Dining at Bistro VendomeMy experience at Bistro Vendome was excellent. We sat outside in the lovely garden and enjoyed the ambience of a garden atmosphere in the middle of the City. The service was very good. Attentive servers who knew the menu and could recommend good selections. We were both happy with the Tuesday price fix selections (although most came at additional charges). We ordered a bottle of wine which was good, but not the selection we had wanted and the waiter was able to correct that without a problem. The dessert was wonderful. A very nice evening. I would recommend Bistro Vendome especially for outdoor dining.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect celebration!I was celebrating my graduation and they were so thoughtful--made me feel like a queen!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMlove this place!I love Bistro Vendome it is always good will keep going back!!!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Brunch I've ever hadThis was truly amazing - each dish was actually so beautifully plated that I had to take a picture of it first! And they tasted even better than they looked, if you can believe it. I started with the Salade Campagnarde and the house-made bacon was perfect. But calling what it was topped with a "fried egg" doesn't even come close to doing it justice. This was an egg that Fernand Point would have been proud of! I kid you not, this could have come out of his kitchen.
Then on to the main course Porc Braisé et Epinards Crémés. This was simply the most incredibly Eggs Benedict ever - using pulled pork instead of ham is sheer genius!
Another of Jen's Jems! Beth Gruitch is shining too!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat hidden spotAfter booking the reservation and seeing the address I couldnt picture the location, after walking to the address it is tucked away a bit and the resaurant is beautiful, the food was delicious - the only small problem was the attentiveness of the waitstaff, it was Saturday so I understand but if you have a table of 6 obiously done with their dinner - please bring the check out or at least ask. Great place5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favorites!As always enjoy all elements of this restaurant.

I wanted to go back again the next day and repeat it - can't wait to go again.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways GreatWe eat at the restaurant before every play we attend. The service is always excellent as well as the food. The mussels were as large as we have seen them, and the fries always delicious.

The brunch menu was a nice selection with variety and really interesting dishes. The French pastries were unbelievable! Entrees were delicious.
This is one of those memorable meals.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNot enough of a good thingBistro Vendome is excellent. It's been a while since we'd been, and I wanted to treat my wife to a special Mother's Day Brunch. This was just the right place. Food was even better than we remembered it - just wasn't enough. The French Toast is out of this world.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversaryThis was the second anniversary we have eaten at Bistro Vendome and each experience was to shelf. The wait staff were all very friendly and the service was excellent. We had the Duck and it was outstanding. The recommended wine was perfect for our meal and we recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves French Cuisine and a very lovely evening out.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Scallops ever!A hidden gem with the best scallops and great wine! First of all, the outdoor garden is beauty and makes you feel like you are in France. Our server was really knowledgeable about wine and we were really satisfied with the two bottles of wine we ended up getting. We ordered the duck leg confit, pan-seared scallops, steak and halibut. Everything was cooked perfectly and we had a great time. The mussels, appetizer, was fresh and I would say the best mussels I've had in Denver. The scallop was my favorite because it was so perfect that it melts in my mouth. I thought Linger's scallop was perfect but this is better. I would definitely come back and I would love to try their brunch menu on a weekend afternoon.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMCrowded, good food & atmosphereNot much room at our table but great ambience, good food (best fries ever) and good wine list.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA rare treasureBistro Vendome continues to be my favorite restaurant in Denver.

Fabulous authentic country-french cuisine, with service to match. A relaxed, informal atmosphere. A knowledgeable and friendly wait-staff can help you through an impressive wine list. This was our third or fourth visit, with never a disappointment. Wonderful, rich onion soup, well-seasoned steak tartare, and lamb loin for me cooked to perfection, and a duck confit (daily special) for Judy--she wouldn't even share it!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time visitor and willFirst time visitor and will definitely be back again and again.

Anita Roberts4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMBistro Vendome has becomeBistro Vendome has become one of our absolute favorite spots in Denver. We have yet to try something we didn't enjoy. From their cheese plates, to the steak and frites, and even our Easter brunch was out of this world. We will continue to go back.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA great place to dine forA great place to dine for brunch. Not as memorable this time as they took off a very popular dish from their menu that I was looking forward to. The duck galette was an experience like none other. I asked the waiter what chocolate they used in their hot chocolate. He said Hershey's. Seriously? At a nice French bistro? Something wrong with this when there are great French chocolates that should be used to match the theme. Valhrona? That should be a no-brainer. Overall the food was delicious but not as memorable as times before. I don't know if a change in chefs is to blame or not. Macarons for dessert were memorable and outstanding!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMwe really like this placewe really like this place for special occasions and pretty much any time. The food is excellent, the service is very attentive without being fussy, the space is intimate without being crowded and overall it is a very consistently good experience.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved this place.

We were in downtown Denver to see a performance at the Buell Theatre and concluded with a fantastic meal at Bistro Vendome. Will definitely return.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great evening at BistroBistro Vendome never fails to provide a 1st class dining experience, whether it is brunch, lunch or dinner. We took some friends from New York last Friday evening, and they were astounded at this sophisticated and also approachable place. The amuse bouche was a minty pea and cream starter. We split 2 orders of the "shaved cucumber/crab" dish, and frankly we all wished we had ordered one for each of us, that appetizer went down fast and fresh. 2 people at our table had the scallops and pronounced them deliceous, 1 person had the 3 part seafood special for the evening which turned out to be a most unique dish, I had the mussels which are never as good anywhere else in Denver. The frites were passed around and enjoyed by everyone.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful, Comfortable FeelingMy wife and I have dined here twice and will continue to do so periodically when we go to Denver. The setting is wonderful, like being in a small French Bistro. The food is interesting and well prepared, and the wine list is reasonably priced and complements the food. Service is always excellent, informative and attentive without being intrusive. There is a slight tendency to try to hurry you through your meal, but if you resist - which we did - the waitstaff will back off. We prefer dining in the small dining room, rather than out in the entry hall; however, we're really looking forward to warmer weather when we can get a table outside on the charming patio. All in all, we rank Bistro Vendome among the better restaurants in Denver.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat pre-theater restaurant.Great pre-theater restaurant. The crepe hors d'oeuvre was fantastic, and both entrées were wonderful - great lamb and an interesting take on gnocchi.

Thank you for a most enjoyable evening. Joe.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBistro Vendome is truly aBistro Vendome is truly a diamond in the rough. The food is Art for the senses and the ambiance makes you feel like you have escaped to France. Colorado has a few good French Restaurants but this place stands alone as one that leaves you with a desire to return again and again. Next best thing? A trip to France.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
