love this place - at first glance thought it was a little pricey but ordered the cold poached salmon - incredible plate with a wonderful poached salmon, couscous, green salad, hard boiled egg nd refreshing cucumber salad. This immediately allayed my fears about price due to generous portions and exceptional quality!!!! Definitely will return - wonderful addition to Dallas restaurant scene

A FRENCH DINING EXPERICENCE
Our table was small, but cozy. The food was well prepared and we enjoyed every bite, as it reminded us of the many wonderful dining experiences during the years that we spent in France. We plan to return this week, and shall return until the food are no longer good. Dallas is lucky to have such a gem of a restaurant come here!

Very similar to NYC location
I've been to Le Bilboquet several times now. I was a frequent customer at the NYC location. Other than being larger and less of a late night scene, it is the same. The food is very good and the service is okay, not great. My only criticism is that while Laurent, the owner, is there all of the time, he seems completely indifferent to his customers or even a little bothered by having to deal with them. Too bad, as a a welcoming, gracious owner would be such a plus. Also, some of the servers are great, but others have little personality. Part of what made LB NYC special was the wait staff. For first time diners, I recommend the tuna tartare, endive roquefort, mussels, cajun chicken, and creme brulee. I would avoid salmon tartare.

svc did not match the atmosphere
Veyt nice surroundings...hip place...buy the servers were not the calaber of the menu and atmoosphere.

The Cajun Chicken is drool-worthy; I've been thinking about it for a week. The Tuna Tartar was also amazing.
Good service, but a little loud inside. Food is pricey but not outlandish. With drinks, however, the bill can get out-of-hand pretty quickly. Maybe I'm just a big drinker...

Great staff! Owner was rude!
Our dining experience was pleasant but the food was nothing to write home about! We've dined at other places near by that are better priced and better food. Our waiter was excellent and attentive! The owner was a bit stuffy and rude! When a man sitting at a table beside us asked for a glass of tea, the owner replied," I'm in the business of making money, not tea and we don't serve it!" Really..... we are in the south and iced tea is a staple! Probably won't return!

Just as wonderful as the original!!
As a frequent patron of Le Bilboquet in New York while I lived there for several years, I am thrilled to see that it transitioned to Dallas just as I remember and loved. The food is still amazing and the wine list is superb! The staff was very attentive and were very charming and personable. The decor is a wonderful ode to the simple style of their NY location. Thank you Laurent for bringing and carrying on a great tradition in Dallas, and thank you Chef Momo for continuing to wow with your delicious food. I have yet to have anything but a wonderful night here since you opened ~ keep it up!

Great fresh and clean decor
Great fresh and clean decor (plus expensive art). Attentive and pleasant staff. The seared tuna was not to my taste. Wrapped in seaweed and then cooked it had an unpleasant flavor (and I like Japanese hand rolls and cut rolls where the seaweed is not cooked). It also came with a sauce too sweet for me. The lobster salad main course was excellent. Love the dark chocolate mousse.
On prior visits I have enjoyed everything I ordered.

Le Bilboquet has good food
Le Bilboquet has good food and a nice staff that makes your dining experience memorable. The ambience is also quite nice and it is a great people watching place.

Wonderful ambiance and decor! Fantastic good! Not too loud and just the right size!! Welcome nyc to edge of hp!

Very Good Experience
Two of us went to lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. Appetizers are rather large, and priced to match. We got pretty full on them and couldn't take on eating an entree each, so we split the hanger steak. It was superb. If we'd eaten it alone, the food would be rated above as outstanding. I gave it a "very good" because of the appetizers. They (crab and avocado, and salmon) were presented nicely, but rather ho-hum. The only downside of the restaurant is the size of the tables for two. They are so small that you can't have all that you need on the table at once. I understand that the tables must be small, but they need to find a way to put everything the diner needs on there and keep water glasses full so that the extra bottle isn't needed.

First Rate all Around
Great place in all respects. Delicious and fun. They just need to add croissants at brunch!
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fresh flavorful and the best cold poached salmon outside to France this kitchen makes wonderful dishes. The restaurant is small and intimate and a bright cheery space. Service was attentive without being annoying . What a gem
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
It seemed they had maintained some of the menu items from when that location was L'Ancestral--and that is a good thing. The menu has something for everyone, food was well prepared and flavorful, staff was cheerful and attentive. Next time I will leave some dinner on my plate and try the dessert!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a lovely evening at Le Bilboquet. We had read mixed reviews, which management must also have read. Each negative comment appeared to have been specifically addressed. We found the food delicious and the service excellent. Our server was very helpful and gave us the perfect amount of attention. The interior of the restaurant has a light airy feel, and those who think the tables are too close together have never been to a cafe in France! We are anxious for the weather to cool and the outdoor covered area to be complete so we can return and dine al fresco.

Wonderful French Food
We wandered to Le Bibloquet on Labor Day (first time) and had a delightful meal. The restaurant filled up as the evening went on, from casual golf shirts, jeans and even shorts, to blazers and slacks, and a suit without a tie. The food was excellent (although they were out of two main dishes because of the Holiday weekend) and the portions are very nice; service was lacking a tad (our water bottle on our table was never re-filled). But the waiters were very attentive; they might mention portion size even for desserts; we could have split ours. My wife loved the foi gras and the chicken, along with chocolate mousse. It is a great additional to the Dallas dining scene; we will return.

