Food options were great! I had a hard time narrowing down my choice because there were too many great options. It was our first time and we will be back to try the other choices!

This is my new go-to place for Suzy and me. The staff has even recognized us. We have been served by all the staff, and they are absolutely outstanding! The food is first class. The service is superb.
It seems that with the Biden inflation, the portions may have gotten smaller. Personally, I would rather they raise prices. But still you are FULL when you leave.
I like to go there every week! Try the crab claws- to die for!

Thanks, Bistro V

My husband and I frequently visit Bistro V, and it never disappoints. We had our usual waitress, Amber, who is always a delight, with her cheery disposition and personable approach. I had the Mezza Luna pasta, delicious! My husband had chicken piccata, which looked delicious. We dined outside, it was a beautiful night, it was fantastic, as always. We will be back.

Seafood special was red snapper, our favorite. All four of us got that and all thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Service by Sally was special too. Chef dropped by and we thanked it for his outstanding meal.

Food and service consistently excellent! Friends from out of town requested we have dinner here because they had such a great dinner experience pre-covid. We all ordered different entrees and each was delicious. Server was really patient because we were talking /catching up… never felt rushed. She kept checking on us until we ready to order.

We have eaten at Bistro V several times. This time for my wife's birthday. The grilled snapper and scallops were fantastic. The salad had fresh bibb lettuce and an excellent dressing. The orange glazed cake alamode and a cup of fresh brewed decaf coffee capped off a wonderful meal. The service, even with most tables full, was outstanding! We will definitely come again.

Date night for my wife & I, haven’t dined here in several years since we live down @ Alabaster. Food & service was great & we’ll definitely be back sooner. Like the outside dining option available also.

We appreciated that the servers wore masks, and that tables were somewhat distanced for when customers who were unmasked came in. Food and service were excellent, and we really enjoyed our experience. Highly recommend.

We had an amazing meal at Bistro V’s!
Our son was gone from out of town and we wanted to try a different place in the Birmingham area.

The food, service and prices were incredible.
I definitely plan a return visit to your restaurant.

I went here several months ago, on a recommendation from Dann my brother. He was dead on! This place is super! A great variety of dishes, and pricing. Anyone can eat here. Service and atmosphere are really good, too! Try the fried claws. They are big, and cooked just right!

Seated quickly and our waiter came to offer drinks and answer questions. They have a very good wine list and drinks were promptly delivered.
We had shrimp bisque and fried crab claws for appetizers, both were very good.
Dinner was fried oysters and wild caught salmon. Both were very tasty. The only complaint was that the broccoli was not cooked so I left it but enjoyed the mashed potatoes. We did not get dessert.
