Our coffee tastes like mude--cause it was just ground this morning

A beautiful downtown quiet spot that serves only today-fresh, locally grown menu. Since it is my wife's favorite place, I have eaten there 9 times. In all of those times, I have never ordered off the menu--the specials are special. Always two soups--an artisan and a hearty (roasted squash/fish... read more

Can you open one near us? This bistro was the best. They have gluten free bread and pasta (most of the time; call to check). They understand lactose-free and food intolerances. So appreciated. My husband and I both had the specials: snapper on pasta and a coconut encrusted fish over a mango arugula salad. Delicious, healthy, and fresh. Our server... More

During this particular visit, we were celebrating a colleague's graduation. The food and service were both excellent and the menu was varied for our food preferences. The chef uses fresh local food when preparing wonderful bistro type dishes. My adult children and I have been to Osceola any number of times. Weather permitting, we request outside dining. The outside dining... More

Have been a customer of Osceola Bistro since its inception years ago. Last night we went for dinner and their evening special was soft shell crabs. We originally lived in the Northeast and soft shells were featured often. Living in Florida for the past 10 years and they are hard to find. We ordered them for dinner and they looked... More

Osceola Bistro has some of the freshest, most creative meals in town. Always a pleasure eating here! The oysters, burger, wings, shrimp and grits, and chicken are all amazing! It's hard to pick a favorite dish.

Love this Bistro. Great food, service and atmosphere. Live music some evenings. Attentive staff, delicious food and not a pretentious place. Plus a small area is dog friendly! Very quiet in the dog friendly area; one would not even notice.

Osceola Bistro is one of the best restaurants in Vero. The menu is a variety of creative dishes that will make you want to come back for more. The chef uses all fresh ingredients. All of the ingredients are bought fresh from local farmers. Our favorite place to eat is at the bar. We enjoy visiting with Brian the bartender... More

What a terrible dining experience. The waiter was shockingly rude. He was very obviously put out to serve us dinner and drinks. It made the whole experience uncomfortable, and ruined our celebratory dinner. What a shame. Stay away from this place!

Went here for dinner. It was pricier than what I thought it was going to be. But they had specials. Thursday is pasta day. They had a list of pasta specials at more reasonable prices. I will say, the food was excellent. I had spinach fettuccine with chicken. My boyfriend had the ravioli. Both were good.

From the service to the food we were treated with benign neglect and indifference for the duration of our stay. The wait service was slow, but we were in no rush, when a waiter did show up, 5 minutes after we were seated in the half empty dining room, he asked if we had been helped yet, fair enough but...
