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 4.4 out of 5 by 920reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by We went to brunch and even though there were very few people there, service was slow. They also don't have a liquor license so make mixed drinks with saki, or wine etc and just wasn't that good. Aug 19, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Food and wine were both wonderful. Aug 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great food and service. 1/2 price bottles of wine on Tuesday was a nice surprise. The space is small, but didn't feel cramped. Nice, intimate setting. Aug 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by The waiter was the only server on duty and did a good job from recognition to service. There were about 6 tops occupied when we arrived. It took a "long normal" for the food, but it was worth the wait. This was the only small negative of the evening. Aug 11, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by The service was awful. The waiter never checked on me. I wanted another glass of wine, and my salad was not correct. Aug 5, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Waiter was very inattentive - said another waiter went home and they were short-staffed. While the food itself was interesting, it wasn't as good as the price indicates. Very expensive for what we got. Aug 4, 2014
