Beautiful restaurant and great food. The only reason for 4 stars (ambiance) was that tables for two are so close together, the discussion at the next table (normal speaking) felt disruptive. Having said that, I would go again. I am still noshing on those wonderful cashews.

We always have the best dining experience at Bistro 7. The food is consistently excellent and Sara is our favorite server because she makes excellent suggestions and treats us like she truly cares about us.

We went for Mother's Day brunch for the 2nd year in a row. The service was great. However brunch is NOT their specialty. I would not recommend brunch and will remember not to go here next year. Other meals however are great.

I always enjoy Bistro 7, whether it's happy hour in the bar with friends or a lovely intimate dinner in their cozy booths. My favorite starters are the crispy fried green beans with a creamy zesty dip and the fresh tuna tartar. It's not easy deciding on an entree; they are all delicious!
As simple as it sounds, my most recent choice was their juicy hamburger with unique smothered toppings and honestly...the best fries in town. This was accompanied by a rich jammy red wine (which I won't disclose because I plan on returning to finish the rest of that particular selection before they sell out). The soft lighting, classy ambiance, and super friendly staff add to a fun and memorable evening!

First this was a visit for four people, not two and reservations were made for that number. As always' we had a great meal, under no pressure, the food was great all of us enjoyed the presentation and taste. The waitress was great, and even though they appear to close at 2.00pm we were not rushed out. Our friends had not been there in a few years and were impressed and will most definitely go back.

We went on Valentine's Day. They had a fixed five course dinner menu. The options were nice and the food was good but what was a $190 dinner for two should have been about $140. We will return for the regular menu.

I always forget about this restaurant for dinner. Myself and two girlfriends went out for a nice meal while our husbands had their "poker night". The food was excellent - so tasty. Service was excellent. Ambience was comfortable. We ran into friends and ended up staying at the bar for a great bottle of wine (compliments of my friends). Was a fun night. Will definitely be back.

Food was very good (5 course prix fixe). Only complaint was that the service on New Year's Eve (5:30 reservation) was very rushed, with next course arriving while we were eating the prior course, and check delivered during desert. We were in and out in under one hour!

Went to celebrate a birthday and the dining was vacant and lonely. Empty tables everywhere and it was 630pm. The room looked cavernous. Terribly sad atmosphere, so we ended up eating at the bar. The bartender was warm and friendly. He interacted professionally and was attentive. He made up for the lack elsewhere.

I must say that the hostess didn't smile once, her mood was flat, and it felt like an unfriendly hello.

Really amazing food and reasonable prices. I'm always surprised that we can get a table, even on short notice or if we just drop by. I guess their overall square footage helps reduce the wait.

Steak Frites is amazing. Can't beat the truffle fries.

This was once one of our very favorite spots. However, the past few months service has been slow as the kitchen doesn't seem prepared to handle dinner service as well as bar plates. Lots of friendly wait staff who get the food to the table, but either kitchen is too small or menu needs paring. We'll drop back in a few months down the road.
