We stopped on a Sunday and ordered from the brunch menu. My husband had a soup special - spicy black bean with chorizo - which was excellent with just the right amount of spice. He also had the Cuban panini which came on bakery quality foccacia bread with shoestring French Fries. I had the House Salad - baby spinach greens... More

Loved the wings and fries! The waitstaff is great, I enjoyed talking to them and how friendly they are. I can't wait to go back. Some places say when you're here you're family, but got a really great vibe from them. Everyone enjoyed working there and made my visit extremely welcoming. It's right off the highway in Yarmouth, such a... More

Wonderful food...the chef periodically walks through the restaurant to make sure that everyone is happy...their meat loaf is the best!

We stopped for lunch to see what it was like. We gave it a chance and were pleasantly surprised. The french fries are the best I have had in a long time. We also had a Rueben sandwich and a spinach and goat cheese wrap and they were outstanding. Although the prices were a bit higher than we intended to... More

We had a great experience at Bistro 233. The waiter was great. The drinks were good. We had several appetizers. All were delicious. Dinner was very good. One in our party designed her own sandwich and they were happy to make it. Great night out!

My husband and I went to lunch here for the first time. Our server, Jerry, could not have been more friendly and accommodating. The restaurant is a cozy, clean and quaint little place. It was very clean and the staff made us feel right at home. I ordered a bistro burger, which was one of the best burgers I have... More

The food is always very good here and for some reason the best fries ever and I'm not a lover of French fries. This is a top secret spot for those in the know and you truly can't go wrong with anything you order, promise!

Dinner last night was excellent! We started with garlic knots (very light and airy, not at all greasy), I had the jambalaya and my husband had the prime rib, both were excellent. My only issue was that I over heard the waitress say 'Chocolate Lava Cake' so I couldn't eat much dinner... However the cake ended up being the highlight... More
