We’ve never stopped in the small dark restaurant in the corner on Broadway with the pretty lights and outside seating - but tonight we thought we’d give it a try, after not getting into another restaurant on the west end. And I’m glad we did....More

We were attending a show at The Columbus Theater and chose Broadway Bistro because of its proximity. What a wonderful surprise! The food was so fresh and well prepared! It is small and deservatively crowded. It is well worth any wait!

Very cute from Broadway so we gave it a try. We weren’t very hungry so we just had a couple of appetizers. Fairly limited menu which likely changes frequently but there was something for every taste. Apps were good. Comfortable seating with a view of...More

Selections for the five of us were varied and excellent. Some had lamb, some meatloaf and some fish. Salads seemed salty - will caution them in the future. Too satisfied for dessert but overall, five stars. !!
