The food was excellent and my sister is picky but ate every bite of your food. A spicy pasta with shrimp and sauce. My food was a really great Denver Omelet. Our waitress was on the job and she was low key but quietly there and we were appreciative of her care and offerings.
I loved the fruit salad for my dessert. Thanks you and good luck. I have always loved your food ever since you opened up . Thank you for not over crowding so we felt safe without our masks and the noise level was in a good range. You run a Classy Bistro!
I love going to O it is always spot on
First time and we will definitely be back!
Love this place! Good is great
We’ve been years ago. Still a favorite when in Pensacola.
Food was exceptional as well as our waiter, Daniel. Looking forward to a return visit for their brunch.
We like doing O’Briens for special days. When we ask people where we should celebrate they say O’Briens. They are very accommodating and the food is delicious. Especially the bread pudding.
Terrific love the remodel
Went to dinner on a Saturday night food was very disappointing from other visits.
Went Sunday morning to brunch birthday, food was equally dissatisfying. Will try again in a few months because many years have been very satisfying
Excellent food and service. We had the oysters Rockefeller, baked stuffed grouper and Mixed Seafood Grill. The salads were fresh and the rolls warm and delicious. Dan was a wonderful server.
Everything was amazing!
We enjoyed our 1st time dining here. Food and service were great. They were very accommodating when changing a dinner reservation.
Great experience and the food was excellent!
Food was presented with a flair and flavor spectacular!!

Nice brunch selection with pleasant, attentive service.
LOVE O’Brien’s Bistro!! Great variety in their menu, food is always delicious, the waiter/waitress staff are all amazing and friendly, and the owners strive to know you and make you feel like family. It is my favorite lunchtime go-to and a Pensacola culinary treasure!
We had a enjoyable family dinner. 5:15 on a Sunday, prior to the big dinner rush. Meal was great and the service was prompt and attentive. Fair value and good food.
Appetizers were delicious had the French onion soup and Parmesan crusted scallops. Split the Sirloin was a tad dissatisfied the meat quality was amazing but flavor was subpar very little seasoning but over all decent.
Nice evening. Good food, and good service
Wonderful steak & absolutely outstanding seafood! Family had the smoked salmon, tuna poke, & flat iron with blue cheese and it was one of the best dining experiences we have ever had when visiting Pensacola. Hats off to the chef and servers for the wonderful experience!
As always, excellent service and food!
Excellent restaurant! The food is always delicious and the service is very attentive.
We love this place ! Always a great date night ! Highly recommend. Great service, great food, amazing desserts.
Most of the food, soups and 1 entree very flavorful. The other diner found her grouper over sauced and the sauce bland. Generous portions. Great service and ambiance. Noise level accommodated quiet conversation
As always, awesome food, service and atmosphere. A hidden GEM!
Four of us celebrated Mother's Day Brunch. Omelet's and Benedict's were tasty-coffee was excellent. Service was very attentive. Excellent choice for a very popular Day.
They’ve added a bar! This makes a huge impact on our future dinning options. Really had a great evening.
Their Sunday afternoon brunch was great! We had an array of different food (crab cakes, cheeseburger, omelet) and all were outstanding.
Another great meal. As always, the food was excellent as was the service.
Food was delicious and service was outstanding. Daniel made the experience with great wine pairing and flavor suggestions.
Another great meal, as always, great food, great service!
Food is always excellent, well prepared, diverse and creative. Ambiance is good and it is quiet enough for good conversation. Service is also very good and wait staff appears to be well trained.
I had the Jerk Mahi Mahi with Coconut Risotto...scrumptious! My date had the Stuffed Grouper and enjoyed every bite!
I will say this if u are a long time fan of O"Briens you may be disappointed in the bread pudding as I was..New owner, New recipe.
Food was delicious! Service was great! Can't wait to go back again and try something else, want to try each of the dishes, so far, all are excellent!
