“Great Night Out”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

A friend invited me to join her and a few other friends out for dinner and to listen to some jazz.. I relocated here about seven years ago and have driven pass this place numberous times. I was greatly surprised at the entire dining experience. The general manager came out to seat and meet our group of eight. Our waiter was very nice and knowlegable about the menu and offered great wine parings with our meal selections. We all ordered several items from the menu. Beautiful five star presentation .and every bite was a sensation for the mouth. Every dish was exceptional. The three piece band was surperb. I'm planning on hiring the for a private party. Recommend to try this place.

Reviewed April 11, 2013

The menu at this small restaurant has several tempting dishes from which to choose. Or choices were served in good time by a proficient, welcoming staff, and were delicious. The ambiance is pleasant and the prices quite reasonable.

“A gem that's still a well kept secret”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is an exceptional restaurant. Unassuming from the outside, but you have superb dining experience inside without going broke. Michael is truly an inspired chef and his food is truly vibrant and exquisite. I drive half an hour on an Interstate highway to eat there and our friends who live an hour away have been joining us there multiple times, each trip well worth it for all of us and we will definitely keep going there. There is so much inspiration in the food they serve, beautiful sauces, and the chef's love of culinary arts shows. Seasonal menu. Pulled pork with apples i had last night was heavenly!

“Great Food and Jazz at reasonable prices”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

This restaurant offers great food at reasonable prices. The menu features Vietnam and American choices. They have free local Jazz on weekend evenings. They have a very nice brunch on Saturdays and Sundays for only $8.00. They do periodic wine and dinner pairings that are wonderful. Their bar is limited to beer and wine, The staff is very attentive to their customers. My wife and I frequent this restaurant a few times a month to enjoy the dinners and the brunch. When you go there, be sure and tell Le the chef that Theresa and Aaron recommended that you go there and that we said Hi.

“Everything was Great”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We went to Lakeside Bistro for our monthly dinner club. A couple in our club had been here before and thought we would enjoy it as well. We did. The restaurant is small and cozy. The service and food are great. We liked everything we tried. I ordered the clay pot spicy pork and prawns and it was very good. We also tried the lettuce wrap and spring roll appetizers which were very tasty. The wine list is not extensive, but has good selections. We also greatly appreciated the restaurants willingness to provide separate checks for such a large party (8 couples). My wife and I plan to go back so we can try more of the items on the menu.
