“A nice meal”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

We just visited the 618 Bistro and I have to say the food was very good. The small plates are more than enough food. I can't image ordering a large plate! The mussels were excellent. And the calamari is a must try. Service was great! Staff friendly and attentive. I'm going back!

“Cute decor, but overpriced”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

618 Bistro has a neat layout, and service was friendly. However, this place is seriously overpriced!. A simple pasta dish goes for $18, and salad is an extra $8-10. Their wine list is minimal, and price markups are ridiculous. For example, a $5.99 bottle of Vendange Cab goes for $32 !. Needless to day, I won't return.

“Not so good”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

We recently saw it ranked as one of the highest and it was a big disappointment. Bad service, poor food (cold, microwaved) and over priced. Not a good combination

“Up and Down”
Reviewed May 13, 2012 via mobile

We sat outside for a wonderful atmosphere. Calamari and pita/eggplant appetizers and martinis were wonderful. We thought "this is spectacular!" It all went downhill after that. The waitress forgot our salads. All entrees -shrimp, lamb and chicken pasta, were cold. They offered to reheat in the microwave. Once we got the re-heated dishes, they were so disappointing. Flavors were good, but these were clearly NOT freshly made. Per-cooked shrimp, tough over-cooked chicken, frozen-steamed-veggies. the chicken pasta dish tasted very "old." It just could have been so much better with a little bit of effort in the kitchen by a chef who really cares about the food he/she prepares. This meal was not prepared by someone who loves to cook. Will not go back.

“Great service, delicious food!”
Reviewed May 5, 2012

Nice atmosphere for a business lunch. Wait staff was attentive, food was first class, would like to try it on a weekend when they have entertainment. Will return!
