I love Bistro Vendome. The food is always good, drinks well made (but wine is expensive) and I like the service. No one rushing us to leave early. I've been several times this month, mostly for Monday oysters, but I always get the artichoke salad and/or scallops or mussels.

From the moment I walked in, I felt I was in Paris. Amazing smells were emanating from the kitchen, and the very professional maître d' and waitstaff kept passing by with plates that looked delicious. Was hard to choose from many appealing menu options, especially since classic French specialties done authentically are hard to find in NYC nowadays.

We opted for wine by the glass, and both enjoyed our French red selections.

Everyone I have taken to this restaurant has loved it and wanted to go back.

After a very busy and cold Saturday, we were lucky to get a reservation (probably the last one for the evening) on Open Table for Bistro Vendome and it was a real treat to sit down and enjoy a delicious meal in comfortable surroundings and experience excellent service. It has become our favorite neighborhood restaurant.

I hadn't been to Bistro Vendome for awhile, and must say it'll be a long time before I return. I was disappointed in the coq au vin. The chicken was dried out and the sauce dark, but tasteless.
The service was friendly and professional.
I used to go to Bistro Vendome a couple of times a month and knew a lot of the staff. On Friday night I didn't see one familiar face. Which leads me to the obvious-has the restaurant changed ownership or management? If so, the quality of what used to be a friendly neighborhood restaurant will be sorely missed.

Had a lovely table for two downstairs. The service was attentive, and the food delicious. Had the tuna tartare and the Thai mussels. Both were outstanding.

I did a search for a last minute brunch in the neighborhood and found this little hidden gem. The food was delicious and had the best flavor. I found the prices to be below average, especially for the quality of food I received. The gentleman running the front of house was the most attentive to the customers I have seen in a long time, not to mention I admired his choice in bow tie.

What appeared to be a small quaint restaurant from the outside was actually a rather large layout with many different setting options and atmospheres.

I will definitely be back when the weather is better to enjoy the terrace, and to try frog legs for the first time.
