We have eaten there for lunch twice in the last month. Really great service especially from Taylor. Great food. The ambience on the patio is like dining outside in Europe.

Would highly recommend.

The restaurant is always consistent. Service is outstanding and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Inside it is a little noisy, but you can still have a conversation. I would recommend avoiding outside which is covered at this time if you do not want a lot of noise. Once it is warm enough to not be covered, outside will be perfect. The candle they bring out when someone has a birthday is worth going by itself. It is spectacular.

I ended up in Dallas on a Monday night on my 50th birthday with my daughter. Bistro 31 was recommended to us and did not disappoint. Very pretty little restaurant. Everyone was very attentive. We ordered the burrata salad, halibut special and short rib ragu. They treated us to the pear tart with blueberry compote. Everything was delicious and there were so many other options that sounded just as good!

I really liked the vibe of this place - upscale French bistro without being stuffy or pretentious. The escargot were some of the best I've ever had, and the seared fois gras was excellent. The steak au poivre was cooked perfectly and the waiter made sure my branzino was seasoned just right. The service was done very well, and we were not hurried at all. Overall, a tremendous experience.

We were greeted warmly as soon as we arrived. Our table by the window provided a nice ambiance. Taylor, our waitress, did a great job with providing friendly service and suggestions for our dining pleasure. Food came out hot but not in a hurry, which was perfect for us to relax and anticipate our chosen entree. The seafood risotto was delicious and satisfying. Adult beverage served up quickly and just the right amount of everything. Highly recommend!

We went to Bistro 31 to celebrate a friend's birthday and they couldn't have been nicer. They gave us a complimentary dessert to celebrate the birthday! The waiter was super nice and he explained a long list of daily specials. We all opted for the Bistro Salad and were not disappointed. I highly recommend Bistro 31 for lunch or dinner. The only hard part is the parking at HPV but there is a valet.

As is often the case, Bistro 31 was a great recommendation found via OpenTable. We had not tried a lot of the eateries in this neighborhood, but we were glad to be steered this direction. It helps that it was a perfect, temperate evening to enjoy the alfresco seating! The menu, while compact, is diverse with an impressive array of seafood options to choose from, and an equally impressive wine list. Our knowledgeable waiter (Mario) steered both of us towards wise choices for food, and we very pleased with our selections. For me, having a pasta meal where the pasta was served still steaming hot was a huge plus! We ended with a pear and ricotta torte topped with blueberries that was sinfully good! A great experience that confirmed - we will most certainly return, especially when entertaining our-of-towners.

Everything about the experience at Bistro 31 was great, but what really stood out was the service! Our server was phenomenal and seemed truly passionate about what he was doing. He spilled a couple drops of coffee on the tablecloth near me, and to apologize brought us a dessert duo on him - complete with sparkler candle! It was totally above and beyond, the most fun surprise, and made the entire experience feel super special. Also - order the s'mores chocolate mousse dessert, you will not regret it!
