The restaurant is very pretty but is packed and can get pretty loud. Service was great but there was a lot of waiting in between courses.

The food was delicious specially the mussels. The bouillabaisse was fabulous yet was dissatisfied with the portion of Ribeye steak that was maximum 4 oz for $54.! For that prize at least 8 oz!!

Great service.

Filled up very fast and not as socially distanced as I would have preferred, we loved the food. Even put on our masks in between courses because we need to have dessert.
I wish the restaurant had a vaccine mandate then I would feel more comfortable being so close to other parties.

Bicyclette is an excellent French bistro, the place to get onion soup and boulabaise among other treats. The food is of high quality and well-served in a bustling environment. A great week-day place for a late-nite meal.

Food and service were outstanding. Noise level was much too high due to loud volume of music. The vibe of the patrons would have been enough. Also music-loud modern- does not, in my view, fit the French bistro.
Scallops were the best I’ve ever eaten. Also excellent dishes were the onion tart and the duck. Desserts were great and the baguette with butter is a must.

The cocktails, mussels baguette and Normandie butter were excellent. I had the steak au poivre, which was small for $50.00 plus. The sauces were underwhelming and a bit pasty. My wife had the gnocchi which were bland. She described them as “glorified tater tots”. The ambiance was lively and the service was attentive. We will try it again but so far it doesn’t come close to being on par with République. 3 Stars.

I think we kind of started on the wrong foot. Asked our server for a glass of wine and he said he will send the sommelier which never came. Truly enjoyed the food and the ambience and would have been 4 or 5 stars if it wasn't for what happened at the end of dinner. They sat two customers next to our table with a "service" dog. Don't get me wrong, I love dogs and have had dogs all my life. But this dog started scratching non-stop and the server was kind of touching it. With such tight space and in an enclosed environment, I just didn't feel comfortable about this. Wish they would at least ask us if we minded having a dog sitting right at my feet.

The staff were very kind, Tevin (our server) and Christina (the sommelier) were delightful, professional and on point. The food was delicious - we had the caviar egg, the duck breast (so tender and not overcooked), oysters, and more. Everything was prepared beautifully. And we even got to sit next to the most sweet and calm service dog. How lucky were we! It was a lovely evening.

Cute, intimate French restaurant in the old Sotto space. Their food is a more updated, fresh style to the traditional French bistro menu items. I saw many types of guests from dates, to groups, solo diners, and people of every age. Great drinks and service too!

the food was excellent but supplies surprisingly limited. they ran out of sparkling water before our 7:30 pm reservation. they brought sample dessert tray to table & we ordered only to be told they were out of the desert selected. given pandemic it was surprising to have desserts brought to table and then cut up & served from display.

noise level was so high it was challenging to hear staff & converse with shared dining partners.

Amazing food, impeccable service, perfect ambience for group or date. You can even have dinner at their chic bar. You can’t miss the baguette with the Normandy butter. The butter was so incredible and the bread was fresh— we ordered two! Along with delicious oysters and the soft egg. I highly recommend the duck. The plum sauce pairs insanely well. I haven’t had this great a dinner in ages! The staff makes you feel super welcome and are engaging. I will definitely be coming back!
