Le Bienville reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Not Bistro Bienville cooking
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 7/27/2013
    Bistro Bienville was our favourite place to eat in Montreal. A little out of the way but the cooking was outstanding. Now it has new owners, new chef and a new name. The old chefs would make complex dishes with outstanding flavours that we couldn't duplicate at home. Now, the cooking is good but much the same as many other restaurants in Montreal, so not worth going out of the way for.

    WOW! this restaurant is a 15 minute walk from my house and I had no idea how great it was. The one thing I would note was that the menu was quite different from what they have on line - maybe because it was Sunday, or because of the heat wave? It was a small plates menu, and my cousin and I split 4 of them, and every one was delicious. Really creative, and combined with charming and first rate service. It was VERY hot - their little air conditioner couldn't keep up with the heat, but they have big ceiling fans and that helped a lot. I am 100% definitely going back!!

    Restaurant très intime. Nous avons mangé au bar. Ce qui nous permet de "z'yeuter" les chefs en pleine action et de jaser avec eux. Cuisine rafinée et agréable autant pour les yeux que pour les papilles. Le foie gras à l'érable sur tarte tatin est tout simplement MALADE!

    Dined on 3/29/2013
    Le Bistro Bienville était l'un de nos restaurant favori avant le changement de garde. Nous avions hâte d'y retourner pour voir si la magie opérait toujours. Quelle déception...En entrée, le ris de veau était presque cru et les cuisses de grenouilles semblaient sorties du sac de congélation et passées quelques secondes au micro-onde. La bavette de boeuf était tiède et les grosses frittes qui l'accompaqgnait inintéressantes. Par contre, le lapin était excellent. Une mention honorable pour le service.

    Our experience was great. We were celebrating a special occasion and the staff was wonderfull and went to great lengths to make it so.The food was inventive fresh and absolutely delicious. Its a small restaurant but that adds to its charm, the chef is working away in plain view and the staff were warm approachable and very attentive. Price was pretty reasonable i would definetly go back and have already recomended it to friends.

    The service was very good. My main course could have been a little bigger and it was more warm than hot, but still very good. The «pousse l'ananas» is awsome, a must. My coffee (an «allongé») tasted like water.

    Le Bienville was amongst my favourite restaurant in Montreal. Unfortunately, the food is not what it was used to be (and by far). It is good but not exquisitely executed like before. Maybe I wouldn't have been so disappointed if I did not know le Bienville.

    Pour passer une belle soirée entre amis, ce resto est un bon endroit. Par contre, son format très réduit amène la convivialité mais aussi une trop grande promiscuité avec les autres convives et même la cuisine. La nourriture était très bonne et bien préparée, avec une touche osée, sans aller dans une trop grande expérimentation.

    Prime steak was very tasty and one of the best I've had in a long time. The waiter was good, he explained the menu in detail and was there when needed. We got to talk to the chef after our meal and he was also very friendly!

    We've eaten at the old Bistro Bineville and always enjoyed. This new incarnation is even better. The flavours were exquisite, presentation was delectable and the service impeccable. If you are just 1 or 2 people and interested in cooking, try to sit at the "bar", watch the cooking action and interact with the chefs.

    I recently went to Le Bienville with friends and we had a lovely meal. It is a small neighbourhood restaurant on a residential street in the plateau. There is a nice open kitchen and the food was excellent. I highly recommend it !

    Bouffe plus qu'excellente, nous étions assis au bar où nous parlions au très sympatique chef alors qu'il nous préparait nos repas. Le service était impeccable, tout ça dans un endroit petit, ce qui ajoute de l'intimité et nous fais sentir comme si nous étions reçus chez le chef, à la maison. Un beau secret du plateau.

    We were thrilled to be back at Le Bienville with its new chef. Food was amazing. Service was outstanding - we were with my sister from Toronto and our wonderful server was most accommodating by translating the menu into English for her. I was very impressed with the wine list - it was not extensive but great selections and very fairly priced (I think there was only 1 wine over $60). We will definitely be back, and definitely recommend it to others. Thanks to everyone.

    A cozy corner off the beaten track with a great chef. The food was innovative and market fresh. A great choice of appetizers and mains with a twist. Chef Olivier formerly of Quartier General, is at the helm and showing his talent with a wonderful flare. I hightly recommend this place.

    Amazing restaurant. The menu is short and sweet and the food is to die for. I eat out quite a lot and know most of the famous restaurants in Montreal and this one is at the top of my list. The food is elegant/creative but never over the top or pretentious, the prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is very welcoming. Going to this restaurant was for me a fantastic discovery!

    Wonderful evening. Very personable, informative and welcoming service from the proud staff. Small, cozy and warm with an inventive and tasty menu that changes daily. Chef utilizes local ingredients (e.g., a Quebec venison that was exquisitely prepared). Would definitely recommend and return.
