Thank you for a wonderful dinner. It reminded us of dinners on Saint Martin and brought fond memories to us. The whole staff made us feel welcome and were very attentive 😁

We were very surprised to find the restaurant almost deserted on a Saturday evening at 8:30 pm. The parking was difficult, but manageable. There was a musician outside on the sidewalk terrace, but inside of the restaurant there was only one other occupied table. The maitre’d was in short-shorts and a tied shirt and she showed us to a small table with a menu board full of very high-priced entrees. We looked at the regular menu for the more moderately priced options. I had a pappardelle carbonara, which was greasy and unappetizing. The appetizer bread was delicious, though.

ww were there during the very slow month of September, around hurricane time. It was very quiet. THe server was absolutely delightful . The owner came and chatted with us. The personal interaction made the evening very special for us. While the food overall was very good, the appetizers were out of this world! Perhaps the best caprese with burrata we have ever had, as well as the escargots. And the bread with truffle butter was outstanding!

When we arrived the odor in the restaurant was musty and the dining room was warm. My wife's beef stew was very dry and overcooked. I tried to order sole, they had no sole: then they had no bronzini, so I settled for the salmon which was a very small portion. I do nor recommend this restaurant.

We each had the tradition onion soup and a standard entree from the dinner menu. The food was very good but the rest of the experience was below average. The entire restaurant had an unusual odor; the men's room was in a bit of disrepair and it was obvious the soap dispenser had not been filled in some time; the wine list was inaccurate and the music being played was entirely inconsistent with a French dining experience.

Bastille Day
Unfortunately no mention of it at all , no special menu , which I find surprising for a French restaurant .
Food was excellent , service was spotty and not up to standard for the price point of $45 entrees .
The food was worth it but wish they had a higher quality of service .
Chef / owner was personable .

Food was sub par - felt like they used cheap ingredients and menu pricing was not what was on open table and significantly priced higher. Everything was initially presented as an upselll. Left my meal pretty much untouched.

The food and service were impeccable. There were a variety of items on the menu that you don't find in other restaurants, like frogs legs. I thought it was a little pricey, but I think most bistros are. It was well worth the cost though since the food was really good and I really appreciate good service.

Our waitress was a young beautiful woman from Lyons, only 6-months in the U.S. she was classically French which complimented our experience tremendously. The food was very good and the service was attentive. We will definitely return.

Terrible experience on Valentines Day. Parking was a nightmare in Hollywood Circle. It rained right before so I'm sure that made seating difficult with no outdoor seating. It took so long to get a table. I was looking forward to cocktails and they said they lost their liquor license 3 months ago, so only beer and wine. They were very overwhelmed! The food was actually good when it did come. The bang bang shrimp was great. At 10 pm my daughter had to leave to get babysitter home, so they had to take their meal to go! The whole experience was stressful and not the romantic relaxing night I imagined! Perhaps on a normal night I would try this place again, but they needed to get their act together this night and did not succeed!

One of the nicest restaurants in the Hollywood, Hallandale Beach area. We have now gone twice and the food is sensational! Richard and Gabby are perfect hosts and everything is done to perfection. You’ll never feel rushed in this establishment and I guarantee that you will enjoy everything you order from your first bite to the last!

Owner was very friendly. Was recommended that I try the duck legs. Now I recommend it to everyone. Also tried the cab cakes. Plating of food was phenomenal. My guest had the chilean sea bass and I had the filet and lobster special. Both were delicious. Highly recommended for everyone looking for homemade dishes that is willing to pay a little more for better quality.

WOW! Bistro 1902 is a jewel! Don’t settle for anything less - Richard and team have recreated a superb dining experience.

From the olive butter and piping fresh rolls, to the amazing bisque d’homard and escargots through to superb scallops and seafood pappardelle and the amazing finishing touch of the cheesecake the food was among the most delicious we have tasted anywhere (and we get around multiple continents).

Standouts include: the escargots- my wife is a connaisseure- and these were amazing with just the right touch of garlic in the wonderful sauce; the cheesecake- no, you have never tasted cheesecake like this , you must save room.

The service was, of course, excellent. The staff and owners were very attentive yet not hovering. Just the right touch.

Definitely a place to visit again and definitely in my top 5 list.

Merci pour la soirée superbe - et à bientôt!
