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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

Don’t be fooled by the facade of this restaurant, it’s nothing fancy from the outside but inside the food is fabulous. The menu had so many wonderful options. The presentation of each dish was beautiful. The staff is friendly and personable. I am a big fan of Beef Wellington, I’ve been all over the country trying to find a good one, I found the best Beef Wellington right here in Deerfield Beach, honestly, so perfectly cooked, high quality filet, there were no leftovers. The house made desserts did not disappoint. I’m surprised that there were no lines out the door, this is a quiet and quaint restaurant with a long history. I’m looking forward to returning.

We had a fabulous dinner here on our way back from a shopping excursion to Miami. We ordered the cauliflower steak appetizer and Steak Diane entry. They were both delicious. The wait staff was attentive and very helpful. Don't let the modest exterior fool you. I highly recommend dining here if you have the opportunity.
