The ambiance was lovely and not too loud, though since it was only about half full I cannot say if it is true all the time. In the summer they have some outdoor seating which is nice, unfortunately it is still much too cold for that. All in all, not a cheap meal but seeing as I have not run into anything on the menu that hasn't been fantastic the value is still quite good.
Excellent food quality and prompt service. The owner/chef visited our table which was a nice compliment to an exceptional evening.
We were very pleased with our meal from start to finish. The atmosphere was quaint and charming and featured local artwork available for purchase. We started with the Artichokes Grill which was the perfect light start. Between the Pork Osso Bucco, the Lobster Mac and Cheese, the Roasted Half Duck and the Tuscan stuffed Chicken we had a nice array of entrees. We were all so pleased we shared tastes and decided we must come back and sample others! It was all quite delightful!
Interesting ambience. Enjoyable lunch and good service.
Lovely dining experience, wonderful evening, will definitely return.
Outstanding food in a comfortable home like setting. It’s on the expensive side, but worth every penny. Small menu, but anything you order will be exquisite with varying flavors. Very different taste combinations that will not disappoint! Highly recommended!
Delicious food with a menu to meet broad interest.
Great food, great service, wonderful atmosphere!
Always a favorite when I come to CNY. This is one of the best restaurants in the Utica-Rome area
Food and service we're outstanding!
My sister and I get together periodically over the year to catch up. We have eaten in
many different restaurants with mixed enjoyment but "Across Row Bistro" is a true
winner. The food was wonderful and the service was exceptional. We will be back. I will certainly be referring friends to this fantastic restaurant.
Delicious food, good service and warm atmosphere. Enjoy dining in this restaurant
Fantastic Ambiance.Special atmosphere and incredible food. Can't wait to go back.
Absolutely love Across the Row Bistro! Food is fabulous and the staff is wonderful.
Would highly recommend to everyone.
I finally got to this place when a couple of college friends came to town, and I was so glad I took them there! It surpassed all my expectations. The food was amazing, the atmosphere was eclectic and cozy, the staff was great! I would highly recommend it.
3rd time for dinner. Great place for an anniversary dinner. The menu is selective, but with that comes a dinner prepared to the T. Everything tasted astonishing. The chef is an amazing cook!
Food was terrible at best. Tuna was inedible. Tried to give us a table in the worst spot near servers station when there were plenty of other options. Don't go...
Stunning atmosphere, delicious food. A bit high priced. I expected something other than plain green beans and salt potatoes for a side to a $35 plate.... But overall nice experience. Always prefer to support local!
We had an absolutely amazing evening. Brian Mattison is a great host and a fantastic chef. One of the best restaurants in the Utica area!
Food was very good, servers were good, but stretched thin--no dedicated bartender, no dedicated hostess from what we could see--just 3+/- waitresses doing everything?
The food was great. The service was slow. We got the wine we ordered with dinner before we got the drinks we ordered before dinner. I do not mind taking our time when we are out to eat, but not having any drinks for a good half hour after we ordered some was a bit much for me.
Great Meal. Wonderful place to go for date nite dinner😀
We went here for our wedding anniversary and the staff did not disappoint. From the Prosecco split upon arrival to the romantic dessert to the chef coming out to congratulate us, they really went out of their way to make this a memorable experience. And the food itself was exceptional. Overall a truly wonderful event.
Way too expensive for the service/food. I enjoyed the food, but not a $33 entree, especially with below average service.
There was 3 of us who enjoyed 3 different menu options...ALL of them were FANTASTIC! The coconut curry scallops, Pork Osso Bucco and Pistachio encrusted Salmon were our choices and we were highly pleased. We enjoyed sitting outside on the porch. It was cozy. The service was top notch. I highly recommend this restaurant and will certainly be back.
Some old friends and I got together on a weeknight and decided to try the Bistro. We were NOT disappointed. The service was very good, the waitresses were helpful, patient and professional. The food was very good, especially the duck and haddock. We sat for hours eating and laughing on the beautiful porch overlooking our beautiful village green and we had a lovely time. Thanks to all of the staff for making our evening one to remember.
We were disappointed with the overall experience. The menu was quite limited and all items were exptremely expensive. There were no vegetarian or moderately priced items whatsoever. The location and outdoor seating on the porch are very nice. We wish the menu could be improvd so that this restaurant would be more attractive to people llike us who enjoy good but more inexpensive casual dining. The mussel appetizer was large and delicious and the waitress generously gave us more bread to soak up the juice. The entrees were OK, but not great, or memorable, and for the price they were a little hard to swallow. Also, we would not have ordered the selections we did if the menu was more varied. With improvements this could be a great option in the Clinton area.
Always great food and attentive service. I love the artichoke appetizer and duck entree
A good meal with friends. Menu options are limited so make sure to look at the online menu before you go just to be sure everyone can find something they will enjoy.
the price range regardless of quality keeps this restaurant from being a place I would frequent or recommend unless special occasion
The setting is quite nice - a beautiful home turned into a restaurant. The service and food were both excellent, which made for an excellent dinner.
It was a lot of money for OK - prior experiences were far superior
will think twice before returning
While the food was fairly tasty, but oversalted, the chicken was tough and rubbery. The vegetables, were good. My husband had steak, good but not outstanding. Portions were adequate. Calamari appetizer very bland. Wine was very good. Cheesecake was good. Service was adequate.
Our food was exceptional! I wanted to try this restaurant for a long time. I'm so glad we did. I loved it. We will be back
This place was outstanding the chef has a great take on his food, artichokes were the best I have ever had, calamari was tender crunchy and the sweet chili sauce was a perfect complement . Dinner we had Sesame seared tuna and the filet mignon both perfectly cooked and delicious.
Good beer and wine choices, we were so full we didn't have room for desert.
Try it you'll like it
With all respect, you're playing the music far too loud for such a quaint & cozy environment. And the genre of music doesn't fit the ambience that you're visually presenting / aiming for. If you played perhaps classical acoustic guitar music, (and at less volume), you'd offer a much better environment than does some random, loud, bass-heavy mix of elevator music that we were drowned in the two evenings that I've been there.
This restaurant is just simply terrific! It is just really nice! And quiet! And I will suggest it to everyone
Great food and service. Dinner setting was very relaxed and comfortable.
We have been here a few times and the food was good but service was slow for us as we do not linger over dinner so if you want a slow meal you might enjoy this. On this visit it took a very long time, we were the only table with diners when we got there and it took over 40 minutes to get our meal. I do not remember what my husband and son ordered but I had scallops that came out cold in the middle and not cooked. I sent them back and they still were not cooked when they were served. We will not go back again.
We felt very welcome and the waitress was outstanding. The chef was there and we had an excellent lunch.
