The service here couldn't have been better. Billy the manager couldn't have been more professional and accommodating. Veteran waitress Laurie was also exceptionally adept with menu selections. As it was Friday we decided to try the seafood entrees. The cod with a tarragon infused sauce...More

Bloomsbury Bistro has the best food in Raleigh. It has been around a long time is generally forgotten by the "food critics". They only care about "new" restaurants. If you have not eaten at Bloomsbury, you are missing out.

I've been eating here for 20 years and I've never been disappointed. If you like French cuisine with a Southern twist, this is the place for you. My most recent visit had me eating Crab Rangoons with cole slaw for an appetizer, a very moist...More
