I walk pass The 808 Bistro daily and tonight I decided to try it for dinner with a friend. Saturday night, your best bet is to make a reservation! We walked in and were asked if we had a reservation, no we didn’t but it wasn’t long before the hostess sat us. Either way it’s a very comfortable, stylish atmosphere with a delightful and friendly staff. Place got a little loud as every table was taken and this restaurant definitely sees a full house on a Saturday night!

The place is gorgeous! Decor is trendy and has a great NYCesque vibe (with prices to match). I also noticed this place has a very attractive staff from waiters to busboys. The menu is awesome, so many great choices that I’m sure to return to try them all. Expect to pay minimally $17 for a dinner entree. I chose the rigatoni with sweet sausage which was fantastic! Friend chose the chicken parm. There are creative dishes on the menu as well as traditional Italian. Portions are hearty (not family style) and I walked away very satisfied.

808 Bistro is pretty trendy and stylish, I would advise dressing up. You don’t have to go nuts and yeah there were people in jeans (including myself and friend) and honestly I felt a tad outta place in such clothing. On the other hand I thought for a moment I was at the Housewives of Scarsdale audition as some people went a little over the top in their attire. Crowd tonight was a nice mix. I think 808 Bistro is a great restaurant to enjoy a pleasant evening with a few friends for a nice dinner! It’s very cool to have a restaurant like this in my neighborhood, I’ll be back!
