Formerly Cordon Blue, we've been trying to get in for several weeks now and were finally able to because we went a little earlier than their busy hour. Recommend reservations.

My husband ordered the creole chicken special and ate every bit. My son ordered the duck and enjoyed that too. Fries were nice and crispy. I ordered the shrimp and it was delicious. Their vinaigrette is heavenly. We also got the escargot and surprisingly my son liked them too. The cream sauce is very good. The food is rich here.

Desserts were also excellent, lavender creme brûlée and hazelnut mousse.

What's also notable is the service--everyone who walked in was greeted like a good friend, and the decor is cozy, European, and casual. We can't wait to go back with more friends.

If you're in the mood for a change you must try this little hidden secret on tierra verde. Truly a fine French bistro. The service was as perfect as the meals served at our table. Everything was fresh and homemade. We felt we where in Paris at the corner of Rue de Claire. I highly recommend cordon bleau.

Yes, it is as good as it gets here at Cordon Bleu! This is the real deal from 2 natives of the Alsace Region in Eastern France not far from the Rhine River. St. Pete and especially Tierra Verde Florida are fortunate to have these guys relocate and open this restaurant who love to cook and entertain guests and know what they are doing! The ambiance is homey and unpretentious, a real treat! As a retired airline manager and experienced traveler, it's great to find a good home style Alsacienne Cafe right in Pinellas Co. that reminds you of places you've eaten in France.

On 5/25/17, we visited Cordon Bleu for the first time with our friends from France. We had a wonderful experience and will definitely to go back. Both the food and service were exquisite. I had the soup of the day which was a beet soup and it was wonderful...problem was that I had to share it with everyone!

Sebastian and David are excellent hosts and made us and our friends feel at home. We really enjoyed talking with them after dinner. They have created a wonderful, intimate dining experience in Tierra Verde. Cordon Bleu is a fun and delightful restaurant thanks to David and Sebastian. Thanks Guys!
