Simply Unethical – They are spammers and entirely unethical, do not do business with them. After numerous complaints about being on their email lists I still get regular emails, their unsubscribe methods do not work at all. From what I can tell their actions are simply illegal. I can't understand how any legitimate business would behave like that, with no common decency and don't see how anyone could support such a business.
Very different – I had a culture shock...but in a good way.When you walk in you dont know what to expect but within 3 minutes i was fairly impressed.Their crabcakes are okay..timing and service was very good.Our server was very friendly and made sure we were taken care of.We will be back next two weeks:)
Honesty – I can describe london bistro in 3 words, they all start with "A": Awful, Awful, Awful.
When my fiance and I arrived, an employee came to the door and eagerly sat us, very kind and welcoming. We were asked if we could be started on some drinks, we decided on water. The music was a bit loud when we entered, but we noticed that the volume was increasing at an alarming rate within the 10 minutes we had to look over the menu.
My fiance ordered Lamb and I got some Fried Green tomatoes to start. Conversation began to become more and more difficult as our food was being prepared as the music had grown even LOUDER. There weren't many people there yet (it was around 9 o'clock) but the owner was bumping the roof off of this place like some sort of club. Again, not many people, no one was dancing.
Our order came out and I had to catch my jaw before it hit the table: THREE THINLY sliced fried green tomatoes and THREE shrimp. After paying what i did for the meal I expected something a little more satisfying. My fiance's Lamb, on the other hand, looked decent, and I was ready to have a taste when I saw her cut it open...nearly the entire chop was FAT.
We cut our losses and ordered some drinks, since we had a coupon and had to spend at least $40. By the time we were half into our "meal" we noticed significantly more people had come in, all ordering drinks and dancing about the venue.
I was unaware this was a CLUB! In my book, as well as many of your's, I'm sure, clubbing and dinner do not go together. Since we had had a few drinks, we had decided to dry out for a bit before we left and see how the night unfolded.
LO and BEHOLD, by the end of the night even shouting to my fiance, who was right next to me, wasn't an option. Many of the youths who had entered were now being belligerent and spilling drinks. On my adventure in the bathroom I found an empty bottle of patron in the garbage. People were bringing in their OWN alcohol and using this place as some kind of personal party house. I also found that a couple of the guests there were friends of the man i was told to be the owner.
We requested our bill and the server apologized for any troubles we had there that night; They could tell we were not happy.
Horribly understaffed, there were easily more than 80 people there, with only 2 servers and 2 bartenders. I would've had a word with said "owner" if the relatively small restaurant / now club wasn't packed with people and empty liquor containers across the ground.
My fiance and I will NEVER return here and for your sake, I hope you never have a first time. This is a result of a man with a plan and absolutely ZERO management skills.
LONDON BISTRO-I LOVED IT – Guys,i kept hearing about this place and everything was very nice.The ambience,the service was excellent and the food was simple but great.They played great music.I like their themed nights etc.Overall it was great.We will be definately going buk at least once a week!Loved it!!
Great music, Great drinks, gerat date – Had a date night at London Bistro and it was great! Music, drinks and atmosphere made for an awesome evening and I'll def go back. Highly recommend this place
Great music, sexy people – I have been going to the Mexican restaurant that used to be here for ages before London Bistro took over. I was certainly glad i checked them out, the music was great, the wait staff was very friendly and the food was amazing. Its not a huge place so it certainly fees very intimate. Yummy drinks!!
Super hot spot for a martini – Love having my girls night out here. Drinks are great and the gentlemen are extremely handsome ;-)
Howell Mill's Best Kept Secret – We hosted a birthday party at London Bistro a couple of weeks ago and had a BLAST! We reserved the entire patio and it was perfect. One would think that the street traffic during rush hour would interrupt dinner, etc., but it wasn't a factor at all! Besides the fact that the food was AMAZING and AFFORDABLE, the staff was UNBELIEVABLE. Everyone there was so nice and accommodating - never before have I been to a restaurant and gotten so much attention. Loved the venue - big enough to see interesting people - small enough to feel intimate. You should definitely check this place out. We went on a Friday night and enjoyed a DJ and live music. Call ahead to see what entertainment there will be, but you won't care once you taste the shrimp & grits! ;) I will DEFINITELY return!
Great spot – Cool spot, the outdoor patio is pretty cool. Had the salmon and it was quite tasty.
Great food – I was invited by the owner for a pre-opening food tasting. The food was AMAZING, i can't wait for this place to open. I believe labor day weekend was supposed to be the week it opens its doors to the public.
