Really cute place, we came here for brunch. I had the burger and it was amazing!!! We were able to sit outside with my dog. Staff brought her a bowl of water and a treat. I love the upstairs area, too.

My husband, sister and I had dinner at Bistro St Michael on a Saturday night and it was wonderful from start to finish! When I made a reservation I noticed there were no crabcakes on the menu. We were disappointed as we had our hearts set on crab for dinner. But the chef was very accommodating and made us the... More

Had a wonderful dinner with my family. Service, food, decor are all great. We had 2 kids with us (8 and 9) and they really enjoyed the food. The bacon Mac n cheese side is good for kids. My daughter thought the server was the nicest she's ever met. The wine list was good and not overpriced. Would certainly go... More

We boated to St Michaels yesterday and called Bistro for a reservation for 4 people at 8pm. We were greeted warmly and promptly seated. Bistro is a small white table cloth restaurant with a casual/relaxed environment. The service could not have been better- NYC good without any attitude. The food was excellent and the space is nicely appointed. I would... More

Great atmosphere, comfortable setting and good service. A little more on the high priced side but well worth it.

Truly lovely little restaurant that was a five-star experience. The hostess, wait staff and even bread server were exemplary and very friendly, which always helps to make a memorable experience. We were able to find a decently-priced & yummy bottle of wine to share with our meal. We shared a salad, which was nicely proportioned for both of us. I... More
