    Excellent meal! We enjoyed the Blackened Walleye and the Pasta O w/Blackened Shrimp were both delicious. I really liked that the food temperature was hot when it was brought to the table.

    This place does not get enough credit locally. The black tie salmon is phenomenal and the filet and shrimp is excellent as well. All of the sides, potatoes and veggies are also delicious. Most of the bottles of wine are almost half price of some of the “fancier” places in the QC area. This is an excellent place to enjoy a wonderful meal quickly in a quiet, inviting environment.

    Bix Bistro in the historic Blackhawk Hotel was a great surprise! Not many places open for dinner on a Sunday, but Bix was, and the food was great. We started out with the crab cake appetizer, and for dinner, the Blackened Walleye Fresca and the Pasta New "O." All were delicious. The atmosphere is elegant and extremely laid back. We will definitely visit again on our next trip to Davenport!

    We were in Davenport on a road trip back home to Denver, this was our second time in the hotel and restaurant. Chastity made it another great experience after a long day driving. She was a great host; very friendly, knowledgeable of the menu options and great with our young kids. We thank her so much and will be back next year.

    The location of this restaurant is very promising. Inside a boutique hotel, we were hoping for an outstanding experience. Drinks were excellent and craft made. Appetizer of crab stack was missing avocado, but the homemade won tons were exceptional. However it was a little downhill from there. Steak came with a very thick “crust” of salty Asiago and horseradish that I had to scrape off. I had asked for this “crust” expecting something more subtle. Husband’s meal of walleye was over cooked and served with cold risotto and under seasoned veggies. The server was very nice but a bit under trained. Maybe an off night?

    They have a fairly small menu, and it looked pretty conventional. Very well-executed, however; everything we had was quite good. Nice, well-curated wine list. Like everywhere, they're understaffed, and it shows, but our server put in tremendous effort. I would definitely return

    I honestly don’t see how this restaurant has such good reviews. The food was mediocre at best. We were a party of 6 and 2 of the pasta dishes came out cold, and I mean COLD. They took them back and put them in a microwave. What nice restaurant does that?! The cocktails were cloyingly sweet. In all, it was not worth it whatsoever and I cannot, in good conscience, recommend this place to anyone. It is WAY too expensive for what you get. I would compare it to the food quality you get at an Applebees but at 3x the price.

    Were hoping for a romantic dinner to celebrate our anniversary. The menu we viewed on-line when making our reservation was not the loose paper menu we were given. There were fewer choices. Our server had 10 tables and it took 25 minutes to place our order. Then 15 minutes later we had our wine, appetizer, salad and entree nearly at once. We were surrounded by a couple of noisy tables with young children. The pace was slow and then hurried and it was difficult to enjoy our conversation or food. Seemed like they were shot-staffed. Food was good. We especially enjoyed the calamari. Overall we were very disappointed with this dining experience.

    Valentines Day. We were able to be seated earlier than reservations and it wasn’t very full but the wait stuff, while pleasant, was very harried. Steak was undercooked and wife’s seafood wasn’t seasoned very well. Dressing on salad wasn’t very good. $150 for for Valentines special was very overpriced for what was delivered. Will likely try on an off night with regular menu but definitely wouldn’t recommend during a busy time.

    We had an 8:15pm reservation for the Saturday night before Valentines Day. Needless to say, it was super busy. I understand there is a huge staffing shortage. I can only assume this is why our poor server was working a 10 table section. He did his very best, kept a positive attitude and let us know the progress of our order while clearly being overwhelmed. Food was slow to come out but we didn't mind. We ordered the Valentines menu which came with several courses. Most of the food was good but my steak was very fatty. They brought me 2 NY strips and neither was edible. We still paid for the steaks but they comped our drinks which was just fine. I think dining here on a less busy, well staffed evening would be a much better experience.

    We went to Bix Bistro because of its close proximity to the theater in town. On performance nights, they have a limited menu. Between steaks, salmon and a vegetarian option to which I added shrimp, the choice were all good. The service was attentive and responsive. The bar made me a wonderful martini. The experience was great

    So we were looking for gluten free dining in the quad city area and this came up and looked nice. We sat and the waitress was unfamiliar with gluten free (really???) had to ask and the whole process was really slow. Another table came in ordered received their food and departed before we even got out food! The disappointment was that after waiting over an hour for food it want even that good... Steak was tough and my dish just tasted like sour cream not pleasant. And to top it off this was a $100 meal for three one of which was a child with a child's meal and no alcohol! Waste of time and money.

    My husband went to Bix Bistro (Hotel Blackhawk) and had a fabulous time. The hotel and restaurant has been restored and renovated recently and we ended up asking for a tour of the hotel. Our server, Katie, was one of the best servers we've ever had. She talked about the various chefs and items that were new to the menu and knew the ingredients and history of each listing, we asked about. They were out of the wine, we initially requested; but, they offered plenty of other great wines from their list. The food was much better than expected. The atmosphere was quiet; which we prefer. Most guests were dressed up; but, don't let that stop you . . . we saw one gentleman in denim.

    My son has attended college in the area for the last four years and I typically don't expect local restaurants to match up to our hometown of Chicago. This time I was pleasantly surprised. The bistro is in the Blackhawk Hotel and it is gorgeous. It could compete with some of Chicago's best! The service was also impeccable. Our waiter was pleasant, knowledgeable and provided us with some of the history of the menu (a pork chop dish named after President Obama). If you're like me and celebrating a special occasion, consider dining here.

    Got a lot of recommendations to go here. Unfortunately, they didn't appropriately staff for the expected crowd before a show at the Adler. It took almost 20 minutes to get our drinks delivered. We ordered our meals at the same time- thank goodness (our neighbors finally left when their dinners hadn't arrived in time for them to eat and walk next door.) My meal was incorrect and I had to explain to the person who delivered it why it was wrong (I'm vegetarian- I know I didn't order shrimp.) The waitress didn't make it back around so we could order wine until our meals were almost done. We ordered wine anyway and they were served in glasses that had not even been dried off. Bottom line. It's probably a decent restaurant if there is no show at the Adler, but otherwise don't expect the restaurant to be properly staffed. You'll be paying premiere prices for decent food with Applebee's service and a lousy experience.

    Unfortunate for restaurant, as the food and cocktails were good, but the service was not acceptable (slow/uninterested staff), and the background music and front lobby activities were disruptive to diners. We will stay again at the Blackhawk Hotel, but probably not dine at the Bix.

    We ate at Bix Bistro before going to an Adler Theater event and the service was horrible. We were so disappointed, because we eat here often and the service has always been impeccable. Our server was frazzled from the moment we sat down and became even more so throughout dinner service. We never had our water refilled, nor did we get the standard bread offering. When we said we hadn't received out bread yet and would like some, our server told us she would get some and didn't come back for thirty minutes. We never did get any bread, while every table around us received their's. Our service was unfortunate because our food was fantastic.

    I was looking for a romantic dinning experience for our 20th anniversary and found it at the Bix Bistro. The service was excellent. Our server , Vicki, was very personable and tentative. She made the experience extremely pleasurable. The food was exquisite. Some of the finest dinning in the QCA! Our server even brought us a surprise for desert and the flavors were with out a doubt amazing. Our server said it very well "it's like a party in your mouth." Indeed!
