If you go for brunch get the mussel's and the duck confit benedict. Best things on the menu.

Solid food. Felt a little rushed. Server kept clearing plates and at one point began to clear a plate that still had food on it. Very nice people but I just think the server maybe was new or inexperienced. Not a big deal.

The good. The mussels were excellent. The rest uninspiring. Trout was over cooked. Beef bourgonion (sp) was mostly tasteless. The waiter said the dessert was on the house due to birthday but I guess he meant the candle was on the house. My misunderstanding. Service was prompt but the waiter never checked on us after the food was served and the server never did bring salt and pepper. Maybe 2 stars instead of 3. Nice atmosphere.

The food was some of the best I have had! But the waiter had a Will Ferrell mask on which didn’t seem very professional.

As always, our latest meal at Bistro Vendome was incredible. From the mimosa to the pate, the main courses of Croque Madame and Quiche and the creme brulee. Everything was delicious. Another success!

The food was excellent, escargot, duck, trout, creme brûlée!!
Service was great, our server even took us to a cool spot near closing and snapped a picture for us.

Due to Covid seating, we were in a bit of a cold spot, but the multiple space heaters helped a lot.

Wonderful experience, would certainly go again and have told most of my friends to go all ready.

We had a great time at Bistro - the ambiance was quiet, the lighting was perfect, and the vibe was excellent for Valentine's Day. The wine selection was fantastic and they had many delicious varieties. Our service was a little off; we got our food very quickly and it felt like we were rushed. Additionally, their portion sizes were comparable to an upscale restaurant, but we were disappointed with their minimal variety on the menu. Overall would go to Bistro Vendome again, mostly just for drinks.

Used to be one of the best Denver had to offer. The COVID menu lacks variety and flavor. The risotto definitely needed salt! The mussels were bit too bad. Since we made a reservation in advance, we weren’t overtly thrilled about being in a cold draft hallway as opposed to their cute dining room. Definitely not what we had experienced here in the past.

Bistro Vendome has mediocre French food. The food wasn’t terrible however My husband is a true French man and he can make better food then what was served here. We also learned from the waitress that the cook was Venezuelan and not French. Also the service was terrible. If we needed something or were ready to order we had to wave at the waitress to get her attention. We will not be back.

We were seated a little close to others and that was a bit off putting, especially when the lady at the next table started coughing. And it was cold in the restaurant.

The Bistro is my wife and I’s favorite restaurant and we love coming for special occasions or before a show. The food is always exceptional and the dessert selections are always delicious.

The restaurant has great ambience and is a great place to spend time with family or that special someone.

Wonderful and intimate spot for happy hour or dinner. Their happy hour is Monday - Friday from 3-6pm. I really enjoyed the catching the end of happy hour as all wine glasses were half off. I tried the Bordeaux superior and it was superb and bold in flavor. They offer mussels on their happy hour menu and I recommend trying them. I found them to be so delicious and looked soaking up the juices with the accompanies baguette. We also ordered the steak tartare which was simply divine—highly recommend!

They had a special - Quiche Lorrain! Wow, it was absolutely perfect, the crust was really crisp and deeply browned! Incredibly creamy, just an unbelievable melding of ham, spinach, perfectly seasoned. The pommes frites dipped in a gastrique and herbs are about the best I've ever had.

A wonderful experience.

Bistro Vendome is the closest to a Parisian bistro here in Denver. If old, intimate, neighborhood restaurants in Paris are your thing, Vendome is perfect.

Perhaps they could turn the heat up in the dining room.....

Crispy Duck wasn’t very appetizing. It tasted like used oil. The Steak Frites was ordered medium, however, it came out medium-rare and wasn’t very appetizing in flavor either. This place was recommended to us, but we didn’t finish our meal nor did we enjoy the food.
