We ate outside on a lovely warm day. I had the cheese plate and was happy I did. A nice variety of cheeses and the fig purée was terrific.
Went to Bistro 157 for my birthday dinner. I have to say, it's been a long time since I've been to a restaurant this good. The bread and butter/garlic was very tasty. Extensive wine list, with reasonably priced beers. I started with the Caesar salad (no anchovies), and I have to say...the croutons sold it for me (absolutely amazing!!). The... More
A Thursday night trip to downtown Valparaiso brought us to Bistro 157. Around 5pm, it is nearly vacant but it picks up and fills up around 6:15. The waiter was very good and super attentive. I had the white fish and wife had the duck. Both were good and filling. for $7 per glass, they give you a great pour... More
We picked this restaurant because we wanted to sit outside on a beautiful day. My husband had the braised beef sandwich. It came with a horseradish dip that he really liked. I ordered the 3 course lunch special which included French onion soup, angel hair pasta with chicken and 3 small dessert samples. The portions were large enough to take... More
The sushi appetizer is top rate when available! Their specialty is their version of Schnitzel. As often as I go there, I still keep ordering it. It is that good even with all the other offerings!

I had not had them fixed like this before but they were absolutely delicious. You want to soak up the last vestiges of the sauce. We then had... More
I love the fish and chips dish at 157 bistro. The cole slaw has a dressing of malt vineger which makes the crusted fish so good. The combination of these flavors will make you crave the fish and chips. The restaurant is cute with a large selection of sofisticated wines to try. It doesnt have to be a Friday to... More
Worst experience at a restaurant, ever. My wife and I decided to go to Valpo for the first time for dinner. We walked in early evening, asked for a table for 2, and the host said, "All these tables are reserved. We only have bar seating." I kindly asked how long of a wait it would be for a table,... More
We usually love 157--except for last night! The bread looked like plain whole wheat from a grocery store--like Wonder bread, right down to the uniform slices. Just "plain ol' stuff." The pork-vegetable soup was lukewarm, and tasted like it was from a can. This was an un-crowded Tuesday night, but dinner took 3 1/2 hours--for only had 2 courses. Service... More
