Great for the Valley234 Bistro has all the attributes of a trendy urban eatery6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways AmazingThis is one of my favorite restaurants and they never disappoint. Upon arrival we were promptly seated outside on the patio, I had made a note on my reservation that outside seating is preferred. We were helped very quickly and the food was excellent. The only thing negative I can say is that my date does not like asparagus, and there were not many asparagus free dishes to choose from this time of year. For an asparagus lover such as myself, that is a bonus though.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMuniqueI took my sister for lunch to celebrate her birthday. The food was wonderful! The service was great! We had such a great time!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMHusbandWe've been ther twice, and it's been very goodnight times. I would recommend 234 Bistro to all my friends.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMTurlock's finestTurlock's best restaurant--hands down! Definitely my favorite place to bring family and friends for special occasions.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch was fun!I recently treated my girlfriend to lunch here and we had a very nice experience. I had perhaps the best lentil soup of my life. There was also a Pinot Grigio that was the special for $4.00 a glass - quite the bargain and delicious as well. The server was wonderful, better experience than the first time. Although the entree coming out during the appetizer test could not be conducted due to the fact that it was lunch and I had my soup and salad come out at the same time.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMYou know what your getting.The Bistro is one of the most consistent restaurants we have ever been to. The meals are prepared perfectly each time we come. The portions never change. We know we are going to have an outstanding meal everytime. There is one downside to this Fantastic Restaurant. If you are not in the Clique. You seem to be seated by the restrooms, the very crowded hostess station or by the front door. Please do not try to switch your mashed potatoes for augratin potatoes.They will fight you over that. lol. Other than that a GREAT Restaurant.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWho would think?Never, would we have thought Turlock had a first class restaurant. However Bistro, 234 is truly an excellent restaurant right in downtown Turlock. Will definitely be returning.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI'm San Franciscan. Food was great!There only seemed to be one waitress in our area, but she worked hard and kept our ice tea and coffees filled. This is my 3rd time at this restaurant and I've always enjoyed the food and service. We had the boneless short ribs with garlic mashed potatoes, Mahi Mahi ratatouille, & seafood penne. The short rib and penne were excellent. My husband liked the ratatouille, but said the Mahi Mahi was just good. To be fair, we usually like a different type of fish, but he wanted the ratatouille. Some prices weren't listed, but bill was reasonable($180/4entrees, 3 desserts, 2 appetizers, 2 coffees, tea, tax & tip). I'm not a food snob, but being from San Francisco, it's sometimes hard to find good restaurants in other areas. The food here was great.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner at BistroFood was good service was just a bit slow. All in all a good experience, wine list is excellent and my steak was perfect!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMdinner outNever had a bad meal here. It was a busy Friday evening, but our service was prompt and excellent. Salads were just right, steak was wonderful, and dessert (we split it) was a great end to the meal. We did not feel rushed and were able to enjoy the dinner conversation.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGlad I branched outThis restaurant is not in my town but 20 minute away, so it's a big deal I even went. My daughter and I had tickets to a show in the area and decided to go there. We are glad we did. With the exception that the server was a bit less polished than what I would have expected, the food was delicious. I had a beet salad and the seared sea scallops and my daughter had the chicken marsala. had one BIG complaint though, the entree was brought out while we were enjoying our appetizers and with no apology that was not the norm. I would go again, I just hope we don't get rushed through dinner.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe menu provided just theThe menu provided just the bistro touch we were after. Everything was tasty, and the wine selection admirable. Service was topnotch.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMlove it alwaysas usual, food was great, drinks were delicious, service was friendly and outstanding, and we love the "cellar" room. we always travel from another city, where we live, to Bistro 234 for special occasions or to treat special friends.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe will be back! Great menu,We will be back! Great menu, almost too much to pick from. The only negative we had was that there wasn't a bartender, so when we ordered a night cap, we had to tell the waitress how to make it. It wasn't quite right, but I'm sure a real bartender would have made it correctly. Other than that, a great experience.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been to this restaurantWe have been to this restaurant many times, always pleased. We took friends that had never been there before, and we were very happy that our friends enjoyed it so very much.
Discovered,when making my reservation that this restaurant was listed on Open Table.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love this place. However,We love this place. However, bread was stale, and we let them know. They brought some super fresh delicious bread. Food could have been warmer. We think it sat for a bit before making it to our table. Their Diana pie dessert is fabulous!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWarm atmosphereOverall a pleasant experience. Hostess was not very helpful when I first asked for a different table because the seat be the window was too sunny and warm. The tapas plate of chicken sate was just okay. The chicken didn't feel freshly cooked, but the peanut sauce was nice. The atmosphere is great and the martinis are wonderful.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMShould be on the short listWe came to Bistro 234 as a celebration. The evening was a huge success everyone left filled with good food and good times. We have been to the restaurant before and have enjoyed our past visits as well. The food is consistantly good and the service is top notch.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat little place in oldGreat little place in old town Turlock to eat. The preparations are excellent, service is good, it can get noisy since the place is small. Reservations are a must, unless you want to wait or sit outside. The corkage fee is a reasonable $15 and the selection of wine on the wine list is not only very good, it is fairly priced. Wednesday's are a 1/2 price on wine night making the wines on the menu a bargain and a draw to go there for an outstanding meal and affordable quality wines.1/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
