So many people close together and it was hard to hear. Not sure how to fix that. Place was packed and everyone was speaking very loud just to be heard above the noise of others.

We hadn’t seen these friends for several years and probably overstayed the expected time for use of our table. Nevertheless, we were never rushed — somewhat rare in today’s frenetic times. The courtesy was much appreciated.

I love the restaurant and return regularly. I was there with a large party and the server couldn't keep up. We had to repeatedly ask for bread and apps that were never served. When he was on the ball, he was super nice and did his job well. The table just needed more assistance for 10 people. I'll still go back, but with a smaller party.

Always a delightful time at Bistro 31. Our server Ken was quick with answers and suggestions, as usual. He accomplishes attentive without being disruptive, which is surprisingly rare-but this kind of service is why we return often.

We ordered branzino. It was mushy and inedible; likely frozen 2X. The manager was extremely apologetic ans removed the fish from our bill.We have dined there many times and have always been pleased.

Bistro 31 is one of our favorite Sunday brunch options! The service is outstanding, the ambience is pleasant, the food is exceptional, and, did I mention, the service is outstanding? We have introduced family and friends to this jewel and it continues to be our "go-to" favorite for Sunday brunch.

Almost everything about our dinner was great; however, it would've been better if the music upstairs were quieter.

Omar was fantastic!! Best wait-person we've had in ages! The pasta with mushrooms was equally as good as the best places in NYC!! Omar suggested as a shared starter and he was right---good but very rich. My salmon was cooked to perfection as was the salmon served to my friend, even though hers was much more "done" as she requested. My husband had a filet and said it was "just right". It was a lovely evening and we always enjoy Bistro 31 but this seemed the best. Maybe it was what Omar added to our experience.

The food and service here is always delightful. This was the first time we sat on the patio when it is enclosed for cold weather. The space is loud, crowded, and the temperature control is uneven. We will definitely come back, but won’t sit on the patio in cold weather.

Awesome service tonight! Busier than expected weekend, out of our first two choices of wine, two other servers stopped by offering suggestions instead of the back and forth with one server. Food is amazing in addition.

My brother and I went for an early brunch on Sunday, it’s always a pleasure eating here. You can feel the love of all the people who works there, it was my brother’s birthday and they surprised us with a complementary tiramisu. The food is great and the brunch menu is huge!

What a wonderful brunch. Food was delicious (don't pass up the almond croissant)! Service was impeccable. Candace was an exceptional server. She made excellent recommendations and was very attentive. That level of service puts Bistro 31 in it's own category!!!

Warm, agreeable, greeting at the door. Great cocktails. Waiter pleasant and helpful. Attentive. Food always good -- a little "originality," -- Flavorful. Portions just right. Valet parker nice. We're practically "regulars" at Bistro. Always enjoy a visit with Mr. Bratcher.

The food, service, and ambience were all fantastic. The services provided by the professional management and staff are the main reasons that we keep coming back. The old world elegance is a rare thing, and we value their focus to make sure that everything about the dining experience is excellent. I highly recomend this restaurant. Michael is one of the best general managers in the state of Texas, and Alberto and Vivian Lombardi are wonderful restauranteur owners.
