Andouille, chicken and collard egg rolls were amazing. Mussels and clams delicious, sauce was a little thick (personal preference)but they give you lots of toasted bread for dipping. Bartender was a true professional, she knew every inch of her bar and worked very efficiently and with enthusiasm. Excited to go back.

We've been wanting to go here for years, and with friends visiting, we decided to take the opportunity to spend dinner out. The service was quick and friendly. The food was delicious, though the portions were large, sadly we were too full to try the deserts. The menu offered a wide selection, from burgers to baked duck. We will be... More

The meal we had tonight was just wonderful! Our server, Matthew, was so helpful. I loved the scallops in the cream sauce & my son is still raving about his portobello sandwich.

My wife and I just ate here and it was the best meal we have ever had. Our waitress Jordan was the best! We will definitely be eating here again.

Great restaurant with great food and service! Had a terrific server and she was very knowledgeable and attentive. Restaurant was small and tables a bit close - but we had a good meal and we were glad we were able to have dinner there before headed home.

My husband and I took a little "time out" from our family vacation for a date night at The Bistro. We chose it based on a recommendation from a friend who is a "foodie" and whose advice is always spot on. We were not disappointed! What a lovely evening. We had a reservation for 9pm (made that afternoon, so not... More

Went there with the same group that has been with me all week. Hands down, this is the best restaurant experience we have had to date. We had 6 people in the party and the following items were much appreciated by all: The seared tuna appetizer, the tomato, roasted pepper bisque, the house chips and finally the main entrees. Three...

Although it's probably overpriced and not quite the same quality, this place might finally be a replacement for the gourmet place that used to be on the sound next to the Trading Company. Lots of locally sourced and healthy options are a nice contrast to the flood of fried seafood you can get lost in while at the beach.

We arrived at the Bistro and the owner encouraged us to leave due to 4 children being in the party. As our children are well behaved 9-15 year olds, he "allowed" us to stay. 1 hour and 15 minutes into the meal he asked us to leave as he wanted to seat other customers. We had not finished our meals... More

BistroOwner, Owner at The Bistro at Just Baked, responded to this review

As the owner of a restaurant, I generally don’t respond to negative comments online. After 20 plus years of working on the service industry, you develop a thick skin and learn that sadly everyone will not be happy every day. However, on occasion comments are posted that are so misleading, one-sided, and plain false that I feel the public should... More
