"We visited the restaurant first time and my wife told the server about the condition, but no one made any introduce to us. So at last we didn’t know that we should have a main dish included in the price of Buffet till we were counter to pay the bill. I reflected the situation to
Bistro101 by Email immediately when backed home. But no any response yet.

"Took my 93 year old mother and wife here for lunch to celebrate my 70th birthday. Was not disappointed . We all had the spicy Miso soup variant, which was fantastic then the delicious braised Halibut on Quinea . We all had different deserts which were light and tasty, the pear poached in wine for one. Was a great experience . The Servers handled everything in a very professional manner , both in delivery of orders and removing items. My mother wanted to know how we found this high class restaurant with such fantastic food and food."

"Love the foods. We asked the chef if he could warm up our bread basket. The chef said the students don't do that. Hate to eat cold bread! I would give 5 stars if we got warm bread.
Wished it was easier to get an appointment. Seats booked up quite quickly, even if booked a month ahead."

"Food first: wrapping even very good bacon around an excellent scallop diminishes both, especially the scallop. The flavors do not harmonize, and the bacon overwhelms the scallop. The slices of duck breast were beautiful to behold, but tasted like they had been passed through a de-flavorizer. The fried trout also had very little flavor. I'll just add that in my opinion, and I suspect in the opinion of many of your diners, the (now dated) "French minimalist" approach to food presentation, where tiny items are floating in a sea of empty plate, is a pretentious mistake, and works against the pleasures of eating good food. Service: this was our first visit to the restaurant, and no one explained to us what the drill was. What was going to happen? We had no menus. What were we to do with the buffet we saw in the back? Go there immediately? Were entrees on it? We waited a long time before a waiter came, and even then, pleasant as he was, his English was so poor that he could explain nothing, but just repeatedly bowed and smiled. In general, we had a very difficult time getting any server to notice us when we had a question or request. They all, with one exception, seemed to have perfected the "looking without seeing" method of walking through the dining area. There was one small female, perhaps a server herself, but perhaps rather some kind of supervisor, who bustled around trying to help other servers and customers as they needed it. She is to be commended. I want to end on one other positive note: the dessert buffet was a winner in all respects."

"We booked a table at 8:30pm and unfortunately we arrived at 8:45. We had to rush a little because student cooks had to leave precisely at 10pm. Except that, the service and the food were excellent!"

"I really liked the place especially because not everything was perfect! You know some of the waiters and cooks are still learning and they were nervous, but all of them gave their best and tried to be as professional as possible! But that made the atmosphere nicer and less tense like I feel sometimes in these high fashion restaurant. A nice place to dine and chat and the food was awesome, including drinks!"

Our food was fantastic.
Appetizers, mains and dessert are what you would find in a five star restaurant.

"Bistro 101 is great value for your money! You are always sure to get a delicious meal without paying the price of downtown. Tim, I think he is the head manager, has always done something special to wow us. Even if we haven’t been in months he remembers us. We have on a few occasions brought our 11 year old son with us and he has always been treated to something special."

"Size of our entrees were small compared to the group that arrived later. Plates needed to be wiped cleaner as smudges could be found on their surface. Service was average."

"We were more than pleasantly surprised with our dining experience at Bistro 101.
One issue we would like to mention is about the white wine. It was not cooled and we were told that the wine fridge is not set cold enough. The second bottle was cold and when we ordered a third bottle , it was not cooled at all and so we had to order a red wine. That was a shame.
Otherwise....a very good experience !! We plan to visit Bistro 101 again !"

"Went for the West Coast Buffet Dinner and was expecting the usual excellent choice of appetizers and desserts but the theme was Asian style rather than West Coast. Definitely a bit of a disappointment considering how much better the selection and quality of food was the last time. Would go again but not if the theme is changed!"
