Staff is efficient and polite. Owners are a delight to talk with. In my opinion, Bistro 29 is one of the 2 best restaurants in town and is worth a visit... More

Food here used to be good, however, the owners took a vacation and never came back-never even told their patrons...I am required to put a date in here, but it's been over two years since anyone could visit restaurant.

What a wonderful place in the desert...great small bar where you can eat from a fantastic menu - best cowboy steak I have ever had! Daily specials offer some great home style meals. Friendly local conversation at the bar and good pour drinks!

If you are looking for an upscale dining experience in the area I definitely recommend this place. It's legit, but not a full 5-star experience. Tough not to give it 5 stars but I am comparing it to some tough competition.
