Went to Bistro 157 for my birthday dinner. I have to say, it's been a long time since I've been to a restaurant this good. The bread and butter/garlic was very tasty. Extensive wine list, with reasonably priced beers. I started with the Caesar salad (no anchovies), and I have to say...the croutons sold it for me (absolutely amazing!!). The main course was the strip steak with red potatoes and grilled peppers/veges. Steak was ordered medium and it came out exactly that. The seasoning was done perfectly and the steak was very juicy. The potatoes were soft but firm. Easy enough to slice with a fork, don't fall apart, and melt in your mouth. I can't place the seasoning on the veges but I couldn't stop eating them (my fiance enjoyed eating those as well). She got the cracker crusted white fish (I think it was a special), which was also delicious! For dessert I got the cheesecake, which I've never seen or tasted it's equal. Great presentation and soooo creamy. They even put a candle on it for me. :) The chef came out and spoke with us a minute or two which I've never experienced. Said she has been working 16 hour days!!! You can tell she puts love into her food, which is so rare in restaurants today. Service was European-like, enough time in between plates for resting/talking. Don't expect this to be a quick bite to eat. Expect to sit for 2 hours and enjoy the company your in, because I know you'll enjoy the food!
