“Wonderful lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

First visit. Had the oyster and shrimp po' boy. Not your typical deep fried po' boy. An unexpected, but delightful presentation. Oysters were deliciously prepared with light, light batter and shrimp was prepared with no batter and apple slaw was a unique taste. Excellent atmosphere and service.

“Delicious, cool, and hospitable!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

We ate at the bar, and our bartender was like our new friend. His wine recommendations were great. He had the kitchen prepare a flight of desserts as we were undecided about what to order. Shrimp and grits and grilled fish were really good. BEEF was GREAT!!!! We saw a famous Florida author known for his outrageous story lines and ecological messages. We had a wonderful time. Oh, and prices were reasonable for the quality!

“More work to do before a five!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

Food was a solid five with service no better than a two. Our server lacked good waiter skills. Once our order was taken we were forgotten between each course with excessively long time gaps between each course.

“Delightful Setting, Satisfying Lunch, Pleasant Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

We were looking for a pleasant, casual but high quality, moderately priced setting to meet up for lunch with parents who live in Florida some distance from where we were staying. Based on our TripAdvisor research, the Osceola Bistro looked like it would satisfy the need perfectly, with a nice lunch menu (appetizers, salads, soup, sandwiches and desert).

We could not have been more pleased! Service was excellent, the food was well-prepared American lunch fare, and the setting was conducive to catching up on news. Sound quality (in the garden area) was good for folks with some hearing impairment. If you like chocolate deserts, the flourless choclate torte will put a smile on your face!

(The garden area is also dog-friendly, although we did not see any dogs during our visit, there was a water bowl ready to great them too!)

Warning: If you are not familiar with the area, note that this is ***on 13th AVENUE***, NOT 13th Street (both exist). If you get lost, just ask for directions to the Vero Beach post office and the restaurant is right across the street.
