The oyster rockefellers were really good.

Love the general look, except not all candles were lit and the dark trim showed clearly that cleaning and dusting was not a priority. I the service was brought up to the same level as the food it would help. Our server did not understand about moving around a table and reached across even after the food was placed. She also literally snatched the extra silverware of the table, very rude as if to imply we either were to ignorant which of the utensils to use or perhaps were going to make off with it. The hostess looked like she was pulled in from a night out with GF's perhaps dressing a little more in keeping with the establishment would help, her attitude certainly was too snooty.

Nothing was fantastic that makes me want to come back. The service was dismal and prices were high for what we got

I was very disappointed with the salad wedge. It was not freshly made and the tomatoes were almost frozen. At a restaurant of this type, everything should be freshly made.

From Our Editors

All styles of homespun cooking share a certain warmth and character, regardless of their regional origins. Bistro 491 proves this by showing how comfort foods separated by an ocean complement each other perfectly. Built off rustic recipes from the French countryside, the plates here incorporate the distinctive flavors of the American South, accessorizing oysters with green-tomato relish or pork chops with macaroni gratin. Much like the order of colors in a rainbow, the menus rotate with the seasons; however, they always marry international styles of home cooking to create upscale yet accessible meals.

The dining room exudes a similarly inviting warmth. A padded bench runs the length of a wall lined with large, framed mirrors and glowing sconces. Opposite this wall hangs an orange and black mural, which adds a small splash of color amid the rows of tables dressed with crisp white linens and flickering candles. The bistro's Old World roots show a bit more in the entryway, which features walls plastered with wine labels.
