It might be a nice place, but there's no way I'm going there. Can't take the chance that I might end up downwind of the wrong person. Had that happen to me a few weeks back at Walmart, and I just about gagged. Odor is one thing, but this was flat out nauseating. B&B is not an option for me. Sorry.

Good.

Would not want it to be a hangout for lying a-holes such as yourself.

If there were any truth to your story - and there's not - it would more likely be the vile, rotting remains of your dead character that you smelled.

It is a good thing for The Bistro & Brew that they are not an "all-you-can-eat" establishment. Moreno has finally tried something better than deep fat fried Southern food and he likes it. He doesn't know what it is, but he likes it. If it were "all-you-can-eat," there would be nothing left for any other customers.

Good luck to Bistro. You should know, however, that no restaurant endorsed by Moreno has survived for long.

Ladies, if you have been having trouble getting your man to go try a French-themed bistro, this is your meat-and potatoes guy's night.

I've had the Roti de boeuf braise. If you've got the meat hungries for a large, entirely satisfying serving of absolutely delicious beef pot roast with potatoes, carrots, celery, and onions, this is your night. It was the best I've ever eaten, honestly.

Really? But are you all capable of getting off of your hate-filled, parochial, red-necked asses and trying something new and excellent?

Jay, please stop talking about The Bistro. There really is no one who will go to a restaurant because you like it and there are some who will not go just because of you. I don't care if you like it or not or if you think theses people are what you call "haters." It is what it is. The Bistro is a good restaurant so please just shut up and give them a chance at success.

Screw facebook.

How about a web page with directions, hours and a menu.

Do these people serve a breakfast and if so is it a buffet or order by plate?

And no Moreno I'm not taking my time to review the last 250 posts for the answers.

TERRIBLE.

We decided to check out this place as it had replaced “The Hot Skillet”. It was a primarily breakfast spot, and after a few times of my eggs being undercooked and realizing the bacon was microwaved, we welcomed its closing and this restaurant in its place.
First trip: When we ordered our drinks, I requested straws. We were told they were low and were saving them for take-out orders, yet as I looked around, the other two tables in the restaurant had straws. I was a bit peeved, but hey, it is a small business and they just opened so I let it go. The food was great. I ordered a bowl of French Onion soup (of course) and my fiance ordered the burger. He thought it was great. When they brought our my soup, I was in heaven. The portion was HUGE bowl. In fact, so huge I could not finish it. We left happy and excited that we had a new place to visit that wasn't a chain restaurant.
Second time: I ordered the Reuben. I was told by our waitress that the bread it normally comes on was not available, so I looked for another option. Suddenly, she came back and told me they did indeed have the break for it, and not the thin Rye it had been served on to an unhappy customer earlier. I gladly ordered it, and when it arrived, the bread was the thin bread I was assured it would not be served on. My waitress then came back and asked me if it was OK on that bread, which left me confused because I was under the impression it was the correct bread. I was not impressed with the portioning of the meat. I had the side of French Onion soup, again delicious. My fiance's burger was a bit overcooked and under-seasoned, and he was less impressed.
Today we went back much to the chagrin of my fiance. The restaurant was empty, as always, and the menu prices had gone up. The signs of an already failing restaurant. I promptly ordered the bowl of French Onion soup and he ordered the Italian Beef sandwich dipped. When my soup arrived, I was confused. My large bowl had been replaced with a large coffee cup. I believed it might have been a mistake. The waitress assured me it had never been served in a bowl, and she would be happy to pour it into one if I wanted. She wasn't getting my point. This portion was half the size of the bowl I had come to love and regardless if it was in a different container, I was paying for less soup. After a few minutes of back and forth, the husband of the owner came over. He also assured me it had never come in a bowl, and it was 16 oz and blah blah blah. Ironically, they serve a 16 oz cup of coffee on their menu. Hmmmm. You're charging me 6.99 for a coffee cup of onion soup. The menu doesn't state oz for the sizes, so regardless of his idea of what it was, it was never that way. I was insulted that I was basically being told I was a liar, and forgive me, but I don't tend to forget things like this in the span of a month when you live in a small town with hardly any restaurant options. The female owner was in a meeting near us, so she was not available to come over. Ironically, I overheard the meeting was about profit margins and such. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE SOUP I FELL IN LOVE WITH? The onions were cut too big and were not caramelized, and hardly cooked at all. I had requested extra cheese, which was not given to me. The flavor was boring and typical of condensed onion soup. My coffee cup of soup was not broiled til the cheese was brown and gooey, but half melted. My fiance's sandwich came out. The cheese was not melted, and it was not dipped. The break was bone dry and not as the menu describes. He brought this to the attention of our waitress, who brought it back to the kitchen, and then came right back out. She started explaining, no doubt that we were wrong again, and my fiance cut her off and did not accept the sandwich. After dealing with our condescending waitress, he was entirely unhappy. He gave me his soup which he ordered as a side, and had nothing.

