A group of us visited this bistro on a Monday evening. We had a reservation, so were seated immediately after a check of our Covid paperwork. The server arrived shortly to get our beverage orders. Later she took our food orders. My wife and I...each ordered the evening’s special, haddock with seafood risotto. Others ordered the seafood crepe, boeuf Bourgoin and fish and chips. Our meal was excellent. The others enjoyed their meals as well. The quantity of food was more than several of us could handle so ended up taking some home. The service was great. This place remains high on the group’s list of preferred restaurants.More

After far too many years I retuned to Le Bistro for a fabulous night. Liz and her delightful team run a tight ship with great food and a great atmosphere! Our waiter was friendly and had a nice sense of humor (which I played on...to great laughter). The french onion soup was superb ( as I remembered it) and the other dishes were equally as enjoyable! Will be back again (sooner than my past lapse) for sure.More

I took my daughter to this magical, Parisian inspired bistro this past Friday night. This was a restaurant that I had gone to in the 80's with my mother and hadn't revisisted in 30+ years. My, my, my... even better than I remembered. The food,...incredible. Probably the best mussels I have ever had, the coquille St.Jacque perfect and my daughters seafood crepe was exceptional. None of the seafood overcooked and the vegetables were also tender crisp. Great drinks and lovely cheesecake to end the night. Service was attentive, friendly in a warm cosy atmosphere. I can't wait to go back.More

We didn’t actually challenge them much as it was a brunch menu. We did however enjoy it very much. The best part was the server named Heidi. She was charming, prompt with a great sense of humour!

We were a reserved dinner party of 5. We were quickly greeted and seated to wait for our table. Two servers had our drinks and water to us quickly. The owner was on site and active. She shifted us to our table and Heidi was...in soon to take our orders. The food was excellent. Escargot, bruschetta, halibut... all beautifully prepared and delicious. During the meal, Heidi made a turn out of the kitchen and dropped a pile of clean dishes destined for the bar. Liz, the owner intervened immediately. She gave Heidi a pat on the back, said, it's ok Heidi, I've got this. Liz cleaned up the mess while Heidi carried on in this very busy environment. While the ambience and food here is fantastic, it was really gratifying to see an owner so engaged with her place and her staff. What could have been a stressful occurence for a server became a lesson in support and teamwork. If I was a twenty-something, I would want to work here. I am looking forward to tasting more on the menu next time I am in Halifax. Highly reccommend.More

Delicious French cuisine. The food and service were wonderful. The first time we went there was a small issue with my appetizer arriving at the same time as my main but they very graciously took the appetizer off the bill. Coquille Ste. Jacques was fantastic....Kristan our server both times was wonderful, a great personality and very professional.More

Last night my girlfriend and I went for dinner at this restaurant and we were so beyond impressed. The staff were attentive, friendly, entertaining, & knowledgeable. The restaurant was so busy but not once did that reflect on our experience. The food was sublime .....top quality really, & it came in a timely manner. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. The owner stopped by our table and we had a great conversation with her- she was really sweet. We had heard so many good things about le bistro by Liz , & we decided to check it out , we are soooo glad we did. We will be back 100%. Thank you for a great dining experience!!!More
