    What a great experience! The food and ambiance was outstanding and the service was friendly, informative, and attentive. The owner comes and greets every single table, which is a remarkably kind gesture and truly makes you feel special and appreciated. We came to Bistro on the Falls for our anniversary and we are so happy we did (even received a complimentary and delicious dessert!!) Such a great place with everything you need for a wonderful time… delicious and decadent food, elegant drinks, and hospitality at its finest! Thank you Bistro on the Falls!

    Went on Father’s Day. Never reflected it was buffet. Getting past that, was told no liquor license on Sunday. Again, no information reflecting that. Service was not great. Servers standing in the opening of the door chatting. Our server paid limited attention to us. The salmon that was supposed to be chilled was warm. However, the owner was a delight. Made his rounds to each table. The rest of the spread was very good. It would have been nice to know that it was buffet only and the cost up front.

    Positive: Kiksey was an awesome waitress today! We have had her services before during a few visits for dinner so we are aware of her high quality. Desserts were amazing. Dinner at this establishment is high-quality and very nice...brunch, not the same. Cons: For a $45/pp brunch - to sit outside in the sun with no umbrellas over the tables for shade is not the kind of service I would expect. We arrived, were greeted by the owner himself and requested an inside table. We were told by the owner that this request was possible and that he was just waiting for the table to be cleared. The restaurant is very small and with folks milling around for the buffet we waited directly outside the front door (which was opened). We saw folks finish eating and leave the restaurant so we knew inside tables were available. Many, many servers and the manager saw us standing outside (in the sun) yet no one asked why we were waiting. And they were not busy. After 20 minutes I checked back in and the owner says 'nice to see you again.' Dumbfounded by his response as he spoke to me 20 minutes earlier I said you were going to seat us inside, I see tables are available. He did not remember no recalled the conversation. I expect much better service from a high-end brunch than that response and lack of remembering that he checked us in early. The manager was just as clueless. The food was okay (nothing fancy) and there was no mention to us about the 'made-to-order omelettes' that were noted on the website. Chaffing dishes were not overly full of food and some were empty, which took time to fill. For the cost, I expected so much more in the way of food and service at the prices we were paying. It should have been like a fancy dinner out for the price! I really had hoped they would provide a great brunch, as they do dinner, but I don't think that is possible for this establishment.

    Another fabulous experience - great food and service. We ate outside - all lovely. The only negative, I understand beyond the restaurant's control, was the loud music coming from the restaurant next door.

    Service was world class. The menu was creative and interesting. We had shrimp and scallops, and blackened swordfish, both on delicious risotto. Key lime cheesecake was to die for. We dined outside in a setting as elegant as inside.

    This was my second trip here. I wanted to try their regular menu with my husband after going a couple days earlier by myself for their lovely Sunday brunch (which I also recommend). We went at 4pm (on a Tuesday) when they opened. After my experience Sunday I thought it best to make a reservation just in case, but it was nice and quiet at that time. Our waiter was very professional and nice. Although service was on the slower side, it is expected at this type of restaurant and we didn't mind the relaxed pace. I only say this incase you are looking for a faster dinner or need to catch movie or something. Our food was beyond beautifully presented and delicious! And be ready to enjoy that homemade honey butter with your bread! Overall, very good and we will be back.

    The food is savory and decadent! The first bite was as pleasurable as the first. I had the habanero mango martini from the bar! I was excited by the spice and soothed by the fruity sweetness. There are land and sea entrees. I had scallops that were cooked to perfection as they were smooth, buttery and melted in my mouth. Nestled in this quaint cottage are intimate dining rooms appropriate for a special occasion, business dinner, romantic evening, or a relaxing meal. All the staff from the host, Debbie our waitress, mixologist and executive chef Fadul were so welcoming and personable. We felt well cared for. The service is attentive and seamless, second to none. I’ve been twice to this new establishment and will come back every time I’m in town!
