We were alerted to this restaurant by an article in a local paper. The article was quite positive regarding this City Island bistro. We agree, in fact give it an even more positive review. The restaurant is a simple, casual building, with equally simple internal furnishings. We opted for the "outside" setting, a small but comfortable set of 4 tales.... More

Very intimate dining amidst French photos and framed art hanging on the walls. service was quite slow despite the fact that we dined on a rainy Tuesday evening and the dining room was half empty. We only saw one employee in the dining room. Since this was our first visit we do not know if this is the norm. He... More

City Island is an unexpected marvel in Pelham Bay; legally part of the Bronx, metaphorically a New England fishing village, it's 1.5 miles of boatyards, densely packed wood-frame houses, and restaurants. Traditionally, these are seafood places specializing in lobster, and it's where people in the know from the Bronx and southeast Westchester go when they have a hankering for crustaceans.... More

This is not at all French cuisine, food lacked flavor. While visiting City Island, my husband and I decided to try Bistro Sk. The staff was great and provided excellent service but the food was below average and not all what we were expecting. The reason for writing the review is not because of the below average food but the... More

Thankfully, City Island is without fast-food franchises. However, it is hard to walk a block on City Island without seeing a seafood restaurant. Bistro SK is a welcome option. We've had both dinner and brunch here numerous times and have never been disappointed. Prices are very reasonable and the staff are more than accomodating. For a change of pace, it... More

We visited for my mom's birthday for brunch. All 6 meals were delicious and the unlimited mimosas/ bloody marys added to the great value. It's a nice, quaint departure from the bigger restaurants on the island. The owners are really nice too!

We've been coming here for 3 years and love the food. My husband is French and we've traveled extensively in France and this compares to our experience. We've had everything on the menu and can recommend everything. We went last night for some holiday specials and we had the beef bourguignon, magret of duck, foie gras and beet salad, and... More
