Everything was very good: food, service. Tables were on sidewalk near street parking so site is not very attractive. But luckily, because it is on upper Girard there was little car traffic to disturb dinners.

Our first time at Bistro du Marché and... it was fantastic. Ravioli and octopus were out of this world (especially the latter) and so were our plates. My salmon and my girlfriend's scallops were very good. We will be coming back for sure.

Absolutely fabulous dining experience. We sat outside and the weather was wonderful. The service was top notch as would be expected at a restaurant of this caliber. We enjoyed an excellent salad du Marche and two different duck preparations. This is the best french food outside of France. Seriously!!! The wine list was superb and the dessert of Ile Flottant (floating island) topped the meal perfectly. Just wish the restaurant was closer to home in Calabasas. Well worth the trip.

the food is always above reproach. now, the wait staff must cover some ground as the outdoor service area has expanded and it's delightful. And you can park right in front of the Bistro! Try that with any other restaurant!

If you want to go somewhere where you feel you are in Europe having a delicious and gracious meal, go to Bistro du Marche. All your worries will disappear while you are there. The food amazes me each time we go, with the freshest market foods available. I feel like I am family there.

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.

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 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.
