Bistro 234 Ratings and Reviews
This was our first time at Bistro and it lived up to all of the hype. The food was delicious, the cocktails were great and the service was top notch. I had the halibut and my husband had the sea bass - both delicious. We had the iceberg wedge salad to start and it was so fresh and tasty. The blue cheese on it was amazing. We ended the meal with creme brule. Perfect. We will be back soon.
great food and great drinks. The waiter left a lot to be desired.. He asked everyone around us how their food was but not us. He offered dessert to all around us but not us. Never smiled once. We left a $25 tip. Hope that made him smile
Thank you so much for a wonderful graduation lunch yesterday!!! Best service, best food and we had an amazing time. We live in Tracy and can't wait to visit Bistro 234 again. I gave you a huge shout out on FB too. Truly a wonderful restraurant!!!!
Came in on a Saturday for an early Mother's Day lunch. Pretty busy so had to wait a few minutes for the hostess, not a problem except for my elderly father who cannot stand long. Service was slow, but very good. The three of us really enjoyed our food and my parents said they would certainly come back. However, the highlight of the meal was the Bloody Mary. My father is still talking about them, and said he would go back just for those! Thumbs up, and see you again soon!
Cozy bistro on Main in Turlock. Good food, excellent service, nice decor. Altogether a classy way to dine. I had Ahi; my wife had Chilean sea bass. All well prepared. also the olive assortment with chewy sourdough bread...absolutely yummy. Just come for a cocktail, olives and bread. A classy addition to old town Turlock. Nicely done.
We've been here many times. I was a little disappointed with the specials. We ordered the portabella mushroom raviolis, they were ok, 15 small raviolis is a generous guess and it cost almost $25. I was disappointed with the choice of music playing as well. 80's rock on a station with commercials is not what I was expecting for a romantic dinner out.
The service was excellent. Three of us ordered fish. My sea bass was over salted and the other two orders of seared ahi were over cooked and under seasoned. The pork chops were very good. Next time I will probably steer away from the fish, but will certainly be back.
I love this place for special occasions. The food is excellently prepared and presented in a creative style. The atmosphere is upscale, yet casual. My favorite is the Potato Gnocchi--rich and delicious! The service is friendly and prompt.
The bistro is a nice place to have dinner. We appreciate the service, and the setting. However the quality of the food is irregular. The gnocchi was so salty it should have been returned to the kitchen. The steak was good, but fatty. The vegetables and salad are always good, but a $25 pasta dish should be perfect and this was far from it.
Even after making open table reservation for 645 still had to wait another 30 mins, then the hostess forgot that we were waiting until we spoke up. Another than the hostess not being friendly or courteous the meal, wait people and ambience were excellent
