We were seated by the bathrooms and we were shoved and bumped by employees and customers. We moved tables. We waited over an hour to get our appetizers. The man held our bottle of wine captive. Overall would not go back.

After our favorite French place shut down, we've been trying to find a new place that would fill the void. Bistronomic definitely went above and beyond our expectations in terms of food and service. I can't wait to come back and enjoy another date night here!

We have gone every year for the past 4 years to Bistronomic for Thanksgiving Dinner. We are always so warmly welcomed and the choices for those of us who don’t care for traditional turkey dinner are great. As a family run restaurant, there is an intimate family atmosphere but with sophisticated food options. Sure we will go again next year!

Pros: Amazing and just the right amount of friendly front of house, ambience and location. The food was good and beautifully presented but not quite good enough for the price point.
Cons: The service was just OK and about 5-10 minutes off (late) per course. My table was a bit more than too close to a main walkway for the staff which is OK until they knock your arm in passing.
Overall a good dining experience but not necessarily for a special occasion.

Excellent food and service. My only criticism is that I felt like a sardine as tables are packed very tight together making conversation difficult. Perhaps a few less tables would serve this fine establishment better. My wife and I had to get up from our meal to allow the diners next to us to leave. Just too tight! Other than that, a nice experience.

Bistronomic is tres magnifique!

I always leave Bistronomic full and very happy. Not only is the food delicious but the meal presentations are almost artful, the service is non intrusive but caring and very accommodating and the noise level is perfect for intimate conversations.

I have never been disappointed with the food at Bistronomic. Quality ingredients and excellent preparation of meals every single time I've ever visited. Great wine list.

Bravo Bistronomic. Keep up the great work.

This was embarrassing. I took two business associates to Bistronomic for lunch. We all ordered and my two guests received a dish that was barely the size of an appetizer. Service was very slow and inconsistent and the portion sizes were incredibly small. I felt terrible knowing that they were leaving the restaurant still hungry. My nicoise salad was tasty, but also very small and for some reason, they served the arugula in a separate bowl... It was truly uncomfortable and I won't be going back.

We went on a busy afternoon brunch and the place looked very full with large parties ours included. Service wasn’t timely by any means but we weren’t in any rush and were enjoying the bottomless mimosas. Eventually food came out but only 4 of the 7 party members got their food. Food runner was rude and almost aggressively auctioned off the food and was not delicate when placing the plates down. Eventually our sever told us the kitchen had somehow missed the 3 remaining guests food but they would get it to us as soon as possible. I kid you not everyone finished there food and a party member had to leave before we finally got the missing 3 dishes. Server was nice enough and let us continue to drink as food was not yet out in the 1.5 hours we had already been there but it was surprising such a mishap could happen. They ended up hosting a dessert which was nice but it was a little too little too late for us at that point. I doubt I’ll go back
