Alex is a superb host and along with his staff, takes great care of each and every diner. The decor and ambience is tasteful and refined. The food is excellent and the wine list extensive. Bishops is perfect for friends, family, or date night.

This Italian restaurant is a real gem. It’s incredibly small but not quiet so you do still feel detached from everyone else. The place is divided by two rooms, the entrance/bar has snacks waiting for your arrival and a fine selection of wines, beers and...More
