We have gone to Genuine Bistro many times & have consistently had great food, so we continue to return. However, the service is consistently slow!! We almost always wait an hour before eating. We really would love to see improvements so we can continue to enjoy their food.

Genuine never disappoints. My husband and I went there this evening for a casual dinner. He ordered the ribs and I had the Pacific Salmon stuffed with blue crab. Both were delicious.

I have praised this restaurant highly in the past, and the praise was well deserved. We visited it again for a late lunch. They do have dining divided into a more lively area outside, with music, and a quieter dining room inside. That's a plus. I again had the pulled pork quesadilla. It was still very good, but was lacking... More

There is seating outside infront of the restaurant but it is loud with cars and motorcycles zipping by. We started with the Atomic Shrimp. They were HUGE! A lot of breading but the sauce that was on the side was very hot. I had the turkey salad which again was huge. I couldn't finish it but it had nice tender... More

The Bistro is always very good on the tongue. Recommend time to allow for crowds as this local favorite can sometimes be very busy. Service is always professional and plesant.

The waitress was very accommodating and did not rush us yet was there checking on us routinely. My wife and I each got a Waldorf Chicken Salad and we both really enjoyed the fish. Our friends, who...

We have had dinner at Genuine Bistro with mixed feelings; I'm always happy, her not so. We went to brunch with high hopes and were not disappointed. My burger was perfectly grilled with Gorgonzola, Brie and carmelized onions, bacon and mushrooms . It was fantastic. She had the Belgian waffle and although it had a bit too much banana sauce,...

A group of 15 stopped in for lunch at the Genuine Bistro in Debary and was treated to some awesome food and service. There was not a complaint among us and most everyone had a different order. The proportions were more than adequate and not an order was mixed up. I can vouch for the rack of lamb, not only... More
