“Must go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

Hands down, one of the best restaurants in the area! For families or a couple. Food is fresh, local and prepared exquisitely. The atmosphere is second to none. Affordable prices with prompt, attentive service. Do yourself a favor and dine here. You will not be disappointed!.

“Listen To Me!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014 via mobile

If you are driving down 95 through Virginia and you need lunch, do not go fast food. Go to Downtown Fredericksburg and stop there. We happened on this restaurant and are not normally adventurous, but were so happy we did. Lunch menu is small but everything sounded delicious. I will admit, my husband and I only shared two things as we had a later party and didn't want to fill up. The chicken black eyed pea soup and Cali BLT were excellent. We talked about that sandwich all day long! Place is cute and has an artists work hanging that was fun to look at.

“Valentines diner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014

We went to Bistro Bethem for our Valentines diner. The Grilled shrimp were very nice. We had the "Beef two Ways". The hanger steak was very good and the brisket was delicious.

“Someone thinks highly of themselves”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014 via mobile

The food is fine and the atmosphere is nothing special. It's just good enough but thinks very highly of itself. Go on a Tuesday night for a fun drink special and to avoid the over the hill gang that's trying to show off.

“Good food, Great Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2014

Full of locals on a Friday night and the hostess tried to give us a rather bad table, but after asking to move we settled in and had a great evening. Our waitress was wonderful and made great suggestions, including a very reasonable but excellent wine. My meal was almost fabulous...great lox in gin and pork cheeks cooked 12 hours (to die for). My partner eat more lightly but enjoyed his soup and salad too. Both of our desserts were only OK (hence the almost fabulous comment)...but still a very nice evening.
