Bistro on Main regularly donates its time, energy and resources to worthwhile causes in Northeast Ohio, fostering a mentality of care and compassion, so the people of Kent, Stow, Akron, Hudson, Twin Lakes, Silver Lake, Cuyahoga Falls, Tallmadge and many other communities can continue to help each other.

    What others are saying about us.

    "After a fantastic meal and wonderful service we left wondering why we'd never visited you before. Our son and his wife live just around the corner from the Bistro and they suggested it and we were certainly glad they did. Your eclectic menu has something to please everyone and with two adults, two kids and two of us old folks everyone found something they loved."

    Doug S.


    "My wife and I were in last Saturday for our 20th anniversary celebration. We were whisked to our table in a matter of minutes of arriving and all was there as I had requested from you. The flowers, champagne and glasses awaited our entrance. Belissima! My wife was truly surprised and I was more than relieved. Thanks to you all!"

    Jim R.


    "I was there for dinner on February 11th as a surprise for my daughter’s birthday. She and her husband live in Kent, and are regulars at the Bistro. I live in Evansville,IN, and whenever I visit with them, a trip to the Bistro is a must. Our dinner was delicious and our service was excellent–as it always is. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience EVERY time we’re there."

    Linda G.


    "My husband and I were celebrating our 37th wedding anniversary when we recently dined at the Bistro. Our service and food were all excellent. We will definitely keep your restaurant in mind for future dining. Thank you."

    Karen and Al S.


    "We always enjoy our time spent at the Bistro! The meals are excellent without fail, service is great and the atmosphere always inviting. I look forward to many return trips."



    "Just letting you know that our visit to the Bistro on August 4th was incredible. I loved the blue cheese, raspberry, pecan salad, the porchetta-wrapped fish, grilled asparagus, and choc pot….not to mention the wine we had. On top of the wonderful food, our waitress was the perfect balance of attentive but not annoying. We hope to come back for our next special occasion! Thank you."

    Jennifer L.


    "My/our dining experience was absolutely wonderful! Our service was outstanding and the food was both creative and delicious. I have recommended your restaurant to everyone I know whenever the subject of dining out comes up. We are a long way from Kent, (Medina), or we would visit much more frequently, but we are certainly looking forward to our trip your way!"
