Loved it here! Decided on this restaurant based on the amount of reviews on Opentable, and we were not disappointed. In our group of 4, we had the French Onion Soup (phenomenal), scallops, amish chicken, steak fries, and salmon - all were fantastic. Service was very good, and the chef came out to check on everyone, which was lovely.
10/10 would come back again :)

Thanksgiving dinner. Repeated this year, as last years experience was wonderful. This year was enjoyable, the food was great. However, the butchers cut was more like a short rib than filet mignon.
We were cramped in the back room, which I didn’t even know existed or I would’ve definitely requested we be in the regular dining area. All in all an enjoyable evening, but I learned a few things along the way for next time around.

The staff made me feel quite comfortable dining alone on Thanksgiving and with a disability, and a very polite hostess helped me flag down a cab. The smoked salmon salad and beef short ribs were excellent.

Great food & service. The restaurant was cramped. Tables where too close together & if was hard to get in & out of my table. The guest behind my chair struggled too. The noise level was too loud! My waiter couldn’t hear me & I couldn’t hear him.

My companion sent her wine back, and I was going to do the same, but her wine was my second choice. The meal was below average. The turkey was bland, the green beans had too much black pepper and the cranberry sauce was extremely tart. The patty that I assumed was turkey dark meat was a mystery best not encountered on Thanksgiving. The dessert was top-notch as was the service. The room is very small and felt claustrophobic.

We've dined at Bistronomic with friends before and chose the place tonight for a personal celebration. Service was impeccable with various people checking in from time to time to make certain all was going well--which it was. Our table location was comfortable with a banquet seat, giving us a bit more privacy. A warm crusty bread was served upon arrival, giving us a chance to look at the menu without being rushed. What is great for diners is the option of a pre-fixe dinner at $34 or $39, depending on the night. My spouse opted for the pre-fixe and was quite happy with the fish order while I went the ala carte route. The onion soup was delicious. Who can resist the classic bistro dish of steak frites? Almost perfect. The steak was as ordered, so no complaint there. I only wish there had been a bit more salad greens and fewer french fries. They're wonderful but covered half the plate. Dessert was interesting. Instead of the usual domed baked alaska, it was 3 scoops of vanilla ice cream with nuts, meringue, and a caramel sauce. We appreciated that our server brought plates and spoons so we could share. There is no question staff at Bistronomic are trying to make dining a positive experience. Best of all, prices are reasonable, making it a neighborhood staple.

I've eaten here for brunch in the past, but not for dinner. We went on the 23rd for our anniversary. The food was delicious - loved the homemade country pate, as well as their take on French onion soup with the mini croque monsieur on top! My filet with cognac cream sauce was great, the fries not overly truffled (as I've had with fries at other restaurants). My husband's delmonico steak was good as well as we shared their fun take on a baked Alaska. Our waiter was great with service and non-obtrusive. The chef even came out to check on everyone there too.

All in all a great evening, and would definitely go back again!

I celebrate my birthday with several different friends and every year manage to put Bistronomic in the rotation because it is consistently wonderful. It is such a chill atmosphere while you enjoy the delicious perfectly prepared food. Quite possibly the only reason I look forward to birthdays that are coming at a breakneck speed!!
Thank you, Bistronomic.

Very original plates. Very tastefull and delicious. The first part of the restaurant is quite noisy but they have a small room behind the bar that is more quiet. Whatever you chose is fresh and cooked with a high sense of excellence.

I made a reservation at this restaurant for a team dinner for a group of 9. Upon arrival, we were seated promptly and the staff provided complimentary coat check service. The service was good... a bit slow but understandable for such a large group. However, the problem came when we received our entrees. One of my colleagues had ordered the fish special of the day, which was supposed to be whitefish from Lake Superior. Instead a runner brought her a plate of tuna. Apparently, they had run out of whitefish in the kitchen and just decided that tuna would be a good substitution without even consulting with her. At this point, the rest of the table had received their plates so she settled for the dish. We were told there was a miscommunication between the kitchen and our server. She received many explanations but not one apology. At the end she was charged the full price for a dish she didn't order. No one offered to comp a dessert or even a glass of wine to make up for the mixup. For the most part the food was delicious and everyone seemed to enjoy their dishes but with so many great food options int he Chicago area, it is details like this that make the difference. I don't believe that any of the 9 of us will be returning to this restaurant.

Service was not up to its usual standard. The food (crepes) were cool when they arrived and it was difficult to get the attention of our server to let him know. I ate them anyway because we were pressed for time. One of my favorite places but this meal disappointed.
