Two brothers opened this place a few years ago. They had a concept, but have updated it to make it even more appealing. The place serves sustainable foods, "clean" dining and a welcoming atmosphere for singles, couples, families etc. I'm delighted to come here to...More

Located in the back of a strip mall, Real Bar & Bistro is a hidden gourmet gem. The inventive Wood Fired Octopus with pickle purée and sunflower seeds was delicious. The Hamachi with almond and radish was sublime as was the Sweet Potato and Marscapone...More

The only reasons I'm not giving this restaurant before is because the service is a little bit slow and the large screen TV takes away from the ambience. I think they should stick with one TV over the fantastic bar and get rid of the...More

We arrived at 7:30 on a Sunday eve. Not a soul in the place. We were hungry so asked for bread. For $5.00 we were given two dried up pieces of focaccia for 4 people. I've said this before, if your bread is not fresh,...More

There are not too many places around like this, It's very pricey but you definitely get what you pay for. These guys make everything amazing-from their mixed drinks to their truffle fries-never had anything I didn't like. If you catch the happy hour-its even better-all...More

Service is friendly and attentive. I feel like they are so close, just not quite there with menu selections. Nice atmosphere, and again, good service. Not a lot to choose from on the gluten free side, which is a bummer, so, I stop in for...More

I tried 3 times. Father hovers over entire restaurant. Son who thinks he created pizza argued with me that he created a pizza I have been making for years, I didn't really care but he was such a jerk. In a strip center, $20 something...More

This restaurant is hidden in a strip mall, but the food is first rate!. We started with the Fritelli appetizer, then the three of us ate Duroc Pork, Steak Frites and I had the amazing Lasagna with a Bolgnese sauce. If you don't finish with...More

There was a new menu since we had visited, some of our favorites were gone, but the additions are nice. Everything here is fresh and 'real'. For dinner we split a minuto mozz, hubby had the Duroc pork (was undercooked at the beginning), and I...More
