We appreciated being able to eat outside during the Covid shutdown. The service was just a tiny bit slower than usual probably due to the new protocol. The food was outstanding as always. When my wine wasn’t perfect, it was readily replaced. Can’t wait to go back.

We are delighted that Bistro back to Moules Frite. The mussels are fabulous and the sauce they are served in could stand on its own with the absolutely delicious bread Bistro is known for. The young man behind the bar (I think his name was Adam) was friendly, solicitous and made our meal a very pleasant experience.

Everything is magnificent and superlative here: the food exquisitely prepared; the display on the plate always looks like a fine work or art; and the staff are all very knowledgeable about the food.

Fine food, fine service amid proper social distancing. The Faroe Island salmon entree, with creamed baby spinach and fingerling potato, is especially tasty.

Enjoyed our experience. They seated us at a table outside, per our request. Waiter was personable. Menu had risotto with sea scallops. I love risotto, do not care for scallops. Waiter suggested doing the risotto with the salmon. Perfect! It was the best risotto I have tasted in a long time. Rich, flavorful sauce with peas, and other veggies. The food here is always excellent.

We enjoyed an evening that began with Brie in toast points with shaved black truffle and mussels followed by a delicious fresh cod entree and Coq au Vin - the service was great!

We don't eat at French Bistro's often but this was our second time at this Bistro. I had the Carbonara/truffle special and my husband went with the traditional Cassoulet. Both were delicious, served hot and paired with a great french wine. Delish, fresh, crusty bread was carb worthy. The mushroom appetizer and Pate were also spot on. Our server was attentive and appeared very knowledgeable about the menu and wine list. We will return.

They seem to open the front doors as the evening goes by and the restaurant becomes like a refrigerator -- freezer. Then can't wait to get out of there. Not first time it happens to me.

Wonderful food as always at one of our favorite spots in La Jolla, but this time, the service slipped a bit. A glass of wine arrived 15 minutes after being ordered and I had to ask twice for a knife for my entree after mine had been removed when my appetizer plate was cleared. Unusual glitch.

We started with the Lobster Bisque and the Endive Salad and both were delicious. Our entrees were the Lobster Special which was wonderful - Maine lobster on a bed of perfectly cooked white corn in a nicely flavored light foam, and another special for the night - a beautiful piece of Cod with a tasty sauce. A very nice evening!

Meeting family and friends for Sunday brunch, our group of five had not previously been here and found the menu, service, and setting great. We especially appreciated the noise level where we could listen to one another without shouting.

Food was quite good but service was bad. Had to ask for more bread several times. Haricot Vert, always available before, could not be ordered as a side dish...never had this happen before... Bill was quite expensive for what we had. An exception was the wine (a Paso Robles Cabernet) which was well priced and good...

Beautifully prepared meal with wonderful flavor. Very pleasant wait staff. When the restaurant is full, the noise level is high; it would benefit from fewer hard surfaces. However, the food and the decor more than make up for the loudness. The best steak-frites this side of France.

We love the food at Bistro du Marche and have always had good service until this last visit. I hope this was just an off day and that it doesn't continue to be the norm. We wanted to order dessert but it took the waitress ten minutes just to bring us the menu. There were plenty of servers and it wasn't particularly busy so I'm not sure what took so long. We were so annoyed we ended up just laying the bill and going somewhere else for dessert.

We really enjoyed our Saturday evening meal at busy Bistro Marché in La Jolla. From the classic pate appetizer to the petite Basque cheese, everything was nicely presented and delicious. This restaurant never misses a beat.

The sauce used on two roasted meat dishes we had was not savory. Did it lack salt, pepper, or what? Just flavorless.

Great food with large portions. Very busy night during restaurant week led to inconsistent service. I hate having a course served before the previous course is finished. Wine glasses were empty several times.
