We came on a Friday, around 12.15. There were just a handful of tables occupied, not very crowded or busy. Slowly, during lunch peak more people came and we noticed that the wait staff was overwhelmed, especially with just two of them. We raised our hands,one of he staff noticed and nodded. She continued bringing food to tables, got people seated and gave them menus. And this cycle repeated knowing that we were ready to order. We waited for 10-15 minutes just to order despite us raising our hand and even going up to them personally to alert them. This was the most frustrating part. Other tables for their drinks and food faster than us when they ordered later than us. Our drinks only came much later. The food took a while to come as expected and it was surprisingly good. We ordered the crabmeat pasta, chicken pesto and smoked duck pizza. Highly recommend the pizza and chicken pesto. While the service was really terrible, we will probably give them another chance since the food was good. We hope their service improves.
They have an out-of-this-world pizza with smoked duck, pear, and rocket salad. I come from a hometown in the US with two world-recognized pizzerias. So I don't hand out compliments for pizzas easily. But this particular pizza deserves some attention.
They also have a refreshingly eclectic selection of beers.
Great food served in nice homely environment.
The satff is courteous and fast, important for lunch time
Pasta were tasty and had a nice slice Tiramisu.
The cappuccino was generous size.
Over all pricing is reasonable for proximity of busy business centre.
From now till 26 March, Bistroquet is part of a group of restaurants offering $30 value meals at its outlet if one pays by any American Express card.
At a recent visit, I started with the smoked salmon salad. Lots of greens that would make my mama proud.
For my main course I chose the Lamb Shank, which had a very strong wine reduction sauce and tender meat that melted off the bone.
Dessert was a treat with a very good and thick tiramisu, not wet with a generous level of mascarpone cheese.
From the a la carte menu, I also tried the Caprese Salad ($12), served chilled with crunchy tomatoes.
Oh, and did I not mention that the meal comes with a glass of wine as well?
Overall, I thought that the meal offered good value for money, especially for dinner.
