Bistro Aix is a chef owned neighborhood bistro. Purchasing the finest local ingredients from farmers and selecting grower/producer, naturally made wines is what sets us apart. Recently remodeled, Bistro Aix has been serving our community since February of 1996. Our new California Oak burning grill inspires us in our daily changing menu.

We sat in the back of the restaurant -- which, if you want to hear your companions, is certainly the best part of the restaurant -- next to the live olive tree wrapped in lights. The portions are fine, which means they aren't too big. We had halibut and flatiron steak. The steak was perfectly done at medium. Overall, a good meal and good vibe.

There was barely any actual calamari in my Fried Calamari -- more than half of it was a sad slaw/salad that was there in a blatant attempt to bulk up the volume on the plate. The calamari that did make it onto the plate was as tough as rubber bands. The cavatelli was great flavor, but was such a shockingly small portion for $20 that I gasped out loud. What I received (see picture) should have been a $8 side dish. Also, everyone around us received bread automatically, but we didn't get any until I asked for some at the end on the meal (I only asked for it because I was still starving). Lastly, the olive oil served with the bread was off horrible quality. It was harsh with an offputting chem flavor and it was oxidized. I left hungry, unsatisfied, and feeling like I got ripped off.

Our main dishes included the special of linguini with clams, the squid ink spaghetti and the lamb. All delicious! Wine, bread and service was also great. We would definitely return.

Staff are extremely courteous, helpful, attentive and seem to work well together. As a French restaurant should offer, their bread is excellent and their Chef knows how to cook pasta. Given the number of people we saw who seemed to be returning and were greeted as regulars, our great dinner experience may be the rule - rather than an exception.
