The food was amazing. The manager offered us a free glass of wine for our anniversary. The one man band was great he played a variety of great songs and made the evening even more pleasurable. I Had one thing I did not like a lady brought her 2 dogs. I am petrified of dogs and I don’t like them around when or where I’m eating. This is a great restaurant. Please visit them!

This was my first time back at a restaurant in a while. Great food as always. Live music was great and all the necessary safety precautions were followed. I had the pork belly, it was beyond excellent. Love this place!

I had the fried green tomatoes app and that was good. I also had a side Cesar can’t go wrong wrong with bc that. As well as She Crab soup. It was good but it tasted more like a chowder than a she crab with sherry. I also had the Crab Cakes. I’ve had better but it was ok. Didn’t look or taste like it was homemade. Should’ve asked how it bc was cooked. My son has the filet with mashed potatoes and Brussels. He really enjoyed his meal. The Brussels were great. My drinks were made really good and priced good too. It was happy hour. The staff so friendly from the hostess to the manager and one of the band members. They were very hospitable especially the manager.

I loved the atmosphere and friendliness of staff, was disappointed to find out they limited/ changed the menu. I researched the menu before we went and was set on one of the menu dishes, only to find out that they weren’t serving off regular menu.
Overall experience was very good

Really liked this restaurant a lot. Food was fresh and delicious. I’m a foodie so I am pretty picky when it comes to eating out. Everything was made fresh. Even the mixed vegetables which are usually an afterthought at most places were delicious, still a little al dente which I love. Went to listen to jazz band during dinner and they were great as well.

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.
