We were a party of 3 and chose the 3 course prix fixe meals with pairings. We appreciated the laid-back, unrushed feel of the evening. Our server was very attentive but not the least hovering. Anything we asked for was provided. The food was delicious and beautifully presented, though a piece of veg or 2 would have been a nice addition to the meat entrees. We started with the cheese and charcuterie plate (a nice value with the prix fixe meal), cream of crab soup, golden beet salad(a must try), and a caesar salad (reportedly the best ever). We got the beefsteak, which came on a bed of truffle fries, the sea bass (fish special), and the pork chop. All were delicious. We particularly appreciated the flexibility with the wine pairings, since some did not want white though that was the pairing. Our waiter was able to recommend a compatible red, though, as he said, it doesn't really matter...just choose something you like! He was also willing to give us tastings of any wines we may want. It can end up being bit pricey, but there are ways around that since the menu is quite flexible. A great experience!

Never less than superb! Always leave wondering why we don’t come more often. Eric has been our server on several occasions and he has always been attentive, professional and informative- He demonstrates excellent knowledge of both the menu and beverages.

A very enjoyable experience from the service to the selection of food and adult beverages. The mussels served "Brussels" style are always consistently good.
A plentiful serving was had. The truffle coated with Parmesan fries were delicious. The standout beverage was the classic red sangria.

Food was excellent, but our server did not explain the menu and how the wine tasting worked so we missed out on the various pairings.

It's a great Bistro. I loved all their meals but I especially loved the Lobster Mac n Cheese. Their wine selection is pretty broad, and you can also purchase a bottle of your favorite wine and take it with you. Service is wonderful!

Went out for date night with the hubby. Service was friendly and fast. Wine and food were exceptional. My husband adds salt and pepper to all his food and never even asked for them. Loved the wine barrel decor.

My husband and I were there for our wedding anniversary dinner. We tried a new place and just loved it. Eric was our waiter and was informative about the menu and very professional. We loved the special way our dessert was served. We will definitely be back. Thank you for an extremely enjoyable celebration.
