The service was the best I've had in a long time. They had plenty of gluten-free options and their food was quite tasty and reasonably priced.

Read reviews on this restaurant; very good or very bad, not much in between. However, the location next to the Majestic Theater and menu convinced us to try it out. Jessie our waiter was great, very informative with suggestions, and not pushy. The house wine (white and red) was very good. My wife had the pork chop and I had... More

I liked everything about this place and what a find located in a hotel in a tourist city. Use it as a guest or as stop while walking Houston Street.

Wonderful place, perfect service and great food quality. And all this for a very good price. 100% recommend if you wanna try something different during labor days.

We stopped at the Bistro because the menu was outside and saw many options. The waiter gave us daily specials and we decided to dine. Houston Street can be noisy with bus traffic, trucks and trolleys so we opted to dine inside. I had the Salmon Salad. PERFECTION! Salmon was thick cut and seared perfectly on a bed of greens....

Not wanting to wait for a spot at a restaurant along the River Walk, I happened to find this place (beside the Starbucks where I got my morning coffee.) It was quiet, relaxed and very prompt service. The fresh hot bread was good, and my main course was very satisfying. An excellent choice if you want to get away from... More

Several plus points, proximity to Majestic & Empire Theatres, reservations before show is a must. Food and service (ask for Jesse's station) were excellent, not rushed, very attenttive. Definite repeat is on the agenda.

Good food at a location close to the Riverwalk without being overrun like many River front places. We enjoyed lunch with good service and then grabbed a coffee at Starbucks right next door...

Visiting from out of state and wanted a nice steak dinner for Valentines weekend. Instead of fighting the crowds on actual V-day, we went the night after. Not sure if that was the problem...or what? The sum of the evening was this. The Manager acted strangely the whole night, wandering the restaurant as if he were concerned about something..., they... More
