Quite simply put the Sold Out- French Wine Dinner I attending on Thursday Jan 17th at the Round Bistro in Gastonia was “Fantastic!” The dynamic duo as I call them: Aaron, managing partner, front of the house extraordinaire and Jack, Executive Chef, and also a managing partner together created a delicate, well balanced menu that would rival the best restaurant’s in Charlotte. A six course, wine paired dinner that began with baked Brie drizzled with a raspberry currant sauce paired with Gerard Bertrand Cremant Rose, to a Lobster Bisque, followed by a Hot Wild Salad Tossed in Basil Vinaigrette topped with Smoked Pork, Duck L’ Orange, Rabbit Cassoulet, ending with Gerard Bertrand Chateau l’ Hospitalet Rouge paired with a Chocolate Truffle Trio that was just delightful. I understand this is number three in a series of wine dinners and I am just sorry that I missed the first two. This is actually my second visit to Round Bistro and I continue to be impressed. We finally have a great local restaurant that focuses on farm fresh to fork ingredients with an innovative menu that is a true culinary delight. I can’t wait to see what Aaron and Jack do next! Thank you for bringing your vision and experience to Gastonia. Too everyone else, if you have not tried Round Bistro then you are missing out.

From the minute I stepped into the restaurant, I had nothing but good vibes. The hostess met us, my husband and me, at the door and seated us promptly at a table. The menu was very easy to read and the prices were very affordable. We had the appetizer, and 2 entrees for $20. Awesome deal, and plenty of food! For the appetizer we indulged the onion and peppers with the ranch dipping sauce. I believe I could drink the ranch! When we asked if we could substitute a salad for the corn, it was no problem. The waitress kept our cups filled and made sure that we had a pleasant dining experience. Wonderful food, great service, and affordable bill... we couldn't have asked for a better outing.
The waiters and managers here are fantastic! They're very kind and understanding! But I'm afraid their kitchen staff either doesn't care or doesn't know what they are doing! Our food was way over cooked! The waiters were awesome and fixed it all!
