A Classic and a Favorite
Bistro Garden has been one of my favorites for many years. It has a beautiful ambiance - like being in a garden with plants and twinkle lights. The bar has the world's best Greyhounds, made only with freshly squeezed grapefruit juice, and a great cocktail menu. The service is always excellent - you are never rushed, nor are you looking around wondering what happened to your waiter. Live music is provided by a great pianist who plays classics, standards and Broadway. Very pleasant, never intrusive.
Mauricio, the maitre d', is warm and welcoming.
We've always treated Bistro Garden like an "occasion" restaurant, but we've decided to visit more frequently. We'll just have a drink and appetizers and listen to the music.

Best occasion restaurant in
Best occasion restaurant in The Valley. Love the live piano music! Food is delicious and served beautifully. Decor makes you think that you are eating on a patio in Europe. Just lovely!

Mother's Day Brunch
My parents and I went here for Mother's Day brunch on Sunday. We were very impressed by the whole experience. There have been many times when we've gone out for a holiday and the service or food have been mediocre. That was not the case here. Our waiter was friendly and accommodating. We were not rushed through our meal. The food was fantastic and reasonable priced, as well. The three of us agreed that we'd come back here again and are curious to try their dinner as well.

It's always wonderful
This restaurant is consistently wonderful. It is a romantic spot and my husband and I always celebrate our anniversary there. The atmosphere is beautiful and the service is always impecable. We really enjoy the whitefish and especially love the chocolate souffle for dessert!

A strong choice for septugenarians
In our mid-40s, we were the youngest people in the dining room by several decades. If you're OK with that, then the staff were friendly, the food was generally pleasant and the dining space was lovely.

Most Beautiful Restaurant in LA
There is not a more beautiful restaurant in the San Fernando Valley than the Bistro Garden. It is one of the few remaining restaurants in Los Angeles that retains a classic ambience, and is quiet and serene.Even when the restaurant is full, you can actually hear the person opposite you without yelling. Many of the younger set are returning to dine, because they remember coming with their parents when they were children, and want their children to experience fine dining. The service is outstanding , but not stuffy as in many white table restaurants. It's a great place to go for a special occasion or just for a wonderful lunch. They have a great bar also.

Perfect for our Special Occasion!
Our family needed the perfect spot for a classy, multi-generational special occasion, and the Bistro Garden at Coldwater was the PERFECT choice for our family to celebrate with a wonderful Sunday brunch/lunch. The service was fabulous, and the room could not have been more beautiful, allowing Mother Nature's sunshine to come in through the skylight. Thank you!
6/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went back to The Bistro Garden to celebrate our anniversary. We had a delicious meal in a beautiful setting with excellent service. The chocolate soufflé is always incredible. It is definitely out of our price range for a regular dinner out, but it is wonderful for a special occasion.

Bistro Garden never fails to provide 5 Star service and quality.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
If you want an elegant dining experience Bistro Gardens is the best. The main dining area is open and spacious. Fresh flowers grace linen-covered tables that are well spaced for comfort and privacy. The service is friendly and impeccable. You want to linger and savor the calm and elegant ambiance as you dine on beautiful china and sparkling stemware. Perfect for a special occasion or quiet meal with a great friend. The food is well prepared and presented. My only criticism is I wish for a more creative and inspired menu ...but that's just me. I've enjoyed Bistro Gardens at lunch with a friend, brunch on Morher's Day, special family birthday dinners, and a private party in their gorgeous party room. I've never been disappointed.

We decided to try a new restaurant
We decided to try a new restaurant for my daughter's 17th birthday. We walked in and were so impressed with the beautiful setting! It reminded me a a lovely wedding shower or reception. The service was very good, However, the food was just OK. The chilian seabass had a sweet sauce on it, but was covered in a sundried tomato and artichoke sauce on top of that. The flavors didn't work well together. My daughter had the ravioli that were good, but very plain. This is the first time I have ever had to add salt to my food at a restaurant. Overall, I was happy and plan to return.

Very pretty restaurant
The menu felt a bit limited to me, but on the plus side it's very pretty inside. The staff were top notch!

Great restaurant which has a very special feel from the valet parking through to the Winter Garden type dining room. Food was good and the service excellent. A great place for a special dinner.

OMG memories of life being great
What a wonderful place. OMG the same for many many years. This place is "old" memorial fine dining. The food is amazing. Service wonderful...the piano music in the background gave an additional ambience.. No matter what chocolate soufflé is a must.. OMG....
9/20/2013 5:00:00 PM
Decent menu, although somewhat limited for lunch. My husband had the eggs benedict. It was so-so and that's because the hollandaise wasn't very good. I had a cobb salad and it was tasty. Not the typical cobb salad...chopped very fine, but had all the ingredients and I wasn't disappointed. Free Mimosa too, which I thought was a classy touch. Ambience was very nice, and the staff is very attentive. What I didn't like was the loud pianist. It should be background during brunch, not the center of everyone's attention. All in all... a nice brunch and I would go again.

Best in the Valley
Fabul experience every time I come here. Franchesco (bartender) makes the best lemon drops in the valley! The food is prepared to perfection and the service is very professional. This is by far one of my very favorite restaurants in the valley.

Beautiful "old style" elegance!
Nice menu and pretty ambiance, traditional continental style cuisine, elegant! Worth a trip to the valley. The chocolate souffle was divine.

Dining at the Bistro
The service was outstanding and the food excellent - but definitely an older crowd (maybe because of the prices).

I am amazed everytime I go here. It is an elegant restaurant that I know I will get excellent food and service. The ambience is lovely---like being in a garden.
It is the best choice if you want to impress or simply entertain someone for a special occasion.

You can hear yourself talk
Great place for a business lunch. You and your guests can have a conversation!
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
A beautiful ambiance with classic items on the menu. French onion soup, martinis, wine, soufflé, etc. We love fish and had a delicious salad and sand dabs entree. Requested to cook without butter, and the chef accommodated. Berries for dessert were plump and fresh. Not difficult to eat healthily here as well as trying the traditional classics! Hope to return soon.

We now go out to a restaurant for Thanksgiving dinner. Bistro Garden has become our yearly place to go. A fabulous traditional turkey dinner is always offered as well as a fish dinner and a steak dinner for those who aren't turkey fans. Delicious appetizers, breads, and their well known chocolate mousse dessert round out the meal. Service is always great - you won't feel rushed.
