  • "Took my wife for a nice dinner out. This place was recommended to me by an Applebee's Regional Manager. That should have been my first hint. The Owner met us at the door, and promptly seated us for dinner in the bar at a high top table. The table was loose to the point of being unsafe for dinner plates. (They have a handful of booths for dinner, but it's really just a bar). For a wine place, the wine list was short on quality wines. The spring rolls were a" Chef's Specialty". I've had better out of the frozen food case at Safeway. Danielle was a nice server who should be working someplace better. This is a seedy place and we left after the appetiser. Pass this one up."

  • "Bistro Al Vino combines high quality live music, excellent personal service, and great food. When our very busy waitress brought me the bacon wrapped scallops by accident, instead of the filet mignon, I was so happy because the scallops were even better than what I thought I wanted. And the Rombauer 2011 Zin was awesome! We originally visited Bistro Al Vino in 2006 after being brusquely treated at the pizzeria next door, and it is one of the places to go/things to do that we know we need to do more of to be happy."

  • "My husband and I made a reservation for Valentines Day. I ordered a dinner salad and fish and chips, my husband ordered the ribs. After 45 minutes my dinner salad arrived. After about a hour we noticed a few dishes sitting under the heat lamp in the kitchen window since we were seated close to the kitchen. The dishes sat under the lamp for nearly 20 minutes with several people (including our waitress) taking a look at them without picking them up. After they had sat for nearly 20 mintues, the owner finally picked them up and brought them to our table. We mentioned it to the owner who said he would bring "fresh" ribs back. What we got was the same ribs reheated and tough as nails. Needless to say I do not think we will go back."

  • "My group booked a table for a recent band performance. Bistro Al Vino went out of their way to give us a great table near the stage, and the service (even while packed with music patrons) was impeccable and the food and drink perfect! They go out of their way to make things work well!"

  • "It is a bar that also serves food. Do not go for the food, go for the bar. That part is fine, the service is OK but the food is pretty miserable."

  • "Nice local place to have a glass of wine and some appetizers or food. The menu is not huge but the entrees are delicious and not the usual fare you find at other places. My husband had the BBQ buffalo ribs - meat fell off the bones. I had the spinach ravioli, the tomato sauce had good flavor. The ravioli were 4 large squares, a decent sized serving."

Anytime they are having old school music I'll be there. They have a tomato soup with grilled cheese croutons. It is awesome!!"

The owner is a hoot and absolutely makes the evening. The wait staff seems to love their jobs and wants everyone to enjoy it as much as they do. They also have great bands and dancing. Love the place and will definitely spend many evenings there."
