Not enough stars to rank the food and service here. The pasta dishes were perfect. The rib appetizer awesome. The calamari cooked and seasoned to perfection. The seafood makes your taste buds do the happy dance. Share a desert. Our waitress was Natalie and presented exemplary service with a warm hearted and sincere smile. This will be my must do... More

Another great experience at the Bicycle Thief. We were there over the summer (2014) and enjoyed a great evening with friends, starting at the new Champagne Bar...ending with dinner on the patio! Superb. Came back on December 12th and once again - they did not disappoint. Great food recommendations from the waiter...and he was right on - fantastic!

After looking forward to checking out The Bicycle Thief I have to say that I was disappointed. Service was great (although a little too much at times) and the food was delicious but....the noise....oh my goodness the noise! I could hardly hear my dining companion and at times had to raise my voice to be heard. Sadly this distracted from... More

Food was awesone (salmon was perfectly cooked and lime pie just enough sweet and sour). The service was great. We were there on a wednesday and it was full so you probably want to reserve.

Great food. Atmosphere is amazing. Drinks at the bar are wonderful. Service sucks. I've visited TBT on several occasions- each time is surmised by the statements above. If you want great food and service that is too hip by half-- the the thief is your spot!

Dined at the Bicycle Thief for the first time in April 2014. It was my friend's birthday, so thought we'd splurge a bit to celebrate. There were 4 in our party. First of all, we had a reservation for 7 p.m., and didn't get seated until after 8 p.m. We were offered drinks while we waited, and since there was... More

Second time was as great as the first. Fantastic menu with great seafood and much more. Would recommend you order a starter and a main. Ask what is fresh (re seafood) and add a pasta. Excellent all round but make sure to make a reservation.One big issue i wish they would address: they need to add local beer on tap.... More

I've been to the Bicycle Thief many times. I've had romantic dinners there, family dinners, and business dinners. It's a great venue for all three. The food is always great, and consistent, and I have never had poor service. It is located right on the waterfront, and in the summer is a hub of activity. They also set a champagne... More

The service , the food and the presentation is one of the best in the city. A little noisy , but you get used to it . The indoor bar is friendly and fun. Usually find regular locals there from the surrounding condominiums. In the summer the outdoor bar and dinning is prime real estate with a million dollar view... More
