O'Bistro in St. Pete

I can't seem to find a website or even any reviews for this place. Anyone had a great meal here? It's my birthday and I want to go somewhere with good food. Downtown is out because of the Grand Prix.

    I haven't been there, but I found this review online from the St. Pete Times


    If you end up there, please share your review!

      We used to go there quite frequently and really enjoyed it. The food was delicious, good service sitting at the bar to eat, and they have a fairly large selection of by-the-glass wines. But the last two times we were there, the food simply wasn't as good, so we haven't been there for several months. Not sure what was up - new chef or just off nights,maybe? If you decide to go there, I would be very interested to read your impressions of the place.

        So, Emma, did you go to O Bistro? If not, where did you go?

        Anyway, I hope you had a very happy birthday!

          This is a very late reply, but thank you debbed! I did end up going there. I had the salmon and while it wasn't overcooked I found the preparation to be rather forgettable. The waiter seemed lost. I told him I wanted my salmon without onion and he seemed confused, telling me it didn't come with onion. I had to show him the menu which clearly listed red onion as an ingredient. Putting that aside, it was an decent meal but I probably won't go back anytime soon. Too many other places to check out. :-)

            You're welcome!
            Sounds much like our last couple visits. But, as you said, there's a bunch more to try!
