Restaurant Reviews

This is a very belated thank you note to you for the wonderful food, and service that you provided for us on Sunday, June 17. We had our son’s rehearsal dinner at Bistro 9 and I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed ourselves. Lindsay and her staff made sure that all our needs were met. The appetizers were wonderful, and when I notified Lindsay that my granddaughter had a peanut allergy she made sure that I was notified of any foods that contained peanuts. The entrees were cooked to perfection including the filets. All of our guests, most of whom were from Ct. were pleased with the service as well as the food. Again, I apologize for the tardiness of this note,but I feel that a business should be made aware of the good and bad of their organization and I must say, this time it is only good. Our best wishes for continued success and again thank you for making our “special event” very memorable.

I just wanted you all so much for a successful party last week. We had a great time – everything was perfect!

I want to thank you both on behalf of my son Brian and I for the wonderful coordination, planning and execution of the party for our husband/father . He was totally and completely surprised. All our guests were impressed with the food, service and venue of Bistro 9. The personal touches of photo menu cards and place cards added a fine touch to what was a wonderful party.

I want to thank you for doing such a great job on Saturday. Everything was wonderful. Most of the guests have never been there and everyone raved about the food and great service. Also, what a nice touch the printed menus were! Please thank Matt for me also; he was so efficient and accommodating. Traci really enjoyed herself and got some great gifts!

Thank you so much for the wonderful baby shower on Sunday. You and your staff were so attentive and helpful. The room looked beautiful and the food was excellent. Please pass along my appreciation to the chef. The next day I received some emails from friends who were at the shower and they said it was the best shower they had ever attended. If I hear of anyone who is looking for a place to have a shower/event I would without question recommend Bistro 9.

I want to thank you for you help planning Erick and Nicki’s dinner. Everything was perfect, food, service,decor and atmosphere. I have received many compliments about the night and know Erick and Nicki were pleased too. It was kind of you to store the Fenway Park cake until we could transport it to the reception site. I would recommend your services to anyone interested in hosting an event.

I cannot thank you enough for the great effort put forward for the coordination of my niece Stephanie’s bridal shower, which was held on Saturday, June 11, 2011. The shower took place on the patio and everything was presented so beautifully. You and your staff were so very courteous, accommodating, and well-organized. And many thanks to Aaron for the excellent food that was served. Everyone that attended the shower enjoyed the event immensely; I heard nothing but positive feedback – many compliments. Again thanks to you, the staff and Aaron for an excellent job well done.

“I can’t begin to tell you how many ladies at the bridal shower went out of their way to say what a wonderful time they had at the shower on Saturday. The food was delicious, the wait staff was accommodating and pleasant, and the patio was perfect. The sun coming out during the party was the icing on the cake! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making it all come together. It was a day my daughter will always remember.”

“Thank you so much for all of your hard work and efforts! It was a complete success! I am still getting phone calls and texts about what a blast everyone had. Hopefully after this event, it will bring you even more business. I just wanted to say thank you so much again. It was so much fun and Jilly loved it. I appreciate all of your hard work.”

I really hope somehow we can arrange to have our other 2 functions at your place too. Thanks again for all the extra touches you provided. The personalized menu was great and the beautiful flowers on the table were just perfect. I think this was the first visit to Bistro 9 for a lot of the people who attended. I have a feeling you will definitely see the ones that live in the area again soon. My friend Judy just loved it. It was actually through her that we heard about your place. It was a great suggestion. Thanks and I am sure I will see you again very soon”

“The shower was great- thanks to your help. I would not hesitate to recommend you to my friends.”

“My guests raved about the job you and your staff did at Bistro 9, everything was elegant and beautiful, the cake and cake stand looked amazing….my Dad was over-the-top thrilled with his party and the impression it made on his family and friends. You made the room look gorgeous. Bistro 9 staff could not possibly have been more accommodating to our guests, the service was impeccable. We had one guest who was not physically able to go to the buffet by himself — his wife was so grateful when Ashley immediately stepped in and brought him his salad, and later one of her wait staff stood in line to bring this gentleman his lunch. To say the service at Bistro 9 was outstanding is an understatement. And what can we say about Chef Aaron except that his dishes and presentation of food is better than most 5-star restaurants. Everything was beyond delicious!”

“We want to thank you for the wonderful job you and Chef Edwards did for us, nevertheless at the last minute! Everything was perfect, the food was excellent, and your attention to every detail did not go unrecognized!

“We are looking forward to the next time… We have already told several people”

“We went with two of the specialties of the house, and they were creative and delicious—combinations we would not have dreamed of. Don’t let the location at a country club put you off. It’s comfortable and masculine inside. Entrees are reasonably priced for this quality of food.”

“We had a great time!! Can’t wait to go back!”

“This place is fabulous… “THE CHEF ROCKS!” We had a crabcake appetizer that was presented really classy and they were a 10 in taste, and believe it or not, even the fish & chips were elevated in taste and presentation. I wish the owner the best, and I will be back!”

“Server was excellent. Food was delicious. Chocolate mousse cake was outstanding and beautifully presented with berries and chocolate sauce.”

“The atmosphere was delightful and the food was tremendous.”

“This was a delightful find, and we can thank Restaurant.com for leading us there. We dine out very often, will take a chance on a new place if Restaurant.com has something new, and found this new restaurant to have superb food, presentation, service—all the amenities of a much more experienced restaurant. Kudos to the chef!”

“Excellent food and service and exciting renovations happening.”

“Food couldn’t have been any better!!Excellent”

“We had a very nice time.”

“OK, get past the bland exterior- the interior has been completely renovated, classy and comfortable. Wait staff are excellent and food is good and well-presented, but the big surprise is the value!! The parking lot was jammed when we arrived at 5:30pm on a Sunday night- good news gets around!!!”

I just wanted to thank you for doing such a beautiful job on my mother’s birthday party Sunday night. To have put out all those fillet and get the temp so close to perfect is very impressive. I’ve been getting compliments for days. Matt was very personable and efficient and everyone really took notice. I’m sure you have gotten yourself quite a few new customers.

Thank you both for helping with arranging our party. Everything was wonderful. You are both so easy to work with and very responsive. I certainly sensed the personal touch you added for Judd.
