Reviews for Vanessa's Bistro

The place is cute and has very limited outdoor dining. They have a bunch of small plates to share, we ordered garlic noodles, egg rolls, shrimp, pork loin (strips?), and bok choy. Everything we had was more on the salty side but everything was flavorful. We finished most of our dishes since the portions were small enough for two people.

The establishment is more of an upscale western Vietnamese spot, not your traditional pho or vermicelli items are on the menu.

Wow finally checked this place out and we are delightfully surprised at how tasty and special it was! Walked by the place dozens of times without really noticing it, so glad we spontaneously tried it out. Every bite was noteworthy, so impressed with the flavors. Amazing value for money, and excellent service. Can't wait to go back!

Pros: - Very quick, clean, and safe pickup services! We called, placed an order, and showed up 15 minutes later to a bundle of hot food. Sanitizer available outside the door. - Relatively inexpensive for dinner prices. We each got an entree which was $13. - Z's claypot rice was pretty delicious. There was a nice grilled/smoky flavor in the rice. If I could reorder I would go with this one. - Free delivery within 3 miles M-F from 4-8 pm. Cons: - A little bland? I got Vanessa' full review
