Food was very good, although one dish was undercooked and sent back, came back fine. My dish was overcooked but I did not send it back, still very good. Restaurant was (literally) empty from the time we got there untill we left and service was solicitous but slow, so can’t imagine if crowded. Desert came out inedible. Server adroitly removed it from the table, and off the bill, and brought another at no charge which was superb. Lots of conflicts here (did I mention it was empty.) All-in-all this is a fine restaurant, that said it is way over priced for the food and location (maybe that’s why it was empty.) Dinner for two was $225 with 1 glass of wine. Can’t justify that with so many other excellent options in the area.

As usual we found the dinner to be extraordinary and the service to be outstanding. The portions were large and the quality was spectacular. So many gluten free options that it was hard to choose. The lamb was perfectly cooked!

Lovely dinner on a rainy night in this small, cozy restaurant. From beginning to end every dish hit the mark. The chef/owner came by to make sure we were happy, a nice touch. Our servers were outstanding, there when we needed them and unobtrusive when we didn't. All four of us enjoyed the experience and plan to return. Definitely recommend.

I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner at Le Bistro. I felt comfortable dining on my own and very relaxed. The food at Le Bistro is very flavorful and the portions are ample. Service is friendly, professional and non-obtrusive. Thank you for a wonderful solo dining experience. I will return soon with family, friends and business associates.

The personalized service, and delicious food was exactly what we hoped for our anniversary.

The grass fed rack of lamb was the best we’ve ever had, the petit filet was delicious. The flavors were unbelievable and the service impeccable.

Worth the trip from anywhere in Broward for sure! A little pricey, but you get what you pay for. And Le Bistro will not disappoint. This is a quiet, romantic, French bistro with personal attention to every detail, and a fantastic staff! Thank you Ellen for making our experience so special.

What a find, although it has been there for over 15 years , the restaurant is using locally sourced ingredients, and the menu changes often. The food has a French flair and and because they wish to honor Florida produce , it is fresh and worth a visit.

 (Chicago)·Dined on March 5, 2017

Just flew in from Chicago and was looking for a nice meal before delving into business. What a surprising find Le Bistro was! The server, Kyle, was very friendly and made some great recommendations. I was eventually introduced to the proprietors, Chef Andy and his wife Elin. They were incredibly welcoming, friendly and cordial. About the food ... I started with the Charcuterie & Cheese plate. It had delicious prosciutto and an Iberico chorizo that was surprisingly flavorful without being too spicy. The assortment of cheeses was fabulous and complimented the wine perfectly. I had the Braised Oxtail Pappardelle Special of the Day and, since they were in season and recommended by the server, added the truffles to the dish. This was heavenly! So savory and delicious, I thought it had to be illegal!! They also have a version of the braised oxtail on their regular menu and, if they don't have the special, I would highly recommend the regular version. The wine list is very accessible and has something for everyone. Having just traveled to Bordeaux this past June, I had to indulge. For dessert, a brownie beignet, which was a delicious partner for the last sips of my wine. Overall, I can't recommend this restaurant strongly enough. If you are in the area (I drove the 1/2 hr from the Ft. Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach -- and it was well worth the trip!), don't miss it. I can't wait to go back and try more of the menu.

 (Miami)·Dined on February 25, 2017

The food is good, but no more. While the price of meals is up to a gourmet restaurant, that is not her case. I could have paid half the price for the filet mignon that I took, in a quality steak house. Moreover, it is the first restaurant I meet which serves the main food without any accompaniment. I ordered a filet mignon. To have potatoes, I had to pay a surplus, because not included. There is a good choice of wine. But, again, the same quality is found for cheaper elsewhere. Appraisal: I will never go back. Ho! French restaurant and nobody speak french.
La nourriture est très bien, mais pas plus. Alors que le prix des repas est à la hauteur d'un restaurant gastronomique. Ce n'est pas son cas. J'aurais pu payer la moitié moins cher pour le filet mignon que j'ai pris, dans un steak house de qualité. De plus, c'est le premier restaurant que je rencontre qui sert l'aliment principal sans aucun accompagnement. J'ai commandé un filet mignon. Pour avoir des pommes de terre, j'ai dû payer un surplus, car non inclus. Il-y-a un bon choix de vin. Mais, encore là, on trouve la même qualité pour moins cher ailleur. Bilan : Je n'y retournerai jamais. Ils ne connaissent pas plus la gastronomie française que la langue.

my Uncle and I drove down from Boca for a change of scene and it is a Nice neighborhood Restaurant. The service and food was exemplary . We were unfortunately the only Guests in the Restaurant . We both had Mushroom soup ,a petit filet steak ,the fish of the day which was Cod fish and one shared desert . The quality and taste of all dishes was excellent. The only negative was the emptiness of the Restaurant and perhaps the owners need to relook at their pricing as a possible reason. We found it very expensive on a par with the top Boca Restaurants and could be a disincentive for many except for special occasions. Its unfortunate as the Owner and his wife were both friendly and very accommodating .

What a nice surprise! This little neighborhood gem is a great find for French cuisine. The mushroom soup was to die for - yummy. Then we had steak Diane and pepper steak each served with delicious sauces. The other diners at our table had the fish special of the day and said that was cooked to perfection as well. This is a great find that I highly recommend.

Went for Valentine's anniversary and enjoyed it. However, tables are very close and once it filled up I felt like we were with the people next to us. It wasn't conducive to talking or romance. Food is very good but pricey. I ordered filet and it was on menu as rare and roasted. I asked if I could get it medium well and was told yes. However, it was quite pink, so I didn't get what I wanted. Service was great except for entrée - took a while. Very friendly, glad there was a man directing in the parking lot, that helped.
