Usually my experience is very good at Bistro DiMarino..not this time, veal was dry & over cooked, service was poor because it was so busy...they need more food servers! Server never checked on us to see if we were happy with our meal!! Sorry, but that’s FOOD SERVICE 101!!!
The food was absolutely amazing. Our waiter Chris was outstanding! Will definitely be back.
I've been to Bistro before and everything went but this time it was a disaster! For starters, We hated the placement of our table. Next, my husbands salad tasted like a bag salad from the supermarket and the rest of our meal was just ok. Lastly, they were running very behind on reservations (an hour at least) so people were coming in and out complaining which was very disruptive to the romantic birthday dinner my wife and I were trying to have. Very disappointed!!
Great place for a small Group
Unfortunately, our dinners were so salty we couldn't eat three of the six entrees we ordered. The service was great however I don't think I will be returning any time soon.
The server was terrific from attentiveness to personality. The gnocchi are the best ever, so light and prepared in very tasty recipes, if you don't want to over do it on the pasta they have an appetizer sampler of 3 choices or just one. My friend & I had a veal dish and it was perfectly prepared, even the left overs were delish. My husband and the rest of our friends had different meals from lasagna to clams in a white wine garlic sauce and everyone was pleased.
Excellent service and good! Repeat customer here!!!
The staff was very kind and on point!
The service & food were fantastic as always. The vitello giana was delicious and the gnochi is the best around.
My wife and I eat at Bistro at least 5-6 times a year and every meal is amazing. I tried the sausage lasagna this time and I have never had better. My only complaint is that it is hard sometimes to get a reservation.
Food was delicious
Had a window seat with snow falling outside. Perfect for a night out with my wife.
I had been here before but it has been awhile. It is a cozy spot with excellent food. Good BYOB. Its dim, a good spot for a date night.
The best restaurant in Collingswood, bar none. We live here in town and we have tried all of them, and most are very good, but the Marinos do it right. Everything we order here, from antipasto through dinner and into dessert is absolutely delicious. Jim is an unbelievable chef, and Michael and the staff make us feel like they invited us into their home. Our relatives in Philly say the food is better than anything they have over there, and the friends we bring here rave about the experience. Can't wait until spring so we can sit out on the beautiful patio.
Always wonderful food and great service. Our food server, Chris was attentive, friendly and fun!
Delicious experience! The gnocchi is outstanding! Definitely order the sampler. This is a gem that can easily be missed due to its location.
We will definitely be back! Had no room for dessert, but it also sounded amazing. Another advantage - BYOB!
Food was cold, sauce was suppose to be lemon wine came out brown Demi glaze
typically the food is great here. Not sure what the problem was this night. I chalk it up to lots of large parties. I ordered veal parm- it was awful. Calamari and Caesar salads were spot on. Steak ordered medium was beyond well. I am not good at complaining, i will be back, but it was not the typical goodness I experience here. I'm only "complaining" so they realize the food was not consistent and can work on a better experience when they are at capacity.
Wonderful restaurant in charming Collingswood! Great service, great food & great atmosphere!
Great service and food was amazing .
Very hospitable! We had a large group and someone brought a 24pk of beer, which was embarrassing but they quickly grabbed it and said "we'll take care of it for you" brought them back out in an ice bucket. And that's how the rest of the night went. All the employees work together getting food out and take dirty stuff away.
The food was homemade and very fresh. They were very generous with their portion sizes and the price per meal was very reasonable. The service was very good and the waiter was very friendly and attentive. We celebrated with friends and family for the holidays and Bistro Di Marino didn't disappointment. The only hiccup was that two guests initially sat down in wobbly chairs; however, the servers quickly changed them out.
Food and service always excellent. Finally got there on a Thurs., and "Frank Sinatra" calls out sick.
Nice food, friendly atmosphere and good service... what else can you ask for?
The gnocchi were great as a mixto. Lots of food for the value.
The food at Bistro is absolutely outstanding. I had the lasagne Josephine and it was amazing. The drawbacks: it seems as though around the holidays they try to get as many tables in the restaurant as possible. The place is already a little tight so sitting at a table that you have to ask three people to get up so you can get by and they having the back of your chair touch the persons behind you is not ideal. We had a reservation for two at 6:30 and were not sat until 5 minutes of 7. I understand there are times when your a little behind, but 25 mins, that's a little long. Overall the service and food are excellent and I will definitely continue to be a patron.
Food was amazing as usual
Excellent food and service
Disappointed no gnocchi available due to many holiday office parties that consumed all
Great night. Date night for my hubby and me. We were seated in the front room, which was nice because we were away from the bigger parties and it was more intimate. Our food was delicious, especially the gnocchi! We finished with the cheesecake with black cherry on top...yum!
Best Gnocchi we have ever had!
Always enjoyable to go to Bistro for lunch or dinner. Great BYOB.
Our server, Chris, suggested 3 samples of gnocchi as an appetizer. They were delicious and a great way for our party of 10 to share. All of our meals were excellent and full of flavor. The portions were huge and many of us had to go boxes. We will definitely return soon.
Our server Chris was wonderful and the food was fantastic. However, as others have mentioned, the hostess leaves a bit to be desired. A bit rude.
Food was excellent as usual!
Excellent pasta, nice portions. Great restaurant. I've been here several times.
Love this restaurant! We are always happy with the dining experience!!
I was very underwhelmed with my dining experience at Bistro Di Marino. The server seemed like she couldn't be bothered with our table. Presentation was lacking. Food was so-so. And price was higher than other (better) Italian restaurants in the area.
We had a great birthday dinner there last Friday with a group of 8 of us. Our appetizers were delicious and so were our meals. We all took alot of left overs home because we filled up on the apps. It is a BYOB so we saved some money by bringing a bottle of wine. Our server was great also and was very attentive. We've eaten here about 6-8 times so far and we recommend you giving it a try. During the spring and summer, I recommend eating outside in their outdoor patio area for the atmosphere.
It was our first visit. We had high hopes. The food was so-so. Calamari Fritti app was tender but not crispy at all, and just warm, like it had been sitting a few minutes too long under the heat lamp. Antipasto app was just OK. The roasted peppers had an off taste. My wife's entree had roasted peppers, which made her think twice about eating anything. My Veal Saltimbocca was swimming is sauce, and had an extra meaty taste. Veal was not very tender either. The Amaretto Tiramisu was not tiramisu at all, but just some kind of layered sponge cake, which was all together overly sweet. The Cannoli were average. With so many restaurant choices, especially in that area, we'll try elsewhere next time.
First time eating here and it was truly amazing, all four of us had different dishes and each one was amazing from presentation to taste! Loved the place and we will definitely be back often! Great restaurant!!!! Loved it!
Been here several times and always have a great meal. Everyone enjoyed themselves and we'll be back again.
