can't recommend that restaurant, even though it is one of my favorites that was on open table, as it no longer is in business. I am very disappointed that you didn't know that it had closed. We went there during restaurant week with friends and it is now another restaurant. Fortunately we found another restaurant on the street that could take us on short notice. You may want to check it out.
Was extremely disappointed! Arrived on time at restaurant to find out it is now a Mexican restaurant - Dos Rosas. No forewarning at all. Was forced to look for another restaurant on a moment's notice w/o a reservation. Was lucky enough to barely make it to the next restaurant. Not my idea of a fun evening! Please update your records! The new owners should have called us to let us know it changed management & cuisine.
Nice BYOB in old city. Food was tapas style and excellent but a little pricey. The chicken is very good and can feed a party of 4. Duck, soft shell crabs, and tomato salad were tops. Good noise level so conversation was easy. Definitely recommended.
This was my second time dining at Bistro 7. The first time, in the winter, I liked it. The second time, in the summer, I loved it. The food was very interesting, very creative, and very good. The fried foods like soft shell crab and stuffed squash blossoms somehow remained ethereally light and not greasy. All the seafood and a wonderful spring vegetable salad were impeccably fresh. We went on a Tuesday night, and the restaurant was very quiet. I imagine the hard surfaces would make for a noisy experience if it were crowded. I'm a little worried about telling everyone about this terrific restaurant because I don't want it to be mobbed, but then I want them to survive too. You should try it.
My scallops were covered with too much salt and I could not taste the sweet flavor of the scallop, My first course of asparagus was over done with with two cheeses.
We had a wonderful meal. Knowledgeable staff, delicious food, good times had by all.
Every dish we had was really outstanding. The appetizers were great and my husband is still raving about the fried portion of the chicken.
The "small" plates were very imaginative and made for a very interesting, gourmet meal.
Great food. Lovely service. We shared the branzino. I judge restaurants by if I would cook it as well at home . I am an experienced cook, so I believe that is saying something.I would not have bothered to do the work at home on this one. Some things are cooked more easily with a staff. We would come again everything we had was excellent.
Great creative food and relaxing, friendly service,
Fabulous creative, fresh and expertly prepared and presented small plates (which weren't so small). Don't miss the large plate chicken which was sensational! A fantastic find and BYOB too.
Amazing experience with the talented Michael O'Halloran! Best restaurant in the city.
Never disappoints. We always know that we will have a great meal at Bistro 7. You know it's good when your dining companion rolls their eyes after the first bite!
Excellent. Terrific food. Uniquely prepared.
Delicious small plates. Nice variety. Really flavorful. Service was perfect. Great experience-will be going back! PS-Try the oysters!
While the menu may have been shorter on choices than other restaurants, there was no disappointment in the amount of flavor and detail in the dishes served. The whole chicken was beyond ample for our party of two and was so delicious. The salsify was like butter, and the bread served was cake like ..a meal in itself. Would surely go back.
We were very pleased with the inventive food in a low key BYOB setting. I think the room would be very loud if it were full, but mercifully they were not busy the night we were there. We definitely plan to return often.
I love byobs and small plates. But the plates varied too widely from very good to one that was terrible.
Noise level was horrible. They must do something about it. Prevents conversation...even though they did not play loud music. (which would have been worse).
The very good: gnocchi, tuna, lamb meatballs, mushroom mille feuille (which only had two feuille (sheets but the flavor was great.
Disappointing the duck breast (flavor was fine but a tad overcooked)
Horrific: The desert choc. cremeux. tasted like a lump of canned icing; cold, flavorless, clawing. Stunningly bad for an upscale place. Worse than a tasty cake.
I would be willing to try it again if they hired a noise suppression team. Hanging rugs and hundreds of things known to modern architects. Such promise by a creative chef ruined by stuff they can correct.
Really enjoyed the Parisian gnocchi (our favorite!) & lamb meatball tapas ... however, the Mediterranean branzino entree was just ok.
What a treat to finally try this lovely BYO - absolutely delicious, fresh, inventive dishes with lovely unfussy serivce. Perfect, if a bit pricey, for a foodie treat.
