Heavy - elegant
I purchased this flatware because the weight feels good in your hand. We use it everyday, but it also looks good for more formal occasions. This flatware was a good value

Fortessa Bistro flatware
We saw these in the store and both really liked all the pieces. We have a 40 year old set of very nice Swedish flatware. Overtime pieces have vanished, mainly teaspoons. The Swedish company still exists, but the pattern is long discontinued.

We also wanted a change of pace and Bistro fits the bill. The pieces are very well balanced, have excellent weight and a terrific hand feel.

We highly recommend this flatware to everyone.
We also like the Bistro pattern because it fits in with our overall contemporary design style

Love them
Great weight and balance. After a year (and many trips thru the dishwasher) they still look new. We have not had any trouble with the knifes but do use a steak knife when called for. I just wish Sir La Table carried some serving pieces.

Disappointed with knives
The flatware looks great and has a nice weight, feel and balance, but the knives don't cut very well. They seem to saw more than cut the food. So we were disappointed

Quality & stylish elegance at an affordable price!
Concur with all the positive reviews, as we have been using our first, new set since Christmas, (two+ months), and in fact, purchased a second set to leverage the e-mailed Sur La Table coupon after the first month. We have 8 place settings now, and also purchased sets of the matching serrated knives. Look, weight, size & washing machine durability make using this flatware a foodie's delight! Best value flatware purchase in our 27.5 years of marriage. Enjoy - we sure are!

Wonderful flatware and customer service
Beautiful flatware that is heavy and well balanced in the hand. I didn't really appreciate quality flatware until I began using. It seems to elevate my dining experience. There was a problem with my order that customer service took care of immediately. This was my first shopping experience with Sur La Table and it won't be my last.

beautiful flatware I am very pleased with our choice
Just received my order. Love it. My family likes it as well. It's simple and sturdy and looks great. We first used Fortessa in a restaurant a couple of years ago. I liked the feel of the flatware. It had substance. I made a note of the manufacturer. When It was time to replace our flatware I searched for Fortessa and found it at sur la table.

Gorgeous
I have finally found a flatware set that is both functional and gorgeous. I intended to use them as everyday... however I think I may save for special dinners or dinners with friends and family. The weight is perfectly balanced; and the knife cuts easily.

Great value. Thank you SLT....

Cracks and scratches
We ordered 3 sets of the 24 piece Bistro collection. As we began to unwrap each piece, it didn't take long to notice that many pieces of flatware had noticeable defects. We found cracks in a couple pieces, and many scratches on SEVERAL pieces. It was a huge disappointment. While beautiful to look at from a distance, and the weight feels good in your hand, the quality and craftsmanship definitely doesn't match the pricetag. We expected much more from a brand like Fortessa.

Composition?

Is this flatware 18/10 stainless steel? Many of the other designs by this manufacturer specify the stainless steel content but this one does not.
A shopper on Feb 19, 2012
Best Answer: Classic yet contemporary, this weighty, versatile flatware set features a handsome banded cuff and neck, with generous handles and a radiant mirror finish.

Bistro is steeped in the tradition of classic Parisian caf├ęs, but is perfect for contemporary settings that value quality and culture. Place setting includes salad fork, dinner fork, soup spoon, teaspoon and knife. Dishwasher safe. Made in Indonesia.

This flatware is made from 18/10 Stainless Steel

Is there a matching Fortess Bistro hostess or serving set?
A shopper on Oct 9, 2011
Best Answer: This is a classically beautiful set. Unfortunately we do not carry the serving pieces for this design. We do carry the Fortessa Grand City Serving pieces that are very neutral and go well with most of Fortessa's Flatware.

I just ordered and received the Forttessa Bistro sets (24) I received 6 pieces ea place setting. There is a small fork which I do not see shown and was wondering what this fork is for? I'm extremely pleased with the quality and beauty of this flateware.
Carol W on Apr 2, 2015
Best Answer: I have had this flatware for several months and have been very pleased with the quality and appearance. I have those little forks as well. I use them for appetizers.
