We had an excellent meal just like we always do.
We were able to sit outside on a beautiful evening, had great service, and excellent food. We could not have asked for more.
We will go back soon.

Food and service were wonderful. The only complaint we had was the outdoor speakers were located so close to the tables that we had to move to be able to hear our conversation. Relocate the speakers, or figure a way to make the music less intrusive. We requested the volume be turned down and they said it was as low as it would go!

Food is awesome
Ambiance is awesome.
Drinks are awesome.
Service was awful.

Server was rushing us. Wanted us to order everything all at once. When we said we didn’t know what we wanted for entrees but would start with apps, it was like we were annoying the kitchen who “you know has been working all day” and worse that “our food might be really delayed because it has to ‘rest’ and the chef wants to schedule everything out” We said we were fine with waiting and weren’t in a hurry, but then our server became far less attentive.

Maybe we just don’t need to go back there if that’s how the kitchen is run. But it was a very negative customer service experience. It stinks because it really is a great restaurant.

But I’ve never been to a nice restaurant that wanted me to decide my whole meal within 15 minutes of arriving and before ordering even an appetizer. Feels very kitchen-centered rather than customer-centered.

Neither we nor our friends liked it at all and were pretty put off.

Everything was perfect—the food, the service, the ambiance. We had cocktails, fromage and charcuterie, warm bread, wine, filet mignon, steak and frites, spinach, olive potatoes, and crepes for dessert with coffee. All were presented well and cooked to perfection. We plan to go there again for our anniversary. This will be our go-to place for special occasions.

Service was good - Food was good - ambiance was great - the restaurant really helped us when my wife was cold and wanted to switch tables. Waiter offered us bread for the table and we accepted. When the food took a while we asked for a little more bread for my pregnant wife. We got hit with bread charges at $3.50 a pop. Its not breaking the bank, but would have been a cool gesture for the restaurant to say hey, sorry your food took a while, heres some bread on us.

Ellie was amazing… She was all alone in serving for the most part… She did a fantastic job of balancing everything and everyone. Out of eight of us, there was only one food issue… And that was the degree of temperature on a steak. But all in all very lovely birthday dinner for a very sweet friend! Thanks to everyone!

Was totally disappointed with the owner and his attitude.
I thought satisfying a customer but I guess he doesn’t care.
I ordered mussels. After. Waiting more than an hour to be served.
When the mussels came they were out of the shells and had maybe 10 to twelve mussels. He claimed there were a pound. No way.
We will not be back.

WWOW!!!! In all the years we have had a date night... I can’t say there’s been an evening like this. Literally, the most seamless, executed dinner experience, combined with genuine connection with the chef, Matt. The passion and artistry in which he creates his dishes is magical I can’t forget our server, Damien, his attentiveness was spot on. On point, the entire evening. This truly is a hidden gem in Roswell! Excellence through and through - bravo!!

We celebrated our anniversary dinner their and Laurie from London was an outstanding server! She was very attentive and helpful. The ambiance is the best, and this restaurant is a must go to if you have never been there. You will not be disappointed. Their garden room is delightful for lunches, and I will be hosting a group for 10 or so on their outside back patio soon. Love this place!!

It was our 22 anniversary. They had a wedding reception going on in another room. They did ask us to order everything at once and they would stage the courses. They did do a fabulous job with that. Last time we went it had mood lighting and was much quieter. I missed the ambiance of a French restaurant and ended up with amazing French food with an American ambiance.

I love this place, especially the outdoor seating which is perfect in the fall. Sarah was our waitress and she was exceptional. The crabcake entree is amazing just make sure to ask what the market price is bc apparently the cost of crabmeat has gone up a lot. My friend wasn’t crazy about the steak tartare but they didn’t charge her for it and they brought out the octopus appetizer which she did really enjoy. The ambiance of Bistro VG is unmatched in my opinion and the service has always been wonderful ❤️

We made a reservation because we wanted to eat at a local French restaurant and chose this restaurant after reviewing their menu and celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. When we arrived we were seted promptly and our server Louise was absolutely delightful. She made recommendations and was very professional.
My husband ordered the Dover Sole at $47 which was supposed to come with one side. Traditionally Dover Sole is fileted tableside by the chef. Instead he was presented with the cooked fish and the server took it back into the kitchen and returned with it several minutes later along with my meal which was Steak frites which I ordered medium rare. When I took a bite of my meal it was cold. The server returned and I said my meal was cold and she took it back to the kitchen. A few minutes later she returned and the meat was cooked well done. After letting the server know the manager came out and asked if I wanted anything else to which I replied no. The Steak Frites also had 6 very small pieces of meat equal to 3 ounces of meat. Not a value at $26. I asked my husband how his meal was and he replied its tasty but lukewarm. The manager did comp my meal and provide us with dessert but being in the restaurant business along with my husband for 25 years this experience was poor not to mention we were celebrating a milestone wedding anniversary. Finally we arrived for our reservation at 7pm and finally left at 9:11pm and the dining room was fairly empty the entire time we were there. To conclude this was not a great way to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary

Always one of my favorite places, but last night was tough. Could really feel the understaffed impact. Our food took forever to come out and never even got one of our entrées that we ordered. Nothing was adjusted on the bill in light of that. Hopefully some of these issues can get worked out

Food is excellent. You can tell that a lot of thought and creativity is infused into menu items and preparation. We had the oysters, scallops and mushroom pasta, each of which was outstanding. Food and drink delivery can be a bit slow, but maybe that is in line with French cuisine.

Definitely will go back soon.

From the beginning Terry did a magnificent job. His recommendations were perfect. Celebrating our anniversary, we decided to try every course including drinks and wine and dessert. Each offering was superb! The short ribs were deliciously tender and the scallops were cooked to perfection. The Oysters Rockefeller was the best my husband ever had! The tables were situated far enough from each other that we did not hear conversations at other tables. The manager and a former waiter visited our table to ensure we were happy. The ambiance is always beautiful at this venue. Oh, and Terry snapped the best pic...received multiple compliments from our Facebook post! We had such a relaxing and memorable anniversary evening at Bistro VG! Thank you! We loved it!
