Wonderful

I have not been there since the summer at which point we sat outside in the patio. It was beautiful, it reminded me of an English Garden, there was even a resident cat. The food was amazing, the service was outstanding and I would highly recommend this place.

The food is...for want of a better word, eclectic. Having said that, I have allergies to some common food items, and one or another seemed to be in every item I wanted. So I went old school, Steak....and it was very tasty. The service was ok, not spectacular, not awful either. The venue needs work and more space. When the... More

This restaurant has excellent foods and also serves gluten free options and will work with their patrons who are on special diets.

I must quantify my rating of 3. On the food alone it merits more like a 4.5 but the restaurant itself drags the score down. In some fairness we did arrive 5 minutes after opening and in winter which I imagine is slower than tourist season. Now having said that we walked in and easily waited 4 to 5 minutes... More

Buell St Bistro ranks first in my dining experiences for 2014. The chef had just placed Organic Chicken,a new dish, on the menu when we visited for the first time in May. When I saw the chicken had Earl Grey tea crusting I had to try it. Described as, "Organic free range chicken breast with an Earl Grey-fruit tea rub... More

I have been there before and everything was very good! This time I had the fish and there were some scales left on it. The other person ordered a steak and it was under cooked.

Picked this spot based on the reviews and the fact that it was open till 10pm. The ambience was very pleasant and warm, and the wait staff was very attentive. The food we ordered was excellent though the mussels and crab cake on the menu were not available this night. The portions were very generous and the prices quite reasonable.... More

This is a great out of the way place to eat. The food is made from scratch and always amazing. The have Jazz musicians once a week, or some entertainment going on. I recommend it highly.

Thank you for the most enjoyable meal I can remember. I had the 8 oz angus steak from the gluten free menu - I developed an allergy 3 years ago. It was so tender, it practically melted in my mouth. Cannot wait to return!!!
