"My multiple return for a quick "bite" while shopping at the Mall. My Tuscan chicken melt was tasty and portion was quite generous. Service was quite "speedy" considering that place was very busy. Overall, this was another nice experience and, a definite "come back" for me."

PISTACHE is a Parisian-style French bistro with a Mediterranean twist. It serves simple, delicious meals made with fresh, local and imported products. It seats 180 people and is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.<br />Prices are moderate and the recipes nutritionally healthy. Service is casual and efficient. The atmosphere is upbeat with a definite European flair. The interior is reminiscent of the Art Nouveau, which defined most brasseries and bistros opened in 1920"s Paris. It boasts cozy seating with numerous red leather banquettes, a full bar and giant antique mirrors. The restaurant has a feel of "Always been there". It is classic, retro-modern and sophisticated but unpretentious.<br />The outdoor patio overlooks Centennial Park, the Fountains and the Intracoastal Waterway. It is shaded with large umbrellas and seats 30 people in a Riviera-like setting.

"Very nice outside seating. There was a Christmas show on the way just across the street, so I was able not only to dine but also to enjoy the music and a wonderful light show over Christmas decorations! Tuna Crudo offered a reasonable portion for me and, it was delicious. This is one of my favorite places for any time of the day or evening and, I return there with pleasure."

"This is a great place to have a quit (or not) lunch while shopping at Neiman Marcus or in the Mall! This time I had a sampler that included a cup of soup (lobster bisque) and half a chicken sandwich. Portion was just the right size for me and tasty. Place was very crowded though and service was "patchy". Also, one should make a reservation ahead of time during a Holiday Season since "come in" might not get accommodated."

We also found "our "Savignon Attimis on the wine list which was a nice surprise since we though, one could get it only in Europe...We are already looking forward to the next coming back..."

"We had a very nice dinner on our numerous return to Cafe Chardonnay. Beet salad with toasted walnuts and Gorgonzola cheese is our favorite and we always order it. Special menu offerred multiple dishes from which we chose a NY Strip, which was excellent. Beef short ribs, slowly braised for hours, presented itself as the most tender imaginable meat. To accompany our dinner we selected a very nice Yamhill Pino 2012 from a great wine list...Too bad that we could not accomodate any desserts at the end because portions were quite generous...A definite come back!"

"Another wonderful dinning experience at La Sirena! We just cannot get enough of this restaurant and each time we return there, there is yet another dish to discover (this time it was salmon on special and fillet of pork wrapped in Prosciutto). Bottom line is that whatever we order, it always meets our expectations. On top of this, there is an excellent wine list and impeccable service! Nothing else to add, just go there and dine..."

Enjoy an evening... between us. The creative fare features contemporary American cuisine, using the finest ingredients made-to-order. The menu includes prime meats, local seafood, hand-made pastas and more - simply flavorful and fresh. Family owned and operated since in 2005, Entre Nous has become a "favorite' neighborhood bistro and bar. The atmosphere is relaxed and pleasing, making it a perfect dining destination to share with family, friends or a date.

"Every time I come to Entre Nous Bistro I am confident that I will find a great service, nice atmosphere and an enjoyable meal. At an early hour (between 5 and 6:15 pm) there is a special deal for a three course dinner (ranging from $22 to $35 depending on the dishes)... however, there is always plenty of food offered and a glass of wine at a "Happy Hour" price. Bar that is heavily occupied, could be at times too noisy but that should be expected. Overall, this is a great place to dine and for me, a definite come back!"

'More fresh fish is coming to the island as Thierry Beaud, co-owner of Clematis' popular French bistro Pistache, and his group of Palm Beach investors are bringing life back to 251 Sunrise in the form of PB Catch...the restaurant space will feature locally caught seafood served in a casual nautical dining room, think "a modern yacht", accented with white-leather banquettes and mahogany floors.' - EaterMiami

"It was our multiple return to PB Catch and, we were not dissapointed. Sea Cuterie offered, as always, wonderful choices of grilled octopus (our favorite), sea bass, salmon and others (three for $16 and, you could add more), all nicely presented and very tasty! Snow crab claws and tuna on special were excellent, so was cioppino. Our server Leo was attentive and friendly but not overhelming... We just had one more very nice dinner and we plan on going back soon."

"We started off with a quiet, wonderful table near the fireplace but that did not last long: the restaurant filled with people quickly on that Saturday night and became very loud with "spotty" service. We had beef Carpaccio for an appetizer which tasted good but for an Italian place, we expected better (meat had no texture and was falling apart). Same applied to Branzino and Halibut on special (both overcooked, including roasted potatoes and beans). The best part of the dinner was our dessert Zabaglione which was made at our table (what a nice show) and was truly delicious. I would return to Alba but on a weekday..."

An authentic Neapolitan pizzeria and Italian restaurant situated in the landmark MetLife Building at Grand Central Station at E.45th Street, Naples 45 offers al fresco dining in the warmer months and tantalizing regional Southern Italian specialties with friendly take-out service and gourmet brick-oven slices to go. Naples 45 was awarded the coveted certification of "La Vera Pizza Napoletana," in recognition of serving authentic Neapolitan pizza made with traditional ingredients, methods, and wood-burning ovens - one of only two such awards in New York City.

"Very busy outside for "happy hour" but not that much inside at that time. Service was friendly but the advice on selection of appetizers was disappointing (eggplant parmigiana and meatballs; Piccoli, combo of two for $16. Eggplant had more of breadcrumbs than anything else and, meatballs were dry and hard to chew on. Big portions though!). After that I decided not to order any pizza although it was the reason why I came to this restaurant (special fire oven, one of the very few in NY City). So, I will try next time for pizza."
