Good folks, food and wine. Pricing not bad. Lovely outdoor seating and optional back bar sports type atmosphere in addition to the classier front area.

As a local, have frequented many times and usually am overall satisfied with the cuisine but disappointed in the service because it seems not enough resources allocated to staff restaurant. Unless time to burn, suggest somewhere else.

We visited Bistro 33 after an art show on a Friday night. When many other restaurants in Davis were packed to the doors with students and had a waiting list 75 minutes long, we chose Bistro 33 because the wait time was significantly less (20 minutes), they have a great bar that wasn't full where we could wait, and the...

That's the only way to describe our dinner. There were 9 of us, with a reservation made weeks in advance for our daughter's graduation. We ordered drinks. One came with a giant, long black hair in it. We saw it when it was still on the tray, it was that grossly obvious. The bartender replaced it with another drink, but... More

I have been to Bistro 33 several times over the years and I can not say that it is my favorite place in Davis. Although, occasionally the food has been really good. It is not Fine Dining by any means and I get that but I think it is the service that really puts space in between my visits. A... More

I had a great clam chowder here and a yummy turkey sandwich. The prices are good for quality food. The big patio is a fun place to eat and watch the world go by. The service can be slow.

I want to give Bistro 33 a higher rating. I really do. It's a great location/ambiance. The food is good, not great. There are other local chains that offer consistently better food (the Paragary group, such as Cafe Bernardo). Where Bistro 33 really consistently misses is service. Note to management: better service will improve the overall experience.

We were drawn in by the lovely patio setting. Waited about 45 mins for a table (their time estimate was spot-on.) Pleasant service, good food. Oops - our appetizer arrived after our main course was served so sent that back. Otherwise, everything perfect.
