We've eaten at Black Mountain Bistro numerous times and have always enjoyed the food and atmosphere. They offer a great menu and it's located right in the center of downtown Black Mountain. A great place to eat and then take a walk around town.

I have found many of the "locals" do not care for the Black Mountain Bistro. But, I can tell you, we have enjoyed it many times over. They have a wonderful menu, something for everyone. It's a quaint little house with a lovely patio and parking. The service has always been wonderful. We have had their Chicken Ceasar Salad, fillet... More

Friends recommended that we try Black Mountain Bistro during a recent visit to Black Mountain. We weren't disappointed! Excellent lunch choices and specials. Huge portions and all home made, well priced. Enjoy the holiday decorations and ambiance, as well as the food and service.

We dined last minute with a group of nine. The staff was so accommodating and very nice. The restaurant had Christmas trees in every room so every table had a beautiful ambience. We had the pleasure of a fireplace and Christmas tree. The food was outstanding. Every person in our group loved their dish. The drinks also were superb. Our... More

We ate supper at the Black Mountain Bistro on a Saturday night. The wait wasn't long. I thoroughly enjoyed the trout; the crab cakes were disappointing with too much oregano or another spice. The seafood chowder was flavorful but crowded with potatoes. For dessert, I would highly recommend the bread pudding - delicious! Overall, a good meal but a little... More

This is our third trip to Black Mountain but our first time eating at Black Mountain Bistro. I had the meatloaf and my wife had the spinach and arugula salad. While I thought the food was good, it wasn't necessarily great. And the service was just so-so. Nevertheless I would come back and recommend it to others.

We got the veggie burger with fries and coleslaw, veggie flatbread with fries, and fried green tomatoes! So very good. The fries are fresh cut and the tomatoes are perfection! They also have awesome desserts! Pies and cakes! Will definitely be back!

Great little Bistro, with a very expansive menu and reasonable prices. Highly recommend one of their specials, the smoked turkey and dressing with garlic green beans and mashed potatoes. Please note, there is MORE than enough to share, which is what I should have done!

Thank Ken B
