This was our first trip to highly-rated C LEVEL BISTRO & WINE BAR. Having greatly enjoyed A TABLE APART, another highly-rated restaurant in the same area, we wanted to give C LEVEL BISTRO & WINE BAR a try.

It's a modern, cozy place with a long bar and multiple small tables indoors, as well as several tables outside. We sat at the bar, which has a large-screen TV and nice blue lighting accents. The English owner is hands-on, always a good sign.

We were the first indoor patrons on the day of our dine and sat at the bar. The restaurant filled in gradually afterwards. The waitress was very friendly, but we had to ask for water and wine refills, as well as for the bill after the dine: The service would have rated excellent otherwise.

During "Happy Hour", the house wines are $5/glass. As a wine afficionado, I can say that they are better than the run-of-the-mill offerings one typically encounters. Moreover, they're served in stemware that is appropriate for the type of varietal being served, another good sign. Moreover, the pours are fairly generous.

We had an excellent seafood pate appetizer, which came with tasty rye bread.

For our entrees, we had the SEARED CHILEAN SEA BASS (with fresh herbs and EVOO) and the MAPLE LEAF FARMS' CRISPY 1/2 DUCK (with raspberry demi-glace and wild rice blend).
Both were superb. The mild, flaky sea bass was gently and tastefully seasoned -- in contrast to most places, which over-season this fish to the point that it's hard to taste the actual fish. Likewise, the duck was excellent -- on par with that at CIBAO in the Neapolitan Plaza. These entrees are expensive ($32 each), but they came with a wide variety of fresh veggies -- much more generous than the few asparagus spears, etc., that one typically gets in a high-end restaurant. Hence, I would have to say that the entrees were well worth it. C LEVEL BISTRO & WINE BAR is a place worth returning to whenever you have the desire for a well-made meal.

Went wih another couple.1st.time. We had called for reservations,and specfically asked about Happy Hour offerings.After we were seated,right next to the bar,the waitress said we could only have the $5 items if we sat at the bar or outside.She was pleasant,but the food was expensive,and did not meet our expectations. We will not be back.

Is this, it did not live up to the reviews or I wanted a cheap deal??? This reviewer seemingly was unhappy that he could not get Happy Hour prices whilst sitting at one of our limited tables, this when we clearly promote Happy Hour at the bar and outside only, like most restaurants. I have looked at this reviewers receipt and noticed that he was given Happy Hour prices by myself, so why the complaint. I also noticed that he sent back a steak, after eating most of it, claiming is was overcooked, this was removed completely from his bill, in fact the whole bill was full of deductions.

We offer great food at a fair price, there are plenty of second rate places charging high prices and if this reviewer wants a cheap deal, he better look elsewhere. . This review is really price motivated, we will not be lowering our prices just to accommodate this reviewer. There are too many full paying customers wanting his table.

This was the best dinning experience I have had in Florida, we eat at several restaurants and this was the best, the food, the service and the ambience were all prefect. We had the Duck and WOW, I have never eaten better. Can't wait to return.

Dont expect small dishes, but the quality is there. Had caprese salad and ahi tuna, both great and very substantial. Good wine list, plenty of choices by bottle and glass. Welcoming people and atmosphere. Worth going, later in evening good.
