The indoor dining area of the restaurant is very cozy with multiple rooms. The service was very attentive and friendly. The menu is varied with a lot of fresh seafood and other choices. I had the Thai stir-fry with hot curry and it was very...good. It was also very generous with the chicken and shrimp. My wife had fresh tuna and she really liked it. The wine selection is limited but it is solid. Overall, this was a very nice evening out and very good for couples, friends or families.More

From the time we arrived at the door until we walked out, we were treated incredibly well Our server Emily) was attentive and friendly. Everyone who contributed to this meal provided outstanding service. We don’t dine out often as we ourselves enjoy cooking, but this...was definitely worth taking the chance. We all had steaks and the Thermidor and none of us could stop commenting on our meals! Thank you to all the staff as well as the amazing Chef who contributed to this amazing evening! We will definitely recommend and return!More

I’ve been missing my long time love, the Buell St Bistro and their amazing patio lunches since the pandemic started. But enough was enough. I craved Chef Marc and lovely Linda’s impeccable French food and gave their number a call. Within seconds Linda and I...fell into our familiar chit chat and I felt right at home again. Inspired by local radio personality Bruce Wylie’s oft repeated rave reviews, I ordered the Indonesian Curry Plate Stir Fry. Linda suggested a salad and boom the mood was set and I obsessively watched the clock tick until our predetermined time for pickup was nigh. Arriving at the door I saw other eager dinners lined up for both reservations inside and more takeout. Everyone was excited and unusual for these times, in convivial spirits, while the flow of activity in and out began. I saw several friends leave with food, line up behind me. And I made some new friends along the way. Eavesdropping I heard sone out-of-towners comment on their highly recommended dining choice and honestly it was the best few minutes standing in a line I’ve ever experienced. When I got home I was, of course, thrilled by the smell, appearance and ultimately the tastes of my meal. I cannot recommend the Buell St Bistro any higher. Go. Enjoy. Repeat.More

I understand that they may have been busy but the service was a bit slow. When we asked for a second bottle of wine to be put on ice we were told "I'll do it if I have time" which was a bit off-putting. We...were seated at a large table in the middle of the room (we were 4) because our table wasn't ready yet. When it was we were asked to move and the hostess or manager (I guess) wasn't pleased but acquiesed when we reminded her that it was our originally booked table. So not the worst service I've ever had and the food was decent so you might want to give it a try although it would not be my first choice. The patio seems nice.More

We loved the food (seared Tuna and a curry dish). The atmosphere on the outdoor patio is lovely. I will go again. Just suggest you enhance your single wine serving choices. All three choices were no match for the superb food. I realize your focus...may be on selling bottles of wine and in that choice selection you excel.More

The service was very good but took a long time to get our meal, the kitchen was overwhelmed. I don't mind paying $$$ for a nice and tasty meal. All the menu items were overpriced for what we received. The meals we received were average,...veggies were nearly raw, Salmon was overwhelmed with pesto sauce, the soup was terrible, drinks were missing ingredients, overpriced, and not acceptable.More

This place is small and family run with homemade meals. I was impressed with the vegetarian food choices and that everything was fresh. The outside patio was gorgeous and the staff was friendly .
