The food and service was great. It’s not clear to me if the restaurant had our reservation. But we got seated in the area we wanted immediately
DennisR, thank you for the kind review and are pleased to hear that the food and service were great! We did indeed have your reservation. Hope to see you again soon. Thank you,
One Bistro is an incredible hidden gem. We absolutely love it there. The food is so well prepared and absolutely delicious. They use fresh fruit and real maple syrup which is so hard to find at the average breakfast spot these days. Since the first time we tried it we have been back an additional two times to try new menu items and we’ll probably go back again soon. Also, the basket of mini pastries is such a wonderful special touch. We love it there.
Positive: friendly and professional staff; the quality and presentation of the food; the atmosphere; the table linen.
Open for improvement: the wine menu is pretty classic and safe; the food menu is more limited that in the past (no entrée with duck or lamb; only salmon as fish).
Belgium thank you for your review, we did remove some items from the menu due to the high cost of specific items and we did not want to over charge our guests. We will expand the menu as time goes. We thank you and hope to see you again soon.
Food was very good and vegan options were delicious and different. Service was very good. Only complaint was we were a party of 2 and we were seated between two large parties at round tables, crowding us between them. With COVID we weren’t too comfortable with so many people jammed near us.
Straightshooter, thank you for your review and we are pleased that you enjoyed the food and service. We do apologize for the seating arrangement and appreciate you bringing this to our attention. We do our best to accommodate all of our guests and want to make sure all parties are comfortable. We hope that we are able to make you more comfortable on your next visit. Thank you.
always fresh food and consistent good service never disappointed
Steve thank you for the kind and thoughtful review. We will share this with the staff!
Great waitress great food always excellent when ever we go there!!
Great. Group of ladies all loved it
Thank you so much!
Had a great meal at One Bistro, this restaurant is comfortable and quaint. The menu has a nice selection and the food is delicious. Will be planning to go back soon!
CathyR, thank you for the kind review we are pleased to hear you found our menu to have a nice selection and your food was delicious!
Last time I went to One Bistro I was VERY disappointed and wound up speaking with the manager after posting my review on Open Table. This time I ordered something different (the Trio) and was there for lunch as opposed to dinner but had the opposite experience.
Thank you antpammy, we appreciate you giving One Bistro another chance.
A friend took me here for a celebration dinner. We opted to order from the Early Bird Special Menu. This was a great value. Only thing is I wish it had more entree options.
Service was amazing and food was as good as remembered from pre-Covid visits. They are doing a great job, especially given the pandemic related issues many restaurants are suffering.
Will definitely return here.
beejay, thank you very much for your kind review, we do our best to adhere to COVID guidelines past and present. And we are happy you enjoyed dinner!
This is our GO TO restaurant when we want to have a night out with friends and know that we will have scrumptious food, fabulous friendly service, quiet enough to enjoy conversations all in a lovely setting. The special of grilled lamb chops with brussel sprouts and roasted potatoes was outstanding! My husband's seared scallops were perfectly done with a flavorful sear. The steak frites and chicken parm were also enjoyed by our guests.
We just keep on coming back....you can never go wrong here!
kotoole, wow, thank you for such a wonderful review. We can't wait to share with our team, we are very happy you enjoyed all of our favorites as well! We do hope to see you again soon. Thanks!
As always, our meals were excellent and an over abundance. They have a wonderful assortment of breads. Only the coffee was not good. They immediately brought us new cups. Our server was wonderful
ZoeC, thank you very much for the kind review. We are pleased we were able to rectify the coffee for you, thank you and hope to see you soon.
Excellent restaurant! Food is always the best ! Great service by our waitress Nina !! We love it here !
shelleyh, thank you for the review! We will be happy to share with our chefs and Nina!
Exceptional! Look forward to returning to One Bistro again!
LeoneCreative, thank you! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Delicious food every time I dine here! And the waitstaff and Kitchen are wonderful about accommodating my food restrictions. Love it here.
MargaretF, thank you so much! We do take all dietary restrictions very seriously and are pleased we are able to accommodate. See you again soon!
