From the starters to the desert, every course was perfect! The service was world class and the atmosphere was festive. Well done on delivering an exceptional experience even though we were a large group and the restaurant was full.

Not many restaurants get nacho’s right but at 1904 Bistro they got it spot on. No pizzas on the menu so we decided to have their fish cakes with coleslaw and chips. Absolutely delicious and a generous helping. For a large restaurant the ambience is...great, service top notch and a great menu. Definitely will be back.More

This restaurant went the extra mile to create a very welcoming environment. Everything is best and tidy. The food is superb! It was a great experience! I wish it was closer to our home so we could come again and again.

We had a family meal, staff very welcoming and helpful. Geraldine, our waitress was amazing. Menu is extensive and we selected a variety of dishes, all of which were excellent. Best of all was Ryan the chef, with his off menu secret sauces that were...delicious. I had the voodoo sauce which was amazing. Ryan has a selection of recipes that he introduces to the menu and he is happy to talk through them. An outstanding restaurant and chef.More

Cool American atmosphere with fast and effective service. Steak was perfect. Menu diverse and can accommodate anyone. Food not only tastes terrific, it is a feast for the eyes as well.

The first time I went there, I had an amazing experience. But tonight I had an appaling experience. The manager, Jolene, was racist and had degrading undertones! I practically couldn't believe it!

We were warmly welcomed and quickly served freshly sanitized menus and drinks;(there is a HUGE choice of alcoholic drinks BUT, lockdown restrictions eliminated that choice!). There is a wide ranging menu but steaks, burgers and mixed sea-food dishes are the best. Chairs were comfortable and...the background music just right. Food came quickly and the steak was just right - the pulled pork was delicious. One member found the ribs a bit tougher than expected and the glaze on my delicious creme brulee was a bit thick, but it was an altogether nice dining experience. Prices are a little high for mid-range but not excessive.More

Our first experience here at 1904, and we'll definitely be back! The decor, ambience, and service were absolutely amazing. There is something for everyone here. Steaks, ribs, chicken, burgers, freak shakes, you name it. Quite possibly the nicest fillet I've ever eaten. A special mention...to our fabulous waiter Torres, for the outstanding service we received. Him and his sidekick were so knowledgeable and attentive. Look forward to a return visit there!!More

Shocking service, the management staff of the restaurant were rude and disrespectful after I complained about the food that wasn’t what was presented on the menu. The food isn’t great either. Definitely won’t be going back to this restaurant.

hi, last night my family went out for supper, to my surprise when we ordered 12x buffalo wings, which I expected real buffalo wings, but only tiny drumettes was brought to us, and when I asked the waiter he said that those were the buffalo...wings. I further told him that when I last visited the restaurant in December 2018 we ordered the same thing and it was those nice big buffalo wings, I asked him if their menu has changed, he informed that it was always the tiny drumettes. therefore I was not happy. Otherwise the atmosphere was okay.More
