistro Maison the last few years. That was a mistake. We will be coming every time we visit going forward. Everything was top notch. Delicious food, cozy atmosphere, wonderful service. This is the place... More

Fabulous food! Fabulous, and friendly, service! We so enjoyed our evening here. We were a large family group celebrating a couple of birthdays, and selected Bistro Maison mostly because its broad menu seemed like it could accommodate all tastes. What a pleasant surprise to find out just how good all those menu items are! Our orders ranged across all parts... More

We chose this restaurant to celebrate a special anniversary dinner. When we arrived for our 6:30pm dinner reservation, the restaurant was packed with loud diners who were part of a wine tasting dinner. As our server tried to explain the specials, we found it impossible to hear her so decided to leave. The menu looked interesting and the atmosphere was... More

This is a restaurant where the entire staff takes great care over every detail. Not only is the food exquisite, the wait staff, hostess, and even the bussers are personable and concerned with your enjoyment. It is clear that the restaurant is "chef-driven" and it appears to be a family operation. The prices are surprisingly affordable for this level of... More
