Interesting place, had lunch here with my wife and we were chuckling at the artwork. Food was plated beautifully and was quite tasty. Love the simple but direct menu.

Pleasant and relaxing decor. Interesting dish of Pennsylvania chicken--I don't recall ever having cooked radishes before, but they weren't bad. FYI--does not have its own off-street parking.

After a medical procedure we went to Bistro 614 with me in a grumpy mood. We were greeted by reservation name on arrival and had a window table in this inviting warmly lit Bistro. The service was prompt, attentive, and not intrusive, a lovely delicate balance to achieve. We ordered a Pinot Grigio from the small,medium priced, carefully selected wine... More

The lunch was so good that we went back for dinner! They were very accommodating to my wife's allergies.

We stopped without a reservation. They did have a table but we chose to sit outside as there was a loud din. Laura accommodated our every wish. Service was great. The flank steak was flavorful and cooked to my order. Drinks were good. We enjoyed the evening.

My wife and I eat here on special occasions. It's a small place so make reservations. The food is fantastic, great drinks, live music is pleasant and the staff is very accommodating. I highly recommend it, but be sure to make reservations.

I have eaten here on numerous occasions before the fire that forced them to close for almost a year. I really didn't expect to give this poor review but felt it necessary. It wasn't the food that was poor, except for the Napoleon beet appetizer. I got this before and it was delicious. This time, it was different. Not as... More

Reading as you may know is filled with eating out options, just limited in really yummy experiences with atmosphere. Our hope after Bistro 614 opening after an 11 month hiatus from a fire. They have a number of the same apps and not much has changed. The staff is friendly and attentive and a number of the dishes are flavorful.... More

This is a gem of a restaurant. They provided us with a flawless dining experience. This was our first visit since they have been closed because of the horrible fire and they have not missed a beat. They were extremely busy but were still able to give us Plenty of attention. The menu provided us with a lot of wonderfully... More
