This combination cinema-restaurant offers pre-movie service right at your seats. The bar-style food offerings are pretty ordinary, but it was fun to be served, then munch away as the movie plays on. I did have a good mojito, which I was able nurse along for about the first one-third of Rogue One. The picture and sound quality of the film... More

The ambiance is very nice here. The bartender was friendly. We arrived 5 minutes prior to the start of the movie, so we had to order our drinks and food at the bar and pick it up ourselves instead of having a waiter/waitress serve us. This was my 1st time here so I am hoping our tardiness is what caused... More

We decided to finally come watch a movie here, and I will say it was a very nice time. They do have a full bar, and of course all the movie concessions and a menu as well. The theaters are on the smaller end but more on the intimate side, which is nice if you're on a date. I will... More

I live a block and a half from this theater. I avoided going there literally for years. I don't know why. Finally, my wife and I went and have now returned numerous times. Other than for special kids movies, it's all adult, with cushy, rocking reserved seats. The food and drink menu is extensive -- accommodating to meat eaters and... More

I had mixed emotions about CineBistro due to the wide variety of comments on tripadvisor. But, I decided to try it out with an open mind. WOW, was I glad I went. The decor was high class. The wait staff was attentive, patient, cordial, and very accommodating. I was impressed right out of the gate. I had the Bistro Burger... More

I was really expecting a lot from this place after the reviews I saw on here. Walking in, it is very welcoming. Nice decor and nice bar/lounge area to sit in before the meal. The theater itself is pretty nice and the chairs are pretty comfortable. I've been to several other theaters that have "comfortable seating" and were way nicer... More

Great new way to enjoy movies: the place offers very good food, you have to be there about 30 minutes prior to the movie starting time to place the order. The seats are very comfortable. You can drink alcohol! The food was very good but not excellent but the overall experience make this place unique. Some warnings: only 21 year... More

Very nice cinema experience. The seats were very comfortable and the food and drinks were very good. It was also nice not to has little kids and teenagers. It was a little pricey but a nice evening overall.

This "eat/drink" movie theatre is fun for a one-time visit, but it is expensive. The house special cheeseburger with fries was about $16. The burger was OK; the fries were cold. A friend had the cobb salad.....mostly iceberg lettuce. Mac and cheese was quite salty. Drinks (wine and alcohol) are very pricey and quite small. Seats are large and moderately... More
