The food was excellent and so was the service. It is very loud, very poor acoustic. We had made reservations for a table and when we arrived we were told that if we wanted a table we would have to wait for over an hour so we ended up at the bar. After around 15-20 minutes several tables were vacated and other people got seated who we did not see waiting when we arrived????

Our food was wonderful. Might seem unusual, but service was a little too quick. We came to sit down for a relaxed early dinner before a movie and we received food faster than some days at Chick fil a. That being said, every flavor was excellent and food was cooked to perfection.

Bistro V is a favorite of ours. They are a little shorthanded right now (as is almost everyone these days) so the service was a bit slower than usual, but our server was doing the best should could with as many tables as she was covering. It was a lovely evening was some delicious food...and the bread pudding was phenomenal!

It's the perfect place for a small celebration like our anniversary. The restaurant is a perfect size, and it's run very smoothly. The food is very good and the service is just right. I can't remember having such a wonderful dessert and highly recommend the tiramisu!

Once again our 3 seafood specials were perfectly cooked, succotash and sauce were excellent. Fried oyster salad was perfect. Bistro V is our favorite restaurant. Food is consistently good.

My mom and I love to have dinner at Bistro V. Due to Covid it had been awhile. It was wonderful. We both had the snapper pan sautéed with field peas, okra, and lettuce’s. It was delicious! Mom had her favorite Top Shelf Margarita and I had a glass of wine. The wait staff is excellent. Bistro V rarely disappoints.

Food was good, as always. We were having such a good time talking, and did not realize we were the only people left in the restaurant. Little did we know the restaurant had been closed for an hour, and they were waiting on us to leave but were too polite to tell us we needed to leave. We apologized for being oblivious to what was going on. Guess that tells you that we were having a great visit.

For an appetizer, we got the fried green tomatoes in addition to a few bowls of seafood bisque (which was amazing). I had the scallops for dinner, in addition to others at the table getting the seafood risotto, braised ribs, pan seared snapper, and the lobster ravioli, all of which was prepared perfectly and delicious. The berry cobbler for dessert was excellent as well. We were very pleased with the entire experience, and our server was fantastic.
