    Great food and great service by Liam. The gnocchi never disappoint as an appetizer with a choice of 3 for the best experience. The sea bass is always a top choice (we shared) and also had seafood risotto. So much food that’s was all done perfectly but too perfectly to leave room for dessert.

    Was disappointed in the food after this 1st time visit. Felt it was very overpriced. The shrimp appetizer was listed as "jumbo" and was anything but. Paid $16 for an appetizer that was clearly overpriced. The gnocchi are their specialty, but the baked gnocchi was bland at best. The service was outstanding but we will not be returning anytime soon. Not sure what the fuss is about, Fieni's in Voorhees is much better regarding food and cost.

    Food was excellent. Service outstanding. Our entrees were a little delayed…nothing we were concerned about but our waitress was very apologetic and manager brought us complimentary champagne and apologized. That’s why people keep going back!

    The food was very good. Our server seemed to be having some problems--we waited too long a time to be asked about coffee/dessert. Also, we ordered the wedge salad which was described in the menu, but "onions" wasn't included in the description, and none of us are onion fans. Our entrees were very good.

    Food was outstanding as usual. The waiterBlaine was very attentive and professional. My only complaint was the cost of the special which was seafood fra diavolo at $49 seemed too high especially since it did not have any lump crabmeat.

    We love Bistro! The food is always excellent, specials are fresh and delicious, it’s close by so we can walk right up to the restaurant. Everyone is always very friendly and the staff know us since we go so often. Catering is also top notch- had my baby shower catered 2 weeks ago. Excellent, everyone enjoyed everything!

    I have always loved Bistro di Marino but since I was last there last year it seems as though their gnocchi has changed. It is now a little bit more dense and different in texture so it’s not quite the special experience that it used to be. Everything was still delicious, the service was great, the prices were pretty good for today’s economy. I will definitely be returning but I am just a little sad that the gnocchi doesn’t taste the same as it used to. I’m hoping it’s a fluke but my mom said the same thing when she went a few weeks ago.

    I went there for the fourth time to celebrate the graduation of my daughter and her boyfriend. We hoped to be seated on the outdoor patio but you can't reserve it , since we were going very late (8:45) we thought we had a chance. Luckily, they called and offered a choice of either inside or outside the day of our reservation and we got a great table on the charming patio! Despite one disappointment on our appetizers (they ran out of bread for bruschetta) everyone enjoyed the meal and loved being outside on a beautiful evening.

    Our pear salad was excellent. I had chicken Marsala and my wife had tortellini with sausage and shrimp. Both were great. We sat outside which was nice, however, the chairs were very uncomfortable. Service was prompt and cordial. Will return.

    I went out with a friend for a nice dinner. I remembered coming prior to Covid and always loving the food. Not so much now. It was literally gnocchi with red sauce. Someone cut up my sausage. It was a little strange to see mini chunks of pasta. We were not offered any beverages during service. We had to ask twice just to get water. I miss the rolls that used to come with dinner. Sorry but I didn’t get the wow factor. At all. We drove 50 minutes for this occasion. We waited 50 mins for our food. We finished in 20 mins. We had to wait a long time to get the check. My friend had the short rib gnocchi. She said it was good but didn’t have the caramelized onions. Mine didn’t either. The waitress told us it’s because they finely chop up Spanish onions. That’s the strangest answer I’ve ever heard. The waitress said Spanish onions disappear in the dish. The last I checked it’s an Italian dish with caramelized onions. The waiter guy next to us to us the sauce comes pre made. Overall I’m not so sure we will be back. I used to go 4-5x a year prior to Covid. I was disappointed after building up to my friend how great its always been. Our table was neglected for proper service. My friend had to eat her meal without a drink. We weren’t offered any beverages just the water that was on the table in two different sized glasses. The patio setting is so pretty. Save your money and go elsewhere. It appears the pandemic has taken a toll and the costs were increased significantly to get less.

    Since it was raining we didn’t get to eat outside, which we really like to do in the courtyard. But it was very comfortable inside and we enjoyed our evening. Our waiter had several tables but he did an excellent job taking care of everybody and checking in often. Food was very good and we look forward to dining there again in near future

    This is my third chance I gave bistro and they’ve officially just confirmed that they’ve went down hill. They always forget my salad anymore and bring it out with the meal that they also forget. My order was wrong. They never refill drinks or clear the table so you eat around stacked up plates. Will go to Marlton moving forward. We tried!

    Not the same experience as we have had in the past. Antipasto meats did not appear fresh and pieces of cheese were extremely small. White clam sauce came out with a red tinge and was passed off as “that’s how the white sauce comes.’ Tortellini was ok but probably a matter of taste that the blackened shrimp didn’t seem to pair well with the cream sauce. The manager was friendly and server nice. Just not our best meal here and we have been here often.

    Love the outdoor patio at Bistro. It’s a shame that they are not keeping up with the maintenance of the tables. They were peeling and looked ragged. Plus the menus were also old and falling apart. If this was our first visit we would not have wanted to stay for dinner. Luckily we know how good the food is and we were not disappointed. Every dish was excellent. Our waiter Eddie was great! Friendly and helpful. After our last two visits to the Marlton Bistro we won’t go back. The food always comes out Luke warm or cold. Here at Collingswood Bistro the food is hot. Highly recommended.

    We usually love this restaurant, but last night the service was slow . They brought 2 dinners, but by the time they brought the other 2, the first were cold. The waiter spilled coffee on my husband. We asked for cannolis, but by the time they brought them, we had finished our coffee so we took them to go. My salmon was excellent, though.

    Always have good dinners here. Food is always cooked well. Service is excellent. The only negative I could say is changing to bread from the rolls . We always said Bistro had the best rolls and we were looking forward to them. The bread got hard fast and was not very good. This was a disappointment. .

    Hostess completely ignored us for 10 mins. Then we finally get seated and wait another 15 mins before we even get a glass of water. The waiter would disappear for 15-20 minutes at a time. We had to ask the waiter for things multiple times because he kept forgetting. Also had to go and look for him to pay our check because he wasn’t coming back to our table. Over 2 hours for 2 people to have dinner. Second time I was there and the second time we had bad service. The food was really good but unfortunately I will not be going back because of service.
