    May 2, 2019 they introduced their new menu for warm weather. It contains some Middle Eastern dishes that were just great. These chefs can do anything and they surprise all the time. The staff could not be more friendly. They take August off to go back to France so don't miss the new menu. Chef Emanuel comes around to see how you like his food. The bar tender remembers my wife's cocktail. Jeff, our server, could not be more present yet you hardly notice. He is just there when you need him. This is a big city treat in a small town with the best of both worlds in one lovely place with outdoor dinning, if you prefer.

    We have been to this lovely restaurant many times. We always bring our visiting guests here for happy hour or an evening meal on the enclosed patio. The service is impeccable. All staff are prompt and attentive without being intrusive, so your evening just flows easily. The wine list is adequately diverse and single glass selections are varied and plentiful, as well as beer selections. This chef has a way with sauces!! The peppercorn sauce on my bistro steak was sublime. Be sure to get a side of the mushrooms!! Heaven! You really can’t go wrong with any of the entrees. Also, I have to be creative when ordering due to some restrictions like gluten free and very low carb. They always happily accommodate and offer suggestions. They will do lots of tweaking to make your meal personal and delicious. Locals and people who know the area consider this bistro a gem. It’s easily in my top 5 of all restaurants in the area for excellence and consistency- and we dine out a lot!

    Very good service and a great table. The PEI moules were excellent, very tiny and flavorful. The French bread is remarkable. This restaurant is becoming one of our favorites. It has not disappointed. Hope to return one more time before heading home at the end of April.

    Someone in this kitchen is overly enamored with truffle oil: from the Vichyssoise to the French fries, all you could taste was the overwhelming truffle oil. Service seemed to be comprised of constant patrols watching every bite. The white Cotes du Rhône was delicious and good value by the glass - otherwise, not very enjoyable...

    La Brasserie Bistro has always been our favorite restaurant in the desert. The chef is super creative with a blend of fresh food and the team is always able to present the food very attractively. The wait staff does an excellent job of timing the delivery of each course - we are never rushed, nor does a course get cold while we finish a previous item.

    We had a wonderful dinner on our first night on vacation. We sat outside on patio and even though it is located in a strip mall you felt very secluded and ambiance was very nice. We had the octopus and stuffed calamari which was dislish for an appetizer then I had the Char and my husband had the veil. Bother were excellent. Suggestion go on Sundsy all their bottles of wine are 1/2 price and their wine list is a little pricey makes it worth it.

    We arrived early and were graciously accommodated. We were seated outside which we requested. However, we were seated at a table in the corner by the bar window. We commented on the bothersome flies. Our waiter said that they were a problem but at no time did we see other patrons waving flies away. We were at a table with no circulation and felt we should have been moved. After all, we were one of the first to arrive. At one point, I covered my food with my napkin in between bites. I suggest fans if the flies continue to be a nuisance. I eat at La Brasserie often but it will be awhile til I return. The food and service were Excellent as usual but the flies were disgusting and ruined our fine dining.

    As usual, we enjoyed our dinner. Beef Bourguignon, Wiener Schnitzel, Calf Liver and the Cod special were all excellent. Portions are huge, so we forgo appetizers but the ones we saw looked oh so tasty. Service was good and knowledgeable. We dined on the patio and found it much more pleasant than inside which is dark with tables placed very close together. Thank you for an enjoyable dining experience.

    We were seated quickly by a very pleasant hostess at a table next to the patio wall which location I had requested when I made the reservation - and our server was Robert who knew his wines. He also knew details of the food and with his help we shared a delicious beet and goat cheese salad - I had the special of the evening (duck) and my husband enjoyed the Arctic Char. Robert suggested a French Rhone white for me and my husband enjoyed 2 different French reds. We were happy to quickly look over the dessert menu - and then, when we asked for affogatos instead of the menu choices, Robert knew what they were and had them prepared them for us. Wonderful evening. La Brasserie Bistro is a "Must Go" every trip we take to the desert - and this experience was no exception.

    Service was slow. I have not experienced that previously. I did not realize that on Sunday evenings entrees and bottles of wine are half-price so the restaurant was busy. Our waiter was inattentive and not friendly. It took an unusual amount of time to get our drink orders and bread for the table. I will be back, but perhaps not on a Sunday evening. My previous experiences were very positive
