    We have been dining at Bistro 9 ever since we discovered it! The food and service and ambiance are consistently excellent. Some of their unusual offerings (ie, clams in bean sauce) are beyond excellent - they are memorable. Bistro 9 will always remain in our repertoire of neighborhood restaurants.

    Great time with friends, good food with good portions. Our waiter was very polite and got both our food and drink requests perfect! Our take was ready when we arrived and we were never rushed to sit down while we had a drink at the bar first.

    restaurant is on the edge of a golf course which was a surprise - building doesn't look like much from the outside, but the interior is modern, cozy and clean. we happened upon the first day of restaurant week and were treated to a wonderful menu full of imaginative and tasty treats all for $15.99. The food was very good, though the service was a bit spotty. But we are looking forward to going back again and trying their regular menu which looked good as well. Lots of treats to try.

    My husband & I were at Bistro 9 to celebrate our wedding anniversary; not many restaurants are open on Monday night & Bistro 9 was. We were greeted as we walked in the door by the hostess, seated right away, the waiter was soon over to take our drink order. I chose a peach sangria; it was delicious my husband had a margarita, which was also good. For an appetizer we chose fried tomatoes; would recommend them; really good. I had the pork tenderloins, my husband had the chicken special; both dinners were yummy. We were so full from dinner that we had no room for dessert. Bistro 9 is a wonderful restaurant and we will go back soon.

    EG Country Club is a good 9 hole course, but the restaurant far outshines the course. All new wood, granite bar, great menu with tons of selection and everything we ate was on the same level as the best of EG.

    My wife and I tried this place for the first time after hearing many good reviews. We really enjoyed our dinner. My wife had a scallop dish that was very good and I had the taglietelli bolognese and it was excellent. My wife also enjoyed her drink which was an Asian pear martini. We also had two appetizer specials that were good. Our service was exceptional. We were skeptical at first as this is a golf course and appears very unassuming from the outside but inside the decor is nice and the views of the golf course actually add to the overall ambience. I will be going there agin for sure and would not hesitate to recommend it.

    My wife and I decided to try Bistro9 for our Anniversary. Our table was not ready so we opted to take the high top in the bar. Since we are casual diners, this was not an issue. Service was excellent and attentive. We ordered the white clam chowder and the soup special Shrimp Bisque. Both were excellent served with small pieces of toast sprinkled with cheese. I ordered the chicken special which consisted of a breast stuffed with ricotta and spinach served over apple risotto. My wife ordered the Rib eye prepared medium well as requested. She particularly enjoyed the Radicchio, Sopressata, Pear, and Blue Cheese Salad. Our drinks and dinner were served promptly with no rush between courses. Definitely will try again.

    Bistro 9 overlooks the East Greenwich Golf Course. The restaurant's ambiance is fair along with the food. The ginger encrusted pork tenderloin with yukon gold potatoes and asparagus was good but the pork was overdone even though I requested medium. Salads were good but not creative. The Italian food my companions had was just fair. Our waitress was very personable and efficient. Bistro 9 is just an average restaurant with average surroundings.

    OK, get past the bland exterior- the interior has been completely renovated, classy and comfortable. Wait staff are excellent and food is good and well-presented, but the big surprise is the value!! The parking lot was jammed when we arrived at 5:30pm on a Sunday night- good news gets around!!!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2004
    Dined on 2/6/2010
    We were pleased with the food preparation and presentation. My lobster over pasta with a light red sauce was generously portioned and nicely prepared, served piping hot and with a heavy hand on the butter. The wine list needs help. This may be because the place is still fairly new. The selection is unremarkable and prices are high for unremarkable. Our big issue with Bistro 9 is that we froze throughout our dining experience. There is no breezeway, so even though we were 30 feet from the entrance, every time the door opened, we got a blast of the arctic. Overall, the ambiance and feel of the place is trendy. Trendy doesn't last. Getting rid of the jelly jar wine glasses in favor of real ones would be a good beginning.
