    We have had brunch and lunch at Passerelle, but first time for dinner. Food was very good. Service was disappointing. It took 20 minutes or more from the time we sat down until the wine we ordered was brought to the table. It took a visit to the front desk to make this happen. Seemed to be a different staff on Sunday evening. More attention given to outside diners than inside.

    The menu "reads" very well with descriptions that get your juices flowing... Then comes the disconnect.. For an appetizer I couldn't resist the Smoked Salmon croquettes wit horseradish dipping sauce: who could I mean not only tasty Salmon, but SMOKED as well.. The croquettes were well over cooked composed of tasteless mashed potatoes.. Not even a hint of salmon flavor let along one of smoked salmon. The "horseradish" dipping sauce was equally lacking any resemblance to its description.. Wife had the trout and I the lamb. Hers was mediocre at best, my lamb had a lamb flavor accompanied by a mixture of well undercooked potatoes and tasteless veggies. The slight addition of salt awoke my dormant taste buds. No retune trip in the near future

    Passarelle is a French cuisine restaurant. After residing in France for 6 years, I was excited to relive my French dining experiences. To open, I had the Spring asparagus salad . It was fresh, chilled & delicious. My main dish was the Herb Salmon, which was top notch. The salmon was fresh, with only a light aroma & the herb crème fraiche added just the authentic French touch I remember. Badoit was available & I ordered a bottle. The only disappointment was that I expected to have a basket of sliced baguettes & a carafe d'eau on the table soon after being seated. We had to request both & I think we had to pay extra for the bread. Finally, some dessert staples were missing- mousse au chocolat & crème brulé. Overall, a very enjoyable dinner.

    If you are not from Greenville, this could be a little hard to find. They have a small foldable sign on the sidewalk by Main, which is how we found it. You literally go down the stairs like you are going across Liberty bridge and there it is on the left. Atmosphere was great. We ate outside. Service a little slow, but we were in no hurry, so it was NOT a distraction. Food was very good. We would go back.

    Saw this restaurant written up in American Airline's first class magazine but was very disappointed with the food - not much there. Beautiful location for an outside beverage with a great view of Reedy Park and the footbridge, but the food is no reason to go.

    We ate inside...It was evening, and we reserved a table, but there were plenty of free ones inside (just not on the patio). Outside tables, which were full, overlook beautiful Falls Park. Try the goat cheese appetizer...it is delicious! I had the Moroccan stew, which was tasty and full of quinoa. The service was friendly. I hear brunch is excellent here so I will be returning for that.

  • A True Bistro Experience

    The dining experience was very good. The ambiance is very much bistro in style and true to its name. We were greeted with friendly faces. We were offered the choice of dinning on the patio overlooking the scenic falls and nearby area or inside with a view of the open kitchen. We chose inside and did not regret it. The server arrived shortly after being sat and introduced himself and asked if we wanted a beverage to start. He was very friendly and accommodating. After getting our beverages, he asked if we had any questions about the menu. They were offering a three course meal for $30, part of Restaurant Week in Greenville, which we ordered. The food was cooked to perfection and the service excellent. A true bistro experience.

    Passerelle is a wonderful small French style restaurant. The service was good and it has a great location in Greenville. The food was good and bad. My wife's trout was very over cooked and my halibut was as well. The appetizer/salad we had was excellent as well as the vegtables. I will go again due to the location, but will never order fish, of any type there again.

    We dined Al Fresco and had a table with a great view of Reedy Falls. Server was helpful and attentive. Food was great. Must have been a mix up in the kitchen because server came out with wrong entrees. Once we corrected we waited quite a long time for our ordered entrees to appear. In fact other diners came and went while we were waiting. A complimentary glass of wine may have helped the wait but we weren't offered anything. Other than that, a great evening.

    Great spot for Sunday brunch, but go early and request an outside table. Inside is a bit dark and noisy. The Coastal Benedict is delicious! As is the Tartine and Goat Cheese and Artichoke Omelette, which my husband and granddaughter had. Lots of water going over the falls made for a spectacular backdrop for our 5-star meal. We'll definitely go again.

    We really miss Deveriux's, but the outdoor bistro and food at Passerelle are quickly making it a fond memory. The menu is delicious and changing often, the daily Chef's menu has been a pick each visit. The view is nice although sometimes crowded. It reminds me of Europe. Highly recommend you try but don't tell everyone or I will never be able to get a table!

    My first experience here was dinner and the service was horrible, mostly because of being constantly interrupted by the waitress. The food wasn't anything special that night either, especially for the prices. But this time I went for lunch and the experience was much better. I was treating my sister and friend to a birthday lunch, so we lingered and was pleasantly surprised that we weren't pushed to leave. I think lunch is a better time to go but will give dinner another try now.

    Passarelle Bistro is located right next to Liberty Bridge at Falls Park on the Reedy, so already it started great by being situated at one of Greenville's most beautiful and fun places! The food and the service were excellent and so was the atmosphere. The French music in the background was an added plus! Truly enjoyed a small taste of Paris in Greenville, South Carolina!

    We have just moved to Greenville and have been trying all the restaurants within walking distance of our condo. So far Passerelle is definitely the best by a large margin. The service is friendly but not overbearing. The view definitely can't be beat. The food is gorgeous and very well presented. We have not earn inside the restaurant so cannot comment on that but the outside patio is lovely.

    Very noisy with lots of outside noise. Our server was awful. She called me sweetie three times. She was slow to take our order, had to be prompted to let us know about specials, and would disappear for long, long intervals. When my wife asked for bottled water and we both responded, she brought one small bottle and said they were out of large ones and "oh, did we want two". Before we were done eating she asked if we wanted dessert. After we ate, when we did ask for the dessert menu, she brought one. The food was only okay - not worth the cost at all. We will not be returning here and could never recommend it to anyone else.

    Passerelle has an interesting menu, an okay interior and stunning views from the terrace. I'd say the terrace is where all the ambience is. Having just returned from France, my husband and I were delighted to extend the experience by having lunch at Passerelle on a recent day trip to Greenville. He ordered the Croque Madame, which he had first had in France; I had a roast pork sandwich. The pork was a bit dry, but the bread and slaw were tasty. It came accompanied by a small salad of fresh greens and a light vinaigrette. The Croque Madame suited my husband just fine. The day was dripping rain, so we opted to eat indoors. Next time I hope we can dine al fresco, to enjoy the breathtaking view of the Reedy River.
