Great food, service, selection and pricing. One of our favorite wine selections, Silver Oak, was priced here at the same price, we pay at the store. My favorite beer, Duck Rabbit Milk Stout, was lower here than at all the neighboring bars. The meals were...More

When you hear “bistro” you usually think of fancy dishes in small portions. Not here! The food is fancy and delicious but the portions are not small! I had the New York Strip and it was a generous sized steak. My companion had Chicken Cordon...More

Bloomsbury Bistro has the best food in Raleigh. It has been around a long time is generally forgotten by the "food critics". They only care about "new" restaurants. If you have not eaten at Bloomsbury, you are missing out.

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.

We had a fabulous experience. First they out us at a special corner table knowing it was our anniversary. Ambiance was relax yet upscale. Service was fantastic. We ordered the goat cheese ravioli appetizer and citrus salad to share. Both were fresh and delicious. Bread...More

This place has a sort of outdated front and might need a little renovation, but don't let that fool you: The chef is simply awesome and the food is good, tasty, well presented. We tried the fish of the day, lamb and duck breast. All...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!
