    Food was good. Everyone seemed to be trying their best but service was pretty slow. It's seems like they might be short-handed employee-wise.

    Pros: food was phenomenal and time of arrival was perfect, no issues there. Great cocktails. Cons: Seated 30 minutes past actual reservation. Entire bar area swamped, so nothing to do but stand in the very small area by hostess stand. No bussers, so overextended servers trying to keep up with orders, cocktail and food delivery, plate removal, water/coffee fill up, menu distribution…none of it went well from that perspective. Get that extra staff and I’d say things would’ve gone more smoothly.

    Excellent food and great bartenders. Our table was not ready (arrived 5 minutes early) so we sat at bar for about 20 minutes. Hostess forgot about us and seated another couple ahead of us. They gave us a round of drinks on the house and we enjoyed a great evening of food and drink in the bar instead. No harm, no foul!

    We found American Bistro by looking for local places with great reviews. We arrived and were promptly seated and then began the disappointments. Our waiter was distracted, asked us the same questions multiple times, and they were out of several things. We were especially excited about their drink and wine list- they DID NOT have many of the items bragged about in other reviews. I ordered Chandon wine and they only had cheap Frexieniet. Our food was pretty good but nothing to brag about. We were very underwhelmed.

    We sat on patio. Really nice. My wife has tomato allergy. Most places bring ketchup with fries not thinking. Our waitress apologized for not bringing bread. She didn’t want to take a chance someone with a dish with tomatoes on might of grabbed dread. Will always go back. Was our first time.

    Went here for my friend’s birthday. I am giving a 5 star rating even though they ignored the reservation made for a birthday and didn’t even wish my friend happy birthday. But the server was very friendly and nice and I don’t think the hostess told him that the reservation was to celebrate a birthday. We waited at the hostess stand for a good 5 minutes before she got there and didn’t even apologize for the delay and no smile on her face. Food was good and the server didn’t rush us and let us take our time. He also stopped by multiple times to check on us. We were both vegetarians and there were some good vegetarian options. Good food, great server, not so good hostess. Overall 5 star experience.

    Northstar Bistro never disappoints. It is a local, go to restaurant that offers great food, cozy ambience, good service at reasonable prices. We had friends visiting from out of town and they wanted fish fry. They had the perch and it was very much to their liking. We had a lovely dining experience.

    My friend loved her short ribs--they did look delicious. I ordered the beet salad which was plentiful but very much overdressed. The dressing overpowered the greens and other flavors. Our waitress brought the bill without asking about dessert which we did order. The fruit cobbler was just OK with too much hard crumbles and not enough fruit. The creme brulee could have been more firm. It's been awhile since I've been to North Star and was a bit disappointed this time. I've always felt it was a special place with totally yummy food. I hope this was just a not so good day out of many better ones.

    Everything was delicious. I found the cheesecake to be simple...in a good way. It didn't seem to have a lot of unnecessary fillers. Just a simple cheesecake with quality ingredients. I didn't feel stuffed after eating it.
