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 2 out of 5 by The food was OK, but not exceptional. For the price I expected a little more in quantity and in presentation of the food. We also ordered a couple of food orders to go. It appears they are not equipped for orders to go. They did not have 'to go' containers, so they put the food on paper plates and covered them with aluminum foil, then asked if we would want a plastic bag to put the plates in, because they didn't know how else they could be carried.

Rated 4 out of 5 by The atmosphere was cozy and quaint, and the food was excellent.The service was a little less than desirable. Jun 30, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by The interior of the restaurant was over airconditioned so we opted for the patio. The patio was exposed to an endless barrage of incoming airtraffic and city busses. Jun 28, 2014
