Torch Bistro had an available spot at 8 pm. We had never eaten there. We were greeted by the owner with a warm welcoming.... More

The food was wonderful, service was great! Heidi and Bob did an awesome job. Ahi tuna app was delicious, beach bread was so flavorful, and the burger was gigantic. Happy Hour had some great drink specials. Would totally recommend. Stay away from the chains and eat local!

This was our first trip to Torch Bistro and probably won't return. We stopped for an early dinner and sat on the patio. Our server took drink orders promptly and was back within 5 minutes to take food orders. She told us about the spaghetti and meatballs special and my wife choose that. I selected the meatloaf dinner. The meat... More

The service and the food is amazing - I would go back! But don't be fooled by the website, though - they do not have sushi.

We tried this place as a suggestion from a local. We wanted sushi . We were a little disappointed to find that sushi is... More
