Located in the heart of Hillcrest, Au Revoir Bistro saw it's first day in November 2010, a new born of the Mastellone family (Arrivederci, Il Postino, Buon Appetito, etc etc). Typical Parisian French Bistro, Au Revoir, has a casual ambiance and an atmosphere that transports you directly to the top of the Eiffel Tower. Our French Homemade Cuisine is a perfectly inexpensive recipe, a little bit of tradition, an ounce of modern French cooking inspired by different regions, and a big cup of love from our Chef Dédé and his team. Some of the house specialties are "escargots", "soupe à l'oignon", "boeuf bourguignon", "coq au vin", "frogs' legs", ...Et Voila !

I've been eating at Au Revoir since 2012. Reasonable prices and excellent food over the years have always brought me back. I had a duck breast in cherry sauce and my guest enjoyed his salmon, which I suspect may have been cooked sous vide. The wait staff were particularly helpful, especially when I realized that one of the two women sitting at the next table was not only inebriated but going off about her grown children who had come back to live with her (to whom she obviously did not wish to "au revoir"). but as she got louder and more profane, her favorite adjective being a gerund starting with "f," I got up and explained to our server that I didn't want to be next to this ongoing and deafeningly nasty rant; we were instantly moved and the rest of the meal proceeded well. One of the waiters even appeared pleased with my attempts to communicate in French. This is a very nice, unpretentious bistro which, once experienced, begs to be revisited again and again.

Best part of the meals were the fries - crispy and hot.. The calamari appetizer was not hot and did not taste fresh. The mussel main course did not taste fresh. The fish of the day was OK but the accompanying vegetable was barely warm.

In the midst of the restaurant week hubbub, Au Revoir was like an old friend: trustworthy, stable, and knowing what we liked. We had forgotten how nice it is to have a little neighborhood restaurant that delivers quality food and service consistently and without fanfare. It was great to see the tables filled with families, singles, and couples on a Saturday night. Soft music, so you could converse quietly, not yell above the noise. Keep it going, Au Revoir!

Mussles were the most delicious I've had in a long time. Fries were good, but a little TOO "lavendery".

My husband made a reservation for Au Revoir for a special celebration, on Monday night. Upon arrival, we could see there were several tables open. We were approached by a young man (not smiling), and we let him know we had a reservation for two. He simply pointed to a table and said you may sit there. We asked if we might be able to sit somewhere else and were abruptly told NO that all the other tables were reserved. We sat down and ordered two kir royales which were marginal tasting at best (we were told they were made with champagne and raspberry flavored syrup--not a typical recipe for a kir royale). We were sipping our kir royales and within 5 minutes the same young man came back to take our order. We told him we were enjoying our drinks and hadn't even looked at the menu. He huffed and looked at his watch and then looked at us and rudely said OKAY. He was quite unfriendly and obviously annoyed by us. He was clearly the only person on staff, beside chefs (perhaps stressed). We finished our drinks and left a $20 on the table. We walked down the street to a nearby restaurant and enjoyed a pleasant dinner experience that we thoroughly enjoyed and service with many smiles. We will not be returning to Au Revoir!

One of our favorite neighborhood bistros. Au Revoir never disappoints. Entertained our nephew and his wife for brunch. Sad that they no longer serve Bloody Marys, but the table enjoyed the bottomless Mimosas. Crepes were delightful; service a delight. Always fun to eat here.

We love your restaurant! This is our 2nd time and we had a beautiful experience celebrating our daughter's 12th Birthday. Luciano, our server, was so sweet, kind, amazing to all our needs. Our daughter wanted to have her 1st tween luncheon on her birthday, New Year's Day. The escargot, French onion soup, calamari, Croq Madam, lavender fries, and all that we had was empecable & deliciously amazing. My father loved his food and asked to come back soon. Thank you for a beautiful luncheon.

We've been to Au Revoir many times, as it's in our neighborhood. We always receive good food at reasonable prices. Service is very spotty. So as we wanted to enjoy a semi-casual Christmas Eve dinner, Au Revoir looked good, especially since the website didn't indicate any special holiday menu. Well, unfortunately, all they had was a special holiday menu at $55 ea., and they were not willing to serve us only one entree at a reduced cost. Mine was good as always, but my husband wasn't very thrilled with his steak. All in all, a bit of a disappointment for a usually satisfying meal at Au Revoir. As we visit there often, and we were even recognized, you would expect a little more personal service....

This place has French classic dishes down almost perfect. For example the fritz are perfect - crispy and thin cut. The scallops were cooked to perfection. But the service is poor at best!

Very disappointed in the terrible service we encountered, waited one and a half hours for our dinner.
I expressed our disappointment with the main waiter and he just said they were busy, offered to give
us one free desert. They saw us sitting there waiting and no one came over to ask how we were doing,
I had to complain as he was oblivious to our waiting so long.

Food was under seasoned. The ambience was terrible. Had the smell of the bathroom in the dining room. They boxed our leftovers which had soaked through the box by the time I got it home and had to throw it away. I would not suggest this restaurant until they clean up the or act. They also did not have any Bloody Mary mix for the one of two drinks on the menu.
