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."

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."

  • "Absolutely perfect. Service and food quality is exactly as it should be. The owners are visible and very accommodating. This is worth a drive from anywhere in the Tampa Bay Area. This had quickly become one of our new favorite restaurants."

  • "This is just what Dade City needed........GREAT food, great atmosphere and great service. I am never disappointed when I go to eat there. Since Sangria is my drink of choice, it makes dinner even more special since that is there specialty!!"

  • "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 Bistro is definitely a "hidden gem"! I never knew it was there until just the other night and I took some friends from out of town there. We didn't realize they closed at 8pm but they accommodated us and we had a wonderful meal and experience! I will be sure to make this one of my frequent places to eat but will be sure to get there earlier next time...lol"

  • "I would highly recommend the City Market Bistro to anyone. It has a family feel right away from the time you walk into the door. The Owners and Staff and so polite and welcoming. Then we have the smell as you walk in. The sweet and woodsy smells of the oven let you know you are in for something delicious. The environment is welcoming and warm with unique décor all around. 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."
