Really cute place, we came here for brunch. I had the burger and it was amazing!!! We were able to sit outside with my dog. Staff brought her a bowl of water and a treat. I love the upstairs area, too.

“Great dinner!”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

My husband, sister and I had dinner at Bistro St Michael on a Saturday night and it was wonderful from start to finish! When I made a reservation I noticed there were no crabcakes on the menu. We were disappointed as we had our hearts set on crab for dinner. But the chef was very accommodating and made us the best crabcakes we have had in a long time. Our waiter, Tom, was excellent- attentive and very funny. The atmosphere was cozy and peaceful. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a great dining experience while visiting St Michaels, Maryland.

“Great dining experience-awesome”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Had a wonderful dinner with my family. Service, food, decor are all great. We had 2 kids with us (8 and 9) and they really enjoyed the food. The bacon Mac n cheese side is good for kids. My daughter thought the server was the nicest she's ever met. The wine list was good and not overpriced. Would certainly go again!

“Bistro is excellent”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

We boated to St Michaels yesterday and called Bistro for a reservation for 4 people at 8pm. We were greeted warmly and promptly seated. Bistro is a small white table cloth restaurant with a casual/relaxed environment. The service could not have been better- NYC good without any attitude. The food was excellent and the space is nicely appointed. I would highly recommend for a nice dining experience.

“Super anniversary dinner”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

We went to Bistro for our anniversary. We were greeted very promptly and they said Happy Anniversary when they found our reservations. We had a wonderful waitress, Char who took great care of us. My husband ordered several appetizers for his meal and I ordered an appetizer, their special Crab cake and we shared dessert. Everything was wonderful! Melt in your mouth tuna, mountains of mussels and great desserts.
The mixed drink was a bit disappointing, and the reason this isn't a higher rating, though we didn't complain.
We will definitely go back and recommend people check out Bistro!
