They have a sign next to it that a Fairfield Inn is supposed to go in there.
I had a 30 + minute long call with owner who admitted major service / food issues. She said they actually removed some menu stuff because they just couldn't get it right. Great honesty from her. And I saw she really cared. Just staff left a bit to be desired and implementation.
Their food and service was their demise. The food was so bad the two times we went we had to send the food back to get redone and it still came out bad. Come on!
Throwing hundreds of thousands out made the place look nice, but throwing short skirts on the waitresses didn't make them better servers, service was slow as heck.
I really wanted to like the place but bad food is not worth going back for. It's too bad because it was a really nice looking place.

Bistro 33 succeeds in spite of itself because of the location and the outdoor seating area. With the fire pits, lounge seating, water views and lights in the trees it is a beautiful place to hang out. You can't miss it when walking or driving through Town Center. They have a good happy hour, too. The live music on Thursday nights and some Saturdays make it seem like the place to be or be seen.
I am hoping someone takes it over and makes it succesful. Especially in making a good value- Bistro 33 seems to do it.
I often hear complaints, however, about the service and have experienced it myself. Servers can be slow, unattentive and aloof. It seems they view themselves as people who fill orders and deliver food, when they get around to it, rather than people who are responsible for ensuring a good customer experience and selling their company's products.
O'Reilly's probably would have done well in the same location, but where they were, they just didn't have good visibility.
