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.

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.

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!!

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.

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.

BV is a lovely East Side French resto. Pleasant interior, excellent service, very good food and reasonable prices. Very much a local spot -- few tourists wander this far east. But well worth the trip. A New York neighborhood French place at its very best.

We love Bistro Vendome for lunch or dinner. The food is always great, interesting and delicious selection of specials and menu items and you can't go wrong with the moules and pomme frites. They are always fabulous. The staff are wonderful. Gracious and efficient and it's a pretty room upstairs or on the little patio in the summer. Well priced and very good wine list.
