The food is terrific. The portions are very generous and the price is reasonable. This was our first visit but we will return when we are in the area.

Pretty bistro. Great brunch cocktails. The 5 of us had different salads - each one was artfully composed, and delicious. I would take my chances here for any meal of the day.

Lunch at Bistro never disappoints. Recently enjoyed special - flounder over greens ~ fresh, delicious, and, yes, healthy. Servers always personable and efficient.
