Food here was excellent. Disappointed to hear it's changing as of Jan 1 2019, so we were happy to have our first experience just 2 days before it closes. The hand made pasta better be part of the new restaurant!!!

Our server was insanely nice and accommodating during our meal. We also definitely appreciated the handmade pasta. Our meal was just okay and for the price I expected better. The lady up front was so sweet and helpful!

I’m truly confused about the high ratings for Black Walnut Bistro. It has potential, but falls short. The bread was cold; the butter (individual pats wrapped in foil) was rock hard. And no olive oil for dipping? I had spaghetti with meatballs, and my husband...More
