A great place to go and eat while visiting Lodi! Our server Wayne was one of the best servers that we have had on our trip. We ate outside and enjoyed every minute.

School Street Bistro is a must when in Lodi. This charming restaurant has; really good food, a nice menu, attractive prices, a good and reasonable wine list, and our service was excellent. We will stop again on our way south.

Thursday evening 40 minutes to get a bowl of soup. Fried asparagus very good. Very disappointing for visitors from out of state.
