As delicious as always. My husband and I frequent Bistro V often and are always satisfied with the service and of course the food. Always good, always fresh, always leave too full. Highly recommend!

Our server was very engaged and attentive and knew the menu well. I love it when a server gives recommendations and they are on point! Shrimp and Grits was one of very best I've ever had-so much flavor but not the typical so rich you can't finish it! We will be back!

We were promptly served beverages and delicious Gambino bread with a lemon butter sauce. All three of us had the fish special which was snapper on a bed and vegetables with a special broth. The meal was really, really good. The chef really knows how to cook fish perfectly.

The food, service and ambiance at Bistro V never disappoints.
Sometimes the noise level is a little high but understandable as we all express a good time in different ways!

As we have come to expect, the food was excellent, particularly the fresh seafood entrees. It is a great place for friends to meet in a more casual dining environment without sacrificing quality.

I always enjoy the food at Bistro V but the noise level is a problem. I am elderly and use hearing aids but have to turn them off. Wish they could do something about this problem as others in our group also complain.

Great place for work lunch get together. The food was excellent, great value and quick service. The Daily Special was red beans and was a hit with those ordering. We tried soup and sandwich, salads, and shrimp and oysters. All excellent.

We meant to try Bistro V for about a year and, despite living just a few miles away, just had not gotten around to it. Their many great reviews appear to be well earned. In a city with a lot of excellent restaurants, this one is definitely in the top 5.
