I eat here just about every week. One of the best restaurants in DeBary. I have the Manchengo salad and it is great! Daily soup specials are delicious! I have had several other items on the menu and portions are generous and fresh. Sit outside if it is not too hot! Highly recommend!

We were in town on business and stopped her on a recommendation. The service was excellent and the Calle Ocho pulled pork sandwich on a pretzel role was DELISH! If you are ever in Debary and hungry for good food and service...stop in and see them!

My husband and I dined here and it was amazing. The outside dining and atmosphere was awesome. The service was great. The food was outstanding. I had the filet with Bearnaise and and my husband had the salmon. The chef Tommy came to the table to say hi and stated that he does not serve his filet with a steak... More

First, I will say that we have been to Genuine Bistro a couple times prior. We had no problems. Apparently when my husband and I visited this time they were short-staffed and the bartender had to wait on us. We sat for approximately 10 minutes before she came over and gave us menus. Another 5-10 minutes passed and she came... More

It was important that my son and his bride pre-wedding dinner be tasteful and memorable. From the moment I met Chief Tommy, I knew his attention to detail, while listening to what was important to me, would make the dinner a special evening for family and friends. The bride's side of the family had several relatives flying long distances from... More

My bride & I have been moving her mother into a care facility over the past few months. If we hadn't found Genuine, I don't know what we would have done. It was our haven. The food is impeccable. We had no complaint in any facet of any meal. Excellent ingredients prepared simply and perfectly. The staff - from the... More

This is a crowded noisy place with a small bar, inside and outside dinning. I wouldn't recommend it for a romantic evening but for a get together like we were having or a family and or friends meet up its great. Good is good and services was friendly and prompt. Menu is varied: From Shrimp and grits to pork medallions... More

Good food, generous portions and attentive service and a good spot for family or group parties on the patio. Thoroughly enjoyed each time we have eaten there

The bride and I stopped in here for supper after moving her mom and we were badly in need of food and a drink! Genuine Bistro was more than up to the task. As we sipped two perfectly prepared martinis, we munched on the Tempura Asparagus which were perfectly prepared and matched with a horseradish crema. As we moved on... More
