Loved the duck and the salmon. It's slightly pricey but definitely worth it. The garden outside is beautiful and gives you all the European feels.

The only thing to complain about at all is that the seating was very uncomfortable, no cushions, & for those of us who are kinda skinny is very hard to sit on metal thru a entire luxurious meal.
Otherwise...lovely

Great French brunch in a peaceful setting. Croque madames, crêpes, etc. We are outside, but the interior is charming too. Larimer Square has lots of cute shops.

Lovely place to catch up with some friends who had moved away; waitstaff were attentive, but we were never rushed and we lingered over the last bites of delicious food.

Amazing food and service. The outdoor seating is a must. Just be sure to get the cheese appetizers asap because they sell out quickly!

Wonderful evening. Delicious. Very French right down to no ice water on a 95 deg evening. One of the best patios in Denver.

We hadn't been to Bistro in a while...the food is always exceptional. Our waiter was a little distracted and not as attentive in making sure we received everything we ordered. We sat outside on the patio and it was lovely.

I was visiting my son , I live in OKC he lives here in Denver.
The host wasn’t very welcoming or friendly but he did, if a bit begrudgingly, accommodate our request to sit outside. Our server was lovely. My son’s pork chops were delicious, the pate was wonderful. The salad and my mussels were so so.

Nice atmosphere, really good food but terrible service. Head waiter took our order, opened bottle of wine, and brought the check. That was the only time we saw him. Other staff helped out. No one asked how our food was. No one refilled our drink order. Main course was brought with salad and appetizer plates still on the table.
Not sure I would go back.

Marvelously serene and peaceful courtyard. Everything else, meh. Food totally lacks personality. Crepe appetizer was nondescript. Salmon was uninspired. Steak ordered rare came medium-rare tending to medium. Wine selections mediocre. All in all, would not recommend.

We had not visited in awhile and the meal did not disappoint. Our server was friendly. Only knock was that we sat outside and could smell the trash from the alleyway. On a cooler evening this might not have been an issue. It was not the restaurant's fault but it did negatively impact our evening.

Everything was fabulous. Our party of 4 - 2 couples - one from the West Coast and the other from the Midwest, met in Denver for a long weekend mini-reunion. Bistro Vendome was our first night's dinner. The food and service were excellent. The food was creative and we especially loved the melon salad! The atmosphere is lovely, and even though the restaurant was busy, it was quiet enough to allow to us to talk without having to raise our voices! We highly recommend Bistro Vendome!

One of our favorites. It is set up for both young blood and us older folks. The quiet and ambience suit us, the food and fun address all. Unfortunately too many places have forgotten there are still a lot of us older folks that appreciate the quieter and slower pace Vendome offers and many of the gen X and gen Y'er are beginning to groove to. These folks nail it!

Excellent food and service. The peppercorn steak was outstanding and the duck was excellent. Best fries ever, anywhere. Fried frog legs needed more seasoning. Our pavlova dessert was also very good and the restaurant threw in a complimentary creme brulee for my wife's birthday.

Our server was excellent. Great personality and very knowledgeable about the menu and wines. Our son has a mild fish allergy and she thought he might react to the frog legs. She ended being right, the type of frog that is eaten has a common protein with fish that is known to cause an allergic reaction. Our dessert was comped due to his reaction, which was unnecessary, but appreciated.

Great brunch. Good service. Eggs Benedict had way too much duck on it. Charcuterie platter was awesome. Crochet madam was delicious, as was the quiche. Overall a very good experience.

We ordered just about everything off of the appetizer menu. None of it disappointed. Their tartare, bone marrow, escargots, charcuterie were all amazing and met or exceeded what those dishes should be.
Service was attentive and friendly.
Wine menu covers all the bases.

My friend and I were celebrating our birthdays. We sat on the patio even though the temperature was in the high 90s. It was very pleasant because of the shade tree and the umbrellas. This is one of my favorite restaurants in Denver. Their attention to detail is outstanding!

This was my 4th visit to Bistro Vendome but the service was not as good. Our waiter never returned after being seated so we got a variety of waiters that night, service was a bit slow. Food was a bit cold and didn't taste as good. Seemed like other tables got more attention than we did on a night the restaurant wasn't that busy.
