Be sure to follow exactly groupon instructions for use here... Although manager refused ours saying it was "blackout period" due to Valentines although this was on 2/11 he honored it for another table in our earshot. In the end the waiter heard our argument and rectified it for us. We had dinner and after all this we went back at... More

Bistro 109 is a local favorite mostly undiscovered by tourists. It is a quiet and awesome atmosphere in the back room. A pianist plays in the front room near the bar. The food is excellent. Only fresh food and some organic vegetables are served. It is near the courthouse in downtown Sevierville.

Just found Bistro 109 on our January 2017 trip to the Smoky Mountains. Discovered that this establishment has been open more than ten years and wondered how I hadn't heard about it before. We had two wonderful entrees. We ended up sharing our plates. We had the chicken Florentine and the Shrimp and Grits. Made fresh from local ingredients and... More

An elegant restaurant with reasonable prices. A decent wine menu and bar. The rolls and pesto dipping oil is a great start. The seafood pastas are very good and unusual for this area. The desserts are fairly good, sometimes a hit or miss.

We went for lunch and everything we had was wonderful. The chicken pot pie was a very nice surprise. It had mashed potatoes, zucchini and squash. Can't wait to go back for dinner.

Fine dining in a classy informal setting, you won't see cowboy hats or gingham here. Excellent variety of menu items, original takes on traditional dishes. We especially enjoyed our server Zach whose witty repartee added just the right touch of local flavor. If you're looking for a break from the chain restaurants, this is the place for you!

The owner himself goes the extra mile to make sure the customers are being taken care of and are comfortable.

They went out of their way to make me feel taken care of, they made us feel very special. These are great people and you want... More

This place is great! Very sophisticated "big city" vibe, but a warm local feel also. Prices are reasonable, food was good and staff was friendly. They have a happy hour M-F which we will surely be back for.

Don't let the pictures fool you. Everything about this place is bad. From the ripped carpet, to the nasty bathrooms, the very poor service, and the managers bad attitude. But the food is the worse. I ordered the 12 oz. filet, rare. I got two little filets stacked on top of each other, medium well. The "mixed vegetables", are actually... More
