Bistro Vendome Ratings and Reviews
The overall experience was horrible. Went for an anniversary dinner, the food was not close to up to par, we ordered steak and the steak was mainly all fat no meat. We waited for who knows how long for our meal, just to be disappointed. I I ALSO CHECKED MY BANK STATEMENTS AND THERE WAS AN EXTRA $20 added onto my bill ( I'm assuming as more of a tip which I had already left) it was a 69 dollar tab that ended up being close to $90 dollars, THIS WILL BE DISPUTED AND BROUGHT TO THE ATTENTION OF THE OWNER.
This is our third time at Bistro Vendôme (this time with friends from the San Francisco Bay Area). Always enjoyable, although part of our order was messed up. That was a first time for us at this restaurant. Our waiter, however, was sincerely apologetic, which helped greatly. And the presentation, quality, and flavor of the meal was wonderful. So when we are next in a French mood during a special occasion, Bistro Vendôme will still be at the top of our go-to restaurants!
Took my husband out for a beautiful birthday dinner. Amazing as always! We have always been treated exceptionally well and the food is fabulous. The setting is romantic and intimate yet casual enough that jeans and a baseball cap doesn't make you feel awkward. I can't wait until we come back.
As always Bistro VD did not disappoint. The service was stellar and the food is absolutely fantastic! The food is exquisite and they are using new ways of doing dishes which constantly amazes. The steaks are sublime and the Braised Beef is superb. If you get the chance take it on Bistro Vendome!
We have dined at Bistro Vendome for several years and return because we thoroughly enjoy the dining experience - weather permitting outside dining is delightful. Staff is efficient, friendly, and courteous; food can be counted on to be well prepared and tasty; wine list is overpriced!
My husband & I dined here last year and loved it so much, so returned when in town this year. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed. We both had salads to start, which were delicious and good sized servings. But when my main course arrived, which was the pasta with leeks (I see it is no longer on the menu), I was shocked to see barely the bottom of the large bowl it was served in was covered with food. I should have mentioned it, but did not want to complain and ruin our one evening in Denver. The dish was delicious, by the way, but so scant it would have been laughable, except it was $26. My husband had the whole fish, which was presented as if it was still up and swimming (kind of creepy to me, but I lean towards vegetarian--he thought it was cool!) and liked the dish. We did mention the sparseness of the pasta dish to our server at the end, but she didn't respond. So...as a word of caution, if you order pasta, tell them upfront you want a full serving! Otherwise, the restaurant looks like a small French café...but be sure to insist on an inside table...the ones in the 'courtyard' are actually in a hallway between a small groups of shops.
Our waitress seemed a bit distracted. She did well, but her timing was off.
The duck on my Salade Frisée was so dry and tough I could barely chew it. Halibut was o.k. Otherwise many of their stock dishes remain reliable, especially trout and whole fish, the onion soup, and steak.
Our food was delicious and our server was very nice. I wish our food would have come from the kitchen a bit faster but everything was delicious and well worth the wait. In my reservation I expressed I would like a patio if available (normally they don't take reservations for the patio). Not only did the hostess set a table outside for us, she also set one inside since it was a chilly morning. I appreciated the extra thought in making sure our party was comfortable.
Bistro Vendome did a lovely job hosting my birthday dinner with 12 guests. Above all else my favorite part about celebrating here was the service. The staff was friendly and attentive and they had great attitudes. My friends were happy with their meals and the setting was lovely. 5 stars.
It's nice, I go to France every year so it did a pretty good job compared to most places at recreating that experience for me. I had the friend I was with imagine she was in Paris as I plan to go there with her in the future. I appreciated this moment. Go here if you want a hint of France. Though if you're French you may not find it special, I'm sure many Americans do.
This place was lovely. The ambiance takes you out of Denver to a little French bistro. The service was very nice. We were there for brunch and wanted to order the mussels, but they had not gotten their seafood shipment for the day, so we ordered other items. As soon as the shipment came, without us asking, they prepared an order of mussels for us and did not charge us for the dish. They mussels were OUTSTANDING. If you order one thing on their menu, that should be it. Overall, it was a lovely meal, and we will be back.
The waitress was very good. She knew the menu and let us know about extra spicy dishes and nuances about our selections. This was a pop up restaurant called, "Ultreia" which is owned by the same chef and will debut in Union Station in about a month. The chef was very visible and asked us about our food. We ate outside and it was a very pleasant evening.
Lovely restaurant, outstanding service. Reasonable prices. The salad du marche was heavenly, also the mussels. My husband had steak frites; the steak was very nice. The frites are interesting flavored.
We were pre-theater, and our server took good care to make sure we were done on time.
My wife and I chose to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary at Bistro Vendome. I sent a note along with my reservation stating what we were celebrating and about our love for the restaurant years ago. We hadn't been to Bistro Vendome for about 9 years, but decided to come back after a recent trip to France. The restaurant is very charming and accurate of what you'd expect to find in a traditional French Bistro. The food was terrific, certainly did not disappoint there.
What did disappoint though, was the service. Like I said, as part of the reservation I mentioned the importance of the evening to us and asked for a good table which wasn't crowded. When we arrived for our reservation the hostess pulled it up on the computer and I saw my note very clearly on her screen. She didn't even read any part of it before seating us in a table directly next to a party of 4 and surrounded by other full tables. Now, I understand that most tables are fairly close together at this restaurant. With that said, there were two tables across the dining room that were both more spacious, and neither were sat. We sat at the table she took us to and hoped to forget about that aspect in favor of beginning our night of celebration.
The server did not greet us first, but another member of the wait staff, rather friendly. Once our sever did arrive she was not very friendly, didn't seem very patient during the entire evening. Seemed annoyed as we presented questions about wines or menu items. Seemed very ready to get our main courses ordered although we had quite a bit of our charcuterie remaining and hadn't had it long. Slow to return to the table after our food arrived to check on it. My wife and I are both from a restaurant background, we did not feel like her service was elevated as we would expect of a place offering food at these prices.
No mention was ever made about our anniversary and I feel as though even if it wasn't a special occasion I'd still feel shorted by the service
