    The service was outstanding. The owner is very personable talking to all his customers going from table to table. Best of all, the food was outstanding. Everyone at our table enjoyed their dishes from appetizer through the desert. The price fixe menu is a great value.

    This was our second visit, and we again had a lovely special time, from the roses on the table to the friendly staff, to the memorable food. The seafood scallops were tender, the Gorgonzola stuffed homemade ravioli was amazing, and I am afraid I am addicted to the apple cheesecake.

    Dined on 3/7/2013
    There is one menu choice if you want to eat healthy: the shrimp salad. If your only choice is salad starter (soups are creampbased), your choices are limited. When I asked the kitchen if they could grill the tilapia instead of sautee, they said "no." They didn't understand that olive oil and butter are equally fatty. My fish came swimming in oil. Surly waiter. Will never go back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 3/1/2013
    This restaurant overflows with friendliness and generosity, from the warm welcoming greeting, to the helpful waiters, and the complimentary bruschetta. On our first visit, were treated like valued old friends. All the food was carefully prepared and tasty, including red pepper soup, salmon bistro salad, stuffed porkchops, and the bread with hummus, but I must confess I liked the apple cheesecake the best of all. It is also the best deal we have seen in any restaurant in Westchester. We expect and hope to become regulars.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 2/4/2013
    We discovered this restaurant through a newspaper review and a flyer that we received advertising a week-night special. For $21.95, you can get salad/soup, entree and dessert. There were three of us and we all got the special and we all enjoyed the meal. Two of us had the lobster ravioli which was wonderful and I had the salmon which was very good.The desserts were outstanding. The beggar's purse was terrific and the cheesecake was amazing. The wait staff was very attentive and the manager used our name when we left and thanked us.We would definitely go back.

    Second time at this wonderful restaurant. The wait staff and the food are what brought us back, this time with the entire family. The price-fixed menu changed from the first time and there is a wide selection of food to choose from. We plan on returning to this gem.

    We live in the Bronx; however, we go to Halstead Bistro quite often and we have introduced a number of our friends to this excellent restaurant. My husband has celiac disease, and they have an amazing gluten free menu...& specials Sun. - Thurs. Not only is the food excellent, but the relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant, where you can actually hear each other talk, make it a pleasant dinner place to go to with another couple. It is truly one of our favorite restaurants. When we went there on Thursday night, a table had been all set up for us outside...the owner told us that we had requested this on OpenTable. I absolutely had not, and I felt badly that they had gone through the trouble of dragging a table out for us.
