I've been eating here for 20 years and I've never been disappointed. If you like French cuisine with a Southern twist, this is the place for you. My most recent visit had me eating Crab Rangoons with cole slaw for an appetizer, a very moist...More

We met friends from the area for dinner. They know we like French cooking and selected Bloomsbury. The food was wonderful and the service very accomplished. The atmosphere is quiet and was perfect for conversation over dinner. All in all, a wonderful experience.

It's been years since we last visited, but we dined there this past weekend, and no wonder Bloomsbury is alive and well. A fine dining environment without being stuffy. Service was excellent. Even though there were large parties there (nicely isolated in their own private...More

If I get to pick, my number one choice for dining in the Triangle is the Bistro, a neighborhood favorite that offers consistently excellent fine dining. The menu changes regularly and takes advantage of seasonal and local foods. Chef John Toler is highly creative but...More

We arrived relatively late, and I always find it impressive that the food is still very good and the service very good even if it is later in the evening, as so many restaurants fall off after 8:30 or 9:00. Despite our late arrival the...More

Last year they had a great deal and you got a $100.00 gift card for $80.00. I am waiting to see if they do this again so I can do all my shopping there!
