We went here with a party of 5 to enjoy a nice birthday dinner. When we arrived they could not seat us; which was fine, we waited in their little bar area. They have tables that accommodate 4 people and ones for 2 people. After waiting 15 minutes, a party of 4 walked in and sat at the bar as... More

One of the few places in Twenty Nine Palms where you can find a great meal. A bit more expensive than some of the other options in town but definitely worth it.

We recently ate here based on reviews from others who had eaten here. I made the assumption that "bistro" would be original and good food. Our group started out with chicken wings that had to be sent back twice because they were frozen. One of the people in our group ordered the waffle and chicken. It was a large serving... More

Contrary to recent Trip Advisor postings, this place was open for dinner last night and it was packed with diners by 6:30. Maybe they had a recent change of ownership or management. We came by for dinner on Wednesday and had a fine meal. The menu seems to still offer some of their "fine dining" options along with more casual... More

The Bistro is a very nice restaurant for anyone who wants to get away from the usual and enter into a change with character. The staff are outstanding and the owners are wonderful people who come out and greet their patrons. The food choices are wonderful and the food itself was divine on all levels. This is the place to... More

Bad sign when there are only four other people in the place and it takes 30 minutes to get food after ordering. Lots of people in the kitchen , but apparently no one working. So forgettable! No one in our party was impressed with a single thing served.

The restaurant reopened under new ownership in February. Saturday night was the second time I've visited in the past month. Atmosphere is great, food is excellent and moderately priced. Staff is efficient and polite. Owners are a delight to talk with. In my opinion, Bistro 29 is one of the 2 best restaurants in town and is worth a visit... More

We were here in the third week of their soft opening. Limited menu, but covered all bases. Waitress was very friendly. (Assumed) owner greeted us when we came in before we got to the hostess station. After being seated and appetizer order was eaten, (assumed) owners wife asked how everything was. We were waiting for another couple to join us... More

This restaurant went out of business 5 months ago I don't know how else to tell you. The person who owned the business was a contractor at the base. His wife wanted something to do so he set her up in this business. It was very good food and service. The wine selection was one like you would fine at... More
