Diner Reviews
  • "We've been to Bistro Vendome numerous times and it has never disappointed us. The food and service are consistently excellent, with a tab that's refreshingly reasonable in today's' marketplace. Fortunately, it's located right within our neighborhood, so we're always only a few blocks away from enjoying a fine meal. My favorite appetizer is the artichoke salad, and for the main course, the scallops, but in point of fact, everything that my wife and I have ever ordered from this establishment's menu has been delicious. Add to that a lovely setting, including a picturesque section for outdoor dining on a terrace, along with a friendly and hospitable staff, and you have all the ingredients of an ideal neighborhood oasis."

  • "Excellent food in an adorable restaurant. The frog's legs were outstanding."

  • "This restaurant is too expensive to be rushed out of it the way they did. They even took my bottle of beer with beer in it. Not going there anymore!"

  • "Nice atmosphere, delicious food. Each person had a different dish and all were excellent,especially the mussels. Would definitely return."

  • "the garden? or beneath the skylight several choices of what atmosphere to dine in. And the food is delicious. Been there many times and have taken guests there for lunch on several occasions."

  • "My wife and I joined our friends for brunch for the first time at Bistro Vendome. (My wife does the research and her choices are always excellent.) The prix fixe brunch included a drink, an entree, a beverage. Each of us ordered something different so that we could compare. I had the quiche special for the day: light, fluffy, tasty. Equal to the food was the setting. Bistro Vendome offers three levels: a lower party level, the street level that included a bar, and the upper level with a skylight. So it was a dramatic setting with a view to the outside garden--a special treat in Manhattan. Service was attentive and unobtrusive. The whole experience was relaxing, one conducive to easy conversation. We would definitely return."

  • "Although I have lived in Nyc for over 40 years I had never ventured in that street. What a nice surprise for my guests as well. Will definitely return maybe for dinner this time!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Bistro Vendome has just the right combination of good food, comfort, sophistication, and ambiance to make it a pleasure from all points of view. None of the other restaurants in the neighborhood have quite the same personality. I've been there twice and will go back. The outdoor garden is great, and indoors is wonderful too."

  • "The food is glorious. Artichoke salad prepared in a very original and delicious way. Mussels terrific;succulent and varied sauces. Duck best. When in season like now the soft shell is perfect. It's getting very popular so every table was taken and several by large groups which are inevitably very noisy."

  • "When recommended I checked the menus and saw practically nothing vegetarian for me. I called and was told that the chef would prepare something special. Indeed, the (simple) combination of vegetables was exceptional. And priced well. The other two in our party were happy with their scallops and sole meuniere (which was very pricey). And I think pleased with their wine selections as well. A lovely ambiance. But very noisy neighbors at the next table and around us. Tables a bit too close. Altering that would be a big advantage. Service excellent. Also they accommodated my guest's late plane arrival and that was much appreciated!"

  • "A beautiful restaurant especially on a nice day. We enjoyed outdoor dining very much, but food was a bit of a disappointment. I had soup of the day and beef tartar and honestly, I can make them much better at home. Eggs Benedict that my husband ordered seemed pretty good and so was the apple pie (sorry might have been called different name). So go for a good cocktail and to enjoy ambience with your family or friends! The service was not bad at all. "

  • "After being so sorry to have Jubilee close, friends invited me to try the new Jubilee on First Avenue twice and I was so disappointed. I am delighted to report that after asking a lot of questions I discovered that Bistro Vendome was owned and managed by one of the original Jubilee chefs. It has been a wonderful dixcovery."

  • "Great, authentic French bistro food. Attentive wait staff and good light upstairs. Will return."

  • "Not only is the classic French bistro fare top-notch, the service is always friendly and accommodating. My husband had filet mignon with frites, our guest ordered scallops, and I enjoyed the quenelles of pike in langoustine sauce - a bistro dish nearly impossible to get outside of France. The quenelles were light and airy, the sauce intensely flavorful. And when a fourth in our party was detained and couldn't join us, the restaurant made up a dinner and dessert to go for him, timing it to be ready to go close to when we were. A delightful place!"

  • "I had dinner Weds. night with my friend from Boston and recommended the wonderful artichoke appetizer…….what a disappointment…it must have been a different chef…the dressing was different and mediocre…..otherwise,everything else was satisfactory."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "Bistro Vendome was new for us and it didn't disappoint in any way. The service/food/venue combination was as advertised; Bistro fare with a New York touch. The Mussels were excellent, wine list was good and we particularly liked having a bit more space than in traditional NY restaurants."

  • "Garden outside makes wonderful food and service even better. "
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "Some of the food was very tasty & some: not so much. So it was a 50/50 chance you take there."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I love this restaurant and am always comfortable recommending it to foodie friends. I always have escargots and as a result often miss other superb appetizers. Terrific bartender. Great fish, duck, etc. price better than any equal."

  • "I brought a nebie to the restaurant and she fell in love with it too. I have been for lunch, brunch and dinners and I am never disappointed. The service is attentive without being pushy and the food is always using fresh and tasteful ingredients to form a creative menu. The appetizer selections are so good, I sometimes just order a few from there. The ambience is elegant, classic and comfortable. Enough space between tables for a relaxing dining experience. Since this is in a townhouse, there is also a wonderful outdoor deck in back. "

  • "I always try to order something different every time I visit this restaurant because the food is phenomenal and I haven't found a dish or item on any plate that wasn't spectacular! "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Everything was great. Excellent menu of French dishes. We all loved the foie gras - smooth and delicious. The mussels were the plumpest and freshest ever. The owners really care. Nice choice of well priced wines by the glass. Friendly service. So comfortable, it's one of our neighborhood regular favorites."

  • "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."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "I enjoy this place so much and come here often….always good!"
    Dined on 3/20/2014

  • "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."
