    I love this beautiful little gem in a historic building surrounded by beautiful old homes. It is tucked away in and area just south of downtown so it isn’t full of tourists even though it is adjacent to a boutique hotel. It is my go-to for brunch with the girls, but we have also had wonderful dinners here. It is filled with natural light with a stunning antique bar and William Morris wallpaper. I can’t wait until it is warm enough to sit on the outside patio for drinks in the late afternoon!

    The salad, prawns and polenta, goat cheese stuffed chicken was excellent. The cocktails and wine were great. Our waitress “Sug” was very personable but could have been trained better on the menu, the specials and the history of the establishment.

    This was an amazing dining experience. Delicious bites from the apps to entree that had both of us moaning in joy. Located at a quaint corner of Mobile, AL across from the Fort Conde Inn. The Chef Mike is not what you would expect as he is a burly man who plays drummer in a rock band. However, he is blessed with cullinary talents and I hope anyone who reads this will get to partake in his creations. We are foodies to the extreme and rarely give reviews, but had to speak out after this wonderful meal.

    Wonderful spot for a nice dinner, brunch or small group gathering. We spent our aniversary here and the food was superb. I had the salmon and my husband the rib eye. Portions were generous. Beautiful bar. I highly recommend at night or during the day.

    Service was great & I loved the setting. The food was good, but not amazing or unique. (Benedict & omelet were really good, but avocado toast was not. Champagne wasn’t chilled enough.) I will probably try to check out dinner sometime.

    Disappointed. The menu looked phenomenal. Good waitress but the food quality was sub par for such high prices. Cold appetizers, over dressed salad, over cooked filet… Overall ambience also subpar- lighting too bright and the staff started closing the restaurant while we were still eating an hour before close. We were 1 of three tables that dined after 7pm- now we understand why.

    My 2nd visit to Bistro St. Emanuel and both were excellent. Last night was a quiet night with my wife (her 1st time). The ambience was wonderful, the staff kind and responsive, and the food exquisite. Small charcuterie was an appetizer (shared between 2) would've served 3-4. Poisson Mediterranean and seared scallops were bursting with flavor. Didn't receive green beans with the catch but overall can't complain. The Bistro is a hidden gem!

    We loved the Bistro! I feel like we found a hidden treasure! I had the crabcakes with roumelade sauce and the house salad and it was delicious. My husband ordered the burger (it was cooked perfectly) and had to cut it in half to eat it because it was so large. The atmosphere is great but it is small and the ceilings are high so if you have difficulty hearing in a room full of people having individual conversations, just be aware it can be a little loud. The service was very good as well. Luckily, we are staying at the inn so we will be having breakfast here this week!

    Such a lovely place, they’ve got to get the food straight though. Friend ordered a vegetable pasta and it tasted like leftovers. Definitely prepared in bulk hours or days before and reheated. Burger was overcooked. Fries are good here though.

    Cute area and great space. Service was slow and erratic. Food was unfortunately not what it should be. One note to the restaurant: you have great potential. Details like toasting English muffins and bagels will make a definite difference.

    We had reservations at 8:00pm and were not seat until 8:45pm. They only had 3 people working. The restaurant was very under staffed and the food was ok. The salad was missing ingredients and the polenta was hard. This could be a great place if staff and service were better.
