Bistro on the Boulevard
Wonderful. Best place around
Very good food and a nice variety to choose from on the menu and daily specials. Attentive professional service.... and we were all very positively impressed that the owner stopped by to check on us and chat. We recommend this restaurant highly.
Enjoyed the jazz and the atmosphere. Maybe the music was a little too loud.
Food was good. A little pricy.
Very nice venue, extremely cordial wait staff and personal attention from the manager. A trifecta! We will be back...7
Bistro on the Boulevard = awful! After waiting for 2 hours on our food that never came. We left. A manager never came out to speak with us and the hostess was rude and disrespectful. Poor customer service. The only positive was a phenomenal waiter.
Another memorable evening. Great food and drinks as well as amazing jazz.
It’s always absolutely delicious!
Always good service and good food.
Wonderful experience. Great food, service abd entertainment. Will definitely be returning.
Staff very friendly . Our meals were very good , the fried oysters are excellent . Brussels a little salty ...
The server Zaaid was awesome! He made the dining experience over the top!
Excellent fried oysters ambience depends on where you sit in the restaurant. Usually full with limited seating. The seating assistant and owner were able to change our seating and we had a as expected experience. We eat here whenever we are in Irmo, at least once a year.
Most positively. The owner is always attentive to all of his guests and makes you feel like you're right at home as if he were your personal friend. Always goes above and beyond in making sure you are satisfied with your meal and time spend there. Also, we had a waiter's who's name was Zane and I cannot began to tell you how fantastic of a waiter he was and even made the owner aware of how attentive and courteous he was to all of us. Advised the owner you don't find waiter/waitresses like him much anymore and you better hold onto him. This place is great!!! Cannot get enough of it!!
Delicious food, appropriate and non-abrasive live music, the owner came and chatted with us, the hostess had a bubbly personality next to none. Folks were genuinely happy to be there and therefore so we're we. It was a great night out. Thanks y'all
2nd visit. Always pleased. Love music and a good crowd; Clemson vs Carolina weekend. Good is the best you can get for the value. I'll return. Staff and management make you feel welcome everytime.
Adam was awesome!
Fabulous experience. Great food and service. Highly recommend
Excellent food and service.i only been there twice, but both times was a wonderful experience.i will definitely be back.
Once again an excellent meal, great service, and wonderful tasty food.
Delicious! Trivia night, but we sat upstairs and had a quiet wonderful evening.
Our whole party really enjoyed! We requested a table near the bar to watch football, it was graciously accommodated. Ribeyes were wonderful! Drinks were good, dessert was amazing! Service was attentive and friendly. We enjoyed the atmosphere and look forward to dining here again!
Great atmosphere, service and food. It was an added bonus that they have live music on Friday evenings. I will definitely go back.
This is my “cheers” restaurant. Always friendly. Great food and entertainment. Highly recommend it.
Wonderful! The owner was so nice and came out of his way to talk to my and my boyfriend and give us samples of wine and make sure we were having a good time!
Great food, great live music. Very friendly service.
It’s rare to walk into a restaurant where literally EVERYONE is nice - but EVERYONE was so nice and so sincere. The service was exceptional and the food was delicious!
Great food, great service
The Bistro has good food, but a confusing atmosphere. It has an upscale look with an above average wine list, but every wall has TVs showing sports and it has live music. Is it a restaurant, a sports bar, or a music venue? Pick one and do it well. The music gets way too loud to have a dinner conversation.
Excellent restaurant with great music! We had a fabulous time.
Food was good, waiter was great, band was awesome. Can someone tell me why the hostess was dressed as a pirate last night when no one else was??
This was our first time here and the food, atmosphere, ambiance and the service did not disappoint.
First time at the Bistro. We really liked the food, and that the noise level was not too much....the meal did take a long time to arrive, and we noticed the same for two other customers. They did have too large tables so I assume that the kitchen was a bit stretched thin.
Food was excellent
What a great experience. When traveling it is a rare thing to eat at the same restaurant two nights in a row but we did.
Great birthday dinner with live Jazz! We sat behind the window to keep the volume slightly quieter. Service and food excellent. Pricey, but expected and tasty. Will go again.
Apps were delicious, specials were top notch and desserts (key lime pie) fantastic just missing whipped cream topping
So, this was our second time, celebrating my Husband's birthday and brought (2) friends, new to The Bistro and hard to please but not here, they raved on the food, glad we chose to bring them here!
Of course we will be back..never know what yummy temptation you will find on the BLVD.
Food was very good. Great wine. Service was OK. Steve the owner was very gracious. Just too damn loud. Live music tonight, but we shouldn't have to scream across the table. We'll keep looking.
Bistro is becoming one of my favorite spots to dine in Columbia. The food is delicious and the service was outstanding. We had the shrimp scampi, bayou chicken pasta, and pork ribeye. It was amazing!
Great Jazz tonight!
The food was excellent, AGAIN!
