The food was tasty and there were nice food choices. We got a great local brew (Ashville). We sat outside and the ambience was wonderful and the noise level was barely noticeable. Our server was attentive. The coconut cake for dessert was delicious. I recommend eating here.

Everything about this restaurant was surprisingly incredible! I went in expecting a mediocre service, with Americanized French foods. However, I received a wonderful array of foods just like I remember in France, super friendly and down to earth service, and a drink list that exceeded what I was expecting!

Dininer menu was limited and uninspiring for price. Lunch menu better value.
When the weather is good, great scenery for outside dining. Great for visitor dining if in the budget.
Wait staff very pleasant.

Passerelle is one of my favorite outdoor dining spots in Greenville. This evening, I got there during the changing of the shift...so I was quite disappointed in the lack of service - at first... The hostess was wonderful and the manager (Jerry) was terrific. He noticed that I was unhappy and took care of my drink for me. After everything settled down - the service was (again) very good. The food is always good here, I never had a bad . The chocolate mouse was the BEST that I had ever tasted.

I’ve been before. It’s always very smoky inside from the kitchen. I usually eat outside when I go but it was too chilly to eat outside. This smoke has been an issue for over two years. That needs to be fixed.

I had a wonderful time. Even though it was still lunch time they let me order escargot. I had the wonderful beet salad with the escargot and a beautiful glass of wine. Since I was splurging I also had the coconut cake. I beautiful day to eat outside and enjoy the music and scenery.

This past Sunday morning, brunch service was very slow. The two people that had omelets had running yoke on the inside. One person asked for toast after she received her meal and it finally arrived just before the bill. The person who had the burger was really satisfied as was the one who had the Benedict. I have been here many times and have been completely satisfied. This visit was not one of them.

From the coffee & croissants, to our server Sarah, who was very attentive and pleasant, it was a joy to cap off a lazy Sunday brunch. And being dog-friendly only added to the memorable day spent with loved ones. We will be back.

Food was awesome. We ordered trout, ratatouille, steak and frites, and then petite salad with the charcuterie plate. Portions were very inconsistent (one entree huge, another tiny, one small plate larger than entire entree). All was delicious, just maybe ask them how much you’ll get depending on how hungry you are. Service was okay, not very personable, but not bad. Love the decor and style of the place, the tiny tiles are so cute.

In a city full of "Southern Fare" and burgers at every turn it's nice to see that a French (perhaps not totally authentic) restaurant is doing business successfully in the area. I just got back from Paris last week and the lamb shank, although not on par with what I had over there, was very good. The shrimp and scallop appetizer was excellent! Chateauneuf-du-Pape on the wine list. You can't go wrong here.

My friend and I spent 4 days in Greenville and without a doubt our favorite restaurant for food and ambiance was Passerelle Bistro. After dining at Husk the evening before, and paying substantially more (which we don't mind if it's worth it), we were so happy to return here for the 2nd time. We had lunch our first day and ended with a wonderful brunch when we departed on Sunday. Chris, our wait person, was super friendly and accommodating. The tuna salad croissant, which they make fresh in-house, was outstanding. The omelets and salads were also excellent. If we're ever back in Greenville, we'll go back for sure!

I'm not from Greenville, but I certainly make a point to go to Passerelle each time I come to town. The location next to the park and bridge is beautiful. Good people watching on the weekend. Try the croque monsieur!

A favorite of ours, and a credit to Greenville. Set in Falls Park, the Bistro serves classic French cooking with flavors that are hard to match. Our mussels and escargot appetizers were near perfect. Two of us had the fish, and two had chicken. All four dishes were perfectly thought out and served. You need to go to see what this chef’s magic can do.

The dinner was very good. The quality of food was very good. We enjoyed our meal. Server forgot my drink but she brought me a drink on the house so that was handled very well. They brought my husband complimentary dessert for his birthday that was nice. It was a dead night so we had the inside restaurant to ourselves, and very quiet. The inside is fun with cafe lighting. We would try this place again. The menu was interesting with other things we would like to try.

Because outside seating was full, we ate inside and still we enjoyed our Saturday lunch salade niçoise, croque monsieur and 2 omelet specials of the day. I like Passerelle very much, especially because of the location/view.

Very loud. Didn’t do very well in regards to incorporating French style foods and taste. The ambience was mediocre. Waitresses were GREAT. Couldn’t ask more for them. My food came out lukewarm. Creme Brûlée was excellent, needed a little warmth too it tho. Fish was adequate but once again, the French style taste was not there. To claim it is a French Restaurant is not the smartest thing to do. It’s more of an over priced American restaurant. Once again though, servers were excellent.

Everything about our visit was just "OK." and nothing to write home about. I think we will return once the weather improves and the outdoor seating is fully opened. We ordered from the Restaurant Week menu and although the muscles are always good, the other items we had were bland. The choice of music playing (modern rock/pop) and the basketball game on the tv really through off the ambiance I was hoping for on a date to a French restaurant.
