    Father’s Day dinner with the kids. Very good overall; my dish could’ve done with a little more seasoning. There were only 4 of us and they added tip without any notice , they we tipped another 20% so and $85 bill wound up being $133. That was very off putting, the kind of thing that hold have me my return. Managements shady policy doesn’t take away from the good food and the great service, but it certainly leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

    Ordinarily I would give a 5 star overall rating BUT we waited and waited for what seemed like hours for our enrees to be delivered and then two dishes came out inedible! One was ice cold and one was so overcooked the chicken could not be cut! The two other dishes for our party of 4 came without any problem. The waitress was very apologetic and the owner came over also. But no offer was made for a dessert or to comp one of the meals (and only one meal was reordered, the other person just gave up)! We've dined there before and the food is generally excellent, this time is was not. And the noise level made converation amoung the four of us very difficult. I may go back but I can't, in good conscience, recommend Bistro 1051 to others.

    As usual, had a wonderful meal sitting on the outside patio. The lobster risotto was amazing. I had the Veal Ava, and I cut it with the fork. Absolutely delicious and staff is extremely professional and friendly! Bring your favorite drink and enjoy.. food is fantastic!

    Ordered the fried calamari and there was a long white hair on one of the pieces. I also ordered the Broccoli rabe and sausage flatbread. The broccoli rabe was in bi massive chunks all over the flatbread sausage was tiny and flavorless. Probably won’t go back.

    We were visiting the restaurant for a 55th Birthday celebration. We made reservation well in advance. Upon arriving at the restaurant, we were told there were 2 parties going on in the restaurant and the only available seating was OUTSIDE in a tent set up in the parking lot. It was 50 degrees and windy. We had no alternative but to eat outside. It was cold, windy and not comfortable. If the restaurant knew they had parties going on why did they take reservations???? The service was ok, we had a long wait because the server was constantly inside the restaurant. Who could blame her, it was cold. They offered us a heat lamp, which was burning our skin. Overall it was a disaster meal and did not make for a memorable birthday celebration. We will not be returning to this establishment.

    Amazing food! Lately, many restaurants have been disappointing; I understand price increases but quality has been way down. The braised short rib raviolis, pecan goat cheese salad, chicken Irene, & vodka rigatoni were all amazing!

    Christmas Eve. Clearly the kitchen staff was understaffed as well as the kitchen. 3 hours for appetizers and entrees is way too long for a table for 3 at 7 pm. It was difficult to enjoy the food and/or even eat an entree an hour and a half after the appetizer. Additionally there’s no mention of a “special gratuity” on the menu or in the restaurant that was automatically added to the bill.

    Went on 11/29/21. —- quality of food is not what it once was !!! Fish was not cooked right and the mash potatoes were ice cold !!!! Either Mike doesn’t care anymore or maybe he changed chefs —it’s not good when mash potatoes come out cold !!! Doesn’t the chef check???? —- Mike come on !!! No excuse!!!! You will be losing a lot people if You don’t keep up the quality!!! Joe —from Clark —a steady customer—but rethinking !!!

    I was good overall. When we arrived took some time for them to direct to our table even though the restaurant was almost empty. Service was also good but a little delayed. My friend ordered a very delicious dish that was very tasty. Mine was a little average but not bad.

    Had two sushi appetizers, the tuna on crispy rice was just off, the other roll we had was good (some sort of shrimp tempura). Salad was mushy and the veggies just were not great. Teriyaki skwer was good. Eggplant parm was ok.

    The ambiance was excellent. I would prefer if they sold alcohol. My lobster risotto was good, but couldn't really taste the lobster. The stuffed flounder was too salty and lemony. They charged us for an iced tea that wasn't purchased, until we pointed it out. The prices were high, which is to be expected at a nice restaurant like that. The ladies' room was not nice. I would not recommend the place, mainly because the stuffed flounder was so bad. It could have used some bread crumbs also, in my opinion.

    Went there for lunch with a former colleague. We had a choice of three rooms… outdoor tent which was crowded and noisy, the indoor atrium which was somewhat hot and the enclosed indoor area which was perfect. It was comfortable and we were the the only ones dining in the room. Food and service were fantastic. Will certainly be back when I’m back in that area. Thank You for a great lunch with an old friend!
