“A Real Good Restaurant”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

Food is very good and good portions. This is one of my wife's favorite eating establishments in Sayville. The wine list is well stocked. Although the food is good the menu doesn't vary that much from week to week. Loved the breadsticks they use to have on the table but for some reason they have disappeared. You won't be disappointed with this restaurant .

“WALKED OUT!!”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

We were in search of SDalmon that particulasr night and apaprantely Sayville was out of it!1 We asked at the door after walking the strip and ending up there, if they had salmon we were told yes by the owner and were seated.
When the waitress came to take our order we were then told they didn;t have salmon!! We stayed as they had monkfish as their special and that is another of my favorites. The owner came over and aske dif I was familiar with Monkfish -- in a condesceding manner. I replied yes I am I used to be in the restaurant business. My husband ordered a chicken pot pie for his
which was frozen inside when it arrived at the table -- so much for made on the premises --my monkfish was like rubber just horrible -- and i have had monkfish prepared many ways-- when the owner sppraoched the table his reply was that is why i asked you if you were familiar with this type of fish!! We explaine dthe cold pot pie and returned my rubber fish paid for the drinks and left ---NEVER TO RETURN

“This is on our list of favorites now.”
Reviewed 22 June 2013

We've just recently discovered Bistro 25 a couple months ago and have been back four times. The place is usually full but the service has been excellent. The owner is usually managing and seating and always tries to accommodate your requests. There's live music on the weekends which is nice and entertaining while you wait and/or eat at the high tops. Food is great whether you want a full dinner or just sandwiches or burgers. BTW, they make the best burgers. If you like wine, their house wines are not your typical swill wine but rather carefully chosen wines that you normally would pay a premium for by the glass at other places. We've come here with just my husband and I as well as a group of six and each time we've had a great experience. I definitely recommend Bistro 25.

“Terrible”
Reviewed 8 June 2013

We had this restaurant on our regular rotation of favorite places for the past couple of years. Tonight we removed it. The restaurant was about 75% full and the overall service was horrible. It took over 20 minutes to get a drink order and that was only after we had to flag someone down. After waiting so long, the waiter took the order and rather than putting in the order to the bar, he proceeded to then tell us the specials. When the rolls finally came, they were stale. The main course came 30 minutes after the first course and then again only after we tracked down the owner. After that course was cleared, another 20 minutes to get someone to take our dessert order. Again, another 20 minutes passed and we got our waiters attention, he told us the kitchen was 'backed up'. We cancelled our order and asked for the check. It was obvious they needed at least one more waiter and the kitchen was understaffed. The owner was no help. He must have known what the problems were but he made no effort to visit the tables or help with the service. With every course served, the drinks, food and table wear were all placed in front of the wrong person. The food is still very good and reasonably priced but I feel this is our last visit. Too bad, it used to be very good.

“Great Food”
Reviewed 4 June 2013

The food is excellent and the waiters are great. However, the few times we have been there, we have felt rushed to leave by the manager, despite having reservations and not being seated very long. We would have ordered dessert but... Other than that, the meals are great and a great value to boot!
