We arrived for with our dog for lunch at the bistro, after a recommendation as somewhere to go that is dog friendly. I waited outside with the pup while my husband went in to get service. The woman that came out with him to prepare our table seemed bothered that we had our dog with us and needed to be... More

It's been a year since I last visited this place. It used to be a fav. However after waiting 45 minutes for our lunch (my friend was on her lunch break from work) I have not been back. Our food was good but service and wait time was lacking:-/

I am so sorry you had to wait that long for your lunch. Typically this time of year there is not a wait for food since we don't have the outside seating open. I'm not sure when you were here and if the kitchen or service staff were the problem. I woulld.love to offer a gift card for you to... More

I went here with a group of friends from church. We were at a VBS conference in Ridgecrest. We all had different palates and budgets. The Bistro accommodated everyone, They featured local ingredients and the best homemade pimento cheese I have ever had (And I've had a lot of pimento cheese in my life). I had the veggie burger, which... More

We've eaten at Black Mountain Bistro numerous times and have always enjoyed the food and atmosphere. They offer a great menu and it's located right in the center of downtown Black Mountain. A great place to eat and then take a walk around town.

I have found many of the "locals" do not care for the Black Mountain Bistro. But, I can tell you, we have enjoyed it many times over. They have a wonderful menu, something for everyone. It's a quaint little house with a lovely patio and parking. The service has always been wonderful. We have had their Chicken Ceasar Salad, fillet... More

Friends recommended that we try Black Mountain Bistro during a recent visit to Black Mountain. We weren't disappointed! Excellent lunch choices and specials. Huge portions and all home made, well priced. Enjoy the holiday decorations and ambiance, as well as the food and service.

We dined last minute with a group of nine. The staff was so accommodating and very nice. The restaurant had Christmas trees in every room so every table had a beautiful ambience. We had the pleasure of a fireplace and Christmas tree. The food was outstanding. Every person in our group loved their dish. The drinks also were superb. Our... More
