  • NYE Dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 12/31/2013
    My boyfriend and I went here for our NYE dinner because the party we were going to after was near the restaurant. Now I know it was busy being that it was NYE, but they seemed adequately staffed , but service was SLOW after 5 minutes, order taken almost at 30 minutes, no water or wine refill, etc. She didn't even try to recommend a bottle of wine when I asked for a recommendation. I don't expect you to know everything, and I appreciate her sending the sommelier over, but our server did minimal work for the 20% tip we left on our $220 bill. I guess I'll go back on a slow night, because we did love the food, but their servers weren't prepared for a busy night, especially for how small the restaurant is.

    I don't know of any restaurant that is as beautiful as Bistro 1130. The service is top notch and the food was fabulous. The only thing that could have made it better on New Years Eve was live music, but we still had a wonderful time! The sommelier really knew her stuff and was a joy to talk to. Her recommendations were spot on!

    A great New Year's Eve pre-fixed menu with few but excellent choices. The wine steward made a superb recommendation. We had no idea they had been there for three years but we will soon visit again and add them to our list of favorites.

    We were very pleased to find this French restaurant in our neighborhood. The chef creates some very interesting combinations and pairings of flavors in each of his dishes. No detail is too minor. Very good all the way from bread to dessert and everything in between. More people should try this one. Your taste buds will appreciate the journey.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 11/23/2013
    Our food was very tasty, and the drinks and service were great. The one thing we both found rather annoying was the chalk board approach to selecting entrees. We had to leave the table and stand in the middle of the restaurant to read the chalkboard. It seems it would be a much better idea to have the server bring the options to the table either by individual chalkboard or by printed menu.

  • Just OK
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIP
    Dined on 11/16/2013
    Located in a strange end of a strip mall we had a little difficulty finding the entrance, which you had to walk around what seems like the rear of the building to get to. The interior was well decorated, and only a few tables occupied on a Saturday night, so the volume was very reasonable. Diners are presented with several styles of presentations for their entree, which was somewhat interesting, but lends toward indecision which would work best. I'm of the opinion that should be decided by the chef, not the patron. The food selections we had were ok, but I felt it a little pricey for what it was. Wine by the glass was of decent quality, but again, $15/glass is getting on the steep end of the scale for just a "good" glass of wine.

    This restaurant has great ambience. My food was mediocre but I made the mistake of ordering Thai cuisine at a French restaurant. Stick to what they do well and I think you will enjoy it. The service was a little rushed at the beginning but after we trained the waitress to slow down it ended up being very nice.

    Seldom do I make these evaluations, even rarer to give top grades, but our experience last eve at B.1130 was worthy of five stars. The server was outstanding. It felt like we were the only ones in the restaurant. A very low noise level. We like the menu options, called "Land and Sea, Styles: one from column A, one from column B. I had the trout risotto, the wife had the salmon picatta. Both were excellent. Portions are quite ample. One test of a good restaurant is the bread, which was quite good. I had a white Burgundy and a chard, both of which were very nice. An important point is that the restaurant is quite easy to get to from anywhere to the west, just off of 141 and Clayton. I would hope more people would find and enjoy it.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 9/7/2013
    We wanted a nice evening out with old friends - talk over a good bottle of wine and great food. Bistro 1130 was absolutely perfect. The service was understated and efficient. The menu is set up in a way that allows the guest to choose the preparation of the entree. With the guidance of our waiter, this allowed our table of experienced diners a little creativity in our meals, which was fun. One guest is a vegan and the Chef did an outstanding job for him. The risotto dish served was outstanding. We called ahead with his special meal requirements and we were certainly accommodated.

    Found this gem at the suggestion if a friend. Was very impressed by the quality of the food and the portions which seemed just the right amount. The combination of flavors on both the Bib salad and salmon were surprising and terrific. Wine list was more than adequate; quite good in fact. Only relative downside was the service which seemed a little rushed. Overall would definitely recommend this and plan to return. Have already suggested this to others.

    Bistro 1130 was one of those places that I had driven by many times and I never realized it was there. My wife and I dine out every Saturday and wanted to try somewhere new. From the second we walked in the door we were amazed that this gem of an eatery exists in our typical suburban town. Food was off the charts and the service by our waiter Dan was terrific. What a great place for a date night or want evening out. We will be back soon and will tell many more about this excellent little place.

    The overriding factor of not recommending this restaurant is the prices charged for the items on the menus. Have been to many restaurants in this category but this one is out of line. Also not sure what type of restaurant it is trying to be. Can't comment on individual items because waited too long to do review to remember what was ordered.

    Our first time here and we were very pleased with this upscale restaurant. We liked the fact that you choose your protein and select the preparation. They did a fine job with off the menu requests as well. Steaks were prepared as requested. French onion soup is delightful and the cheese board was a highlight. We couldn't understand why the restaurant was not very busy on a Friday evening. It was a little pricey and could be a factor.

    Bistro 1130 has a slightly different take on classic French food in which you choose your entree, then decide how it is prepared. Once we got the hang of it I can see the flexibility in the menu. Beautiful room, very nice ambiance. We'll be back.

  • Gourmet food in a strip mall
    VacationerVIP
    Dined on 6/16/2013
    This place is like a well kept secret. Who would expect gourmet in a strip mall anyway. The food is absolutely outstanding. Ina's a chance to sample the filet (with the optional duck fat - so decadent!) and the spring risotto with perfectly prepared scallops. Both superb. The interior is beautiful. Also not expected given the location. The only problem is that the place was almost empty. I've dined here twice, both admittedly week nights, but it was too quiet both times. My son said "why are there no people here?" His alarm system for food quality. Thankfully false alarm.

    We had become creatures of habit - we eat out a lot and we had a routine of 5 or 6 favorite places we had fallen into a regular schedule with - if it was Wednesday night we were at Olympia's and so on. We decided to shake it up a bit and try something new last Wednesday night but didn't want to drive far - Open Table suggested Bistro 1130 which was a mile and half from our home in Town and Country. It was a very pleasant surprise. The food was excellent, the décor very cozy and interesting, the wine list while not large was very well put together with an excellent selection of quality varietals. The service was friendly and efficient. We will definitely add this to our schedule considering the location and the quality of food and wine.
