The Point Patio Bar and Bistro is a hot new restaurant featuring American cuisine with a full service, indoor and outdoor bar. The passion to bring a new feel to Fresno came with many trips around the country including Denver, Chicago, Boston, and San Francisco. With their collaborative experiences and a joint vision of bringing the "perfect" point home, the idea for the patio bistro was born. The unique outdoor oasis features fire, water and colored lighting effects. Along with the televisions strategically placed for subtle viewing, The Point sets the mood for an experience like no other. The indoor booth and table seating offers a more intimate dining experience for friends and family. The Point's highly qualified Chefs bring creative flavor and presentation to a diverse menu including tasty Bistro Starters, Gourmet Burgers and Handhelds, savory Mains and House Made desserts. A lighter lunch selection, a happy hour menu and Sunday Brunch is also available.

    Was smooth and prompt. Arrived 10 minutes early and our table was set. We had patio seating and it was warm, intimate, and you wouldn’t know it was raining. The only odd thing was how a small group (4) almost took our table as the waitress began to seat us. Very awkward as they were allowed in without reservations? Otherwise a great evening.

    Service at table: Did their best, not sure if it’s poorly managed or disorganized, but server was doing their best. Service at bar: Rude, unhelpful, could of ruined the night. Food: Very good, 4/5 plates were well received.

    We were able to make same-day reservations - this was a plus. The restaurant was not too crowded when we walked in. I was not impressed with the hostesses - they didn’t seem to care that guests had shown up, and didn’t say much as we were seated. Our waiter, however, was amazing. My husband asked for a glass of wine, and the waiter said he thought they might be out of that selection. He said he would bring a couple options for tasting so my husband could choose. This was very accommodating. While ordering one of the fish dishes, my husband asked for a substitute on one of the side dishes because of an allergy, and the waiter suggested a couple of different sides to go with the fish dish as a substitute. We thoroughly appreciated the waiters attentiveness to our table and desire to make our experience a good one.

    We had reservations. We arrived about 20 minutes early. The place was empty but they still made us wait for our reservation time. Thought that was odd. Service was good. Everyone was friendly.T he food was good but not great. On the moderately pricey side, i.e. not outrageous, but can find equal food for less. The atmosphere is so-so. It's not "comfortable", per se. Outside seating is nice. Would I go again? Sure but it wouldn't be my first choice.

    We went for Easter Brunch and we had 4 last minute guests and they were able to accommodate us, an hour later than our original reservation but they didn’t hesitate to make it work for our family. The food was great and we sat outside on the patio...a gorgeous spring morning. We loved it.

    The staff was very friendly but it took too long for them to come check on us out on the patio. Whenever they did come out, they did go all out to try to make our dinner comfortable cause all of the heaters weren’t working but then they just disappeared again. The food was bland. I’ll try it again because the setting is nice. I hope to have a better experience next time. Crossing my fingers. So... in bullet form: - the food is bland -the staff is friendly -the staff means well but they forget to check outside. -management should periodically check on the propane and heaters outside. It is a “Patio bar” after all.

    We booked a reservation on Open Table. When we arrived at the restaurant we were told that they forgot to look at the Open Table reservations and had no room for us on the patio. When we asked them about a table inside we were told that they had a waitlist going so it would be a while. They absolutely do not care about their customers or providing good service.

    Very accommodating for our group, with two tables pushed together. It was a little noisy, but not bad, and the appetizers for happy hour were superb! Nice selection of craft cocktails too.

    First time at The Point. Chose seasonal menu items. We started with the brussels sprouts appetizer which was delicious. My son had the shrimp tacos and they were excellent and just the right amount of spice kick. I had the grilled chicken and avocado sandwich with sweet potato fries. Yum, yum. Food a little slow to arrive but we enjoyed the atmosphere and there was a baseball game on the t.v.

    Impressed with food quality and service. Will eat in fantastic patio next visit. The menu is diverse as is the seating. Seems as though they're trying to be all things to all people. Doesn't hurt them though. Fun place, good outdoor ambience, friendly service.

    The food was VERY good---I had steak bites, they were cooked perfectly and a Caesar Salad, one of the better Caesar Salads I've ever had (and I eat 2 or 3 a week); my friend had a house burger served in a lettuce wrap, and it was done just right and very tastey. My only complaint was the wine, a very good red, at least, after it warmed up a little; apparently they chill the reds. Who knew? Oh, and the staff was VERY friendly and helpful, the manager came and sat with us for a few minutes, she was very nice, as was the server. Overall a very nice experience.

    This was our first time to try The Point. The hostess/waitress was very friendly and enjoyable. Limited menu but they have is very good! We had the misfortune of having an obnoxious young lady at the bar that thought everyone needed to hear her conversation, colorful language and all! Once she left we got a feel for the place and it was very nice!

    Went for Sunday brunch.....they stop serving EXACTLY at 12:30. Be aware. We didn't know and were disappointed since we walked in at 12:28. Had a yummy lunch but were in the mood for brunch food. Sigh. Sad they took tacos off the menu. That was our favorite menu item.
