Le Bistro is Back!!!

It is hard to follow a legend like Jean Pierre, fortunately for us, David has taken over the restaurant and putting to good use the years of experience running the dinning room. The menu and format are very much the same as well as the quality of the presentations and food.

Le Bistro has always been a special place as one of the best Bistros in America, and it is wonderful to see David carrying on the tradition.

Bravo!

The food was excellent although, sadly, the chef is about to retire. The restaurant is not crowded with closely spaced tables but the noise level is high. The ambience reflects that is located in a skiing area but that's fine and expected. The five course menu was excellent with reasonable portions that don't leave you stuffed and a large number of choices. Our party of four sampled a number of choices and all were rated excellent. The wine list included a number of half-bottles which allowed us to accommodate all our tastes. Highly recommended but get there soon.

Classic French food, thoughtfully prepared and charmingly presented-- as close as one could get to a top-flight French bistro (although the food is perhaps more sophisticated than most bistros traditionally offer) outside of France. The prix fixe menu and wine pairings are an astonishingly good value, half of what a similar experience would cost in a city....if you could find it. We're so glad we had this experience, as the chef is retiring very soon. A lovely, lovely memory.

Lovely meal! Classic French with a touch of effective innovation, nice presentation, good pacing, attentive service, flawless preparation. Not a bargain meal, but I would judge it well worth the price.

Absolutely fantastic. We have not had such a wonderful meal in the Lake Tahoe area ever. Food, service, ambiance were all superb.

What a shame that they will be closing (forever) in October. Now that we have experienced Le Bistro, we will take all our friends and make the most of the short time remaining.

What a great experience at Le Bistro. I'm very skeptical about French restaurants. Many are heavy handed & lots of rich sauces. This place took classical French dishes & made them elegant, small & delicous. The balance between the courses was perfect. Would go again tomorrow.

Always enjoyable cozy environment and delicious food at Le Bistro to celebrate special occasions. Long-time server Dave is a wise wine advisor, colorful tie wearer, and all-around cool guy.

Only complaint this time - it was really warm inside - despite both doors being open.
I was grateful for the cool breeze when I went to the bathroom outside and around the back.

I have been coming to Le Bistro since the late 1990's and enjoyed every meal. Just learned that Le Bistro is closing on Oct 15 after 25 years. The current owners - a wonderful couple - are retiring and were unable to find suitable buyers. Please - do not retire until you find someone to take over. We will truly miss this wonderful restaurant if it does close. We already made reservations for the last day, Oct 15th. My wife and I, along with our friends, are hoping this is not our last meal at Le Bistro.

Reservation acknowledged

I left a detailed message and was sure that a candle would be placed in a dessert. Nothing was said or done.
As we were leaving I told the owner /manager that I left a lengthy message. No one checked messages .
Staff pays more attention to locals who frequent this restaurant
This was a special birthday for my husband and the message I left wasn't acknowledged.
Disappointed

French tasting menu only, excellent from start to finish, not inexpensive at $58 a plate however not a bad value for the excellent food. My daughter loved her beef, my lamb was perfect, as was my wife's seafood. Old school small place, been there 25yrs (guessing no remodel ever, but has a charm to it), tucked in back of a strip mall. Sounds funky but if you like French food, give it a shot.

First,Tahoe is generally a foodie desert. Le Bistro is above average thank goodness. The food is beautifully presented, but lacking inspiration. It is technically well executed, but lacking in poetry.

The cheese plate was simply boring. A wedge each of brie, cheddar and blue. Very continental dining 1975.
