Bistro on the Boulevard
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!
Noise level was higher because we went to listen to awesome jazz - every Thursday night!!
I would & have recommended Bistro to many people. Thank you for the consistent goodness & great atmosphere.
This place has great food and even better service. We love the live music, especially The Time Pirates! So much fun this past Friday night. We have made lots of new friends here!
Very nice place for a birthday dinner. Our server Ryan, was excellent.
The food and service was outstanding, I love this place!
Great place to dine.
We had a great meal, very good service and the musician was great
The food was great as well as the drinks. The only two complaints were that the live band was too loud so having a normal conversation was difficult and one of our sides came out cold and when it came back it wasn't much better despite being nuked.
Food was good, nothing special. Their was a small musical group that was louder then they needed to be. Reservations spot on.
Hands down this is one of the best restaurants in the area. The food was excellent and so was the service. We will definitely be coming back 🎊🎉👏😍
The food and service was excellent!
Food was wonderful. Appetizers were varied and special. Service was attentive.
Great wait service & meal. I will return & tell others about your restaurant.
Second time at Bistro on the Boulevard. Perfect evening! The server, Adam, actually remembered us from 2 months ago. Remembered it was my birthday, and even what food and drinks we ordered.
We brought two more people with us this time and all four drinks, meals and appetizers were made perfectly and cooked as needed for food allergy issues..
We stayed for Trivia Night and had a great time! Steve called the trivia and we got hooked.
Found out they have Jazz every Thursday and live entertainment Friday and Saturday.
We LOVE THIS PLACE!
We will be back and sooner next time.
It is the kind of restaurant anyone would want to be a regular!
Absolutely! But they would need to know the negatives as well as the deliciousness of the food we were served. This was our second visit. I believe the first was late March to mid April. Weather was perfect (that visit); jazz band was wonderful but too loud, at least if sitting as we were on veranda that evening.
Last week, the 5th, it was upper 90’s and we sat inside. The food was sooo wonderful again; probably brought to us at about the 15 minute mark, which we had no problem with.
It seems service was disorganized; if I remember correctly we had four people plus the person who brought water to us waiting on us.
And lastly, your restaurant serves the absolute BEST she crab soup ever - in Columbia and also alone the coast.
Just FYI, our seating on the 5th, was upstairs area.
AMAZING YUMMILICIOUS FOOD!!! Firecracker shrimp. Seared Tuna, Filet mignon and shrimp scampi...SCRUMPTIOUS AND TASTY🤩😋🤩
My favorite restaurant in Columbia!
Always good food and service at Bistro, have been a customer there for a few years. Great place for large groups.
First time eating here and will definitely go back. From the moment we walked in we received nothing but friendly service. The hostess and server were knowledgeable about the menu. The manager came around and asked about the food. He stayed and chatted with us for a while. Very personable. It’s obvious they appreciate their customers. And on top of all that the food was delicious and reasonably priced. They even had live music. Great , casual restaurant!!!
We frequent the Bistro because the people are always so friendly, food is great, and atmosphere is very comfortable.
Very friendly staff and great food! A bit dark and noisy
even though this was only our second time there, we got treated like regulars. It is a wonderful, comfortable restaurant with good food. My husband had mussels and fried oysters appetizers as his meal and enjoyed every bite. I had parmesan panko flounder, homemade mashed potatoes, delicious. Everything comes out really hot which is what we like. The wait staff is great, we had Lacey as our waitress and she was very helpful.
We are outside b/c the jazz band playing was a little loud.
We were there for trivia, always a great experience. Can't eat shellfish and that's about the only thing on the appetizer menu. Would like to see something else. Overall we always have a great experience.
We enjoyed as it was our first time there. The service was great and the food was excellent. We will be back.
