We decided to celebrate a late Valentine's Day on the following Saturday this year. We picked The Bistro based on reviews and suggestions of friends. The restaurant wasn't not busy for a Saturday night, we were 1 of 3 tables seated in our section. We ordered 2 appetizers, the seared tuna and the escargot. The tuna was fine, I've had... More

I think you pay for the ambiance at this restaurant. The food is fair and the portions are small. I don't mind splurging a little bit for a fancy meal, but when you leave hungry, that's not good. Healthier portions for big men!

Service was great. Bar tender/server was fantastic. Food was ok. I was happy with the capreese salad cheese and tomatoes but the balsamic needed more strength. The wine was just not right. Not sure why but it was not there. Server went out of her way to help. I appreciated it. Lamb was good. The texture and taste was good... More

Took our in-laws here for Sunday brunch and wished we hadn't! This place has really gone downhill. There were only two other tables with guests when we arrived, and three waiters. We were seated at a dirty table that had not been cleaned from previous guests that morning, even though there were plenty of other tables available. Took the waiter... More

I tried this place several times and they never ceased to disappoint. Won't ever be going there again. They were good for about 5 min when a chef from NYC moved here and was in the kitchen. Apparently creative difficulties caused him to leave and they went right back to sucking.

For the prices, this place is surprisingly average. The service was good, but the food was disappointing. I got the blackened grouper, which was barely blackened and tasted like nothing but lemon juice. My husband ordered the black and bleu steak which came out covered in so much melted bleu cheese that it was hardly recognizable. It looked very unappetizing,... More

Our dinner and evening at The Bistro last Friday evening was an unexpected wonderful surprise. Our server, Ashley was adorable, friendly, accommodating and personable. The food was great and we were delighted by the beautiful piano playing of Raymond Piece. Highly recommend.

I cannot believe that this place is not packed every Friday from 5-7!!! They have half price appetizers and $5 drinks. Our friends love to come here and meet after a hectic week. Try the tuna app. It is to die for! Have also eaten dinner here. It was excellent too and very affordable.

We just had a couple of cocktails, a little desert, and listened to a little live music here, what a great find! Ambience was lovely, the servers were very professional, knew when to talk and when to leave us alone and not intrude into our conversation (so appreciated!).

I have eaten at this restaurant many times and the food has been great every time. The drunken angus is amazing and better than steaks from anywhere else. Sometimes it takes a while for the meal to arrive, but it has always been well worth the wait.
