Food was great. Staff was rushed. Not their fault, but many people came at one time. Fine if you don't have a tight schedule and are just enjoying the beautiful location, evening, food and company! Remember it's a BYOB!

We enjoyed. Really good food! You should try salmon in mango salsa or their house special crab cakes. Delicious!

The food was pleasant and the wait staff tried hard, but overall my daughters and I all decided to skip this place. The appetizers are quite good, although calamari seemed overcooked. The entrees were too big and too bland. Something you would get in a good diner.

The seating outside was charming, but it was a hot day and my kids wanted to sit inside. Again, the decor was attempting to be upscale, but failed and had a slightly shabby look.

For a restaurant that calls itself a French bistro, this is anything but.

Hate being negative, but it is a distant second to SeaGrass which is only a few block away.

Extremely disappointed!!! Our table was dirty & sticky. Food arrived cold and undercooked.

My husband requested a soda with his meal & received a glass with lipstick on it. I requested an ice tea and received my drink with a toothpick in the ice served with it.

Before we left after paying $80 for an early dinner, I asked to speak to the manager. After I reported the incidents to him, he
didn't even flinch or apologize for the incidents.

The Manager of this Bistro showed absoultely NO interest to our concerns.

We strongly recommend the Sea Grass restaurant in Ocean Grove. Food is superior and the service was wonderful!!!
