Went for supper.the owner or cooker or manager yell at us in front of all of the customers because he claim Italians kalamata Greek olives, this is not fair cause on the menu it’s rotten mixed Italian olives, he makes lot of profits it’s this...crap “appetizer” . Also the Italian olives he serves are the worst quality available on the market, extra sour and coloured with e311 Chlorphillyn and copper to reach bright green, unnatural. Then, buy a sausage from the butcher and cook it with some vegetables it’s not cook Italian, Italians knows food and how to process otherwise I cook at home. We also tried a kind of prosciutto wrapped pork meat, extra salty inedible, prosciutto is salty by itself so why add salt, newbie mistake. Tuna cruda, should be crudo, so learn Italian also, looks more like salmon, taste of anything but spices. Vino on the menu is not available. Really bad food, not Italian for sure.More

We celebrate birthdays and special occasions at the Bistro, where the food delicious, the menu fascinating, with an elegant dining area and great staff; love to see the chefs preparing our meal. The summer patio, at night, is truly a delight.

Thanks so much for the kind words. It's the same grind for all of us right now but lets just hope that we will be able to open the patio again very soon. Until then...

Once again Dave and Nikki have provided us with an absolutely decadent special dinner with dessert. On one of the coldest nights of the last year, my husband arrived home with a hot delicious meal. Care to detail in packaging our meal assured restaurant quality...presentation. If you want a special high end meal, with mouthwatering dessert at a reasonable price, order!!!More

My wife and I dined at Bistro 54 last Friday night like we have done many times before. Covid rules were strictly adhered too but did not interfere with the enjoyment of the meal or evening. We sat upstairs by the wine bar. The waitress...was very friendly and professional. Food was excellent accompanied by nice bottle of wine. We were too full for dessert. Highly recommended! We will be back again.More

The best homemade pasta I have tasted in a long time. The menu was not extensive due to Covid-19, but choices were still varied and the food was fresh and excellent!

Bistro 54 came highly recommended by locals and visitors alike and they were not wrong. My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and chose here for dinner. COVID-19 protocols were in full measure, wait staff wearing masks, tables closed off to maintain distancing, etc....Our server was very friendly and attentive, helping us decide what to order. She even made our desserts complementary and added candles to help us celebrate! We had a table next to the kitchen and we could see through the window. The kitchen ran like a well oiled machine, staff looked cheerful and worked well in such a small space. The food was amazing. We started with the smoked duck pizza appetizer, which was a great starter size. I wish they would make this a full size, I could eat this all day. My wife had chicken parmesan and I had the salmon, both were cooked perfectly and tasted great. We finished with creme brule and a chocolate brownie for desserts. What an incredible time, we will consider eating here again for special occasions. The meal was just over $100 for the two of us so it is not inexpensive, but well worth it for special occasions.More
