This was our first trip to Greenville and we were so amazed by how beautiful the river park was and all the restaurants that are on Main st. So, it turned out Passerelle’s is in one of the most scenic spots of all, just next to the falls. Our hostess and food turned out to be excellent, but our server took our order, brought us food and a check. So, needless to say service was under par.

As charming as it appeared it was disappointing to sit outdoors in an attempt to dine alfresco. There were too many annoying flies and sadly no deterrent was in place. The menu is very limited. The lamb shank was tasteless but the kale was very good. The Mgr offered to have the kitchen make me the steak which was nice of them. I ordered med rare but it came to the table rare. I loved my French martini and salad but the food was a bit disappointing. I “may” try again...or just enjoy that martini again!

Beautiful setting with a view of the falls and twinkle lights overhead--we did an intimate dinner there for a friend's birthday. Food was good overall; no unique 5-star dishes, this was standard French bistro fare, but everything was well prepared and tasty.

I was expecting a bit more from the burger. It look like processed, frozen meat and it wasn't close to being medium rare like I ordered it. I was expecting a steakhouse burger made from fresh ground beef but it looked like Wendys. I'll go again but I'll order something else for sure. My wife had the Lamb and it was delicious. I know they can make good food but they missed their mark on the burger. They weren't busy and it was a Tuesday evening. Service was excellent, atmosphere was perfect for a date.

Food is superb and the service is great. We wanted a table overlooking Reddy Falls but there was no available. But when a couple left and we asked if we could move to their table, the hostess graciously moved us. We had seared trout and it was excellent. Lemon creme brulee and coconut white cake were so good. I love this bistro!

Passerelle Bistro is one of our favorite lunch spots. Always excellent food and service. We were seated on the patio but it was still too hot, even under a tree. Our server whose name I do not recall quickly and pleasantly moved us inside and air conditioning. My friend had one of her favorites, the Salad Nicoise with perfectly seared tuna. I had an excellent yellow fin tuna salad on croissant with a fresh, green salad. You will be very happy with any item you choose.

Nice outdoor seating, unless it is too hot. Great views. Small menu, but my husband loved his lamb shank. I had salad Niciose, which was quite good. I like cooked tuna, and they were happy to cook it vs semi raw. OK and a bit pricey wine list...could use a revamp. This is the second time we have eaten here, so obviously we like it.

Outdoor seating was perfect for a summer evening and the view of the Falls for my out of town guest was wonderful. We both had the trout and finished every piece on our plate. It was very good. Service was good and we were not rushed. I was early and was even able to sit outside and enjoy a glass of wine beforehand. This is one of our favorite restaurants in Greenville.

The food was fine, but I'd say not great for the price. Service was friendly and also just fine. The real reason to come here is for the view of the waterfall. I'd suggest ordering some small plates and a beer or a bottle of wine and looking at the waterfall, rather than doing a full-on meal here.

Overall this is probably my favorite restaurant in Greenville... sitting outside by the Falls. (We usually bring our dog, and they always bring a dish of water for her.) The food choices are different every time we come, and I've not been disappointed with any of my meals. The wait staff is always friendly, HOWEVER the service can be pretty slow, so be prepared to sit awhile. If you're in a hurry for a quick lunch I would not eat here, but if you have the time to relax, enjoy the view, and whatever company you're with I highly recommend La Passerelle!

pleasantly surprised. The food was very good, I had the steak frites (a strangely difficult dish to get nicely done) which was very good. The next time I'm in Greenville, I will be going back just for the steak frites. My daughter had the ratatouille and my wife had the trout. Both were very good. My only complaint, and a very minor one, was the service. Our waiter seemed a bit distant and did not respond quickly.

Bathroom out of service - asked to use public restroom which after the arts festival which had been going on that weekend was literally unusable. Food not consistently attractively plated.

The food was good but menu selections were minimal. On this night, they were out of items that cut the menu down to a few selections. The service was not good. After an hour sitting at our table, the waitress asked if we wanted dessert when we had not even received our entrees. No apologies from her. Sitting outside, we were right beside the public restrooms which generated a lot of foot traffic. Very disappointed.

We came for brunch there day before Mother's Day. Great location with outdoor seating where you can watch the waterfall and people enjoying the park. Food was good, great croissants! Service was lacking. We had a reservation with requested a high chair but after waiting for 10 minutes and asking 3 different people, my husband had to go find one. Service was very slow. Server was polite but inattentive. Had to flag her down for water (she was supposed to leave a carafe on the table), didn't tell us the specials or soup/omelette du jour, went long periods without seeing her and had to flag her down again 10 or 15 minutes after finishing dessert to ask for our check. But the food and atmosphere were enough that I plan to give this place another try.
