We ate at Bistro 14 three times during our 2 weeks on LBI. We love this restaurant! The seafood is fresh and delicious. We love oysters and they have a great selection. One night we ate 5 dozen oysters as our meal. In addition the halibut, clams, crab claws, seafood combo and boulliabaise were sampled. While eating, the beautiful sunset over the bay is visible from many inside seats and the balcony. The prices are reasonable and service excellent!

I was more than a little surprised when I visited the Bistro 14 in Beach Haven on LBI. The greeting was very friendly,having a choice of inside with a Bay View,or outside on the second floor with a beautiful Bay Breeze,and a pleasant sunset. This restaurant has a raw bar so fresh,that the seafood winked as you walked by :o) The food was fresh and had a beautiful presentation.We noticed theat the restaurant was very kid friendly,and also had a nice view of the ferris wheel,and the park. Many places try to impress,Bistro 14 does!

We hired Bistro 14 to cater our wedding (48 guests). Karen was extremely accommodating with the menu and provided exactly what we were looking for - she went above and beyond, even picking up fudge and elephant ears from neighboring shops for our wedding! And the food was delicious - all our guests were raving about it! Our top picks: crab cakes, balsamic scallops with fig, raw bar, antipasti display, yellow tomato gazpacho, fillet with horseradish sauce. We will definitely be going back to Bistro 14 for our anniversary dinners!

My gf and I ate here last night as we were not willing to wait 2 hours for the black whale restaurant which we LOVED the 1st night we were in LBI. So we settled for bistro14 bc it was late and had no wait.

I wasn't overly hungry and good thing I wasn't. I ordered the seafood combo which was fried scallops shrimp flounder and crab cake. On the menu it said specifically that it was a "whopping" amount of food. I got 3 shrimp, 3 scallop, one piece of flounder and one crab cake. All avg size and overcooked. All for $32. I don't mind shelling out for good food. But this had no taste and wasnt fresh. The crab cake you could have gotten forzen at Walmart. Honest. Didn't taste like fresh crab.

Oh and it came with 2 sides. The fries were good and I wanted a salad and the waitress said I could substitute a salad for one of my sides. Well I was charged $8 for the salad. So I only got one side.

This place was pure crap. Don't waste your money.

This restaurant is definitely one of my favorites on LBI. It sits right near the bay and almost every table has a beautiful view with even the option of outdoor seating! I always find the staff here very friendly and are always offering up recommendations on what to order. I personally love their seafood selection usually consisting of tuna, salmon, mahi mahi, etc. that you can choose to have prepared any of six ways they offer!! All seafood is extremely fresh and they always have delicious specials as well. If you're not a seafood lover they also boast to have the best burger on LBI which I have never had but I hear is fantastic. This is just one of their many non seafood options... My friend thoroughly enjoyed the lamb shank dinner as someone who does not love seafood. There is really something for everyone to enjoy here! Even though the dishes are a tad expensive, portions are large and everything is prepared to perfection! Definitely worth it!!
