Good food but

Lives up to its reputation as a really good high end meat restaurant. My only “beef ” is that many of the items especially in the appetizers are on the sweet side. The stuffed Portobello mushrooms were excellent but far too sweet for my taste. The waiter told me that many dishes are like... read more

Had a very average meal last night at Bistro 56. Never quite sure why kosher restaurants are unable to produce more memorable did. The veal sausages special starter tasted like a standard packet of Blooms viennas and the burger came in s standard bun lacking a little flavouring.

I have eaten here before and consistently find the food to be good. my husband and I shared an eggplant appetizer, and each had a whole grilled fish on the bone. Food good, fresh, tasty and even a little inventive. Highly recommend.

The meat was very good, well seasoned and served with a vegetable and potatoes. The restaurant has a good view and has a unique interior, but had loud annoying music playing. The device was good. We would go back!
