I hesitate to write something since there is really nothing to recommend except for the earnestness of the owner and wait staff.
We enjoyed two amazing appetizers, the warm olives and the corn and avocado salad! As if that wasn’t enough my husbands stuffed trout with scallops and bacon was over the top! My mushroom ravioli was a good as O expected and I have plenty for another yummy meal! The wine and the service were perfect compliments to a wonderful evening!
The food was good, live music was very nice and still allowed for conversation. We were a large group and all our food came out at the same time. The bloody mary was not the best, but overall a good experience.
Excellent service, great brunch 👍
Awesome food and service ! Always a solid choice.
Exquisite food with beautiful presentation. The short ribs are like soul food. The golden beet salad was a wonderful surprise of flavors!
Our meals were very geasy, steak burger and scallops. Left feeling very disappointed and had an upset stomach from the oiliness.
One of my favorite local eateries. The food is great, the atmosphere casual and friendly. Music is good.
My friends B'Day and she wanted to go there. We loved the turkey burger and the salad that came with it plus a regular burger...we split the two for tasting purposes. Best Turkey burger I have ever tasted. The service was wonderful and the special deserts are fabulous. One would never imagine a place on a main street of El Cajon could turn out to be so great...I am craving that burger now and will return. Our waiter was amazing. Do nice and no rush!! Loved it!!!
Surprising hidden gem in east college neighborhood. Very friendly staff, lovely enclosed patio w/ heaters, seems to be popular with locals. We had burgers before a show at the Moxie, but they have dinner entrees too. Would recommend, nice experience overall.
Food was tasty and we loved our waiter, David. Would recommend the calamari and shrimp appetizer. Hard to tell about ambiance, there were only two other people there when we were.
This restaurant is almost there, but not quite. We sat at a tall table in the indoor patio area, where music was being set up & started half way through our dinner. The appetizer of the mac & cheese was VERY good, the fried green beans...meh. Three ordered various burgers and and I ordered the special veal parm. They all said the burgers were just OK, a bit salty and woudl likely not order again. The fries we not memorable and the onions rings while tasty, had half that were "real" onion rings and half that were a formed onion ring. The veal parm was not memorable and the cheesy polenta was gelatinous form on which the the veal parm sat. Had great expectations and hopes, but maybe it was an off day? at the end of the meal on the drive away, asked if we would go again? General reponse from the group was; "there are lots of other places to try".
We enjoyed an evening out with friends and saw some great music at bistro 60. The food was good. Our favorite part was the desert – their peanut butter bombe is the bomb.
Birthday brunch. Good food. Good Service. Nasty coffee.
Came to eat before going to a concert at Viejas. Didn't know anything about it and was greatly surprised. The staff is wonderful and the wine list is huge. Best onion rings and my turkey burger was awesome. we even had live music.
The front inside of the restraunt was nice but the cupcake road to the restrooms could stand to be cleaner and more organized. The waiter we had would occasionally stop by and pick up one empty cup or dish at a time instead of clearing the tiny table we sat at.
All in all it has potential but needs some polishing up for sure.
Vocalist (Ria) highly recommended the food so we decided to check it out while she was there. We were not disappoint. Wonderful meal, pesonal service, very enjoyable evening. I'd go back if i lived here.
The old was very good. We were there on a Friday night when they have live music which was entertaining but not intrusive. Our server started out attentive, almost too attentive, but he faded as the meal continued to the point it was necessary to flag him down to get coffee and then the check.
First the address that Open Table took us to when looking for the restaurant within open Table's connection through Maps, was incorrect. Took us several turn arounds on busy el Cajon blvd before we actually located the restaurant using a call to the restaurant. The sign outside is small too which added to the difficulty in finding it.
Parking was tough too.
The wine we wanted from the wine list was not available. Several menu items were out of season.
I ended up having the Bistro burger which as a burger was very good. The bun was huge though and I had to put half of it aside. The side salad option was not a great choice for me. As a personal preference I do not like the salad chopped up in little pieces. It is difficult to pick up with a fork. My husband had the spinach salad which was not chopped in little pieces and he had the truffle fries. The ketchup we asked for was never brought.
