Very disappointing and this is the third and last time we will go to the Bistro. The first two times I gave them the benefit of the doubt, not any more.

We went to dinner tonight at the Bistro with another couple who eat there at least twice a week. This was our first time there and were looking forward to a lovely dinner. After over an hour waiting, we noticed tables who arrived after us being served their dinner. When I said something, our waiter huffed away and then returned when he realized he never put in our order. After two hours, we were finally served. We were not comped a drink, a dinner, and barely apologized to. For me, I'm not going back.

Really liked Edgewater Bistro when it was in Charlevoix. Went there today with two friends for lunch. What a disappointment! The servers were not helpful, but tense and unfriendly. One acted like we inconvienced her by stopping in for lunch. We ordered and waited over one-half hour for our meal, without being told why there was such a long wait. Others who came in after us were finished eating. I finally called to our server by name (because she was avoiding walking near our table) and was told that our order did not go in correctly and had to be re-submitted; but it would be served quickly. When asked by another member our party how long that would be she admitted that it would be at least 15 more minutes. We left at that point. What was really annoying about this was that no one came to our table while we were waiting for our food and explained this to us. If I had not asked we would have continued to wait. The atmosphere there was tense and unfriendly. Once asked our server was very apologetic but the whole atmosphere was not relaxing. I have always enjoyed the Edgewater Bistro but it will be a long time before I will return.

Same owner and chef just bigger space and a nicer kitchen. One of the many good restaurants in Charlevoix, Mi. The mix for the margarita is freshly made with lemons and oranges and good tequila and a little Triple Sec. my wife had the whitefish, I had mushroom soup and sushi- a crab and shrimp tempura roll and our companion had a Pizza and fresh salad. All were excellent and were delivered quickly. We sat by the window overlooking the small pond and had a scenic view of the golf course behind the pond as well. Our server kelsey was on the ball and had a great smile. You could tell she enjoyed working at the Bistro. We will be back! The bar is a wonderful place to gather and watch sports and just be with friends.

This restaurant had a beautiful setting and delicious food. However, the waitstaff and cooks still haven't ironed out getting the food to the people at their tables. We waited nearly an hour for dinner, and probably 30 minutes just to get bread on the table. The waitresses kept apologizing, but it didn't seem to be their fault. Admittedly there was a large party in the back room, but it seemed to that the restaurant was not ready for the other diners. Parties that had been seated before us were fed and out of the building before we got our dinner. The food was delicious, and beautifully presented once it arrived.
