Exceeded My Expectations

Based on a lot of the reviews I didn't expect this to be a great meal but I was pleasantly surprised. This was a day set aside for my 8-year old niece....shopping, lunch and an appointment with the doll hairdresser. I had a nice time but my niece rates this experience as a 10. About the... read more

I took my daughter and mother to tea at the American Girl bistro on New Year's Day. They enjoyed each other's company but the experience there is rushed and not pleasant. It's cute that the bistro provides clip on chairs for the dolls. The hot water for tea was hot but the food that was supposed to be warm was... More

This cafe is such a treat for the kids and adults! It fun and the food and service is great. This location beats the NYC one, it's far less crowded and easier to get reservations.

Took my daughter here, we had never been and knew it was going to be pricey, but we wanted a girly day :) the entree portions were generous sizes, and everything we ate was surprising great! The waitress addressed my daughter by name and it really made her feel special. We didn't have dessert there, we went shopping and got... More

The AG PR for the Bistro says to come in for a "casual bite" to eat. I read enough of the other reviews to expect small portions, and an underwhelming experience where the Dolls have top billing! WOW! I am not sure why people think the portions are small. One of our party of four had the salmon over orzo,... More

I would have given this 3 (average) over 2 (poor) if it weren't for the price. My 7 year old & I went while spending some time at the store. It was an early Friday so not too crowded. It's $16.50 per person, and only have a kids menu for under age 4. She got the tic,tac,toe pizza which was... More

If you and your little girl can get past the $100+ dolls and $50+ accessories for the three centuries worth of doll clothing, doll furniture, doll pets, doll sports equipment, books and toys, then you're in for a treat at the Bistro. Weekends are crazy busy but weekdays are manageable. I went for lunch with my 6 year old grand... More

Our family of 4 visited for lunch today. We drove from Buffalo, NY on the way to the Cape. My 9- year old daughter had been looking forward to going to the store and we made lunch reservations. We were seated within 10 minutes of checking in. Our server was friendly enough. There is no kids' menu per we, just... More
