Savor made-to-order meals at our restaurant

Before taking your prospective student on a tour of Iowa State University, start your morning with breakfast at Bistro 1864 Restaurant and Bar, located on site at the Radisson in Ames. Dedicated to fresh, made-to-order food, Bistro 1864 is also a great choice for dinner and cocktails. If you prefer to dine in private, you can order a meal from room service during breakfast and dinner hours. If your schedule has you up late, walk to our 24-hour Market for a snack, a cold drink or a packaged meal.

Bistro 1864 Restaurant and Bar
The menu at Bistro 1864 includes a diverse array of salads, appetizers, entrees, sides and desserts, all made fresh in our kitchen after you place your order. The American-inspired menu features favorites like the Iowan skillet for breakfast and chipotle chicken sandwiches for dinner. If you love craft beer, choose from our expansive selection of local brews.

For a wide range of snacks and packaged meals, make your way to our Market. You can also pick up a cold bottle of water or a soda for a jolt of caffeine.

Room service
Enjoy a delicious meal delivered to your door with our convenient room service, available during breakfast and dinner hours.
