If you are looking for an overall eating experience that will in all honesty take you to the heart of Italy, Bistro 54 is the place for you. The beautiful quaint setting, the phenomenal service, and the incomparable food are simply a few reasons to visit this wonderful intimate spot. Engulfed in the open kitchen concept, the food that you hear sizzling will soon emerge on your plate with mind blowing presentation. Will go back over and over again. Kudos to the service and both Chef's Dave and George for making each and every customer feel like family.

“Bistro 54 never fails to impress”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

The food here is excellent. Fresh pasta a delightful appetizers and entrees. We have been her at least a dozen times in the past 12 months.
My only complaint is their portion sizes are inconsistent. There are times the fabulous $12 Ceasar Salad is enough for two and sometimes barely enough for one. The pasta dishes too are not consistent in sizing. While in many restaurants this would dissuade us from going. The food at Bistro 54 is fantastic alway.

“Amazing Food”
Reviewed February 4, 2013 via mobile

We frequent this restaurant often and always come away with a great dining experience. Attention to detail, excellent menu choices, excellent food ... always fresh. Very friendly atmosphere and Chef Dave frequently takes time to personally speak with his guests. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a fine dining experience and excellent Italian fare! Well done Bistro 54!

“What a Treat!!”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

We didn't know about this wonderful restaurant. Found it by chance and decided to try it. My son is a chef himself and he was certainly aware of this fine dining experience. The food was very fresh and the menu offered delicious veal and pasta and seafood dishes. I had the lobster ravioli and they were very good. A few had the veal dishis. The veal just melted in your mouth. Our only problem was we had two children ages 6 and 9. The fine dining is a little lost on their appitite. I would not recommend bringing children here. It is a little pricey but worth the money.
