Great atmosphere, just like a bistro in Paris. Excellent food. Attentive and efficient service. Great martini. The best "twist" ever. I had the bartender show me the tool he used to make this foot long twist.

Went to this restaurant for our anniversary and it didn't disappoint. From the service, staff and food it was top notch. We stayed at the Hyatt and this was 5 minutes away.

Lone Birch Winery is a family owned and operated winery located in the Yakima Valley in Washington State. The wines tasted that evening included a dry and fruity Pinot Gris, an average Chardonnay, a poorly defined Cabernet Sauvignon, a very... More

We were referred here by a friend for dinned and were very pleased. Service was excellent. Salads were great. My husband really liked his fish and my pork was reasonable though not a redo. It is a hard reservation so plan ahead!

Solicitous service, delicious food - carefully prepared with excellent ingredients, and decor to bring you to a corner of France on the Eastern Shore. What more could you ask for?

Based on TripAdvisor rankings, we gave Bistro Poplar a try. Wow! I was expecting small plate, artisan portions but was impressed with both the incredible quality and portion sizes. Very fulfilling! Bibb salad was layered succulent leaves, lightly dressed, with surprising amount of lump crab and flavorful, tender heirloom grape tomatoes from the pastry chef's garden. Oyster appetizer was equally... More

Quiet atmosphere, wonderful service and the best restaurant meal I can remember. It was a nice sized portion of salmon. Not so much I had to take some home but left room for dessert. (I actually used my bread to clean the sauce from the plate.) I had Creme Brûlée for dessert, also a nice sized portion. It is a... More
