I’ve dined at Bistro 821 one time prior to today, and really enjoyed it. But this evening, it was very dissatisfying, on all levels. Won’t go back again.

We were told we couldn’t order off the early bird menu because we weren’t seated right at 5:00, although we sat for ten minutes waiting and had to flag down someone to serve us. The manager said we had to be SEATED BY 5:00, and that he couldn’t allow us to place an early bird order even though the website says the order has to be in by 5:30. ?!? He made a few illogical (being charitable here) statements and, after realizing that they made no sense, he “allowed” us to order off the early bird menu as long as we hurried to place our orders. Definitely not the Bistro 821 of the past. That said, our server, Scott, was very attentive.

We were a party of six and each of us completely enjoyed our various fish dinners.
The only thing is they need to have better options for wine. The wine was way too expensive

Seems odd happy hour prices are only at the bar, which is steps away from the table.
Paying twice as much for a glass of wine because you’re sitting at a table ordering a full meal doesn’t really make sense.
Waiter was prompt and accommodating but not friendly in the least.
Food was really good.
Table was great location indoors just inside the patio so we got the effect of sitting outdoors.
I would def return.

Another completely AMAZING meal. Seriously, the Sea Bass is to die for. My husband reports the pot roast was equally fabulous. We scored a table outdoors and the service was fantastic. Sadly like most places the prices have skyrocketed. Our visit was for my husband's birthday, but with these prices we are unlikely to make a return visit until next year.

We’ve been going to Bistro 821 for years and always loved it. This time was disappointed in the portion size especially the Seabass because it was also an up charge that I didn’t mind. Wish I took a picture. It was supposed to be 4ounce
But it probably wasn’t even a 2 ounce piece. It actually looked ridiculous on the plate.

Love the location on 5th with the beautiful lights and people watching. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and seated immediately. Danielle our server was attentive and informative. Nice wines available by the glass and interesting menu. We had calamari, seafood risotto and salmon….a substitute of miso Brussels sprouts for goat cheese potato cake was no problem. We both commented on the smiling attitudes from the bread server to bus boy….Overall a great experience and we look forward to going back.

A real favorite of ours - brought friends in from out of town - They loved the restaurant, the ambience was great, service was excellent. All enjoyed their dinners and we all had something different. Sole parmesan, Seafood Risotto, Bouillabaisse, and Salmon and they were big portions with lots of great fish. Our other guest had the tenderloin pasta dish that was excellent. We have always found this restaurant to be consistently good, never a disappointment.

Many of our neighbors recommended this restaurant. From start to finish, everything was perfect. Our server was attentive and we liked that the manager checked to see we were enjoying our dining experience. All the dishes were delicious. Two outstanding entrees were the miso-sake sea bass and the snapper. Steaks are from Jimmy P's and the wine list had a very good selection and range of items. For dessert we enjoyed the flourless chocolate cake. We definitely will return to try more dishes and enjoy the ambiance.

Great service. Waiter recommended the AMAZING sea bass dish. So fresh, buttery, and melts in your mouth! A little expensive but definitely worth it. Delicious gluten free dessert option of flourless chocolate cake. Rich, creamy, and so tasty! Would dine again.

We were sat without waiting with an option for inside or outside. Samantha was an awesome waitress with lots of positive energy and knew the menu and wine choices really well. She was back to visit often. We had wine, salads and appetizers since we had had a late lunch that day, but everything was very good. We'll be back.
