Consistently one of my favorites! Took some close friends there this past weekend and all had a great time. Great food, great service.....I do miss the "Duck Two Ways" that used to be on the menu.

Consistently one of my favorite restaurants. All that I can say is this chef/owner GETS IT. His ability to pair foods and tastes that you never would think would work together is just amazing!

Our first Casserole dining experience was on Valentine’s Day. The restaurant has a great vibe to it. Food was plated beautifully and tasted better than it looked. We enjoyed ourselves. Would recommend and go again. BYOB

We used this place as a middle location. When we first came in nobody acknowledged us after they pointed to our table.
My husband and I got there first and they didn’t offer us water or to take our coats or anything. It was a cold day in January and our table was right by the door. The place was very small so not many people came in and out but when the door opened it was cold. Most of us sat with our jackets on. They don’t have any way to cover the door from letting the air in. The food was pretty good but the ambiance was not. The waiter was just ok. We were able to get a reservation for 8 people quickly but it was a long table (we preferred round) and we will probably not be back.

First time there and we will return! All of our entrees were excellent. Salmon, tuna, eggplant and short ribs were all nice sizes and prepared as ordered. Some unusual appetizers -delicious buffalo chicken meatballs ( had a kick) onion soup dumplings (yum) We enjoyed the fact that we did not have to yell to be heard across the table.

This place is such a hidden gem! It doesn’t look like much for the outside but the food is incredible. We went here about 2 years ago and had a fantastic dinner with friends. Haven’t been able to make it back since but we decided to go for a date night and nothing has changed (in a good way!). Everything is fresh and made to order. Menu is diverse and yummy. BYOB. Really nice staff.

We have come a number of times and have enjoyed each of our meals. The ingredients and flavors are well balanced and compliment the meat/fish of the entree. Each meal takes some time, since each meal is prepared to the order, which provides for some conversation and not being hurried out the door. The only way to find out about the Casserole Bistro is to give it a try.

We've been here 3 times now - and its always really good! It's very small but the food is amazing! Last time we went - for the two of us we had one app, two entrees, one dessert and coffee and it was under $100 bucks. We moved out of Bloomfield but still come back to this restaurant. Love it!

The food is spot on. Johnny takes care to put out a perfect plate. The service is outstanding...courteous and polite. Happy to make recommendations and accommodate your needs. There's no one pushing you put the door to turn over tables...many times willing to make conversation 9r ask about family.
There's nothing about Casserole Bistro I could complain about. It clean, friendly, and the food is amazing. Weekend specials are always inviting but I recommend the Onion Soup Dumplings...go there just for that.
Thank you Johnny for never letting me down!

This was either my 4th or 5th time here. My wife and I shared a number of small plates. We had the Mediterranean Cold Plate ; as usual at Casserole, the amount of food was plentiful (I highly recommend this dish). Same was true with the Steamed Mussels (which were very plump; I've had it in other places where they a small and stringy) and the Buffalo Meatballs. The server was outstanding in giving advice and also attentiveness. We left the restaurant full and very satisfied. (Another plus is this is a BYOB).

I went with family and close friends to celebrate my birthday. I'd been there before but no one else had. They absolutely loved it. Said everything they tasted was terrific. Chef Johnny came out to greet us and the applause was deafening. Had one of the best birthday dinners ever.

What a special place. I had the short ribs. Scraped my dish clean just like our waiter said I would . As well as my husband did, he had the scallops. The presentation of both of our meals were beautiful. I would definitely go back, want to try more things!

Had a lovely dinner with in-laws, husband and three young to teen children. The food was very good (particularly the crab cakes and osso bucco) although on the pricier side (with many entrees over $25). The food was slow to arrive and our meal was 2+ hours, but the servers were friendly and attentive. The restaurant is small, but cozy. BYOB helps keep the cost the down. We would definitely return.

Decided to dine out last minute and made an early reservation. Brought bottle of wine with me as it’s BYOB.
Started with stuffed mushrooms appetizer. Delicious! They were stuffed with blue cheese but it was just right and did not jell the taste as BC can! The entree was a seafood special that was served on a seashell. Again it was excellent. Then had a dessert. Yummy as well!
Was afraid of what the bill would be as I had specials that were “off” the menu. Instead it was much LESS that I thought!
Will definitely be returning in the near future.

Casserole offers delicious, lovingly prepared, and beautifully presented cuisine in a small, cozy, and casually elegant setting. To complement the scrumptious food, the service is exceptionally attentive and friendly. Dining at this neighborhood gem truly is a treat! BYOB. Nightly specials. My husband and I enjoyed a pre-Valentine's Day date last Tuesday. I chose the ravioli special--white mushroom--and savored every bite! My husband selected a trusted favorite: short ribs. For dessert, we shared an elevated twist on churros, cream-filled and delectable. So, so good!
