Never disappointed in dining at Le Bistro. Great martinis, great food and you always feel welcomed. Missed the Thursday Night Jazz but looking forward to its return in the fall.

I've been a loyal patron of this restaurant since it opened. Seems to be heading downhill. Never have I been as disappointed as this time. There was one waitress for the entire restaurant, leaving us wanting for food and drink for a very long time. They were out of my first choice as well as one of the other diners in my party. This was not because of heavy volume but because they had not ordered it for that day. I am not sure I will be returning again.

Beautiful modern French dining room with amazingly tender steak and fall off the bone duck leg

The restaurant was very pleasant and the people couldn't have been nicer. The food was mediocre at best, but it wasn't busy and we didn't have to rush because they didn't need the table, so it was a fine evening.

It never disappoints, and I always look forward to exchanging greetings with Ludovic, Ayub, Palina, and Ileni.

A fine kitchen overall, best escargot in NYC, superb ratatouille, extra special friendly staff.

I love the food at this place. The escargot is off the charts and the Salmon and Mussels are so fresh and cooked to perfection. The service is quick, and the ambiance is authentic. Looking to my next meal at Bistro d'a Cote.

I am glad this restaurant is in my neighborhood. It has all the ingredients for a great, or at least lovely local bistro. The food is good, the decorations give a sense of authenticity. But the service was very snobbish. I had a groupon certificate and the server seemed displeased. He was abrupt, and dismissive. I want to like this restaurant - but I would think twice about going back in the near future.

This restaurant was a Groupon buy and turned out to be a wonderful surprise. The staff was friendly and the food great.

We were pleasantly surprised ! I have walked past the place for years but never paid attention. That last night changed that! My son had the baked spinach and goat cheese salad which was amazing. I loved my roasted pear and blue cheese salad. My salmon was near perfect, my husband inhaled his muscles and my son loves the chicken!
We will be back!

Great Provençal rosé. Salmon is recommended medium, because it's frozen. Wasn't bad, but I prefer fresh and rare. Immense amount of mussels in the moule frites. The best was the escargot. Really good! Not a bad place overall. These guys are definitely French. There's an air of it in everything. If that's your thing it's a good place. That our thing, so we'll be back.

So disappointing. Awful service. Food was all right but not very good. Served ketchup like a Nathan's Hot Dog place and butter like a coffee-shop would - Tacky. I would never go back.

Very nice ambiance, bar separate from dining area keeps it quiet, excellent food and huge portions, especially good coq au vin
