Comfortably CreativeThis is a go-to restaurant in Roswell that clients and visitors will always enjoy. The menu is online, and the dishes often display some surprising creativity without being frightening. There are no foams or liquid nitrogen, just high-quality ingredients served with some tasteful flair. The bar is comfortable and welcoming, the decor simple and pleasant, and the service knowledgeable, helpful, and unpretentious. Diners tend to dress just one more notch to the casual than in Buckhead.
I often ask for and follow the server's suggestions, and have never been sorry. Management does a great job in selection and training, and has them sample the dishes so they speak from recent experience.
This restaurant is always a solid choice.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, as alwaysWe have visited VG on a number of occasions, dating back to when it was Van Gogh's. This time was Saturday night before Mother's Day and the place was very busy. Nevertheless, our reservation secured a table with no waiting and the food was excellent. Service was a bit slow, but our server and all others were working hard to compensate for the jam in the kitchen.
I had the 'Vinny's' Lasagna; my wife had the Red Snapper Special. We enjoyed both and can recommend highly. VG, Viny's and the other Sedgwick restaurants all have excellent bread -- definitely a feature of the place. And the proseco is reasonably priced as an aperitif.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time at Bistro VGWe had a group of six for dinner. None of us had eaten here before. We got there early and it was very pleasant. The waiter was very knowledgeable, but we did feel that we were being rushed. The diners started coming in and the restaurant was very crowded. It became so loud that we could not talk to each other. Even the waiter was having trouble communicating to us.
We were definitely rushed with dishes being picked up as soon as we finished, etc. The good thing is the food was excellent. But the sound (decible level was over 100) is just too annoying. We would recommend Bistro for the food with a warning about the sound level.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best dining in RoswellHands down the best dining in Roswell. From the food, atmosphere, to great service; this restaurant is outstanding. My only suggestion would be to include more gluten-free options.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMgood time & great foodGreat food, fresh, flavorful and cooked perfectly. Nice space, reminded me of a trendy Manhattan restaurant. As good as anything you would find intown.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining experienceMy wife and I enjoyed all aspects of dinner while we celebrated our anniversary. The scallops and short ribs were perfectly prepared. We will go back again.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBread was to die for--it comesBread was to die for--it comes from their bakery, Theo's. We went for lunch. Steak frites was cooked perfectly. Mushroom soup was close to cold, and I like soup simmering, close to tongue endangering. One of my pet peeves is no S&P on the table, but I must admit the food was well-seasoned.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great dinner at BistroAlways a great dinner at Bistro VG. Service was exceptional. Nightly specials of heirloom tomato gaspacho and tilefish entree were top notch. We'll be back.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a reservation and wereWe had a reservation and were sat at our table immediately with zero wait. The waiter did a nice job initially presenting the specials and offered guidance and recommendations for wine and dishes. My wife and I wanted some flexibility and were happily accommodated (we ordered the mussels, an entrée, and wanted to split it as an appetizer.) We found the food to be very tasty and fresh. The service was excellent, a very pleasant atmosphere. A good place for a date in Roswell and convenient. The easy on-site parking is small plus here when compared to some of the other places in Downtown Roswell.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb serviceWe had another great evening out at Bistro VG - Especially noteworthy this time was the excellent service we received from Terry.

Food was great, we had the steak frites, and scallops. Fantastic.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA favorite in the Roswell/AlpharettA favorite in the Roswell/Alpharetta area. A taste of Buckhead in the suburbs.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've been regulars here forWe've been regulars here for 15 years, through the Van Gogh stage to VG and have celebrated many family occasions here.I will happily sit at the bar table on my own and enjoy a glass of wine, good food and always some good company! Always good.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was outstanding!The food was outstanding! We will definitely be back!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was absolutelyThe service was absolutely excellent; our waiter was very attentive ensuring the food and drink was to our specifications and liking. The food was cooked exactly as ordered; the salad was crisp and the white bean soup left you wanting more! I always select this location to meet with people from out of town! I've never been displeased which mean Bistro VG is batting a 100% for me. Thanks for a great evening.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOK, but not on the top of our listI did not check the "romantic" icon because the new decor is rather stark. It is an older building. I found the exposed painted walls somewhat bland rather than enhancing the ambiance. My test of a restaurant is the duck. The breast was done very well, the leg tasted like it had been refrigerated for a week. My companion loved her entree. At some point, we may return.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA gem of a restaurant!We had dinner here for our anniversary. We were glad to see that our favorite waiter was still there and he guided us through the menu. The food was fabulous and served piping hot. They even gave us complimentary glasses of champagne when we told them why we were there. The crabcakes are superb! If you have not been here, give it a try. You will not be disappointed!4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food and warm, friendlyWonderful food and warm, friendly service. We will return!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a delightful brunch,We had a delightful brunch, good food and service and were seated in a good location, not too cramped. I also believe that it was wonderful because of the time we picked, was about 30 minutes after they opened, so felt very fresh. I would recommend for something special.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe patronized this restaurantWe patronized this restaurant for years when it was Van Gogh's, before they changed the concept. It was very dark and masculine then, but very rich in decor. The new "VG Bistro" is lovely. It is all light creamy white, so it seems larger, yet still has intimate nooks. The food is different, but as good as always and the service is superior. We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience, in this case for Easter brunch.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous meal and great service.Fabulous meal and great service. Despite it being prom night, we had exceptional service and each dish was delicious and beautifully presented.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMHolding it's stellar reputation...Dined at VG again after not being there for several years. Still a "stand alone" in the N. Suburbs of ATL. Food is stellar. We tried the cheese and meats groupings as an appetizer with the table of four we were with. Very high quality, "European" in presentation with the board served upon, etc.. Halibut and Salmon were both delicious for entree. Sugared beignets with dipping sauces for dessert were decadent. I don't write many reviews unless the overall experience is worth the time and energy to log on and say something. VG Bistro (used to be called Van Goghs) is worth the drive, the wait, the price.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMService was very good. TheService was very good. The food was only fair. It is not French cooking as it is Northern Itlalian.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat celebration nightWe had an outstanding meal for our adult son's birthday. The only downside was that we were seated at an awkward table just inside the bar area. Our table was too close to the bar table right next to us and people could not get through without bumping my chair (which happened a lot).The table was also very close to the front door on a cold night. We had a late reservation and I am certain that a party of 7 could have been seated in the dining room. It made us feel unwelcome. The food, however, more than made up for the seating arrangement. Everything was fantastic! My husband and I both had the Veal Chop special and it was amazing! Our daughter is a picky eater and a vegetarian and had a wonderful meal as well. We'll be back!12/14/2012 12:00:00 AMFabulous French Dining!!I absolutely love the decor of this restaurant, a very clean, white linen french country flair with fabulous artwork. The food is excellent and there are many selections from small plates, soups and pizzas to steak, poultry and seafood. I recommend the Gnocchi with cremini mushrooms from the small pate sections and of course the white truffle parmesan fries. The lasagna is one of the bests I've ever had, but I only recommend it if you want a hearty dinner. For a more light faire, try whatever their fish special is. It's always cooked to perfection. I've also had excellent service everytime I've been. Their wine list is an excellent combination of French, Sanoma and Napa selections.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
