Great place to go. Friendly. Great service - thanks Shaun. New hostess, Abbie, very nice.
Great table, great service (thank you Shawn). My wife’s complaint was that her fish was dry, other than that, a very nice experience
Waited 30 minutes for 2 salads. And then ingredients were missing and not plated. Waiter just had a fake smile on her face the entire experience.
Two small salads, two ice teas and an appetizer of 3 half dollar sized crab cakes (I kid you not) warranted, in their minds, a $71 bill!!!
Will not return. Outrageously priced and poor service, very small portions, and food nothing to write home about.
Service and food were both very good. This is one restaurant that we visit often.
Great food, great service, great atmosphere. We went for our 25th Anniversary and we could not have been more delighted!
Our last visit the weather was nice enough to eat outside. It is located in a great spot and was fun to people watch. The food was outstanding. My wife had sea bass and I had their chicken marsala (sp?). I have also had their rib eye and short ribs here in the past and both are worth ordering. Our waiter was great and the service provided was just right.
Great service! Our server really made our event extra special. He was attentive to our needs. He also made the best cocktails! My favorite drink now will be the Jalapeno Mango Margarita. Thank you for taking great care of us. We will definitely be returning.
This place is always phenomenal!
Food was great. Service outstanding. We will make this our restaurant of choice for future dining out. The drive from Merced was worth it.
The food wasn’t quite up to par that night. The rib eye my friend was grisly. She kept setting more pieces aside. I had the salmon, which was good, but the rice was strange, almost like rice pudding. I did enjoy the crab cakes. I wish this restaurant had some vegetarian options. The wine, dessert, and service were all very good.
Meal was great as expected. Stakes cooked perfectly and fish was moist. This marked the 3rd or 4th time we had been there and it is definitely great food. The only complaint was the waiter’s VERY abrupt explanation that there would be no substitutions on the menue. (If you call adding mushrooms on the side of the stake a substitution?). It wasn’t his answer that was the problem; only his delivery... For the 2 other couples that came with us that night; one will never be back mostly because of that waiters response. It’s too bad; the food was excellent. Perhaps a softer response next time?!
Food was amazing and service was great except I felt like we got ignored a bit towards the end of our meal, but overall very pleasant experience.
Always enjoy a visit to Bistro 234. The food and service are great. My girlfriends and I had a fabulous dinner and a delightful evening.
Good food and atmosphere.
Excellent as always! Great food and wonderful downtown location.
Britta was our server. Probably one of the best ever! We have dined at some of the most popular restraunts in the world and I would rate Britta among the top 1%.
I am a generous tipper for servers who go above the call and she certainly did. Congrats to you & your staff!
I was very disappointed. I've heard this place had good food and good service. Two things we did not receive. Took my wife there for our 19th wedding anniversary. Not only we were seated directly between 2 large parties, we were literally in the walk way right outside the kitchen doors with plenty of other tables available. Took 20 minutes from the time the hostess sat us, until someone came over to our table. And no, it was not busy. (it was a weekday) Our server was non existent. She sure paid a lot of attention to the table right next to us, table with 8 guys all drinking and cuttin it up. (maybe she thought she was gonna get a bigger tip from a group of guys).
Ordered the rib eye (or what i thought was rib eye) Very disappointed in the taste, the look, the size; looked and tasted just like carne asada.
All in all, i will not be going back, and not recommending this restaurant to anyone. Very disappointing for a special dinner out for our anniversary.
My favorite is the chicken Marsala and the Diane torte for dessert. Big enough to share with three or four. Yummy!
We really like the food at the Bistro, however it would be nice if they served new dishes. Even though they have specials, it seems like the specials are pretty much the same. As the old saying gos, "Variety is the spice of life!"
We hosted a dinner for clients this week. The service was excellent, and the food was even better. Great wine list, and overall good vibe for what we needed. I would return for the Ahi Tuna for sure.
We love to celebrate our anniversaries here. ❤️
We live in Denair and frequent Bistro often. It’s our go to when we have friends and family visiting as the menu, wine list and atmosphere are perfect. The wait staff are exceptional, professional and courteous. Bistro never disappoints.
Our fav spot for date night; the craft cocktail list is a new find (for us, ....)
Overall nice place and cool vibe. Steaks were cooked perfect. If you're in Turlock area it's worth a try!
The portions are large we each had onion soup and split a chicken marsala. It was plenty, neither of us could finish it all. The wine list is nice and reasonable. The food was good, service excellent. One of our favorite places when in Turlock
Enjoyed the atmosphere and company, but food was really so-so. My husband ordered a pork tenderloin with apple chutney. He said it was really tough. I ordered halibut and I thought it was coming with parmesan mashed potatoes but came with what I think was scalloped potatoes with a bunch of cheese and browned. Didn't seem to fit with the fish. Haven't been to this place in a long time, so probably won't go again any time soon.
Francesca was a fantastic waitress
Amazing service, great food!
Had a great time, food, service, and ambiance was perfect.
Always great food and friendly staff. Accommodating to making food vegan.
Such good service and food was fabulous as always!
Upscale interior design. Good outdoor seating. Very good service too.
I like the menu
Our waitress Raschelle was incredibly rude and inattentive. My husband and I specifically chose Bistro to celebrate our special day because on-line it appeared they had our favorite wine. Bistro unfortunately no longer serves our wine, which obviously was a bummer. All in all the atmosphere was okay, but our waitress could've been a bit more professional and not acted like she hated her job!
Again, a great experience at Bistro. Service was exceptional.
I have eaten here a couple times and it was good but this evening was not good. The speciality drinks were awful (tried 2 different ones) and our waitress ended up leaving half way through our dinner. Our halibut was overcooked and the beet salad was not very tasty. The best part of the dinner was the dessert. It was very good.
Great food and service! Steak was seasoned very well and cooked to order!
All I can say is get the Mahi-mahi, it was outstanding. Great food and a nice atmosphere. Our 3 time here and quickly becoming a favorite of ours!
Seared Ahi was great. My wife had the chicken marsala, very good. Nice wine list! Bruschetta appetizer really good. One of the nicest places in Turlock for dinner!
Food was very good, but could tell the regualr chef was not there.
There were 8 of us. Steaks, Salmon, Bass, Ahi Tuna were ordered and we all loved the food; great attention to service; nice wine menu. In and out within an hour, but we were not rushed. We will definitely come back. Others in our group had been there before. 234 Bistro was recommended to us by over a dozen people.
