Our first time going. We really enjoyed it and will definitely go again
Food was outstanding. The waiter was good however he rarely checked on us which was rare fo theBistro. At times we were over whelmed with empty plates and one of our friends steak that he ordered which was a special for that evening ordered it to be cooked medium and it came out well done. So he was only able to eat the center.
Other then that food was mouth watering and we had a great time.
Slow slow slow service that night. Otherwise fine
We had a delicious meal! We will definitely be visiting again very soon.
Great! The empanadas were so wonderful.
Always great food and service. Been going to Bistro for many years. Never a bad experience.
We were celebrating a birthday. The food was amazing and our waiter was great! Will be back soon.
The Bistro is our favorite restaurant in the area. We go often because the food is always excellent and the service is great. Everyone is very friendly and the atmosphere is perfect. We sat outside with our friends on a beautiful evening and walked down to Marine Park afterwards.
Consistently good, good friendly service, BYOB always nice
Everything was very good, the only complaint I have is it was too dark inside couldn’t see me friends faces cause of the shadow from the sun outside
Food great , service very friendly and good
I would definitely go again
The food was amazing! Everyone in our party was very pleased. Really enjoyed the Poke Bowl, grilled octopus, rigatoni bolognese, and the ice cream sandwiches! And it’s BYOB!!!
Had a great dinner on Mother’s Day — not a day I typically like to go to a restaurant because it can be so busy and rushed. Not here! We never felt pressured to hurry. Food was terrific and the service was great! I was not aware ahead of time that there would be a special Mother’s Day menu, but there was good variety on the special menu and we all (four) were quite happy.
I pass this restaurant every time I’m driving through Red Bank, NJ & Mother’s Day turned out to be the best opportunity to eat there.
The main dishes are very good but their braised short rib was excellent. I highly recommend this dish.
Their desserts are good too. Creme brûlée feeds up to two people & their chip sandwich is very good.
Staff was helpful & attentive which made the day special for my mom.
There was a bug on the lettuce in my sandwich. Waiter blatantly ignored us when we called him over once or twice. They forgot the spiced pecans in my friend's salad. Would not return based on this experience.
Limited vegetarian option. You can’t get wine by the glass, only the bottle The bread was not good
First time customer at The Bistro with a group of 4 people. Love that its BYOB. Food was very good (two pasta dishes, pizza, sushi) and thought the prices were reasonable. Was very comfortable inside and our waiter and service was outstanding.
Always enjoy our meal here- this is our go to place
This was absolutely terrible. We didn’t even order our meals from the waitress and the runner already brought us out our appetizer. We order an appetizer for a group of 3 and the appetizer only had two pieces. Would have been nice if the waitress said that so we could have ordered more. Completely rushed we had all our food served to us within 20 minutes of being seated. The wait staff doesn’t know the proper etiquette taking dishes while people are still eating. This is unacceptable. The portions were like child sized. Go somewhere else. Don’t waste your money
Food used to be better. Will not return.
The host was rude and unprofessional
The menu here is excellent, and it was hard to make a decision what to order! Everything was delicious, and the server was very attentive. We had tickets to a show at Count Basie, and we were able to make the show on time. This is a BYOB, which is great. The main complaint we had was that the restaurant was very noisy,
A very good local place where you can get food for every one in the family. a good diverse selection of food.
Always a great meal. My hubbie dreams about the calimari salad.
Awesome variety on the menu and they do it all well!
Haven't been there in years (don't know why), the Peking Duck salad is still excellent, very good menu and the BYOB status is nice on the wallet.
Six old friends got together here. Wine is not sold by the glass but by the bottle at about $25 - reasonable - and it was good. The dinners were very good. Three ordered the "drunken noodles" with shrimp and loved it. I ordered the garlic shrimp - also very good. The best meal was the Bershire Pork Porterhouse. It was oredered medium rare and was perfect. Thick and juicy and delicious. We would certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone!
I've been going to the Bistro for 20 years. Very dependable place to go. Always great all the way around.
It was really good. The service and food were excellent
The food is awesome & waiter was very good but the host / manager could be more friendly & smile
Never a disappointment. Brought my niece who was visiting from out of state. Travis was our waiter. We shared the duck salad (so glad this is back on the menu!) as an appetizer, and ordered lo mein, the salmon special and a burger. All were excellent.
Having dined at some of the top restaurants in NYC, there are few restaurants I would rate "outstanding". Wish OpenTable had an option for "excellent" as Bistro certainly qualifies.
First time her3. Food was good. Will return.
Bistro never disappoints. This is my go to spot for any sort of meetings or night out type events. The food is always top notch and so is their service.
We had a nice dinner with friends to celebrate my birthday. We all enjoyed our meals and especially the Crackling Calamari Salad.
My husband and I go and love there calamari salad and we add grilled shrimp!!! A must!!!
Great food. Bread is amazing and it’s carries over to the pizza
BYOB. We had the prix fixe menu, available two days a week. Good options, and generous portions. Noise level was a bit higher than usual due to a large group celebrating at another table. Good in summer for outdoor dining and people watching.
We arrived about 10 minutes before our reservation time and we were seated promptly. The service and the food were very good, especially the fish stew which was a special that night.
This is one of my favorite places! Great food and it’s BYOB.
Food was good. Like the eclectic type of food. Service was good.
