We dined at Bistro 71 on a Friday night. We had two of the evening's specials, a chicken and pasta dish, and a ribs dish. Both had excellent flavor. The portions were moderate but not too small. Our server was attentive. We ate on the back patio which was nice except for one persistent fly. A couple making the rounds of the tables, who we assumed to b e the owners, were very friendly and cordial. Just about the only thing that was not perfect was that the ribs were not quite hot enough, but my partner judged them okay. I would have asked to have them heated. Overall, good food, nice atmosphere, easy parking, good service. Give it a try.

Thank you Trip Advisor. We found Bistro 71 from TA when we were driving through the area. The food and the service were excellent. We had two appetizers (fries and lamb), and two main dishes (scallops and duck). Everything was tasty and perfectly cooked. I don't give out 5 stars casually, but we couldn't find anything wrong with our meal. It seemed pricey for a place like Chambersburg, but the price was fair for a first class meal.

We stopped in Chambersburg while traveling, and thanks to the positive reviews in Trip Advisor and Yelp, decided to give it a try. Every aspect of our meal was superlative from drinks to dessert. Service was wonderful as was Larry, the proprietor. It's not cheap, but well worth it.

When traveling through the area, YOU MUST DRIVE 5 minutes off I-81 and stop to dine at this wonderful bistro or you will be missing something special and the gem of Chambersburg! Food is creative, well prepared and the flavors are outstanding.
Lamb Lollipops, Crab Mound, Southwestern Salad and Oyster special were are amazing in quality and taste. THEN WE HAD THE MOCHA CRUMBLE which was the perfect end to a great meal! Larry and Barb who own this place are visible and wonderful hosts, engaging the patrons and they get what customer service is all about. We are foodies and will be back. Might even come for the weekend just to dine here again.

Food was terrific, nice ambiance, "drink of the day" was spot on. Live music was top notch without being intrusive.

No need to eat at a chain restaurant when there's a locally-owned great option available.
