This small restaurant has wonderful food. We dropped in early for dinner and had to sit out in the patio area because they were all booked up. The patio would have been wonderful, expect it was chilly. However, it was worth braving the chill to taste their food. We ordered meatloaf and planked salmon. Those sound mundane, but the way...

Locally sourced with fine dining flair. Always have an enjoyable meal at Alder Wood. The place is small so make a reservation or be willing to wait during peak hours. Worth the wait. Enjoy!

The service was outstanding -- attentive and friendly. The entree that we shared required a few extra minutes of preparation, so the chef offered us a serving of... More

This is one of those very exceptional places that I have reviewed more than once. We have stopped by here a couple of times since my last review in May of 2016. We'll be back again and again, as long as the owners and staff of Alder Wood Bistro continue to provide such an excellent product, in terms of food,... More

The wait staff is delightful! This is a wonderful little place for dinner. Pizza was fantastic and the Calamari Salad is a must! Don't forget to order the carrot cake!

Our hosts at the Greenhouse Inn recommended the Alder wood Bistro and reserved a patio table for us. We could not have been more pleased. The waitress was delightful and the food was wonderful. My husband had the Steak Frite and I had a duck breast special. The food was delicious and locally sourced.
