“This place can't be beat for watching a movie...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

This is a great place to go watch a movie. They have some of the most comfortable and large seating you will find in a movie theater. The seats are set up in pairs, so you get a more intimate experience. What we like is that it's reserved seating, so we can buy our tickets a week before, a day before, or even the day of, and we have our seats waiting when we get there. No more fighting for the best seats in the theater.

The food is really good, but you will pay for it. You're paying for the convenience of eating in a movie theater, so there's not much competition around to compare prices to. If you are going to eat there, get to the theater at least 30 min before the movie starts, because the service stops once the previews end.

You don't HAVE to eat there though. You can just go and watch a movie and get some popcorn and/or snacks.I will say, they have the best popcorn of any theater I've been to. And the popcorn and drinks are unlimited refills!

Another nice thing is that they have a full bar outside in the lobby/lounge area. You can have a few drinks before and during the movie. Because of this, the theater is 21 and up only. This is nice, because there are no screaming babies or teenagers horsing around. It's a great adult atmosphere that is perfect for watching movies!

“Awesome Classy Movie Night Experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

I enjoy the dine in & movie theater experience and typically visit Fork & Screen or Studio Movie Grill however, we wanted to try a new location at CineBistro exceeded my expectations!

Venue: It has a wonderful hotel/lounge look & feel. You walk in a confirm or purchase ticketing. Note: We bought our tickets ahead of time on Fandango.

The lounge has great seating & a bar where you order your food.

The theater seating has great oversized leather seats and swivel tables.

The bathrooms are clean & elegant!

Menu: This is the best movie menu I've ever seen! Instead of pizza, burgers they offer restaurant food including steak burgers, salmon & salads!
My date had a steak burger which he thought was dry & had fake cheese. I however had a beam burger with sweet potato fries.
(They offer a choice of regular or sweet potato).

Parking: Parking close can be challenging since the building is in a shopping center. But, there's plenty of parking.

Love this place!

Cons: You have to arrive at least 20 minutes earlier than the movie because you receive a pager after ordering your food at the bar and then you have to carry your food into the theater and locate your seat.
The tables also have no additional low lighting to see your food.

“Great Place$$$”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This place is very very nice. New shopping place. You are able to pick your seats for the movie. The place has a full bar and lounge area. Someone comes and takes your order when you sit down. The seats are very comfortable. Two burgers, two drinks $50+

“Best. Movie theater. Ever.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Easily the best movie theater that I've ever been to. I typically take a wary approach to theaters that also serve food, as the dining aspect is usually overlooked, and tends to be glorified concession stand food. Cinebistro is definitely the exception. Not only is the theater atmosphere great, with a modern lobby, spacious chairs and online seat reservations, but the dinner menu could be at a restaurant. Plenty of choices, and everything we've tried has been great. It's really a lot of fun to have a bottle of wine with a movie...and this definitely simplifies dinner and a movie. No reason to go to another theater.

“My own personal theater!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

Went because of the ability to reserve seats... Super bonus on a Saturday night for a high demand movie. Will return again and again because of the beautiful setting, awesome seating, big-big screen, cool bar, and great service. Didn't eat this time but based on all the selections around us... We will take advantage of the
variety of delicious looking options on the menu. Did I mention the big leather cushie seats!!!
