Went to Bistro 45 based on the reviews on here and never even made it to the table.\r We were sitting at the bar waiting for the rest of our party enjoying a glass of wine when something happened.\r A gray haired waiter with a mustache came to the bar and asked for a macallan on the rocks. The bartender told him they did not have it. The server then said ""F*** these ____ just pour them anything, they won't know... view more

Not Worth It...

This restaurant is very highly regarded in the area, and has a great reputation among the locals. Although the food was ok - it was just that ok. I wasn't impressed at all - especially at $30 a plate. Smitty's, which is just a few block away on Lake, has much better food at lower prices. I don't mind paying the high price, but I want high quality as well - the food at Bistro 45 was average quality - not high end at a... view more

Good food from starters to desserts!

It was our first time at this restaurant, so we didn't know what to expect besides a little higher bill. We had to wait about 10 minutes, which wasn't too bad even though we had reservations. The ambience was pleasant, but a little on the loud side. The air conditioning was set a little too cool for me, but it was probably comfortable for the men in sports jackets. Our waiter was very pleasant and helpful. The f... view more

Great service, great food.

We really enjoyed ourselves here. A party of 4 very picky eaters and everyone loved their dishes (I had the scallops and thought they were great - and the risotto with them was wonderful...oh, and the chocolate soup was scrumptious), and had a lovely time sitting outside on the patio....though I do think they could do a lot more with the patio decor-wise. The service was amazing - everyone very attentative and friend... view more

How do you describe perfection? Bistro 45.\r What an adorable off the beaten path treasure.\r Very attentive staff and the food, excellent. Presentation, setting, (the outdoor patio is lovely). It was a wonderful time.\r If the world famous Fleur de Lis in San Francisco is too far, this is your lucky day.

Great food, atmosphere, and staff!

We had read all of the glowing reviews for Bistro 45 and just had to check it out ourselves. The building is absolutely adorable, a tiny Art Deco gem on otherwise quiet Mentor Avenue. Valet parking available at what I consider to be a reasonable $4.50.\r \r We were warmly greeted by the manager and the owner of the restaurant. Granted, we were checking the place out for a private event so I'm sure we received the b... view more

You will not be disapointed!

Me and my husband feel so lucky that we found this Amazing place. It is by far our favorite restaurant. It is quite reasonable for such great food. We have never had a bad, or even mediocre meal here, and we come for every special occasion. We are always in awe, and leave happy and content. Great service, beautiful ambiance. Try it, you will not be sorry.

Service Above and Beyond

My Girlfriend and I called last minute on a Saturday night for a table and despite the fact that the restaurant was closed for a private party they set up a special area for us. Unfortunately, we finished our meal at the same time the private party was winding down and it had begun to rain. The poor valet attendants were pushed to the limit and we were stuck behind a line of 30 something drunk office folk. Our waiter... view more
