I ordered chicken , avocado, bacon and lettuce club sandwich with fries, and my friend ordered spaghetti Bolognese. The chicken was very dry and my fries were burned, a very small dish of coleslaw accompanied this and I have to say that this was the...best part of the meal! The Spaghetti was very dry and not enough sauce. We should have complained at the time, but I didn’t want to spoil the experience for my friend.I had a glass of tap water and friend had 2 bottles of Stella Artois. No desserts ,nothing else and the bill with a small tip came to $91. Disgraceful for what we had . I feel sad to say but we will not visit here again .More

Every time we have had a meal at the Lowville Bistro it has been wonderful. The food is delicious, the wait staff are friendly and efficient. It is our go-to place for special occasions. It is not inexpensive, but it is worth every penny.

This has been a go to place for us for quite a few years. We loved it, and took many friends and family to dine here, raving about it! Well, I have thought long and hard about writing this. It is not easy. We were...embarrassed quite frankly. The prices had gone up markedly, and the portions were very small. The menu choices had been pared down significantly. I had a small steak with a tiny smattering of vegetables $49. I asked for rare, and got medium. My husband had the same. His medium steak was well done. I sent mine back, and ended up with a smaller steak. There were only 2 main course specials, and the once plentiful dessert menu had only 3 items. The riblets appetizer was about a third of what it used to be. Only 2 servers were there, so service was very slow, and spotty. Total bill was $364 for 4 people with 1 bottle of wine. I don't want to say that we won't be back, but we will give it time to see if things improve.More

Beautiful location but outrageously priced. Specially in a small place. Country setting. French fries for $13.95? Salads for $ 20? Not much vegetarian choices.

Fantastic dinner at Lowville Bistro! The service was excellent - as always - and the food was wonderful!!! Their outdoor patio is lovely, secluded and nicely shaded, with tables well spaced. Due to the weather, we ate indoors and again, tables are well spaced and...we felt totally safe. The fish special was outstanding and the veal chop was excellent - and huge! Robert, the owner, is highly visible and ensures everyone’s evening is going well. The staff are attentive and engaging, and seem to be enjoying their shift. We had a lovely dinner, as we always do! Lowville Bistro remains one of our favourites!More

While the location and patio were lovely, the food was disappointing. Service was friendly and efficient and the appetizers (bistro salad and escargot) were ok, but the pasta entrees were not very good at all … and expensive for what they were. Both were swimming...in below average tasting sauce. The sausage in my partners penne arrabbiata was tough and fairly tasteless. Also surprised that many items on the menu just weren’t available. No pizza, no chickpea fries, no dessert. I would go back to have a drink on the patio but I wouldn’t eat here again.More

Used to be quite a nice little gem, with awesome servers and a cook staff to die for.... the last few times it’s been very disappointing... prices have gone up.. portions down . The wife and I used to go here for every date night......but that will not be happening again. Gonna miss seeing Roberts smiling face though!!More

Very disappointing place. Bad service. Food was served after waiting for 1.5 hours. Pricy and disorganized place specially at dinner time. The servers could not be seen at any table for long times. Pls don’t waste your precious money at this place.
