It was a delightful place to celebrate our anniversary. Our request for seating was honored. Our server was attentive but not intrusive. We both enjoyed a delicious meal and were treated to a lovely dessert.

Was disappointed that we got sent upstairs for Fathers Day brunch. Instead of inside.
It is not a family crowd upstairs.

Bistro 31 is a spot we visit for lunch at least once a month, and generally more often. We have been there many times since they opened in Highland Park. The wait staff is one of the best, the food is imaginative, fresh, and filling. Michael is the perfect host and he knows most guests by name. While the clientele is made up of "the ladies who dine" because of its location in the trendy part of town, there are always a few gentlemen dominate tables scattered about. The daily specials are always worth trying and desert is the crowning part of the meal.

When we are on Dallas, we head to Bistro 31. The good is excellent as is the ambience. We love Evan who manages this restaurant and is so attentive and interesting. He remembers us and the wine we like even though we are only in Dallas sporadically. Our server on our most recent visit was a Mario who is a dead ringer for Antonio Bandares (according to him). What a great place and great team! We will be back several times over the next few weeks that we are in Dallas.

As always, Bistro 31 did not disappoint. The lamb meatball appetizer was delightful. The cocktails are hearty and the wine list has many very good choices by the glass. I can't wait to go back.

It stays just microscopically above perfect, and just keeps getting even better each time we dine. The wait staff is dedicated to the diners and their enjoyment. Just GO THERE...you will not be disappointed!! Ran and Jan.

The best place in HP for delicious food and the most attentive servers anywhere! We always enjoy their Dover Sole, and the Manager, Michael is the most hospitable of all
Restaurants! How lucky that they have him! It’s like being at the “Three Seasons”...... everything he does is “His Pleasure”.....a wonderful experience anytime of the day!!!

Bistro 31 is a bright, airy but small restaurant in the heart of Highland Park Village. The menu offers many healthy and delicious choices, and the wine list is one of the best in town, with over 20 by-the-glass options.

Bistro 31 has the trifecta of what I look for in a restaurant: superb food, service, and ambiance. That is why whenever we do a Girls Lunch, Bistro 31 is my first and only choice for dining!

Tessa was our waitress and she was INCREDIBLE! I would recommend requesting her because she was attentive, personable, and really made our dinner special.
The food was delicious and brought out in a timely manner.

Great location, Great atmosphere, Great service! Food was very bland. I ordered the Caesar Salad and there was hardly any dressing...tasted mostly like lettuce, however, the fried anchovies on the salad were different but very good and tasty. I also ordered the wild mushroom tagliolini and had to send it back because it tasted like boiled noodles with mushrooms - no seasoning. For my meal, seasoning was absent or at best, very underdone. They re-made my pasta a second time and it was better. I will come back and hope the food is better the next time, as the atmosphere, cocktails and service are top notch.

It's been a while since I've been to Bistro 31 but it hasn't missed a beat. Still very pleasant in every respect. What was even better was that Signore Lombardi came by our table to say hello.

Both the food and the drinks were SO good! Service was great. The handcut pappardelle with short rib ragu and vegetables, Jonah crab cakes, Nutella tiramisu, and S’mores orange chocolate mousse are TO DIE FOR. I’ve still being thinking about it two days later. I left feeling delightly full, appreciated, and with a new favorite place I will keep going back to! So delicious. Good job, Bistro 31!
