I made a reservation through Open Table but when we got to the restaurant they did not have the reservation and said they do not use Open Table any longer. So, do not use this service to make a reservation at Bistro 33!

We had an eight pm reservation and were seated promptly upon arrival. We were seated outside near the front entrance. Weather was perfect and they had live music which was loud enough to hear and enjoy, but we were still able to talk comfortably at the table. The tomato soup is a must-probably the best I have had, and the salmon dinner was very good. It came with rice, which had cilantro and other spices,very tasty, and broccolini which as also very good. Other standouts at the table...the Pikes Market panini and the Banh-Mi Style sandwich. Long Island ice tea was also very good. Will definitely be back again.

The outdoor seating area at Bistro 33 is excellent for lunch or dinner when weather permits. The indoor ambience is a little dark and dated for my taste. Service is good. The food is good and reasonably priced. Bistro is a solid choice.

The patio here is so lovely, probably the best in Davis, which is why it is so particularly disappointing that the food is so terrible. I ordered a simple salad and it was barely edible - too much dressing, ingredients not fresh, and, the worst part: there was a black hair on it. Revolting. The service was also mediocre: the waiter was fond of juvenile tag lines like "Is everything delicious over here?" I have been here before and had better food, so perhaps the chef was just having a bad day, but this salad cost $10 and it was horrible. I wish Davis would finally have some adult dining options, with consistently good food and service, but I've lived here for 5 years and am still looking. In the meantime, avoid Bistro 33.

Dirty cloth napkins, chicken breast on the burger was small-hidden in a large bun, small amount of fries cooked in old oil. I was disappointed to say the least. Happy to see the college have lots of money to pay for food like that.

I love Bistro 33 and eat there regularly. It was my friend's birthday - We sat on the patio and it was lovely evening! Love the new furniture around the fire pit.
We had a great server (sorry! forgot her name but not her good service).
She brought the BD girl a lovely birthday dessert that we shared.
I love your Chop Chop Salad!

Bistro 33 used to be my daughter and my favorite lunch spot, great food and service. This time it was only average with the menu change and price increase making it much less desirable. We'll be finding a new spot...

Nice ambiance. Very attentive service. Let us hang while the 3rd couple arrived aboutv45 minutes late. Only thing lacking was food quality. Meatball appetizers seemed to have spiciness to disguise dull flavor. Same for tagliatelle bolognese. Sweet potato fries a hit. Lobster ravioli with scampi had no trace of scampi. Dish was sweet when a savory red sauce with garlic and basil would have been better.

My husband and I live 1/5 hours from Davis so when we go to an event at the Mondavi Center we always have to eat first someplace in Davis. Bistro 33 is our hands down choice for our pre-event meal. And this time we returned after the show for dessert and coffee to fortify us for the late night drive home.

The food is consistently excellent. My husband's favorite is the fish & chips. The wait staff is very accomodating when we tell them we're on a tight time schedule and have to make it over to the Mondavi (only 5 or so minutes away).

The restaurant's noise level is "energetic" especially late at night but again there are quieter places towards the back of the restaurant and all you have to do is ask.

A great place to eat!

We enjoyed dinner with out of town friends. There was something on the menu that met everyone's needs. The service was good, it was quiet enough that we could talk easily and we were not rushed. I had the crab cakes and a side salad. The salad was excellent. The presentation of the crab cakes was excellent with two sauces covering the plate. However, one of the sauces with cayenne was a little spicier than I would have liked. I thought the sauce overwhelmed the crab cakes. I used very little of that sauce and more of the tomato sauce.

I would definitely come back here. I would enjoy sitting outside by the firepit or on the patio having a glass of wine before dinner next time.

Caught in a spectacular downpour en route from SF, we were a hour late for our reserved table - we called, they responded kindly and held our table. And the place was packed! Nice, warm ambience in a large space with a hopping bar. We had a time crunch (tickets for a show), and informed them. The service was smooth, smiling, and super-efficient & got us back on the road in perfect time. We had cocktails (marvelous) and a couple of the best panini I have ever savored - crunchy, delicious, fresh ingredients, accompanied by sweet potato tots. Nice touch. I recommend highly and will go back.

The hostess seated us promptly but was too busy chatting up the bar patrons to let the waiter know he had a new table. Had to wave @ her to get service. This was after the surly busboy poured us water without even so much as a hello. . The food is fantastic so I know I will return but I feel the staff needs a little customer service education.

My husband and I picked this restaurant out of the blue. We were pleasantly surprised as it was quiet inside with the patio outside playing live music. The tomato soup was delicious. However, the cheesy flat bread was not cut so tearing that apart was really messy! Service was good and the ambiance was really nice.

Bistro 33 in Davis has been one of my favorite "before event" dining spots, but this time I was very disappointed! After ordering, the wait for our meals was extremely long, as a result of the outdoor dining area being over-booked and the place understaffed. Our server was AWOL. This pushed my party up against the clock to get to our evening event on time, My vegetarian lasagna was OK, but somewhat "crusty", and the salad was over-dressed. Prior to this, I've thoroughly enjoyed the food and the place. I'll try a new place next time. Note: parking is always a challenge in downtown Davis.
