    The service and food were top notch. The lighting where we sat was very low. We had to use our flashlight phone apps to read the menu, a minor inconvenience. Other than that it was a perfect night.

    My expensive salmon was overcooked. The thinner edge was dry and extremely overcooked; the thicker end was also overcooked but not as much as the thinner end. My partner’s chioppino was OK; it did not taste as though the soup/stew base had any fish stock or flavor. The portion was somewhat meager in terms of seafood; however the seafood was cooked perfectly. Service was excellent.

    The food was fine. Heavy handed with the truffle oil. We had a 6:15 reservation and we're going to the symphony at 8. We ordered two entrees and one salad. The salad came quickly and then we waited until 7:35 for our entrees. We had to rush and RUN, paying while we ate. No apologies or updates on slow/busy kitchen from wait staff.

    Il Bistro always reliable with nice staff, decent food and drinks. We were going to an event, let them know our timing, and food stalled in the kitchen leaving us 10 mins to eat. Super disappointing for what was a 250 meal.

    Very dimly lit. Food was good large portions. Not fine dining but a solid place to take the family. Everyone liked their food. Will definitely go back.
