Another stellar meal at Bistro, menu choices are great and the food is excellent, probably one of the best restaurant around and certainly rivaling the high dining in NJ. Everything was delicious from starter to dessert. We will be back (soon)

Hands down the best dining experience in NJ. The food was impeccable and so delicious, the service was outstanding and the overall ambience was fantastic. I highly recommend this restaurant. I have been to so many restaurants in the US and Europe and the cuisine and experience was to tier. Thank you Bistro d’ Azur for a wonderful dining experience.

We had such a lovely evening ... they make you feel like you're special, take your coats upon arrival (small but important detail). The tables are large and set far enough apart. The service is excellent. Our problem (not the restaurant's) is we individually and collectively have issues which prohibit us from fully enjoying the varied and interesting menu which is too bad for us. Everything sounds delicious and deducing from our two recent meals there, the food is top notch with careful attention to presentation and flavor details. A most enjoyable experience in a suburban town! Oh, and they have a terrific jazzy playlist which adds to the experience. Highly recommended.

This place is our go to place when we want amazing food, great service and a lovely ambiance. So, Ofcourse we were here for New Years Eve dinner. Spend 3 hours over the most amazing 4-course meal. The food was perfect. I can never get over the lobster crepes and their steak is always cooked to perfection. The service is attentive without rushing us through our meal. Was a relaxed and wonderful New Years Eve.

This is my new favorite North Jersey restaurant. Beautiful decor with well spaced tables. The food looked exquisite and tasted fabulous. My dining partner and I each chose the two course prix fixe option. Since we both chose the same first and second courses, we were unable to taste other dishes; however, the lobster crepe first course and the lavender honey roast duck were both outstanding. I had notified the restaurant that we were celebrating a birthday and they presented us with a lovely French champagne to toast the occasion. A very thoughtful touch! We will definitely return.

The food, ambiance, and experience were all amazing. The service, however, could have been better at this price; our waiter was quite gruff and not very welcoming, and would expect more when coming for a prix fixe experience.

The food can only be described as exquisite!! And this is true for the many different items(appetizer, main course and desert) we have enjoyed during many visits over the past few years. All items can also be described as deliciously creative.
We have never been disappointed with anything.
That is why we return regularly for dinner.

I was looking forward to a price fixe as I find choosing easier from a limited first and second course all delicious to the eye. My wife, friends and I were not disappointed. The food is well presented and very tasty. We all had different dishes including venison, duck and swordfish. We had our own wine - a red burgundy; the choice of deserts were too amazing with lavender infused crème brûlée, home made ice cream and a cake with glazed cognac.

You'd never know what a warm environment awaits from the street! Service, while a little slow at the start (but what isn't these days???), was friendly, helpful and professional. Table for 6 and each of loved all of our dishes. Plenty of wine glasses and decanters at the ready for your BYO. Will definitely be back!

I initially was going to go into Manhattan but I had enjoyed my last dinner here and I decided to see if it had sorted out the kinks of a new restaurant. It started off a little bumpy, we had to ask for a wine list after our first course of three had arrived but it improved once we started eating. The bartender offered a glass of champagne once we mentioned we were celebrating my husband's birthday and although I am not a huge fan it was lovely and crisp. The attention to detail was exemplary. We ordered six different dishes to get a nice sampling and nothing fell short. The grilled octopus was perfectly cooked, seared and smoky on the outside and soft and sublime on the inside. The salmon was a delight, a usually overly sauced dish to disguise a lack of ambition this iteration was I think similar to a salmon tartar with a crisp bright taste that was surprising and perfection. Perfectly portioned venison meatballs with a rich tomato chutney was another hit with the a combination of flavors that was the best type of gamey and sweetly tart. The scallops were generous and full of briny goodness with plenty of sauce for the requisite bread dunk! My husband moaned when he ate his duck, the one dish I refuse to make at home having done a seared Peking duck decades before and still haunted by the memory. My lamb shank a la Flintstone was so mammoth I will be having a sandwich the day after. The chef chatted with us at we sat at the bar and added a dish of foraged mushrooms to our last course that tipped this experience into the sublime. Braised lamb with risotto and mushrooms was a meal I last ate in Italy and this was right up there minus the view. A lavender flavored crème brulee and a piece of chocolate heaven, my husband's words, finished the meal in style. All in all another feather in the cap of what I hope will be a premier local restaurant for many years to come.

Thank you so much for this wonderful review. Just to clarify, for others reading this, we don't have a liquor license (none available/NJ's bizarre laws). We are a BYOB restaurant, but have a very limited selection of wines available for purchase, by the bottle, through special arrangement with Unionville Vineyards. So, bring your own, or feel free to order off the front page of our menu. No corkage fee ever, and we will provide decanters for those bold reds! Thanks again for your kind words.
