Too formal for a bistro

I was a bit thrown off when we walked into the Southside Bistro for it is neither small nor informal. There seemed to be a dozen natty dressed wait staff manning the place with a look of formal dining. We just wanted a simple meal on the go. I ordered pizza -- duck sausage and fennel-- excellent... read more

The menu lists many excellent choices, and those that my daughter and I had were delicious. Prices were inline with Alaska..

Yep, it's worth the long drive and handling roundabouts for this downtown gal to make the 6 mile trip to visit the South Side Bistro. The atmosphere was great, the servers appeared happy to see us, and they were helpful in our selections. The pricing was competitive, and I surely recommend the SouthSide Bistro for diners near and far.

After work birthday celebration! All the menu and specials items ordered were delightful! The Alaskan Cod Succotash was soooo satisfying!. At the end of the night....we all had to separate our own tabs from one bill. Took away from the enjoyment just so the staff could he guaranteed the 18% group tip. Bet our group tip would have exceeded the... More

We went to the Southside Bistro to celebrate my daughter's birthday. Everything we ordered was delicious and reasonably priced. Our favorite appetizer was the steamer clams. My husband thought the wedge salad was the best he has had. The ribeye steak was seasoned and cooked perfectly. I enjoyed the shrimp and scallop meal. It is a little noisy but I... More

Tomato soup and truffled fries were excellent. The garlic mashed potatoes had pieces of roasted garlic - wonderful! Looking forward to coming back for more tomato soup. Almost forgot the fresh hot crusty bread.

I decided to treat my son and I to a casual evening so I ordered out rather than cooking. We got burgers and nachos. The burgers were really good. The meat was cooked to perfection and they were delicious. Although I don't know what the burgers cost as 2 burgers and 1 order of nachos were $44.00. The website did... More

Had Saturday lunch with friends. Only thing missing were the bread plates. Service was good, although it wasn't clear why we couldn't get separate tickets. Plan to check them out for dinner.
