Diner Reviews
  • "I have been to Pocket Bistro on several occasions and I have never been disappointed. Their clam chowder, spare ribs and bread pudding are the best. The restaurant is quaint and the food is a step up from a mid-range restaurant. A typical lunch for two is about $20. It's also a great dinner option for small groups. No complaints here!"

  • "We were going to be in the area and decided to try this place. The food and service were good. If I lived closer would eat here but I wouldn't go to far out of my way to eat here. It was good but nothing really special."

  • "The service was slow but overall, the food was great so I may come back! We all ordered 4 different entrees and portions were huge and tasted great."

  • "We have always liked the food and am happy that we have a restaurant like this in our neighborhood. We went there with friends from Chicago after raving about this place. The food was tasty but the main course portion size has dwindled since our last visit. The price has not. My plate with a rib eye stake had a tablespoon size scoop of potatoes. Really? We were to go back with neighbors in the next two weeks. We are going elsewhere for the price."

  • "The hostess blew it! She had not reviewed her reservations for the evening and had no idea we were coming in. I had a reservation for 8 at 0630p and at 0630 is when she began "looking" for a table for us. We were seated an hour later and by this time the "special" was sold out! 4 of us were only there for the Prime Rib special and had to settle for something else! Also, no apologies from a manager and to top it off they sent us the newest and not the swiftest waiter. Our 0630p reservation turned into an 8pm meal. 2 of the couples we were with vowed never to come back to Pocket Bistro. There needs to be some accountability from the hostess to the wait staff. Poor review is definitely in order!!"

  • "Never heard of it. Wanted to dine near our accountant in pocket area. Just happened to find it on Opentable. Well we were very happy that we went. My chicken Picatta was delicious, my husband's Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin dry & a little tough though he loved the cherry sauce which helped. The bread pudding was tasty, but not exceptional we would definitely go again."

  • "Went out to lunch with my girlfriend at Pocket Bistro, reservations and all. Waited 10 minutes at the door before being shown a seat. Seemed like there was only 1 waitress working. Amazing food, but very slow service."

  • "Everytime we visit this little gem, we are never disappointed. Attention to detail n their food preparation is flawless. I always order the chicken picatta and the preparation and presentation are always on point. Our server Veronica was personable and when asked if we could have extra sauce for the picatta, she made sure a bowl of sauce was delivered. As a former banquet chef, I am always impressed that the food arrives at the table on very warm plates which keeps the food hot throughout the meal. Kudos to the chef and staff!"

  • "Went to Pocket Bistro for a birthday dinner, unfortunately it was on a Monday night. Found out there is only fried chicken and hamburgers on the menu. We decided to stay to try it. We weren't too impressed. I don't think we will go back on Mondays."

  • "My dinner group of seven chose this restaurant for our December outing. Some people drove over an hour. Everyone single person was blown away by the quality of the food. We had chicken, meatloaf, ribeye, and the ahi salad. Service for our group was outstanding."

  • "We had brunch on Sunday, the kitchen was very slow in getting our food prepared, but with the bottomless bloody marys made the wait was OK. I recommend only if you are not in a hurry."

  • "This gem is such a welcome addition to the Pocket neighborhood. I've eaten dinner several times and thoroughly enjoyed my meal every time. I recently had lunch and was equally pleased with the food."
