I am not sure who wrote these other reviews(not on this site but on other travel sites like google or yahoo travel), or if the place has severely declined since then, but it was one of the worst dining experiences of my life. It had the unfortunate distinction of being bad, reheated food, over-priced (relative to quality), and extremely small-portioned on top of inexperienced service. For example, I was given 5 mussels for $9, which were cold and old and had no white wine sauce as described. Our entire table was dissatisfied with entrees (rubbery pork, microwaved pasta, and canned tomato sauce). Their website is severely misleading as are the other reviews which must have been written by employees, friends of the owner or the owner himself. As summer residents of this area of Vermont I would suggest other options: Colatina or Perfect Pear in Bradford, or by far the best option being Carpenter and Main in Norwich (has a formal restaurant and excellent casual bistro). I hope this helps; I was motivated to write this only after I trusted previous online reviews that left me hopeful that I had found a new great restaurant; I hope I save people from the same misfortune that is Brown's Market Bistro.

My family has had two very bad experiences at the Bistro this very week. First was Wednesday the 17th of Sept. We arrived at 5:15 for dinner and the place was locked up tight. Knocked on the window. No one around. So we left and went somewhere else. On Friday we came back to give them another try. We have been ordering pizza for 3 weeks. So I went in and ordered and then mentioned to the cook about Wednesday. All he had to say was I was here and that must have been disappointing. No I am sorry, no nothing. I returned 45 minutes later to find that he had not made my pizza. He claimed he didn't think I wanted it after i told him about Wednesday. Then the owner stepped in. When I explained what had happened on Wednesday to him, all he could say was his truck was parked there and someone was in. No i am sorry that the door was locked. No I am sorry that happened. No, Lets make it up to you. He got confrontational and I left extremely upset.He followed me out and said if I came ever came back he would call the police.WHAT GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE THAT IS!

I do not recommend this establishment at all. The customer service is very poor, the nightly menu changes all the time depending on the cook, you never know what the "chef" will be in the mood to make for the night take out menu and the pizza sauce is unseasoned and too sweet.
