My wife and I ended up going into the Main St. Bistro on consecutive nights for wine, appetizers and live music. The appetizers were great, and the nice thing about the live music, is that it started early. We were in there around 6:30 both nights jamming and having our food. Didn't try the pizza, but there was a steady... More

Roomy, easy to find, family-friendly, full bar, spacious rooms, tasty, reasonably priced food and a great place to expose kids to excellent jazz in a safe, friendly environment. Pizza is a mainstay, the ball games are on up above the bar (separate room from the music room) and you can watch people stalking the not-so-mean streets of Guerneville as you... More

I had oysters to start. Great, local and a good deal. Then a pizza with artichoke - lots of yummy plump veg. The crust was thin and very tasty. Lots of choices - fun and good

I'm starting a sightseeing adventure of the Pacific Northwest and I was exhausted. My first stop is Guerneville and the host at my lodging recommended the Bistro for dinner. I walked into the restaurant and it was very quiet at first. I sat at the bar and ordered a glass of wine. The bartender, Kris, was incredibly friendly. He was... More

The spaghetti and meatballs was very yummy. I did not like the style of bruschetta without the tomatoes in the lovely sauce. The Caesar salad it was very good. The singer was incredible and I loved the jovial atmosphere.

While up in the Santa Rosa area this past weekend, my wife and I decided to take a side trip to Guerneville for lunch. Downtown is not very large, but they do have a lot packed into a very small area (breweries, oyster bars and a variety of resteraunts). We decided to try the Main Street Bistro. What a great...

We were seated immediately without reservations. It took a little while for a server to come to us, but we were told upfront they were busy and understaffed. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. We had pizza and bread pudding for dessert. Both were very tasty and were ALL eaten! There was live music the night we were there;... More

Had an amazing prime rib. My girlfriend had a seafood risotto. We sat away from the live music towards the back and it was a good volume. Friday night seemed busy. Would definitely eat there again!
