I've been eating brunch and dinner here for over FIVE years, and today I had lunch for the first time. The French onion soup was amazing! Why I'd overlooked eating lunch there is now a mystery of the past! Love this place!

We stumbled upon this while walking around town and it looked warm and inviting and it was. The service was magnificent, and the beer that was suggested to try on a beautiful summer evening was a watermelon beer, and it was perfect it went down so nice. We sat inside the 1st time we went but on the second time sat outside for a bit of people watching. The food was well prepared and presented well. It was definetly the highlight of our trip to New York. Highly recommend this place to anyone who is visiting the city or is even local. The service was amazing. And the jazz band that played was pretty good too. Thank you to the team for making our trip even more enjoyable.

I brought a group of 11 people here to celebrate an occasion. The atmosphere was nice, with music playing, but the waiter was very aggressive, ordering us around. He gave us a hard time on ordering appetizers and he couldn't keep straight the orders when he brought them to us. At the end of the meal, he brought us the check with tax and tip added up. However, he added on a 20[%] tip, off of the after tax bill. This is not the tradition (people usually add 18[%] on parties of 6 or more, on the pre-tax bill). I went to ask about this and both the waiter and the manager were very unresponsive and frankly mean about this. We decided that the waiter did not deserve the full tip and left only 11[%]. Upon leaving the owner ran out and accosted my party forcing some of the people to pay an additional amount of tip. Am I wrong to expect that a waiter should earn his tip and moreover should not try to rip off a large party by over charging on the tip? Never going here again!

Stopped in for a beer and resting of tired feet. Jen and Carla, the owner were truly down home and hospitable. Enjoyed talking with real people who enjoy what they do. Jen knows her beer selections better than most. stayed longer than planned , did not want to leave. Will come back from CT. to enjoy soon. Piano great, always playing!

I wandered in to this place yesterday afternoon after roaming the streets and trying to find my way round the Village for something interesting to eat. I am new to NYC as of 1.1.07, and this is the first place to really win my heart. The food was great, the waiter was just friendly enough, efficient, and made just enough conversation. The price on my spinach sandwich and Pellegrino was a little high, but this is New York, right? Actually, I would expect to pay the same amount for a nice lunch back in Houston. In a nutshell: warm quiet and welcoming atmosphere, great service and delicious bistro food in Greenwich Village. I'm hooked! I'll be back to try the mac and cheese!

The Bistro offers an escape from the hustle and bustle of new York City, the staff are friendly, it has a warm atmosphere and the food is good, honest and home cooked. There are no pretenses at the Bistro, what you see is what you get, great food, great beer, and great local artists. Tres bien.
