We enjoyed your 7 years as Bistro Bordeaux and look forward to your next incarnation.
Sunday at Bistro Bordeaux could not have been better - except for one thing - Sunday was BB's last day. We will miss it dearly. However, Pascal B. who is the owner, has 2 other restaurants in Evanston which we fortunately will continue to be able to enjoy. And if he opens any other restaurants - we will be among the first there. So, for those reading this, I (highly) recommend you visit Patisserie Coralie and Creperie Saint Germain. Two gems in Evanston.
Found out that the Bistro is closing. Today is the last day. So very sad to see them go. Definitely was my favorite Brunch place in Evanston.
We have always enjoyed Bistro Bordeau and are sorry too hear it is closing
Miss it already!
Best French dining on the north shore, we will miss it.
Sad they are closing!
The restaurant closed Sunday. Why are you wasting time requesting reviews?
We had a delightful experience. The food was nicely prepared and delicious.
Sadly the restaurant is closing soon. If interested get there before April 15 or so.
We stopped into the bistro for the first time after discovering it in Evanston earlier in the week. It has a European vibe and cozy atmosphere. The steak frites and modules were both very good. We will be back.
We will miss this restaurant when it closes on April 16. We have enjoyed our dinning experience here over the last 7 years and wish Pascal good luck in the future.
The restaurant atmosphere was very pleasant, quite convivial, but unfortunately a bit noisy. We had a table towards the back and there was a lot of traffic to and from the kitchen and to and from the rest homes. We had good drinks. We ordered steak freight and had it split in the kitchen for my husband and myself which was very nicely done. The salad we had was very good but the steak freight was cold, dry with no juices and not well done as we had ordered.
Great service, delicious dinners, three course Wednesday special!
We used to go here all the time. Maybe that was the problem. There is now lots to choose from in Evanston. They were running out of everything, food took so long. Was such a bummer. 2 days later we got an email announcing their closing. I guess that was what was going on. I wish I had known.
The ambiance is GREAT, service good and the selection tantalizing. Very authentic French Bistro food. The food was good, and my fish featured VERY seasonal morel mushrooms( currently being harvested in Indiana), but my delicate fish was over salty.
Bistro Bordeaux was excellent, as always. Not overly complicated; just good choices with good ingredients prepared very well in traditional french fashion.
Food and service were very good.
It wasn't crowded on a rainy Friday..not sure if it was the beginning of spring break or what.. That was the only thing . It lacked energy. I guess it would be ok for a romantic get together or a quiet evening.
Noisy table with 8 shrieking diners next to us ruined the ambiance and made conversation next to impossible.
But I'd go back for the food and the excellent service.
We made our reservation online and did not put anything in the Special Request field. Nevertheless, when the restaurant called to confirm, they asked whether we would be celebrating a special occasion. I admitted our anniversary was coming up. When we arrived, as soon as we were seated, our server brought us flutes of champagne. It was a lovely touch, and it was clear throughout the meal that the entire staff on duty was aware of our occasion -- even the bartender wished us "Happy Anniversary" as we left. While the food wasn't the best French we've ever had (We were lucky enough to visit Le Francais twice during its heyday, and that's a high standard), it was tasty, well-prepared and a good value. But the thing that impressed me most about Bistro Bordeaux was that it's a proper restaurant -- neither stuffy nor overly casual, with a knowledgeable staff and professional service.
Lovely French restaurant. Perfect for romantic dinner or with friends.
