Will not be returning. The only enjoyable part was the soup. We both ordered peppered rib eye steak, cooked medium. We got one rib eye and one NY strip cooked well done. They didn't even taste the same. Paper thin and over seasoned. $25 for over cooked, leathery steak with soggy potatoes was hardly worth the trip. After returning home,... More

A great experience each visit. You' ll need reservations as it is quite small and only open on weekends. It is also BYOB. Besides the food being fabulous Judy sings pretty much anything you request. It is a party every night and your table is yours for the night. And if you sing the microphone is yours.

We were all through Florida on our summer vacation, and enjoyed Cuban, Columbian, and fresh seafood. But on our last night in St. Augustine we found a truly hidden gem - the King's Bistro. We walked into this small place hearing a beautiful vocal performance, and were seated as the show went on. We enjoyed a crab stew, stuffed shrimp,... More

Food was wonderful, steak, stuffed scallop, vegetables, potatoes, and salad. Owners came out to inquire about our experience, felt welcome and the atmosphere was very homey. Judy's singing rivaled anything on Broadway!

Tiny and open only weekends, so definitely call for reservations. Mike the convivial chef/owner sits and describes in detail the possible fare. His wife Judy serves and sings karaoke which sounds tacky but she sings beautifully and somehow it works. Besides the campy intimacy, the food was superb, as good as anywhere in town. The fish and shrimp oskar was... More

A small place only a few blocks from the tourist attractions and San Sebastion winery. You will wait a bit for your food as there is only one chef and one hostess/waitress who is the owner but not overly long. We were there for lunch and the soup and sandwhich were excellent. I didn't care for the potato salad that... More

We were told of this restaurant by a friend. And "warned" about looks of building and location. Not to fear...warm greeting, great food, fabulous service. Recommend this to all!!

My family went to Kings Bistro today and had a terrific lunch! My husband had the Grouper Reuben Sandwich for the fourth time! He said it is so consistently delicious! The fish is always moist and perfectly seasoned. My daughter and I both had the Steak Sandwich. The meat was so tender it could melt in your mouth. We both... More

I cannot believe there are so many good reviews for this restaurant on here. I went here for lunch one day with two of my girl friends and we had a terrible experience. the food was definitely nothing to rave about. My steak sandwich was greasy and upset my stomach, it also came with potato salad that was topped with... More
