First time for brunch. Won't be the last.
Very nice and helpful server. Good food.
Did have a fairly noisy table in the room - otherwise would have been more relaxing.
You will never get a bad meal at O'Briens Bistro. It is the perfect "neighborhood" restaurant that always delivers a high quality dining experience.
Went for Sunday Brunch and beat the crowd. What a great experience, I would rave on our waitress but I cannot remember her name. We shall return!
Food was excellent as always, service was second to none! This place consistently delivers on food and service!
Great food, service and price!
Outstanding as always!
Love this little Bistro! The food is excellent…black and bleu ceaser is my favorite, but everything I’ve had is great! Service is always spot on, and menu is very diverse…. A true Bistro.
It’s our favorite for Sunday Brunch too!!
Food was great service was just ok booth was a little small
Food was delicious and service was great. So glad we found this place. Can’t wait to go back!!!!!
Overall, extremely disappointed. I took my boyfriend here to have a nice and romantic dinner to celebrate a recent job promotion and the service was extremely slow, despite being one of the only two parties in the restaurant. The music was loud and not very fitting for the atmosphere as a lot of rock was playing. The food took forever and came out to be a let down. The scallops were smaller than the size of quarters and over cooked (and you only get like 5). The steak wasn’t a whole steak, but a few strips of flavorless meat. I’ve had better steaks from Texas Roadhouse and paid half the price. I spent over $100 on the evening and only left with the feeling of wasted time and money.
I enjoyed the service and good was delicious. We get to talk as noise was minimal. Server checked with us as much as needed and not multiple times and we liked that. 5star.m coming back.
Have always enjoyed anything I have chosen here. Save room for dessert :)
My best friend and I love to meet here for lunch to catch up.
One of our favorite dining places. Consistently good food and service. Recent expansion and updates have only made it better.
Quiet with a varied menu. Wine and cocktails. Good service.
We had brunch 29 August; we will be back. Everything was great.
Everyone enjoyed their lunch selections. Service was a little slow, but I think that’s a problem every restaurant is experiencing currently.
Excellent service. Great food at a reasonable price.
It was excellent!!! Perfect service and perfect food!!! Definitely recommend!!!
We heard about O’Briens from family who eat there when they are in Pensacola. We tried it and loved it. Food was outstanding and the service was wonderful. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and made several recommendations. The owner stopped by the table and chatted. This will be a regular spot now.
This was such a nice experience. The food *french kiss* delicious. Every single thing that came out was cooked to perfection.
We have been going to OBrien’s Bistro for 29 years. We love the atmosphere, the staff, and the food! It’s one of our favorite date places!
Celebrating senior year for my son. Food was hot, delicious and served with a smile. We had a great time! Go hungry!!!
I think it’s a nice little place just the appetizer portions were small. And the meal was bland.
The food and service is always great. A great place to have lunch or dinner and I enjoy their new bar!
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 food. Great price. Great service.
Great experience and the food was excellent!
