Great Italian and wine, upscale dining so expect to pay a little more. Very quaint and does not seat a lot of people so go early. Not sure if they take reservations, I would guess "yes"

One house salad and one Caesar (with too much dressing and "caked" cheese) I had Pollo Vento which is my regular. My wife had the special Chilean Sea Bass... More

Following a tip from Dave Hunter's book "Along the I-75", we drove into Findlay Ohio to get dinner on our drive home from a month in Florida. It was one of the best restaurant finds of our 6 weeks away from Canada. The ambience was so inviting as we entered, and we got a table for two by the front... More

Made a reservation and table was ready on time! Great server and explained wine selections, nightly specials etc. the menu does seem to be getting a little pricey for the area market. $30 -$48. I had the scallops and my wife had the salmon. Both were very good.

As soon as we walked in, we knew we had picked the right place. A booth seat was provided upon request. We started with the days feature drink, a blueberry basil martini, which was delicious, and the house merlot. The steaming hot bread was hard to resist, both with the sweet butter provided, as well as an improvised plate of... More

The food is always great as well as the service. Equally good for lunch and dinner. Nice wine list that is reasonably priced.

I work in Downtown Findlay and I can tell you that The Bistro is my absolute favorite eatery. I've had lunch, dinner, and events catered by Sam & every single dish has been delicious. The atmosphere is unique, and the service is always great.

Great fine dining in Findlay, OH. Very attentive wait staff and nice selection for varied tastes. The appetizer of pears wrapped in bacon was wonderful, as was the pasta with chicken, artichokes, mushrooms and pine nuts and the pasta topped with salmon. The short rib entrée.was very good, but too pricey for only one rib.