This Bistro is a spinoff from
This Bistro is a spinoff from a well established restaurant in NY, and more importantly, the chef from the well established NY restaurant is now here. It is a French restaurant that replaces an old established French restaurant L'Ancestral which was one of my favorite neighborhood restaurants. As such, it has a great menu for French cuisine. It is not L'Ancestral, however. So my take may be biased as that restaurant was one of my neighborhood favorites. On the other hand, the latter was really stodgy and dark where as the new restaurant is more upscale, light, and chic. If you are looking for French cuisine, I would definitely try this restaurant out. It's way better than the other French restaurants in the area.
9/3/2013 5:00:00 PM
Food was good, service OK. A nice looking , bright and cherry place.
Will go back and would tell others to try it.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Friendly, fun and great food
The food was excellent and the staff went out of their way to offer us great service and make us feel appreciated as patrons.
The Fois gras is more like a country pate and it is excellent. The caesar salad is simple but the outstanding croutons make the salad.
Lamb, steak, scallops were all good.
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding Food and Service
Try the scallops or veal for your entree and the mushroom risotto for an appetizer. Service was excellent and the restaurant is very open and refreshing!
9/10/2013 5:00:00 PM
Excellent evening - food is fantastic - portions are a bit big but all excellent. Wine list is a little tough - opt for a bottle over the glass selections. They are beyond over priced and not very good... But wonderful restaurant!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Le Bilboquet is the best new French restaurant in Dallas! It has fantastic food, outstanding service and ambience, and a gracious host / owner.
The Steak Tartar was one of the best that I have ever had. The Filet Mignon is also lovely. Make reservations, as it is tough to get in during peak hours, but it is worth the extra effort.
I highley recoent this restaurant.

ANOTHER GOOD DINING EXPERIENCE
We had a great dining experience because of the good food and great service. This happens because of the people who run and own the restaurant. They are personable, but also want to please the customer in every way.

Paris in the Park Cities
We needed a restaurant like Le Bilboquet in the Park Cities. The great food and lovely ambience remind me of France. The gracious owners, managers and wait staff make the experience an overall win. The outdoor patio is lovely. I highly recommend the steak tartar, as well as the steak frites and the scallops. The profiteroles are an amazing desert. I can't wait to go back.

Lovely all around
Great food and attentive service in a lovely setting. What more can one ask?
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
good French restaurant
The place was packed, tables are close together, and the noise level very high. Some people like the vibes, some will not. This time of year, I would recommend eating outside (they have allotted a significant amount of space for outside) which cuts the noise level down considerably. Appetizers were excellent. I would be tempted to just go with a selection of those. It's a French restaurant...I would order French cuisine. I would go there again. Service was excellent. Both the waiters and the owner were very attentive.
10/20/2013 5:00:00 PM
A charming Paris bistro
Food, service and atmosphere was the best. Can't wait to return for dinner. All of us were so pleased and will definitely spread the word.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food good. Beautiful restaurant.
Food good. Beautiful restaurant. Service very dicey
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sat outside for lunch on the beautiful patio. Excellent service and very good food.
Cajun chicken was tender and juicy in a wonderful rich sauce.
Crab appetizer was ok- a bit too much mayo for my taste and needed more seasoning.
Divine chocolate mousse.

Laurent is a fantastic host
The French food is fantastic at Le Bilboquet. Laurent, one of the Owners, is a fantastic host and makes everyone feel special. The gracious service and perfectly prepared fare make Le Bilboquet one of the best French restaurants in Texas. I highly recomend this restaurant.
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
The management and staff at Le Bilboquet are fantastic. The French food is expertly prepared and graciously served. The location near Highland Park is upscale and elegant without being pretentious. Their steak frites is fantastic. The owner/partner, Laurent, makes my friends and family feel welcome. I highly recommend Le Bilboquet in Dallas.

Excellent lentil salad
I've had it 3 times and it has been great each time. Anyone who writes otherwise is clueless.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything about our evening was great. There were four of us and we all chose something different with a perfect result for everyone. We shared a few appetizers too and nothing to complain about there either. The wine list, for me, was the one thing that underwhelmed. I found it to be too top price heavy. Having said that, the waiter recommended the most expensive bottle and we thought it was a perfectly decent wine.

Dallas' Best French Food!!!
Simply the best French food in Dallas. Happy to know the owner is present and wants to make sure your experince was enjoyable. The best Branzino ever!

Very special place, friendly staff, great food, superb service. The new place for "Parkies" to dine.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Different vibe than NYC but definitely wonderful. The wait staff was so friendly and happy. The tartares are all wonderful. I can't wait to go back!
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great bistro fare
I would say that it is the best French restaurant in Dallas, but that is faint praise indeed for such a wonderful restaurant . It offers authentic, beautifully-prepared food with impeccable service. The waiters are helpful and attentive without a hint of condescension or stuffiness. Good but expensive wines. The only drawback to me is that the tables are very close together, making the restaurant loud, although some people seem to like that.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good Food with Good Friends
Great place to go with good friends for a good meal.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Attention To Detail
There's true team work at play to ensure that your evening is exceptional and exceeds your expectation. As a hospitality professional I was truly impressed at the attention to detail within the culture of their team. The room is filled with true society Dallas/Highland Park so do not go too casually dressed, ambiance has the feeling of Cafe Pacific. I'm one to often avoid chicken at restaurants but after seeing the presentation I ordered chicken and hear me loud and clear, "The Cajun Chicken is SUPERB!"
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Outstanding Food and Service
The salmon and veal dishes were excellent, but the service from our waitress, Paige, was outstanding!!
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Friendly, lively bistro. Fantastic food- endive salad, lamb stew, ribeye were all tops.
Neighborhood gem you'll want to return to often!
Just what Dallas needs!
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
We have been to many resturaunts around the world , and this one rates right up there among the finest. Our experience amazed us all the way around. We ordered 4 courses plus wine and champaign . We shall return...and soon!
