“Good meal and excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Visited Bistro 25 on Mother's Day, had a very pleasant experience. We were a party of four, all had different entree's and they were all very good. The appetizers were delicious and entree portions were perfect. Did not leave hungry.

“Well served, good food, well priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

It's about to snow and not wanting to drive all the way to Southampton from Great Neck we found this really lovely spot about 1/2 way out. The menu is fairly extensive and very well priced. The staff did an excellent job of making us feel welcome and served us well.

It's now on my short list of places to return to.

“Good food-good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

This is a casual restaurant with a sparsely decorated but neat dining room. The food is moderately priced and quite good, with very nice presentation. The main wine list has approximately 25 bottles, each priced at $25. A separate group of about 7 wines is slightly more expensive. The menu, while not huge, is diverse and can cover most tastes. My seafood paella was excellent. The restaurant provides very good value for the money.

“Tasty meal during restaurant week”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

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.
