Excellent Brunch! Wonderful, cheerful and friendly staff, yet not bothersome or rushed. Beautiful atmosphere in a gorgeous building. Truly enjoyed our Brunch- our table had lavender French toast, vegetable quiche, Benedict, and salmon toast all fantastic! The French press was an added treat.

This is a perennial favorite of mine. The food is quintessential French, but excellently executed. Its the epitome of a Parisian Bistro, even more so than some of the bistros I visited in Paris just three months ago. The service is top notch. A friend and I were visiting, celebrating both of our birthdays. We hadn't mentioned it to our servers, but she noticed our gift exchange and offered us both a complimentary dessert. When we mentioned that we were (truly) full but the dessert menu looked amazing -- she brought us both passes for free dessert on a future visit. It's subtle attention to detail and care that earns 5 star service. Come for brunch and definitely visit in the Spring and enjoy the beautiful courtyard patio!

Fantastic food as always. Great spot for a date night. Service could be better as we had to ask for bread and more water, but food was brought out in a timely manner. Have had dinner here multiple times and will absolutely return again.

The food and service were excellent. But, I must admit to being disappointed that there was no recognition of my wife's birthday, although I had provided that info when I made the reservation. That aside, I am sure we will return in the future.

One of Denver’s best restaurants. Always excellent service. Great food. The staff even prepared a birthday card for our 14-yr old daughter as we were there to celebrate her birthday. Never a bad meal at Bistro Vendome.

The salad with pieces of squash,kale and pomegranate was very good. The chicken was excellent so tender and flavorful as were the mashed potatoes. My husband had the striped bass and enjoyed that also.

The table ordered the charcuterie board, mussels appetizer, duck and beef entrees. All delicious. Very much recommend the mussels. Regret not having space for dessert. Cute and comfortable environment with just the right level of service.

We booked a reservation for brunch the day after valentine’s. If you can, sit by the windows, it’s so romantic. We got the quiche Vendome and the croque monsieur. Comes with a side of greens. The dressing is delightful. Coffee is great too.

Valentine’s Day dinner for four people. Very good service, great cocktails, but the food was underwhelming and extremely expensive with minimal value. Scallop entrée with three scallops for $28, steak Frites beef was tough, but charcuterie board was great!

Bistro Vendome has become mine and my husband’s favorite place to eat when we visit dinner. We love the food! Every dish that we’ve tried has been out of this world. Compared to French restaurants in other large cities, this one beats them all!

An old favorite, I was a little surprised this time - must have been an off night in the kitchen. The steak was undercooked and not warm enough to melt the Roquefort butter, the pate dry, the glass of wine just a few sips. However, the desserts were incroyable, the service terrific, and the atmosphere fun and French. I will be back, but hoping the food is better next time.

This place is special.... We both ordered cocktails which were both very good. We started with Duck Rillette which was amazing, Soupe a l'Oignon and the Salami du jour. Everything was tasty. My wife had the Boeuf Bourguignon and loved it... I ordered the Steak frites with the Bearnaise sauce.. medium rare and it was perfect. Probably the best steak I've ever had. After dinner we shared the chocolate souffle which is decadent and probably also the best souffle I've ever had. We will be back, many times I'm sure, in the future. The prices were not bad at all given the astounding depth of flavors and such great classic french recipes. Our new favorite place in Denver!

I have loved this restaurant. Its design makes me feel how I imagine a country kitchen in Bordeaux. On past visits, the escargot, bread basket, butter, wines, service, cheeses, and entrees were all great. On this past visit, it was all ...very good. The duck entree, which both our servers lauded as a guest favorite, was nice but not extraordinary. The meat was tender and the garnish was a nice compliment but he duck skin was not crispy enough for my liking. The bread was 'meh'; nothing celebrating French boulangerie. The butter could have used some... j'en sais quoi. The glassware in which the champagne was served was short and thick-walled; not something from which I want to sip bubbly.

The ambiance is quite romantic. I would still recommend it for a cozy dessert or date night.

Maybe. It was busy. Our server was nice but overall she was too busy. The duck was dry. No crepes on the menu and just not up to par with the ambiance. It was okay. I might go back for brunch.

We scheduled a girl’s night for dinner and drinks, and we love French cuisine. We tried Bistro Vendome and had such an amazing experience! We had the escargot, mussels, scallops and the duck.. we had drinks to compliment the food and everything was flavorful and inspiring! Coffee after dinner was French press and delicious, and the service was amazing. We are already planning to go back!

Great meal. Steak and Frites were excellent. My husband had the chicken and risotto special which was also great. Those two entrees and a tasty bottle of Sancerre made for a memorable dinner. We will be back.
