The Bistro is tucked away next to the Sheraton, and we walked from hotel to restaurant. The exterior made the restaurant look as if it were going to be average. The food and service were surprisingly excellent! My kids' steak was cooked exactly as requested. (And yes, they are particular about how their steaks are cooked!)

A nice restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. When we stay at the Four Points Sheridan we usually eat at least one meal here. When we've eaten breakfast here it's always been good to excellent. Pancakes are large and fluffy. The bacon was excellent. No small limp greasy strips here! My husband orders the two egg scramble, but it... More

I took a friend to lunch yesterday as a treat, using a coupon. We were treated elegantly and were not punished for using a coupon. I ordered the special of the day, salmon with a delicious topping of avocado, pineapple and other delicious items. The french fries were extra crisp and delicious. I ate everything around the salmon first, as... More

My husband and I went to the Bistro last week and had a wonderful meal. I got the salmon, and he got a steak, which he said was tasty and tender. My salmon was very good, and the vegetables with both meals were done exactly right, not too hard nor too soft. The server was a bit slow to help... More

If you have the money, you cannot be disappointed with The Bistro for fine dining! Everything that my husband and I have tasted there is superb! He loves their salmon, and both of us have had crab cakes all over the States, including Boston, and these light and fluffy cakes have a delicious remoulade sauce on top, served with baby... More

Stayed at the Four Points where this restaurant is located. Had a drink at the bar in the evening which was a little quirky. Bartender was a bit of a character but I enjoyed my drink. Had breakfast in the morning. Very basic menu but very reasonable prices for a hotel restaurant. Tasted as expected. Extremely quick too.

What a great dinner place to eat at. We had to use the Groupon, my husband had purchased before it expired. Our daughter and son-in-law had gone a couple years ago with his work and they said it was good, so we try and stay away from chain restaurants and thought we should try this place. Very, very good meal.... More

The breakfast was huge and tasty--two eggs, bacon, potatoes, toast, coffee, etc. Great! Stayed at the Sheraton, of which this is part, and hit the bar in the evening. Very nice service at the bar, and, as things go, not too expensive (the salads looked great, but we had already eaten). Beer (on tap) and wine selection were good, not... More
