My wife and I came here after seeing this place featured on D, D, and D. My wife had the Pahd Thai and I had the Fire Pasta. Both were delicious. We ended the meal with the Ginger Creme Brulee. That was also very good. We were there for lunch on a Saturday between 1 and 2pm and service was... More

Love this neighborhood bistro. Super friendly staff, absolutely solid selection and execution on a nice diversity of dishes in small, easy-going environment. Love the burgers, fries, chicken curry, and steak salad.

In my opinion, This place has no ambience, our waiter had no personality and the food was mediocre at best. How this place rates high on trip advisor is beyond me!

On our cross country road trip, we tried an out of the way place for dinner as opposed to his favorite theme style restaurants. He walked away impressed and we both had great meals. I had the "Fire Pasta", which was great, as was the Bistro Steak. Service was great and it will be a great "hole in the wall"... More

We came here off of a recommendation of our Air BNB host. It was within walking distance from where we were staying, and we really enjoyed walking through the neighborhood to get here. Once inside, we learned that Guy Fieri had visited here, and we knew the food was going to be good. We weren't disappointed! My husband and I... More

This delightful bistro is tucked away in a mall so it's got lots of free parking. The staff are super friendly and attentive. It's clean and upbeat with awesome food. I particularly liked the option to create my own salad but I ultimately chose the Baja blackened shrimp salad with avocado, cabbage, mixed greens and cilantro-lime dressing and it was... More

Tucked away on the lower South Hill by Huckleberry's and Rosauers you'll find a sweet "Picabu Bistro" Neighborhood Restaurant. We both ordered Pad Thai and so enjoyed our selection. We didn't have an adult drink this time, but will when we return and we will return.

We first heard about this bistro after watching an episode of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives with Guy Fieri from Foid Network. He recommended the Cactus burger so we decided to give it a try. It is spicy, but has an amazing flavor! We now eat here anytime we make a trip to Spokane, which is a 2 hour drive. Staff... More

We've been here many times and the food is always good - usually great! This time I tried their pad thai and while tasty, just wasn't what I was used to (probably because it's not an Asian restaurant.) Nevertheless, everything is always very fresh and the service is pleasant and attentive. The fire pasta is worth driving WAY out of... More

From the time my mother first brought me here with my two young daughters I have been in love with the food. Angry prawns are amazing! Whatever I have chosen off the menu has always been good. And kudos for the smiley face chicken for the kids and a push pop with every kids meal ; )
