Bistro 109 Ratings and Reviews
A very pleasant experience tucked away in downtown Sevierville. Thomas, our server, was attentive and conversational. He made recommendations and saw to it we were pleased with our menu selections. My seared tuna was a feast for the eyes as well as the palette. My wife had the scallops and said they were really special. We can heartily rate our lunch a delightful surprise.
If they ask you "booth or table" pick BOOTH! The table section is so closely packed together you can hear every word from every other table simultaneously. Otherwise, the food is good and the prices appropriate. The steaks all appeared to be super high priced but I didn't get one so I can't say whether or not they are worth the price.
We absolutely loved this place, we had a date night with our two daughters & they enjoyed it as well. The food was amazing, and the service outstanding. This restaurant really should be in the heart of pigeon forge, it's not one we would have found without the Groupon. Definitely will be back.
Our dinner was excellent, and the server was attentive. The only thing I would change is the chairs. I thought it was just mine that didn't have any cushion, but when we left everyone was complaining. The chairs are Parsons chairs and are so old the only thing supporting you is the front and side wood pieces which made it very uncomfortable. Over all it was enjoyable and I would recommend.
We were really impressed for quite a while, until the main course came. It's a very nice looking place. Very nondescript from the outside, you walk in and there's a live piano playing. So it had a very nice feel. We had two small children with us, and we were a bit concerned they wouldn't be welcome, but we were wrong. They were really great with the kids. Fortunately, they put us way in the back, where we wouldn't have to worry about noise. Our kids are very well behaved and were probably some of the quietest people in the restaurant.
We received a couple trays of bread which were very good. As were our salads and the spiniach dip appetizer.
Our waiter was terrific as well. Very attentive, very friendly.
However, it all went down hill with the main course. We both ordered the steak dinner. Which, frankly, for a place that gives the appearance(and prices) of a high end restaurant, the steak was flat out disgusting. First off it was served, and I'm not kidding, in a pool of blood. I'm not big on appearance, but you don't serve a nice steak in a puddle of blood. I don't know how they cook these things, but they did it very poorly. The steaks were cooked properly, but they were very dry. I'm very glad i didn't pay full price for this, cause I"d have been very upset. The mashed potatoes were good, however the green beans were not edible. They tasted like canned green beans topped with sugar. Yes, sugar, they were painfully sweet. I wanted to like this place. The waiter was great, but unfortunately, i will not be dining here again.
This was our second time to the bistro using a Groupon. I wasn't as happy this time. The service was S L O W even though the place was far from being full, and the food was good but not great. If you are going for a special occasion like a birthday, know up front you will not receive a free or discounted dessert or anything.
Ordered the dinner portion of salmon, got two smaller pieces instead of one thick juicy piece. Wife ordered scallops, 6 dime-sized scallops for $20. Was seated in the bar area, bless his heart but the piano playing was LOUD and we could not have a quiet conversation during our anniversary dinner.
We've been to this restaurant a few times now. Usually, everything is great. This evening, we were seated next to a group with children. One child, who was obviously sick, vommited in a bag that they had with them. They obviously knew the child was sick but did not mind everyone else in the restaurant.
Came in with a larger group. We could not get a reservation for 17 but made two separate reservations for 8 and 9. When I called earlier in the day to ask if we could be close together I was told over the phone, "Negative." Then, however, the tone changed and he told me they would call me back to let me know, but never did. Everything was set to accommodate the restaurant - NOT the customer! We were told we could not change the awkwardly placed tables because the server needed to be able to serve us from the front (even though she spent most of the time reaching behind us) so we spent the next two hours only being able to talk to the person to our right or left. It was awkward and uncomfortable. No one in a large group would enjoy that type of seating! We were told that we ONLY had the options of mashed potatoes and green beans (from a can) for our sides. The food came out in such staggered order that by the time the last person got their plate the first person had long finished. All the chairs were very worn down and uncomfortable. And the faux leather was rubbing off on our hands and clothes. This place has the potential to be a hidden gem but greatly disappointed everyone in our party. You lost 17 customers that night. Will not go back.
Our experience was awful, in every way. We had a group of 17 and booked online reservations as a party of 8 and a party of 9, as we were willing to split up. The day of our reservation, however, a member of our party called to see if the restaurant could accommodate a party of 17, allowing us to all sit together. The response from the restaurant employee was, "That's a negative." He began back-peddling after that and said they actually could/would set us up together.
When we arrived at the restaurant, we all stood in the doorway, and no one came to seat us. The place was nearly deserted. A couple of us wandered back into the restaurant to see if maybe we'd entered through the wrong door. We walked to the back and back to the front before someone asked if we were the big party and walked us to our table. The table was arranged in a large U-shape which made it difficult for us to talk, so we tried to scoot the tables together - just pushing them forward - and the male waiter said, "We put them that way so she could serve from the middle and not reach over," implying we could not scoot together. So we sat, only able to talk to those directly beside us.
The waitress (who was also the hostess) comes out to tell us that because of the size of our party, we needed to limit our side choices to only mashed potatoes and green beans to make things easier on the kitchen. (There were probably a dozen sides on the menu.)
Service was incredibly slow, and when our food came out, it was cold, over-cooked, and not AT ALL tasty. The shrimp and grits were gross, and my husband said he's had better steak in a school cafeteria. Most plates were picked up with more than half of the food untouched, and not a word was asked regarding the quality. My husband and I paid about $60 for our meal, and I just hope no one else wastes that kind of money on this place. There are plenty of other restaurants in Sevierville/Pigeon Forge that are more deserving of a patron's money.
Though the food was excellent, the server tried to get us to order what he wanted us to order - saying the "kitchen staff are stressed". Another worker came to our table and was very condescending about our use of a groupon purchase. Our reservation was made in advance and the staff taking the reservation was told we would be using a groupon. I would not recommend this restaurant due to poor customer service.
We were in town for a Valentines weekend couples getaway. We decided on Bistro 109 for date night. We initially made the reservation for 6pm but needed to reschedule at the last minute. Even though it was a busy weekend, they were able to accommodate our party of 8.
The food did not disappoint. Each of us ordered an appetizer and entrée and each was amazing. Notable mentions include the caramel pecan chicken, the calamari and the shrimp and grits.
Our waitress was very attentive and gave exceptional service. The bartender provided much of the same. We will definitely be back the next time we are in town.
We have been to Bistro several times but this time we brought people that hadn't heard of Bistro 109. They absolutely loved everything just we always have and our server Thomas was so informative abt the food and wine. It really helped everyone make a decision!! We will all be back soon
Used groupon to try this place out. We were super excited to try something new. Our mood however was quickly changed when the waiter was vocally upset we were using a groupon. His attitude completely made the experience awful for me. Seriously, if I hadn't paid already, I would have left. Will not recommend and will never return to this place! Truly sad that his attitude totally affected such a beautiful night out with my love!
It's not fair to review a restaurant from a New Year's Eve experience, but the restaurant wasn't overwhelmed by a crowd. Took 15 minutes to get our drinks, only one salad was brought to the table when we ordered two and the waiter forgot to put in our dessert order. Steaks were so so, and very overpriced for the quality. Wine list was limited, mediocre and also overpriced.
We celebrated our honeymoon New Years Eve. It was perfect!!!! Have told all of our friends and we will DEFINATELY return asap. Thanks so much for an elegant evening. I believe our waiter's name was Travis, I hope I remember that correctly, bc he was great!!!!
