"The service was wonderful! My blackened halibut was amazing! My husband was not impressed with the shrimp and scallop risotto- it was a cup of creamy rice on a plate with sautéed shrimp.
The atmosphere is depressing- very out of date and the elderly piano player sing Sound of Music was a bit much. My husband and I - late 50s- were youngest there on a Saturday evening."

"Bistro offered a classy atmosphere and fine service.
At issue: the piano music was way too loud. Typically,
a piano bar sound is softer and diners do not have to
speak over it. I enjoy live music during a meal but only
if it does not overwhelm.
The dinner was good but not particularly memorable,
compared to, say, Osteria Mama.
Sadly, Bistro is also one in a long list of restaurants that
only offers calamari fried as opposed to steamed in a
marinara sauce or sautéed. Fried I associate with less
rated eateries. Or, maybe Bistro learned it's the only
way Americans want to eat it.

"We went on Christmas Eve for a nice holiday meal, and enjoyed our night out. We each ordered steak meals, which were tasty and cooked perfectly. Nice ambiance and the live piano music was a treat. Great martini list as well! We'll be back!"

"This restaurant has it all but the few times I've been there it just takes way too long to get the food out. When the food does come it's fantastic. This must be an issue with expediting in the kitchen If they could fix this I would be here all the time."

"We went on the recommendation of another UCLA parent. We live in northern California, so we were very happy to find such a good Italian restaurant not too far from campus. I had the halibut and it was tops! The portion size was so big, I had to take half and give it to my grateful son who then didn't have to eat at the dorm cafeteria the next day!"

"We went here with another couple who were visiting on vacation. This was our first time here, but not our last. Excellent service and great food. One had a club sandwich, one a salad with seafood and 2 with their special-pasta with baby scallops (so many) mushrooms, and spinach. Delicious. Service staff was very attentive. Lovely lunchwith friends."
