This authentic French bistro has been located in the heart of Historic Downtown McMinnville since January 2003 by NYC veterans, Deborah and Jean-Jacques Chatelard. Serving traditional bistro fare from cassoulet to coq au vin in a cozy home atmosphere, Bistro Maison captures the essence of Oregon’s wine country. Currently open Tuesday-Saturday.
Well worth the Thanksgiving dinner option!
For years we have cooked Thanksgiving dinner at home, but with covid and our youngest off at school in Colorado, we decided to forego the cooking and let Bistro cook our holiday meal. And what a fabulous dinner they served! From the fresh oysters to the Chinook salmon, turkey and dressing, and the cassoulet, everything was spot on. Deborah is always great with wine options and Jean Jacques rocked it in the kitchen; we are pretty sure we have a new Thanksgiving tradition going forward!
Amazing delicious food and service!!!!!!
Outstanding!!! Fabulous service . Wonderful choices for vegetarians and other goodies. Creme brulee and French onion soup are Fantastic!!! 😍
High Quality Food & Service
Definitely the best dinner we’ve had this far in McMinnville. It was obvious they pay close attention to their ingredients. Everything we ate was fresh, vibrant, and absolutely delicious. We hope to eat there again before we head back to the New Orleans area.
My favorite restaurant in McMinnville!
What a great place. Hard to get in to, so call for reservation! Seating is very tight, but not unlike some French bistros in France. Windows were opened, so wear some thing warm. But they will give you a blanket. But all of that is worth it. It's kind of entertaining at the same time. To watch the 3-4 ladies running this restaurant and everything worked out so smoothly. These women were hostessing and serving and everyone was very patient and friendly. The menu has so much on it, it's hard to pick. We shared the soup which they split in 2 bowls. It was outstandingly delicious. Split the Caprese salad, as well, and it came with delicious garlicky toasts. I loved that the food came out with plenty of time between courses. My husband got the Pork chop and I had the special Halibut with veggies. Both, were very good and good portions, that we had to box some up. Just watching these ladies run this restaurant so effortlessly was nice to see!
Prepare to be wowed!
Escargot and the Salmon were incredible!!!!!! We came in from the rain for a drink and appetizer and stayed because the service and food were too good to leave 😘
