Had an excellent meal today (Nov. 20\16). Dill pickle soup was fabulous!!! Food was so good I wanted to lick the plate. Too fancy a place but I was tempted. The meal was cooked to perfection. Great atmosphere and excellent service. We were really well taken care of. Reasonably priced for such a delicious meal. Will definitely be returning.

My reservation was for 7 pm and we arrived 10 minutes early but were promptly seated. I noted the sign stating that the restaurant does not serve... More

I booked this Bistro for my husband's birthday dinner... I hadn't been here for many years but it was once one of my favorites... and it still IS!!! The wine selection is fabulous and my steak tartare was sublime... just enough seasoning without being over powering. My husband had the escargot... not the usual presentation... MUCH better. The ambiance has... More

quiet spot with plenty of windows...European music playing in the background...wonderful staff...the food is continental, and it is very good. Great borscht, and my son loves the pickle soup. Have been here over 100 times, and have not had a bad experience.

I know the lady I was to meet likes fine dining. Continental Bistro was excellent for the occasion. Accessible location, excellent menu, very classy interior, light music and great service. Will work well for couples, dates, client meetings and family outings. Prices may not be very comfortable for students or boisterous groups. Expect to spend between $50-60 on an average... More
