We received a gift certificate and were so satisfied that we will be back many more times. Not a steak and potatoes kind of place. The menu was Asian inspired but more than enough choices for the 4 of us.

We enjoyed a wonderful meal, very relaxing with attentive waiter, but not in your face. We didn't feel rushed, excellent wine selections, and unique atmosphere

Excellent service at the Bistro for a Monday night dinner. The Charcuterie plate was a very nice appetizer; the salmon salad was delicious. The "Hollow Burger" which includes an egg was a unique treat. Highly recommend.
