" Le Bistro continues to wow guests from their funky storefront French-influenced bistro." (Sun Sentinel).
“Le Bistro is that rare dining establishment that conveys ma-and-pa-type warmth, reflecting the earnest efforts of owners” (Miami Herald)
“The food is stunning” (Gordon Ramsey)
High quality ingredients, well prepared, delicious flavors and accompaniments equals a wonderful dining experience fit for a world traveled foodie. In addition, the wonderful ambience, service and welcoming reception of the owners rendered this my best food experience in South Florida. I know you will enjoy it when you dine there. And, it was great for the guest with gluten-free requirements. Cheryl F
Fabulous experience, exceptional menu that changes regularly, outstanding service and incredibly fair priced wine list.
The escargot was among my top 3 ever eaten! Our entrees were superb. The restaurant is small, intimate. There is no noise. We had a lovely meal and look forward to our return.
Love this place! They never disappoint.
Delicious steak tartare, mouth watering escargot with fresh , hot bread to dip with. The filet was savory high quality. The right herbs and seasoning made for a delectable meal. Most enjoyable evening and is a gourmands delight
The Beef Wellington was really good. Hard to find in South Florida.
This continues to be one of my favorite restaurants in Florida. The food is always exceptional and the service is great! I live in NY all year but make sure I stop here whenever I visit my family in Florida.
It was Valentine’s Day and the wait staff was totally in the weeds. The food made up for the waiters. It was very delicious
Excellent food and attentive service. Cozy and quiet atmosphere! Make sure to ask for the escargot as it’s not on their menu but its amazing!!!!
The food was phenomenal! Plus, our server was friendly, knowledgeable, & helpful. Amazing meal!!!
A new (French) find for us and it was very enjoyable dining experience!
AJ was very slow and inattentive. The breast of duck, ordered by 5 out of 6 ladies, was rubbery and not prepared the way AJ described nor the way the menu described. There was no or little, l'orange sauce. It was rather on the spicy side. They were also cold which had AJ come by to check on us after a bite or two, could have been fixed.
We will NEVER go back.
cooking was not what we asked,
$ 320 for four people (never again)
The best restaurant by far in the area. Chef always makes the most delicious food. The menu and specials change. From time to time for a refreshing change is options.
Cute decor and comfortable feel inside.
Consistent is the word I’d use for Le Bistro. Meal was spot on. Never disappointed. Thank you for another lovely meal!
This is our anniversary restaurant where I proposed to my (now) wife 2 years ago and we go back every year. Well worth it.
What a gem! Mouth-watering dishes, perfectly prepared. Diverse wine selection. Don’t let the generic strip mall fool you. Once inside, you’re transported to France. We couldn’t believe we were the only diners on a Friday evening, however early. One of my best friends is a Master French Chef, and this menu rivals everything I’ve tried by trying meals prepped by him and his colleagues. A stupendous alternative to standard chain restaurant fare in the area. Pompano Beach locals - EAT HERE! You don’t know what you’re missing!
This is a lovely small neighborhood gem of a restaurant. The food was surperb and presented well. The service was excellent. If you are in Ft. Lauderdale, this should be on your list as a place to eat.
Great food and flavour with nice staff. Would go any time. Good value too.
First time visit at lunch time. Had a Thanksgiving menu. Small, very friendly and timely service. Best feature is that the portions were perfect - no leftovers to leave or take. When we finished eating we were full but not stuffed. Some original drinks and dishes. Even in special menu, had something for everything. Outstanding pecan pie: warm, thin crisp crust, packed w pecans and caramel. Delicious lavender champagne. Friendly customers that chat with each other exchanging tips on what to order. With advance notice can place some special orders.
Le Bistro is a wonderful restaurant with friendly service and delicious, quality cooked to order menu selections. The staff is accommodating and helpful, and the chef is very skilled. Our favorites include the breast of duck, beef wellington and seafood of the day. House made desserts are delicious. We appreciate the well-thought wine selections. Try their refreshing bistro salad, and made to order french fries. And don't forget the mushrooms! Love this place.
