Bistro 61 proved to be perfect
Bistro 61 proved to be perfect for a low key dinner after a tiring day. The staff was pleasant, the food was simple but delicious; a lumpcrab and avocado cocktail was a refreshing appetizer and the bone in rib-eye was prepared medium rare to our liking. All in all a pleasant evening.

Had a great meal as always.
Had a great meal as always. Room was quite energetic as a large party was seated near us but I guess that means it's good for groups.

Go for the mussels
My sister and I had lunch recently, we split the mussells in mustard sauce, excellent. The bread was also great. Wine list reasonable.

Great, except cash only for brunch
Great place. No complaints except for the cash only specificity for the brunch prix fix. That is strange and annoying. Either be all cash only or not.

A wonderful neighborhood bistro
I had my first dinner at Bistro 61 last night and I was very pleasantly surprised. The food was outstanding, I probably over ordered as so many menu items looked too good to pass up. It was a slow night, so the place was very quiet. The ambiance is about average for a bistro and I docked them a star on service because no one came to refill my water glass. The waitress was very good and explained all the dishes on the menu. I am looking forward to returning and trying out some other items on their menu.

Some of the most authentic French food I've eaten since I lived in France a number of years ago. Brought 4 California friends -- they were all delighted with the food, friendly service and very NY-neighborhood feel. Absolutely will return.

Great location on the course, and very accomodating staff! Food was perfect and served in a timely manner. And the mimosas were kept coming. On such a busy day, we never felt we were ignored or even rushed~!

Great neighborhood spot
Great "locals" spot. Mussels were delicious, as was the chicken and veal. Quaint atmosphere, great service and great wine. Staff and local patrons were super friendly. Would definitely eat here again. Happy hour before 7:00.

Just a great place
Can't wait to make this one of our neighborhood go to. This "French Style" restaurant has a great atmosphere, nice music, and the food is like home (and I am French).
Strongly recommend anyone who wants to have a romantic night.
