Great for a romantic stroll or a place to hide away in. If u go to winter park this is one stop u must make. Your... More

We had a great romantic evening here. It is a quaint little restaurant where you can enjoy a great meal, have a superior glass of port afterwards and then stroll along Park Avenue to other shops and restaurants. The staff was extremely friendly and the food was fabulous! We live in Ocala and will make this trip again.

We visited The Bistro on a Saturday afternoon as a place to "plant" and do some work. The hostess, wait staff, and owner were all so accommodating - finding us a secluded place to sit near an electrical outlet, providing us with internet access, and constantly checking in throughout our 3 hour stay. The food was simple and delicious. I... More

Had lunch here today and ordered their special. Crepes with chicken and spinach and a salad and both were very good. Had a glass of wine each and it was served in a carafe and was satisfactory. .Ordered coffee and a dessert. Unfortunately, they only had one piece of chocolate cake left, which we split. They were out of key... More

They wipe their tables with a smelly, moldy cloth and it permeates everything. The menues smelled, the tables smell, the seats smell, I just cannot get that smell out of my nose! The food might have been delicious, it looked good, but the smell in the Atrium was overwhelming. We asked the Manager to reclean our table and he said... More

From the time we walked in, we felt ignored until someone finally saw us and asked if they could help us. Duh, we’re here for dinner. We were escorted to a table and the server said their specialty is crab cakes and soft shelled crab dinner. Since my wife and I love crab so much, we decided to try the... More

We found this secluded restaurant by chance. They have a great choice of oyster dishes... Take the grilled ones! Good choice of wines! The waitress was knowledgable about the wines! All in all a definite recommendation! Would come again!

This is a charming place at the end of a pretty alley, away from the street noise. They feature several New Orleans style Creole dishes, such as crawfish etouffe, shrimp jambalaya and grilled oysters. It is not the best Creole food outside of New Orleans; it is the best including New Orleans! I have been there at least a dozen... More
