    Le Bistro is a fabulous operation. Local and the husband / wife team work very hard to ensure a pleasant experience. All of the dishes are fantastic. The menu changes with the chef's whim, with interesting plays on bistro staple recipes. Escargot is perfect. The wine list runs the spectrum from affordable to the... not so affordable.

    1st, it’s in a plaza strip but that we knew already. There were 2 couples there finishing up and raving about the food. They were locals and often visited. Once they left it was just my husband and I which could be romantic but was a little Awkward. The owner was the hostess, waitress along with her husband which was the chef. We talked throughout the meal about where we were from and about local produce they grew and what we grow and about food. It was pleasant and friendly. The food was what I expected from a good chef that was on Hell’s Kitchen way back when! We were celebrating our anniversary so they had brought us a special mango dessert which was nice and tasty. We had a very nice dinner, felt intimate being the two of us there and only the owners. It would be a nice place to update with the decor and I wish the owner/chef came out to say hello and we could have expressed our appreciation for the food. Overall it is a place with great food, cooked to perfection and has been there for over 20 years so they are doing something right! We hope to make it back again soon to support a great business and enjoy wonderful meals❤️

    First timers we accidentally found you on OpenTable. We came a distance from Plantation because we love French cuisine. Service excellent! Food absolutely amazing! You’re now on our rotating list. My husband keeps saying “that was the best meal he ever ate”. I’ve heard that at least ten times. Mushroom soup a must have, I had au poive like being in Paris, and my husband had the lamb chops “best ever”.

    Food was extremely good, while remaining accessible, and dishes were presented very nicely. Service was attentive without being obtrusive - something that’s hard to achieve with only one occupied table (ours) in the whole restaurant. And the bill was not unreasonable for these inflationary times. Unclear quite why it was so empty. We’d return despite the quiet, and I’d recommend you try it too.

    The food was awesome fresh and hot. Service was great. We went on a low key evening Wednesday. I can see where parking could be difficult but that evening three spaces were saved for patrons right out front. We thought the corkage fee was high at $35 as most restaurants are $20-25. I believe we will be back.

    All our dishes were exquisite - first we had some appies - crab cake, 1/2 portion of the mushroom risotto and the beet & bee pollen crusted goat cheese. Just delicious. Then as entrees, we ordered the petite filet mignon au poivre, roast rack of lamb, and east coast bouillabaisse. Loved every bite and we highly recommend le bistro in Lighthouse Point!

    My husband and I have been dining at Le Bistro over many years. The food is delicious. No matter what we have ordered, we have never been disappointed. Service is efficient and informative. Yes it is expensive but when food of this quality is made to order you should expect to pay more. In short, this is not your average restaurant. This is a dining experience.

    A very small and intimate French restaurant. The staff were very friendly and efficient. Food and service is very good. We enjoyed an escargot appetizer, the special a flounder and a petite filet. All were delicious. It is small so if they are busy, it can be noisy but we enjoy the dining and recommend.

    Our meals and service were excellent, but be prepared for the high prices. They are very helpful for Celiac gluten free and sodium restrictions, if needed. Although their menu has several delicious sounding meat dishes, our sea bass and sauce were done to perfection and quite flavorful. Their desserts were delicious, the crème brûlée was amazing and gluten free. Profiteroles with ice cream and apple tart were also amazing. Go and enjoy a memorable evening.

I had a roasted cauliflower appetizer and my husband had the onion soup. I had Chilean sea bass an my husband enjoyed the surf and turf. Apple tart for dessert topped off a wonderful meal. The service was good! It was a nice hidden gem.

    Exceptional boutique French bistro tucked away in small strip center in Pompano Beach. A real gem. If you live in Boca or Delray it's well worth getting out of your local box for this one. It's like a mini visit to Rive Gauche.

    Our waitperson was lovely. The bread and butter, outstanding. The mushroom soup was tasty - could have been hotter. My risotto w mushrooms could have been cooked a little longer. My friend ordered the sole and, realized (that lovely bottle of wine will do it every time) she was served the halibut! The accompanying veggies were quite good. We ordered the apple tart tatin. It was not good. Apples hard - crust burnt. But, we did have a lovely time!! That bottle of wine and, good company, go a long way!!

    My wife and I wanted a nice romantic gluten free dinner for our first night in Pompano Beach. The food was amazing and made and served by a caring husband/wife team. She had mushroom soup with a wonderful rack of lamb cooked to perfection. I had escargot followed by the perfect mushroom risotto. I nice surprise was the flavorful palate cleanser served between courses. Add a great bottle of Merlot followed by a cheese board and crème brûlée for dessert. the perfect dining experience! Also some beautiful art throughout the restaurant.

    Cute place. Outside seating which we prefer. Miscommunication with waitress ended with me eating Mushroom soup not the mushroom risotto I ordered. It was yummy so didn’t feel like ordering anything else. My friends steak was cooked perfectly also enjoyed the cauliflower steak appetizer. Felt like wait staff was kind of hovering. Timing a little off. Overall good & would go back when in that area.
