Bistro Campagne is a warm and friendly neighborhood restaurant in the tradition of a true French bistro. From the beginning, Bistro Campagne has strived to capture and express that ephemeral quality found in favorite small neighborhood bistros in Paris and rural France: the sense of welcome, ease, fun conversation & and of course excellent food. The setting is a charming blend of prairie-inspired decor and lively Gallic spirit. It is the food, however, that is at the heart of a great bistro, and Chef Adam Grandt offers a seasonally changing menu of classic bistro fare that is based on the best ingredients he can find. His commitment to organic agriculture leads him to seek products from local organic farmers throughout our Midwestern growing season, and even from organic farms on the west coast throughout the winter. Bistro Campagne is committed to the use of organic food products and strongly supports the sustainable, low impact agriculture movement.

    We arrived a few minutes early for our 6:00 reservation and were pleased to see that the staff was totally prepared and geared up for the crowd that would be attending Songs of Good Cheer at the Old Town School of Music at 7:30. We were served at a pace that had us done and satisfied in plenty of time for the performance and yet we never felt rushed. Hats off to all who made it happen! A memorable meal on a wonderful holiday evening!

    Saturday was my husband's birthday and I had made the reservation three weeks in advance because I knew it would be crowded. To our great disappointment, we were taken to the worst table in the place - small and out in the middle of the main floor behind the seated bar patrons, with servers and guests constantly pushing by both sides of our table. We ditched any ideas of ordering a bottle of wine and lingering over the finer entrees. We just ordered burgers and decided to resume our romantic evening at a different place. This isn't the first time something comparable has happened at Bistro Campagne. It's definitely hit or miss in terms of feeling like the experience as a whole is worth it. If you're looking for a place for a special celebration, be aware that it could go either way at this restaurant. We've had occasions when everything was great too, but not this time.

    Definitely not what it used to be, sadly. It was one of my favorite restaurants in the city but the last time I went back it had slipped so didn't go for the past year but then decided to give it another try. Still love the ambiance and our server was very nice. However the bread wasn't as good as it used to be and the halibut special was overcooked. The steak frites that used to be outstanding was just ok with kind of mushy fries. The pumpkin creme brulee desert was also just ok- I have had outstanding pumpkin creme brulee in the past and this was not it. Unlikely that I'll go back.

    Everything about this Bistro was fantastic. We had a combination of apps and entrees that include beef and fish and all were prepared perfectly. The hanger steak frites were among the best I’ve had. The dining room is charming. The service friendly and attentive and the wine list was ample to cover any menu pairing. I will definitely return.

    Lackluster food at downtown prices. It had been many years since we dined here and it will be many more before we return. So many better French restaurants. The special pear salad was skimpy. The special halibut was just ok. The filet came with overcooked fries.

    The meal exceeded our expectations from beginning to end. Our server Mel, was very gracious and offered spot on food and wine suggestions. My wife and I shared a bowl of potato leek soup and a roasted beet and burrata salad for starters followed by the Halibut and Lentil special for my wife and the Cassoulet for me, both were beyond delicious. We shared the Pain Perdu (bread pudding) for dessert which was fantastic. This was our first dining experience at Bistro Campagne and I can assure you it will become a permanent part of our dining favorites.

Thank you Bistro Campagne as it was also to celebrate my birthday. Such a special treat. We hope to go again in the future. Highly recommend.

    Great food. We had mussels and escargot for appetizers. The escargot were good but not the best we've had (not garlicky enough for us) but the mussels were outstanding. The serving was large enough for us to share. Wish we had known because we would have only ordered the mussels. The pork chop and the bouillabaisse were excellent. The pork chop was very tender and forestiere sauce was very good. Both were large enough servings that we took some home for the next day's lunch -- still excellent. Desserts were good. My husband didn't love the chocolate mousse -- the texture was too dense for him and he didn't like that the passionfruit creme was on the bottom. But my apple strudel with ice cream (substituting for Tarte Tatin on the menu) was great and we shared that.

    Food was good but not Wow from what we were led to believe from others we know whom had gone before. Also the restaurant inside was very warm/hot inside without any lack of any fresh air or ventilation thus smelling everything that moved inside that was unpleasant at times. Service was good, lacked any enthusiasm or passion for the food itself and the menu offerings. It was the end of Restaurant week and so maybe a lack of spirit was there but still a little disappointing, especially for a Friday evening at only 7pm.

But the best part was the food, and the mussels was so delicious that you just wanna keep eating it. I’ll be sure to come back here. The waiter was so knowledgeable he’s been there for 15 yrs and knows the menu very well. Next come back we’re ordering escargot and pork chop!

    Never had a bad meal at Bistro Campagne. Such a friendly neighborhood place, bistro atmosphere, noisy in a nice way but not "can't hear you at all" level. The escargot was amazing with the piping hot baguette, and the bouillabaisse that is a seasonal specialty was every bit as good as I remembered it. And one can find parking!

We were there on Wednesday and they had a fixed price dinner that was a good deal. We went for my wife's birthday with our youngest daughter (an adult) It was her first time and she was also very happy with the food. The portions were more than adequate. We will surely return.