I look forward to seeing what opens up in their place.

Wow.

That is so unlike any experience I've had there.

Given that you used your real name, I believe you.

When I had the outstanding French onion soup, it was indeed in a soup bowl that was like a bowl you might expect to get chili or beef stew in. It was perfect. Of course, Victoria made it herself.

I'm sure you meant bread every time it reads "break." Damn this predictive software.

Now that I think about it, every meal I've had has been at night except for Sunday brunch on Mothers' Day. My food was always prepared by Victoria herself and came out perfect.

By any chance, did your waitress have a heavy, Long Island accent?

I know she is training a young lady as a chef in the daytime.

Too bad you had that experience. I'll forward your comments to Victoria. I'm sure she will be distraught and correct the problem.

"My fiance's sandwich came out. The cheese was not melted, and it was not dipped."

I'm not 100% sure but I'm fairly confident that the customer does the dipping.

Anyone ever have a sandwich that was pre-dipped in jus in the kitchen?

Could be a French thing, I don't know.

I have never applied to work there.

I wrote my review in a document program, and I see it showing "bread" and not "break", so that comment left me a bit confused.

I am indeed a real person, and my review is every bit real as it could be.

I am highly uncomfortable you have chosen to internet stalk me and post all my links, which accomplishes what?

My waitress was an older woman, who I can't say had a long island accent. It sounded more Midwest.

I don't think I will be returning, regardless of your efforts. I don't particularly like being called a liar by staff, and I would rather drive all the way back to Jacksonville to eat at the restaurants I left behind when I moved here.

(What the menu states) Fresh Italian herbs, slow roasted Beef dripping with meat juices served on a dense long Italian roll. Order it like a native: ask for Hot dipped: Italian beef on gravy-wetted bread and giardiniera (Dipped or double dipped)

We are not describing a French dip here. Italian Beef sandwiches ordered dipped require the entire roll is dipped into the beef juice, which leaves the bread quite soggy. Otherwise, the juice in which the meat is cooked is spooned over the top. Authentic places will dip the whole sandwich if you request. The juice is not served on the side like a French Dip.

My sympathies, Samantha. Sadly, Julian (Jay) Moreno is a well-known cyberstalker with suspected psycho/sociopath tendencies. If anyone disagrees with him (and everyone does of course) they are subjected to invasion and obscenities. Please know that he is in no way representative of either the restaurant or the county.

It is stated on the menu as a 1930’s Capone's Chicago Italian Beef sandwich.

Like she quoted me on Facebook as saying a month ago, I would have lived in that first French Onion bowl because it was that good.

Today, I wouldn't have fed that to my precious puppy.

You know better than anyone here the spoons they have are too flat and inadequate to even begin to eat French Onion soup from a coffee cup. I'm still completely perplexed on how I was being told they never served it in a bowl.

Okay, did Al insist it be pre-dipped in the kitchen?
