We went for Mother’s Day lunch. It was amazing- from the service in the tasting area to the dining experience, I was impressed. Must try the lavender cheesecake!

Even though it was a rather gray day the atmosphere was so cheery and pleasant. My wife and children and I were excited to spend mother's day brunch in this lovely setting. The wine list was great. The food was elegantly served and we all enjoyed our meals very much. The service was pleasant and professional. We will definitely be back.

The food was excellent though somewhat pricey. Staff were very friendly. The noise level from the tasting room was high owing to a bunch of screaming girls. The view across the vineyards was beautiful.

The venue in the vineyard is great. The service was fantastic. My meal was fantastic but my wife’s choice not as good. It is very loud and was even hard to hear the waitress. The wine selection was not that appealing.

Another great lunch at Bistro 42. We had great appetizers and wine. Great surroundings, beautiful sunny day, and friendly staff. Our only issues was that it took over an hour for us to order our mains - this has not been our experience before. They explained that there was an issue upstairs, and gave us complimentary sparkling wine. We mentioned that the music was too loud, and they immediately turned it down. Once our mains arrived, they were also delicious.

The bistro was booked for a private wedding and party so we shouldn't have been able to reserve a table however when we arrived the host warmly welcomed us and made special arrangements for us to sit at a table nestled among their award winning wine bottles. The service from our waitress was fabulous and the food equally as pleasing. My steak was cooked to medium rare perfection and the evening's signature gnocchi got rave reviews from my husband. Our wine selection, the Cabernet Franc, was deliciously full bodied. We will definitely return and look forward to the warmer weather when we can enjoy the outdoor patio overlooking the vineyard.

Service was great and the host was quite accommodating however, I was disappointed in the food. I wanted to have the stuffed chicken but it was served with scalloped potatoes which I do not like. The feature dish for the evening was a filet with duchess potato so I asked our server if they could switch the starch. She checked with the kitchen and the chef said he only had enough for the feature plates so I went with the feature instead. I wanted my steak meadium rare and it came over medium. The vegetable was so overcooked it was wilted and looked like leftovers. It was served with only one small duchess potato that had flattened out and looked like a glob on the plate. Being a chef myself, my biggest wonderment was how could the chef have run out of duchess potatoes when there were only three tables of two guests the whole evening and most of them did not have the feature plate???? Hmmmmmm... I wonder if the chef is new to the business. We were a table of two, didn't have any dessert and the bill was well over 200.00. I won't go back.

It was my 46th Birthday with 6 of my family members. Everyone loved their dishes, even the children who are picky eaters. The service was excellent 10/10! The lunch could not have been better!

This establishment was amazing from start to finish! The entire staff (Monica and Mary) were so welcoming and knowledgeable! The space itself was beautiful and warm! We thoroughly enjoyed the wine tasting (all wines are made on site)! And everyone loved EVERY dish that was served. If you are in the area or just passing through, be sure you don't miss out on this gem! It's totally worth it!

What a beautiful establishment with panoramic fall views. The service and food were both outstanding. There were three of us who shared wine and a few tasting plates, plus dessert and we were happy with everything we tried. I cannot wait to return to try more dishes!

A long overdue and greatly anticipated visit for our dinner at the Bistro 42 - exquisite view on roof top overlooking the vineyards, with the warm September sunshine this past Saturday. The Salmon meal was perfect. Wine selections were lovely. The Blueberry Lavender cheese cake -- exquisite. We will be back VERY soon! This is truly a Gem of a place!
Thank you!!!

Will go back ! Loved the atmosphere and what a view as the sun is setting behind the grape vines. Our server was excellent- attentive but not clingy. She answered many questions with both knowledge and a smile. Her wine and food recommendations were spot on with our tastes.

Bistro 42 is not inexpensive but we felt that our meal, wine and overall experience was worth the cost.
Looking forward to the going back as the menu changes with the seasons.

The Charcuterie tray of meats, cheese, fruits, crackers and other items is a must. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The service was good. We were not rushed to "turn over the table". There was a party/celebration of 12 + at a table nearby. It got loud at times but overall the acoustics was fine. I have already recommended it to several friends. Well worth the drive.
