This is a hidden gem....great menu selection....was with a group that needed a nut-free, gluten free, and dairy free selection....usually a challenge but not at VG Bistro. Food was delicious and service attentive.

I have been many times and I was very disappointied on this visit. It was a Wednesday night and ther restaurant was empty, our service was terrible. While th food was tasty i felt the portions were very small and not worth the cost of the meal.

We were a group of 6 and I dont think any of us will be back.

We are sorry to hear your last experience with us was not up to your/our expectations. We pride ourselves in the food we serve, as well as the service we provide along with it, and we are disappointed you did not get that side of the restaurant last week. I can only hope you will give us the chance to make it right. Please let me know if you are willing to come back, as i would like to make sure we do something special to make up for our shortcomings last week. My name is Nicholas!

We chose Bistro VG for a date night. I will preface my review with the fact that we went out with some friends to The Optimist in Midtown the night before. Perhaps the contrast of the two experiences biased my opinion about VG a bit. Compared to The Optimist it fell short on all accounts, yet most of the items were priced only a few dollars less (and some were a few dollars more). Our server was pleasant, but not attentive. He seemed very preoccupied with the table next to us, which was also just a couple. The food was sorely disappointing for what we paid. I walked away from The Optimist feeling like we had gotten our money's worth. I felt very underwhelmed leaving Bistro VG. The only saving graces were the gnocchi and the flourless chocolate torte. The tuna tartar served with potato chips was especially regretful. I was really hoping to like this place so that we could have a "regular" spot off of Canton Street. Sadly, this will not be it.

We went for our 4 year anniversary and it was wonderful! We went on a Monday night so it was very quiet and not many people there. We sat in the cozy back room near the bar. The decor is gorgeous! Our waiter was wonderful and after telling him I was torn between steak and seafood he offered to create my very own surf and turf dish! Super accommodating! Definitely one of our new favorites! Not to mention the food was to die for!

Bistro VG

Sorry about the tomahawk, but it has not been on the menu for a very long time. Maybe it's time to revisit making it a staple item again. We are thrilled that you still enjoyed the ribeye though!

Lackluster experience!

The food and the service was ok, but not excellent. The food order was messed up and the server could not answer basic questions about the food and wine without running to check. Don't get me wrong, we did get answers ultimately and we did get the order right eventually. Although, I really hated having the asparagus show up when we were just about done!

As for the food, I expected to be wowed since the price was $$. The filet, at $35, was a good cut of meat and cooked properly, but for that price, I expected some sauce and there was none.

Overall I would say our experience was not great. When we go to a French restaurant, we expect everything to be awesome and amazing and we were left wanting.

Ordered four small plates, quail was very good, lamb "lollipops" were tepid at best but had good flavor, crab cake was cold in middle and had to be reheated; the gnocchi was raw, inedible and sent back. Service was average. Will give it another try based on feedback from friends who have been, hoping maybe our experience was on off night.

Probably our own fault for electing to be seated in the bar even though we had a table reservation in the restaurant however the bar area is a great space and for me makes Bistro VG a stand out.

Firstly service was painfully slow, only appeared to be one server for a full bar area, they were trying hard however completely overwhelmed.

Duck breast with orange sauce has to be one of the basics in any kitchen and they messed it up, over cooked and tough duck breast with a strange tasting and lackluster sauce, dry halibut both dishes lukewarm and over priced for the quality.

Will probably go back however great spot for some appetizers and drinks, sorry not for dinner.

The bartender refused to serve me an after dinner drink saying that I was drunk. I had exactly two glasses of wine with my dinner that evening and was TOTALLY sober. I have no idea as to why he felt that way about me but I wasn’t acting inappropriately nor as if I was under the influence AT ALL! I was very insulted and neither my friend nor I will be returning...

I’ve been coming to this restaurant since it was still named Van Gough’s.

Almost everyone I talk to still hates that they changed the interior to the stark white look. It is now cold and once amazingly charming and romantic charm has been long lost.

However, the spot on food and service still remain. If
You need a great place for a meal, special event, or date. This place never disappoints.

We have been coming here for a few years. My favorite meal is the crabcake and side salad. The last two times we came the crabcake was cold and I was so disappointed. So I decided to try something else this time. I had the same in flatbread and Kale salad. And it was very good. Kale salad could’ve served a family of 4. On a sidenote, the guy who walks around the restaurant singing it’s kind of cheesy! But he does have a fairly good voice

Thank you for your feedback and review. We apologize about your experience with the crabcake the last couple of visits.

Glad you found something new to enjoy, and we will be sure to keep an eye on the crabcake.
