Bistro 1051 was a surprising find. The food was really good, and the service was excellent. We would definitely go back.

The food was fabulous. Our waiter Victor was very attentive. This dinner was a get together for birthday celebration for several girl friends. Everyone's dinner was outstanding. Highly recommend the seafood with linquine if you like seafood. This is one our favorite places to go for brunch or dinner.

First time here. We were a little put off when we first arrived as noise level was off the charts. In didn't help place was packed and a large loud group was next to us. Our server was attentive and helpful. Minor special requests were handled easily. Warm rolls were excellent. Food was first rate, obviously freshly prepared and entrees served hot. It's a byob which helps with cost. Thanks for a nice evening.

I thought the food was good but a bit pricey for what it was.
It got very loud, bad acoustics. Good for kids.

This is one of my favorite local eateries. Food is always fresh and service is always great! Our one gripe this visit was in what was supposedly out of attentiveness, our server (Tina - who other than this was actually very pleasant) first brought the bill without us asking for it (my all time pet peeve in any restaurant) because we said we were finishing our wine and didn’t want dessert - what if we had wanted espresso? Then asked multiple times if we were ok or needed anything else... again I get being attentive but it almost felt like she just wanted to Close out the tab despite various empty tables. We finally asked her if she needed the table because she kept asking if we needed anything else and she said no, and apologized.l as she was just trying to be attentive. We ordered espresso and asked for the bill. Please note despite this, a nearly 20% tip was left as the food was delicious as always and like I said, in general, service was fine. I personally don’t like to feel rushed or pressured to order something more or presented with a bill unless I ask for it. I am conscious and considerate enough to not occupy a table while nursing wine if a restaurant is full and waiting for tables to clear up to seat others, however that was not the case here.

When we arrived we told the manager that we had a reservation and were seated quickly. Apparently, he must not have let OpenTable know, since we got an email saying we missed our reservation. I’m not surprised by the lack of attention to detail, since after we were seated we noticed that guests were waiting at the entrance and not being serviced. The manager was in the back room talking to two guys who were not guests. The young hostess, who I guess is not allowed to seat guests, was trying to get the manager’s attention, but he ignored her for a few minutes. I guess talking to those two guys was more important than taking care of customers.

This is not what I’d call a high class restaurant. It is in a strip mall and the ambiance is nothing special, but their meals are pretty expensive. Also, my wife ordered a Buffalo chicken flat bread and the chicken was piled on so high you could not see the flat bread. I guess it sounds weird to be complaining about too much chicken, but meals should have the right proportion and this flat bread was really ridiculous.

There are plenty of good, reasonably priced Italian restaurants around, so we will not be back for again.

We can always count on quality food and friendly service. Sushi is not my thing but my girlfriend raves about it. They do not have a liquor license but the will gladly open your bottle.

I like this place because the food is good and they serve a weird combo of Italian and sushi. I haven't had a bad meal but it's popular so very loud. I will be going back.

This is a great local restaurant. Food and service were terrific as well as the pricing. I gave them a 3 for ambiance, which isn’t really fair. The two tables next to us were so loud that my date and I could barely hear each other which isn’t their fault 😀

I will definitely be back.

Jessica was the waitress who first waited on me back in 2012 and kept me coming back. It was great to see her again! My wife had her bridal shower and we had our rehearsal dinner at Bistro 1051. The food and Mike’s (the owner) hospitality is consistently first rate!

When my boyfriend suggested we try Bistro 1051, I was hesitant because they advertise their restaurant as specializing in Italian food, seafood, and sushi. I'm always a bit reluctant about going to restaurants that "specialize" in multiple cuisines. We decided try it anyway since it has 4 stars on Yelp. While we thought the ambiance is just mediocre - and the place does not have good acoustics and is quite noisy - the service and food were surprisingly good! (I have to admit we stayed away from raw fish.)

So, if you're in the mood for a very casual, laid back (although loud) dining experience, we'd recommend 1051. We're planning to return. :)
