I can not rave about The Bistro enough. Everything on the menu is amazing. The location, the view, the service, the atmosphere- this place has it all. A farm to table atmosphere featuring local ingredients and a great bar selection! Highly recommend

Some different dishes that were ok yet did not quite meet "foodie" expectations. Prob one of the best options on Topsail and I would try it again. Very nice atmosphere on back deck.

The Bistro opened this year. It cost us 165 for 3 people. It was good eatin. Presentation of the food is like a 4 or 5 star restaurant. They are closed on Sunday's and you need a reservation.

This recently relocated restaurant is pretty expensive for what you get. My fish was over cooked but still good. Shrimp and grits good but not enough shrimp. Go with a big wallet, $28 was average price of most meals.

The new location (formerly Cheri's) is great for this restaurant. The decor is simple and fresh, and really lets the view of the water take center stage. Best meal we had during our week at Surf City. Small menu, but fresh, seasonal and creative. So...More
