I cannot brag on this restaurant enough! Our servers, Britta and Tye, were amazing! They are both a huge asset, bringing their “A” game to the table! They were lots of fun with their wit and just as charming with their knowledge, accommodating manners and professionalism!
The food is a 10 across the board and we thoroughly enjoy it each and every Valentines Day!

Valentines Day and initial table was next to kitchen entrance. The hostess kindly moved us and also accommodated my having flowers delivered by setting them on the table! We love 234 and eat there often. It is the best place in the valley!

Food wasn't as good as usual. Rib eye was thin, without much taste. Lettuce in house salad was old ,brown on edges, tomato as spoiling.

Excellent service and excellent food, we can’t wait to go back! I highly recommend the bruschetta, market salad, chicken Marsala, and peanut butter pie!

As always, excellent service, food, drinks and ambiance! We had a party of 14. We were seated in the wine cellar. The server handled our chatty table so well! We never had to wait long for anything and never felt rushed. Love Bistro 234!

My husband and I love the Bistro. We typically go here on date nights. Our server was not that great this time though. Food and wine was delicious as usual.

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and our daughter and son-in-law recommended your restaurant. It was a good choice.

We made reservations to celebrate a birthday and got a table next to the cold air and a really unhappy and unfriendly inattentive waitress. Very unwelcoming. No hello. No thank you. It was obvious she had better things to do than wait on customers Saturday evening. Pity we ended up with such a sour waitress. Why would we even bother to return?

First visit for lunch; we will be back. I had the special - mushroom ravioli with a garlic cram sauce. It was delicious. Nice wine list and good food selection.

Despite our reservation for 6 several days in advance, we were seated next to the restroom. An endless stream of toilet seekers was a bummer. The velvet curtain shielding the view was useless. The food was merely decent.

As always, friendly staff that makes a point to visit. Always able to adjust some selections to vegan. Excellent dessert choices for vegetarians though not vegan. Attentive to patron needs throughout the meal. Pleasant setting. Have only been here for lunch so cannot comment on evenings. Have been coming here for at least the past six years.

The food was good, service was ok, it would of been nice to have been offered bread and butter before our meal instead of after the meal.

I love this place but it’s just wasn’t good tonight. Our server was stretched too thin and couldn’t really connect w us or provide prompt service. Crab cakes were too salty, salad overdressed and halibut too dry. That said, half price wine for Wednesdays made an average dining experience better.
