Reviews for Vanessa's Bistro

Went to Vanessa's this week for take out. I don't know how they are doing it, but they are keeping their entire menu going and it is great. I called the order in a couple of hours earlier and they met me at the door with the bag. We really need to support our local restaurants who are trying to stay open for us. I highly recommend the petrole sole/crab dish and the petrole sole tacos. Both were really fresh and just as good as if we were sitting in the restaurant. Thank full review

We ordered a pear salad with candied walnuts. They sent the salad out with 2 big globs of candied walnuts all stuck together, about the size of a whole walnut each. I told the server to take it back to the kitchen so they could bring out the sledgehammer and bust up the chunks into edible-sized pieces, which they did. Too bad the walnuts tasted stale as a piece of bread from the 6th century. How embarrassing.

Well what can a man who loves Thai food say! I've driven by this place thousands of times. I kept hearing the HH was the bomb. I also heard the dishes were Thai fusion-ish. Which may have influenced my tardy attendance to check it out. My loss! The place was busy on a Friday night post HH. But immediately Vi, the bar tender/owners daughter apologized up front that they were short staffed. All that means to me is we are taking our time and enjoying watching the warriors full review
