Dropped in for a convenient meal near my hotel. Nice location at the myth of the waterfall park. Started sprinkling on my outdoor experience but they had table umbrellas so I could stay outside.
Simple menu. Nice presentations. Nice service. Good for both casual and casual + dining.

Passarelle is one of our favorite spots for outdoor dining with kids. They are always so welcoming and bring crayons and coloring pages and are so kind to the kids. It’s a great combo to be able to have a wonderful dinner and happy kids at the same time!

We’ve lived in Greenville for 7 yrs, this was our 1st to passerelle and our visit was as rumored. Amazing location by “the footbridge”, better than average attentive service and less than tolerable food. Passerelle does not strive for technically complex preparations, which is good, it is not wanted. What is wanted is the classic bistro dishes executed very well at a fair price. Neither were achieved, not even close. Omlete, croque monsieur, Niçoise salad, lentil salad were frankly w/o seasoning which was not replaced by fresh product but mediocre preparation with no balance. Sorry passerelle you’ve been doing this, from my understanding, a long time. Your lucky to have “the footbridge”………

I ate here twice while visiting Greenville: once for lunch and once for dinner. The location is fabulous, and I loved the outdoor dining area. They were also very accommodating when it came to my dog. The food was excellent! I’m vegan and the menu had options for me. The vegetable plate I had for dinner was delicious, as was the crusty bread and sorbet w/berries for dessert. The service was friendly and helpful. The rest of the menu looked wonderful as well, for non-vegans. I definitely recommend this place to anyone, and if I return to Greenville I will dine there again.

Location and view are fantastic. Food and service are mediocre. Prices are high for the quality of the food. Steak arrived cold and there were discrepancies on our bill. The manager happily resolved them but we were overall underwhelmed with the dining experience.

Gorgeous little bistro sitting outside at Falls Reedy Park in Greenville, very serene hearing the waterfall cascade. Food very good. Highly recommend this. Ate Sunday brunch, and very popular, so make reservations early for a delightful brunch.

We came for Saturday brunch before seeing a Hadestown matinee at The Peace Center. We are parents of 3 and don’t get out much 😂. Food and drinks were delicious and our server (think her name was Janice?) was spot on. Love the $5 mimosa / Bloody Mary deal. A tiny comment would be the clash in noise between the speakers inside and the street performer outside (obviously out of the restaurant’s control). Not a big deal though. We will be back!

The server was so nice and we had great conversation. The food, however, was lacking quite a bit. The steak was undercooked, the swordfish had no flavor, and the beans were undercooked as well. The frites with remoulade were nice though.

We dined outdoors on a very pleasant evening. The food was great, the service was great and the ambiance was enjoyable. The is is a busy area, but the nearby plants and trees make it so you feel nicely separated from folks passing by.

Another lovely dinner at Passerelle Bistro. Our entrees were tasty but the scallops were the highlight of the meal; they were deliciously seasoned and delicately prepared. Our server was attentive and professional, which is even more appreciated in this time of restaurants being so short handed. And of course with the French style outdoor bistro located beside the beautiful Falls Park, one could imagine they were in Paris.

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.
