First Course bistro is a little bit of Soho, "oh so close to home", with its casual yet chic decor and its sophisticated yet comforting style of contemporary American cuisine. First Course is perfect for a creative start to your evening or for a multi-course evening of its own. Guests may relax on the comfy sofas, warm up by the fireplace or belly-up to the bar before enjoying one of the seasonally handcrafted meat, fish, pasta or tapas dishes. Check us out!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Service could have been more attentive, and could have been more helpful especially in suggesting a substitute for the sold-out lamb.We felt that the meals were really over priced for quality (steak and frites- far from a $33 plate) and portions (scallops -which were very flavorful). The appetizers and salad were exceptional in taste and just the right size though. Perhaps, why it is named "First Course"?Might return to see if the meals improve; after the appetizers and salad we were really expecting great meals. Turned out to be anticlimactic though. We wouldn't return if they were the same. Nov 16, 2014
