4 people, 4 food disappointments. I love wings, and Bistro just can't make wings without them being dry, overcooked and chewy. French fries arrived cold and soggy. Fooled twice. Never again. But if all you want is a cold beer and a great place to drink it, this place is actually perfect.

Typically love this place but the dinner was kind of unsettling with what was on the TV. It was little kids needing surgery for cleft lips and it was on for over 15 minutes. It really upset my dinner date who was with us due to personal issues. It ruined his experience and his appetite. Usually love this place and never had a bad experience, this was the first.

Great atmosphere, but food and service could be a lot better. Ordered buffalo wings that were overcooked, dry and crunchy. My orzo soup tasted good but was missing something....oh yeah, orzo!! As far as service, bartender/waitress tried get best but fell short.

Rooftop was well spread out and felt comfortable for the current social distance requirement. I was not comfortable with the street seating as people walking by would be right on top of your food and many were not masked. Appreciated the access to handsanitizer. Love the bottomless brunch.

We made a reservation for the rooftop outdoor beer garden approximately 1 week prior. However when we arrived the hostess took us upstairs only to say sorry there is nothing available. You can sit here inside or we can go back downstairs and outside. Hostess seemed confused and wasn’t aware on what was and wasn’t available. I personally was disappointed that our seating was not honored. Our waitress herself was fabulous, on point, attentive, and very friendly. The food was good. We received diner at the sister restaurant Dos Bistro and really enjoyed that.

I have garlic allergy, ordered burger. Was told Ok. Burger arrived wrapped in lettuce, no bun cuz it had garlic. Why didn’t server ask me if I want burger in lettuce? I could’ve ordered something else. Then they offered gluten-free bun. It took so long to bring back out! Everyone at my table finished by time they brought my burger back. We ordered 1 order Churros & 1 order pecan balls. We honestly thought they’d comp desserts, or manager at least apologize. trying to support local businesses and this was 3rd time at bistro since going green but I’m not going back.

Booked a table online for the rooftop for a party of 8. When we arrived we were told there was not rooftop seating during the week. We were disappointed and felt like someone should have told us earlier, especially since we were able to book a rooftop table weeks in advance.

I'd made a reservation and we were very late getting there. Thankfully, they held our table! Greatly appreciated! As we were running late for a show at Facetime Theater, the server got our drinks and apps and we made it on time. We came by after the show and the kitchen was out of several late night menu items. But the service was accommodating and made some other recommendations. Will definitely be back!

Staff was excellent and accomodating and approached our table many times to apologize. Two in our party have celiac disease so hardpressed to find items that were marked GF that were available on Fathers Day. Service was extremely slow. Food was subpar. Prices not worth what was served. Waiter was pleasant and zealous about finding GF foods available that day so cudos to him and the other staff members who came to our table to help and to apologize.

Our server was very nice and came to check on us several times. My biggest complaint was the antipasto pizza. It was a recommendation of the server and i wanted pizza so I gave it a try. The pizza has almost zero sauce on it so I had to request extra on the side, it was doughy and just off white crust so prob could have used more time in the oven and the flavors were just not good together, some bites tasted sour, like maybe one of the items on it was bad...not sure. I only ate one piece and took the rest home. I reheated it today in the toaster oven so I cooked it more thoroughly, and I gave it to my son for lunch. He tried to eat it but he had to throw it away, he agreed that something tasted sour and the entire pizza was off. I should have sent it back, but I thought it was just me being picky so I didn't. My daughter ordered beet and goat cheese salad and asked for no red onion. It came with onion, she just picked around them. The duck nachos were good and so was the beet salad (minus the onion). We tried to order mixed drinks but the first two drinks we tried to order you were out of the liquor required to make it. We wanted mojitos, but you had no white rum then we asked for seasonal mule and you were out of that, we wound up with third choice which was a disgustingly sweet pear martini that was dark pink, super sweet and had a strong cinnamon taste....not any pear martini that I've ever had that's for sure...it was pretty gross. All in all, it was nice to finally get out to eat, but the quality of your food and drinks really needs to step up a notch. Our server was a sweetheart. Maybe the kitchen/bar staff is new, I don't really know; but if you are the manager, I would address these items. I used to manage a few hotel restaurants so I'm sending this to you as constructive criticism, not so much as a complaint, so you can address it to make it better for other customers. Karen Wiegand

Food was great, drinks great, service amazing but the heating laps at the roof top bar were horrible. My scalp was burning. We kept asking the server to turn it off from time to time but then it was immediately freezing, which I actually preferred over feeling like my body was going to melt. I was at Bistro for a work meeting and actually had to stop using my laptop bc it was HOT. I was worried about it in the extreme heat. Please regulate the temps or maybe only turn on every other lamp. I def it won’t be coming back to the roof until it’s nice out, unfortunately.

Great night. The restaurant really has the tables separated. We requested a rooftop table and the server (Julia I think) had to go up and down the steps all night but still have us great service! I don’t know how these restaurants are staying in business during this pandemic. So sad to see emptiness everywhere - I hope they can weather through! Food and drinks were great!
