Was not up to our the usual level of dinning experience we have had there in the past. Missed having Michael as our server. He always goes out of his way to make it special. New owner/manager didnt even acknowledge us even though we have eaten there multiple times and have even spoken to him in the past.

Ended up dining in the bar. It was 1/2 price bottle of wine night — great deal!
My wife’s salad was delicious. Her crabcake, however, wasn’t up to par — too much filler; not much crab.
The cioppino was fabulous!

We've driven past and said "we should try Bistro VG" enough times to finally book a table... another couple plus my wife and I visited on a Friday evening and tried as much as we could. Charcuterie and fromage, small plates, entrees (including the specials), dessert, drinks, and coffee. The small plates were excellent - and hardly small!! We should have ordered more of them and fewer of the entrees... more food than we could get through passed across our table. The meat and cheese selections were generous with a wide variety of mustards, bread/crackers, and preserves alongside. The calamari was OK, the octopus was excellent, and the gnocchi was FANTASTIC. The entrees were good all around but outshined by the small plates, cocktails, and beignets. Biggest knock was that our server disappeared a few times and some empty plates spent a couple of trips sitting on our table. We'll definitely be going back to try the remainder of the menu.

...the worst service I have experienced in five years. Broken corks, wrong selections brought to the table, request for the wine to be iced resulted in a glass of ice!
Food was very bland and completely overpriced for the quality and quantity received.
Finally, what service there was was incredibly slow even though the restaurant was virtually empty.
I shall never return.

I have had two lunches there that were excellent. We picked a bad night to go for dinner. There were two large parties and the noise level was extremely high. Could hardly talk across the table. Also I think the large crowd affected food quality. It was not up to what I had experienced At lunchtime.

The pate did not have much flavor, the gnocchi were very good, there was a green onion piece in the gnocchi with the root still attached, not being carefully prepped. Food needs some attention to detail

It was a Sunday night and it just was “off”. My thoughts and guess:kitchen people had the day off as food VERY slow to come out, not near enough servers,NO bartender which meant server had to supplement, the seating comfort at the couch in the sun room was terrible. Management very responsive and always working hard to keep things together.....but a very tall task this Sunday night.
I’ll be back as management fixed my food quality issue; people we were with will not be back.

Mediocre for the $. Use to be much better. Very limited "French" menu items considering its touted as a French restraunt. Wine list was mostly California. Risotto was overcooked and soupy although scallops were good. Husband liked the duck but not overly thrilled with the octopus appetizer. Would choose another option for the money.

We have been to this restaurant many many times and this time was the worst. Food was not up to par, and wait service was awful. We had to ask our server if we could possibly order, we did not hear about the specials, and then we had to find out waiter to ask for our check, I will be along time before we return.

Truly sad to see this once good restaurant decline to less than mediocre. The waiter was overly friendly to the point of being intrusive. The food was over sauced with competing flavors and the presentation was slightly better than a mess hall. The lamb was a triple G, greasy, gamey and gnarly served on a bed of impenetrable faro. We will not return.

This could be my first review after hundreds of Open Table. I’m so excited to find a restaurant locally that I did not know about. I travel the world and consider myself a foodie. The grilled octopus was better than anything I’ve ever had internationally. Service and ambiance divine.

We very much enjoyed the physical space and the service. The food was certainly not bad, however everything was under-seasoned and lacked that wow-factor. The flavors did not match the terrific service or expensive prices.
