Our dishes were excellent, from a good selection of genuine French recipes. The prices were reasonable, on both food and wines. We couldn't understand why there was only one server and a lot of empty tables. Okay, so the decor is old and needs an upgrade, but with food this good, it should be packed. We are going back again... More

A Groupon was our ticket to this little gem. Probably not the most ideal place to bring a toddler, but they seemed tolerant. This was probably my favorite dining experience of the week. We all ordered the filet, and I have to say it was the best I have had in years. It was served on a bed of creamy... More

Food was just ok so really not worth the high price paid even at a discount. Expecting much more flavor for the prices charged. Staff was friendly and pleasant and outdoor seating was nice on a gorgeous evening.

This so called fine French restaurant is anything but. My wife and I ordered two items that we thought the restaurant would excel at preparing: Beef Bourguignon and Pulled Duck Confit with Angel Hair Pasta. The Beef Bourguignon consisted of sever chunks of very tough and stringy beef atop a mound of mashed potatoes surrounded by several small overcooked carrots,... More

Watered down wine, mediocre food, server talked to my wife almost the whole time and barely acknowledged me, groupon price was the same as full price. Horrible time, just wanted to leave.

Paris is one of my favorite cities,- restaurants in Paris are just simply the best. But this place reminds me a lot of a typical bistro in St. Germain, Clichy or Rive Gauche. Friendly waiter having time for a little chat and explaining the dishes. The shrimp as appetizer was excellent,- the lobster juicy, just as I like it,- the... More

Great value and even better service provided by our server, Fransisco! He was a true professional, personable and a great conversationalist! Two of us enjoyed the awesome lobster Groupon special and two ordered off the menu and were completely satisfied with the flavor, portions and freshness. We highly recommend Bistro 1902!

With so many voices on the boulevard, I am glad I stopped here for lunch. What a gem Bistro 1902 is. I started with the French onion soup. Delicious. I then had the Parisian Crepe. Ham, mushrooms in a creme sauce Topped with several wedges of Brie. All served with a side of the best thin crisp French fries. Add... More

Everything was good. I've never been to France but if the food is this good I can't wait to go. The menu options are limited and it's a little pricey but good. Be prepared to find parking and walk or valet. Give yourself plenty of patience and time to get there.

Description
General

We invite lovers of great food and wine to experience the casual atmosphere and the authentic French cuisine of Bistro 1902. Our location in downtown Hollywood is styled in tradition of these small Parisian restaurants, starting from the bottle in which we serve you water, ending with the cup in which we serve your cappuccino. And just like these early establishments we are family-owned and family-operated.

When you come to dine with us you are our guest, and we cook for you as we would for
ourselves. That is the reason why we only serve the finest, freshest and most natural ingredients. We are constantly exploring new alternatives to ensure that we put only the best in the dishes we prepare for you.

Bistro 1902 combines a quaint, familiar ambiance with decades of experiences. All our dishes are closely monitored by our head chef, who uses every bit of the knowledge he acquired in the 25 years he spent cooking in 4 and 5 star hotels and restaurants throughout Fr
