What We do, We do For You!

Bistro Nota is a locally minded restaurant located at 620 South Calhoun Street in Downtown Fort Wayne (adjacent to the Landing and across the street from the Rousseau Centre). We serve primarily French American-style cuisine in a casual, walk-up lunch setting. Currently we offer a variety of soups, salads, & sandwiches on our fresh baked bread, along with a rotating list of entrees. We take great pride in preparing our menu from scratch- everything from our pickles to our bread was made in our kitchen with thought and care. 
Also available is our line of Nota@Home meals – which are fully prepared dishes ready to be heated up and enjoyed – whether you’re at the office or just picking up a quick meal for later. In addition, we have dietary specific options including Keto, Paleo, Vegetarian and Gluten-Free.
Please check back often as daily and weekly specials change frequently!
