I was disappointed with 1424 Bistro. I was concerned upon arrival because the restaurant was almost empty at around 6:45 pm on a Thursday. I ordered the halibut. It was over cooked, dry, and VERY expensive! The dessert was pretty good, but overall it was...More

One of the best places I've ever eaten at. The food was incredible! A nice selection of different dishes and appetizers, great service, wonderful staff, and perfect setting. A little pricey but the food was worth it. You will not be disappointed!
