I had wanted to try this place out for some time, and we finally made it a priority to get it off the bucket list in 2016 making a special trip over. The menu is limited, but they did have some good selections. I opted for the black angus and the GF for the chicken. Both meals were exceptional. Every... More

Service was good, food was okay, but nothing special. Filet doesn’t even compare to ones I’ve had at good steakhouses.

We had a very romantic anniversary dinner at The Bistro. Tana our waitress, was outstanding. The food was comparable to the best restaurants in Rome! The recommendations were spot on. We are so fortunate to have this restaurant in St. Joseph!

We had dinner on the terrace on a beautiful summer evening. The atmosphere, service, and food were perfect. I am a big eater and we still took home left overs. I had a shrimp dinner and my wife had salmon. If the weather allows it eat outside.

My husband and I were staying at the hotel and decided to eat one dinner here. One dinner turned into 3. The first meal was so good that we had to come back and try more. The desert is esp amazing. So much so that we would order an extra one from room service. They had a good selection of... More

Joined several friends for summer dinner. Ordered the special and at first was served an over cooked fish and when we complained we were served a barely cooked Ono. Service was mediocre and I remain at a loss why a restaurant with such a great setting cannot get it together with respect to the food and service. Regret not following... More

We have loved the Bistro and even had our rehearsal dinner here. We went regularly prior to the renovation and new chef. The entire restaurant needs to refine what they are doing or just start over. The overall theme for food was that it was UNseasoned - no salt, no flavor. My halibut looked pretty, but it was over cooked,... More
