My daughter and I had lunch together and really enjoyed it. The appetizers were delicious. We shared a naan bread it was really good but I found on one side it was a little over done hence the overly dark crust. The cheesecake and mousse pie were excellent. We did have a nice time and the service was excellent.

Had an absolutely excellent experience. Met up with a friend for lunch, sat outside on the patio. Umbrella for shade on a scorcher of a day. The Nechako River made for a beautiful view as we enjoyed our libations and a delicious lunch.

We had family from out of town (Tssawwassen), 2 guests with mobility concerns and an unexpected “extra” person to join our reservation of 6. The staff handled everything so beautifully. The food was amazing and we had a lovely afternoon. I was so proud of what Prince George has to offer!

I had the Seafood Miso bowl and was disappointed. Not one scallop and it was swimming in sauce, it took away from the seafood taste and the wine. Kim was a great server!

We enjoyed ourselves. The only small complaint would be a few more items on the menu. All four of us did enjoy the food we had and I have to admit that even though the menu was limited the food was good. If I had to make a choice I would rather have a limited menu with good food than a larger menu with average food. We will be coming back again. Prince George has a limited amount of good restaurants and your Bistro is defiantly one of the good ones.

L-O-V-E The Northern Estates Winery. Excellent service, food never disappoints, views are spectacular. Appreciated that the "background music" was "in the background, this time. Previous visit, that was an issue. If I have any less than glowing comments, it regards parking. The parking lot beside the restaurant is very small and the overflow parking is across a busy road that has a lot of traffic with no traffic lights or designated crossing area. I am hoping that is a work in progress.
