great food and service, and never rushed at all. Love their steak frites, and the frech onion soup was great with the addition of mini croque monsieurs on top (it was part of a tour de france menu). We have gone many times, never a bad meal or service.

We enjoyed our dinner, although the room where we sat inside was awfully dark. I think they could use more servers; our servers were very nice but we had to wait awhile for each course.

Both food and service were excellent. Food was well prepared and of high quality. Loved their fries and the tuna special was of high grade and cooked superbly. The baked Alaska we shared for dessert was most delicious. Waiter was knowledgeable and attentive but not intrusive. We also appreciated the chef/owner? Stopping by. We definitely plan to return.

As my wife and I are French, we thought that we would have a French dining experience at Bistronomic. Unfortunately, this restaurant in no way resembles French dining or anything that you would find in France. My wife had a steak that had so many nerves and tendons in it that she had to “rip” it as opposed to cutting it. The french fries were horrible and resembled something more like football stadium fries two hours after having been cooked. McDonalds has better french fries…maybe the chef can subcontract the restaurant’s french fry making to McDo. I had an Amish chicken which consisted of three pieces of meat on a few vegetables. It was “ok” at best (trying to find something good to say). Clearly would not order it again.

In terms of service, the hostess who seated people was nice and polite. On the other hand, on two occasions, watching the chef walk around the restaurant and yawn while listening to him exhale was just disgusting.

We did not order dessert or have a coffee as we usually do. We just wanted to get out of the restaurant. Obviously we have no intention of ever dining there again.

The drink's, and the appetizers were great.
Unfortunately the Beef Bourguignon had a golf ball sized piece of fat on it, we also got the duck breast, the fat wasn't rendered well and was pretty stiff.
As far as I know the rest of the large plates we ordered came out well.

The service was excellent, however the food left something to be desired. Nothing was bad but everything was pretty boring and seemed to be an ingredient or two away from being worth the hefty price tag. Tuna tartare, beet salad, gnocchi, Delmonico (this was the lowlight of the meal) and frites, a bottle of wine, two glasses of white, two glasses of champagne, 3 small pieces of cheese, a creme brulee and tip was $400. The sidewalk seating was nice, but also right next to the street. Everyone that worked there was very pleasant but I would not go back.

The charcuterie (5) was outstanding.

the rest of the food was hit or miss. The Beef Bourguignon was good. The salmon and steak nothing to write home about -- just ordinary. The Coq Au Vin was a caricature of the traditional one, nothing but a couple pieces of chicken breast. It should not to be even called Coq Au Vin because customers will order it expecting the famous traditional French dish. I understand that they probably wanted to modernize the dish, but the traditional one does not need to be modernize. It's traditional taste make make it a classic.
The dessert was the best part of the meal.

Bistronomic is a favorite of ours, always wonderful French food, excellent staff. Last night was a festive Bastille Day celebration with live music. Full to capacity, the beautiful Lulu was ever gracious at accommodating a surge of guests and was kind to place us at our favorite table. Food never missed a beat, came out hot and perfectly cooked, with Chef Martial and his entire staff working seamlessly to make every diner happy. Another wonderful night at Bistronomic!

I sat at my table at 7pm. It took the waiter 30 minutes to come take my order. I ordered onion soup and beetroot salad. Food arrived at 8pm. The onion soup was SO SWEET. I know onions are sweet but this was as sweet as a dessert. The beet salad was good.
