I love the look and feel of this restaurant. The food is good and there's a large selection of meats, pastas etc. The ribeye was perfect. They also have a great selection of cocktail and wine

I love Bistro 234! The food is delicious and they have a great wine list. It's a small town but close to farms and wine country which gives us great local food and wine selections. The peanut butter pie is famous. You must try it!

I've eaten here many times but it was the first time I had the grilled chicken salad sprinkled with bacon (my request). The lettuce was fresh and crisp; the chicken was very tender and the rest of the salad parts came together as a delicious...More
