I took a dear friend to Bistro Garden to celebrate her birthday. The food was delicious, the restaurant, as always, looked lovely & inviting, the pianist played a creative assortment of pieces and the waiters were very attentive. When they brought the birthday soufflé, the pianist played happy birthday & she was thrilled. I have never had a bad experience at Bistro Garden and will return very soon.

Great food and service. AND they get the most important aspect of fine dining just right - they provide a QUIET and beautiful ambiance so that friends and families can visit and hear one another! That is rare and very much appreciated!!!

Unfortunately we had a very disappointing evening. We were celebrating our mothers 86th birthday. for many, many years Bistro Garden has been a family favorite for many special events, even large private parties we have given. First of all we had to ask for menus, the first bottle of wine ordered was bad. after about 1/2 hr they told us they didn't have the 2nd bottle we ordered. when they brought the 2nd bottle we had to ask for new wine glasses as they didn't remove the glasses with the bad wine. 3 of the meals were wrong and had to be returned. the vegetables and rice were cold on every dish. I don't have any idea what is going on the this lovely restaurant but it will be a long time until we return and then only if people we trust give us a good review. Such a shame for what should have been a wonderful 86th birthday celebration.

I like to come to the restaurant during the holiday. The ambiance made the restaurant. The soufflé was a special dish that I went there for. It’s the only place where I can find the grand marnier and chocolate souffle in the San Fernando valley. Love the piano player which made the dining experience so romantic and made the ambiance more along with the decoration. Very classy and old traditional New York style dining experience.

Bistro Gardens has been a family favorite since I was a child. The ambience is the same, though its time for a few upgrades. The fire was roaring, the carolers were amazing but, the staff wasn't on point. I asked for a dinner salad for my four year old and they brought me a prix fixed salad from my dinner (charged me $15 for it). I would have sent it back but, the waiter dropped it and ran. If it wasn't covered in a lemon vinaigrette, my daughter would have consumed some of it. They also only offered chicken tenders or spaghetti for children??? I'm not at a chain restaurant and my daughter doesn't care for either. We tried to change the pasta from vermicelli to fusilli or Orecchiette with some broccoli and pink sauce but, it showed up as vermicelli (aka spaghetti with marinara). They should have taken children into account seeing that it was Christmas Eve and it was a "Caroling Prix Fixed Meal." Still, it's close to home and has a great Holiday Feel to it. Well be back, just hope they consider the kiddos next Christmas Time.
