    Food was of very high quality with the perfect balance of flavor and spice. Service was attentive. Ordered from both menu and high tea and both were good. A bit pricey

    Another excellent meal at Bistro Menil. Tried the shrimp cocktail for the first time. Unique take on the classic and the best in town.

    Excellent service, quiet corner spot and a delicious meal. We had the veggie bowl, crab cakes and shared the gluten free lemon tart. It was a perfect day.

    Tons of excellent gluten free options. Potatoes au gratin was a little bland but perfectly cooked. Short rib was tangy and delicious.
