For a group of foodies, there
For a group of foodies, there was no "wow" factor for us. The food was good, the experience was good, the people watching from the window was uterly hilarious. Was there a wow we ate there and the food we couldn't stop talking about factor, no. But for a neighborhood joint to go and hang out with friends, it was great.

Jazz in the Back
On Friday and/or Saturday nights the Bistro has live jazz. I like their food and enjoy the jazz. Makes it a special place.

Hasn't failed us
It's was our third time at the Bistro, and every bit as good as we remembered. The mussels starter was incredible, the beet salad delicious and perfectly balanced. I had the Oslo bucolic, melt in your mouth tender and flavorful. My husband had the linguini and thought the flavor was excellent. The creme brûlée was creamy tasty, although a bit cool. The white chocolate gelato was the only disappointment-- just tasted like vanilla. Overall a wonderful dinner for our anniversary celebration. We will definitely be back!
P.s. the bar side was loud, but we were on the other side, and quiet conversation was totally doable. There's a jazz combo that plays in the back room on weekend nights-- great music, not great for conversing.

All wonderful except for . . .
...the "short pour" on my glass of wine. It may have well been the full five ounces but was noticeably "shorter" than the glass served to my table mate. When we asked for a top off, the glass came back still appearing short. I am thinking that either of us got the end of the bottle which means you either end up a little short or with a little extra, so sometimes you win and sometimes you don't :0). P.S. get a table in front of the window looking at the plaza in the main dining room (not in the bar) which is noisier.

Dont be fooled by the photos showing table cloths and fancy napkins. The food is casual and great for families with kids, including hamburgers, salads, sandwiches, omelets...the usual California cuisine and comfort foods. There is a full bar with TV in the next room. Our family had a great experience. Everyone from age 8 to 80 loved their food. The Eggs Benedict with crab got rave reviews. The skinny french fries were perfect.
