Bald Headed Bistro Ratings and Reviews
We got the $14 scallop appetizer and only got 2 scallops. The main course the Antelope was good, but not worth the value of $32. Service was okay, but with a bill for two closing on $200, the service and food let a lot to be desired. My wife and I were trying to find something different rather than our staple Chattanooga restaurants all the time, but for us this was a bust.
This used to be the best restaurant in the entire Chattanooga area. There wasn't even a close second. Unfortunately the quality of the food and the service has gone downhill over the last 2 years. The price, however, has not. It used to be an expensive restaurant that was worth every penny. Now, it's just another restaurant with nothing really distinguishing itself from every other decent restaurant except it's more expensive than the other comparable restaurants. What a shame! It was an amazing restaurant for years.
Overall the food and service were great. We had to wait about 15 minutes even with out reservation. As we were getting seated my wife reached to grab the seat of the chair and ended up with a handful of what we hope was chocolate. The chair was switch and my wife had to go to the restroom to clean her hand.
We came for the Easter Sunday brunch. The salad and dessert portion of the buffet was excellent. The main courses and vegetables, not so much. My reservation was not until 1:30 so the food was cold by then. We thought the dinner was a little over priced. Nice ambiance.
Surprise location for my son's birthday. It was well worth the drive from Nashville. I saw your story on TN Crossroads...and they were right on target with their praise! Everyone enjoyed appetizer, salads, and entrees...awesome food! Our waiter, Caleb, was excellent. He shared background on BHB, and was kind enough to share some travel tips for a scenic route as we continued to Atlanta. This summer I hope to drive down from Nashville again and encourage my brothers from Atlanta and Gatlinburg to join us. Thank you for a great experience in a great atmosphere.
We hadn't dined at Bald Headed Bistro in a few years, but had always enjoyed past visits. Our server, Jody, did a great job making us feel at home. He was knowledgeable about the menu, made great suggestions and provided just the right amount of service without hovering. The menu had just recently changed. The only issue was with one dessert not seeming to be very fresh and he promptly removed it from the bill. We will be back and asking for him.
For the past 4 years I've taken my wife on our anniversary to the BHB, and i'm sorry to say i will be looking for another place because the last 2 visits have not been satisfactory. Our most recent visit my wife ordered the filet, and doing his job the waiter ask her if she would like to get the prime filet (MUCH BETTER CUT and MORE EXPENSIVE). Well she agreed, and regrets her choice because only 3/4 (if that) of the steak was eatable due to the toughness.
I like making the online reservation. It was very easy and I got a confirmation quick. The wedge salad was probably the best I've ever had. We had the surf and turf and it was more food than we could eat so we took a "to go" plate with us.
Our waiter was new on the job according to what my wife heard and we found that to be true. I noticed that the other waiters were asking their tables if this was a "special occasion". Our waiter didn't ask, but we were celebrating our 41st anniversary. Also noticed that ever other table got bread early on, we never were offered any. I could have asked but wanted to see if he ever caught on and he didn't. He took our plates back to the kitchen to put the food in the to go box and apparently forgot about it. My wife noticed that he walked back in the room, saw her, and turned around to go get it.
So you would think for a $100 meal their service would be better, but I guess everyone has to start somewhere.
