We made reservations for a party of seven and were seated once we arrived. We were told by the waitress, who was good at her job, that they make everything fresh and try to use local ingredients so the menu constantly changes. We all split the following appetizers: tuna , crab dip and calmari. All were very good. The calmari... More

By far, the best restaurant in Surf City. The menu is interesting and the wine list is broad. On this night, I had the Pork Belly with ham risotto and an egg on top. My guest had the 14 spice ribeye, which looked and smelled wonderful. You could see the eat melting in their mouth. The wine list is pricey,... More

The Bistro is a nice small restaurant with an intimate setting. Service was good and the staff member was attentive. Our group of four tried different dishes and found all to be good. The restaurant offers unique drink and entree specials. Definitely recommend it for a nice dining experience.

We visit the Bistro every time we go to Topsail for an elegant and delicious dinner. This time was no exception - my husband had the ribeye and I had the shrimp and buttered crab - both were fabulous!

After viewing this restaurants website i thought my wife and i had found a hidden gem on this quiet island. We are both foodies as she worked in a NYC fine dining restaurant through college and i still slave away as a sous chef of a great place in the outer banks. I was expecting some killer local shrimp on... More

Had dinner there with friends and it was very good. The service was good even though they were very busy, The price was a little high but worth it.

I treated six adults to a celebratory dinner at The Bistro. Across six entrees, three appetizers and three salads - the food was top notch. Unfortunately, the decor and noise level were problematic. It was so very loud it really detracted from our dining experience. Our meals were served with paper napkins ... tacky! Shrimp and grits, pan-seared scallops and... More

We dined here with friends, as we were told this was the best restaurant on Topsail Island, and it was a special occasion. We arrived 10 minutes early for an 8PM reservation on a Thursday night, and did not get seated until almost 8:30. Service was very prompt, our waitress was well informed, and got our food to us in...

We arrived and we're promptly greeted and without a reservation had a very minimal wait so we had a drink at the bar. All going well so far, the bar tender was very friendly and the drinks were good didn't realize that was the best part of the meal! We travel extensively and do not mind paying for a great... More
