“delicious food and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

My husband and I were looking to eat at a restaurant near 9th ave as we going to a movie afterwards. We were tired of the regular "chain" ones and read the reviews of this one. We were so happy with our choice to try it out. The atmosphere was very nice, cozy, and the best part it was quiet. So many restaurants are so noisy with tables close to one another. We both had seafood entrees and salads which were well prepared and very tasty. Our server was very attentive. We know we'll be there often on our "date nights" as it was just a perfect place and it was great to have some "new" choices with the chef's specials.

“So-o incredibly good- should be in the Top10 in Pensacola”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

This casual little neighborhood restaurant with upscale menu and food is so overlooked and underestimated. The food is perfection, everything fresh & perfectly prepared. The soups are wonderful and the chef makes all of them. The service is excellent and servers are very knowledgable about the menu and food. It's not fancy (except for the food and service) but is cozy and welcoming; the perfect place for fine dining in an unpretentious atmosphere. Go...you'll be happy you did!

“Wonderful food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Probably one of Pensacola's best kept secrets. The only thing that keeps us from dinning here more often is the price, it is upscale dinning though located in a strip mall. Food is always perfectly prepared from lamb chops to venison and sea scallops. Great wine list as well. Definitely check this place out for a special date night.

“My personal fave”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

O'Briens Bistro, on Bayou blvd near Cordova Mall is an incredible restaurant. The service is incredibly friendly and professional and the food is out of this world. The chef is a magician with sauces and soups. If you live here, or are visiting, this restaurant is a must.

“Exceptional Food in a modest location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Don't be fooled by the location. This chef-owner establishment is consistently a winner. The imaginative daily specials are hard to resist. Meals are prepared to order and cooked to perfection. The soups are amazing. The ambiance is very classy - a great place for a date or special occasion, without breaking the bank.
