Went with my family - three generations - for dinner. Very good staff, comfortable and good food. We had calamari, crab cakes, crispy tostadas and French Onion soup as appetizers - all were good. For dinners, we had: seared salmon - VG; seafood pasta with scampi sauce; Buttermilk chicken; duck; apple-brie-chicken panini; shrimp and scallop with basmati rice and the... More

Haven't gone here too often even though I live close by. I remember the food as being fine, nothing special. I guess I have a sour taste in my mouth because I ordered a tall draft beer that was on special (advertise on the board as "22 oz blah blah". .don't remember what kind of beer it was but it... More

Whether you decide to eat at the bar or reserve a table you will always get a great meal with great service. I will advise you make a reservation for dinner. This place is always packed for dinner hours. If you are lucky you might get a seat at the bar. They do their best to try an accommodate.

Stopped here because of a simple google search for a restaurant in the area while passing through. It didn't look like much from the outside but once inside it's a beautiful space! The service was impeccable and the food was AMAZING. My dad said the chocolate lava cake might be the best dessert he's ever eaten! So glad that I... More

Christopher's Bistro is located in a small mall adjacent to McDonalds on 69 Brookside Ave. When you enter you are greeted by a very nice Hostess who will show you to the Bar Area or Dining Area. The menu is the perfect size and they always have Specials. I have been here four times now and have tried a nice... More

I'd heard good things about Christopher's but quite honestly never tried it for the silly reason that its just not very attractive from the outside. It's fairly non-descript, in a not-so-pretty strip mall, tucked into the shadow of a McDonalds. The interior did not do much to change my mind either as it too is nothing special, but the food?...

We went here on a Friday evening and the place was jammin'. Reservations are suggested. We waited a 1/2 hr and the food was well worth the wait. I had a special, Arctic Char. It was served over black rice and sautéed spinach and was accompanied by a unique pico de gallo and it was superb. My wife had the... More
