Had Dinner at Resto on Sunday night. We were four people two of which got the Restaurant week Menu. They said It was really great. I had the stripped bass which was one of the best fish dishes i have had in a while. My wife had the steak with the creamed spinach. We drank some great Bordeaux that was pretty reasonably priced. Service was very friendly and attentive and they were very busy for a Sunday night. I had eaten here when they first opened but i have to say it looks and tastes like the are a much better restaurant than ever. We will be coming back more often.

The restaurant was only half-full when I went so I was seated right away. After thinking about whether to order my go-to drink and being intimidated by their book of beers, my waiter recommended a great beer that I had never heard of before. He was dead-right with his suggestion because it was awesome. I ordered the burger with a fried egg on top. It was really juicy and flavorful. I wish I had room for dessert! I'll definitely be going back.

Food is pretty good and service just fine for me. The beer selection I like a lot and the brunch I enjoyed and will come back.

First of all, the food and drink at Resto is definitely good! The sides are excellent--grits, cauliflower, brussel sprouts all worth it. The charcuterie is a little heavy on the sausage and light on flavor but the boudin tart was fantastic, light and flavorful but robust as well. My only complaints have to do with the overall attitude of the place--it's a little self important--we asked to start with a charcuterie and were informed that "as per the chef" we could only order everything together. The thought was not to make us wait and mess up the kitchen timing but isn't it our choice to wait or not? Also, they pasted the drink menu in pages of used hardcover books (read thrift shop) a cute idea but when my friend opened the book wide to read the menu he was asked to "please not do that" What!? Are these rare 17th century tomes or is it a restaurant wine list? If the books are that important put them on the shelf and make your drink menu readable and accessible to all, Overall the food was worth a trip but the haughty attitude of the place definitely negates a return trip.

Finally went to Resto and ordered their burger and fries with gribiche sauce. First of all, you don't tell them how you want your burger cooked... and, rightfully so, because the burger was just perfect. Fries were truly crisp and very tasty and the sauce gribiche was so good we ordered another portion! The service was excellent. Wait staff very personable and helpful. Can't wait to return and try other dishes!

Had dinner with a friend last night, had a great glass of wine at the bar while waiting...after seating the waiters (2 of them) were very accomodating and left us alone. After ordering wine, we asked to order an appetizer while we decided on entree...he said we had to place our order at one time, which always annoys me, but OK...we ordered the deviled eggs to start, weird, but delicious...we were both going to have the burger...but the waiter said we were boring and should get something different...uh OK...we ordered the mussles. The burger was great, the mussles were not...very fishy and slimy. I ate a total of 3 of them. We told the waiter, he brought them back and said that both he and the chef tasted them and rather condescendingly advised "that is what mussles taste like"... really...it's not my first day at the rodeo...anyway, they offered to remake them (no thanks) and then gave us a free dessert (thank you)...but did not remove it from the bill, oh well. I would go back for burgers and frites, as they were both delicious...just stay away from the mussles...unless you like the tast of the sea floor.

I dont know about portion sizes but i had a steak for two there for $120 and now i see on the menu that the price has been dropped to $80. I dont know what the deal is down there but i would like my $40 back. also i am failing to see the connection between the bo saam and a whole animal feast. the person who wrote that comment must have no clue or has a personal issue with saam bar??
