    We live in Roswell and have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. We went for the Tuesday night special, $10 burgers and beer. The servers were fantastic, attentive, and the burgers were outstanding. We shared beignets for dessert and really enjoyed every minute and every bite of food.

    I took a friend to lunch recently for her birthday and could not have been a happier camper. From the moment I stepped into the restaurant I loved it. Purely happentance that the weekend before another friend's daughter held her wedding here and I could see why. The rooms are almost ethereal, the food was wonderful and our waiter was devoted to us! All in all a very pleasant experience and I would definitely go back.

    Food is good, not great. Ambience and service are excellent. Nice relaxing meal and reasonably priced for where it is. Appetizers (tuna tartare, pizza, and ravioli) were excellent, but main courses (salmon, pork chop) were nicy prepared, but just mediocre.

    Been here a few times and really enjoyed it. It's a beautiful restaurant but something has changed. Our service was very poor. 8:00 reservation on Saturday night and only half full, so I must not be the only one. Hope they straighten it out!

    I have been a long time VG diner (18 years I believe.) I had lunch there this week, our food was not good. I ordered the trout which said it came with a parsnip puree, it was mashed potatoes...over mashed at that! I questioned it with our waiter, who wandered off only to wander back and say the chef was on the phone. I sent him back, he took his sweet time. Returned to tell me that it was parsnip and I obviously don't know what parsnips are! The restaurant was almost empty, our food was poorly cooked and service was very slow and sloppy. There are too many new restaurants opening in the Alpharetta, Roswell area for me to consider returning here for lunch.

    From the moment we were seated near the bar, a cold glass of water was poured for us and the bottle was left at the table. The server was very helpful in choosing a cocktail and the hostess sat the four of us at a beautiful table even though the other couple was late in arriving. The atmosphere is lovely, the food was served hot and was delicious, and the service was perfectly timed. Such an enjoyable place to spend an evening!

    This hidden gem provided the perfect setting for a wonderful evening. This high-end bistro is in an unassuming location, but don't be fooled. The food (with a French flair) is delicious. My husband had scallops which were outstanding. I had the halibut special which melted in my mouth. The desserts are absolutely sinful- just think banana chocolate bread pudding. Our server, Kaitlyn, was friendly, attentive, and helpful in making suggestions. We would definitely recommend this restaurant and will definitely return.

    This get together at Bistro VG was to celebrate a friend's birthday. Gary greeted us warmly and, as always, is the perfect host. Our waitperson, Becka, was both friendly and professional and took excellent care of us. All of that along with the delicious food and being in the 40's room made for a perfect afternoon.

  • Every Course A Delight

    One of the few restaurants where every course is a true delight. Also has an upscale eclectic setting that we love. You absolutely MUST try the tuna tartar appetizer and the brown butter & fruit tart for desert. Scallops or braised short ribs are our main course favorites. We've had the same waiter, Terry, a number of times and he always takes great care of us.

    Been going to Bistro VG since it was VanGogh and it has always been a place to go for special occasions. Service is always excellent and the food is fantastic. It has been a little while since we last dined at Bistro VG and we noticed a very new and fresh menu which would be great for late night dining or special occasions. My wife and I would love to go back just for cocktails and appetizers. The menu provides lots of great options for special occasions or just a late night evening.

    This restaurant bills itself as "French, tapas." That's odd. But the menu IS varied, the wine list a cut above, and the prices reasonable. My biggest complaint is the server who continued throughout the meal to inquire about our experience, intruding in our conversation to be reassured. Such neediness says something about the individual and the restaurant itself. Believe me, everything is better than OK.

    Have lived in Milton nearly 10 years...this used to be our hands-down favorite and we must have been 3 dozen times or more. But no innovation or creativity over this time means were choosing from the same tired dishes and frankly the quality seems to waiver these days as does even the presentation. No interesting specials and clearly no menu changes...except our favorite wines - now THOSE they do switch out so that we can never count on finding them. The desserts are still great, however! Downtown Roswell for us from now on....which is the epitome of innovation. VG we are sad to see you fall so far...wouldn't have been our choice. Please let the neighborhood know if you get a breath of life!

    I took my boyfriend to Bistro VG for his 60th birthday this week and we had a very good experience. Our waiter, Dan, was very cordial and had a great sense of humor. We could tell that he took his job seriously and checked in on us but did not hover. I started out with a very nice glass of bubbly that was excellent while my BF got a cocktail. We ordered the crab cakes (amazing) and a pizza with prosciutto along with a beet salad for me (excellent!) and a butter lettuce salad for my BF. We ordered Tiramisu for dessert and Dan brought it out with a side of Crème Brule and a candle! All in all, it was a very nice evening with great service and food!

    The sublime lady accompanying me and myself had the specials of the day (it was a Friday, for lunch): white bean soup and flounder, both well combined dishes with rich and tasty flavors. Otherwise, the dessert - chocolate crepes - was good, not exceptional, but good. I'd like to add that the menu looked interesting, though I would have expected more traditional french/mediterranean choices. I was not too impressed by the decor and personnally prefer smaller sized restaurants...consistent with short menues....
