Diner Reviews
  • "Service staff was very responsive throughout!! The Ceaser salad outstanding. Try the $10 upgrade offered during "Happy Hour Dining Menu"...we thought it was worth it to have seabass. Food and service Consistent every time we visit. Portions are geneous. Only minor negative....we thought the Chef was a bit too generous on the white miso. My motto, "Why Eat at Home"."

  • "This was our second time dining at this restaurant and it didn't disappoint. Prior to dinner we had a drink at the bar during happy hour. The bartender was so friendly and efficient, we enjoyed our time there before dinner. We had another couple with us and everyone enjoyed their meal. We will definitely be back soon!"

  • "We went to this restaurant since I love Sea bass and wanted to try their #1 favorite. To my surprise, it was very fishy. My husband ordered pork shop with risotto, another disappointment, the risotto was over cooked. We will give this restaurant a second chance, but will order something else."

  • "We are locals and it is our favorite place in town. The waiters or waitresses are very friendly. The sea bass is delicious and the tenderloin is great. I also recommend the salads. I am European and my fiancé is American. He knows I am hard to please when it comes to find the right restaurant. Every time he says " let's go to bistro 821" he puts a smile on my face."

  • "If you have a special occasion(an anniversary, a birthday, an engagement) this is the place to go to celebrate. The food was outstanding. The best scallops I ever had. I started with escargot, which was very tasty. Loved that croutons were cooked on top. Nice touch. My husband had the sea bass. We celebrated his birthday. This was our first time here, but definitely we will be back."

  • "We dined here for the first time last Saturday night. I had made reservations at 6:00 PM for four and were seated immediatley upon arrival. By 6:30 every table was full! We all ordered from the wine & dine menu (2 entrees & a bottle of wine for $32.95). Several of us ordered a salad for a few dollars more which was great. Everyone enjoyed their meals...my sole dish was wonderful and my husband had the shrimp stir-fry and he said it was the best he had ever had. We will definitely be back."

  • "We had an excellent meal at Bistro 821. Order by 7:00 PM and it's $33 for two entrees and a bottle of wine. Four of us each ordered the Pork Piccatta which was outstanding. Even the free wine wasn't bad. Service was friendly and attentive. Will definitely return soon."

  • "We couldn't get a reservation during the early bird special that suited us, but we had read such good reviews that we decided to pay full price. Well worth it! I had to order the sea bass that people raved about and I was not disappointed. It was perhaps the best meal of my life! My husband ordered the shrimp and was extremely pleased. (We both tested each other's and agreed that the food was exceptional). Highly recommend!"

  • "Excellent service. However, my pork chop was the strangest fattiest chop I have ever seen. Risotto was mushy, more like oatmeal. Not what I had looked forward to."

  • "We were met at the door by one of the owners - William Holcomb and he seemed genuinely happy that we chose Bistro 821 for dinner. The menu is quite extensive but, the deal is the "Special" that includes two main courses with sides and a bottle of drinkable wine. The sea bass is not offered on the $33 special but, for just $10 more you can order it along with a terrific salad. This is a steal. We were glad we were early birds as the place seems to fill up by 6:30 or so. Our server - Chrissy - was also very good. A nice personality with just the right amount of friendly kidding, knowledge of the menu, and efficiency. "
