My girlfriend and I visited Bistro 25 on a Sunday night during Long Island restaurant week. As we walked in we were warmly greeted by an older gentleman who we assumed was the owner (or at least a manager). After we were seated he was very friendly and helpful in answering our questions and pointing out his favorite items on the menu. The waitstaff were kind and attentive but not overbearing.
We ordered from the LI restaurant week 3 course menu. For appetizers we had the butternut bisque and mussels, these were the stars of the evening, my girlfriend nearly licked the bisque bowl clean and I loved the mussels (particularly the broth that came with them). For the main course we had the sauerbraten (a beef dish with potato pancakes and braised cabbage) and the pan roasted salmon. This course was good, the beef was very tender and flavorful and the salmon was cooked properly. For dessert we had the carrot cake bread pudding and mango sorbet. These were a solid way to finish a nice meal.
Overall we had a great experience and will return for another meal. We experienced none of the service issues that other reviewers have mentioned but dined early on a Sunday evening.
