    Our first time dining at 908 on a Saturday eve was very good! Our waitress was very attentive and provided help with menu choices. Food was very nicely presented and was delicious and some entrees have a Caribbean flair. My husband had grilled swordfish and I had the short ribs which were excellent. We both had salads, mine was the cape cod salad and my husband enjoyed the beet salad. We also had dessert even though we were quite full after the main entree and salad. Both desserts, crème brûlée and caramel bread pudding were good also. Need reservations! The seating capacity is small. Even at 5:30, the place was full!

    4 of us had dinner. Cajun salmon, curry chicken, ahi tuna and a bbq pulled salmon taco special. Everyone loved their meals. 908 continues to impress us every time. Now they have a full liquor license and we also enjoyed the martinis. Run, don’t walk!

    This place is amazing!!!! Absolutely worth the drive from the Outer Cape The owners are lovely and you are greeted warmly. I noticed as more people came and went that all reservations were ready when you checked in. I had a huge piece of swordfish cooked perfectly served over parmesan risotto with a sun-dried tomato and shallot sauce. There was nothing left on my plate or anyone else's for that matter. The tuna sashimi app could have been a main course and the Caesar salad had the perfect combo of dressing and grated Parm. Another friend had the seared scallops and pronounced them perfect!. Since the chef is Jamaican my 3rd friend said it was the best she has ever had. The deserts are also all made in house It's a small place - simple and warm. The rolls were warm and delicious Just don't miss it - it's not fancy but the food makes it outstanding! Make reservations and give it a try

    I have never in my life has posted anything about a restaurant. Last night we went to 908 Bistro in Rt 28 in South Yarmouth. It is a small restaurant with enormously good food. My cousin and I had osso buco, which I have never encountered on any menu on Cape Cod. My husband had sea food filled sole. They were all incredible good, freshly cooked after we placed our order. Desserts, bread pudding and creme brulee, were also excellent. Service was great by a lady with constant smiles and very friendly attitude. We highly recommend this restaurant.

    Scallops slightly over cooked. Salads (beet and Caesar) were tasty. Broiled cod was perfect and as an early bird special, it came w/jasmine rice and veggies. We’d been before so knew it’s small.

    We visited 908 Bistro for our first visit on the last night before they closed for a winter break. The food was very good and arrived quickly, the service was friendly and excellent and we arrived early enough to take advantage of the Early Bird Specials, so the value was outstanding. We will be back for certain!

    We had been wanting to dine at 908 Bistro since they opened last year after hearing good things, but it was always too busy. Well the word on the street that this new restaurant is crushing it is true. So glad we finally made it! The woman who greeted us as soon as we entered the restaurant was so nice, making us feel like welcomed guests. We later learned that she and the chef are the owners, and her teen son was helping to set up tables. Our server was super friendly and pleasant throughout dinner, checking in occasionally with perfect timing, taking great care of us. For cocktails we both had a menu special, the Apple cider margarita. OMG delicious! Warm ciabatta rolls with butter were brought out with the drinks too. Onto the appetizer, we were in a seafood mood and went with Fried calamari and pickles with spicy aioli dip, so good. The fried pickles was a nice twist on an old classic appetizer. For main courses, she had the Cajun shrimp fettuccini alfredo and said it was delicious, not spicy as you would expect but perfectly seasoned flavors. I had the Grilled swordfish on parmesan risotto with vegetables (string beans and carrots). Loved this dish, the flavor profiles were bomb. Fish was perfectly grilled and the risotto had a nice bite and cheesiness to it. We would order these two dishes again. Overall, a wonderful experience and awesome food. We love supporting local businesses owned and managed by local families. These owners have done a wonderful job turning this cozy place into a warm welcoming bistro with awesome food and service. We will definitely be back!

    Food was quite good. Told that rolls were on the way when we ordered drinks, but had to ask 3 times before they were served. Mix up with our charges had to be changed. One of us was double charged. She was still waiting for credit as of 11/12.

    We had 7pm reservations and got an early start out the door so we called to see if we could come in at 6:30. We were told that they were full and there was no way we could come at 6:30. When we showed up at 7, the restaurant had one person at the counter bar area and one table of 4. There is no way in the world they were full at 6:30. We didn’t appreciate being lied to on the phone. Then after 2 other tables were seated about 10-15 minutes after we ordered… they were all served their food first!

    We like to dine early. This was not your typical early bird dinner. We were started with warm rolls and butter. Then a beautiful salad. My tender steak tips were served with omg creamy mashed potatoes. The vegetable was fresh not frozen carrots and green beans. Portions left us with no room for dessert. Food so good we had to take home one. Yummy carmelized apple and rum bread pudding. Fresh apples not the gooey canned stuff. Definitely will be back to try some of the other dishes.

    908 Bistro had outstanding food and service. The chefs there know what they're doing! Our waitress was the best! A little pricey but most locales are today because of inflation. I wish the place was bigger so you could go without a reservation. Also, there should be a sign in front in lot stating additional parking on side and back.

    We were early bird customers and thoroughly enjoyed the steak tips and chicken parmigiana. I prefer a Caesar salad with more dressing but otherwise good. The clam chowder was excellent; arrived hot and spicier than normal. Enjoyed it very much. Server easily handled every table with enthusiasm and efficiency. Will definitely return.

    Absolutely fantastic experience again at this local gem. I had the grilled swordfish accompanied by parmesan risotto and carrots/green beans. My bride had the steak tips with the most scrumptious whipped mashed potatoes. Our daughter and visiting guest both had the scallops served over pasta. To round out our meals, our guest and I enjoyed a most delectable apple/caramel bread pudding and my bride enjoyed a slice of spectacular key lime pie. Overall, a most delicious and memorable meal. Don't just walk to this wonderful neighborhood bistro....RUN! Great job, 908!

    First time dining there. Had heard great things about it. We were not disappointed. Staff was very friendly, food delcious. Took advantage of their early bird specials, wife had baked cod and I had steak tips. Sautéed vegetable were delicious (and I normally don’t eat vegetables!) Bottle of wine reasonably priced. Creme brûlée was outstanding. Kudos to our server Lindsay for making us feel welcome.

    The Caesar salad was ok, not enough dressing. My steak tips were very good. My husband and another couple had the cod and said it was ok, nothing outstanding. It was a little noisy inside since it is such a small place. Out waitress was not as attentive as we would have liked since she never came to refill our water glasses until we got our bill. She said she wasn't herself that night. Our dessert which was the creme brulee was good. I thought the meals were priced right for the early bird specials. I would recommend the restaurant.

    This has been our fourth time at 908 Bistro. My husband has celiac disease and they offer so many gluten free options. Yesterday we had the fried fisherman’s platter (gluten free) It was the best fried food I have had in recent memory. Gluten free or not you will definitely want to try their fried seafood! The chef (owner) even made us gluten free onion rings which my husband can’t get very often because most friend foods have cross contamination in the deep fryer.

    We went early so not sure what the noise level would be once the tables are full as it is a small dining room. We chose to share 2 apps and they were outstanding . The service was spot-on. The potato ball appetizer was quite savory and filled with cheese lightly cooked on the outside with just the right amount of crunch. Also shared the pear, Brie and bacon flatbread . These flavors complemented themselves well into a savory and sweet blend and the crust of the flatbread was cooked perfectly. There are also EB options for dinner which we viewed other patrons getting and those seemed like a great option at $21. Our 2 apps came to $28 which was very reasonable . Cannot wait to go back !