Always tasty always great service always amazing
KingRamchSam, we appreciate the kind review! Hope to see you again soon.
Really enjoy their covered outdoor patio, and the cranberry raisin bread is yummy! Their lunch trio offerings are an excellent value although I opted for a seafood casserole special that was very enjoyable.
denndy, thank you for the kind review. Our Trio's are our favorites as well! We hope to see you again soon! Thank you for the kind review.
So happy the Harvest Salad is back! Always delicious! Also tried the Empress drink which is empress gin and tonic. Delicious. Great ambiance and service.
MichelleC, thank you! We are also happy the Harvest Salad is back we patiently wait for fall time to bring that one back. Hope to see you again soon and thank you agian!
One Bistro is really a gem. We have lived in Norwood for about five years now and had only been to One Bistro once for brunch. It was good, but seemed a little pricey. We definitely had a negative impression about the restaurant from afar - Who expects a great meal at a restaurant attached to a hotel? We decided to give One Bistro a chance after we saw the team compete and win at Guy's Grocery Games on Food Network, and WE WERE BLOWN AWAY BY THE FOOD. The food was amazing, all of it. Drinks were great too and it definitely transports you away from a "hotel restaurant" on a highway. We will definitely go back - my steak was cooked to perfection, my wife's french fries were so good. Dessert was awesome. It was really, really worth it. We have to make an apology to everyone at One Bistro. Sorry for judging you as a hotel restaurant. We were very wrong and look forward to eating there again soon!
SocttK, we cannot express how thankful we are for your review. We do understand the 'hotel/restaurant' perception and are very pleased you gave us a try - no need to apologize. We can't wait to share your review with our staff and Chef Paul. Thank you for giving us a try and we hope to see you again very soon!
Celebrated my mom's 84 th birthday, One Bistro was excellent ! Got very busyafter we were seated, but the wait staff was able to keep up, even though short staffed. They are very hard workers and the nicest people also. Our time was for 4:45p, seated right away, we had a reservation ! Food was excellent, great dining experience! We will be returning for sure.
JaniceH, wow! Thank you so much for the kind review! We are genuinely appreciative that you and your party celebrated our mother's 84th birthday with us. Thank you for the staff notes and we cannot wait to share this with the team. We look forward to servicing you again soon.
Great service very knowledgeable and professional
PatD thank you for the 5 stars and kind review!
It was the end of a very special vacation!
Chris, thank you for the kind review and we hope you had a fantastic vacation!
One Bistro is consistently good and the help is well trained and professional.
Thank you for the kind review PAKN, we appreciate this very much and will share with the staff.
We enjoyed our evening at One Bistro. The majority of food with very good, but the steak was extremely salted.
MaryannR, thank you the your review, we appreciate all feedback and will look into why the steak was over seasoned for you. We are pleased that you did enjoy everything else. Please ask for Jemo the manager next time you come in to visit us.
Glad we finally made it! The menu had lots of nice options and everyone was happy with their order. Among three of us we had the lamb chops, cowboy burger, onion soup, and bistro salad. Service was excellent. We were outside, so basically in the parking lot, but my mom was amused watching the shower attendees take selfies with the hotel marquis.
Hester, we thank you for your kind review and really happy you and your family enjoyed everything even things out of our control like the selfies! Hope to see you soon
Our go to place when meeting with friends...menu always has something for everyone, nice wine list, lovely ambiance, and terrific service. Our foursome had shrimp scampi, baked scallops risotto, chicken parmesan, and grilled salmon....ALL were scrumptious!
kotoole, thank you very much for the kind review, we will be happy to share this with the staff. We are pleased that you enjoyed all of our favorites! Hope to see you again very soon!
Floor could have been cleaner. Felt very closed in sitting under the tent although we did ask for outdoor seating. Waitress staff was great. Food was excellent. Didn’t feel rushed. Would definitely go back!
Thank you for the review MailynM, we appreciate the feed back and make every attempt to keep up with the cleanliness of our restaurant. The reason for the awning in the patio area is to cover our guests from the sun and or rain. We are pleased you did enjoy the food and our waitress, we do hope to see you again soon. Thank you kindly for the 5 stars.
