    I ordered the crab cake with the salad for lunch. I think I found a sliver of crab in a bite. Very disappointed. The salad dressing was very good but the rest of the meal was mediocre at best.

    Delicious food and wine. However, the noise level made it extremely had to communicate with others at our table. Going to attribute that to a Friday night crowd.

    Service was not up to what I have received in the past. It could be because of Mothers Day.

    We booked for 2:00pm and did not have to wait long. The problem started when we asked for the menu and they bring us a brunch menu, they said it was the only thing they were serving. that was not stated when we made reservations. We said OK, but then the server mentioned a lot of items that were no longer available which made our choices even slimmer. We all ordered gumbo as an appetizer and a main entree. The gumbo came out right away and we had not even started when the main entree came out! e were a party of 4, so to say the table was crowded is an understatement! We felt we were being rushed, we had to eat everything very fast so that our food did not get cold. The gumbo was very good and my entree the crabcakes too but my husband's fried chicken was probably prepared ahead of time. We were in and out in about one hour. More like a Fast Food lunch than one in a sit down restaurant. We have been to Bistro V numerous times and the service and food had always been excellent. It was Mother's Day, but that is no excuse for such poor performance. Our server was very attentive and it was probably out of her hands but management should take a look at this.
