We love this bistro. Nice neighborhood place. Great for date or family meals. They can also handle larger gatherings. Full service bar. Excellent food. Tasty salads. My favs are the pasta and seafood.

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.

We visited Bistro V on a Saturday night and were pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious, with a full menu, and the service was outstanding. We will go back, and highly recommend it.

It was the wife's birthday. She had shrimp and grits; I had sausage, crawfish and chicken fettuccine in an etouffee sauce; the son had braised short ribs and potatoes au gratin. We had crab claws for an appetizer and ice-cream topped chocolate cake for dessert. The food was fabulous; the service excellent; the bill reasonable; ;the atmosphere pleasant. I highly recommend.

I have traveled all throughout the South, and have a son who is an Executive ACI chef. Cold, unseasoned grits, even asked to have a dish replaced, still stiff barely warm. Very sad to see a signature dish poorly executed.
Crab cakes were mushy. No crab lump, way too wet, under seasoned. Y'all need to visit the Grand Hotel in Point Clear. Service was good. Room is a bit noisy with the industrial ceiling. It can be mitigated with fiber art, like the Refinery did. Y'all, you can improve. This is a very conscious town. Even Frank's places have to keep up their standard

Made a lunch reservation. I was immediately seated and then assisted by a very attentive server. I had the scallops and grits (Tuesday special), which were very good. My friend had the fried green tomato BLT, and she had no complaints. I'll be back!
