Service is lovely, food is top notch! Make sure to make a reservation to get a table as they are an intimate bistro with not much room. I always get excited to come back!

We went to Bistro 238 for our 5th anniversary dinner. The food and service were both excellent. This is a small restaurant so would recommend making reservations. Will definitely go back. The bread pudding is delicious but would like a little more sauce.
