Success! Thanks for posting your review of Alex's Bistro. You’ve done the world some good today.

Incredible evening!

Just had an amazing experience at Alex. The service was excellent and the food was great. The Pork Dijonnaise with Braised red cabbage was sumptuous and the banana's foster crepes... well I almost licked the plate. However, the service was the best part. After spilling a drink on the plate (there were only a few bites left), the Chef (Alex) INSISTED on providing a replacement even after we said it was not necessar... view more

Never Disappoints

My wife and I have dined at Alex's for over 15 much of their clientele are regulars who frequent this delectable little bistro. It is the most authentic bistro fare in the city and imitations are plentiful. When we are in the mood for a high quality meal prepared with classic tried and true style, we head to our favorite place. It never let's us down.

It was surprising to read that a first time cus

Won't be going back

My wife and I were recently there for the first time for dinner. I had french onion soup and crepes and my wife had crepes. About an hour after eating neither of us felt too good. She ended up in our downstairs bathroom with diarrhea while I was in the upstairs bathroom vomiting and with diarrhea. We won't be going back.

Fantastic Bistro!!

I travel a lot for business and am always happy to return to Alex's bistro as one of my favorite all-time restaurants. It compares to the best bistros in NYC, Paris, San Francisco ot Chicago. Yet, it is unpretentious, the staff is helpful and friendly....and, it does not have the BS that corporate chains fuel with their sond & dance server pitch. This is just a great low-key place with great food and drinks for a ... view more

burnt food rude service

Alex's bistro offered an unforgettabale eveing. Starting with forgotten appetizers, forgotten salads, and general poor service. The crepes arrived so burnt you couldn't dislodge them from the dish and the ""seafood"" inside the crepes were lacy skeletons. We sent the unedible crepes back and the manager then YELLED at us. Yelled at us for sending the crepes back and advising""they are only a little crispy"". We w... view more

Love This Place!

I agree with tastetester that the food has been the best since Alex is back heading up the kitchen. He has a way with sauces and flavors that we have not found in other restaurants locally. Being a French trained chef, it shows through in each dish. When we were in last week, he was telling us about his recent trip to France whcih sparked some new creations. This bistro is the real thing. It's awesome!!!

Sorry to see the chef go!

My wife and I have frequented Alex's Bistro on and off for many years and generally we know what to expect. The food in the past was usually pretty good but a little inconsistent, likewise with the service. The bar is very limited other than some good wines , but if you're a Scotch drinker I'd find a place that had more than one option to choose from. My wife and I had all but given up on the place until some frie... view more

Better than ever!!

My husband and I dine frequently at Alex's. Our first visit was when we first began dating. It is one of our favorite restaurants and that of many of our friends. It has never been better than the past two months since Alex took back the kitchen. You see, there is a huge difference when Alex is cooking, just ask his regulars. This first rate bistro servers honest french fare from Boeuf Bourgignon to Crepes, Leek ... view more

why go to paris?!

I've dined at Alex's bistro several times and I find it to be the most authentic bistro this side of the Atlantic. The food and service are always superb and the menu is varied but well edited. I am suprised that this hidden gem is not featured more often in the press. It is an excellent place for a cozy meal that will take you away from it all.

First time visitor

We went on a Tuesday night after 8p.m. The ambience is very nice. So dark you cannot read the menu easilly. The wine list is good and the glasses are FULL, not some stingy Euro half glass. They must have thought no one else was coming as when we showed up they quickly put some bread rolls in the oven. They came to the table burned and almost inedible. Pulled the unburned part off and ate. We like that you can g... view more
