Always our favorite go-to spot fir a date night!
We enjoyed our meal at Bistro V very much. Our table was, we felt, awkwardly positioned with a direct view into the kitchen complete with swinging doors that don't fully close and wait staff in and out delivering food. HOWEVER, this was completely made up for by the excellent service and wonderful food and drinks.
Considering everything, extremely enjoyable experience. COVID-19 concerns well addressed, especially social distancing. Really good food and drinks.
Great food and the service was excellent but the ambiance isn’t great.
Excellent food and great service.
Great food, service, atmosphere, price for the quality and quantity of food. I will return here often.
The food was excellent! The staff was nice. They accommodated my party, even when an extra person showed up. The ambiance was great. It took a while to get our food but it was worth the wait. I enjoyed my time there celebrating my birthday with friends.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. Excellent choice!
Delicious food and a great bar! They change up the menu but your old favorites are always there too.
Wonderful oysters and shrimp. A local gem with food that never disappoints.
I dined at Bistro V on a Friday night with a friend to celebrate her belated birthday. The overall experience was wonderful & the food was delicious! Will definitely be back to try more dishes. I had a bit of a hard time deciding what to order because everything looked so good! The interior is pretty understated, but comfortable and nice. Our waitress was knowledgeable, however my only issue & the reason I didn’t give a full 5 stars is that she did make us feel rushed from the beginning. We asked for another minute to make a decision on what to order, and she told us that was ok but that there were reservations after us. I just felt like there might be a bit more tactful way to say this. Our reservation was at 5:45, so I of course didn’t think we were going to be the last diners there... it just put a little feeling on the rest of our dinner that we needed to hurry to get out of there. Other than that, I was extremely pleased with the food. I had the crab ravioli which was fantastic, and my friend had the fettuccini. I tried a bite of it, and it was delicious as well! We split the chocolate bread pudding, which came a la mode & was large enough to have been split by 4 people in my opinion...we left a lot on the table, but it was very good! Everything was at a very reasonable price point for the quality of the meal. I can’t wait to come back to try more dishes!
Unusually off this time. Will return - typically very good.
Shrimp and grits were delicious!
Server was helpful and efficient.
Very Nice clean interior
We ate indoors at Bistro V and the tables had nice separation and there weren't too many people. The server was attentive and very nice. She wore a mask throughout the time were there. Menu is not quite as extensive as it was pre-Covid. We had Po Boys and they were good although somewhat hard to eat, a lot of food on a fairly small bun. The tomatoes on the Po Boy were delicious! They also have a nice area for outside dining.
The food was wonderful.
Really good food, a lot of choices on the menu.
Wine list good.
The Bistro is always great. We sat at the bar, had great service, great drinks and wonderful food. It’s why we go here at least once a month. Cheers!!
We enjoyed a delicious lunch! I hadn’t had good vegetables since the beginning of the pandemic!
Scallops were a must have. My hubby had crab cake. His was good but not his favorite crab cake ever of course we are spoiled we lived in beachside community for 20 years.
Always good, innovative, gotta get the daily risotto!
The food was great. Ravioli with crab meat was the best of our three entrees.
Always the best food and service! Jeremy is an excellent chef! The atmosphere is wonderful! Our service is always friendly! Very clean environment too!
Everything was awesome
Great food. Excellent service. Very enjoyable. Out-of-town guests enjoyed.
Looked for a meal during an overnight stay in Birmingham and Bistro V was our pick as it looked interesting and casual. The food was excellent. The Seafood chowder was very good and the Grits cake with Shrimp was also very good. The Fried Okra was a first for us Northerners. We didn’t have Entrees. There was a Cajun/Italian twist to many things on the menu. The Cocktails were a little pricey and just average. Service was very good. Would recommend.
Food was great, weather was great. We sat outside. View not much but better than some places It was busy which I was happy to see.
Food is always fabulous! Very consistent, never had a bad meal. This is our go to dinner spot.
Always great fish. Katherine at the bar is welcoming and a great hostess.
Food was great as usual as well as service. They are doing a good job with social distancing. We felt safe being there.
Great ambience and great food!
Excellent service and delicious food as always
My happy place!
Wonderful service. Table in front of open door kitchen.
they were out of my dish and couldn't get any fried food. What we got was good but had wanted other items.
Our fryer broke. We bought a new one. Sorry about the inconvenience.
Always a perfect dinner!
The food was very good but not great. Our server was awesome, no complaints at all. The atmosphere was not good at all. Sterile, almost like a school cafeteria. The whole place smelled like the kitchen as in natural gas.
I’m so sorry you felt our environment was sterile. In this current climate, we take this as a compliment. I think what you may have thought was natural gas was the pure grain alcohol we spray on surfaces, in the air and on check presenters throughout the shift to protect our staff and customers from Covid-19.
Bistro-V is always the most pleasant and delicious experience!! Truly one of the best places in Birmingham.
Food was outstanding and piping hot from the kitchen. The bread was yummy too! Enjoyed their interesting cocktails too. Felt very safe eating inside the restaurant as the tables were well separated and some not utilized for social distancing.
We love Jeremy and his amazing cooking talent!! The Filets and Scallops and tomato and mats salads were second to none!!!
