    We loved our dinner/table outside! The food and drinks were excellent, although the latter pretty $$$. The service was mixed: the waiter when focused was good, but mostly scattered. The atmosphere was our favorite!

    This restaurant has great potential, but the food is meh...and small. It needs to up its game. The quiche I could make better at home. The mimosas come in wine glasses, not in mimosa glasses and they're small and unremarkable. Maybe I'm spoiled because I just got back from France again, but I think they need new chefs.

    Bistro Vendome is so wonderful. We celebrated my wife's birthday with them this past Saturday. The space was perfection, cool breeze blowing thru the little urban haven of patio, nice garden next to us, branches from the tree over head. The service was spot on, Matt was tentative and prompt without being pushy. The steak tartar appetizer was delicious, neither of us had had it before. Our entrees were flat out remarkable! The skills are dialed in perfectly. My wife's Truite à la Meunière was quite possibly the best tasting fish I have ever tasted. My Confit de Canard with Palisade peaches was so crisp and flavorful. Both were delicious. The Lychee Ginger Entremet with Pineapple Sorbet tasted like a refreshingly chilled reprieve from summer. The Crème Brûlée was creamy and wonderful with a nice crisp broiled sweet crust on top. We loved our experience and we will definitely be back!!!

    Dishes were well prepared and plated. The chicken pate was delicious but need more toast pieces to enjoy the feast. Salads were disappointing and over dressed.

    We went here to celebrate a friend’s birthday. The meal and service were amazing. The only thing was that it was super hot in the restaurant - not sure if they were going for an authentic, European, no-air conditioning feel, but next time we go back will definitely be when it isn’t in the high 90s outside.

    Each of our four entrees, from steak to risotto to pork to duck, was delicious and beautifully prepared. And we ordered a French chablis that was just right--crisp, not sweet, lovely. We shared the chocolate souffle--delicious, and had very good decaf French press coffee. Our server was personable, and we chose to eat in a lovely tree-accented atrium outside the restaurant that was very pleasant and reduced the noise (for 4 retired people! ha ha). This is not an inexpensive restaurant so we go on special occasions. I highly recommend it.

    We had a reservation for a table but chose to sit in the bar. I wish we hadn’t done that, only because it added extra burden to Ben the bartender. It was pre-theater time and there were what seemed like a hundred people that showed up right at 5 o’clock who wanted bar beverages. He did a great job trying to take care of the entire restaurant and us, and we really enjoyed it. Next time we will try to plan our arrival at a better time simply to make it easier for the team. This is not our first time at Bistro Vendome and we really have enjoyed ourselves every time.

    Excellent food and friendly and attentive service. The Happy Hour (from 4 to 6 p.m.) appetizers and drinks were a good value and tasty. Our party of three all had the roast duck for the entree which was delicious. Loved the safety, shade and spaciousness of the outdoor walled courtyard setting. The courtyard sits back away from busy Larimer Street, and this made for a more intimate and quiet dining experience.

    We had a wonderful time, the patio was perfect, great weather and service. We are very sad to hear that Bistro and many of the other restaurants in Larimer square are closing and may not relocate, we had to get down there before the end of the year to enjoy great food again. We were disappointed mussels are not on the brunch menu anymore.

    Lovely ambiance and incredible food! We brought a guest from out of state and we were so happy we brought them here! Just off of Larimer Square, which is gorgeous and fun—and then into the courtyard for our brunch outdoors/wow! Beautiful flowers and European vibe. Simple menu with wonderful flavors. We will be back!

    We’ve been coming for years but in the past few months our visits have been underwhelming. Same great atmosphere, but it was hot last night (ceiling fans would be nice). Our server was okay, but like other restaurants these days, it as impossible for him to give us great attention with so many tables. The mussels, bread, frites and wine were outstanding, as always. The steak au poive was a bit too peppery, the pork tenderloin a little odd with cold Brussels sprouts, and the pea risotto was a strange combination of flavors.A new chef perhaps? Overall, it wasn’t quite the experience that we’ve loved before, and a bit expensive.

    Waitress dropped béarnaise sauce down my back and all over my dress and the restaurant basically said ‘sorry.’ The steaks had way too much pepper and the rest of the dishes were too salty/oily. Great ambiance but rest was not good. Don’t recommend

    I love Bistro Vendome, and I've been going to the restaurant for years. My experience that I recently had was a disappointment. The service was good enough, and I always enjoy the space. The food was less good. My friend who was celebrating her birthday and ordered the steak frites, as did another companion. They were thrilled. Perfectly prepared steak and delicious frites. I ordered the pork which was OK, but not great. The pork was dry and overdone. My daughter ordered the risotto with peas which was a boring completely uninteresting dish. It was a vegetarian dish that seemed to be nothing but an after thought to the chef. Under seasoned risotto with some peas tossed in was terrible.

    Excellent food, charming service, cute decor, convenient to downtown hotels. We had the duck rillettes and cheese plate to start. Perfect. Salads were fresh and tasty. For the main, we we had the mussels and the pork with Brussels sprouts salad. Both excellent. The desserts were lovely - the chocolate soufflé was divine. The ice cream flight was good (but I should’ve gone with the soufflé).
