Fantastic food and great service , we have been to this little gem several times in the past and have always enjoyed our meal. Prices are pretty great for the culinary care taken to prepare meals, even the side items ! My husband and I dined with them tonight and had Lobster stuffed Grouper with a wine sauce on angel...

O'Brien's Bistro is always a wonderful place for fine dining. - I met 3 friends there this afternoon for lunch (I had my 2 year old grandson in tow!) and had the best time. DOUG was our waiter. He was so kind and extremely efficient. He saw that my grandson was getting hungry and brought him chicken nuggets and chips... More

Been here 3 times in last 3 months, all casual business dinners. Tonite I had Elk and it was so tender, very flavorful. The server was completely open to substitutions and offered alternatives.

Located in a strip mall but excellent food. Good selection of bottle beer (no draft) with a wide ranging menu of choices. Three of us has the evening special, flounder, that was a good very good choice. Don't pass on the Key Lime Pie!

I found this restaurant by a grouping deal! The food was very finely cooked. The waiter was so nice. I never realized this was a fine French restaurant till later, but since I was on vacation I went here to eat. It was so worth it.

I was lucky enough to be included in a dinner party at this restaurant. New to Pensacola, I could easily have overlooked this restaurant--in a small strip shopping center, nestled in the corner. Plenty of parking and easy access from the main drag. We started with the baked brie and a sweet pecan topping, lots of fresh bread and lovely... More

Went there with a party of 7...took 45 min to get food. Food was good...but 9.50 (11.50 with tip) for a chicken sandwich and a handful of chips seemed a bit pricey. Servers were friendly. This was the KICKER! The table next to us was being set for a party...I kid you not...the plates/napkins/glasses/silverware were on the table and a... More

What a great evening! Our server, Micah, was fantastic start to finish! The filet with green peppercorn sauce came recommended and did not disappoint. It was cooked perfectly. My husband ordered the Elk special for the evening. He loved it! Wonderful experience. We will return!

The dinner was incredible. I had the seared ahi with a corn and andouille stuffing with red and yellow pepper sauce topped with lump crab. My husband had the duck breast with raspberry sauce which was perfect. The black bean soup is unbelievable.

Thank Cmdrzzz
