We had a great dinner with friends we haven't seen in a while. The food was delicious! Our server was very knowledgeable and we weren't rushed through dinner. Loved the cotton candy that came with the check!

Ate here before a show at
Ate here before a show at Northport Theater. Food and service were excellent. It is a small place, our table was in between two other tables so a little tight. Our server was very conscious of the time to ensure we got to the theater on time. I would definitely go back, but I would ask for a booth or a table standing alone. Overall a very nice evening.

We'll be back! They have booths which pushed this into the 'romantic' category.

Waiters didn't pay attention
Waiters didn't pay attention to our table and we were a big party. Drinks took a long time and weren't refreshed. Food was excellent, busboy and other. Staff were very nice.

We had a lovely brunch. The menu offered a nice variety and the food was yummy. Our waiter was a bit inattentive, and we waited for quite some time for no reason. There were only 3-4 tables, so crowding was not an issue. I would give it another try and am curious to see how the dinner menu looks.

Bistro 44- A nice evening
Bistro 44 is a very pleasant way to eat before heading on over the the theater in Northport. The service was outstanding and my skirt steak was prepared perfectly. My wife had the Salmon, which she described as delicious. It's bar was crowded and the eating area is small but otherwise I felt this is a place we will visit again.

Great pre-theater dining!
We enjoy dining at Bistro 44! It's a great place to dine before going to the Engemann Theatrer!

Best in Northpot
Great food, lovely inside or out,
My favorite spot in town

Very Good pre-theater dining
In my view on of the best places in Northport Village for a refined dining experience. We always chose Bistro 44 when we are going to the Engemann theater later in the evening. Food is well and stylishly prepared. The only reason Bistro 44 is not a 5 star rating is that the wine list does not match the rest of the experience

Excellent food and service
Only our second dinner here since the Newsday review but wonderful once again. Best fried calamari app. we've had. Ribeye and lobster risotto special both stand outs. Service is prompt and courteous. Seating is comfortable and semi-private. We will return again.

Outdoor dining in Northport
This was the second time this summer I enjoyed lunch in one of the nicest outdoor dining spaces in Northport. I ordered the lobster BLT which came with a side salad. The sandwich was very good however I forgot to ask what type of bread it was served on and was a bit disappointed it was white bread which I never eat. The baby green salad was nice. However, the price point for this dish was a bit high and there is no question that the prix fixe menu is the best value if you are hungry enough for 3 courses or want something other than the lobster BLT. The service was attentive but relaxed and added to the overall positive experience. I plan to return again as I have through the past summers.

We met friends for a Sunday
We met friends for a Sunday brunch. The food was good and nicely presented, but the service a bit spotty (dishes did not come out together and we had to remind the waiter a few times about some small requests). Still, we enjoyed the time sitting outside, in front of an art gallery. Our friends have a dog who they couldn't leave home. The restaurant was able to sit us in the back where "Honey" could be accommodated. When it started to drizzle, they were able to bring a perfectly sized umbrella to protect us. All in all, a very good experience, even with the uneven food service.

We dined here Saturday evening August 10 and found the food was delicious. You can tell they have a trained Chef.Our waiter was courteous and professional. Our meal started with a bread basket accompanied by very enjoyable spreads. The spinach tart appetizer as well as the salad were very good.
Our meals which included the pork chops and braised short ribs were delicious. What impressed both of us was the care and concern in providing our meals with a non-rushed introduction of each course. They allowed ample time between each course to enable enjoyment of each one. We enjoy restaurants that provide creative dishes.We will definitely visit here again.

This was our third time to the Bistro garden. Loved the outdoor setting. It was a perfect night. We all enjoyed our dinners. I would recommend Bistro 44 to friends and will surely return. Seems like a very popular place to make a reservation for a Sat. evening but Sun. evening was fine.

The food was fabulous! My
The food was fabulous! My wife and I both had salads to start with (Arugala & Spinach) the portions were generous, the dish was well thought out & most importantly they were delicious! I had the Kobi Burger it was cooked perfectly (medium), juicy & plenty of bacon, blue cheese & fried onions. It came with parmesan fries which were hot, cooked perfectly and had just the right amount of seasoning.
My wife had the thick cut Pork Chop which she loved. The perfectly cooked chop was brilliantly plated on a bed of sweet potato & topped with micro-greens & balsamic glaze. Even the side dish of string beans were done right....not overcooked and seasoned perfectly!
It was our first time to Bistro 44 and it won't be our last!

Great little restaurant
We were two couples, we all had the pre theatre prix fix for $32.00 each. It was excellent, I had the chicken, two people had the wild salmon and the other person had the strip steak. The salmon came a little too rare and they for my friends liking. They immediately took it to the kitchen and cook it through. The service was attentive, but not intrusive. The weather was perfect, we ate in the garden which was very private and lovely. We would definitely go back again.

A Bistro Buddy
My recent visit to Bistro 44 was fantastic. Despite showing up very late on a Sunday evening, I received terrific service and amazing food. This was my first visit to this establishment and I would definitely go back. Northport village is a special place for me and this place plays its part very well.

Great neighborhood gem
Our third time here and wonderful once again. Calamari appetizer superb, chili rubbed rib-eye a stand-out and the mushroom ravioli delicious. Service outstanding and very quiet ambiance. We'll be back again and again.

Great outdoor patio
I went there on a Friday night with a reservation and had no problem being seated on time. The menu was great and the service was also great! The staff was also very friendly and attentive. The outdoor patio was really nice too

after the show
We went to this restaurant after seeing a play at the Engeman Theater. Right down the road and had good reviews so we thought we would give it a try. The service here was excellent, as was the food. We were the last reservation of the evening, but they did not rush us at all or make us feel like we were keeping them late. My only regret would be that the interior of the restaurant is a little tight. Even after moving from a booth to a table, our party of 6 were still bumping elbows and the chairs were up against a railing on one side. That being said, it did not ruin our evening in any way. There's a lovely outdoor space which we would have taken advantage of if it were earlier in the evening. We would definitely dine here again

Food is beyond great. Service is very good. We came after theater for their prix fixe which is an excellent value. Choices to please anyone and portions are generous.