This place is always great for fine French like dining. Never a complaint from anyone I took there.
This is a fabulous hidden gem! We dine here every other week, it’s so good.
Le Bistro continues to impress me. Food is ALAWAYS amazing. I love the owners. So friendly and warm. My go to place when in south Florida.
Excellent meal and wine. Pleasantly quiet even on a weekend. A nice palate cleanser between courses was included.
We love coming to Le Bistro and enjoy the food every time. Simply a wonderful location and friendly owners and staff.
It was “fine”; everything was “fine.” Just don’t think the value was there to make it a place we would visit often.
Had the opportunity to try this place during Crave Fort Lauderdale and so glad we did! Highly recommend the mushroom soup, Bee Pollen salad, wild mushroom risotto and the salmon. Save room for dessert.
Underwhelmed with crave menu. Most items on main course were 45. Not 35.and the menu said 39. Kind of misleading. Ford was good for the most part but nothing special. The steak Diane sauce tasted like the mushroom soup I ordered. Chocolate mousse was MEH
I have never had a bad meal at this restaurant- the food is beyond spectacular! Fresh baked bread, wonderful wine selection... I love Le Bistro!
had not so good experience. we (2 couples) seated near the walkway to kitchen. servers kept bumping into my chair asking me to "pull in" . should have been moved as restaurant was only75% full
also the meals: appetizers were excellent.
entrees: not so. my lamb was medium and a asked for rare. another had the fish (no salmon so they used snapper) but it too was over-cooked and dry. duck was good but lacked a flavorful sauce
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The atmosphere, food and service were outstanding.
Always incredible food and service! Love love love.
Would a got a 5 star if it wasn't for the rude server
Overwhelming positives- THE FOOD: mushroom soup, the cauliflower steak , the bouillabaisse, the creme brûlée were all delicious and beyond expectations. Prepared with expertise at an elevated level.
Negatives- very hot inside and repeated requests to waiter to lower AC did not result in a bearable environment for dinner. Eventually, a nice woman manager lowered it to make the temp comfortable to enjoy the food.
The bread was below par and below the otherwise elevated food experience.
Also, it was a busy night and our entree ticket got misplaced behind later arrivals. My entree of seared scallops appeared raw ( not translucent but raw and barely seared). I asked for them to. To be properly cooked and was told this is seared and how they cook them. When they returned from the kitchen the scallops were broken and the plating a mess... very unappetizing. I've had seared scallops at many fine restaurants and know how they should be prepared. I was unhappy with how this was handled and it marred a otherwise wonderful food experience.
However.... despite the scallops experience, try this restaurant for really great food , delicious ingredients expertly prepared, but you may want to wait til the cooler fall weather.
Only table - no other diners. That should have told us
Service and Food were outstanding
Mother's Day. Evening dinner. Restaurant not busy.6 tables. 2 waiters, neither seem to know much about "fine dining ". Food was good, not great, but good. Appetisers came fairly quickly, but after one and a half hours no sign of main course. We ordered Beef Wellington, so OK, 30 maybe 40 mins ( we ordered as soon as we walked in ) the reason we were given for the long delay was that 3 people had ordered the same thing? It's a restaurant! After we had finished main course dessert was bought and at the same time the check, now their in a hurry. Altogether a very unsatisfactory experience.
Great food and quiet, lovely ambiance!
A terrific dining experience. Attentive, friendly service, nice wine list and lots of variety on Menu. Enjoyed two different bottles of white wine. Mushroom soup starter fabulous. Rack of lamb delicious, tender and perfectly prepared as ordered. Bronzino fish delightful. Comped chocolate moose desert enjoyed by all. A small, quiet spot in a small strip center off US 1. Easy to miss but would be a shame. Wonderful place. Strongly recommend.
