We really needed this. Having dinner at Bistro Vendome is as close to a neighborhood Parisian bistro as we can get in Denver. We had great wine, great steak frites. The atmosphere is warm and comfortable, I always love the Provencal yellow walls and worn, perfect chairs. I haven't been in years, but we decided to make a habit of coming down (we only live three miles away) -- maybe next time in a snowstorm -- for mussels and red wine.
Wonderful.

We celebrated my wife's birthday, and had a wonderful evening. We sat inside, which was not crowded, her choice, because on a mild evening it was busier on the patio. We each had cocktails that were novel choices and very good. The menu had excellent variety, and she chose Steak Frites, which featured flat iron steak, nicely seasoned fries, and was as good as she's had. We like to choose different entrees, so I chose the Corvina, which was very good, but not "the best." When we return, a certainty, I plan to order the Moules Frites.

We had a wonderful experience and a delicious meal. Sat in the courtyard which was very charming and peaceful (about as close as you can get to France, here in Denver). The food was memorable ... moules, poulet roti, escargots, corvina salad special and creme brulee. The peach salad was really perfect! There were only two servers on duty due to staffing issues, but the one we had was extremely professional, knowledgeable and just friendly enough. What was impressive is that the rest of the staff teamed up well to make sure our needs were met (more bread, water, drink refills) if our server wasn't available. We will be back for sure. Too bad we're running out of time for dinner in the courtyard this year, though.

Fabulous French food in a wonderful bistro atmosphere. The steak tartare, duck confit and mushroom crepe were outstanding. We’d also like to give a shout out to the wait staff. They were knowledgeable, efficient and made us feel like we were dining, not just having a meal…and they’d been serving for 12 hours already!

This is the high-end Denver restaurant we visit the most at any price point. We’re here probably six times per year.

We love this place—the vibe, cocktails, wine, the food and the service.

Earlier tonight, we had a pre-appetizer of chicken liver mousse, then mussels,onion soup, steak frites, confit of duck and fish en croute.

For dessert we had creme brûlée and peach frangipane. The coffee, quite remarkably, was excellent too.

We’ll be back.

Bistro Vendome was a fantastic experience. We went for a date night in Denver and it was exactly the right vibe. The location is perfect. It's hidden in plain sight, just off the main strip — which is full of boutique shops/restaurants and has been blocked off for pedestrians a la New Orleans.

We requested to be seated in the courtyard, which is surrounded by red brick buildings and beautiful foliage. The scene is picturesque and there was actually a private photo shoot happening in a far corner away from the outdoor tables. There was live music we could hear in the distance from the main strip. It was a Friday night, and the singer nailed renditions of Dock of the Bay and Superstition, among other soul standards.

Our server, Aubrey, was attentive, informative and charming. We started with the Happy Hour mussels and a side of frites. Delicious. Order the frites, regardless of whatever else you get; they go with anything and everything. I had a blueberry Old Fashioned, which was a nice new-to-me twist on a classic cocktail. (So good I enjoyed a second, after-dinner round, as well.)

We ordered the duck confit and half chicken for entrees. The duck was highlighted by a plum sauce as well as fresh plum slices. William Carlos Williams would be impressed. It was phenomenal French technique on the duck — crispy outside and tender inside. She was blown away by the half chicken. Her review was "maybe the best" chicken dish she'd ever had. She joked she would be thinking about that chicken for months.

We ordered after-dinner drinks and probably overstayed our welcome, as it was getting busy and we were at a primo two-top outdoor table. But no one hurried us. We left, walked out of the idyllic courtyard and back to reality, taking a stroll around the hip Denver downtown neighborhood.

The next day, we met friends from Colorado Springs and told them they must eat at Bistro Vendome the next time they drive up to Denver. C'est magnifique.
