Definitely get a reservation for this cute little restaurant, with a nice menu and tasty food. The service was excellent and we felt at home - nice atmosphere, with white tablecloths and big windows overlooking the main street. Would come here again when in Lexington. Their burgers are quite excellent according to my son!

My husband and I moved to Lexington VA from VT over six years ago and our favorite place to eat has been The Bistro right from the beginning! The food is fresh and always delicious, the owner, Jackie, seems to always be there with a smile and an understated way of making sure everything runs smoothly, and the waitstaff is terrific. Darrin was our waiter tonight - he's a treasure! I'm told ALL the food is wonderful, but I love the salmon with wilted spinach and mashed sweet potatoes so much I never stray. We always bring our guests and family here and always leave full of delicious and healthy food and very happy.

One of our favorite places! Great food! The crab cakes are excellent. Brunch is a hit, too! Staff is very professional and service is great! Highly recommend it. Reservations are suggested.

I am sorry to say The Bistro is overrated. Four of us had lunch and none liked what we had--not good. It is cute enough--small. I only gave it the one try--once was enough.

I never look at the menu, I just always have their quiche of the day which changes daily and I have the side salad.
Plenty to eat and I am satisfied all day.
Great waitstaff...
My favorite luncheon place in Lexington,,,
