I first visited L Bistro with my wife on our anniversary. I ordered the new york strip and I was absolutely amazed at how good it was. The steak was tender and had amazing flavor. Our waitress was fantastic and very helpful. Fast forward a couple weeks, me and a couple friends went there because I had such a great expereince the first time, once again I ordered the steak. This time the service was also wonderful and our waitress was very professional. When my streak came out this time, it was no where near how I ordered it. I ordered it medium rare, and it came out fully cooked. The meat had no flavor and tasted like compressed hamburger. It was by far the worst steak i ve ever eaten. I couldn t believe the change from one time to the next. The other guys were also a bit dissapointed in their meals. Great service, but can t say the same anymore about the food.
L'Bistro is the best restaurant in the Grand Forks area! The service was excellent. The wait staff was professional and right on us the whole time, refilling our drinks and attending to our requests.
The atmosphere reminded me of a restaurant that would typically be in a large city. Modern and sophisticated.
The food was excellent. I had Chicken Parmagana, and L'Bistro's famous Deep Fried Cheesecake for dessert. I was highly impressed with both.
Overall, L'Bistro would be an excellent choice to take a date or to go out with your friends.
Recently we thought we would try 'l Bistro. Upon entering the place looked nice and well kept. We were soon to be disappointed.
After a 15 minute wait our server finally stopped by our table. She walked past multiple times, and was cleaning the table behind us before she finally stopped. She didn't introduce herself at all, which I found very unprofessional so I don't even know her name! She quickly took our drink order. After another 20 minutes we finally got our Sprite. She took our food order and had to run to get my Italian Cream Soda. The Sprite was severely over charged. I could have bought 2 20 ounce bottles for that small glass. And we were never offered refills.
My Italian Soda was horrible. It tasted purely of club soda. I hardly had any orange taste to it at all.
My drink came 3 minutes before our food. The food was okay. We expected more for our money. We understand that it's a specialty hotel restaurant but I think we will be sticking to the American Grill at Hilton. Their food is better priced and you get way more better quality.
The breadsticks were hard. My chicken strips were okay, but for $8 bucks I expected way more than 5. My fiance's pasta was undercooked, but otherwise he says it was decent.
It was and hour and a half and $30 well wasted.
