The service was terific! The owner makes sure he introduces himself to everyone. The food is out of this world. I love the ambiance. It is just a great place to stop and have a great lunch or dinner, and drink.

The Bistro is amazing on all fronts; great service, food,drinks, prices, atmosphere, everything. There is not a bad dish on the menu. You can have a full entree, just tapas, or both. Some of my favorite selections are the filet mignon tartare, brussel sprout salad,...More
