Duck confit and coq au vin both came out disappointingly dry. Waiter seemed immature for the environment. Incredibly underwhelming, overall.

Excellent place for a quiet romantic dinner or for a nice couples meal. The food and wine was fantastic and delicious. The prices were good for Larimer and the outdoor seating was really quaint and romantic.

Any time your go to Bistro Vendome you know you will have a great meal. With the additional space on the romantic patio it is the perfect venue for a quiet, relaxing delicious meal. The service as always was excellent. I can’t say enough good things about this restaurant.

Had a quiet dinner outside. I had a delicious gnocchi dish and my husband had the cod au vin, also delish. Our server was very attentive and we lacked for nothing. A return visit is definitely in our plans.

Bistro Vendome is one, if not, my favorite restaurant.
There was something a bit off this time.
The service was not as attentive and efficient as usual.
The food was a little disappointing.
This review does not reflect how wonderful Bistro Vendome is ordinarily.
I think that everything is “a bit off,” during this pandemic.

Bistro Vendome was great. It has such a nice ambience - with their patio dining and lights in all the trees - it was a beautiful setting for a lovey meal. Our waitress was warm, friendly and informative. The whole evening was delightful.

Food was great. Keep in mind it's a Bistro so portions are a little smaller and can come across as overpriced, but it is good quality and delicious.

The service was on the slow side, but the romantic courtyard setting at dusk and the overall ambience more than made up for it.

Would recommend a visit!

The restaurant's outdoor dining is in its own courtyard, which is well decorated with fairy lights. The surrounding is quiet and peaceful, very suitable for a private dinner. The food is well prepared, and service is attentive. We had a great time there. Highly recommended.

Another great meal! My sister and I split an app and 2 entrees. Everything was delicious and our waitress (and supporting servers) were fabulous! We sat outside on the patio, so adorable and quaint! Can’t wait to go back!

We have been dining here since they 1st took over a number of years ago..

This night the service was good, food was tasty but I have never seen a smaller Duck leg..
I did not know they raised ducks that small.. My wife ordered it. It came on a bed of greens & it was mostly a bed of greens... I had the salmon which were two nice size pieces but on my God the duck leg was about 4 small bites..
Suggest taking this off the menu or finding someone that raises full size ducks.!!!

Or maybe the wait staff should tell us what we are getting for our $32.00.....

Average dinner, nothing too exciting. The coc au vin tasted like it was cooked separately and thrown together. The panzanella salad was too tart. Not real impressed and sad because wishing for a good Bistro meal

Real shame. Our favorite place but never again will we return. 34 anniversary. Two sips into the wine the diners came out. How is a duck confit done in 4 minutes. Mussels too. They were basically non meat inside shells. Duck was dry and tasteless.
Waiter not helpful manager got defensive about it.
Instead of using the miscue as a make it right, they dropped the ball.

Great food, basically got seated in an outside hallway despite the fact that were the only customers. It was cold. Ambiance was trash as a result. The note stating that reservations get seated in the main dining room is false. Might want to fix that. You know, so people aren't expecting a dining room and are rudely surprised by a hallway.

Absolutely fantastic food. Doesn't matter what you order, you'll be delighted. The amuse bouche was a delicious chilled mushroom bisque, the warm olives, dry salami of the day, cheese selections, grilled bread and fig jam were a smashing hit. Members of our table were impressed by the duck confit, braised chicken special, mussels & fries and conquilles noir (scallops). The preparation was spot on for each entrée and the dish accompaniments were fresh, interesting and flavorful takes on some old stand-bys. I'd be remiss not to mention the desserts..I mean after all it is a French restaurant. You cannot miss with the classic preparations of chocolate souffle, or creme brulee. However if you want something different the peach frangipane tart with creme fraiche ice cream is fantastic as well as the pavlova I had once before. The service is always phenomenal, but if you have the option to have Courtney as your server I'd highly recommend it. She's attentive, knowledgeable, personable and a breath of fresh air overall. Is it cheap? No. Is it worth every penny for a relaxing, scrumptious dining experience? Absolutely, and more.

The patio is lovely and feels safe but also provides a sense of dining with a community of people rather than alone. Food wasn't excellent, but some individual courses were tasty. The overall feeling was that it was a nice but not excellent dinner.

Location and service were exceptional. We asked and received a table outside in the spacious courtyard - quite nice compared to being on the street in other restaurants.

Food was very good, nice touches, - since we were at the restaurant for the Sunday midday menu and did not experience the full dinner menu, could not rate all options.

We would definitely return

We have been to BV a number of times. The food and the wine are always terrific. This time we found the service to be lacking in friendliness and professionalism. First, no acknowledgement that we were celebrating a wedding anniversary - just a simple "happy anniversary" is all I would have expected. My wife is gluten free and it took our wait person some time to recall what would and would not work. Wine service was very slow - maybe that was the bar's fault - we ordered a second glass each when dinner arrived and we were mostly done by the time the glasses arrived. Finally, our waitress cleared my glass well before it was finished, without asking. Nothing disastrous, we just expect better from this restaurant.
