We had dinner with good friends, 3 couples total. The food was excellent but the service was the worst we've had anywhere in a long time. Our server was friendly but it took forever to get our initial glasses of wine. Our orders were taken awhile later. The food was delicious. We were then asked about a second glass of wine which we ordered but, again, was a long time (more than 20 min ) before they were delivered. He then just dropped off the dessert cards without any explanation. It took so long for him to come back that we changed our minds about ordering the dessert we were looking forward to. He then brought out the checks (we asked for separate checks by couple with straight forward orders ) and it took 3 times including a manager to get it straight. We were there for 3 1/2 hours (we had reservations. ) Although the company was great and the food was fantastic, the slowness and inattentive service left such a negative impression that we won't likely return.

A perfect anniversary dinner

We go to BistroVG 4-5 times a year but almost always for our anniversary. It’s in our neighborhood, we like its coziness and menu and it has become our tradition.
We enjoyed delicious lamb and duck and beautifully choreographed service from our charming waiter, Cory, who made great suggestions. Thanks again BistroVG!

Went to VG for a late New Year's Eve Dinner - Kitchen was supposed to close at 11, so we had a 10:30 Reservation and showed up about 10:10. They were not having a special New Year's Menu or party as such, so ordered some of their Truffle fries and roasted oysters for appetizers. Got in our entree orders about 10:45. I had scallops and my wife the salmon. By 11:30 or so, most people were finished eating, and there was a pretty good crowd in the bar area. The (New) owners were mingling with crowd and some of their friends and family. They brought out noisemakers and hats and everyone watched countdown on TV. It was like being a a party at someone's house - really nice surprise.

This was a disappointing visit to a restaurant that we typically love. We had visitors from out of town, which we have taken there before, and our expectations were set.

But this time, they were not ready for us, after waiting for a while (which we were not really bother by, we understand this being a high season), they ended up seating us at what seemed to be some sort of private 'table' at the back. A long booth around a semi-circular table. No table cloths, isolated, almost claustrophobic.

Frankly, had it not been by the good service we received and the rescue at the end replacing what did not promise to be the best dessert ever, we would've walked out of there incredibly upset, never to go back.

Still, not sure I'll be able to invite our friends there again...

Don't seat people in that little closed environment... If that is all you have available, let people chose and set the expectation really low! Ambience and comfort are everything for a nice experience.

Good food, sometimes a bit over done from a creativity perspective. A bit too heavy on sauces so beware. They have two dining rooms, two separate looks and feel. The main dining room is better, more formal. The other room is casual and seating is uncomfortable. They have a fireplace and bar area which is nice especially when it’s cold outside. Overall the restaurant is good and is owned by a group that owns several Alpharetta area restaurants, Made, Aspens, Vinnys, Theo Bakery

Late dinner on Christmas Eve. Heavy, unhurried crowd resulted in seating delay. Staff’s kind attention and free champagne made the wait seem short. Excellent, helpful waitstaff and wonderful dishes all around. Roasted oysters are very good. Steak with crabmeat special was exceptional, though the side was a little overdone. Lasagna was very good. Coffee alone was worth going.

My wife and I adore Bistro VG! The food is some of the best we've had in the metro Atlanta area, and the service is excellent. This is definitely one of those restaurants where we love to try something different each time we go because we haven't found anything we haven't liked yet. In addition, it's a great place for a romantic dinner to celebrate any occasion.

This is a great spot for a creative dining experience. Don't let the fact that its on a main road fool you. The chef is fabulous and the have a blend of simple and complex dishes. There is a long "community" table by the bar that welcomes those who welcome the company of others and just want a simple gathering space. Delightful.

We have been going to Van Gogh's/Bistro VG for at least two decades. It has changed ownership at least twice during that time - and it is still great. It has consistently excellent food, top notch service (Michael excels - as always), and something sort of scarce these days - good pacing. You are not rushed. Saw a few Internet complaints about the new ownership but we saw absolutely no problems. I don't know what the new owners have in mind, but I hope they understand their current strong points.

The food and service was excellent. The seating was not. I had reserved a table for 8 through OpenTable for 12:30 a number of days in advance. Two days prior I requested the seating to be increased to 9. The reservation was confirmed to Bistro VG the night before. Upon arrival I found our group was already seated in the bar area opposite the pizza oven. The table we were seated was meant to seat perhaps 7. It was far too tight for 9. Also it had no table cloth as did most of the other tables in the restaurant. In that regard I was disappointed in the respect given to my reservation.
