Don’t Pass Go, “Go Directly to this Restaurant”. Don't let it being in a strip mall fool you, this is the finest cooking you'll find anywhere. We came upon it while cruising open table and it was like winning the lottery. We started with the Beet & Feta Cheese with toasted sunflower seeds, black truffle oil, and tomato vinaigrette. The...

Phenomenal meal and service. The owners made my wife's birthday very special. Fine cuisine with passion. Highly recommended. Not to be missed if you are a Sybaritic Epicurean like me.

Friends suggested we try this spot after seeing great reviews on Open Table. Wouldn't have stopped in to this strip-center location without the positive research. When we walked in for 8pm reservation, there was only one table seated. We wondered why... after an amazing dinner and solid service from Ray, we can't believe it wasn't full. We split cauliflower and... More

We went to Le Bistro a few months ago and we have been traveling so much I just haven't been able to write a review. We went for the Beef Wellington because neither my fiance nor I had ever had it before, and there are very few places around town to get it. Reviews on the restaurant were good, so... More

I love this little French/clean food resto. Hospitality by its owner is always great. Food is amazing, escargots....don't even have to mention...just fantastic. Pappardelle with "tartufo nero" (black truffle) freshly grated....OMG. Fresh halibut from west coast, really simple but really nice! To me, is a must when I travel or stop over in miami/ft Lauderdale area. Price range great. Wine... More

We read the reviews and were disappointed in what we found. We were excited to try the wonderful menu that was offered but was disappointed in what we got. We knew the location was in a strip mall, so we were prepared for the decor. When we ordered drinks, a certain beer was ordered and another was served and when... More

Went with some friends for a nice French dinner and was not disappointed. Kyle our server was excellent and had a great sense of humor. The food is all cooked from scratch (cooked to order not prepared ahead of time). My mushroom soup was outstanding with little touches that made the flavor jump out at you. I also had the... More

Just flew in from Chicago and was looking for a nice meal before delving into business. What a surprising find Le Bistro was! The server, Kyle, was very friendly and made some great recommendations. I was eventually introduced to the proprietors, Chef Andy and his wife Elin. They were incredibly welcoming, friendly and cordial. About the food ... I started... More

It's been awhile since I last ate at Le Bistro. I live about 30 minutes away and just haven't taken the time to go, what a mistake. Since my last visit the restaurant has been remodeled and the menu updated. The old favorites are still there, along with daily specials and some new regular dishes. The Foie Gras is the... More

Five of us visited Le Bistro for dinner. I’m sorry so much time passed since our previous visit. Wow, everything we had was just spectacular. Started with beet and feta salad, perfect balance of sweetness from the beets, acidity from the balsamic vinegar and saltiness from the feta cheese. This was likely the best beet salad I’ve had, and I... More
