Bistro 234 Ratings and Reviews
Nice we were able to make a reservation and we got there and got seated immediately. The food is excellent quality and good portions, we were able to have a conversation and hear each other, wonderful atmosphere. Waiters we kind and did an awesome job, never had to ask for anything.
I was at Bistro a couple of years ago and I remembered this really good burger they offer with pickled onions. . Decided to give it another try with the Hubbs. This time we ordered something different. He had the ribeye with this rich mustard sauce over it. Overall I would say It was ok.
The pasta with shrimp I ordered was nothing special. Penne pasta with this rich white sauce basically. The truffle macaroni was also ok. I did like the Albarino wine though! That was worth it. May be I will try it again during their wine tasting nights.
Great location. Seated immediately. Wait staff outstanding and personable. One in the party ordered a glass of wine and after serving it, the waiter brought out a sampling of a similar wine. His recommendation (and the taste of his sample wine) encouraged us to seek out the winery the same weekend to purchase a couple of bottles to take home. Great experience and fantastic food!
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.
I was very disappointed. I had not been to this restaurant in a long time. I had always thought it was overpriced but the service was usually pretty good. This time it was awful. The guy didn't tell us there were specials nor was he at all attentive, and definitely not friendly. Perhaps it was because we were two older women since he treated the couple at the next table very differently. It was hot and I ordered a salad. For $20 I got a lot of lettuce, a little dressing slopped on the plate and 3 shrimp...not worth the money!
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.
