A Fine Dining Experience

We had a really nice experience at The Bistro and have high standards for fine dining establishments. Though we mistakenly had reservations at 7:45 for the following night, we had a cocktail at the bar and were seated quickly.

We just had a great meal at The Bistro. We didn't have a reservation but luckily there was room at the bar when we walked in. I ordered the evening's special cocktail that was a champagne cocktail, the eggroll stuffed with collards and sausage, and the farm salad. It was all outstanding. My husband had a steak sandwich and liked... More

We ended back in Surf City for a quick weekend with our daughters and their boyfriends. I did a quick search for the top rated restaurants in the area. The Bistro came up in the top 15. I read the reviews and there were many that seemed negative. I am so glad I went with the overall rating and not... More

My parents came into town for a short period, and decided to celebrate their 39th wedding anniversary at the Bistro based on my recommendation. Due to circumstances outside their control, they were forced to call the Bistro 15 minutes prior to their reservations to inform them that they would not be able to arrive until 20 minutes after their scheduled...

I can't say just how impressed I was when I visited the Bistro for a bday dinner. The Bartender was amazing- she was super friendly and very helpful. Not to be outdone, the food was impeccable. From a Philadelphian Foodie, I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for big city standards but with the charm of an island getaway.

My wife and I went there the first week in June 2015 about 5:30. Half the place was empty yet we were told without a reservation we could eat at the bar or wait until 8:30. Not my type of place not sure if the food is worth that or not. Can't really give it a rating on the good... More

I'm fairly snobby about restaurants, but I was thoroughly impressed by The Bistro at Surf City. Atmosphere was warm and inviting. Service was friendly and yet very professional. And the food. Wow. Will go again. And again. And again.

We made reservations through Open Table for dinner for two and arrived about 20-25 min. late on a rainy weekday night. When we arrived, we were told that our reservations had been cancelled after waiting 15 min., despite the fact the restaurant was not full at all. No call, text, nothing...just cancel the reservations. We are permanent residents on the... More

This was an outstanding meal from beginning to end! We started with the She Crab bisque and a Fried Okra and Black Eyed Pea appetizer. OMG!!! The soup was perfectly seasoned...and who knew you could fry black eyed peas? Move over popped corn! For our meal we shared the Seared Tuna with Rice and Baby Bok Choy. Perfection... Sweet, spicy,...
