Diner Reviews
  • "We had pre-fix lunch and all were good for the price, plus 20% off by Primecard. We will come back soon."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "Very good and well-prepared food at $75 a person for one plate and 2 drinks each, including tax and generous tip. In the past I found the service to be unfriendly and aloof, but this time the woman owner or manager came over to chat at my table and was charming and unobtrusive. The scallops were excellent (although the portion small) and my companion's hangar steak was tasty and nicely cooked. The French accents on the wait staff sounded real to me. We were unable to select our table in advance but we were seated at a very acceptable corner table and I did not feel the maitr' di had his hand out for greasing."

  • "Our party of four loved everything about Bistro Vendome from the delicious food to the attentive service to the warm and inviting ambiance. We will visit again when we are back in NY. We wish that there was a Bistro Vendome in our neighborhood."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Introduced a friend from the neighborhood and she was so surprised that this gem was there all the time completely unknown to her. This is my fourth time returning, each time with a different person and I have not been disappointed yet. Tables are nicely spaced within its tri level area. They have an outdoor space but can't vouch for that but the elevated indoor level overlooks it and is very bright and airy. Food is consistent and I am always happy to find a decent bottle of wine at a reasonable price. Service is prompt and feel that it is never rushed. Will be back again."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "The dining room in a townhouse space is small but well designed. The food was well prepared and service attentive. The only drawback is that nobody seems to know the wine list, so you're on your own in choosing."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "Decent neighborhood restaurant- nothing more, nothing less!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "On this return trip after one previous other meal at the restaurant I was extremely disappointed at the food. The artichoke salad was adequate. The mussels Meuniere were flavorless and almost not edible. I would never return to nor recommend this restaurant. The escargots were dry and flavorless."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "A perfect local eatery with consistent, well prepared food. They are known for their selection of mussels which are she of the best in the city. You may also enjoy well prepared beef French fare or an additional selection of fish dishes. You will not be disappointed."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "All the French classics and then some. Terrific cassoulet and steak frites. The artichoke salad is large enough to share. The profiterolles are a perfect way to end dinner."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "I enjoy this place so much and come here often….always good!"
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Last minute reservation for a table of 10. Noise level still allowed great conversation at the dinner table. The food was excellent and everyone had a terrific time. A great neighborhood find!"
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "WE FREQUENT BISTRO VENDOME AT LEAST ONCE A MONTH. WE LOVE IT!. FROM JUST MUSSELS TO THEIR SPECIALS, THEY ARE CONSISTENTLY GOOD. WE BROUGHT MANY FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS WITH US. WE'LL KEEP GOING BACK."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Always delicious, spacious, quiet enough to talk ... and a lovely outdoor space in warm weather."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "For a very relaxing and quiet lunch in the middle of the week Bistro Vendome is the restaurant of choice."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "I usually come for dinner, it was my first time for lunch. We sat on the upper level overlooking their outdoor terrace (unfortunately not opened yet). Their prix fixe lunch is a bargain. Food is always delicious, with generous portion. The service always impeccable. My husband had the Croque Monsieur, he said it was the best he ever had."
    Dined on 1/27/2014
  • "Whenever there is "Where shall we go" question with friends,we choose Bistro Vendome…always reliable and pleasant."
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "Ordered a duck dish which was lacking in size and the quality of the duck was poor along with the service that nite."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Wonderful prix fixe lunch, two or three courses, with many choices. The perfect place for a quiet lunch. Excellent service."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "I spent a very enjoyable valentines day dinner at this restaurant. The food was superb."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "This is a neighborhood gem and also a place worth traveling to if you are not local. Owned by a wonderful French couple, the food is the real thing. Marvelous muscles always and last week's bouillabaisse was out of this world! You will not be disappointed. Reserve a coveted outdoor table in season."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "This is the only restaurant I've dined at several times where I have not found one dish or side dish that is not prepared, served and presented impeccably every time. Great care is taken for any and everything present to the diner. From the mashed potatoes and the rack of lamb, to the filet mignon, duck confit, and chocolate fondant, everything is prepared with the utmost attention to detail and care to make sure everything you see, smell and taste is absolute perfection. There are a lot of restaurants that have specialty dishes that are prepared well, but others that you would never order. This restaurant is different in that no matter what you order everything that arrives at your table and everything on your plate is a delight to eat!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food was truly superb, the special prix fix menu for the holiday still offered a variety of delicious options. I'm 9 months pregnant and the staff was very accommodating, kind, and service was excellent. We will be returning to this great place. Beautiful view out the back windows!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "to a more comfortable, neighborhood find with a good wine list, varied menu and attentive service. The garden view is lovely but will be better when spring comes. Always a treat."
