This is our special restaurant when we want a treat. The people and food are fantastic. The environment is like a little trip to France without the airport. We enjoyed it so much we had our wedding rehersal dinner there and everyone just loved everything about it. Many have gone back to try different things. I may not make it to France but I feel like I will have had a wonderful experience of French cooking.
This is my new favorite restaurant in the area.
Being French I certainly have a weakness for French food but I also systematically compare with the quality I can get back home.
In this case it definitely compares with the best you can get in France, with very fine cuisine in a friendly and quiet atmosphere. If this is what you like, you will love le Petit Bistro.
Their meats are really good, so I am not afraid to ask for medium-rare; their appetizers are also very enjoyable whether you get a soup or try my favorite snails.
Regarding deserts, I am not a dessert person but I remember enjoying all the one I got there even when I was already pretty satisfied with the salty foods.
The atmosphere is the one of a good French restaurant, quiet but friendly; the place's owners are serving you with the dedication, and make you feel at home by offering their recommendations and describing with thorough details the dishes you ask about.
Ordered the daily menu written on the blackboard - salmon and duck dish after a bowl of inion soup. Love them all. It was a crowded Friday nite. We had to wait 30 min although we made a reservation. But the food was good. The wine selection is great, so was the pipe music. Will come again.
Great restaurant with great food and superb french style food with excellent service. The wine list accommodates the dishes and food portion are certainly bigger than European norms. It is a perfect place for couples who wish to share a romantic dining out in a french bistro style restaurant. Simple decorated and very cozy. The Duck a l'orange is very crispy as well as the Fish of the day is always well garnished with fresh vegetables of the day. I would certainly recommend to anyone who loves french style bistro food.
My husband took me to Le Bistro on a Wednesday night for my birthday. This place is hard to find, but oh, so worth it! The baguette slices were a perfect combination of soft and crusty, the duck liver pate was flavorful and delicious. I had the night's special fish, almond butter salmon, and it was tender and bursting wish flavor. The steamed veggies - pieces of asparagus, green beans, and cumin carrots - were still crispy. I can't say anything about the wild rice cake, but, frankly, it was a blessing to have SOMETHING on that plate I could leave. My husband's steak disappeared too quickly for me to comment :)
With 2 desserts (an incredibly chocolaty chocolate mousse and a crepe du jour), a bottle of sparkling water, a tea and a coffee, the dinner cost about $90. I know we'll be back!
They were very accomodating and helpful. The waitress was so helpful and when we were undecided about ordering the soup, she even brought us a sample to try out. The food was good. The size of the filet mingnon was bigger than I expected and I had a hard time finishing. All the meats there are very good and the proportions are superb. I didn't care for the fish dishes as much but that is probably because I don't care for all of the cheese or the butter they add to it. The bread is really good .. very soft inside and crunchy crust. My table of 4 went through 3 bread baskets during our meal!
