Here Are Some Things Our Guests Have To Say

Five stars

This restaurant was recommended as a great place for great food and they most certainly delivered! I advise you to make reservations in advance but we got lucky when we had a walk in. We were seated quickly and had our waiter serve us drinks promptly. The atmosphere was small, quaint, and simple but it definitely made a great opening impression, that of what a bistro should be. We ordered a couple of drinks and they were good. Mixed well and flavored good. We started with some appetizers: the Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp and the Firecracker Shrimp. Both were cooked very well-seasoned great and the sauces on both went phenomenally with the shrimp. The list for appetizers and entrees isn't overwhelming (thank goodness) but it was still pretty difficult to settle on just one. By the time we finished we finished our appetizers our entrees were coming out, which was perfect timing because we were starving. They were still hot and steaming, and they smelled and looked great. We went with the Stuffed Pork Chop and Bayou Chicken Pasta and I will honestly say that that Pork Chop was A-MAZ-ING!! One of the best meals that I've ever had. Did I mention that the customer Service was great?! What really sealed the deal for me is when the Owner came up and asked us about our meal and evening. Normally I'm asked how was my meal after I'm presented with the check but he approached us when we were eating out entree with what felt like a genuine concern for how his establishment was being operated. Kudos and brownie points. Last but certainly not least, the desserts. We were borderline full from the appetizers and entrees but we decided to try some desserts anyways and it was a great decision. They were great. All in all the atmosphere and experience was a 4.5 out of 5, customer Service was a 5 out of 5, and the food was a 5 out of 5. I had one of the best dining experiences I have ever had at any restaurant and I most certainly will be returning. Until we meet again "Bistro on the Boulevard"

Me and my wife recently discovered the Bistro on the Blvd to see a friend who was performing there. This place on occasion has live music. The food was very good and reasonably priced. The owner visited our table during our meal and was genuinely interested in our experience and wanted to make sure everything was to our liking. I would recommend that anyone living in the Irmo area looking for a place to dine with good atmosphere and live music give this place a try.

One of my favorite places. Relaxed live music Friday and Saturday. I am only half way through the menu, and every dish is delicious!

We wound up here on a Friday night for dinner, and were very satisfied! There was live music (that wasn't too loud), and the atmosphere was very nice. Staff was very attentive (but not overly so where they keep bugging you) and friendly. I had potato crusted fish and it was delicious. After a year and a half in Columbia, I haven't been too impressed with the food, but this place was great! Definitely on my favorites list, and can't wait to come back.

Drove from Augusta Ga to try the food for our anniversary. If you could test the IQ of the pistachio grouper it would be declared "brilliant "! Asparagus was perfectly cooked; keeping its firmness and flavor. The Mrs. enjoyed the ribeye and wasn't dissatisfied with any part of the experience. The waiter was alert and knowledgeable. Owner went to each table asking if all was Ok. Will tell all in Augusta about Irmo's finest! We will drive the 75 miles again and not bat an eye to eat at this fantastic eatery. See y'all soon.

I don’t normally venture outside downtown Columbia and the Congaree Vista, but this was an absolutely wonderful venture from my comfort zone. The food was fabulous and the service was beyond words. The locals clearly already know, but for those like me that stick to Forest Acres, Rosewood, and the Vista: Take the extra 15 minute drive and check out Bistro! I guarantee you will not be disappointed!
