“Great place”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

I go to Bistro every other month, but would go more often if it was cheaper of course. It's a great place with a great food and wine menu and awesome specials and cocktails. The place is usually packed, even on week nights which means that it can get a bit loud around 7pm, but I guess that's part of the deal with such a popular place.

“Wow!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed July 20, 2012 via mobile

We actually did not get to the entrees. The appetizer menu is so awesome we continued to order and share them at the table. Crab cakes, calimari, and goat cheese quesadilla for starters followed by soups and Caesar salads were all excellent. We hope to go back for dessert tonight after the performance of Godspell at the Prizery.

“Gem in South Boston”
Reviewed June 8, 2012

Bistro 1888 has an appealing ambiance and vibe. The service was good on both visits as was the food, The crispy oysters, salmon, & Tuscan style shrimp were all outstanding entrees. The tomato basil soup was very good; the crab bisque and crab cake entree were average. The sides , ( mashed potatoes, orzo and green beans) were all perfectly prepared. I also appreciated that the wine by the glass was reasonably priced and good. We'll definitely return when in the area
