We went for lunch and ended up sampling all of there pre fix menu and were beyond impressed, this was about twenty levels above your typical hotel food. All together I will end up frequenting the bistro based on the environment, staff and food. I could not recommend more highly if you need a meeting place before dinner of a light fare and nice drinks.Wish the roof top was open earlier5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, a very chic crowd.Good food, a very chic crowd. Very friendly staff. It was truly enjoyable!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLobster risotto was only the start!We were looking for something interesting but not outrageously priced near times square, and when i saw lobster risotto on the strand bistro menu, i knew i could be happy going there. The delightful flavors of this dish more than lived up to its description, but so did everything we ordered! My fellow diners greatly enjoyed the calimari, the salmon, the braised chicken and the steak - which all sound very typical but which all brought unique flavors and presentation to the table. A little taste of warm fallen chocolate cake and cheesecake canolis made for a wonderful finish. We will be back for the wonderful food, pleasant service and easy going atmosphere near the warm springtime fireplace!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat LunchLunch was very Busy so we were happy to get seated right away. We had the Mac and Cheese and the Grill Cheese it was amazing! even had time for dessert Flan was out of this world. We will be back!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFish Tank TableLovely intimate restaurant.

My girlfriend had special dietary needs and our server made sure to eliminate the offending ingredients from everything she ordered. The food was prepared perfectly. The plating was simple but elegant but more importantly the flavor was outstanding. I had the Scallops and she had the Lamb. We will definitely come back next time we are in NYC. Pardon any typos.

Service - When we arrived, we were immediately greeted by the hostess, Marti, who acknowledged our reservation, sat us, and asked periodically, throughout the meal, if we needed anything else. Our server, Joel, was equally on target. The menu was clearly described. Questions were answered quickly and accurately. The sequencing of the food was excellent.
The food was a nice surprise. The Strand Bistro is well priced and is definitely "FIT FOR FOODIES." We had pan seared scallops, a lobster risotto (generous amount of lobster), a cauliflower truffle soup that was "to die for." The margaritas were incredibly well made..lots of fresh lime.
Try it..you'll love it!2/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
