    Consistently excellent food and service. We enjoy dining here. This time we ordered the chicken pillaird and lobster roll. There was an item requested that was not available, cranberry juice, and shortly after request another staff member had gone to purchase and was soon served at our table. Service such a this is almost nonexistent yet at Le Bilboquet is natural.

    I was looking forward to having lunch at this restaurant because of the patio areas, especially on a nice day. But the service was soooo horrible that it ruined our whole experience. I wish I could say that the reason was the restaurant was full, and busy, but quite the opposite. My salad entree was okay. My guest's hamburger was ordered "medium", but came out raw and barely held it's shape! It took 10 minutes to get someone's attention to have it taken back. By the time the hamburger was made again, she had lost her appetite. My coffee was never replenished, but we were thankful that they leave a carafe of water at each table, so we could refill our glasses ourselves. I will not be returning to this restaurant...and do not recommend it!

    Wonderful food and wonderful ambiance. My husband enjoyed the Cajun chicken and my Veal was fabulous. The service was attentive. We will definitely be going back and I have recommended the restaurant already to several friends. Two tiny complaints--the chairs at the tables are uncomfortable--they do not have any arms so there is no where to put your arms except to lean them on the table; also they are small even for me 5'4". And also minor, we only asked for one condiment to be brought to us, which we never got from our otherwise attentive waiter.

    A wonderful, intimate restaurant with great service and food. We arrived at 6:30 and would have preferred patio seating (all tables were empty) but were told that those tables were taken. Nevertheless, the meal was delightful. Crab and avocado salad was excellent along with veal scallopini. Highly recommend.

    Consistenly great food, with some American and French touches. People come back again and again for the Cajun Chicken, but there are several wonderful choices with some seasonal variation. It has a cozy feel with soft contemporary interior and great people watching for sophisticated arty types, business people, and hip upper crust of the neighborhood. Great wall of windows that open in beautiful weather, some outdoor seating and enclosed patio seating. Owner/manager and staff genuinely nice but professional,making you feel relaxed and taken care of. This is our go to place for a nice, relaxing respite.

    An institution in New York, Le Bilboquet has done a fabulous job with its restaurant in Dallas. A lot of staples on the menu, in addition to some great newer menu options. If you are looking for modern french bistro cuisine with good and vibrant ambience, Le Bilboquet should serve you well. The food is consistently well executed. I have had lobster risotto, crab and avocado salad, cajun chicken, and have yet to be disappointed. I like it for both lunch and dinner, and can be a romantic place for two. The service has also been great with friendly and accommodating staff, an improvement over NYC. Solid wine list as well.

    Poor food prep ...was the chef off duty sat night ? Delicious risotto 3 weeks ago and a salty pitiful rendition of it sat night . My steak tartare was overly mixed with capers and rather mushy. Both dishes unsatisfactory for any true French bistro .

Plus a new set of wines by the glass. A great treat, as always. steak tartare, snails in butter/garlic, crab/avocado salad, a double pork chop, duck - some new and tasty items. always excellent.

    I have said this before, this is my new go to favorite and I continue to enjoy my visits to Bilbouquet! The service is attentive while down to earth. The food is delicious and after 5 visits this summer, I have tried almost everything. This time we shared the halibut and hanger steak....both scrumptious! I have taken 4 different guests and all have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The management is also very supportive of the community and I appreciate their recognition that any business in Dallas is a partnership with clientele and the community!

    Not only were the surroundings lovely to look at but were also comfortable. While tables were cozy. We never felt intruded upon by others. Food was exceptional (I had the chef's special halibut - perfectly prepared). The apple tartine dessert was somewhat pedestrian but acceptable. Overall a wonderful dining experience.

    In general, I would characterize my experience with this restaurant as good, but not great. The food was of good quality and was prepared well. That being said, they could probably have used one additional dessert option given the choices they had - my suggestion would be a chocolate soufflé. I was pleased overall but not wow-ed. Just down the road is another French restaurant (Belgian-French to be exact), and between the two I would probably pick the other one over Le Bilboquet. There is also a good tapas restaurant across the street, for Spanish food. I had a good bottle of wine there one time.

    We went here for my birthday and it was so wonderful. We started out with fois gras with crositini that was excellent and the escargot in a lovely white wine sauce. I had the rack of lamb that was perfect and my husband had the red snapper with ratatouille that was amazing. We finished with the Ile flottante or floating island which is my husband's favorite and it was perfection! Stephan stopped by the table and was always checking with customers to make sure everything was up to par. At one point in the evening they opened the roof and let in the fresh air. Great experience and we will go back!

    I've been to lunch twice and dinner once. I found the food to be excellent and the Rosè by the glass was great! Their avocado/crabmeat appetizer can feed 4 people and is really outstanding! I had poached salmon for lunch and grilled salmon at dinner. Both were great, I liked the dinner salmon best. My husband wants to put this restaurant on our list (which is very short) so this says a lot! The entrees were plenty varied and the Frites were awesome! I love French food and it's hard to find in Dallas, but now we've found it! The service is very professional and friendly at the same time. The place has a small intimate feel even when it is packed on a Saturday night! I look forward to dinning on the patio in the fall when they open it.
