Lots of energy but a nice mix of people so that you do not feel that you just walked into a "bar scene". The food was amazing and the chef needs to know it.

Food...very original, artisanal5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my fourth time atThis was my fourth time at the strand bistro and I have always had great food, and this time was no exception.
This visit was during the spring on a nice hot day , so the weather was good and the temperature was high, so when they called to confirm the reservation I asked if shorts was allowed, it was, and we got the same service as every other in the restaurant.
I will keep coming back to Bistro each time I am visiting New York.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBusiness BreakfastGreat choice for a business breakfast near Penn Station. Contemporary if minimalist atmosphere and menu that ranges from standards to unique selections like red velvet pancakes. While they do not offer freshly squeezed juice, there is plenty to like about this menu.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMReally enjoyed our dinner.Really enjoyed our dinner. Staff was very attentive without being intrusive must try the cheesecake spring-roll!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulousI had a delicious salmon entree, the service is excellent and this is one of my favorite restaurants in NYC fabulous5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMin the Strand Hotelvery nice restaurant that's in the strand hotel. we went on sunday eve, mother's day, probably not a big day for the restuarant and were the only one's seated in the back room, so it was empty and felt that way. nevertheless, the restaurant is very nice and the food and service were very good.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMStrand Bistro has a greatStrand Bistro has a great atmosphere and great service. The food is amazing and great portion just enough to have dessert.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Mother's Day brunchGood prix fixe menu for Mother's Day - $39 for 3 courses (i had the Chet's corn/tomato chilled soup + crab cake Benedict + flan) plus $20 for unlimited brunch cocktails (bellinis, mimosas or bloody Mary's). Nice atmosphere, each dish better that the last. Overall great! And our waiter made sure there was always a cocktail in front of me! Oh, and they weren't watered down... At all... Woo hoo!! ;-)5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Food in NYCI was there for mothers day Brunch, apparently I did not read the special was from 12 to 2 but Chef Kelving was nice enough to start brunch early for us. This was my first mothers day so it was special. The food was outstanding, I consider myself a vegetarian simply because I rarely like meat my father orthered steak & potatoes and made me have the steak, i was the best piece of meat I have ever had. The Corn Soup was delish!! and the flan was do die for! I NEED to go back soon. :)5/12/2013 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 AMFood was really deliciousFood was really delicious and atmosphere was really nice.

He made sure to come by our table frequently to check in on us. Since our reservations were during happy hour, the restaurant was full of noise since we were seated very close to the bar but it didn't ruin our experience there.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI celebrated my 40th birthdayI celebrated my 40th birthday with my family and friends.

The hostess was friendly enough; I was seated immediately even though my dining companion was not there.
what wasn't great was that I literally sat at my table for 15 minutes before I literally waved a bus boy down, only to have an unfriendly waitress come over, and tell my she'd send my server to take my order. (P.S. the Restaurant was pretty empty at that time).
I only had a pasta special; the papardelle and lamb ragu and it was absolutely spectacular! The portion size was perfect and it was cooked just right! Highlight! Chef Kelvin came out and greeted us, super cool even took a pic with us.

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.
