Food is tasty and cooked well. Service is cordial and professional. The owner, Vincent is very hands on and greets guests. Truly The gem of Queens County.

They did an excellent job to comply with Covid.
Great outdoor setup. Tables were spaced apart with hand sanitizer and online menu info. All waitstaff wore masks. Food delicious as ever.

It was an absolute delight. I had a 5 pm reservation. We sat down quickly, the waiters were wearing masks and very friendly. It happened to be my friend's birthday and they overheard us discussing it and one of the waiters put a birthday candle in her dessert. The food was amazing. Great service and a great restaurant.

I had a great French vegetarian meal, while my omnivore dining companion couldn't have relished his boeuf bourguignon more. Our second time dining at Bistro Eloise, greatly appreciating the warm hospitality, and the lovely outdoor seating set up within the shopping center. A new favorite.

Outdoor dining fun at Bistro Eloise! Such a treat! We had escargot, the farmer's mac & cheese as well as a savory crepe with French sausage. We left super full, without any room for dessert, unfortunately. We look forward to returning there again.

As in the past, our experience was excellent, even with the new challenges of Covid 19.
It was refreshing not only to be able to enjoy a meal out of he house, but to see that even though it was outdoor service, you felt as if you were inside. They made a make shift dining room outside that was pleasant to look at and be in it.
But the best part, their exceptional service remains as flawless as can be expected. Glad we have this remarkable establishment in our community.

The food at this restaurant is always delicious. Outdoor dining under the new rules can be tricky, but this restaurant has been complying with the takeout and delivery rules without a glitch, and the transition to outdoor dining was made with elegance and efficiency.

A small cozy, French bistro located close to home. The baked brie and wine are superb and the lambchops were fabulous.

The desserts - crème brulee and lemon tart were fabulous. This is a great addition to our neighborhood.

The food was superb. I enjoyed the champagne mohito with brunch and loved the place so much I went back 3 times this weekend and each time ordered something different and was extremely happy. The last time I ordered the beef bourguignon with a glass of red wine and it was divine. Next time I am in the neighborhood will make it a point to have the Eloise burger. Oh, you must have the fries with truffle oil... AMAZING!

The place is bright and airy but a bit loud for me. Tables are close together which can be a bit off putting but it turned out well for me as I ran into an old high school friend after 45 years.

The food was great. The French Onion soup was just ok. We mostly had yummy croquet messieurs and lovely green salads. We ordered French Fries to share and they were delicious. Crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside.
The waiters were helpful and accommodating.
The Bloody Mary is a must. I am going to try the mussels and fries next time. You should give it a try.

Cozy restaurant but busy.
The restaurant is small.
We had a restaurant for 8pm on Sat night. We were seated by the service area where a person walk by hit the chair next to me. The place was pact and Quite noisy The main entree was good. I had cod fish with champagne sauce. but the string beans were over cooked. The hubby had the lamb chops which was good. The chocolate mousse was light. The service was great since the server bought out the food that was still hot. We did have to wait for our food since there were several big groups before us. The price is reasonable. Highly Recommend for reservation. The

The food and service at Bistro Eloise was great. The waiters were all very friendly. We had the escargot for an appetizer (my first time) and it was delicious. My Beef Bourguignon melted in my mouth and I was so pleased to have found this cute spot. My boyfriend and I made a reservation for a post vday dinner. We're glad we did. When we walked in (early) the place was fairly empty but boy did seats fill up quicky. We can't wait to return for a brunch in the future.

Delicious traditional French home-style cooking. Staff are relaxed yet professional, wine list is excellent. Intimate and charming, it's usually filled with neighborhood couples and lots of French-speaking New Yorkers.

We live on Long Island, about an hours drive away and it was well worth it. Everything was great! Food was amazing. The service and staff were great, friendly and welcoming. Small restaurant but there was ample parking outside. The only complaint I might have is the tables were very close to each other, a little claustrophobic. Can’t wait to go back!

It was our first visit to Bistro Eloise after at least 20 local friends recommended it!!! We decided to meet with friends who were coming to visit from Riverdale. Our table in the back corner was cozy and intimate and great for chatting. The restaurant was very busy as it was Sunday brunch. The food choices are phenomenal and every dish that we watched go by looked delicious. We got our water and menus. We decided on some basic fare; salads and a crepe and an omelet. Two of us ordered coffee/cappuccino. We then proceeded to wait 45 minutes for our food to be served from the time of ordering! We asked our server twice where was our food was (the first time was after about 25 minutes), and he replied, "oh, let me check." When we returned he said it would be 5 more minutes. Hmmm? So, we continued to chat and after another 15 minutes, just our dishes were served to myself and my partner. Our friends still had no food. Another 5 minutes went by and finally, they were given their crepe and omelet dishes. There was no explanation why we waited 45 minutes for our food, but I think what happened was is that they forgot to put in our order and after 25 minutes, when we first asked, they scrambled to get it all made? One table came in well after us and was done eating their eggs, long before we even received our food.
We loved the vibe. The kind service. And, mainly the FOOD! Would love to try again and again with other friends and family, and most likely will. Just, be a little more transparent when a goof is made. Say, oh sorry, your order wasn't put in and we need 15 minutes more to make your dishes. Then, maybe bring out some bread or maybe offer coffee to the table, whatever. It builds customer relations and makes everyone feel that they are appreciated and so is their time. We will return and look forward to trying dinner options too!

My aunt and I were surprised to find this bistro tucked in a shopping center, but we're so glad we did! The food (the bread!) was delicious and Fabio was an excellent server. We split the muscles and frites (so good), tuna tartare, and french onion soup. And a LOT of bread. We will definitely be back!

Eloise has what every restaurant should - most personable staff, authentic simple french food and charm. Perfect escargot in a puff pastry and the rack of lamb/steak always cooked as requested. A real winner!
