    The service was very good. Lots of employees running around with IPads making notes while looking at tables. Not sure waht they were doing but maybe estimating when that table would be open based on where the people were with their dinner. That was weird. Lots of employees running. Food was ok.

    Bistro 217 is a top notch restaurant for locals as well as visitors to our lovely area. I really liked the food being served all at once for each member of my party. Other restaurants used to do this but unfortunately, have given up this practice. Food was excellent and as always a great value. You won’t be dissatisfied!

    This was our first visit, and I realize we went on a busy night, and things were running late. I would have enjoyed being in the main dining area. I also applaud the wait staff, for switching tables and seating us in a timely fashion. Overall excellent service.

    The hostess staff is friendly and efficient. Server Amy Lee knows her way around and is a delight. We asked for the terrace for an early birthday dinner, and so it was a bit noisy and I'm not a fan of the heavy chairs. The Crabcake appetizer was delicate and lovely. One of our entrees was better than the other. We shared the delightful house-made ice cream. Another good experience!

    Food and service was very good. Was very disappointed when waitress advised the restaurant could not accept Visa gift cards as payment. The excuse given was the antiquated cash register system. However, they were able to accept a credit card?

    Crowded and a bit noisy even at 6:00 pm. Otherwise everything was perfect! Our server, Helen, was friendly , professional and attentive without being intrusive. The food was prepared perfectly, presented beautifully and at a perfect temperature. All-in all a AAA dining experience in tiny Pawleys Island.

    We had a lovely meal. Our server Danielle was very efficient, she had a large table next to us and she handled it wonderfully. We never felt as though she was too bust for us as a table of 2, compared to the other table of 8. The special was delicious. And Danielle recommended the bread pudding!, it was great!

    This occasion was an overdue family gathering. We could not have been more pleased with the service of our waitress who was so knowledgeable about menu items and was helpful with our selections. Everyone one of us gave our dish an A+. I had the Hawaiian salad which was one of the best meals I have had for lunch.
