Bistro is lively and very very popular. Sit at the bar with your friends and enjoy a burger or snack, or savor a delicious formal meal in the main restaurant. The garden room is beautiful, but can get noisy.

We went there to meet a couple of friends that invited us for a dinner. This place is an upscale restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere. It in a convenient location, but I wished the parking was bigger. We started the dinner with fried calamari rings with spicy peppers and a white sauce on top, to share, and a salad. We... More

This is a sister restaurant to The Rustic Table, but more upscale. The food was well prepared. Bistro 217 is on our list for our next visit.

The restaurant offers a varied distinctive menu. Presentation is excellent; it verifies the care in preparation of the meal. The professionalism of the waitstaff is unique in this tourist area and is most appreciated. A delectable experience.

Based on TA reviews we made a reservation several days ahead and we were delighted. The choices were interesting, the food was great and the dining area extremely pleasant. Both owners stopped by to ask about the meal, and the owner/chef stayed to answer questions and talk about the food - these are special touches that are so often lost... More

Had dinner here for the first time and it won't be the last. From our waitress, Rebecca's great service and smile to the owner and chefs Adam's delicious braised ribs and duck. Adam even made rounds to the dining area. If its cheap food you want, go to McDonald's, here you get what you pay for. The food is just... More
