Four of us went for dinner. Three of us enjoyed our meals. Our fourth diner had ordered the veal and it was full of gristle. When he complained about it there were no apologies or any sort of consideration for the quality of the meal. We felt that our waitress was very condescending. We won't be returning.

Very friendly service and we got a table even without reservation. Food was good and reasonable priced. We even got surprised with a 25% saving based on the mad Monday special.

One if our all time favorites😋 Tonight's special was the Short Ribs w/ Rissotto. Quite nice👌 I ate the whole dang thing. I figured if I don't eat dessert tonight, I... More

We had atmospheric outdoor seating on a beautiful night for a party of 7. Our server, Jeff was fantastic and knowledgeable of all the dishes and the extensive wine collection. Everyone loved their dishes. Very relaxing. Make sure you are not rushed and on a deadline. Definitely would eat here again and again!

I dined at Baci Bistro with 4 others. We had reservations and thus were seated immediately. Menus were dispersed, specials were recited and drinks were ordered. The food came promptly, mussels were enough for all, the beet salad was of a generous size and was shared by two. My complaint is that the service was not attentive enough. We asked... More

My husband and I ate late as there were no earlier reservations. We had to wait outside and had a glass of wine while waiting. The meal was good, they use quite a bit of oil in their cooking. Service was OK.

Thank lgatz
