Two of us had ordered salads for a starter. While we were still eating them, the entrees were brought out and quickly put in front of us. I had ordered the steak and it was extremely over cooked and tough. I sent it back and had to wait for another to be cooked. Our server was very kind and did his best to accommodate us. Such a shame our experience wasn’t great because we were excited to try it. It’s such a cute place and could really be someplace special with a little better organization.

This was a terrible experience. If the weather is nice so you can sit outside... do so. Otherwise, avoid this place. Sitting inside was like being at a rock concert, it was so loud. And, we were seated next to the aisle where waitstaff were continuously coming and going. We also had the view of the near empty dessert cooler and the wait station where a server wrapped silverware touching all of the knives and forks being wrapped in a dinner napkin... terrible!!!! After waiting 25-30 minutes for our food, while watching people around us (seated 15 minutes after us) receive their orders, and having our waitress say, "yours is up next" (it was not), we said ENOUGH. Heading for the door (40 minutes into this) we heard, "wait!! your food is coming". We left. I CAN NOT recommend this place. I'm sure the outside seating is nice with a view of the falls... but is it worth it? There are many excellent restaurants in this city. You don't have to do this to yourself. Go elsewhere.

The Menu Choices and Cuisine were very eclectic and delicious. I highly recommend the Bouillabaisse and Nicoise Tuna Salad. Enjoy with a bottle of Les Costes Cote du Rhone Blanc, a rarity.

Food was good, though my order was wrong. We had reservations inside at 12:30. Walked in at 12:32 and they gave the last inside table to a walk-in. Ok, so we sat outside in the cold. Our server took about 15 minutes to greet us and literally said “you ready to order?” Drinks took 10 minutes at least and we didn’t get our food until 1:30. And then it was wrong and some was cold. We sent back the kids pasta for being cold and indelible and then still saw it on the check. (It was later removed.)

Outstanding service and food. We were there for brunch on a saturday morning and sat near the falls. The view and ambience added to the experience. If you go for brunch, you must try the crispy goat cheese!

Our experience was not good. Place is over rated. Service was horrible. The best part about our visit had nothing to do with the restaurant and everything to do with its location and and the park views. We left very disappointed.

Passerelle Bistro is one of the most beautiful settings in Greenville. I always choose patio seating when I can. The food is consistently good and the staff are genuinely happy you’re there. My favorite spot for downtown lunch! Or Sunday brunch!!

Lovely patio dining. Small limited menu.
Food was good. Service was good.
I was supposed to receive a pickle with my burger and did not. That's obviously not a deal breaker. The burger was fantastic as was the goat cheese fritter!
The teamwork was awesome. The manager was fantastic running food like crazy! We really enjoyed our ladies luncheon and will definitely be back. I would like to see a few extra items added or some daily features. Please!

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.

The Crogue Monsieur sandwich was not at all like it is in France. I don't think the bread was even grilled. The course offerings were a bit disappointing. The server didn't offer us dessert.

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.
