Charming restaurant with good food. But very expensive particularly for Valentines where they restricted a prix fixed menu for a significant upcharge over the regular menu. That is disappointing. Service was good but seem robotic......clearly they we're accommodating two seatings.

Visiting here for lunch about 2 months ago and loved it! Tonight? Not so much. Took an hour to get our entrees and my husband’s steak was cold. Bummer.

The salad had very little flavor, except for the warm goat cheese croquets that were delicious. Broccolini soup needed seasoning. Frankly, I was disappointed.

I have had several meals at this location. I must admit it was the first time I had a reservation for brunch.

Never again. The noise was unbearable. The waitress was not able to hear our order without having us repeat it several times.

Busy Sunday brunch. We were seated on the enclosed terrace next to a large group of energetic, very loud and happy young ladies celebrating a baby shower. As a result, it was hard to talk or hear anything at our table.
Food was good, and staff was understanding. We'll go back at a less popular time and ask for a table in the main dining room.

We went for my husbands birthday and we were not disappointed! Started with the escargot, shared a delicious bibb salad (wow, so fresh and crsipy!) and we both enjoyed out entrees (Cajun chicken and the filet). We'll be returning when we have another hankering for French.

We love this restaurant so much it’s so reminds us of when we have been in Paris France. Any of the eggs Benedict dishes are superb and the cappuccino and the bread and pretty much everything! The manager is excellent and Oceana our waitress is totally amazing!

We had 1pm reservations (2 people at lunch). Were right no time but no table. Had to stand by busy pass thru for 20 minutes until table available. Manager was aware but did not apologize for our wait or offer a drink. We actually did not have to return to work so we were able to wait. Otherwise, we would have left. Bad way to do business. If you can't honor a reservation, at least tell the people, offer a free drink and give an ETA of table availability.

We LOVE Le Bibloquet; it’s a respite in a busy day or a great place to meet friends. The food is outstanding and my husband finally on our last visit had something other than Cajun chicken. He enjoyed his dinner, but missed his usual meal.

THANK YOU and your staff for a wonderful experience everytime we’re there.

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!

Le Bilboquet is a neighborhood gem of a restaurant that once you go - you find yourselves going back very often. Super service; excellent food - the cajun chicken is not to be missed. And a variety of other continental dining options. The service is wonderful - and when it is lovely outside there is perfect seating -just like sitting on a patio of a French Bistro. Worth the drive. Excellent. Among the top restaurants in Dallas.

My wife and I dined recently at Le Bilboquet to celebrate her birthday. The food was pretty good. Our waiter was nice and very attentive. However, we were seated on the edge of a very busy walkway used by the restaurant wait staff to carry food from the kitchen out to the diners. This was a tolerable situation at first and I didn’t think much of it. We were having a good time and enjoying our experience.

However, during the middle of our meal, while we were eating our dinner, the restaurant made the decision to expand a four-seater table out to a six-seater and sat a full table there immediately next to us. I could hit the diner with my elbow if I wanted to…this person was maybe 12 inches away from me. The main walkway mentioned previously remained busy as expected. Countless wait-staff started “squeezing” by me every 15-30 seconds carrying food out to the diners. I was literally being physically contacted over and over again while eating my food as the staff kept maneuvering by. After about five minutes, again...while we were eating dinner and trying to have conversation, we were interrupted by an employee of the restaurant who asked us if it was OK to “move” our table and this person proceeded to lift our table with his hands and push it further away from the six-seat table they just sat down. My wife and I both had to move our chairs to continue eating and we were consequentially pushed closer to the table on the other side of us, basically pinned in on both sides. At several points, I had to dodge plates with food as they were being carried by. Our experience was ruined. We had to hurriedly finish our meal so we could ask for the check and get out of there. Our waiter understood what was going on and apologized, even offered a free appetizer if we were to come back. However, I am very frustrated to pay high prices for such a poor experience and would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

I booked the table over a month ago. We were seated outside at an uncovered or heated front terrace just before a major storm event; we were then moved (upon our own demand) because of the eminent weather event, and given the worst table in the house next to the service station, kitchen and service aisle. We were treated like tourists when indeed we are locals.

The food was barely warm as well as overcooked (halibut and pork chop).
