Most enjoyable dining experience in a long time. Rachel is an amazing server and Matt is a fabulous host. Food was delicious - authentic French from the escargot to the bouillabaisse and, the grand finale, chocolate souffle. Delicious cheeses. Robust list of french wines. Such a great experience on so many levels, we went back the next night, sat at the bar and ordered wine and chocolate souffles.

This was our first Larimer Square dinner and it was an excellent experience. Our server Aaron was terrific and helped us as newbies with our choices. We started with 3 nice choices of wine by the glass coupled with moules, frites and chicken liver pate. Excellent bread. Our friends split a roast chicken, my wife had the Bouillabaisse and I had the Roquefort steak with frites. The Chi ken was outstanding, the steak done perfectly, the Bouillabaisse was tasty but had less broth than we expected and less seafood than we expect. The desserts were great. Blueberry frangipani tart and the pavlova. Our friends raved about the overall experience and we thought it was wonderful. Prices are half NY French restaurants so we thought the value high. We loved all the staff. We highly recommend Bistro Vendome.

Nice French Oasis in Larimer Square in downtown Denver. The Duck salad was delicious. The bread is to die for. Eurocentric wine list.

My wife and I had a very enjoyable Mother’s Day dinner on the patio. Megan was our waitress and she provided us with great service and answered our questions expertly. I had the pork cutlet entrée and it was delicious. We have dined at bistro Vendome numerous times and the food the service and the ambience has stayed at a high-level which keeps us coming back. It’s one of our standbys

Bistro Vendome was perfect for our birthday/ Mother’s Day celebration. We had a cozy table in the wine cellar, away from the hustle and bustle of the main dining room. We ordered a variety of breakfast and lunch entrees with drinks and although we’re a picky group, all entrees received rave reviews! Our server was helpful and friendly. Perfect! It is still my favorite brunch place.

Came for brunch. Food was excellent, though the service at times just a little slow. Surprisingly for brunch is somewhat limited selection of drinks that were non-alcoholic, however overall an excellent meal.

It was our first experience at Bistro Vendome and we were so very content. It was refreshing to be able to enjoy a meal without anyone trying to hurry us out the door. Delicious food and drinks, beautiful atmosphere, and wonderful service. My partner is European and he said it felt like home. Thank for the most lovely date night.

We received an email flyer about the coq au vin special Thursdays nights in April. We hadn't been to the Bistro in a while, so this is what brought us into the restaurant. We made an early reservation (before 7pm) and unbelievably, the waitress tells us they are out of coq au vin. Also, the wording on the email flyer implied 1/2 price bottles of wine, until you read below it that this was only for different nights. Took almost 40 minutes for some in our party to get their wine (30 minutes for a drink). Waitress virtually never came around and didn't bother to tell us about the soufflé taking 20 minutes - had already been then about two hours to get through dinner, so we weren't about to wait another 20 minutes for dessert. Do not get the duck salad - it is awful; mostly cooked fat served on top of a very small amount of "greens" or weeds; about 2 small bites of meat. Steak and frites are still good and the cooked duck dish was ok. The Chef did send out a fantastic crème brulee, but it was a sad night at the Bistro for us. We've been there many times before, but will probably not go back.

For my bride’s 75th birthday we 9 family members and friends were treated to a private room with wonderful ambiance, service, cocktails, wine and food. We got a surprise when the bill revealed 1/2 prices on the bottles of French Pinot Noir we’d consumed. Megan was a fabulously friendly and efficient server. This experience, a value given The Bistro’s competition, will bring us back. But we knew that when booking! Thanks Jennifer for your exceptional imagination and pricing.

Our reservation was at 10:30 so we are probably not a good judge for noise. The food is excellent and the portions are appropriate. Everything was very flavorful. The service was attentive but not overbearing. We even found a free spot at a meter. Only a few craft cocktails but an extensive wine list.

We went because we had received an email promoting their 16th birthday, with a good deal for duck confit for $16.
& $16. Bottles of wine, so we had a great value in every way.
We hadn’t been there in awhile, so we’re pleasantly surprised by the rearranging of the dining room (it used to be somewhat claustrophobic due to tight fitting tables, etc.) we’ve always loved the food and all, so will be back.
