Owner Alberto Lombardi and staff were gracious as ever. Risotto, carbonara style with scallops, was heavenly. We always have a wonderful time. And, it is one of few restaurants where the noise level is low.

Couple of things.
1. Made the reservation for 9:30 a.m. because Open Table said there was either 9:30 available or the next was open at 2:30 pm. Well, the place was 30% full even when we left at 10:45. Would have preferred to go a a later “brunch” hour.
2. If you’re in the main room with the hire ceilings the noise is quite manageable. We were seated in the text area which is a lot noisier. I’d recommend if you are going to ask for a table in the main section. It’s a whole different (read “nicer”) ambiance.

That said - good was excellent as always and the wait staff was as well. Great place.

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. Michael is one of the best restaurant managers in Texas. I highly recomend this restaurant.

Enjoyed a lovely afternoon with great food , lovely atmosphere and excellent service. My only critique is that the escargot was surprisingly tough/chewy. Seafood and mushroom risotto fantastic! Thank you to the team that made my birthday special!

The burrata salad was wonderful and the young man who was our "wait-person" was friendly and went out of his way to offer good service. The "people watching" is definitely "worth the price of admission".

I honestly cant say enough about the service here! Exceptional in every single detail, and i must say i truly expected it to be uptight and pretentious and it was exactly the opposite. The setting would make you think that you need to be in the Texas billions but the manager and staff treat everyone as if they are a Texas billionaire. Our new friend and server Stephen made us feel at home, welcomed and like a regular! I dont recall ever having this type of service anywhere. Oh the food is just as excellent!

Food was good but overpriced. Not a very good Caesar Salad. Dover sole was great. Server called 80ish Asian guest by his first name. Not acceptable, in fact considered rude, within his culture.

Because of their friendliness, excellent service, attention to detail, and delectable food, Bistro 31 has become our favorite "go-to" restaurant for Sunday brunch. We are always made to feel special by the extra effort that is provided by their superb staff. We shall return!

Our server was outstanding. She was helpful, knowledgeable, professional and friendly. We were seated right next to the table that held the server's utensils, water pitchers, etc. and several times I had to ask them if I was in the way. There were five of us and two ordered the special fish of the day - one said hers was fishy tasting, but didn't want to complain. The other said hers was just fine. We were celebrating two birthdays and our server brought two delicious desserts for us to share - gratis. A very nice touch! Thank you!

I took my friend to lunch at Bistro 31 for her birthday. We both had the beet salad and the salmon. the food was outstanding, the service attentive. When I made the reservation, I indicated it was my friend’s birthday. The waiter brought my friend a fabulous chocolate mousse topped with meringue and a rocket candle!!

Excellent table service. We ended up ordering the specials that night, and they were very very good. Pasta, shrimp an asparagus in my dish were all perfectly cooked. Rissoto was done well, very good flavor but needed a touch of salt.

There is an impressive selection of wine, with some really nice options, but the price points are high.
