Bistro 157 was always, though expensive, hands down, the finest restaurant in Valpo. Old timers and new comers all agreed, as well as visitors from Chicago. But recently, some serious glitches have occurred. In August our party of six waited nearly two hours for our entrees and then one was in error. Granted, the mistake was corrected and a dessert was comped but the delay was ridiculous. We had ordered appetizers and drinks but we were VERY hungry. In September, our party of four took advantage of the 5 for $5.00 menu offered by 5 of the downtown restaurants and ordered from an attractive special menu at 157. Imagine our chagrin when the Kir Royals arrived sans cassis. We sent them back to be properly mixed but, I ask you, shorting on the drinks!!! My, my. Since then several others have commented that something is awry, as if attention is not focused where it should be (and always was in the past).
