This is a delightful restaurant. It doesn't swagger, but it does embrace. The food is consistently good, as is the ambiance. The service could not be more professional or more friendly. PLUS it's dog friendly and charges a most modest $10/bottle corkage. I have no reason to feel as though I'm having lunch or dinner in France...but I do!

I was looking forward to this dinner which was a special treat for my granddaughter who spent a year studying in France. Bistro 112 gets good ratings on Yelp and it's kind of expensive, so I expected it to be excellent. The menu choices were slim and not very enticing. My granddaughter ordered the duck dinner, which was the only thing that looked interesting to her. She enjoyed it, although she felt the outside of the duck was too charred. I think the Duck dinner was ok for $32. However, I didn't care for my vegetarian dinner at all. I was very disappointed. The eggplant was one large piece of eggplant coated with bread crumbs and cheese, and heavy, not delicate or tasty. The ratatouille was not a real ratatouille, nothing like any ratatouille I've ever had. It was made up of very thin slices of zucchini in an overpowering tomato sauce that had no flavor. I feel that there's no excuse for any restaurant to service a dish that doesn't taste good. But especially a French restaurant that has a high rating. I've had better French food on Air France. The restaurant was nice and atmosphere was good. But without good food, I would never go back.

My wife and I had a great experience at Bistro 112. The food was amazing. I probably had the best French Onion Soup I ever had. The service was amazing. Michelle, our server, was so friendly, helpful and professional. The ambiance was great. The restaurant is small, but we felt like we were in France. The prices were a little high, but overall we really enjoyed our dinner and experience.

Although the food was good, the service was soooo slow! There was such an incredibly long lag time between finishing our salads and our entrees and between finishing our desserts and seeing a server to request the bill. The bottle with water was not refilled. Perhaps they need more servers and/or additional staff to bus the tables.

Service was great. Weather wasn’t optimal and the staff gave me updates on road conditions around the restaurant. It was very quiet due to people only at the bar area. Tables are super close to one another but it was empty during my visit. Waitress was great and said the menu items in an appropriate accent. Would recommend friends to visit.

On a cold winter's night we experience a warm and cozy dining atmosphere in Bistro 112. Michelle was very kind, cordial and happy to have us at her table. The salmon and pasta bolognese were fresh and warmly presented, as was the bread served upon arrival. We recommend the House French carafe: perfectly suited to both dishes. We will return for possibly appetizers at the colorful bar or lunch. A wonderful experience and a stark contrast to the high-ceiling, granite tables and hard floor restaurants that produce ear-splitting decibels of noise.

It’s always a pleasure to bring friends and out-of-town guests to Bistro 112. Menu selections are always broad enough to suit every taste and preference. Wine always reasonably priced. Service is always outstanding. Delighted to see Michelle this past Sunday as we’ve
It had the fortune to see her and her brilliant personality for some months now. A great lunch with great friends thanks to the good folks at Bistro 112.

Always a delight to sneak away to Bistro 112 for lunch, especially on a chilly, damp day. The French Onion Soup is outstanding. The wine selection is quite fine and far more than reasonably priced. All that, plus splitting a favorite sandwich with a loved one, and having warm, friendly service -- all the ingredients for a fine afternoon meal and welcome pause to a hectic day.
