Located downtown Chambersburg PA. Had the mussels and filet mignon. Was cooked excellent. Bar tender was great and service was great. Quite cozy atmosphere. Would go again if I ever came back for vacation and do a date night.

Can't wait to go back again.We started with mussels and the cheese board. Best mussels ever. We had Crab cakes, chicken, and Steak. All were excellent tasting. Our waitress was so kind and accommodating.

A much-needed upscale dining experience in downtown Chambersburg and a welcome respite from chain restaurants. Everything first class and well-done: cocktails, appetizers, entrees, desserts. Wait staff well-trained and well-informed. A small place but cozy ambiance.

Takes you back in time. Very nice! While in Rome as they say. Sometimes you just have to sit back and have a hot tottie or two.

We tried Bistro 71 for the first time last Wednesday night. The restaurant was fairly busy, dimly lit, but cozy. We were first seated by the entry door. That location was chilly due to the often-opened door, so we moved to a better spot. Our food was delicious and the wine special was seemingly good (50% off any bottle). Trouble... More

The food is simply amazing! I have tried several different meals, from sandwiches to full dinners and I am never disappointed. The atmosphere and wait staff are wonderful, perfect for couples or small groups of friends. I recommend reservations!!!

I visit Chambersburg occasionally to visit family. We typically either eat in, or ate somewhere the family has been going to decades. I was hoping to get to Bistro 71 during a visit because on paper it had the potential to be a legitimately good restaurant outside of sentimental favorites. I got that chance recently. I like the decor, exposed... More

I celebrated my birthday here recently and was pleasantly surprised when one of the specials midweek was lobster stuffed with crabmeat. It was delicious! My husband and I have eaten here several times and we have never had a bad meal. There's great service and we love the cozy ambience. My only complaint is that the wines by the glass... More

We visited Bistro 71 for lunch, and were charmed by the warm interior, warm brick walls and friendly professional service. The Bistro salad was tasty and creatively prepared. Roasted romaine lettuce, bacon, blue cheese and roasted pumpkin seeds needed no dressing. But the dressing was delicious enough to be irresistible. The turkey club sandwich was luscious, served on generous slices... More
