    Terrible experience. It took awhile for anyone to even acknowledge us & I can count on one hand how many times we were checked on. The waiter wasn’t very professional and would walk past us multiple times without checking on us. For being considered an “upscale” restaurant, the service did not match the price at all. Was never asked if we liked the food or drinks, drinks were horrible, and the waiter tried to charge us for a drink we had sent back. 1/10 stars. Would not recommend.

    B on the B remains one of the best restaurants in the area. Chefs put a great deal of thought into the menu. Many of the offerings are a little heavy, more fried, more bland than necessary. But there are also lighter, more engaging offerings on the specials list and on the main fare. You can pick the tomatoes out of the "Caesar" salad, for example. The wine list is quite good, a little shorter than before, and more likely to have everything in stock. All in all, a keeper.

    We enjoyed spending our anniversary with you. It was such a special touch to receive a card from you signed by many of the staff! We ordered the bread service with fresh churned butter. The bread was crispy on the outside and perfect inside! The butter was delightful! We ordered the steak medallions with frites - it melted in our mouths! The only thing we were extremely disappointed in was the water. Seems silly, right?! It was city water and we could not drink it. We expected a high end restaurant of this caliber to offer bottled water or at the very least to filter it. But the food was spectacular. Our compliments to the chef!

    Great evening out - excellent food and drinks in an environment that was comfortable and not too loud - easy to converse. Attentive service and especially great dessert!

    We are huge Bistro fans and again greatly enjoyed the hot honey cauliflower, paparadelle, and filet medallions. Our only suggestion is that the dessert menu doesn’t quite match up with the quality of the regular menu.

    Great service, the blackened cat fish was out of this world. Tasty, presented perfectly and the Mango salsa was knock out. My wife had the grilled striped bass on bed of root puree vegetables. Perfect. Ice tea was filled regularly and the bread service was spot on.
