“Service food both great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

My wife and I dined last night at this restuarant and enjoyed a delicious meal and very good service. The restaurant is quiet, has a full bar and good wine selection. My dinner was the special grouper and she had the pot roast. Both were delicious and only one suggestion. As many of us are on a low sodium diet, they need to go easy on the salt. My grouper was prepared in a lobster beurre blanc, like a lobster bisque and was very tasty, but a bit salty. Service was especially good. Very attentive but not too much.

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

Delicious food that is priced well below what it is worth! My husband had a $16 grouper entree that would have easily been $28 other places. Service was great and the food couldn't have been any better.

“Yum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

The beer battered fish and chips were AWESOME and the aoili with it was amazing!I ate almost all of it (it wasn't even mine lol). I had the chicken ceasar salad.It wasn't bad,but it wasn't anything to write home about either.Overall it was a nice lunch and I had a Groupon which made it even better.However this place is slighty tricky to find on the GPS due to it being in a plaza.

“Good food and good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

This is the second time I've visited Bistro 536. First time was for lunch and the roasted beet salad was delicious. Most recent visit was for dinner. I had the groupon and it was very good. Husband had the pot roast, son had the fish and chips. Good meals for all and service was great. Will go back.

“A too well kept secret”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

This place is one revelation in the area. Well "hidden" next to a Subway restaurant (btw this last got an amazing int'l staff that worth a stop), the outside look doesn't give a clue about what great restaurant is hidden inside. The personnel is very polite and the menu choices so attractives it invites to come more than once. We were five - including a three years old - and all got food you would expect in some grands restaurants. No exageration. The only backside, and that's one that can be corrected easily from the restaurant owners: the wine was not served at good temperature. A simple rule: a light red (e.g. Beaujolais) is best at 59F (15C), and a very strong/solid red (e.g. Saint-Emilion) at 64.4F (18C). Hence, it was very sad to get a "good" Californian red wine at over 75F. Forget the wine and this restaurant shall get a mention in a travel guide. A must.
