Pleasantly surprised – It took a few minutes to be greeted and seated, but that was the only disappointment of the evening. Once we were seated and the waiter showed up things started moving quickly. The appetizers arrived surprisingly quickly and were excellent, the vinaigrette they put on the salad was awesome, and the main dishes were incredible! Good portions, hot and fast service, and the best creme brulee we've found in Utah. This place has been on our list of restaurants to visit for a few years, now I'm glad we finally went but sad that it took us so long to get there. The atmosphere is comfortable and inviting and the decor is welcoming. We're adding this to our list of local favorites and we will definitely be back!
Great Food – One of the best restaurants in Ogden. It is local, and sometimes the owner is there mingling with guests; he's a really nice guy. The wine menu is fairly good, the food even better. Rice bowls for lunch are terrific. Diner items and specials have never disappointed. The best tomato bisque ever.
The only down is the service is on the slow side so don't go if you are in a rush. Go relaxed as europeans do and you will have an excellent experience.
Best Place to Eat in Ogden! – I went to Bistro 258 last night with a group of friends and it was amazing. Great food, great staff and the atmosphere was awesome. I couldn't stop eating the food was so good, my husband agreed it was well worth the trip from Draper!! I can't wait to go back and introduce more of my friends to this fabulous find!
Best Selection in Ogden – I have had numerous opportunities to sample the local flavor of Ogden since moving here last year. Every time I eat at the Bistro I am reminded why I come back. I love the atmosphere, the friendly wait staff and of course the food! It's a local favorite for a reason! The menu is awesome and I will continue to come back again and again!
Fraudulent charges!! – I dined at this restaurant last night, and authorized a charge for $86 (inclusive tips). When I looked on my bank account this morning, they took out TWO amounts, one for $104.60 and one for $164.60. Neither one of course was authorized.
I am not sure if the waiters cannot be trusted, or what the deal was, but needless to say I will not eat there again.

One of the Best Sandwiches I've had – My wife and I had lunch there today and were very impressed. My wife ordered the fish tacos and said they were great. I ordered this chicken, strawberry club sandwich at the recommendation of my waiter, and was surprised at how great it was. I'm already craving another. Seriously, it was that good. I had fries with mine, and I don't see how it would be possible to make fries any better. One other note, I really liked the sliced strawberry's they put in out waters.
I'm not typically up in Ogden, but I will certainly go there again when in the area. Too bad they aren't located closer to my home in Lehi.
My Favorite Place – This is my Favorite place in Ogden to go out for a nice dinner. I eat at other places for a quick bite, but when I want something really good I come here. They creative chefs have designed a fanastic menu that has something for everyone. There staff is great and I enjoy coming here again and again. I found their website so that I can talk my co-workers into going there for Lunch. bistro258.blogspot.
Great Service – We had read a few bad reviews and a few more good reviews about this place and decided to take a chance. We are glad we did. The food was great, my new york steak had a little too much fat (I hate fat on my steak), but the steak was big enough that I could cut the fat off and still walk out stuffed. They have an excellent spinach artichoke dip. The martinis were great. There garlic mashed potatoes were great. They had our table ready for us when we walked in the door with bread and butter waiting, strawberry slices in our water, and fresh flowers. The service was AWESOME!!!! We give this restaurant five stars and will definitely go there again.
Best place when in town – I live in Southern California and travel to Utah often for business meetings. I stopped at this restaurant initially due to the location (by the Marriott). On the first visit (a few years ago), the chocolate souflee was recommended. What an amazing treat it was after a great dinner. Since then, I have brought my team as well as customers there for dinners. The restaurant is cozy (I too have had the private room which is perfect for small parties), and it is a great choice for mixing dinner with good discussions.
I always find the service friendly with the owner often stopping by to ask about our dinner. The wine list is much better than others in the area, and everyone always enjoys the meals. The appetizers are a great start, salads are fresh, and I always save room for my dessert! I highly recommend the gooey warm center of that souflee (just perfect for one person)!
One of my favorites – I can not say enough good things about this place. The food was AMAZING. The service was impecable! I hosted a very small baby shower(only 4 of us). They let me drop off the centerpiece the day before and kept it. When we arrived, we got our own small room, the centerpiece was on the table and they gave us flowers on the table. We got water with strawberries(festive and delicious). They tended to our every needs and the owner came in to say hello and congratulate the mom to be. It was the most wonderful experience. The price is not too high and the food is worth every penny. I can not wait to eat there again.
