A snowy night and an 8:45pm post-movie reservation. Overall food was prepared well. The escargot fra diablo could have been hotter (temperature; the spice was spot on), so I was concerned for future dishes. The pumpkin squash ravioli was perfectly portioned and caramelized walnuts a perfect complement. Hanger steak entree adequate, and seafood medley perfect and well presented. For a slow night due to weather, i think the staff was anxious to leave, but ambience and overall experience pleasant
awesome as always! Bistro 18 has become a staple for us!
It was our first time here and overall we enjoyed the evening and the food was very good. The atmosphere was just OK, and we ended up with an acceptable table after I rejected the first two--one right by the door on a very cold night; the second right outside the bathroom bathed in fluorescents, despite the fact the the restaurant was practically empty. The waiter was efficient but not overly friendly, which was OK, but didn't enhance the experience at all. Overall, a good meal for an everyday night.
Fish meals are usually the best. We sat at the window seating which we always find a pleasing experience. Service was attentive and easy going. We’ve been there several times. It’s our go to place when we want a reasonable seafood dinner while enjoying a nice bottle of wine. The restaurant is BYOB.
Food was fabulous, but we had to keep searching for the waiter.
Great location, delicious food, amazing service!
The cocaine train kept running to the bathroom. Also when I reserved o didn't expect to then get the worst table near the front door. So I asked for a better table and was obliged. That said table choice from the host was the one all the way in the back next to the restroom. When a guest says they don't want to sit near the door typically should give you the insight that the table in the bathroom is also not ideal.
We would've been fine sitting there, honestly. It's just that we had a group having g some fun that kept going in pairs or triples to the bathroom to do a little tootsky. They kept knocking on the door as if the coke fairy would only answer with a particular knock. That knock was something like, "Hey Tina open the f-ing door". Good for them for real but horrible for my quiet evening on my wife's birthday.
Food was solid and our waiter great.
Food was very good, but was a little expensive for what it was. Ambience was a little too quiet and lack the energy I was hoping for.
Risotto was wonderful. Salads shy of ingredient. Service right to the point.
Great menu with a variety of items. Good service and ambiance although not sure I would want to sit outside in the atrium in the middle of winter. BYOB keeps the cost down which is good. We were happy with our dinners but absolutely LOVED the tres leches cake. Would recommend.
