First time here and the best meal we have ever had. Every course was great and we loved the wine pairing option. The cream of crab soup was perfect and the steak was perfect.

As always, the food was delicious. The cauliflower appetizer and gazpacho were very tasty. Our server was personable and attentive, and ensured we had plenty of time to enjoy each course before the next one came out.

My wife and I went to Pairings Bistro for the first time on a date Saturday evening. The service was excellent from the door to the table and back again! The pairing concept was well played out with each course and the food was flawlessly prepared. You can taste the quality ingredients with every inspired bite. Every dish seemed to have its own take of originality, or stubbornness, either way it was delicious! Some of my wife’s family hail from Louisiana, and she absolutely loved the Creole Chicken, stating, “It tastes just like I remember”. Thanks again Pairings Bistro!

Michelle our server was awesome! The food was delicious as were all of the wines. A true treasure chest hidden in the shopping center. My husband and I work really hard and love to relax and be at peace equally so. The Pairings helped us find that right combo of good food, wine, kind people and and very relaxing and peaceful atmosphere. Great job! We will see you again soon!!!

We enjoyed dinner here and highly recommend it. We started with mussels, which were a special on a Tuesday night. All four of us thought they were the best mussels we've ever tasted. One of us enjoyed the cream of crab soup and raved about it. Our entrees were also terrific. We've taken out-of-towners here before and plan to visit in the future. Great service as well!

I surprised my wife for our 26th wedding anniversary and I showed up an hour ahead of our reservation to drop off flowers and a card. The staff chose a table for 2 in the dining area and had the flowers/card waiting when we arrived. The ambiance was perfect and the food was great. Definitely recommend for a special occasion.

I love this place, usually. The night I went was a belated Mother's Day Dinner. When then server came to out table to great us, 2 out of the 6-7 main courses were unavailable. One main course was missing ingredients. All had no substitutions. I was very disappointed.

They really do need to offer a couple crackers or breadsticks or something to put in your stomach with the first glass as you wait for starter or salads etc. the starter is about 4 bites of food. Very delicious food but meanwhile wine is going straight into my bloodstream and I can't make it to dessert.
Overall it's delicious food. Soo expensive to leave hungry though. The outdoor chairs are also uncomfortable which takes from the experience.

Sadly a far cry from meals we've enjoyed there in the past. out of promoted specialty items, very boring plating, no veggies on entrees, smaller portions ... they were flexible about making a change for an allergy however .. most likely our last visit

The no refers to the brunch menu, not necessarily the day-to-day fare. The carving station consisted of roast beef (the good) and ham (the bad). The ham was dry and quite insipid. I was disappointed that the leg of lamb was not available as had been advertised. The best hot food were the sausages and bacon. The potatoes were dry and not flavorful at all, ie, bland. The corn was killed by the sauce. The seafood paella, lobster mac and creole chicken were dull schlock. The tomato/goat cheese tart was also not available. This was the 4th year I have gone to Easter brunch. The first, in 2016, rated an A+; the three since could do no better than a C. Right now, it is still far in the future, but I would have to look elsewhere for Easter brunch.
