“Excellent First Impression”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

This review is for the Bistro. At long last, there is a bar with big screen tv's (6) in Lynden. Our visit was on a Monday evening, and we decided to split a salad and a main course. The Cesar Salad was perfection. Housemade dressing, with just the right touch of garlic and anchovy. Barbecue Ribs were as the menu described, "fall off the bone" delicious. Not too sweet sauce, with a nice amount of heat. And terrific fries. There is a decent selection of beer on tap, wine by the glass, at fair prices. Excellent service from our server, Julie. We will certainly go back to 9 Bistro.

“Change your service level or you won't last”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Terrible service on all fronts. A very long wait to get acknowledged by waitstaff. Ordered drinks and waited another 15 min before waitress advised us they were out of the ingredients. Ordered a different kind and waited 5 min for that one, which was poorly made (missing a key ingredient). Dinner choice, the fish tacos, took too long. Another 30 minutes in which the waitress never stopped by. People sometimes will order a second drink while they are waiting but you miss the sale when you disappear until you dumped the food off. Fish were cold and blah but not the worst we've had. I'd rate the food a 5 on a scale of 1-10.

Seriously, improve your bar and kitchen staff. We won't be back. You'll lose other customers if you don't change.

“Super staff and excellent food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

Birthday supper away from home. The Chef looked after a special request for lobster even though it wasn't on the menu. Filet mignon and lobster were both prepared perfectly, al-dente asparagus was done just right and the gruyere potatoes au-gratin were the best we've ever tasted. We'd definitely come back!

“The Bistro”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

There is an upscale steakhouse. As well as a bistro. Both are good. We ate 3 times at the Bistro during happy hour and the appetizers were enough for our meal. It was excellent and the service excellent.
