I am tired of giving this place another try. This last time I went I ordered duck breast. Never have I been served such a disgusting plate of food. The duck was grey all the way through. Completely overdone. The skin was limp and greasy instead of crispy and flavorful. The sauce was a goopy gravy with no flavor.

Some of the meals in our large party were good. The scallops, salmon & prime rib all got good reviews. The trout & Southwest tacos weren't so good. It should have been superb based on the prices. The wait staff were attentive & the setting is very nice.

Fantastic service..friendly and fast. Best steak in Amarillo hands down. The cost is a bit high but for special occasions it is great. They do have meals under $15 though.

Wear your nice clothes here so you'll fit in! This is a perfect romantic date place and also perfect for a business lunch. The food is spectacular! Just reading the menu makes your mouth water! The bar drinks and wine list is very good and runs from moderately priced to *pricey*. Make sure that you call for reservations for special... More

BL Bistro is one of our favorite Amarillo restaurants. Food is always good and beautifully presented, tasty and innovative. The facility is classy and inviting and is a good place to go for a nice dinner. We always enjoy our meals---lunch, dinner, or brunch---at BL.

My husband and I have eaten here several times in the last few weeks, and every time we have had great service and good food.. We have had the pecan salmon and regular salmon, as well as a Bistro salad, crab wontons and a mimosa on a Sunday brunch.. All very good. I would recommend a visit👍

We are always impressed with the degree of professionalism consistently shown by Patrick as he attends to our large party. Smallest details are not overlooked.

The salmon was good, green beans were excellent. Hubby's fish was good also and salad was ok for $5. Service was attentive for a Saturday evening. Two suggestions for improvement: some type of pre-meal bread, a dessert tray so you could see what you are ordering or at least a menu to see pricing. Creme brûlée was ok but I've... More
