This as a real find. The menu is small but the food was excellent. The Ahi Tuna preparation - catch of the day - was the best I've ever had. My wife's selection was a rigatoni short rib casserole style dish with exceptional flavors that was a carry-home (what was left) for the next day. The owner was unusually friendly and shared some insights regarding several exceptional wines he carried. Overall the evening was a delightful surprise, and we plan on an early return.
We had not been back to Bistro 241 for some time. We always had found service to be a problem. We live nearby and recently went with a group of neighbors and had a great experience. Based on that, my wife and I returned. We had a great evening. The owner, Eli, went out of his way to make sure we had a great evening. Food was excellent but way too much--we actually were able to have another meal from left overs. My with had the quinoa salad and I started with the caprese. She had a fillet for her main, which was perfectly done medium rare, and I had the short ribs Bolognese, which was tender and very tasty. They had an excellent bottle of Bel Glos Pinot Noir at a special price. All in all, a very nice evening!
Great menu... fabulous food! The food is always exceptional and the owner goes out of his way to make his customers happy. I ordered a glass of wine and didn't like it. The owner opened a bottle that he wouldn't normally sell by the glass and offered it to me for the same price as his house wine. Super accomodating!!! Food is super gourmet with great presentation!
Food was amazing! Excellent menu choices! Friendly owners!
Outstanding food and service just a few steps from the heart of downtown Delray Beach.
Waited and waited for food to fnd out our ticket was misplaced. Now owner Eli should have compensated in some way. We were a party of 5. At least ask. I used to frequent this restaurant when it was under other ownership.
A real dining experience, small, elegant, with good service.
In a party of four, most of the appetizers and entrees were very good. The mahi mahi tacos were quite pleasing. Both the mussels and the filet mignon were high quality and cooked perfectly. Service was attentive but the waiter seemed to be trying too hard at times. This was a Thursday evening, so the dining room was not crowded -- nice for conversation. The quality of the food should attract more diners.
Must have the short rib bolognese!
Service was slow. Owner was bartender and waiter for entire restaurant Food was good but nothing exceptional. Many other restaurants I would choose over this one.
Very slow service. Cold main dish. Good flavors but would not come back.
Food was well prepared and quite tasty. The problem was that the owner was a one man band. Because of that the service suffered. He clearly needs more help. Another plus was the ability to park your car.
There is consistent quality and attention to detail at this excellent restaurant.
It was our first visit and will definitely go again but they had problems as the owner said their busboy walked out for some unknown reason the night before, leaving them short handed. So service was very slow but the food was very good. Hubby and I shared the quinoa salad full of chopped cucumber, greek olives, artichoke hearts, fresh basil, shaved parm etc. For my entrée I had the appetizer PEI mussels which were the best I've ever had. They were large and the broth (with cherry tomatoes and garbanzos) was so flavorful, I ate just about every drop. Hubby had the beef short ribs bolognese with ricotta cheese, tomatoes, wine and pasta. Very rich and tasty. They also serve a loaf of warm crusty bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar which they "reduce " themselves making it very sweet. It was so good. We would have looked at the dessert menu if the service had been quicker but we'd been there almost 2 hours already
Dinner was served 1hr 45min after it was ordered. Most dishes tasted good. A few were cold. Basic issue was that there was not enough staff to handle a Saturday night crowd. The waitress failed to come back to the table after the initial order. An overal poor experience for a group that was very accommodating.
