My brother invited us to dinner . Bistro is one of their favorite restaurants. It's small and can get very noisy. Food is consistently good. Service can be slow. We did enjoy ourselves however. it took a long time to pay the bill

We had a very nice dinner here before going to a show at the Kirby Center. The restaurant offered some unusual choices, and the food was delicious. The service was very efficient; we did not feel at all rushed. We'll definitely go back!

I had the chicken Francese which really had no flavor I needed to add salt which I never do . The service was great but for me it's all about the food which wasn't really good.

All the seafood options, including the special were excellent. Shrimp, tilefish and scallops. Sides are unique and well matched to the main course. Well balanced and generous portions. The martini menu is large and exceptional.

My party of six was originally crammed in a table for four although the place was nearly empty and there was a large bench that could accommodate eight right next to it. My request to move was granted. I had to ask the waiter to...More
