Our experience on Thanksgiving day was nothing short of spectacular. I'm the GM of the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach so when i experience exceptional service i let you know.
I believe our server was Amanda. Long blond hair !!
She was what every service person in hospitality should be. Gracious, timely, and a smile.

Thanks for a wonderful experience.

The waiter was very good. She was polite and helped us with all of our needs. The food was amazing, however I did think the burger was a little pricey. The fries were seasoned well. We also had the steak hash. The steak was cooked perfectly.

We relished each moment and aspect of our Saturday brunch by the waterfall among the lush fall foliage of Falls park. Laura our waitress made us feel like family. We started with the light warm belgian waffles after she said she had enjoyed the aroma of the batter drifting through the kitchen. They were light on inside, crips on outside, accompanied with warm maples syrup berries and butter - a perfect was to start a brunch on a glorious fall Saturday morning. One of us enjoyed perfectly poached eggs, crisp bacon and house made sausage with a toasted croissant. The other savored every sip and bite of the Passerelle's tasty bouliabasse, just spicy enough and delightfully warm on a cool morning. I skipped the the toasted bread that comes with it because i knew i would not be able to resist it from the table. But i did not allow any of the savory broth to escape.
We enjoyed a similar brunch last week, and feasted on grilled asparagus and hollandaise (perfect) and crab benedict (wonderful). and Pain Perdue -- toasted brioche with spiced creme fresh and berries and warm maple syrup. (i recomment both this and the belgian waffles, but not at the same time)

This is our favorite place for brunch in Greenville -- we thought to ourselves that it was better than many more pricey brunches we have enjoyed in New York and much easier to access
Laura provides subperb service.

First time to eat Sunday Brunch at Passerelle Bistro. The drink specials are a bargain and super yummy. I loved to have an expanded menu to try something new. The food was great. Had to get an order of frites (make sure you order them well done to get hot and crispy frites) and remoulade sauce and on order of mussels - they are so good and easily shared or not! Such a great place for brunch especially with the outdoor dining!

Passerelle remains our favorite place in town.
Although we don't really go out much during the pandemic, we feel safe here and try to get there regularly.
It is lovely, the menu is terrific, and Michael and his staff, especially Natalie and Miranda, are tops.
We feel fortunate that they offer such a superb experience.
THANK YOU, Passerelle!

I have been to this restaurant many times and have enjoyed it. This time was different as I noticed they changed a policy regarding dogs. Every table had at least one dog. I am against this policy Some people may be allergic. Not all dogs behaved properly and it was annoying I didnt feel that for the high price I paid for lunch made dining with dogs knot seem upscale

The view from the porch of the restaurant is stunning! (too bad it was raining when we went). However, the food was spectacular - we had the mussels and escargot to start, then the steak and frites and the venison as our entree, with the coffee creme brûlée for dessert. Everything was lovely, including our server, and I would absolutely love to dine here again!

We went for the mussels which always please. But the red snapper that was just added to the menu was a real winner, and the cassolette with lamb instead of venison was equally good. Our server Darcy made a wonderful recommendation of the Bellula Chardonnay from France. And you can't beat eating good food outdoors with a view of the bridge.

Everything was excellent, also the gluten free options. The only strange thing was this: we were able to make a reservation at 8.30 and were looking forward to a quiet French dinner only to learn that service actually stopped at 9.00. Although the staff was courteous we noticed enough pressure to inquire about closing times.

We loved this setting, and the menu had many French classic dishes. The small course olives were out of this world. Mussels were inconsistently cooked, some tough and some perfect. Steak Frites were a real disappointment. The steak was tough at medium and fries seemed like they had been hanging around for quite awhile. Spacing of diners was very good.
