It was a nice little dinner on the outside patio. The specialty drinks were great. We had the French Martini and the Lone Star Lady. The food...well, it was alright. I had a steak frite. It was cooked to a good medium, but it didn't taste like they had put any seasoning like salt or pepper on it. Good quality steak though. The fries were well seasoned, but with where they were on the plate, they got soggy, still good, but I guess I am more of a crispy fry person. My wife had the Bistro burger and said it was fantastic. I would come back. The service was good and it is a nice little spot.

Passerelle Bistro is my go to place when I want an elegant but casual lunch. The view of the Reedy River Falls and Park with towering trees that keep the patio cool even on a hot summer day is always a favorite. Great place to show off beautiful Greenville.

This was a fine restaurant. Good wine list. Fine food. Not fine dining. More Bistro French than fine French. Out door seating was excellent. I certainly recommend Passerelle Bistro.

We had a very lovely brunch on Sunday. Our server was excellent and overall our meal was extremely enjoyable. The crispy goat cheese appetizer was amazing! My only complaints would be that the indoor seating area is not very cool and that there was too much hollandaise on my eggs Benedict, otherwise it was great.

We were extremely disappointed in this bistro. We could not get in the one restroom in th bistro and had to find the public restroom. Some patron had set up office on the patio. The Niçoise salad was not at all what a true French nicoise salad should be even though they claimed it was French. Very pricey! A lunch salad and one appetizer plus tip cost $40.

Location excellent; food mediocre at best. For example -- Croque Monsieur's ham was most probably presliced city ham; not very "French" at all.

I’ve eaten lunch at Passerelle Bistro several times and loved the food. I took my son there last night for his birthday dinner. We both ordered sword fish. I thought the fish was a bit dry and just had a bland taste. I know to just order something different next time.

Its just a great setting for a quiet dinner with someone. You're able to talk comfortably without having to talk over noise when outside. The service is attentive but not intrusive. The food is good and the menu is simple enough that its easy to decide what to have. The sorbet was a nice finish and sized well for sharing.

The location was terrific, we sat outside overlooking the park. Our server, Judy I think, was very good, competent and full of smiles and good cheer. The food was reasonable value considering the location but too salty for our taste. Having said that we are light salt users. The seats were a little hard and small, especially if you have back problems. Context for this: we are 80!

Beautiful setting. Server was friendly and kind, but took awhile to get our food. Lentil salad was excellent but with the additional protein ( shrimp ) was pricey. It seemed they forgot the shaved cheese for the top as well, but since we had a limited lunch break time we didn’t say anything . Probably best to go if you are looking for a leisurely pace.

Passerelle Bistro serves great food with a beautiful outdoor seating area. I got the fried goat cheese for a unique sweet and savory starter, and it was absolutely fantastic. The ham and gruyere omelette was delicious, but my lunch date had the "grilled cheese" and tomato fondue and that was out of this world! Service was attentive and let us take our time to enjoy the atmosphere. An absolutely WONDERFUL experience.
