Pairings Bistro is exceptional! We enjoyed a charcuterie board and the market special (catfish with couscous and fresh mixed vegetables). The service by Eric was excellent. He is highly knowledgeable about wine selections. We highly recommend Pairings!

Great outdoor seating area with ample heaters available. The highlight was our server who, after asking about general preferences in wine, found us each the perfect glass to compliment our food & tastes!

Everything was absolutely wonderful. My husband and I went for our anniversary. Pairings Bistro really made the day extra special, even writing a Happy Anniversary message on our dessert plate. The service was great, the food was amazing. They really helped to make our special day even more special

Loved sitting on the patio with the live music. The new fall cocktails are amazing (we tried PomaMommaRita and Peachy Keen - both awesome), and the lamb meatballs and Crispy Brussel Sprouts were incredible.

A great relaxation.

It was time to 're-wine' our lives a little, examine some of our great and 'pour' decisions and enjoy the day.

Essentially, a great place to 'wine' with glasses up.

While celebrating a friends birthday, we enjoyed a few bottles of wine served to us by an exceptionally attentive server. The food was outstanding, as usual. Dining under a tent outside was quite enjoyable on a beautiful evening.

Have been to Pairings a number of times and has always been outstanding. Went for our anniversary Saturday evening. Understand COVID, but we were placed in parking lot with cars driving by 10 feet away (should have fake trees or something as sound barrier and to block car lights. We ordered and waitress came back 15 minutes later telling my wife they were out of scallops. We got our food and it wasn’t as good as I remembered, ok but not great. Ordered dessert and waitress came back to tell my wife they didn’t have the creme brûlée. Waitress was apologetic but we were generally disappointed in our $200 meal. Hoping it was just a bad night for them.

We brought our kids here — 15, 13, and 10 — and we had a great time. We ordered a bunch of a la carte items to share and everyone loved the food. The crab dip, sliders, crab flatbread, and lobster mac were the kids’ favorites. Our youngest ordered chicken tenders from the kids menu and she said she loved how they were made. They enjoyed Shirley Temples while my husband and I had cocktails and wine. What a fun night.

We celebrated my daughters birthday and they made her feel special from start to finish. We decided to do the four course meal and it was delicious. Our waiter, Eric, was very knowledgeable and attentive. We will be back again.

Food and service were excellent! My only complaint was there was a live singer outside and it was a little loud at times. Besides that I loved every minute and our sever made the birthday dinner special with champagne and candles

Pairings never fails to impress. The scallops were cooked perfectly with a delicious light breading. The beet salad with goat cheese was heavenly. Service was great. Support local businesses -- they're a keeper!
