The Bistro was recommended to us by locals. The service was fine but our meals were lackluster. Droopy salads. Probably the prix fixe dinner is the way to go here.

We pretty much picked this place at random. It is a plain looking place with a raw oyster bar. The menu is varied with a number of daily specials. I had the ciopino which was very good. The service is efficient and friendly. The background...More
