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.

Bistro 33 is one of the worst restaurants I've ever been to. The service is terrible, the food is disgusting, and the prices are outrageous, We went one time, and had to wait for half an hour to order. (This would be understandable if it was super busy, or they were understaffed, but there were about ten other table filled... More

Bistro 33 is wonderful place to have lunch on a warm afternoon visiting with friends. I love the Puget Sound Panini and several of the salads.

This is one of the best places to dine outdoors in Davis. It's too bad the atmosphere, service and food are mediocre, at best. Prices are bit high, which is fine when the service and food are good. But in this case they do not measure up. The atmosphere is also boring. In the summer they often have terrible live... More
