Tonight, I had the most wonderful evening at this restaurant. It was my first time. My friends, Eleni Chris and Jerry Bruno were performing so I drove an hour in the rain to enjoy their talents. What I didn't expect was the fantastic cuisine and great service. As an appetizer, I had the brie, walnuts and sliced apples with crostini.... More

Decided to try this restaurant based on a couple of reviews in Trip Advisor. Glad we did. I had the grilled chicken with sautéed spinach. Delicious! My husband tried their fish and chips. It was a very large serving. While the fish was covered in a crispy crust, there was a good serving of tasty fish on the inside (I... More

I'm not sure why we don't come here more often, as it is one of the best restaurants around. We started our evening with a nice glass of Chardonnay and draft beer, both reasonably priced . Ordered the ahi appetizer and tasted as if it had just been unhooked and filleted! Beautiful presentation! Hubby ordered the Pork Moutarde and raved.... More

We really enjoyed a couple of hours chatting with friends around a table in the bistro and enjoying a lovely chocolate dessert with coffee - great atmosphere.

Can you achieve perfection? It just might be possible at the Genuine Bistro and Lounge in DeBary, FL. Our group of 8 people were treated to a quite perfect evening. We had a reservation which was set up and ready to go when we arrived. Our waitress, Kate, showed up shortly and took care of us better than probably any... More

This is one of the most perfect experiences that my husband and I have had in a VERY long time! The food was unbelievably delicious, the ambiance was wonderful and the servers were friendly and attentive! We started off with their tempura shrimp and teriyaki sauce appetizer and our eyes rolled back to the back of our heads! Then hubby... More

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!
