Good food. Waiter was super friendly and recommended us dishes. Overall, a good experience
First time visit and the food was excellent - we had the Sushi Tower appetizer (one of the specials), the Tuna Tacos and the Salmon Dinner. The outdoor dining vibe is one of the best (street blocked off). Service by our server, Bobby, was outstanding, great personality and he was very attentive despite having many tables to serve. Portion sizes were generous and don't pass up the desserts - we had the Key Lime Pie. The wine list was perfect although we do wish they had wines by the glass.
They rushed us WAY to much!! The waiter just stood there hovering multiple times waiting to take our order. It was very creepy and rude. We said we need a minute and he still didn’t leave. The appetizer came out within 3 minutes and our entree 5 minutes after that!!!! Unacceptable!! And funny part is they made us wait 1/2 hour to be seated for our reservation and had the nerve to rush us out. Ruined the whole night.
Amazing food and love the vibe of Broadwalk!
Nice location and outdoor setting, quality of food and service just not what it used to be.
Food was excellent. The restaurant was extreme hot and uncomfortable to sit in.
I had the worst food Ive ever eaten. It came out quicker then mcdonalds and tasted like I was chewing rubber. Entire meal was rushed and prices definitely over the top for what we received.
Good was ok not great .. disappointed
The crispy rice spicy tuna app is amazing!!!! Good food a little pricey. My son lovedddd the red sauce on the kids pasta.
The appetizer and pork chop were excellent. The salmon was quite dry and was served without a starch. Service was excellent.
Perfect restaurant for us to catch up! Food & service was outstanding!
Aidan our waiter was excellent!
Food was excellent!!! Service exceptional. We had a great night.
The food was served quickly and was delicious (I had a fig and goat cheese pizza with flavors that were both distinct and melded; my dining partner had sweet potato and shrimp dumplings and farm salad). The server was friendly and attentive throughout.
Sushi was great. Waiter was charming. BUT the bus boys were extremely eager to do their job and clear the table. We were asked “Are you still working on that?” multiple times even though we were still holding our utensils and chewing! I can only blame it on poor training. I wanted to love this place but I felt as though we were playing defense throughout the meal.
Aiden will our waiter was very attentive and informative. Pizza was really good. Salad was ok. Calamari salad had too much lettuce.
Nice atmosphere and quiet to talk.
Very nice.. 10/10 food and service
All the food we eat was amazing. Highly recommend Calamari salad, sushi, short rib (
Good food. Servics was very good. We ate indoors, a little too noisy but otherwise very good, BYO
Overall food, service and ambiance is usually very good. Have been coming to the Bistro for over 10 years. Right in the center of Red Bank provides the opportunity to also take advantage of other stores and restaurants to visit 🍷
Great food & excellent staff! Always an enjoyable dining experience
nice father’s day dinner
Food was pretty good, place was busy which was nice to see. We felt though we were being rushed. Wanted to clear plates while a couple of us at the table were still eating. Our bread pudding dessert was dry, so looking forward to it. Other then that, we had a nice night and will probably be back.
The service rushed us out of the restaurant.
Minus 2 stars for waiting 1.5 hour for the food
The food is always good , staff are friendly. Eating outside or in it's a great place to dine.
The food was great… However I thought the staff was a little rude when we asked to be sat inside because it started raining. There were plenty of available tables inside.
We were seated by the hostess and waited for about 30 for someone to approach our table before we left and went across the street to enjoy our dinner. After coming here for 25 years this was the worst experience we ever had.
Rude hostess. She acted as though she was doing us a favor by seating us although we had a reservation and told us she would cut our time by 15 minutes if we sat outside and lectured us on how we should have called for outside although we explained we made reservation on open table that gave no choice for indoor vs outdoor seating. wait staff was friendly and attentive. Food was average .
Poor service. Food was ehh. Wouldn’t return.
Very very disappointing. They called to confirm our reservation, very rude, hostess rude, rushed to order, forgot to put our appetizer order in. Then ordered the appetizer and let our dinner get cold. I would never go back
Food was great, love music outdoors
Great choice for a business lunch! Good location, food and ambiance.
Food was delicious, but the price was a little much for the food we got.
Love this place!
Hostess was rude and unpleasant. If I wasn’t a business meeting I would have left and gone to a different restaurant. Food was good as always.
Best restaurant around!
Our server Bobby was awesome! Made the night great.
