we will miss you BISTRO! – We've been dining at Bistro 64 since before the Massey's purchased it (it was Cosmopolitians then); so loooong time and many many dinners. We prefer the bar, but the dining room is beautiful and our favorite server, Honey, is always in the dining room - but she manages to pop in and say hello and thank us for joining them every time we go. We've never had bad service there. Even when the bar was slammed, the servers were working as hard as they possibly could. The food - wow - great across the board. And we've used the City pass and TWONGO coupons there many times and never had an issue. Even when our TWONGO was expired, they still accepted it. We LOVED the entertainment in the bar and were esp happy when they added the t.v. (ACC sports!) in the bar and a burger to the bar menu. We wish ALL the employees and owners there the very best and we will truly miss the great food and service we received there.
Terrible Meal and Dining Experience – Terrible dining experience this evening. My husband and I both concur that our dinner at Bistro 64 was skimpy in portion, bland and uninspired in taste, and overpriced! To boot the bread was stale and they made a mistake on our order. Avoid this restaurant if you want value and service.
83 sanitation rating? – My daughter and I dined at Bistro a few days before thanksgiving and I spent the whole thanksgiving holiday sick to my stomach and not able to move much from the bathroom. As I was sitting at home today my daughter called me and told me about the wral sanitation grades and that Bistro had more then 15 things wrong, including improper food handling. I guess my thoughts were probably right that I got sick from the bistro. We will not return and will hope other do the same. Displeased greatly. Johnny
The Bistro Kicks Ass!!! – Get anything. Yeah, ANYTHING!!! and you too will know why I pegged it at 5 stars. I don't even give my mother's or grandmother's cooking five stars. Nobody gets five stars from me.
order the shrimp 'n grits or filet - holy sh!t :-)
Menu mispresents entrees – Several friends and I went to this restaurant in MacGregor Village to kick off a member-guest golf weekend. The menu appeared to offer an interesting selection of entrees; however, apparently the food writer and food stylist (for the restaurant's web page)didn't communicate with the chef. I ordered "Grilled Scottish “Loch Duart” Salmon over a vine riped tomato, cucumber and fresh basil salad with a honeycup mustard vinaigrette and topped with zesty onion straws." What came to the table was a serious mound (3-4 cups) of "onion straws" under a piece of salmon. A few sliced tomatoes and cucumbers were included around the bottom edge of the onion mountain. Basil was nowhere to be found. ( It looked nothing like the entree picture on the website.) When I asked the waiter about the discrepancies in my dish, he said it was a "deconstructed salad". He said the basil must be under the onion mountain.....gave it a serious look and couldn't find even one small chiffonade of basil. So he offered to take the salmon and put it over "fresh greens with basil". Brought it back...still no basil. I asked if the kitchen was out of basil and he said no he could get some for me if that's what I wanted with my salmon! The fish had been nicely cooked, unfortunately, by the time I was able to take a bite it was cold. When the dessert menu came, the waiter indicated my dessert would be "on him". I only wanted coffee . Besides, the most expensive dessert was only $6.95 and my entree was $26. When the bill came, there was no adjustment for the misrepresented entree, delay of my meal and resulting cold entree. The waiter was very cavalier and said he would "let the manager know about my disappointment" in the meal (when he came in the next day!).
A very unsatisfactory meal with equally unsatisfactory service.
Fine dining experience – Wonderful dining experience with out of town guests. Start with the multitude of choices for martinis - select from a contempory and distinct menu and enjoy a relaxing evening. They have not disappointed us during our the several visits. Our guests loved it all!
Half-priced bar menu on Thursdays – My husband and I would go to Bistro 64 with our friend on Thursday nights for the half-priced bar menu, as we are unable to afford the 'restaurant side'. When we first started going on Thursdays, it was a well-guarded secret and the bar area usually had a couple of empty tables and room to spare at the bar itself. After a while, more friends started joining us (making us a large group of 7). We recognized this could be inconvenient for the restaurant so we would call ahead. We also know that it takes quite some time for the food to come out. We are not 'campers', we try to get out of the restaurant shortly after we've paid our bill, but we still end up being there for a good two hours because of the wait on the food. The place became more and more busy and they finally told us they would no longer accept a reservation. We did not go this past Thursday, and evidently they want us back! Our waitstaff has always been very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the seasonal menu for quite some time, as there were multiple dishes we liked and did not become bored with. The menu changed, and unfortunately there's only one dish on there that I currently enjoy (I am by no means a picky eater). However, the desserts have always been winners and they have a great selection of beer, wine, and martinis.
This is MUST for people that love great good & service! – My husband and I live close to Bistro but always over-look it for other places to eat. The outside is not very inviting and I guess we just were never drawn to eating there. Recently we decided to give it is try and we have now eaten there twice.
The inside is very warm and romantic. During our first visit we had a comfortable table with a white table cloth and our server (her name was Honey) was prompt, kind and very knowledgeable. Both of our meals were very good and tasted homemade and were prepared well. We had a bottle of wine and found the prices reasonable.
Our second visit was even better. We took another couple with us because we enjoyed the first visit so much. We were arrived we saw that Honey was once again working, she is such a treat! Always a pleasure and her service can not be beat!
We asked her about the "chef menu" printed at the bottom of the main menu. She said that the chef would do either a 4 or 5 course meal for us and he would select the items. We opted for the 5 course dinner and then the real fun began!
We had 5 wonerful and artful dishes, each one better than the next. The chef even walked out of the kitchen and spoke with us. We have eaten almost every where the triangle has to offer and nothing compared! We recently dined at the chef table at Second Empire and this was much better. The price for the 4 course meal was $50 per person and $65 for the 5 course meal. We felt for the food and the service it was a great deal! The price had the Second Empire was $120 per person (for 4 courses, and 3 wine pairing,) but they add the tip for you at Second Empire and our Bill was about $330 at SE. Our Bill with Bistro was $160.00 and that included a nice bottle of wine. We could have eaten at Bistro twice for what we paid to eat at Second Empire and I really did think this was better.
The menu prices range from $20 to $35...very resonable.
In bar is pretty and romantic and the had live music playing all night.
This is an undiscovered gem that every one should try...my only worry is that it will become so crowded that I will end up waiting for a table! :o)
We have already booked for Valentine's Day and I can't wait.
Hope this was helpful.
Be careful with your coupon – This is a very pricey restaurant but we decided to try it because of the coupon in the City Pass book - buy one dinner, get one free. Upon entering the restaurant, the hostess greeted us and asked if we were aware that Monday was half price Martini night. We were delighted when presented with an extensive "Martini" menu. The four of us enjoyed 6 Martinis at $5 each. After dinner, when we presented our dinner coupons, the waiter said we couldn't use the coupon while enjoying the discount drinks - one or the other. We asked why we weren't informed of that by either him or the hostess and the response was its on the coupon. We wound up paying $60 for the martinis in order to use the coupon - bad public relations, a flim-flam scam and will never go back. It was such an unpleasant experience
