I ordered the Filet. It was very good. Perfect preparation. I would have given this restaurant five stars, except that they didn't handle our large group well - and that was the whole point of the dinner. The sour point on the meal was that...More

We've had Christmas Eve dinner here in years past and it was very nice. This year our elderly relative requested we go back so we took her there. We called and made a reservation at Bambu about 3 weeks ago. Upon arrival we saw the...More

The Bambú lounge was crowded with guests watching the NBA Finals so we opted to dine in the more formal Bambú Restaurant. My wife ordered the Filet of Angus Beef Tenderloin (smoked short ribs). She gave me a bite. Delicious. I opted for the 3-course...More

As a solo woman traveler, it is important to me to get good service. I do at the bar at Bambu - can't say the table service is as nice.

Ask about specials and things not on the menu. Clearly I'm a fan of their French Onion Soup which was only mentioned when I asked. They're also flexible about the 3-course meal option, so you can ask about if they're willing to do substitutes, that...More
