Truly Excellent, Tiny French Gem

We've eaten here a half dozen times, and the food is always excellent and inventive. The chef is friendly and informative, and the restaurant is cozy without being cramped.

Nice decor. Pleasant, attentive service. Knowledgeable waitstaff helped with choices when we couldn't decide. Interesting choices for wines and perhaps even more so for beer. Food was okay. No standout dishes. Salad was dressed well-- sometimes places really don't know how to dress a salad properly. They do. Not a soggy mess of greens. Scallops were average. Lamb chops, striped...

We have been to Bistro Etc. at least four times and consider it not only the best, but also the most consistent restaurant in Port Washington. It is small and has an unassuming mid-block location on Main Street, not far from the Port Washington LIRR station (and, yes, it is ABSOLUTELY worth the train ride for those of you who... More

When you come to port or live in port, this is a must place to have dinner. Chef Karen, really knows how to cook. I have had 10 different entrees and each one is jet perfect in flavor . The wine list is excellent, although small, and the prices reasonable. The chocolate mouse is out of this world .

We went here because of the 5 star reviews--I thought that it was more of a 31/2 to 4 star experience. We had the prix-fixe and were not very impressed. The bread was uneatable, the service was so-so, and the portions were underwhelming. The only positive was the quality of the entrees was acceptable. We will not be seeking this... More

I had driven past this small storefront, read the reviews and decided to try it. Was not disappointed. The food was delicious: excellent quality fish and meat and interesting preparations. The chef was extremely accommodating. One of us had special dietary needs and she cheerfully made substitutions. Portions are generous: for dessert we shared the profiteroles, which were filled with... More

Dined here this week with a few friends. We enjoyed tasty salads, a perfect salmon filet and delicious pasta. The service was pleasant and responsive. The decor is lovely. Highly recommend this restaurant and plan to return soon.
