You 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 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 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 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
