This is one of my favorite suburban restaurants. The prices are so reasonable and the menu is fantastic. I go frequently and try their pre-fixe menu most times. I have my favorites that I share with my husband. The shrimp and crab cake, the goat cheese salad, braised lamb shank, creme brûlée, profiteroles. Everything here is very good.

For our first visit to Retro Bistro, we made last-minute reservations for Bastille Day. The food and service were wonderful. We shared a tasty cheesy ravioli as an appetizer and our entrees: rolled Mediterranean chicken and the duck were very good, but filling. We really liked this place so we took my parents there the following Saturday evening. This time,... More

My wife and I have dined at Retro Bistro more than a half dozen times, and consistently, our meals have been wonderful. The menu offers a wide variety of options, the wine choices are solid, the wait-staff is friendly and enthusiastic, and the fixed price menu is very reasonable. Chef Christopher Barth is always on hand to greet us, which... More

Fixed price dinner at $45 gives you a 3 course menu with multiple choices of very good food Generous portions usually a turn off but this place is the exception At $45 definitely a best buy

Nothing better than an 80th Birthday party at the honorees favorite restaurant. 18 of us had a wonderful experience from tasty appetizers, fine drinks and a choice of three great entrees. Our server Kara did a wonderful job with all the family.. Great neighborhood spot in a non discript strip mall.

We decided to meet friends at this restaurant for a leisurely dinner since we hadn't seen each other in over a year. The staff was very attentive but at no time did we feel rushed. The tables filled but no one was waiting so we enjoyed a 2 1/2 hour dinner on a Saturday evening. The food was delicious with... More
