Jessica was my waitress for years. She always makes me feel welcome. The food is excellent as always and Mike the owner is the perfect host!

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. :)

We have been to this restaurant numerous times and always had an enjoyable dinner. This instance proved to be not the case. Service was extremely slow. We waited forty five minutes for our appetizer. The restaurant was crowded with a large party in the other room but it shouldn't have taken that long for our appetizer especially when we saw people come in after us and get theirs before us. We did get an apology from the manager so it eased the outlook a little. The food was good as always but we only wish it came a little quicker.

It's a byob. Has an Italian, American & sushi menu, good variety, prices average. Especially good for lunch, can get a little loud & crowded at dinner, but still good. We love it. Sometimes it gets crowded & it's not that big, so I recommend reservations.
