As we were proceeding from the interstate, we pull in to a totally unfamiliar area to try to find a place to eat. Based on past reviews, we gave this one a try. Could not have picked a better place. Incredibly, they have homemade bread and butter which was delicious. Could it be that we were just hungry? Doubtful, as... More

After all of the other rave reviews, we were really looking forward to trying Bistro 71. We were left at our table for over 15 minutes with glasses of water, nothing else, not even a menu. The service continued to be slow all evening. We ordered the lobster and crab dip and the hummus for appetizers for the table. The... More

It turned out that our visit was also the same day the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event was happening with the starting point across the street. The bar was crowded with men decked out in tutus and red high heels. High camaraderie. More of a bustle than expected. To the food - crab/lobster dip was fantastic. Duck breast... More

Located downtown Chambersburg PA. Had the mussels and filet mignon. Was cooked excellent. Bar tender was great and service was great. Quite cozy atmosphere. Would go again if I ever came back for vacation and do a date night.

Can't wait to go back again.We started with mussels and the cheese board. Best mussels ever. We had Crab cakes, chicken, and Steak. All were excellent tasting. Our waitress was so kind and accommodating.

A much-needed upscale dining experience in downtown Chambersburg and a welcome respite from chain restaurants. Everything first class and well-done: cocktails, appetizers, entrees, desserts. Wait staff well-trained and well-informed. A small place but cozy ambiance.

Takes you back in time. Very nice! While in Rome as they say. Sometimes you just have to sit back and have a hot tottie or two.

We tried Bistro 71 for the first time last Wednesday night. The restaurant was fairly busy, dimly lit, but cozy. We were first seated by the entry door. That location was chilly due to the often-opened door, so we moved to a better spot. Our food was delicious and the wine special was seemingly good (50% off any bottle). Trouble... More

The food is simply amazing! I have tried several different meals, from sandwiches to full dinners and I am never disappointed. The atmosphere and wait staff are wonderful, perfect for couples or small groups of friends. I recommend reservations!!!
