When you have single glass wines on your wine list and you would like to taste before you buy and the answer you get is "the bottle isn't open yet so you can't try it", is a problem.

It would have nice to know that the appetizer crab special was fried. Had we been told we wouldn't have ordered it.

Overpriced restaurant with a nice atmosphere, but very disappointed in our first experience, given how long le bistro has been open.

The restaurant was empty, as in no one else at 8pm. The reason was "everyone was watching the Democratic debate". Really!!!!

Thank you for your patronage. The requested wines were sampled. Not practical for us to open multiple wine bottles for tasting during off season. Seasonal soft shell crab was classically prepared. Steak Diane, Hand-cut fries, the very best steelhead trout, plates were licked! Our prices are fair compared to similar boutique restaurants that prepare and serve top quality products. Chit chat joke made about quiet night and televised debate. Please try us for our special dining promotion Aug/Sept

Small space which was exceedingly quiet on a Thursday night. Friendly and efficient service. Nice menu—traditional French with an even-handed flair—no too fussy or pretentious. Mushroom soup was absolutely “to die for”. Everyone left satisfied and happy. Highly recommended, will definitely return.

I had made the reservation for 8:30, we were running late so I called the restaurant to let them know. I got a friendly response “no problem”. Earlier in the day I called to check if they have soufflé for desert, I spoke with a lovely lady and she told me they might be able to make us a chocolate soufflé. I ordered the lamb chops, they were good (not great). My husband ordered the steak special, it was ok but tiny and very thin for the price. We didn’t think that the soufflé was an option at this time, so we ordered the apple pastry with ice cream (sorry I don’t remember the actual name for it). To our surprise, I believe it was Elin the owner that came to our table and told us the chef is making us the chocolate soufflé. She remembered! Wow.. how wonderful!! The soufflé was delicious and made up for the meal being.. well, not what we expected. I would definitely like to give LeBistro another try.

We were introduced to Le Bistro by my daughter who has dined at their Passover Seder for the past few years.
It was everything she said it would be and more. From the Seder plate through the entire feast a definite 5* experience.
We will definitely return for dinner with our friends. Thank you for a beautifully presented meal.

My husband and I just celebrated our most perfect anniversary here. The food was fresh and amazing. The staff are so friendly and accommodating. The best part (other than the amazing risotto, lamb and soup we have EVER had)was Chef Andy! He is truly in love with food as much as we are. He came to our table and chatted with us after desert, that will leave us forever coming back to this hidden gem of a restaurant.
If you have never been to Le Bistro you are missing out on one of the best hidden gems in South Florida!
Hands down the best experience we have had!!!!
This is a MUST dinning for any occasion!
We are already planning multiple birthdays and special occasions for the future!

Thank you
Chef Andy for making tonight a night to remember 😘😘😘😘😘😘

This little restaurant is low key and charming inside. The staff were all warm, welcoming and very attentive. When making our reservation I had left a comment about some food restrictions. I very much appreciated the call I received the day before our dinner to go over what would be available. Additionally, the kitchen was very happy to accommodate some slight adjustments to our order. The mushroom soup was excellent. I had the grouper special, which was very good, but not exceptional. That may be because grouper itself is not generally wonderful, but my fish was cooked and presented perfectly. Dessert was also very good - banana custard, recommended by our very friendly and helpful waitress, was like a light bread pudding, and very pleasant. The apple tart, similarly was very good. Overall, we enjoyed the meal, loved the friendly atmosphere and appreciated the service, though we did think it a bit pricey. Despite that - we would go again!

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

Elin and Andy. I have eaten at your restaurant many times before tonight. Unfortunately, even though I made a reservation, I was unable to dine, due to a nonexistent staff. We arrived at 7:27 for a 7:30 reservation. We were offered water. At 7:54 I approached the dark haired bearded man, I won’t call him a waiter, as he did not wait on us. When I asked him what the problem was, he screamed at me that he was busy. Unbelievable
Andy, I have eaten your great food many times over the past few years, but if you don’t have great people upfront, you will fail. Profoundly disappointing,
Dr. Timothy S. Benoit.
Fortunately our night was rescued at Cafe Maxx, without a reservation and immediate service. What you did to my wife and tonight was wrong.

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.

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.
