Service was outstanding.
Service was outstanding. Server used his knowledge of the menu preparations to guide my wife's selection. She ended up with her third choice and was very happy she did. When I ordered cassoulet the server explained how LM's preparation differs from the traditional preparation and it was excellent. Very reasonable prices. Highly recommended.

First time there and it was
First time there and it was wonderful. Friendly service upon entering, waiter was friendly also but I don't know if it was our waiter or a busy boy that got our order wrong. We were charged for an extra drink we didn't order, nor want. I guess just drinking water wasn't acceptable with him. The croque monsieur was amazing, however the LM omelet was not really that good. I would go back again and try something from their dinner or lunch menu.

I find that french restaurants
I find that french restaurants usually have limited menu choices. This was not the case at LM. There were many selections that all impressed. I am so glad Opentable had a reservation for me and I discovered this gem of a restaurant. I will spread the word.

My friends and I met for brunch at LM bistro. We had a great time catching up while have some yummo mimosas. The staff is super friendly and very accomidating. They were able to make my Croque Madame the way I requested without any hesitation. I would go back to LM for brunch over and over again.

Brunch at LM Bistro
My friend and I had a delightful brunch at LM Bistro last Sat. The decor is lovely and the food was delicious, although my one small-ish piece of toast was the only thing that was odd. We had a wonderful server with a sparkling personality, and she did not rush us through our meal, which was appreciated. I will definitely return to sample the food at lunch or dinner.

We came over from the Hotel Felix and had a lovely brunch -- an omelet and the granola with yogurt, both classics done well.

Great Mother's Day Brunch
Trout salad was excellent. Lamb portion was fulfilling. Lemon tart had a good balance of sweetness and bitterness.

Great place to take foodies.
Perfect for dinner with friends. Noise level low, comfortable atmosphere, service excellent but unassuming. Food was excellent. Only drawback was no wine in stock from their solid wine list.

Fabulous French Food
Everything here is delicious! my favorites include the sourdough bread, the salmon and the creme brulee. IMHO, I would say the best creme brulee I have ever had. definitely will be going back!

Put LM Bistro on your list
LM Bistro is a terrific combination of ambiance, food preparation and service. Any time of day, you'll find interesting and dependable menu choices, at a great location in the Felix Hotel. The quiche is the best in town. Put LM Bistro on your list.

Paris on Huron
From the Kir Royale to the creme brulee, LM Bistro delighted us. Marvelously rich, smooth, smoky tomato bisque. Bistro steak with potato mousse, more of a potato foam - so sheer, nearly invisible imparted such a buttery, potato flavor...have to have it again to make sure it was real. Boeuf bourguignon, forgive the cliche, so tender, it truly melted in the mouth. Attentive and courteous server. Helpful, too. Asked for a wine recommendation to accompany the bourguignon. Per the server's suggestion, a glass of red -the best wine we have ever had. And that's just after returning from France and a wine-tasting trip through Burgundy!
Only criticism was the noisy ventilation system's impact on a fully romantic dinner.

Great food and ambience
Newly revised menu was imaginative and tasty. Nice and quiet for conversing. Friendly and helpful staff.

I had the brunch for 25 bottomless mimosas plus anything from their brunch choices

A perfect meal!
Everything just aligned right to make our meal at LM a wonderful evening! The food of course was delicious, form my prix fixe meal with seared tuna and lamb, to the whitefish and Amish chicken that others had. The goat cheese dessert was fabulous! It was also a beautiful evening and sitting on there outside patio watching the Friday evening parade of people in River North was fun and we lingered for a long time enjoying our wine (they have a large and excellent selection), and the orhter wonderful thing was that it was very reasonably priced, especially for the high quality of the food. And of course the service was great to round out the lovely meal.

another perfect dinner!
I just love coming to LM Bistro and check out their ever-changing menu. My dinner with friends there a few days ago was another perfect experience. We all ordered different menu items and each one seemed more delicious then the next.. I chose the Prix Fixe 4 course, which was an excellent value at $39 and included a tasty escarole salad, a new autumn soup and the most flavorful and tender braised veal cheeks you can imagine. My mouth is watering as I am writing this.. Other dishes with rave reviews were the seared duck breast and the excellent whitefish.
Service and overall ambience were outstanding, especially the great live entertainment which was at a perfect level to allow for conversation at the table. I can't wait to go back soon!

We went with a Gilt City coupon for the 4 course tasting menu with wine pairings. The tasting menu was a full four course meal with large portions. Everything was delicious and it was great to try some things we would not have normally ordered. It is reasonably priced and the decor is great. The service was superb, the best we have had, not stuffy, just right. There was also live music - piano, cello, and singer, which really added to the experience. We hope to be back soon!

Comfort French Bistro and Brasserie
Just an all around great place to get some of the famous and delicious comfort foods that a good bistro and brasserie should have, from the croque monsieur, quiche, mussels and burgers that our group had at lunch this visit, to some really wonderful and creative fish, steak and lamb dishes that I have had at previous dinner visits. Reasonable prices and a really friendly and efficient staff helps as well! It is fun to eat outside on Michigan Ave. in good weather across from a lovely part of Grant Park. They always seem to have an interesting array of wines at reasonable prices to compliment the meal. Really good comfort food restaurant with a just enough creativity to keep it interesting!

Food, Service, Entertainment!
We loved LM Bistro! The manager and our servers were very attentive. Food was wonderful and the 3 Jazz Performers featured that night were outstanding. Plan to go again soon- most likely on a night when there is entertainment.

The food, service and decor
The food, service and decor were excellent. I was hoping to be hearing french or french inspired music to add to the ambiance, The music they played was not bad but it lost it's charm.

A breakfast oasis
This was my first visit and it was for breakfast. What a terrific alternative to the usual heavy breakfast fare at some many restaurants downtown. The French "twists" on classics like Eggs Benedict, for example, made a standard dish seem brand new, and incredibly flavorful and satisfying. And what a gem in the middle of an area in which it's difficult to find a good breakfast spot generally. Great service, too, and good coffee.

a welcome addition to River North
We went on a Tuesday when they offer no corkage fee, although i have also gone there at other times and selected wine from their list. the food was terrific with the wine we brought. it's always such a pleasure to be able to bring a wine from our personal cellar and have a fine meal with it. I plan to come back when they have live music on Friday and Saturday nights as well!

Great breakfast spot
It's a real treat to have an alternative to the usual heavy "American" breakfast downtown. Great service, too!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
had brunch with a friend on sunday afternoon. the baked egg cocotte was good but when i got to eating the middle of the middle of the dish, it was slightly cold. taste wouldve been great if it had been completely warm.
service was kind and attentive. place was very quiet but ironically social (great mix)!

Excellent breakfast spot
LM Bistro is a great little spot for breakfast that provides a great alternative to the typical heavy fare one finds around the Loop and River North areas. It's not a huge menu, but the food is delicious and most enjoyable.
