Great except for scallop entree
Love the feel, ambiance & menu of Light. However, this past visit featured a couple of miscues, the most significant of which was the scallop entree ordered and served. It was inedible, as there was so much grit/sand in them. The manager, after sampling a portion of the returned dish, acknowledged the problem and apologized to our table; another entree was prepared and served LONG after my fellow diners had finished theirs. Notably, given this unfortunate experience, the replacement entree was not comp'd; however, dessert was offered to the table. The other apps, soup & entrees were all wonderful. We'll return.

The light bistro has a very elegant feel to it and the service makes you feel right at home. We had gotten a couple of appetizers, two main courses and desert, and every single one of those dishes were delicious. The staff was friendly and very helpful with any questions we had.

Personable and well-paced service. A great mix of flavors in reasonable portions. Bacon wrapped dates were fantastic. Overall enjoyable experience and I will definitely return.

Excellent food and service,
Excellent food and service, much as we remember it from two years ago when we visited. (We're from the Akron area and explore different restaurants in the Cleveland area, so we don't get to The Light Bistro that often. Too many good restaurants to choose from).
One comment we will make: it would be helpful to pass out the dessert menu with the prices. We weren't expecting the donuts to be $10, and we felt that the coffee was somewhat over-priced.

Excellent food, we'll be back again
First time at Light Bistro and overwhelmingly impressed with the quality of the food. The special beef tip and bean chili was terrific - good level of heat but not overpowering, a nice sweet afterbite (cinnamon maybe?). The mussels were outstanding - layers of Thai flavors with curry and coconut, far superior to the typical tomato and onion saute. The ham croquettes were good, with a very flavorful breading that was super-thin, yielding much more ham and cheese center than you would expect. Service was pleasant, entertaining, efficient. It's a shame the patio isn't larger; we would have loved to sit outdoors. Otherwise, a terrific meal, and a place we will most be most certain to return

This gem gets my highest recommendation. The staff were welcoming and friendly and were always available to meet your needs. The menu was very diverse with many choices for meat lovers and vegetarians. The food was excellent in its taste and presentation.
And, my group lingered and chatted without anyone trying to free the table. What a wonderful dining experience!

Friendly and Fabulous
Had lunch with an old colleague - first time visit for both of us. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent. Max, our waiter, was attentive, personable and helpful. I would ask to be seated in his section if he's available next time!

Great service and food
Our first time at the Light Bistro will not be our last. The waiter was excellent, attentive but not intrusive. My 7-yr-old loved her pizza and my husband and I enjoyed our meals very much. I had the scallop special and the scallops were very fresh and perfectly prepared with great accompanyments. Great location with valet parking completes the package.

Very quiet at 4:30. Was getting noisy as we left at 6:30. But what a wonderful dinner, server, and over all ambiance! Will be back!

A hidden gem
Great hanger steak - absolutely wonderful accompaniments. The patio is a nice quiet spot despite being right on a roadway. I definitely enjoy this place and will be back for more excellent designed, cooked and tasting food.

Love the decor, the service, and the food. It's a bit pricey and a little too quiet for me. I am not sure why this place isn't as busy as some of the other places in Ohio City, I guess since it is off the beaten path.
I think it's definitely worth it especially for their happy hour menu. Good small plates and cocktails :)

Our server was excellent. He was able to hold a great conversation and his service was great!

We went to light bistro to celebrate my birthday & were not disappointed! There were several appetizers & entrees that sounded amazing so our party of four ended up getting an app & entree per person & we shared. When we go back again I plan on getting the crispy clams & hanger steak! Everything was so flavorful & unique, we will definitely be back!

Great Service and Food
Surprised that more people don't consider this as place to go before games, theatre, concerts etc. The staff is great -- if you tell them that you need to be wrapped up by a certain time, they will make sure it happens. Has great character and ambiance, food is great, and broad array of choices for wine & drinks. Plus, close to other Ohio City establishments if in the mood to do some bar hopping. My wife and I are fairly picky, and we really like this place.

Worth the Stop
We picked Light Bistro as a spot that was out of downtown and easy to find, for several of us to meet up after a show at Playhouse Square; and because it had an interesting menu. We like tapas and sharing the small plates to get a variety of tastes while we socialize. We found the food to be fresh and tasty, the wine and drink selections great, and it was not too busy and loud. We had a very good time. By the way, the bacon wrapped dates are absolutely delicious!

Without question, the food on the new menu was outstanding. New York level and on par or better than the trendy Tremont group of restaurants.....hats off to the chef.

I Love This Place
This is one of my favorite restaurant in Ohio City, in an area replete with excellent restaurants. For lunch, the fried green tomato BLT is the best sandwich I have ever had anywhere. I 'be been there a couple of times for dinner, and on this last visit, I ordered a bone-in ribeye medium rare. In an era where medium rare often means medium well, I was astonished and delighted to find my steak PERFECTLY done.
I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. It often gets lost in the shadows if it's more talked about neighbors, but for those in the know, this place ranks with them all.

We have not been to Light
We have not been to Light Bistro in several years, and we are sorry it has taken so long. What a delightful evening. Lance was attentive to our every need, including my wife's dietary restrictions. Manager Carl sat with us to be sure her menu selections were both to her liking and her allergy needs. Very accommodating and professional. All that is good, but it is the food that will have us coming back. The pecan crusted trout was delightfully prepared with just the right accompaniments, and the grilled flat iron steak was delicious, tender and flavorful. The pumpkin creme brûlée was scrumptious, and not overpowering.

We had a wonderful time with a group of 6. Great service- amazing tapas and pizzas! A definite repeat!

Light Bistro is lovely
I took a dear friend to Light Bistro to celebrate her milestone birthday. The food was wonderful, our server was knowledgeable about both the wine list as well as the food offerings available. We were able to spend time talking never feeling rushed. Our entrees (scallops and pizza) hit the spot and met expectations. Definitely a dining destination for me in Ohio City. It is where you can go to have a lovely, affordable meal without some of the challenges found at other establishments in the neighborhood.
