    We've lived in the area for 3 years but had not heard of the City Market Bistro. I'm glad I stumbled on it. This was a great restaurant with great food, wonderful service and a nice atmosphere. We will definitely go here again. We had steaks the first time, but I'm trying the wood fired pizza next - it looked yummy.

    City Market Bistro has the best food in Dade City. The menu has something for everyone. Their pizza is amazing and comparable prices to the likes of Pizza Hut, etc. The dining room is not very big so during busy times or for big parties I would highly recommend a reservation. Will go back over and over again.

    City Market Bistro is the place to dine if there are mixed dietary needs or a variety of preferences in your group. They can accommodate gluten-free diners, vegetarians, and every other type of diner. Their menu is vast, meals are individually prepared to order, and the quality of the food is outstanding. Can't wait to visit again.

    As always, the Bistro was the place for a "reasonably priced" champagne brunch. The service was friendly and very efficient. The "spirits vendor" was open to any suggestions (crushed blackberries) in the champagne flutes. The eggs benedict were "right on", and the mascarpone cheese and berries french toast was wonderful. If you can save room for desert, try the almond cloud. If not order it for a "to go" box and have it later.

    We have finally found a restaurant that serves champagne Sunday brunch that doesn't cost an "arm and a leg". The City Market Bistro offers a very pleasant brunch menu, in a very nice atmosphere, with an efficient staff. My Eggs Benedict were nicely done (although one of the poached eggs was a trifle overdone. The muffin was not chewy (as you will find at the high priced buffets). The rest of the table had the French Toast and the poached eggs and hash. Some thought the hash had too much thyme, but everyone has their own rase levels. The individual with the French Toast hardly spoke a word. In fact I really didm;e see him put his fork down until all was consumed. Special thanks to Chelsea for her service and flair.

    Ate at Market Bistro on a Saturday night. Very pleasant atmosphere; we had a reservation and arrived a little early and were seated right away. Found the restaurant quite noisy - maybe some rugs or other deadening material on the walls/ceiling would solve the problem. Knowledgeable staff. Really enjoyed my meal, which was petite filet mignon, perfectly cooked, and a glass of wonderful sangria. Wondered why they had run out of bread? Our friends also enjoyed the restaurant. Would have no hesitation in recommending it.

    Based on Open Table reviews my wife and I tried City Market Bistro on March 20. Turned out that Thursdays are build your own pizza nights. Any toppings plus 2 beers or glasses of house wine for $22 . A good deal and a very good pizza. The wait staff and the owner were very attentive and friendly with the owner relating the history of the building as well as their involvement in the restaurant. The restaurant was full and a little noisy but all in all this is a neighborhood gem in the sleepy town of Dade City. The restaurant is not large so be sure to make a reservation.

    We have been going to the bistro since they opened. Its refreshing that they are updating their menu regularly and the owners listen to there customers suggestions for new dishes. Had fresh grouper recently that was very good. They also have a house chardonnay that 1.5 lit. for around $25.00. Food is always consistently good.

The whole experience will have you back for more, time and time again.

    My wife and I drove a little over 40 miles to try this restaurant. Needless to say, I will be making the journey for many times to come. The filet was OUTSTANDING! It was crusted with Truffles and Romano Cheese. My wife had the Duck Breast, too, it was out of this world! The sides here are second to none too. The steak fries and sweat potato fries are great. My family, I have 3 children, so when we have a baby sitter come over we like to take advantage and enjoy good food. City Bistro is the type of restaurant that we will take advantage of! They have GREAT food, and the staff is very friendly!

    Good food and coffee. If a restaurant serves good coffee it lets me know as a diner that someone is paying attention to the details. The server was polite and attentive. Never an empty water glass or coffee cup. The bistro has creative and welcoming decor. The owner stopped by each table to check on his guests. Even though I was sitting alone at a table for four and there were people in line, the owner encouraged me to stay and read the newspaper after my meal. In all a pleasant dining experience in a charming small town.
