Bistro 1051 Ratings and Reviews
This restaurant was awesome. The owner, Michael was insanely accommodating with Open Table told us they had availability but in actuality they did not. He was incredibly apologetic and crazy nice. My only beef was that we sat near an incredibly loud table (so loud I couldn't hear the people I was sitting with). Everyone loved their food though, so that was a plus. Everything was delicious and everything was great. I would recommend you avoid sitting by the windows the draft is rough!
Friends and I chose Bistro 1051 as our holiday get-together spot this year. Since I had been there dozens of times before, including our daughter's wedding celebration luncheon, several birthdays, as well as business dinners, I was confident that the meal would be good. My only complaint, however, has to do with customer relations. I didn't complain when the owner, who we have seen countless times before, didn't even say hello once when passing about 10 times ... no complaints even when the noise level was beyond being able to hear our table's conversation (not within their control, I know!) The complaint was that we were charged $6.00 to have three cupcakes brought to our table. Not only did we purchase a round of coffees to have with our dessert, but we also purchased apps and meals, with a tab well over $100.00. The surcharge ended up being more than the cost of the cupcakes! Bringing our own sweets was to accommodate our friend's favorite. Even though the amount was trivial, it left a bad taste in my mouth.
Menu is extensive and has many different types of food. I enjoyed the flatbread. The noise level is a little high and sitting by the windows can be drafty on a cold night. The service is a bit better than ok, but not great. My biggest issue was that the open table review said that california wines were available, but when i got there they said "go to the liquor store". I suggest you get that edited.
This is our 5th visit to Bistro 1051 and we were once again thrilled with our meal and experience—this trip included a large party of 8 to celebrate a birthday. We requested a table in the corner via OpenTable notes section and were accommodated by the staff. Our table was far from other diners which aloud us some privacy and kept us from disturbing other diners as we are a somewhat loud group.
Ian and Amy, our wait staff, were attentive, friendly, patient with our older guests that had questions and very knowledgeable of the menu and preparations. Ian was able to make suggestions for alternate side dishes and alternate preparations to accommodate our group. Imsuggest the short ribs—sauce was excellent and meat fork tender. We also enjoyed the grilled fish specials, calimari and risotto.
Overall it was an excellent dining experience. Great food, good atmosphere (though a bit cold for guests seated near windows) and impeccable service.
it was a very busy Saturday evening, we had a reservation but had to wait about 20 minutes to be seated. But the food was excellent, everyone was happy. and the service was very good too. It might not be the best choice for a quite date, but for groups who want good seafood, it is the place
This was not our first visit to this restaurant. That says a lot about the place. We reserved a table for 5 and were promptly seated. The place was packed with a few large partys so the noise level was high, but that eased once they left. The food was delicious and the service was top notch. That says it all! You cant go wrong with enjoying a meal at this establishment.
FYI, Its a BYOB.
Make sure you eat before because your food won’t come out until over an hour. Then you will be told you should have ordered an appetizer because everyone knows the food takes a long time because Saturday nights are busy. Plus if you make a reservation, you will then get it thrown in your face by the manager that you were sat immediately ... as if that doesn’t happen when you have a reservation. Not worth the decent food. Noisy, sub par and horrible service with a waitress that likes to touch the men at your table every time she is there. Learn some professionalism and stop touching married men’s shoulders and arms. Way to make people uncomfortable. You definitely lost a recommendation. Never again !!!
Very nice! I'm a regular and I am always pleasantly surprised by the chef's creations. The filet of bronzino, any style, is a tasty, high quality fish. The shrimp and chorizo tapas has a unique, kickass sauce! Jessica is a wonderful waitress. My mother was impressed by the quality of the service and the food!
This is a very nice and cozy restaurant tucked in the back of a strip mall. It's BYOB and there is also a very nice liquor store in the same strip mall. Service was great and food was absolutely delicious. Penne vodka was top notch and dynamite shrimp flat bread was also very good. Definitely coming back in the future.
This was my first visit, but it won't be my last. The meal was the star here. From appetizer to dessert, the food was delicious. It's not often that I have so many delicious choices on the menu, I can't make up my mind. At one point the service lagged, otherwise this restaurant would have received a 5-star rating across the board.
The bronzino fish with lemon sauce and lobster and asparagus risotto was out of this world. The sauce in the tapas chorizo and shrimp was unique and very tasty. The mussels in white sauce were a bit bland. Extra garlic or Pernod sauce would have given it a kick! I come here regularly. I respect the owner and the establishment enough to bring my mother and my fiancée here for fine, Old World dining. None of the dishes here will disappoint you!!!
We met friends here using the "meetways" app. And what a treasure we discovered! Great service in a comfortable, relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Food was outstanding - I choose from the "Healthy" section of the menu, and the whole wheat fettuccine was delicious. Other dishes at our table: the special shrimp scampi and the Parmesan encrusted salmon. All agreed, best dinner in a new place that we will definitely make the trip for again! The dessert was, simply put, to die for - a fried cheesecake tower with fruit OMG! The owner was gracious and friendly, as though we were "regulars."
Great meal. Menu is varied and everything was tasty. Wait staff was very pleasant and owner came over and was really nice asking if we needed anything and was genuinely concerned about our opinions and making sure we were happy. We weren't rushed even though it was late and we're told to take our time and not to rush.
