The best restaurant in the world!
Of course we prefer indoor dining, but the food was delicious and the service was excellent, as always.
Always a wonderful meal with warm and gracious staff. We have been going to this restaurant for many years. Never disappointed. They have done a great job building an outdoor space with heaters that still has enough openings where you can feel safe. We were there last night. January 9th
It was OK. The food was a bit overpriced for what it was. We were very cold as there was only one heater for our table of four. In addition, a woman at another table was allowed to smoke. With the wind, the smoke circulated within the cabin which made our food less palatable: it cut my appetite.
Excellent restaurant. The three of us each enjoyed a special 3-course meal for New Year’s Eve. Our first courses included lobster bisque, lobster & mushroom ravioli, and tuna tartar. We absolutely loved each of our first courses! Our main meals included veal osso buco, beef bourguignon, and grilled sirloin steak. Each of our main dishes were delicious! Our desserts were fabulous and included 2 chocolate fondants with coconut ice cream and profiteroles with hot chocolate sauce and toasted almonds. The staff was charming & delightful! We will definitely return to this restaurant and have already recommended it to several friends & business associates! Happy New Year!
Great outdoor space and incredible food! We would definitely come back.
Bistro Vendome is such a great neighborhood restaurant, it has three levels of dining choices plus the outdoor terrace. During the Covid time, it adds Outdoor dining and Take-out services, but the food still maintains its high-level of qualities!
FANTASTIC! Wonderful people. Let’s support them!!!
Loved this restaurant. Never had mussels before. Came back two days later to eat them again

Wonderful neighborhood find. Absolutely delightful and really good traditional French food.
Really enjoy Bistro Vendome. The atmosphere is perfect for any occasion.
LOVE YOUR RESTAURANT. HAVE BEEN GOING THERE FOR YEARS.
The French bistro fare at Bistro Vendome is always perfect - it's delicious with great regular menu items and many wonderful special menu items. The food is always consistently great and the service is amazing. Owners who always remember you and have great menu advice - really lovely to deal with. A great wine list that pairs well with everything and has a number of well priced, very good wines. Would highly recommend and their patio in the summer is just lovely.
Fantastic food as always. Never disappoints. Never had a negative experience
Food is prepared perfectly
Our waitress couldn't have been more warm and friendly. Her service was excellent! My friend and I each had the prix fixe menu. I started with chicken liver pate which paired nicely with the crusty French bread. I chose salmon served over lentils for my entree. The salmon was crisp on the outside and moist on the inside. Perfect! The profiteroles made for a light dessert, so I was able to finish most of it. I found Bistro Vendome to be very charming and the ideal place to meet with a long time friend for lunch.
Not my first exceptional dining experience at Bistro Vendome. The atmosphere is pleasant and conducive to converse without yelling. Service and food never disappoint
End the night with the deliciously sweet profiteroles dusted with almonds. A fine evening with friends.
Food and service is consistently great.
neighborhood dining spot..convenient, excellent food and service.
Good local restaurant that has been around for years.
We’ve been to Bistro Vendome many times and it is very consistent. The food and service are great.
We go for special occasions or whenever we feel like having a nice dinner.
I am a regular at Bistro Vendome but wanted to bring my book club there for a meal. There were seven of us in total and everyone loved it. The food is consistently outstanding. It was just slightly slow that evening, but could be because we had a relatively big table. But that didn’t hurt the evening one but as we were drinking and chatting! The ladies LOVED their meals and want to go back next month as well. Love bringing friends there because it is always a hit!!
Quiet out of the way "old school" french bistro. Warm, genial service and traditional favorites. Good value
Food was excellent and service was exemplary.
Lovely neighborhood bistro. The steak was wonderful!
Birthday get together, great neighborhood restaurant we love it
We had a lovely Sunday evening dinner! Enjoyed he food and great service! thanks- we'll be back.
Really a 4.5 overall
This is a true French Bistro - food is great, service is wonderful and it’s a true neighborhood gem - can;t do better - all the standards of a French bistro that you love are here to love - great steak frite, mussels so many great ways, wonderful onion soup - dining here is always a pleasure
I dine here frequently. The menu has something for everyone and the food is always properly prepared. The noise during my recent visit was a bit loud due to a particular party, but otherwise a nice experience.
Excellent place....good food, good service, good prices.
The food was so good last week, I went back this week with a friend. Muscles and escargot were wonderful, as well as the scallops and veal chop. Warm intimate environment. Not cheap but worth it!
Bistro Vendome is one of the few remaining "neighborhood" French restaurants that used to
dot the East side of Manhattan. The ambiance on both levels is terrific; locals at the bar having dinner,
the lower level tables with couples or small parties enjoying the food and relaxed atmosphere.
No loud music or overly anxious wait staff to deal with. The menu is typical but varied.
The frogs legs may very well be better than in France! The wines by the glass are every good and a
generous pour. All in all, a wonderful evening ahead for all who would try this restaurant.
