    The minute my wife and I walked into the Bistro Rollin we were greeted by the owner and made comfortable. The wait staff was attentive and polite and eager to provide any information about the restaurant and its menu. The entire staff made our anniversary dinner very special. We certainly would return as we were made to feel welcome as if we have been coming to the restaurant for years.

  • A Perfect Celebratory Meal!!
    customerVIP
    Dined on 8/2/2014
    It was a special occasion and four of us were present to celebrate a birthday. One of our party was on an extremely restrictive diet (vegan, with many extra exclusions) but the chef amazingly went beyond all expectations and managed to meet her needs. Others in our party had the skate, (perfectly done) hangar steak, (done exactly as requested), and a specially ordered steamed lobster for the birthday celebrant (who was VERY happy with her meal!) Somehow the chef made a standard offering, a day's special, and two off-menu specially requested dishes all appear simultaneously, and all done to perfection. I can't thank the chef, management, and staff enough for turning our celebratory meal into a truly memorable one!

    Everything was good here, no complaints at all. Waiters were very attentive and it seemed like the hosts were the owners and they were very welcoming. I had the salmon which was delicious and my husband had the lamb which was also very good. Raspberry Napoleon for dessert finished the meal off well with the French Press coffee.

    not up to par. Despite only two full tables when we arrived, , the waiter offered us a table at the entrance inline of waiting staff traffic. I declined and he offered an equally unappealing location until I pointed out two tables open near the window which he reluctantly gave us. He did not tell us about specials. We began with pate which arrived with 2 tiny cornichons, no bread or crackers. I had the skate which was gray, mushy and tasteless as if it had been cooked the day before and reheated and came with a few olives and tomatoes and limp, unseasoned spinach. My friend had bland, tough flank steak which needed a sauce and was tough and gamey. Very disappointing. Did not feel the food or service was worth the price.

    Having recently moved to Pelham from Manhattan we are trying out the eateries in the village. We were very happy with our first PV experience. I would have enjoyed Rollin in the city. The fact that it is local to us is perfect. We will be back I'm sure. I do wich there more fish, specially salmon and swordfish, on the menu.

    We had high expectation going in and the price sort of validated that. But the food was just okay and the wait staff was terrible. He kept mixing up the order, i.e. do not remember who ordered what, and seemed too tired to serve us on a Sunday morning brunch.

    We discovered Bistro Rollin last year and have gone back several times. The raw oysters are very fresh, and everything we have ordered has been good. The menu is bistro French, it is a pretty restaurant inside and out, and the service is impeccable. We think of it as a special occasion restaurant, but families from Pelham bring their children and come often.

    We have not been to Bistro Rollin for a while, and decided at the last minute to go out to celebrate our anniversary. We had a great meal. All the food was delicious. My husband especially loved his duck and I had some tried and true standards which didn't let me down - frisee salad and crab cakes. Both were delicious. The service was also excellent - attentive but not overbearing. We will definitely plan to return in the near future!

    The crab cake appetizer was phenomenal. We enjoyed the lobster rolls, but they didn't measure up to the numerous lobster rolls we had in Maine last summer. If you get on their email list, you sometimes get special offers (which is what encouraged us to go that night). Since the weather was good, we chose to eat outside instead of inside. A very pleasant evening.

    We have been going to Bistro Rollin since their opening a few years back when we lived closer in Scarsdale. We now live in Hastings on Hudson and still travel the distance, despite our having some of the very best restaurants right here in Hastings and the other river towns! The Bratones (sp?) could not be more gracious. It's a pleasure to visit them, eat their more than superior food. We continue to bring/meet different friends there and they then become devotees also, in each instance. Our son and daughter-in-law are moving right around the corner from them so by virtue of this writing I advise them to prepare for another onslaught of take-outers! I think that surely tells the story.

    Bistro Rollin is a dining delight. The owners extend themselves to make sure you are comfortable in every way- seating, food and wine choices, and ambiance. The food is outstanding, from brunch through lunch, dinner and dessert, and served in as friendly (including kid-friendly) an atmosphere as any in Westchester. Outdoor dining, when weather permits, another plus. The more often you go, the more you appreciate it, and menu variety. Pelham's gem.

    Dined on 3/19/2014
    During the recent restaurant week we decided to give Bistro Rollin another chance, having found it only acceptable a few years ago. The first clue that this was not going to be a winner was the menu that offered a "New Orleans style crab cake" appetizer. As an ex--pat New Orleanian, I know that while people there love crabs, they don't fix crab cakes. That's a Chesapeake Bay specialty. The raw oysters were nicely shucked, but my wife's escargot was a glutinous, inedible mess, and our steak frites were a bit overcooked. The evening ended with a ricotta cheesecake that looked and tasted unlike any we've ever had. I suspect that the restaurant simply doesn't know what it wants to be. This is certainly not a French bistro. C'est la vie!

    I had an amazing experience tonight at Bistro Rollin. The waiter (the gentleman with a crew-cut) was exceptionally accommodating, and managed to fulfill our every wish with a smile and a charming manner. My fiancé is a foodie, and she's hard to please. The chef - and wait-staff offered us a delight at every turn. I had wanted to try the house made cinnamon ice cream but I didn't want a full dessert - so the waiter was gracious to let us try a sample. This is a restaurant that puts customer service - and great food - on the same level.
