With the craziness that is going on in this world it was lovely to have a staff meeting outside over lunch at Passarrele. Food was delicious, ambience perfect even with a few sprinkles.
Always love this restaurant and will be sure to return again soon.

Our Service was excellent...! Very nice Wine And Beer Menu...! And, Wow, great views of the Park and the Falls... what more could you ask for...?

This was a beautiful place to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We loved the French cuisine, and the ample, open-air seating overlooking the beautiful waterfall.

We ordered different items and shared. We thought the creme brulee was much better than the chocolate torte -- although the torte would have been fine if we had not had the brulee for comparison.

Since the bistro does not have its own parking lot and we are not very familiar with downtown Greenville, figuring out where to park was a little confusing, but there are plenty of parking lots within a reasonable walking distance.

Best place to eat on a hot day outside. There seems to always be a breeze and you can see the river and it is very shady. We try to always eat outside now and this is one of our go to places. Love the service and the food is amazing as well. Just wish they would offer the Quiche a bit more often... but if that is my only complaint, that is just fine!

We had only been to Passerelle for dessert but since they have outdoor seating and it was a nice evening, we decided to give it a shot for dinner.

We weren't disappointed. The menu wasn't huge but offered a nice variety and the wine list is extensive. We happened to be there during "restaurant week" in Greenville - 3 courses for $30 - which was a great value given the quality of the food. Not sure if this is an every Friday thing, but all bottles of wine were $10 off, which was another nice surprise.

I had bouillabaisse, my wife steak frites and our daughter the vegan plate - and everyone was happy. Desserts were huge and tasty, and the service and view of the falls on the Reedy River were as good as the food.

We'll definitely be going back.

Congrats on reopening after the Vid hit. This is my first time here so I'm not sure if the menu is the same it was before the pandemic closure. In any case, I must say it was the best burger I've had! I, for one, like a burger that is more than just the meat. So, in true French style, this burger was loaded with yummy toppings making it more than just a burger. Some burger purists might not like that. Others at my table had the veggie place and the steak. Both of them loved the flavors and sauces. We sat outside and the view was awesome as was the service. I highly recommend!

A quick day trip to drop off a piece of stereo equipment for repair in Taylors, SC was the perfect excuse to take the short drive to Greenville and enjoy lunch on the Reedy River. Our daughter was an inaugural student for the new campus of the SC Governors School for the Arts in 2000 before the revitalization of the area. It was beautiful then in its natural beauty, but it is even more beautiful now. A perfect spot for lunch! We are so glad we chose Passerelle as our lunch spot. We ate outside, which overlooks the River. It was a hot day, but the area is shady and there was just enough breeze to make for a very pleasant atmosphere. We chose the Croque Monsuier and the Angus steak burger. Both came with frites. The sandwiches were both delicious. My husband's burger was medium rare, just as he requested. The frites were crisp, but tender inside with a yummy dipping sauce (as well as ketchup). I had a 9 oz. pour of Chardonnay at $13, which I thought was a little high, but it was cold and refreshing on a hot day. Our server was Whitney, who was both friendly and efficient. We will definitely go back. The weekend brunch sounds divine, and the perfect excuse for another day trip - maybe when the weather is cooler!

The acoustics were terrible or something ( and we were social distancing ) so... there wasn't even a full room. I felt like the group of people seated near us were yelling it was so terrible. Lastly it was uncomfortably warm inside the restaurant. We will not be back.
