My 2nd time there. Food was excellent. Recommend the shrimp and lobster seafood salad and the tuna Nicoise. Both excellent. Frozen rose sangria also really excellent, delish but felt like it was missing alcohol completely this time.
Such a friendly staff as well. The tent is perfect to feel comfortable for safer outdoor dining.

Wonderful food and a charming atmosphere. We ate in the outdoor seating area, which had bamboo siding to allow air flow but block the bright sun. I was thrilled that the staff all spoke French (as well as English). My crepe was very good and the ile flotant dessert was heavenly.

Most days this place is absolutely perfect for a quiet lunch or dinner. The food is always excellent and fresh. Vincent, the owner always comes out to greet each table to see how everyone is doing. The servers are also very informative if you have questions about the dishes that you order. We went on Father’s Day so there were too many people and too little servers to man the bistro. It was uncharacteristically noisy and crazy busy. Still, I have to say that this place is our favorite go to for fresh expertly prepared farm to table like meals and should really be recognized by Michelin.

We tried Bistro Eloise for the first time, but it defines won’t be the last. My husband said his French Onion Soup and Chicken Cordon Bleu were the best meal he has ever had. The servers were all friendly and helpful.

The service was extremely friendly, but also very slow. It took two hours to complete our lunch. They also forgot to bring coffee the first time and cream later on.

We've been to Bistro Eloise before and have really enjoyed it and we were excited to see that they doubled their capacity with outdoor seating. The kitchen is small and the wait for food was really long +/- 30min from ordering. The menu was definitely reduced from the last time we were there which was a bit disappointing for Mother's Day. They were fairly busy but the Service was not good considering the number of servers for the space. There was no communication from the kitchen on the status of our food and our server forgot an item. We will be back but maybe on a less busy sunday.

The food was excellent! My fiancé and I got the French onion soup and the baked Brie to start and both were delicious - the baked Brie came with a refreshing salad as well. For entree we got the Octopus & Chorizo - wow, the best dish we’ve had in awhile.

For dessert we had chocolate mousse and Spiked cappuccino (ask for this because it’s not on the menu!) that was the perfect end to our date. The wait staff was also exceptional and super attentive. We cannot wait to go back and try more things on the menu!

Outdoor dining tent with individual heaters over each table so toasty warm. Basic table setup. Rained that day and tables near the entrance, floor was wet. French music gave it a more authentic ambiance. Overall 3.5 stars on atmosphere and environment. Could do a little nicer decor, the rain creeping in didn't help, but still comfortable set-up.

Food was excellent with one exception. We tried the escargots, beef bourguignon, and duck l'orange. The escargots were amazing and when the tasty snails were all gone, couldn't stop dipping the bread in the garlic butter. The duck was also excellent but unfortunately, the beef bourguignon was just ok. Was missing the carrots so visually all one color and dull. I also couldn't find any bacon and plate had more mash potatoes than stew. However, everything else was excellent and we finished on a high note with the creme brulee.

Plan to come back since had debated on a few other items on the menu. Couldn't order them all so will have to come back for a second visit to try.

I absolutely love the crepes and seafood dishes here! Service is always great! A hidden gem! The only thing I would complain about is consistency of drinks.. I ordered a champagne mojito and the first time it was absolutely amazing! The second, third and fourth time however.. it sucked.

I love this place. The food is always amazing and the staff is wonderful. I can’t say enough about this place. Plenty of parking in case you’re wondering. Little French gem of queens...
Ohh.. the food was so good, I ordered other menu items to go just so I could try at home ... definitely going back again and again and again lol
