    Had a table overlooking the falls. Our waitress was great. We had fun with her. She does her job very well! Can’t remember her name, but she is a cute African American with beautiful lashes! Bouillabaisse and Mussel dishes were delicious. Mussels were large and cooked just right in a fantastic broth.

    Passerelle Bistro was simply lovely. The aesthetics created in the middle of a park are bountiful. The outdoor tables, chairs and red umbrellas are reminiscent of a upscale French cafe. The food was delicious and the service excellent. We will definitely return. It’s a stunning creation! Merci!

    Pros: atmosphere, service, outside seating, if you’re lucky a musician will be performing close by, food and drinks good, they take reservations for inside and outside. Cons: You pay a little more for the location. Menu choices are a little limited - but ask - like I did for sangria. They may be able to accommodate you.

    We started our evening with the mussels. This dish did not disappoint. The broth was very flavorful and the mussels were cooked perfectly. My husband had the duck which was very tasty. My dish was the trout, perfectly breaded with fingerling potatoes and asparagus. The sauce was fabulous. We ended the evening with a birthday dessert of the best sorbet we have ever had along with an eclair, cupcake and a french macaroon all on a beautifully decorated plate. The service was excellent and the ambiance superb out on the patio by the Reedy river. The only problem was that the hostess couldn't find our reservation, but it was fine since they weren't that busy.

    Food seemed like it was taken out of a frozen food box and warmed, was hoping for so much more. Not impressed with the atmosphere, cramped and too warm inside when you leave the door open and it’s 85 degrees. The ease of your employees in and out or the comfort of your employees?

    We stopped here on the way home from our trip to the Myrtle Beach area. We had heard it was rated one of the most romantic restaurants in the US, and it did not disappoint. The setting is gorgeous, with the Reedy River and Falls below. The food was delicious. There were people walking on the bridge, there were beautiful flowers everywhere, and there was Othello being staged outdoors in the park below. The service was not fast. But that’s exactly what we wanted; we wanted to linger, to eat, to talk, to savor. That’s a European attitude-relax and linger over a meal. We did, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We would recommend making a reservation on Open Table and spending some time at Passerelle Bistro if you are in the Greenville, SC area. 💕

    This is one of my favorite restaurants in Greenville, and was surprised our meal wasn't up to their typical high standards. A friend and I ordered their typically excellent trout dish, and were disappointed to discover they were out of trout by 6:30 PM. They substituted red snapper at the same price. It came with a watery yellow sauce that was nearly flavorless. My wife ordered bouillabaisse. It was presented as ~10 medium shrimp plus a small piece of red snapper, with no mussels or clams, in an overly-spiced orange sauce which was so hot that it was nearly impossible to swallow (Too much cayenne pepper? In bouillabaisse?) The shrimp became edible only after she took them out of the sauce and rinsed them off with the near tasteless yellow sauce that came with my dish. It was served with soggy, sliced French bread covered in some sort of orange stuff. Didn't taste like butter. Another friend had their duck dish and was pleased. I've been to Passerelle Bistro at least a dozen times before and have never been disappointed with their food. Perhaps a new, inexperienced chef? I'll give it another try in the future, but admit to being wary. It's a moderately expensive restaurant in a wonderful location. Hopefully, dinner yesterday was an aberration. At this time, I'll still recommend it as this hasn't happened before.

    We had opted to sit inside due to the unstable weather. It was quaint and we were seated next to the bar area. Our escargot appetizer was delish. That with our cocktails made for a wonderful start to our husband/wife dinner date. Our entrees were brought out at an appropriate time (allowed us to linger over our appetizer and drinks). We both ordered mussels (my dish included shrimp which were tender and tasty). Then we both noticed that we had been served mussels that had not opened after steaming. Thankfully we knew that these were inedible and potentially dangerous if we had tried to crack them open to eat. It’s like serving raw chicken to a customer!!! We brought it to the attention of our waitstaff who asked if we wanted more mussels. What? Your kitchen nearly poisoned us, no we do not want more. The Manager then got involved and apologized profusely and said there would be no charge for the mussel plates and assured us that the kitchen staff would be retrained on the food safety of shellfish. Except for that odd experience, service was delightful and the food that was prepared properly was very much enjoyed. We will give them another try.

    Due to inclement weather, outside seating was not available HOWEVER they proactively arranged two other options (inside seating or patio under cover) in advance of our arrival; that was terrific! Service was adequate but a bit slow throughout dining experience; a change to serving choice was made without acknowledgement - would have appreciated advance’ warning to allow for alternative choice. My trout entree was exquisite however! Dinner and drinks for two at a little over $100 was a decent, but not great, value. BUT we were able to secure a suitable reservation the day before for a Friday evening so thus the ‘average’ overall rating

    Very cute outside patio and friendly staff, but unfortunately the food was disappointing. We had escargot that was fine, if a little gritty and frites for apps. Dinner was highlighted by the duck which was decent. I had boullabase that was pretty bland and my wife had the vegetarian meal which she commented tasted straight out of chef boy-r-dee. Cocktails were good.

    Where to start....we were so excited to return to this restaurant after 3 long years of going nowhere because of the pandemic...the view is as great as ever. The problems started right from the start. I ordered a drink while my wife went to the restroom and wasn't sure what she would want so didn't order her one. Sometime after she came back, the server finally brought my drink and took my wife's drink order. A little over half hour later her drink finally came. The server brought it and left before taking our food order. Finally returning about 10 minutes later to do that..we waited...and waited....mind you there was only 2 other tables seated around us at the time we ordered - one of which was trying to get someone's attention to pay their bill. Meantime at least 2 other tables were seated and got their drink orders quickly and got their food before us! We finally got the attention of someone, maybe manager?, and asked what was taking so long - within a few minutes we got our food. Our appetizers were wonderful ( escargot and mussels ). I had the sauteed trout - ok but had better but my wife ordered the steak frites and couldn't believe it - her meal was lukewarm if I was being generous. We let the server know and she told the manager? who claimed she saw them take the steak right off the grill. I don't think so! As hot as it was outside there was no way it would have cooled that quickly. We ended taking it with us to microwave later. Sad to say, we won't be back.
