The food was really good, I had the scallops and grits, my wife had the shrimp and grits, and our friend had the crab cakes. All three lunch entrees were very good and were enjoyed with a nice moderately priced Italian Pinot Grigio. The service was especially good, the lady that serviced us was attentive, knowledgeable, and professional. Our overall experience was prefect.

We’ve been eating here for many years but last night’s meal might have been the best we’ve had. I had the short ribs and they were excellent. J ordered the lobster ravioli and it was fantastic as well. High praise to the kitchen and wait staff for an outstanding meal.

We’re from New Orleans and know seafood. The fried shrimp were excellent and deveined. Most restaurants here do not think it’s necessary but it is quite necessary. The crab cakes were great too!!

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

We were alarmed at the seating next to the bar. But it was not boisterous as it had been before; the food was delicious and the service excellent.
