    Food is exceptionally delicious. Great variety of options. Dessert was excellent too. Awesome wine selection. Only complaint would be the place can get quite loud due to the reverberation of people's voices, but it wasn't a deal breaker.

    Delicious meal. Servers were nice, but seemed very rushed. (Maybe short staffed?) This was my fourth or fifth time here and i always enjoy it. Lamb chops were outstanding and my friends apple hand pie dessert was very good! The shrimp appetizer has been enjoyed at each meal and the sauce is fantastic, but the focaccia was very tough and difficult to cut through last night. It was pretty loud at 7 if you’re looking for an intimate setting.

    My favorite place. But this time was a miss. The pork chop is my go to. This time however it was a bit dry. They didn’t have the potatoes…which truly make the dish as they are so delicious…and didn’t bother to let me know beforehand. the few veggies offered were poor. The roasted pistachios were not included as well. Really hope it was a one off as I come here couple times a month and enjoy this place. I’ve given many 5 star reviews to house wine. Just not this go. Damn.

    Always great services when we dine here. The appetizer we chose was the best we have had so far, it was a shrimp dish that was big enough to be considered a meal. Cocktail drinks are always great, had a strawberry Bellini.

    A very nice restaurant. Food was very good. Service slipped a bit by making us wait 30 minutes for our dessert and then calling us at home to report it was accidentally not out on bill - but would Be added 2 hours after we left restaurant. Manager sorted it all out correctly, but it should never have happened in the first place.

    Overall wonderful experience. Very considerate host, waiter, & chef. I requested an animal-friendly/plant-based meal and the restaurant outdid themselves. I was presented with impressive options. I chose a stuffed mushroom appetizer that was delightfully soft, it melted in my mouth. For the main course, I chose a cauliflower steak. The chef cooked it in a light sauce that allowed the meatiness in the cauliflower to develop nicely. If you’ve cooked a thick cauliflower, you know it’s difficult to get it at a steak texture, but this chef used great culinary skills to get the perfect texture! Great work, y’all! I can’t wait to go back!

    Nothing could’ve been better about our experience here. The server knew what wine to recommend after a short time speaking with us. The food, and customer service were top notch. The manager came around twice to make sure our meals were perfection. They were! Will go back next time we’re in town for sure.

    It was a very nice gesture by the staff mgr to offer me a salad to eat while i waited for my steak which came rare instead of medium well. It was done perfectly after sending back and the remainder of the meal was excellent as well. The pesto risotto was wonderful and my husbands steak was also very delicious. We celebrated New Yrs with the caramel apple pie aka mode! Yum!

    Our waiter was exceptional. Friendly but not bothersome. The food was excellent and the portion was just right. We were given a gift certificate and this was an excellent choice by our daughter who also gave us a certificate to Salt last year. Highly recommend this Bistro. We went for New Year's Eve and the night was special.

    We have been to this location before. The wine selection is unique and offers some vintages that you don't normally see. Wines by the glass are a bit high. They offered a paper menu and then it was recycled. Not sure why they aren't using a digital menu at tables when it is offered when you walk in. Food was fine. I had the butternut risotto but not much squash in it. I anticipated much more. They did accommodate my change of protein request. My wife had a shrimp meal that was bad. The response from the manager was fantastic - came to the table to check on us and ask about the food. It was an immediate response and he agreed that the shrimp was past due. The manager took the meal off the bill. Waiter was somewhat new and attentive to us. I highly recommend the restaurant yet this visit wasn't the best. We would definitely return.

    Food and service are consistently very good here. The biggest drawback is the noise volume. It's an echo chamber in there, and even without being packed, it was challenging to have a conversation across the table, or to communicate in a relaxed way with the waitstaff. Lunch time used to be better, but HW isn't open for lunch these days. Maybe the volume is part of the "scene", but it seems excessive.
