Very good food. Slightly crowded with the way the room is arranged. A bit on the pricey side but the food is great.

Our waiter (who was terrific) raved about the special of the evening - rib eye. The flavor was very good was the meat was very tough. Sides were very good. We will definitely try the Bistro again but may go with the crab cakes next time - they come highly recommended by friends.

The food was excellent and the service was great. It is a small restaurant and we knew this ahead of time as we were staying at the hotel but they really have too many tables crammed into the restaurant. Very crowded but excellent service.

The server at dinner forgot my rolls but then also emptied the bottle for my second glass of wine and "forgot" to top it off but also didn't charge. I was happy.

I was taken to the Bistro by a business colleague who, although living in Houston, had not been there before. The first impression was somewhat underwhelming as there was no greeter at the door, so we were wandering around - with some difficulty as it is quite a small room, with tables very close together, and quite a bit of space taken up by the bar. It was also quite noisy. In fairness, we had arrived at 7pm just as the large pre-theatre crowd was leaving, and, once we caught someone's attention, and were seated, the noise level abated quite quickly and, from then on, we had no complaints. The food was great, both my sea bass and my colleague's filet mignon which were both cooked perfectly. The wine by the glass, which was suggested by our server, was excellent and the servings were generous. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. I would certainly go back but, possibly, a little later to avoid the pre-theatre crowd.
