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????
Consistently delicious food with excellent service
Loud tables in front room. Think bar area preferred. Great food, large portions, good service, recommend!!
Always a good meal whenever we eat here. One of our favorites in Birmingham.
Always enjoy sitting at the bar with Katherine. Wish more places allowed a customer to reserve bar seats! See you soon!
Outstanding service! Fresh seafood and greens! Great wine selection!
The food is consistently good. Great place to meet with friends or business associates.
We had a friendly, helpful wait person. Food was great!
nice casual place with good food. Parking is plentiful.
Fabulous restaurant! Delicious food, excellent service and lovely ambiance. Amber was our waitress and she was excellent!
Excellent all the way around.
Very good food and service. Our server’s recommendations were perfect.
Our reservation was not there, but fortunately they were able to seat us. Delicious meal
Service very good; shrimp delicious; vegetables mediocre.
Bistro is one of my favorites! The food is always spot on. Staff is well trained. Restaurant is very clean. I love supporting really good local establishments and this is one that should be around for decades to come!
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.
Food and service is outstanding!
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!
Cuisine is always beyond expectations! The cocktails are always perfect!
Katherine is wonderful!!
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.
Awesome place to eat and great service 💪🏾 My kids enjoyed more than me. Shrimp and grits were soooooooooooooooooooooooooo good.
Mothers Day lunch with my wife. Our Shrimp Po boy and Crab cake plate were both very good. Large portions and great value.
Came for Mother’s Day! First time back since COVID. Amazing service and food AS ALWAYS! Thank you again for amazing service and food!
great place to dine! Wonderful Mother's Day choice!
We had a wonderful server on Mother’s Day. The food was excellent :) I had scallops and grits. Yum :) The restaurant itself is rather artsy and very clean looking. It’s an all around win. Thanks
Always an amazing meal and a great time! they always have great service and the food is perfectly price excellent quality and great portions!
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.
Delicious as usual! Service great!!! Sat outside and was very pleasant!
Excellent dinner, excellent service, drinks on point! We sat outside , beautiful evening . Waiter was Carlos! Very attentive, courteous ,menu knowledge. Perfect evening.
Jeremy is the best! Hard working, friendly! Built by Bama!
Bistro V is consistently good food and service.
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.
Food and service was great. Easy menu to pick from and plenty with portions. Was nice environment and everyone left happy. Thanks to the workers, was a good experience.
Bistro V...a great place for delicious food, lots of variety on the menu, fun atmosphere and great prices...generous portions..."doggie" bags a must:)
One of my favorite restaurants happens to be 1 mile from my house. Consistently delicious and fresh!
