“Greasy food!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

We've tried this restaurant twice for lunch and were disapointed each time. When we first tried them this summer we went for lunch and my wife ordered the lunch special and I ordered the smoked meat sandwich with a soup.

We found that everything was overly cooked with butter. It was just too much. Lunch is suppose to be light and healthy. There was nothing healthy in our plates in the exception of my wifes side salad.

The bread that comes with the soup is buttery throughout. Same thing for the sandwich, there is so much butter on the breads if you squeeze it just a bit you see the butter coming out. I know they want flavor in there food but, it's just too much.

We tought we give them another shot this fall. To our surprise same thing again. My wife had the lobster crepe special. It was ok but, yet again, very rich sauce inside. I had the steak melt sandwich or something like that. Like my previous visit, the bread was buttery throughout once again.

Anyway, the point I'm trying to make is when you go for lunch and you order a soup and sandwich you expect light healthy foods that will not take all afternoon to digest.

Dear Marty93,

Thanks for taking the time to write up a comment about our bistro. We are truly sorry that your experience with us was not what you expected it to be. Might I just take a minute to offer a solution so that if you decide to visit us again, we'll be better equipped to serve your needs.

For our paninis, we are glad to offer them to you oil-free and oven toasted only. We can even offer them not toasted at all. For other healthy lunch choices on our menu, one may try our salmon burger served on a ciabatta bun, our portobello burger (these two items can also be served without bread upon request) and our curry chicken sandwich. All of these can be served with our salads and soups.

Finally, all our menu items can also be served gluten and dairy free upon request (including our delicious pastas)

Hope these alternatives can put us back on your 'we love this restaurant' list!

Best regards, Isabelle Cormier

The food here is terrific! Everything is made fresh... there's no "popping things in the microwave" at this place. Service was great too and the decor gets nicer and nicer every time we go!

“Delightful restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Was sheer luck that we saw this restaurant and went on TA to see if there were any comments before trying. It is very close to the Holiday Inn, Dieppe where we stayed so we decided to try one evening.

Ambience is really nice, background music wonderful and food was very well prepared and reasonably priced. We really enjoyed this little Bistro and certainly would return as I would like to try more of the menu (our next trip to Moncton).

They also advertise a cooking and tasting session on Sundays which would be worth trying.

We did recommend to our friends who live in the area to give Bistro 33 a try.
