Good meal on XMAS eve. Drinks were small and OK. Service was very good. Pricing was a little expensive, but not bad.

We weren't interested in going to a larger restaurant or paying for a package deal...we just wanted a quiet delicious dinner to celebrate the New Year and the Hollow Bistro delivered. The service was very good and the food was excellent. It is a smaller place but that's what makes it cozy and the dinner menu provides fine dining selections... More

Our first experience at the Hollow was not going to be our last. The menu has an Asian influence but definitely not like a typical Chinese restaurant. The salads were delicious as was the calamari. Fried to a nice golden color, not at all greasy with a wonderful dipping sauce. The bread was warm with a unique spread of a... More

Every dish was well thought out and executed with care. We especially appreciated that even the "details" like the butter for the breads and the salad dressings were unique and tasty. Dessert was to die for!

The Hollow Bistro has a unique and delicious menu. The special- in- house- made butters are scrumptious. It offers different dining deals during the week. Only thing, I wish it was not so noisy. Tables are close and when restaurant is full, the volume makes it difficult to have a quiet couple's dinner.
