A good meal

Not a whole of atmosphere, but the food makes up for it. Joy, my server, was attentive and quick. I think the menu has great choices, wish I could have had the shrimp ettoffue which looked delicious. Mid priced, not break the bank expensive. I would come back.

Lunch with friends was a huge success. I had the 2 crab cake salad which was delicious. It came with greens, capers, onions, cherry tomatoes, avocado, blue cheese and nuts. In addition the bread was great as well, although I would have enjoyed a second piece which was what you usually get and I didn't think to ask for more.... More

We have used North Star for catering and for dining out, and they are wonderful people to deal with. They put a lot of thought into the catering part of the business, and the results are always very good. The Bistro itself is a special place to go: not too loud, nicely laid out space, and waiters who put the... More

The bartender was amazing. He was very attentive and helpful with the menu. Everything we had was great. Happy hour until 630 with 50% off apps. Food was great.

A lunch that was supposed to be in celebration of team support turned into an "ok" meal with great conversation. The salad special of the day had no flavor, was very small and within an hour or two I was really hungry. One of the other salads lacked a variety of ingredients, had little dressing and was generally blah. I... More

I've been here now for lunch, brunch and dinner. This place never disappoints. You don't know what to expect, since it's in a little strip with other businesses, but inside it it tastefully decorated with knowledgeable staff and a fantastic menu. some of the favs among our group of 8 included: the friend mozzarella, ravioli and scallops, spare ribs and...

I have been to the Bistro for several lunches and the food and service have always been excellent. Every one of their salads is wonderful, the personal pizzas are good and the fall special with squash and chicken was fabulous. The wait staff is always very attentive and the restaurant is very clean.
