The staff was nice, the service was great and the food was amazing.
Great local restaurant with large circle of regulars. Owners are very friendly; staff usually accommodating. Food consistently good. Among best mussels in town. But, can’t go wrong with anything on the menu
A good stable neighborhood gem.
Nice French neighborhood place
I love this restaurant-- welcoming, warm, reliable, delicious.
I liked the tuna tartare and the bronzino. However all the appetizers and entrees are good.
We all really enjoyed our meals. I now consider BV a true neighborhood gem. Consistently very good food and lovely service. Our favorite in the area .
We thought the food was very good. The beet and goat cheese appetizer was delicious. However, the service was slow. We waited too long for our order to be taken and had to chase down our check. It felt as though the B team was on the evening we were there. We would definitely return for the food and hope that the service would be better.
My absolute favorite neighborhood French restaurant. Close your eyes and you could be in France. Delicious cassoulet, authentic boeuf bourguignon.
The profiterolles are my idea of the perfect dessert.
Excellent for both lunch and dinner.
The food is always consistently tasty . The specials of the day very good ,
the hanger steak, mussels and tarte aux pommes are delicious
This is one of the best restaurants in the city.
The food and the service is outstanding!
Date night with my wife, we come here a lot because the food is really good. Best Tuna Tartare ever!
My wife loves their Steak Tartare. This is also the only place I get their specials regularly. Our go to .
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.
Love the varied layout from casual pub entry to elegant dining areas and even seasonal outdoor seating. Looking forward to my next trip.
First visit was an excellent choice it was old friends doing business the perfect relaxed but formal atmosphere. Thank you!
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.
Great food, service is good,always satisfied! Plenty of tables!
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.
Excellent. Unexpected value
Food was first rate from start to finish. Nice table, attentive staff
An absolute winner.
Beautiful dining room, great food, wonderful service. Perfect in every way.
Very enjoyable bistro experience.
A fine place to dine and discuss personal and/or business matters with a friend or colleague.
Fish was underdone and bloody.
They did not charge us for the fish
Special liver dish was excellent. The Hostess and waiter were friendly and attentive and a rarity in New York dinning the waiter bought me a drink in appreciation for a compliment my date made of the excellent service.
We got to NYC on Sunday and dined at Bistro Vendome because my wife was craving Dover Sole. Much to our surprise, they also have a fish soup that was the best we have had other than in France or the Caribbean. I had the escargot which were superb, and delicious frogs legs! We had planned to eat at another French restaurant the following Thursday, but we enjoyed Bistro Vendome so much, we cancelled the other reservation and dined there again. My wife had the marvelous fish soup again, and a crab cake special, while I enjoyed the escargot once again, followed by the sea bass. Both nights we enjoyed a very refreshing Chablis from the wine list. I would like to be able to comment on the deserts, but we were so full, we could only read them from the menu! We will be back.
We'd only been to the restaurant for lunch and brunch before (we love the skylight), but dinner was terrific and we will do it again soon. I thought I was going to have the mussels (6 versions) until I heard there was a tripe special. It was great. Rack of lamb was fine and chocolate fondant excellent.
I was looking for a delicious French restaurant in the city and stumbled on this place through searching on open table. It was absolutely delicious. We started with escargot and that was perfect. Then got ceaser salads that were huge and fresh. For main dishes we got muscles in the Thai curry sauce that were to die for. One of us got the salmon dish that was also fresh and cooked well. We also got the sea bass which was perfectly cooked, tasty and filling. We got the chocolate fondant for dessert which was amazing. Such a fabulous meal, fantastic service and we will definitely be back.
Reliable food and service.
Always love this neighborhood gem. Food is consistently delicious and authentically French.
The food was very good. I always have the sewer line and that was good and my wife had the branzino - tasty. One of the reasons we went, was the memory of how delicious the escargot was – not this time. Tony and overcooked. 84 bucks a head, champagne 18 bucks a glass, and wth a good tip, 300 bucks for 2 for NY Eve dinner. It was worth maybe 200 total. Probably not going back if at all.
fabulous brunch on weekends. first time for us at our favorite restaurant. great choices, good selection of beverages,reasonable.
I met a friend for lunch at this cozy bistro. Authentic, relaxed with yummy food. I will go again.
We have celebrated Christmas Day dinner at Bistro Vendome for the past 5 years. It is always excellent. The food is wonderful and the service is the best. We always look forward to our Christmas Day dinner each year. Merci beaucoup, Bistro Vendome!
My friend and I have a tradition to go to Bistro for Christmas Eve. This place never disappoints! The food is great , it's quiet , so u can hear yourself talk , friendly staff , nice wine selection. It's my favorite place to dine in NY
Bistro Vendome is a neighborhood favorite! The Belgian bistro fare is consistently great! Atmosphere is also very quaint, especially in the summer time if you can get an outdoor table on the terrace. Noise level is low - Good Place to hang out with friends to catch up. Food is always excellent! My favorites: fish soup, escargots, scallops - to die for!! Highly recommend!!
The food is always delightful, the service a bit spotty but fine this time. The lower level is freezing on such a cold night compared to the cosy upper level.
