Restaurant & Lounge with a View
Coming up on our one-year anniversary, Humboldt Bay Bistro has started fast out of the gate and is just as quickly becoming a date night go-to for many locals. Opened in April of 2016 by Chefs Even and Brett, this gorgeous bayfront setting brings together ambiance, service, location, setting and, of course fabulous cuisine in a California-French Nouveau fusion. With nearly 50 years of culinary expertise between them, and a 5-Star crew to back them up, we offer an upper-echelon dining experience with a lighter atmosphere.
We are certainly blessed to be located in an area which offers so many organically and family grown products that we are proud to have on our menu and your plate. To begin your evening, enjoy fresh locally harvested oysters, calamari fries, or a timeless classic Tableside Caesar for two. For entrees, you may enjoy our delectable duck in a Bing cherry-port reduction, perhaps our literal fresh-off-the-boat catch of the day, or transcend the elements with tender filet mignon and a butter-poached Maine lobster tail in a lovely surf and turf combo. For the bold, cap your evening off with a glazed Tahitian vanilla bean Crème Brûlée, a glass of Royal Tokaji… I promise, the only thing you may regret is not ordering seconds.
In our lounge, we offer local craft beers on tap, wine and house-made sake cocktails, which present a refreshing twist of the Orient on some traditional libations for the modern connoisseur. From classics (Cosmos and Gimlets) to contemporaries (Mojitos and Mules), the flavors and fun abound. So, enjoy one (or two) of our marquee mixes while taking in the picturesque view of Woodley Island Marina and the Samoa Bridge spanning the serene aquatic alcove.
So, come join us for dinner, drinks and delights in a lovely Victorian setting just NE of the Humboldt County Library. We look forward to having you and hope to see you soon. Cheers!
