What a gem! The garden is heavenly, the menu is imaginative -- we were delighted with everything we chose -- and our waiter was knowledgeable and welcoming. Our lunch was the highlight of a wonderful day trip from Baltimore to Shepherdstown, and we absolutely will make the trip again.
I’ve eaten in all manner of establishments, from gas stations to Netflix special / notable chefs, and let me say how blown away I was by bistro 112. Unassuming but with a tempting menu, I went in knowing nothing else. The service was excellent - attentive knowledgeable staff. I’ve never encountered an eatery with more decadence towards the interest of children, and my child scarfed down the entire meal. The house made menus are gorgeous and worthy of their own review. My cocktail was delicious and unique. The food was top notch, as a party of 5 we ate a little of everything on the menu. A $5 bread basket with a perfect assortment of beautifully executed carbs and butter which is now my new standard for butter? I’ll take 10!! The salad was fresh and dressed perfectly, but the show stopper was the soup of the day. Maybe if I stop by enough the chef would share the recipe because it was divine. Skinny fries (the best kind). Ambiance was good, it was well appointed and decorated neatly, though the proximity of tables (small building) did feel a bit rowdy at times. I’m done raving about our excellent experience and recommend you test it out for yourself!
Kid-friendliness: I can’t say more about the kid friendliness for an upscale eatery of this type not what I anticipated and was so impressed
Parking: The meters here are serious. Bring quarters. Plan 1 for every half hour, or use your phone.
Excellent atmosphere. Whether you dine streetside (excellent people watching), the dining room or the back patio (my favorite), you will love the ambiance and atmosphere.
Every dish is excellent, but not to be missed are the steak tartare, which to my surprise was better than Bistro Di Coin's(DC), the escargot and French dip.
This had the most amazing food ever!! The server was so nice and friendly!
Beautiful restaurant inside and out. Outside patio area is gorgeous- try to get there while the weather is nice. Staff is fantastic food is delicious and very reasonably priced. Yummy wine and cocktails. The owner J couldn’t be nicer or more friendly.- she should be applauded for her beautiful taste in her gorgeous renovation of an beautiful but very old building. You will swear you are in a bistro in Paris. I had the Virginia trout - delicious. And I must mention the bread - house made daily, 4 different kinds and house made butters. OMG - it was so delicious I almost couldn’t eat the dinner because I ate so much bread. Cudos to the chef and the entire staff. I just wish I lived nearby - it would be my go to place. But I will make a point of stopping whenever our travels are anywhere near bistro 112! Thank you for a lovely evening.
I had the Croque Monsieur and coffee. It was a very elegant and filling brunch. I asked for a little Dijon on the side but it was very nice. Service was great and we ate outside in the quaint courtyard.
We went there for brunch. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful without being intrusive. My husband had the Ahi Tuna Salad Nicoise and I had Oeufs Benedict, which the person who seated us recommended.
Everything was delicious, including the arugula martinis. I forgot to photograph the peanut butter and chocolate tart, and the strawberry shortcake.