With a general staff storage in the industry I thought crew was excellent. Second time, in a month, on Saturday night enough said!
Duke, we sincerely appreciate your review and are pleased to see you are coming back! We do our best to make sure all of our guests are taken care of and we appreciate the acknowledgement very much . Hope to see you again very soon!
We have dined at One Bistro many times over the years. This occasion was to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. And we were very satisfied. It was as good as it has ever been. The food and service was great. One Bistro provided desert for our anniversary which was very nice. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
KenB, happy anniversary to you and your spouse. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed everything with us and appreciate you choosing One Bistro to celebrate your special day.
One Bistro is a no brainer for lunch, they have the "Trio" for $15, which is a deal.
I had their special of the day, a salad with grilled shrimp, spinach, walnuts, goat cheese, strawberries and balsamic dressing.
Not a leaf left, it was tasty.
Cocktails always well made. I'll be back.
Kakestoo, thank you very much for the kind review. We will be sharing this with our staff and management team. We are pleased that you enjoyed the Trio, its one of our favorites too.
Just what you'd expect in a restaurant based in a hotel chain. Disorganized staff causing seating and serving errors. Bland, unimaginative food. However, it was all about the location (halfway between me and my friend) and the outdoor seating. Few masks in view.
Scrabblequeen, we apologize for not meeting your standards as one of our guests. If possible can you please elaborate your recent experience with the manager Jemo in hopes to correct this - Please call 781.255.3146 which is his direct line. Thank you.
Wonderful restaurant! Excellent food and service.
Look forward to going back.
jilpe thank you for the very kind review! We look forward to seeing you back soon! Thank you!
There were four of us celebrating summer birthdays. Our waitress, Kimberly was EXCELLENT!
Thank you for taking such hood care of us including the delicious, complimentary dessert!
Thank you so much for sharing this! We will let Kimberly know as well and Happy Birthdays to all!
Luncheon Menu is extensive and has something for everyone, as well as wonderful value in the Trio Menu. Our Server, Sean, was outstanding.
Thank you for sharing and we appreciate the kind words regarding our lunch menu and Sean!
Consistently good food. Very kid friendly. Great service. Love their patio.
MauriceJ, thank you for the awesome review! Hope to see you again soon.
Always a great experience here. Staff and food were terrific
Salesguy! Thank you we will be hsaring your 5 star review with our team. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
A group of friends and I meet there once a month for lunch. It is perfect as a place to catch up and visit as well as to enjoy a tasty meal. We are of varied tastes and all are pleased.
JaneM, we are very pleased to have met you and your groups needs while dining with us. We hope to see you again soon and appreciate the 5 stars!
Our server Sean was outstanding and the food at One Bistro is always great.
Sorry this thank you note is late.
We would like to thank you “again” for the wonderful food and the excellent service you all provided on 8/28. The hostess and staff were so nice.
We took my cousins here for dinner. My cousins have never been to your restaurant but we told them all about it. They were so “impressed” with the service, food, staff, and clean restaurant. Of course!!
Huge thank you to Arcely, Jemo and the guys in the kitchen.
The food was amazing and the desserts. Wow!!
Again, we want ALL of you to know how much we appreciate the excellent service you all provided on 8/28. Arcely and Jemo thanks so much for your time, smiles and laughs. This made the experience even better. My cousins had a great time. Excellent job with the food and presentation.
Ann Marie and the gang. We will be back soon. ;)
Ann Marie, thank you so much for the kind review. We will be more than happy to share this with all the staff and management mentioned. We are so pleased we were able to accommodate you and your party and even more so that our service and standards were to your liking. Thank you so much!
Have not been for dinner but it was excellent for lunch. The food was all very good to great. The server had the right amount of friendliness and class. She was both professional and efficient. She did not push us at all. Very patient. Surroundings are clean and had an upscale feel. Prices are reasonable for the servings and high level of presentation. I would recommend this restaurant and look forward to returning for dinner.
