I had a business lunch meeting and it was nicely accommodating for that setting. She had jalapeño and crab soup and salad that was reported to be very good while I ate fish tacos… Some of the best I've had. Our waiter was very good and provided exceptional service. It was wonderful he decorated for the holidays, so the mood... More

We had the she crab soup, lunch grouper over fried spinach and home made chips, special flounder wraps, and the fish tacos with remoulade. Everything was wonderful. We shared the... More

Had tried a few years ago to enjoy this spot but couldn't make it happen. This year we made it. Dinner was exceptional. The Veal Piccata was great. Service was impeccable and while the patio was crowded and a little noisy, the evening was delightful. We will be back.

We visit this spot about once a month. Food and service are always good. Wine list is not extensive but has some good choices. Whatever seafood is fresh, is always good.

It was obvious to me the fryer was set under 375 degrees when the calamari was sort of limp. Who ever made the crab cakes loved the salt shaker. In the restaurant's defense when I sent them back they took it off the bill. Incidentally, the Bloody Mary was not spectacular. Jo said salmon was excellent but portabella was salted... More

We had lunch at Bistro 217 in October 2016. The food was excellent (I recommend the scallops) We enjoyed sitting outside on the patio. The service was good. Make sure to try this place if you are in the area. There is also a sister restaurant next door. Great break near the coast!
