Outstanding freshly prepared food. Awesome service, great setting. My wife and I stopped for dinner ( reservations recommended). We started with shrimp bruschetta. Came with 7 jumbo shrimp perfectly sautéed. Followed by bowl of fish chowder filled with salmon and fresh vegs. Fresh Salads. Main courses were stacked chicken sautéed vegs and homemade scratch mashed potatoes. Along with Angels on... More

Great selections at reasonable prices. I'll be back. I had the Pan Seared Salmon. Ever so Lightly crisp outside but moist and flakey inside. Just perfect. Wife had the stacked chicken and loved. Service was great. We will return.

Great service, food, and made by a qualified chef. Any meal there is one we have loved. Relaxing atmosphere. Good amount of food for any price of meal. Lunches are great as well, even if you order just a sandwich.

Celebrated Valentine's Day early! I instantly knew I would love it when we walked in. Great ambience. The hostess was very friendly, as was the waitress. I ordered the Cheddar Chicken Rotini With Broccoli. It looked amazing, tasted even better. Heaven! He ordered the Stacked Chicken. He says it was amazing, with exceptional flavor! We will be back soon!

We enjoyed a very good meal, on a night out with friends. Good food as always, but this time the service was poor. We had a 6:00 reservation and got our dinner salads at 6:50 and 7:15 before the dinners came. The young man waiting on us was not at all attentive, did not ask if we would like drink... More

I was amazed with every part of the meal. I enjoyed the Ribeye with mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables. My wife ordered the stacked chicken: Since everything else was perfect, we split the pumpkin cheesecake. Everything was delicious and the service was great! I will be going here again soon.

Great food and service. Reasonably priced with a nice variety snd selection. Specials are usually our choice with always a great backup on the menu. The ribeye is excellent and the veggies are always perfectly prepared. The gnocchi side dish is a good choice. The owners have done an excellent job with this quaint local Mediterranean restaurant.

This was our first time at Bistro 26. Upon walking in, it was a great atmosphere and the person at the desk kindly took our 6:15 reservation. Then our server, Linda came. She began to rush us through ordering and didn't even tell us the specials. She was very kind and attentive to tables around us, but a different story... More

We had dinner here recently and had a very nice time. Our server was slow with our drink orders (and it wasn't very busy in the restaurant) but our meal was served in a much more timely manner. I had the crab cakes with sides - all delicious! The portions were generous and I would recommend this restaurant.

Wonderful dinner for the four of us. Great service. No wait like the chain restaurants. Reasonable price. Try the Mediterranean. Appetizer. So good with three different dips. Our meals were warm and delicious. Nice portion size, too.

Thank Margie G
