Disappointed. Bland ( not fresh)burger, blah salad with tasteless shrimp , and the mushy fruit was unappealing . On a positive , fries were crispy and mussels were tasty. Service was slow and inconsistent. Not worth the $ at all . We had reservations for inside but were seated outside .

We had lunch outside on the patio with view of the river. Lovely setting. Patio surrounded by large trees which adds to the ambiance as do the red umbrellas. Authentic French bistro fare. Fine dining in a relaxed way. Nice wine list. Highly recommend. Favorite spot for lunch.

Ordered mussels, they had strong order when served.
Thought it might be the saffron. Tried one and seemed okay. Mussels were extremely small. Upon opening several, they were not developed and empty. Informed server and she was going to speak with manager about it. Did not here back from anyone.
Sat inside due to heat and room lacked atmosphere.
Would not recommend or will go back to.

I give the bistro a good rating because the outdoor atmosphere was lovely. We were able to sit under an umbrella and experience the wonderful summer breezes while listening to the sound of the nearby waterfall. Our server was attentive and helpful. Overall, however, I thought the food was just OK. There were 4 of us dining and only one of us thought that their dish was above average. We looked inside at the dining space and I would say that it looked a bit crowded and small. I will return here and recommend the restaurant for the experience of the scenic outdoor dining and just be satisfied with the quality of the food. It's a nice place to enjoy a glass or bottle of wine and perhaps a few small plates.

Have been here many times. The menu had changed and was lacking. This could be due to Covid so I not counting that against the restaurant at this time. I can’t say enough about the service, especially Darci. She is amazing. She was our waitress in Saturday night for dinner and Sunday brunch. I can not wait to go back.

Hi Rogers! Thank you for your review and thank you for understanding the reason behind our limited menu.

My boyfriend and I LOVED this restaurant and will definitely be eating here again. I would recommend making a reservation, we tried eating here once before as a walk in but it was a crazy long wait. With a reservation we got our beautiful outside table no problem. The location couldn’t be more ideal, right by the gorgeous city park, and the food was outstanding. We got the crusty bread as an appetizer, and it was perfectly toasted and flavorful along with the radish/fennel conserva. My only complaint is that for the price, I would’ve like a bit more of everything, it only came with 4 small pieces of bread and we definitely could’ve used more of the conserva. For my main dish, I got the vegetarian plate and holy cow was it delicious. I’m vegan and often find that restaurants will phone in their vegetarian/vegan dish. More often than not it’s a veggie burger or a veggie stir fry over rice. Not this one. The portion size was generous, the pesto fantastic, and the artichokes were perfect. I would go back to Passerelle Bistro simply for the vegetarian dish. My boyfriend ordered the trout and while he enjoyed his meal, he said he’s ordering what I had next time because it was even better than the trout. Will absolutely be eating here again!

I have been coming to this restaurant for some time and the food is always very good. This visit it was a bit different. My husband ordered steak with potatoes and eggs. The steak was overcooked and he had to send the meal back to get some potatoes with his pile of onions and peppers. When he asked the young man that brought it - somewhat facetiously - where were the potatoes, he replied, oh under there... pointing to the massive pile of veggies. LOL. Well the menu read "potatoes" and not a pile of onion and peppers. But they corrected this at least. Also, they said they were out of Sprite to make my favorite White Sangria. Please go buy some Sprite... But I will of course give it another chance since the food IS normally good and the best view in town!
