We came to eat here one day for dinner. Right from the beginning we were surprised that nobody came to usher us to a seat, therefore we sat ourselves down. The staff looked like younger teens and seemed to be uncoordinated. Finally, after about five minutes someone did come to us to ask if we had menus, which we didn't.... More

I have been in the service industry for 7 years of my life, and I was blessed from the food gods, "my bosses," to be given a night off on Friday, and in turn decided to enjoy the "normal societal" world of dining out. I decided to go to a well-known restaurant in Debary, FL named Genuine Bistro. I parked... More

I brought a friend there for a birthday/business dinner. Our service was incredible. Anastasia made us feel like we were there most important table she had which made it even more special. Great atmosphere, food was incredible and service amazing. We couldn't have asked for more.

Amazing food and service. My wife, children, and I go weekly. After living in Chicago and Orlando, I never would have guessed my favorite restaurant would be in a little town called DeBary. A kid friendly restaurant that's fancy enough for date nights, but affordable enough for a family of 5. We used to drive from Deltona to Orlando for... More

Went to dinner while in town, with friends. Slow start, as a large party sat around, apparently not caring others were waiting. GREAT food! Manager was very nice, good humored guy. Very responsive, and quite friendly. I'll be back!!

This is an excellent eatery in every aspect except service. The staff did not seem to be there to give the patrons a nice experience. The fault there lies with the manager. Other than that my dinner was excellent. The patio was perfect on this balmy March evening and the Veal Cordon Bleu was beautifully presented, accompanied with mashed potatoes,... More

Arrived at 12:30 on a Friday afternoon. Inside looked busy. However "seat yourself" sign was up for the outdoor seating. As several tables were open opted for outdoors. Waitress arrived promptly with menus and took drink order. Lunch menu had several options. One ordered a salad and one irdered the ample 1/2 lb burger. Portions were large and food was... More

We have gone to Genuine Bistro many times & have consistently had great food, so we continue to return. However, the service is consistently slow!! We almost always wait an hour before eating. We really would love to see improvements so we can continue to enjoy their food.

Genuine never disappoints. My husband and I went there this evening for a casual dinner. He ordered the ribs and I had the Pacific Salmon stuffed with blue crab. Both were delicious.
