The evening was very nice. The prices were high but expected. The slab of pig fat on the antipasto platter was not to my liking, so paying $20.00 for food I could not consume was bad.
Never disappointed. The standards are high for all dishes. The atmosphere is casual elegance, and the staff are professional and personable. Plus, you very well might be able to meet Biba sitting at the bar.
Our waiter was fantastic. Really made our birthday lunch!
The food is delicious, service is professional but not stuffy, entire staff is friendly and helpful. And as a plus, it is always lovely when Biba strolls through the room!
I have always loved going to Biba! Always perfection. Calm relaxing atmosphere. Amazing food and top notch service.
We booked a table for 11:45 on Valentine's Day, arrived at 11:40 and were seated immediately. The service was excellent after a somewhat leisurely beginning. This is nice restaurant with elegant furnishings, not a place for a quick lunch. The four of us had liver, salmon and two pasta dishes. Everyone was pleased. My salmon was a fixed price meal: salmon or seabass plus salad or soup for $18. The soup was tomato clam; I'd never had that before and it was very good.
We had a fabulous Valentines Day lunch. I had the best beet salad ever for a starter. It had both golden & red beets, arugula, pistachios, pomegranate seeds, and burrata with a wonderful vinaigrette. My Spaghetti Carbonara was outstanding, as was my husband’s seafood linguine with saffron sauce. He said there was a piece of seafood (bay scallop, shrimp, clam, mussel) in every single bite. All this paired with a Rombauer Chardonnay - who could ask for more? We did! A scrumptious lemon tart with blood orange sauce to share for dessert. Thank you, Biba, for all the years of fantastic meals in such an inviting and beautiful setting.
As always a wonderful experience- the food and space make it truly special!
Our family had an enjoyable evening eating great food, with attentive service and an enjoyable ambiance.
We have always enjoyed Biba as our first choice for downtown dining. The hardest part is making a choice of what to order. It is definitely the type of place one goes to for special occasions.
