Had lunch at Bistro 217 and as usual the food and service were exceptional. Our server Linda was attentive but not hovering, and the food was excellent. I had the Cobb salad and my wife the crab salad. The Cobb has all the elements laid out nicely on the plate so you can mix them as you like, and especially... More

I have been here several times for lunch, but never for dinner. Lunch was always excellent, and I was usually in a large group of ladies--like 15 to 20 of us celebrating our monthly birthday get together. Their lunch menu is wonderful, something for everyone, and good value for the $$$. Plus, they allows us to bring in our birthday... More

Whenever we want a meal we can count on we go to Bistro. I think I have only had one meal there that was not up to par, and we eat there very often. The bar inside and out is usually our choice (all the bartenders are great!), and the atmosphere is topnotch. You really cannot go wrong. It's a... More

Bistro 217 has an amazing lunch menu. The specials are wonderful as well. It's a fantastic restaurant for lunch or dinner. We tend to have lunch here, because the evening meals are a bit pricey. The food is amazing and the service is outstanding. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Anything dish that has fried green tomatoes... More

Go for the grouper cheeks appetizer!! Not always on the menu but a real find when they are. They seem to feature several fresh seafood entrees on a risotto base -- all are very good!!

After a day of sightseeing, we stopped in for dinner. We did not consider we probably were not appropriately dressed for the restaurant (jeans and t-shirts) and that it happened to be valentines day, but we were quickly seated anyway. We had looked at the menu earlier and were concered when we found out there was a special valentine menu.... More
