“Evening to remember”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

Had a magnificent time, went with a group of 5 on a Sunday around 8. We were seated immediately by the male manager/host. We had Erin as our server. She was so sweet and genuine, recommended very nice dishes including the mussels; which had way more than 8 mussels. I thoroughly enjoyed the snapper as my entree. Service, food, and experience were all impeccable. Only complaint would be the volume of the music outside and inside a bit overwhelming at times. Will return,would recommend.

“friendly warm excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

our visit to your bistro was exceptional. Our waiter JD was very friendly. He was very focused on his job and customers and made everyone around him comfortable. When we visit again we will be sure to ask to sit at his tables. Thank you for a great experience.

“Average, but has potential and room to grow”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014 via mobile

Brule Bistro has a nice feel to it, staff is friendly enough also. I went in with a group of 5, started off with some tapas and cocktails. From the onset, something I did notice was the lack of attentiveness from the server. Food came out, smaller portions, but that kinda goes along with tapas. Tapas were good, group decided the avocado was the tables favorite. We also ordered entrees, speed of delivery was good. Regarding the entrees, I would rate them at 3 they were okay, but certainly not anything to stand out from other fair. My pet peeve is, you shouldn't have to continually be asking to have water glasses refilled by wait staff. This was a continual theme of the night, along with having to ask server for things that they should do without having to be prompted by guests. All in all, Service rated at 1.5, Food 3, atmosphere 4.5. If Management could put together a better front of house, and step up food a notch, this place could really develop into something.

“Better choices abound”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

We had dessert and coffee at this bistro New Year's Eve. It was very nice and that led us to the mistake of going there for dinner with out of town guests. At dinner, we felt this place to be pretentious, overpriced, noisy and a poor value for money. Further, the staff was arrogant and unhelpful when we complained about various issues. I was upset enough with the experience to write a letter to the proprietor enumerating those issues. I never received a response. The main issue was value for money. They charged more than the going rate for an appetizer portion of mussels and served eight (8) mussels! Typically my wife orders this dish at competing restaurants in the area as it is always a large portion that can be her main course. When we questioned the manager, she reduced the price after some argument but it was still not a good value.
We would not go back.

“Great Lunch Option”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2014

I absolutely love this bistro. I would recommend it to anyone looking to grab a quick bite. The food is fresh and light. My favorite lunch item is the turkey club.
