“Better than we expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

We were tired from a long day of travel and did not have a reservation, but we were able to sit outside. I asked how big various items were. As we tried to decide what to order, the waiter suggested we split a Caesar salad. Perfect. We were also allowed to split an entree. The only negative is the waiter forgot to bring the small boule of bread but I asked another wait person and it was quickly brought. Very good crusty bread.
If we lived there, I would go back.

“Wonderful food, great location, only one problem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

This restaurant would have received a '5-star' rating if not for a small mistake... one of our entrees was put into the computer wrong (our waiter was extremely apologetic) and when the correct one came out, the rest of our party had finished eating. This can happen, although it shouldn't, so we'd certainly return. Salads were plentiful, entrees were delicious, service (other than the mistake) was great. For a late dinner on a Saturday, it seemed that parking in the huge mall lot was difficult, but we were told that the multi-screen movie theater in the mall was the problem. We really had to do a lot of searching for a parking spot.

“not impressed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

My friend & I visited bistro 41 on January 11 around 11:30am for their $10 lunch special. There were 3 other tables that were seated. The hostess seated us right away. We then waited about 5 minutes to be greeted & take over drink orders. The food was OK, nothing special. We both found it to be on the bland side. I had the Asian wrap & chicken soup. There was no real Asian feel to the wrap. My friend had the turkey croissant & french onion. We then waited what seemed like forever to get our check & pay. Seemed like they were short staffed. The restaurant got very busy & servers were running all around with less than a pleasant attitude. With so many surrounding options to eat at, I would highly recommend trying somewhere else.

“3course with bottle of wine (40$)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

A friend told us of this very special restaurant. We were at Bell Tower Mall and decided to give them a try. Fantastic meal/ bread/ and yes a free bottle of wine. We had several brands to choose from. Now, normally we don't drink a whole bottle of wine during a meal ( meds you know). But, we had such a great time with the food, music, & great waiters etc, we didn't realize we "drank the whole thing" we walked it off around the mall, and luckily we only live a few blocks away.

“Beautiful place and beautiful food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

What an enjoyable eating experience! I wish I lived closer so I could go more often. My salad was fantastic and I really enjoy the upscale feeling of the place.
