I wanted to get a large group of my friends together for brunch and saw they could accomodate bigger parties. There was a lot of corny french decor, it was kind of unsettling. The food was fine and edible, but not good enough to reflect the prices they carried- really expensive for simple dishes. Overall, I'd say this place is kind of weird and ok dining experience.

We had a very large group go to Bistro Bistro for brunch on New Year’s Day. They had a buffet with so many options, all of which were plentiful. They also had carved beef, made to order omelets, fresh fruit and a variety of pastries. There weren’t many other people in the restaurant, which resulted in attentive service. We were so appreciative that we were able to be accommodated on a holiday and will definitely keep Bistro Bistro in mind for future get togethers!!

The service was excellent and so was the food. I ordered something that I did not care for and they took it back without hesitation and make me something else. The Steak and eggs were delicious and the service was impeccable!

The menu was excellent! The food was very good. It took awhile for the one of many waiters to come to take our order. I think one waiter should be assigned to each table instead of all different waiters. Other than the service the overall experience was very good.

For Christmas Day dining, the service was not as friendly as it usually is, and the food was not as well prepared. I had poulet francais, which I've had before in this restaurant and liked very much; but on this day it was not well prepared; in fact, it tasted as though it had been recooked and then reheated. It was tough and tasteless, and I didn't finish it. The restaurant showed courtesy in not charging me. Overall, a disappointing experience. Bistro Bistro is a good restaurant; but somehow it really failed on Christmas.
