Don't be put off by the spartan decor and bare tables. This place seeks to do more with less. The menu is extensive and the big blackboard on the wall offers items not on the printed pages. Service is a bit slow (the room was not busy) but friendly. The food was tasty and prepared with flair and technique. Once... More

Friendly service with a nice lunch menu. Specialty coffee also served. Had the smoked chicken salad with a side salad and it was delicious. Food was out quickly to help you get back to your office at 1 o clock.

Highly recommend this restaurant for a casual relaxing lunch. There is no rush to leave, which we appreciated. Harvest salad and Spinach salad are excellent. Good coffee too

Went back for lunch again this past Monday at noon. I had the Mac and cheese with crab again ($13) and it was very good as usual. My friend ordered the Philly steak with cheese sandwich. He starting eating and said, this is not steak. He asked the cook and he said, Yes, it's the Philly steak. Well it did... More

I had the Mac and Cheese with shrimp. It was tasty and a good portion. They will split the order if you ask. Nothing fancy but the food is OK and I would go here for a quick bite vs. any of the fast food places.

I go to the Bistro on Main on an almost-weekly basis... sometimes twice a week! The Bistro Club with sweet potatoe fries are absolutely yummy and I plan to keep ordering that as long as I continue to live in Milton. I've tried most of the sandwiches/wraps on the menu since it first opened a few years ago and have... More

Decided to try this on a whim as both my husband and I were hungry for lunch. We walked in and waited for a table and browsed the menu.Seemed promising and we were both anxious to try. Got our seat and the girl handed us the menus. Then left ! We sat there and waited and waited. No where in... More

Four of us went for lunch, three entrees. Two of us had Bistro Beef Dip. It was OK but nothing special. We had Rosti as our sides, expecting a Swiss treat but it was very different. In patty form, it was bland. I didn't finish mine. On the other hand, my wife had a frittata, which she loved. Prices were... More

I've had the opportunity to try this place many times. It is located downtown in one of the old Restivo buildings right next door to Knox Church. I usually go for a late lunch (1:30ish) as any earlier and it can sometimes be packed. They specialize in sandwiches, most of which are priced in the $8-$12 range. I've had the... More
