Table ready prior to reservation which is always welcome. We were in smaller dining area to the left, I preferred since seemed quieter than other larger room. There was still noise but was good level.

Service was good, minor hiccups with utensils but remedied quickly.

Food was very good, seasoned well. I wish there was a wider variety of starches available to match protein but the risotto I had was excellent.

Prices seemed reasonable but my friend somehow managed to get his card to staff before me, still not sure how he did it, I was quick...thanks frank :)

Definitely worthy of a “first” and/or return.

Bisque is our go to place for great food, service and price when on LBI. No matter what time of year, you will find the same level of attentive service and great menu items and specials.

A first bad experience here. Waited 20 minutes for ice for the wine. When he came he forgot the iced tea. Finally got ice and the entrees were delivered. He forgot we ordered appetizers. Never came to refill glasses of water or to see if we needed anything. Notified manager

Energetic is a euphemism for very noisy and difficult to hear each other over the background noise. Its a great restaurant but you need to find a way to soak up some of the sound.

My party of four arrived shortly before our reservation time and had to wait just a few minutes. We were seated in the side room and each of us had a very delicious dinner. The wait staff was courteous and attentive. It was an enjoyable evening.

Aside from the ear jarring noise level (and the place was half-full), overall a good dining experience. Fresh ingredients, simply prepared, served promptly and efficiently. High prices, but no higher than other white tablecloth restaurants on LBI.

Made Open Table reservation only to arrive and be told the kitchen was closed. Owner/host was unaware of the reservation. Granted it was a later time on a busy Sunday night, so perhaps call to confirm? Heard otherwise all good things about food, etc.

Our party of 5 enjoyed their meals from appetizers to desserts (which were all really yummy). We were seated in the middle of the restaurant so the noise of tables coming from all angles was a bit much and it was hard to hear others at our table. However, enjoyed dinner and would go back.

We had a very good meal and great service but the noise level was off the charts. Very difficult to carry on a normal conversation. Would strongly suggest some sound dampening tools be installed asap.

Our food was outstanding and the service was the best, but we were seated near a table of very loud people and it just took away from our experience. Someone should have told them to have consideration for the people eating at other tables. When the server read the specials we could not hear them over the roar coming from that table

Our first time at Bisque and we will definitely be back. Food was outstanding, service was excellent! We were pleasantly surprised as we didn’t know what to expect. We were a party of eight and had a bit of a problem with the reservation. What happened is that we made a reservation on Monday for Monday evening for a party of 7. A credit card was taken to hold the reservation. The website read that you can “modify” the reservation until 5:00 pm. At 4:45 we called the restaurant to add another person to our group and we were told they were not able to accommodate 8 people. So we asked to cancel and we were told they had to charge our credit card $140 ($20 per person), we found this a bit extreme especially since we live and frequent many upscale restaurants in Manhattan and we don’t run into this practice. After much negotiating we were able to change the date of our visit to Wednesday and they did not charge us the $140 dollars. Other than that is was a most pleasurable experience and many thanks to our server Lisa she was exceptional!!

We had an enjoyable experience. My tuna with wasabi sauce had way too much wasabi but I could remove it. Everyone else enjoyed their meals. I was disappointed in our seating. I made a reservation several days ahead. We were at a small table for 5, very close to a large noisy table for 9 or 10. Other parts of the dining room were quieter.

Problem with seating customers sitting at a table for 4 when we had a reservation for 5 and not putting us at a table for 5 when 2 tables were free whole time we were there

Our server was absent to be kind. The food was excellent, never had a bad meal here, this was first time our server was poor and May have been due to the end of summer. I would still highly recommend this restaurant. Going to give the service a pass this time due to it being the first I’ve ever experienced here. I look forward to dining here again

We visit Bisque every summer for a traditional family dinner. The food is excellent. This year did not disappoint in the food or service department. I have one thing I would request for next time. We are a family of five and were seated at a four-top table with a chair at the end for the fifth person (me). It was a tight fit. Bisque is a high-priced restaurant, therefore, I would not expect to be squished in a table that was too small for our party. Besides that, the dinner was as good as usual.

Bisque NEVER disappoints. I had the most delicious Halibut with Macadamia Coconut crust. It was a special that I hope they will offer often.
