Love the mussels Provençal. If you’re a garlic lover get them!
A true gem in East Midtown. Last night, delicious crab cake special. Also excellent mussels and branzino. You can't go wrong with Bistro Vendome.
Great food and courteous service
We have lived in France for 40 years, and we just had the best food ever....truly fantastic and authentic French cuisine!
Artichoke salad was disappointing and mussels mariniere were tasteless.
This restaurant is constantly top notch food, service and ambiance. The staff are attentive the beet carpaccio salad is great. The mussel selection is great and tastes great. The branzino is great
Never coming back ! Staff with attitude
Wonderful neighborhood or special occasion restaurant. Wonderful escargot, duck, mussels—and fries. So glad they are thriving!
Fantast ic mussels and all good great. Back garden lovely ! Highly recommend!
Lovely, small Authentic French Bistro on the Upper East Side of NYC. Food was delicious. I would highly recommend. In fact i booked my sons Wedding rehearsal dinner there for next month!
Excellent, as always.
All the food was delicious. A real French restaurant experience
This is one of our favorite neighborhood places so we will offer a little constructive criticism. On a recent visit we tried the branzino and although the fish itself was fine, the diced zucchini and artichoke base did not go well with the dish. Maybe try something simpler that won't fight with the fish. Also, service was generally good but we had to literally corral a server to get our check - too long of a wait. But still a great spot overall.
Bistro Vendome never disappoints. Charming and intimate surroundings/delicious food.
Never been so disappointed and disrespected by a manager ! dinner with my father 91 and never to come back ! Now at Neary’s around the corner and couldn’t be happier with a family welcome! You have to try if you haven’t yet ! Jimmy birthday 91 surprise party this Tuesday September 14 2021
We love eating there. The food is always good! However, when busy, the service is poor. This time, it was the case of bad service. I was a bit embarrassed with our guests (it was a farewell dinner to them) with the long wait: to bring drinks , to take the orders etc. We gave up to re-order more wine and desserts. In brief: I really recommend Bistrô Vendome for the food and advice not to go when busy.
We discovered this side street gem by accident. We are overjoyed and have been there twice this week.
I would give a list of our favorites but it has been everything we have tried and we haven't tried anything twice yet. If you haven't been, do yourself a favor and go!
Superb food, attentive service, good vibe.
Food was great. We were not rushed. The back patio was lovely.
We enjoyed lunch with friends on the terrace. Will definitely return to this lovely restaurant.
Outstanding dining experience!!
Never coming back ! You think New Yorkers have a Attitude?
Sat outside in the patio area. Lovely food choices and patient staff
A popular mid-town east location and a neighborhood favorite lives up to its reputation.
The food was amazing. The French Onion soul was made to perfection. The steaks were juicy and delicious. Really liked the laid back ambiance of the place
Fabulous food with exceptional service
Great atmosphere where do you sit outside or inside
The Dover Sole and muscles are amazing !!!
Tuna tartare and the escargot fabulous
And the rose wine top everything off !!!
Always has a real nice crowd of French people !!!

Vendome is a charming neighborhood bistro with a more than adequate French menu. Nice for both lunch and dinner.
I hadn’t been there in a while and I wanted a really nice place. I wasn’t disappointed. Everything was amazing! I can’t wait to go back!
Never coming back ! Manager with a attitude
I love everything about Bistro Vendome!
Food was very good, as usual. Unfortunately, the restaurant is VERY poorly managed and the service was horrible. Such a shame when the food is so good and everything else is so bad!
We sat on the outdoor patio, which is lovely. Tables are well spaced. The food was delicious. My only quibble is that the service was inattentive. I sat with an empty water glass for most of my meal, and then had to ask for water. There also was no checkback to see how everything was.
Great food and service
This place never disappoints.
The host was extremely rude and sat four of us at a table for three without a chair for the fourth. We asked to move and were told it wasn't possible although we saw several better empty tables. We had a 7pm reservation and arrived at 7pm. The air conditioning was not functioning and it was very uncomfortable. Nothing was done to compensate for this - drinks for the table, etc. - service was extremely slow and we had to flag down servers to get water refilled and ask where our food was.
This restaurant was one of our favorites and we had plans to go two more times this month but now we do not feel comfortable going back.
As usual, we enjoyed our meal at Bistro Vendome. The food was excellent, service was professional and friendly and the ambience (outside) was fine. We strongly recommend the restaurant.
We had to wait quite a long time for our main meal.
The waitress said that the kitchen was very busy.
Portions have been reduced on the mussels, but still are good. We ate downstairs and it was too noisy for to hold easy listening conversation. However, staff and service were excellent...We would go back.
I loved this place. Great neighborhood eatery. I had a feeling it’d be good when I heard many patrons speaking French. The food is quite good. The SERVICE was the best. I felt at home because of the people waiting on us. The were efficient. They were friendly. They even had me laughing at a time when I needed a good laugh. They get me there. I want to come back ASAP. Thanks, guys.
Very enjoyable experience from the moment we arrived met by the very friendly gentleman, sorry I didn’t ask for his name.
All the staff were very pleasant. Nice selection of French cuisine. I especially enjoyed the escargot, vichyssoise, duck confit, raspberry gratin and profiteroles. Nice selection of cocktails and wine. The restaurant was packed which is always a good sign.
