My wife and I were out and about -- we decided to stop in for some Romanian food. The Bistro is attached to a deli ,so you must walk through the deli to get to the bistro. It is a small quaint little place with a beautiful stained glass window. Being our first time, we were unsure if you sat... More

Pro: The plate presentation is acceptable with some nice wooden trays. The interior is kind of nice with Eastern Europe character. Con: I ordered the house's bean soup with smoked pork. The soup was from the can and the smoke pork was some very little bacon chopped and boiled together. My friend ordered "Goulash" that was completely tasteless. At the... More

The worst and most expensive lunch that I have ever had. I used to eat here a lot. But never again. The cabbage rolls tasted old, like they had been in the warmer for days. The only good thing that I had was the mashed potatoes. The worst food ever. Wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Delicious food, fresh and cook exactly like in Romania. Very good service! I will go eat there more often if they had a place in the South!

I ordered the schnitzel which came with two sides and it was very good and only $15!!! The only reason it did not get a five star is because I believe the food is reheated as the food served in the restaurant comes from the deli side. Don't get me wrong stilled loved the food, I could tell the potatoes,... More

The quality of ingredients and the love for food make all and everything we ordered just perfect. You don't want to cook at home after eating here (and I am cooking since I was 4) The place can look over-decorated but in fact reflects the Romanian tradition of exhibiting every object bearing some memories, around walls and shelves. The service... More

The dishes have appeal to people with Ukrainian, Polish and Hungarian decent. Generous portions, but pricy for the location. Nice decorations and layout and very pleasant servers.

A nice little deli full of delightful surprises. You can even have a nice hot meal and have a seat. Great little place packed with all kinds of goodies. Romanian or otherwise, I'm sure you wilk find something interesting to try and taste.
