Whenever we come to see friends in SoCal we come here for dinner. Small with great ambiance, the food and service do not disappoint. I had a birthday dinner here with friends and James and Denise pushed out the boat. Thank you for a wonderful Birthay dinner. I would wholeheartedly recommend this as a place to dine.

We have eaten at a lot of restaurants on this trip to California and this was our favourite. Owen's is in the quint downtown area of Chino and is in the building of a former bank built at the turn of the 20th century. It was a warm summer night and we were out on the patio where a nice... More

Had dinner with friend there while visiting over weekend. Lovely decor and server was really nice. We both had the salmon with greens which was tasty but more like a salmon salad than expected. I had margarita which was just OK - grew up in SoCal and used to really good ones there. Live music was lovely. Recommended if you... More

The restaurant appears to be in an old partial building open to the outside but can be covered in inclement weather. Tables have linens and upholstered chairs. Nice décor. There was a gentlemen playing acoustic guitar on Friday night. All the staff, from the owner to the wait staff were all gracious and accommodating. Food was innovative & delicious. As... More

Delicious food, great atmosphere, wonderful service. Reservations are recommended. Chef James is an amazing chef and very creative. If you like to try traditional foods with a creative spin, you'll love Owen's Bistro.

We celebrated our five year anniversary at Owen's bistro on a Friday night at 7 PM. We made reservations earlier in the week and it wasn't very crowded when we got there. Sat on the patio as most people do, it was very nice and they had string lights that lit up to create great ambience once it got dark.... More

the service was prompt and upon arriving very nice experience. Small restaurant family owned serving excellent meals. Food is American but higher end. Think of a French Bistro in America. Note: Desserts are nice but not a large selection. Parking is plentiful. Need to make reservations in advance to guarantee table Friday-Sunday.I would go back again

Definitely best dinning experience in Chino. The food was delicious and the ambiance was perfect. Please be aware space is limited so make reservations or be prepared to wait. Can't wait to go back.

This is a small and quaint restaurant with the most amazing food. The food is not only wonderful, but the presentation is remarkable. Weekends have a guitarist and this is so nice. I have and would recommend this to anyone who like intimate dining with wonderful food choices that you cannot just get anywhere. It is a little pricey but... More
