The food was fine and Carlos was very attentive and accommodating yet the prices did not justify the environment and the name "bistro." The prices were higher than Michelin 3 star restaurant figures that we had tried before.

Wow, I was not expecting “that” as far as the meal we ate at the Bistro. Non-descript, sort of Taco Bell looking from the outside, Carlos Bistro served up a great meal on the inside. My filet mignonette while pricey was just the most juicy,...More