So we left rather unsatisfied.
Had a table of 6 for a birthday party. Decor looks nice. Meal was expensive for the food quality.
Ordered the Calamari & Shrimps for appetizer, they were good, spicy, even though the breading was falling off the calamari.
Paid approx. $25 for the seared scallops in coconut milk with rice. Could not taste the coconut, sear on the scallops was not slightly crunchy because of amount of sauce on top of them, rice was mushy.
In-laws ordered the small plate crab cakes, which were good. Kids ordered pasta (baked Mc & Cheese, and Penne with mushrooms and sausages), kids liked it...
Wife ordered the Shepard's pie. Very hot plate (still bubbling), good flavor.
Finally, the live singer was great, we enjoyed the music.
Regarding the service, even though the waiter was coming frequently, he was not picking up empty dishes every time he left, so we ended up getting our entrees with the appetizer dishes still on the table. They did not have a printed menu of the desserts, so you have to stand up and go to the glass dessert tray to choose what you want.
Overall, little pricey for what the result was. Good ambiance.
One of our favorite places to eat in San Diego. Friendly staff, accommodating to special diets (gluten free) and most of all great food.
Friendly people and very helpful with parking. Food was fantastic. I was taking a college kid out for a quick bite. It was nice to connect with a home feel and really good food.
Tasty and creative meals. There was a duo playing jazz that added to the ambiance. Fantastic desserts. Glad there is an upscale foodie restaurant in College area.
We love this place for both lunch and dinner. Most recently we came here for a small wedding brunch. As usual, the service and food was outstanding!
We love that Bistro sixty is so close. We've lived here for over 13 years and just happened upon it. Bring your friends, bring your family and be prepared to try everything without fear or disappointment. You'll be delighted with their wine choices, their ever changing menu and the wonderful service.
Live music starts around 7 every day. There is an outdoor patio that is shielded from inclement weather. Bring a big group or enjoy the quiet ambiance with a date. I can't say enough good things about this place.
The food is wonderful. The staff is friendly.
We think of this as a neighborhood eatery for delicious comfort food. The team is hospitable and they work hard to show they care. One minor annoyance is that they have a decent wine list, but I've yet to order anything they weren't out of or they tell me "we are in the process of updating our wine list". The live music is a plus...we've enjoyed several dinners here with live music and all were excellent! Make sure you have at least a bite of dessert. This is a former bakery and their desserts are special. You walk over to a lit case to see what they have that day...it's worth the walk!
Very good food and service
We love the Bistro! We both had simple pasta dishes with protein added last night! So yummy! The fried green tomatoes are a real treat. All of it with a yummy red wine! Perfect simple dinner!
Great service and great food! Went for our 16th Wedding Anniversary before heading to the Viejas Arena. We were extremely pleased with the service and the delicious food.
Bistro Sixty is a neighborhood gem - the staff is great and food is delightful.
Spur of the moment on halloween, tried a local spot. Hanger steak and salmon entrees outstanding. Live music was great and a very fun time. Will return.
Everything was awesome! From the food to the service. Everything was up to par. I'm definitely coming back.
Mark is JUST THE BEST!! The food was fantastic, as always. Just a treat!!
The service was the highlight of the evening. David was awesome. His wine pairings were on point, his food recommendations were just as good. I cannot recommend this place high enough.
Great food with a diverse menu to please all! Really nice wine list, fantastic desserts and relaxed atmosphere. Always a great choice!
So nice with live music
Music was wonderful. We loved the chicken pot pie hope it comes back. Turkey burger was home made great flavor . Food was great. Nice spot to sit and enjoy with friends
Food and service amazing - small dining room is not an appropriate space for a tenor sax! It was really hard to talk with the live music! Will sit in the other dining room next time. Otherwise, Love love love this place! (I say this as a musician myself, but there's a time and a place for loud instruments)
