    This was our third time to the restaurant and the food was fantastic. The waiter was very attentive to our needs and even had the owner go out to get some espresso so we could enjoy it with our dessert.

    We have fallen in love with this place. We live in south Myrtle Beach but have realized with Hwy 31we can be there in same amount of time as we can get to a MB restaurant. The food is better, the service is better and they accept reservations so there is no waiting in line in 90 degree heat. A diverse menu that allows you to order something light casual or fine dining. I have never had a bad meal and I always order something different. A great selection of bourbons also. A definite must try.

    We love this place. Have already booked reservations again. Menu variety is great. Food and service are great. Only issue I have is when we first arrived all of the tables seated were on one side of the dining room while the other part was empty. Would have liked to have had some distance as to not hear conversations on all sides of us. By the time we left it wouldn't have mattered the place was packed. The secret must be out.

    Take 5-10 minutes and head to Bistro 90...You won't regret it. In fact, it was so good that we dined at the Bistro on a Monday night and made reservations to return on Wed night. The apps-fried green tomatoes/lump carb sauce; mussels; and calamari...Fantastic! Variety of seafood, steaks/chops, and pasta is awesome. Each night has new specials. Incredible pizzas to satisfy the kids and adults alike. Great cozy bar to start off the eve with a pre-dinner cocktail. Incredible music to create the mood (Sinatra, Krall, Buble). Staff service/owner- awesome. Bottom line, I travel and eat great every week in Vegas. I would put Bistro 90 up against anything that LV has to offer. BTW- this is the first review I have ever taken the time to write.

    We found Bistro 90 on OpenTable and were very pleased. It isn't located in the hustle and bustle of Myrtle Beach making getting to it easy. The food and service were great. The owner checked on us a few times during our meal and answered questions regarding the wine list very knowledgably. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking to go out while in Myrtle Beach as I don't believe you will be dissatisfied.

    B90 was a mixed experience. We were happy to find a spot away from the traffic of the strip with a promising menu. The atmosphere/layout were a bit cliché, but the live keyboard was nice. The menu offered an appealing variety that made it tough to choose. The staff was professional and friendly. In the end, the fried green tomatoes and zuppa di pesce would definitely bring us back again, but we wouldn't make the drive to Longs to dive into another pasty plate of highly oversauced pasta. An increased focus on perfecting existing menu items rather than offering 5 entrée specials may increase repeat business.

    Tuesday night we enjoyed another great dining experience at Bistro 90. A Mussels appetizer followed by an amazing Stuffed Veal Chop , topped off with a Cappuccino was most enjoyable. Our party of four all raved about their entrees and we all look forward to our next visit. The dining music was special.

    We decided to venture inland, away from the chains and long lines on Business 17. As we traveled inland I started to wonder if we strayed too far. We opted for an early dinner at 5:30pm and found only a couple of cars in the private parking lot. It was nearly full by 6:30pm.Our meals were exceptional. I opted for a Center Cut New York Strip (20 oz., USDA Prime) and my wife the Penne Carbonara. My wife is an excellent cook and is very tough to please. She loved her penne and I was thrilled with my NY Strip. Do yourself a favor and pay Bistro 90 a visit. Avoid the chains and hype of the glaring Las Vegas lights of Business 17 and enjoy their friendly service and exceptional food.

    Second year in a row we've headed to Bistro 90 for a great double date during our annual pilgrimage to MB. We enjoyed the experience and food so much last year, we had to go back this year. Notes: Food is terrific. Bourbon is pricey and they poor way to light, so I'd stick to beer or wine. (High price bourbon is listed as a single oz serving, but others are still too small) Last year, the ambiance was terrific, classy clientele. This year, the classless came in with their large parties boasting flip flops and baseball caps. Seriously, it's a nice place, least you can do is not wear a baseball cap. I was tempted to pull a Tony Soprano and throw the hats off their heads. Would be nice if the restaurant would request they remove them.

    While on vacation in South Carolina my wife and I decided to have a date night, We chose Bristo 90, because it was in a quaint neighborhood. The Butter beer sauce steamed clams sauce were fabulous choice as appetizer, Dinner selection we chose was the 10 oz filet mignon with the port wine reduction sauce and the stuffed veal chop was melt in your mouth delicious. Our waiter John knew the menu well and the service he provided was outstanding. Very nice touch with a quite tone a piano playing woman supplying soft back round music. We will definitely return to the restaurant, and it is a highly recommended to those who haven't been there.

