    Owner and staff are amazing! But the show stealer is the food. Impeccable masterpiece of cuisine! It was more than dinner but a wonderful memory with fantastic food and service. The owner goes out of his way to make sure you are satisfied.

    Start to finish an excellent experience! The food was absolutely delicious. We ordered between us a starter salad, lobster bisque, salmon and a shrimp/scallop dish and they did not disappoint. Our server, Billy, was attentive but not over-the-top and paced our meal perfectly.

    Food was terrible, menu needs updated online. They were out of the short ribs so I ordered the chicken risotto dish. It was horrible. Server was so extremely rude and patronizing to me. Food is trash , place is outdated just like their plating. Go anywhere else you will be happy.

    Went out for Valentine's day, the date ended up going not too great! First off, parking is not very accessible. Appetizer was the best item all night (Shrimp Tempura), however, needs way less red onion in the coleslaw. Gotta be careful with raw red onions! For the main dishes, they all had the same garnishing as the appetizer. Very odd to have balsamic vinaigrette on every dish I ate. Mashed potatoes were dry and lacked a velvety, creamy texture. Everything, and I mean everything was under seasoned, butter can only take you so far. Steak was cooked wrong twice in a row. Grits were monotonous and lackluster, also way too much on the plate. They prioritize quantity over quality. The hostess was lovely though Really had high expectations for this place. Definitely will not be returning, should have went to Applebees and got the Bourbon Street Chicken and Shrimp!

    We waited 30 minutes past our reservation time for a table, another hour after that for our food, were double-charged on our one cocktail each and then hit up with $4 surcharges for them to pour our vodkas from the bottle into our glasses. Tack on the $15 tax bill and my tab came close to $50 over the amount it should have been. The restaurant was understaffed, service was at a snail's pace and the recent significant price increases to every item on the menu turned our Valentine's Day celebration into sour grapes.

    Cons: Tiny parking lot Reservation time was pushed by 30+ minutes. Side plates on table were dirty when we sat down. Pretty quiet place, so if you are a loud talker, your entire convo will be heard. Very pricy, but great for a night out / special occasion Menu is different online than in restaurant Pros: Kind employees Strong drinks Food was delicious and steak temp was perfect. (Appetizer, crab cake. Mains, salmon and steak. Dessert, cheesecake) Will be back!!

    Against my better judgement we made a reservation for Valentines Day. First time coming here based on the recommendations of others. there are several dishes that are on the online menu that were not on the menu at the time we went, sadly they were specifically 2 things my wife wanted to order. In then end, she ordered the special filet with shrimp $86 and I ordered the regular filet $64. Both came with mashed potatoes that were cold, hard and lumpy....neither of us ate them. My appetizer was the Coquille Saint-Jacques $24 and my wife had the salad, both of those were ok. The table was VERY close to others on both sides so if you want any privacy best select other seats. in the end dinner with tip was $276 and neither of us was satisfied. I can't say we have any desire to go back any time soon, not sure the dinner was worth the cost.

    The service was top notch and the food was very good, but overpriced. The prices put the restaurant as one that might only be visited once every 3-5 years.

    There was a group of five of us that tried the Bistro, most of us for the first time. We dressed up as a girls night out and went. The atmosphere was calm, quiet yet accepting of our laughing. We ordered the deviled eggs, arancini and lobster bisque to start. All were incredible. The eggs were creamy and delicious and the lobster bisque was so smooth and decadent. We all ordered different things from the chicken, to salmon to shrimp and scallops and short ribs. Everyone cleared their plates the food was so good. The portion size was big and we left completely full and satisfied. We went later in the evening and closed the place down. At no time did we feel pressured to leave. The pace for our ordering and all food coming out and then after dinner conversation and checks was perfect. We had time to savor each course and time to talk and visit even after closing. I was so appreciative of the excellence of the service, the food and the environment. We will all be repeat customers.

    Red silk martini and old fashioned to start were so good! Deviled eggs and lobster bisque apps were delicious. My husband loved the ribeye and I really enjoyed the shrimp/scallops. Lovely dinner date and Tony was wonderful! We will be back! Stopped by Gibbs next door afterwards which was fun too!

    Olmsted Falls has very limited dining options. It’s a small place. Thus place is the only fine dining you’re going to find there. That being said, the food is delicious, the atmosphere is great and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. The price is high but if you appreciate fine dining and know what it takes to prepare a scallop, steak or piece of fish properly, you won’t have a problem. Loved it.

    We dined here on Thanksgiving (2023), and our meals were excellent! Service was great. We found out after dinner this was our server's first day, and you would never have known. I marked the noise level as "moderate", but it really is on the lower end of that. ("Quiet" didn't quite fit.) Highly recommended, especially for a holiday or special occasion.

    A beautiful, intimate restaurant with amazing dishes. Scallops and shrimp with lobster grits is a must try. Everything served is top notch. Chef/owner Marcello runs an amazing establishment and visits each table personally to check with visitors. I've been there a few times and will definitely return. Anyone into the food scene needs to give this hidden independent gem a try.

    Four of us dined here a year ago and returned. One year later, same problems. Once the food orders were taken, it took awhile before the waitress exclaimed they were out of two of the four food orders and we had to elect something else. Next, it took an exceptionally long time for the food to arrive. When it did, one of the orders, eggplant bolognese over squash was inedible. The waitress was kind enough to remove it from the bill. They have to some problems to attend to. Most likely will not return.
