We have eaten here many times and it has always been excellent. The food this time was not as excellent as the other times. The steak tartar was too salty for my friend to finish.
We were told we would have duck beast, but we received the thigh and leg. The fish dish was not as flavorful as we expected. The pork tenderloin was the winner at our table; it was excellent.
The wine our waitress recommended was a very good choice. She was very attentive.

For the price, the food left a lot of be desired. There was nothing that popped out as exceptional. Flavor was good, but not extraordinary and at $30/plate I expect to leave feeling impressed.

Everything we ate was exceptional. The pate and duck confit were outstanding and the truffle fries are fantastic. The wine selection is excellent and although the menu is limited, every dish is well prepared. Service has always been exceptional. This is an excellent choice for a date or a special occasion dinner.

Food was delicious!! Sat on patio. Server was not not particularly friendly and not very forthcoming when my husband asked about a menu item. This server also had dirty fingernails, which - besides being disgusting for someone serving food - was surprising for a restaurant of this caliber. It was our 25th anniversary, but the restaurant didn't seem to care - not a huge deal, but where's the love?

French cuisine that is well-thought out and delicious. Very nice ambience; if you choose outdoors seating you are in an enclosed courtyard. Servers are well trained.

Have been to Bistro Vendome several times and have generally been impressed with the food and ambiance.
The food last night was decent but not, at all exceptional. Onion soup was very disappointing and steak frites was fair.
Wait staff was attentive and wine was good but overall experience was fair and disappointing. Place could use an overhaul but with menu and decor. Probably would not go back

I can honestly say we have never had a more tasteless, bland disappointment of a meal in our lives. We were so looking forward to a wonderful evening out and the ONLY thing that had any taste of flavor was champagne and a lager. Very sad and a complete waste of time and money.

Wonderful brunch. Quiche and a croque madame. Both were delicious! The quiche could have been a little larger. Not sure the the price reflected the portion size.

Went for brunch and enjoyed everything. The staff was friendly and professional. The food was delicious and the bottomless mimosas were made with care.
Ambiance was great beautiful little bistro tucked away in Larimer Square lovely outdoor garden seating. Bistro is designed in style of a Paris Brasserie. Charming and beautiful.

Patio seating at the start of the Memorial Day weekend a delight -- cool breezes and noise from other diners was minimal. Service was attentive, but not intrusive. Our meals were delivered promptly, and appropriately hot. We were not rushed and had a wonderful anniversary dinner.

It pains me to write this review. I want to stress that I believe Bistro Vendôme, like so many other excellent restaurants, is currently struggling to recover from the pandemic, shutdowns, layoffs, and now the scarcity of available trained restaurant staff. Many people are still choosing to take Covid unemployment payments rather than return to work.

I lived in the Denver area for 25 years, and Bistro Vendôme became a favorite restaurant from the first time I visited. The authenticity and consistent high quality of their menu offerings never faltered. Their service staff was always professional and attentive.

Eventually I moved away from the Front Range, and I hadn't been to Denver in about 3 years until this week. I was really looking forward to dinner at Bistro Vendome. Unfortunately, it fell far short of my expectations. Our server was super-friendly and very willing, but she was stretched attending to a large number of tables. As a result, we weren't served bread or the amuse-bouche. It was only after we inquired as to whether bread was still served that those were delivered. Our entrees were sub-par in flavor, seasoning, and execution. The riz rouge side that came with the roast chicken was undercooked. The mussels were very overcooked and the broth in which they were served was flavorless. I've ordered mussels here repeatedly, have never been disappointed. We typically use bread to soak up the broth, but this time it wasn't worth the effort.

As I said, it pains me to write such an unfavorable review. I know the owner of this restaurant is not happy to fall so short of expectations -- especially hers. I have every confidence and hope that as our restaurant industry returns to normal, Bistro Vendôme will once again be able to provide the high quality food and service on which their reputation is based. I know this has been a very difficult time for restaurants, and in the future I will once again enjoy an excellent meal and service at Bistro Vendôme.

Thank you Aaron for an excellent evening with our good friends. I really feel like we were special guests given the wonderful waitstaff, amazing food (lots of mussels and duck lovers here) and great wines. Everyone was complimenting me for choosing Bistro Vendome but obviously Aaron and his team were responsible for our lovely evening. We will all be back!

A gem in downtown Denver. Transports me to a Parisian bistro complete with a lovely courtyard, fine French wine, and delightful dishes. So happy this place has survivived, and despite the last year we have had has managed to retain its ambience and commitment to the fine, French-dining experience.