    My favorite is their signature dish, Bistro 90, which is pasta in a pesto cream sauce with sun dried tomatoes and asparagus. It is available with chicken but I opt for the veal. It is truly a treat. Their specials are also very good. The management and staff ensure a pleasant dining experience each and every time. I recommend Bistro 90 to all my friends as the grand strand's best kept secret; however, I have never been there when business was slow. I recommend reservations.

    We dine at Bistro 90 frequently since we are local restaurateurs ourselves . In addition, we have dined at almost every upscale restaurant worth a visit from Wilmington, NC to Charleston, SC. I can count on 1 hand the number of restaurants that are worth a repeat visit. Bistro 90 is among that distinguish group of restaurants. They have a great variety from authentic Italian dishes, USDA Prime steaks, and this last visit I tried a Local Grouper preparation with watermelon salsa that was to die for. I cannot forget the incredible wine list that always seems to have something new lately. Only a short drive out Highway 90 from North Myrtle Beach and a hop skip and a jump out HWY 22 from Myrtle Beach restaurant row.

    We relocated to the MB area about a year ago and have been trying various restaurants in search of the quality we were accustomed to in our previous location. This restaurant is a gem. I can't say anything bad about our experience there. Most notably there were many choices on the menu which we could see ourselves trying on future visits. We both had specials as well as items from the menu. The food was prepared as requested and was very very good. The service was attentive but not overbearing. Great ambiance. Wonderful music from a skilled entertainer at the piano. A very pleasant evening. We are sure to go back.

    A good-not-great spot sort of near N Myrtle Beach. Definitely not your usual beach restaurant- more like a Brooklyn bistro with a wide variety of Italian-American items on the menu. All that I and my dining partner had were good but not great. Wine list is outstanding, and something you don't see much in the rural south: Pappy van Winkle in their bar.

    Traveled from Germany to Myrtle Beach for Spring Break with our daughter (from Indiana) and in-laws (from New Mexico) and while we were there, we celebrated our 27th Wedding Anniversary. OUTSTANDING food, service, ambience, and staff. Anita was fantastic - attentive, friendly, caring, and extremely knowledgeable and helpful - a true professional. We enjoyed many items, including the Duck Breast Dumplings, Filet Of Masami Ranch Rib-Eye Topped w/ Colossal Crab & Foi Gras Butter (specials that day), the ribeye steak, Mozzarella Caprese salad, Jumbo Shrimp Scampi, Rigatoni Sorrentino, and tiramisu. The extensive wine list complemented our meal! Truly a great dining restaurant experience and one that we will try and return to one day!

    Bistro is in a rural type area about 12 miles from downtown Myrtle Beach but it is worth the trip. Went for an early dinner and restaurant was reasonably quiet. Service was superb by both server and owner. Food was very tasty and freshly prepared. Veal Parmigiana that my spouse had was enormous and accompanying linguini was very good. My stuffed sea bass was very tender and tasty and well as large. Accompanying whipped potato in a half skin was superb. Key lime crème brule and home made ice cream are desserts not to be missed. Only downside was cold temperature when we arrived but it was immediately rectified when we asked to have the heat turned up.

    Our Experience started in the bar where we had a couple of their over 40 Bourbons, (Best Selection in the Area). From the Jumbo Blackened Sea Scallops appetizer to our Prime, 20oz Rib eye steaks, which they hand cut to size, (size on the menu is 14oz), our dining experience was amazing. The owner helped with a wine selection from their list that won a Wine Spectator award. Fresh in house made desserts finished the night, along with a cappuccino. We missed the live entertainment but the background jazz music was very well selected. Most importantly the service was on point, just enough attention with no hovering, and no rushing. Don't miss this place, it's not on the main drag but worth the 10 minute drive!!!

    I like to think that I am fairly critical and let a lot of minor stuff bother me when I dine out at a restaurant. I didn't have a single gripe about this place and the manager and our waiter bent over backwards to accommodate any and everything we needed. This place is awesome if you are looking to enjoy a great meal outside of the hustle and bustle of the normal Myrtle Beach scene. Our food was some of the best Italian I have had a restaurant and the dishes that I saw brought out to surrounding tables look phenomenal as well. You can not go wrong stopping by and trying this place. Take it from someone that doesn't usually care to write reviews. I took the time to write this because it is absolutely worth it. We'll be going back in August.