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "Plain said ... I love BV!! food is so consistent and always the right quantity, right temperature, right delivery!!! It' just plain good!!!"
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "Good food and service at a reasonable price in NY."
    Dined on 2/3/2014
  • "A great menu but I really love their hanger steak. And always perfectly cooked."
    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "The food was very good. We had their prix fix lunch. My problem was with the slow service, especially at lunch when one doesn't have all afternoon to linger over a meal. At the end of every course, we had to call a waiter over to tell him that we were done and the plates could be cleared."
    Dined on 1/20/2014
  • "My friend and I had basic things done well - mussels, steak frites - not spectacular, but good. What we really appreciated was the very mellow atmosphere. We only had a couple of glasses of wine from the decent selection and did not feel rushed at all. I'd recommend this as a good place for a business meal - a place where you can hear yourself talk! Nice to know places like this still exist."
    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "If you enjoy fine dining with the most delectable menu, look no further than this Eastside Gem. Nestled right off First Avenue on 58th Street this upscale Bistro with modest prices is a dining experience you will enjoy time and time again! The properties are simply wonderful as well!"
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "Vendome is consistently good .... food, service, wines. It has become my neighborhood "spot" for great dining and ambiance."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "I took my girlfriend there on a Friday night. She had the squash soup and beef tartar, I the fish soup and roast duck. Everything was very good, especially the duck. There was a very attentive staff as well, I don't think I even had the chance to refill my wine glass myself. The only blemish on the evening was a group of four next to us. As you sit in close quarters, they were pretty much knocking elbows. All we heard was their musings about how much money so and so made, and how many pilates classes the wives were taking. Overall a good experience, but I guess it was my own fault for expecting to be able to hear my girlfriend talk."
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "We were so happy to find this lovely place. It was quiet and the service was wonderful. I Recommend the chicken liver, tartare, and the shepherd's pie!"
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "This is a wonderful French bistro. While it is a neighborhood gem for those who live nearby, it is also a terrific restaurant for meeting friends and enjoying excellent food in a comfortable setting. It is worth the trip from out of the neighborhood. Don't miss the mussels, its their specialty."
    Dined on 1/3/2014
  • "Terrific food-entree best veal chop ever! Service very good as well."
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "The food was pretty good, but not great. I had the salmon which was not bad, but it was drowned in a sea of lentils (which i do not like). The service was painfully slow and confused, even though the restaurant was not crowded."
    Dined on 12/23/2013
  • "the Mussels Provencale are fantastic! Can't manage to try anything else because I love these so much. Onion soup was good-but needed to send it back because it wasn't hot the first time. It came out too fast to be totally fresh."
    Dined on 12/20/2013
  • "The service and food were excellent, from the duck liver pate to the apple tart. My husband, who is exacting about martinis, said the one he ordered was terrific, and it was poured at the table from an individual silver shaker. All the presentation, if fact, was most pleasing. I'd been here for lunch several times but never for dinner, but I'll be back in the evenings."
    Dined on 12/18/2013
  • "Nice neighborhood spot with excellent French food."
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "Went to celebrate a birthday with my best friend. Thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish. Exquisite experience from start to finish. Will return again and again. Thanks Bistro Vendome!"
    Dined on 12/10/2013
  • "Great Martinis Very fresh fish and side dishes Excellent service Virginia, the owner, walked around and greeted all the tables. Highly recommended"
