West Plains Bistro is a classic European style bistro that offers a taste of Paris in Burlington style. Using local, seasoned ingredients, the restaurant serves everything from steak to quiche for lunch. The dinner menu features exciting chef’s specials daily, along with other tantalizing menu items from a Filet Mignon to halibut fish and chips and more. The restaurant has an early bird menu that is served from 4pm – 5:30pm. The homemade soups offered by the restaurant have won awards and are famous among its patrons.

West Plains Bistro offers a unique dining experience with the décor theme oozing European-inspired charm. The wrought iron tables are adorned with stained-glass lamps and bouquets of fresh flowers, giving a vintage feel. The outdoor patio is a true gem, as it is modeled to replicate a picturesque Parisian street. West Plains Bistro also offers professional catering services, including staffing, beverages and food.

We were here celebrating my B/D . Had Caesar salad and French Onion soup and the pasta dujour. Elbow pasta with mushrooms and red pepper and 3 shrimp tails on. Would have preferred tails off.

We are a group of ladies over 60 who enjoy getting together for a tasty lunch and a visit. West plains is our popular choice. Only complaint is the lack of suitable parking. One of our ladies is disabled and you only have one spot she sometimes has to park down the road.

Would have liked more vegetarian offerings and use of local non-factory farmed meat but otherwise this place is an underrated gem.

…same old, same old…. Excellent as ever! Only detracting factor was that the noise level was much higher than normal. Possibly a larger group getting together for the first time? At least it was”happy” noise!
