Finally, a French restaurant that try to create a "buzz" with deafening, annoyed music. Plus real attention to food. Scallops were perfect. We're trying to find a reason to travel to Chicago soon just for dinner here. Magic evening.
Amazing costumer service! Waiter was extremely knowledgeable about menu. I will definitely be returning next time I’m in Chicago
Excellent experience! The food was awesome! The hostess’s where outstanding! The wait staff extremely friendly, and top of the line!! The chef frequently visits all tables and is very personable and friendly! We will be back!!
We had steak frittea. The frittea were good but the steak had a slimy texturew. The gnocchi appetizer was lukewarm and small. I think it’s overpriced and noisy and will not be returning.
The food was wonderful. We enjoyed great service without being intrusive. We were seated in a quiet area of the restaurant which made for a delightful experience. All four of us agree we had chosen a great restaurant and enjoyed the experience.
We ordered 3 different entrees--the short ribs, the steak frites, the Amish chicken--and four different starters--endive salad, celery soup, farm salad, and chicken liver pate all were flavorful, seasoned (and sauced) to perfection. Everyone raved about the meal. Servers were attentive and helpful. Also recommended highly: the desserts (hazelnut chocolate bars and baked Alaska). Wine by the glass was a trifle on the pricey side.
Service was fantastic. We felt so welcome from the moment we arrived. We will be back
If you’re at all claustrophobic, this is not the restaurant for you. Tables are way too close together and too many in the restaurant. Service was great when involved but way too slow. Three times another table’s food was brought to our table and we waited an exceptionally long time for each course. Even dessert was painfully slow. All that being said, the food is excellent. If I were to come back I would only do so if I could have one of the two seat tables against the south wall.
bistronomic is a delight. Intimate, charming and good food. I highly recommend this gem.
The food was delicious as it always is, however some major lapses in the timing of the service is a cause for concern.
Sunday evening. Loved the place. The food was excellent (mussels, onion soup, duck confit, salmon, creme brulee). Service (the bartender waited on us) was top notch.
Great spot for after Lookingglass theatre dining. Excellent service and food
The food, atmosphere and service were great! I recommend trying this place!
Very loud and tables way too close together
Came here with my friend on a rainy day. It's a really cozy and lovely bistro. We had steak and duck and it did not disappoint! I really like the duck is not too lean or too fat.
We had a nice intimate table in the back overlooking the bar and the rest of the restaurant. The server was great. Food was delicious.
We will definitely return
Always amazing food!
Great French food. Subdued bistro vibe. Thoughtful service.
This was a great restaurant. Great food, great service, wonderful little restaurant.
This was my third visit to Bistonomic and the restaurant is now 3 for 3 and next year when I'm back in Chicago we will go for 4 for 4. This is a terrific place to dine
An overall excellent dining experience. We will certainly be back.
I am not usually a big fan of French food, but having seen Bistronomic discussed on Check, Please, some friends and I decided to try it out.
The entry way is a bit awkward, but once you're past that, the restaurant has maximized its space quite well, with lovely, elegant décor. The service was very attentive, without being overbearing. All of us really enjoyed our meals, and were impressed by the quality of the food. Two of us had the Prix Fixe menu, while the third member of our group ordered a la carte. From the veloute - through the fish, short ribs and ravioli - to the desserts of Baked Alaska and chocolate hazelnut bars - we enjoyed every bite. We all look forward to making a return visit.
The food was excellent from start to finish. Entire staff was awesome from the moment we walked in.
Loved the food and the service was impeccable along with a great price point. We will definitely be back!
I thought both the food and service were very good. I found it to be reasonable price point for a “French bistro”. It was a little on the noisy side.
It was nice night out with some fun drinks and good food but not to crazy or over the top on anything.
Held a small baby shower brunch here and had a wonderful time. Such a nice and welcoming staff. Frank was the perfect server. Great time had by all!
Nothing special. Moving on.
Great food. Great service. Will be back again in the future.
Great restaurant, food was fabulous and we enjoyed our evening. Super service.
Cramped tables, couldn't hear ourselves think given the loud couplesittingrightnexttous. I've sat at the SAME table with family and friends, and had more elbow room than I had here.
Very average food and wine. Tiny table tops and enormous plastic covered menus which were cluttered and poorly designed. Difficult to even make a selection. Cluttered table top, stale bread.
Decided to visit here following Check Please coverage. The entire experience was well below expectation. Lots of other Bistro options in the city with more breathing room, better food and cheaper (and more delicious) wine. We won't be back and I would NOT recommend this to anyone I know.
Bistronomic restaurant is truly exceptional, not only because the food is always absolutely wonderful, from preparation to presentation, very pleasing ... but overall The restaurant is exceptional along with the hosts and servers. Must try!
Main entree linguine was bland.
First time. Excellent wine list. Great salads. Had mussels and duck. Wonderful food and experience.
50th Birthday celebration
What a wonderful bit of France in the heart of a great American city. Their menu is extensive and delicious. Staff is efficient and friendly. We're going back asap!!
A wonderful place for a relaxed dinner with a friend. Staff and food were both excellent!
Great True French Bistro. Wonderful food and attentive staff.
The meal was lovely and the service attentive but not overbearing. My nephew and I share a birthday so whenever I am in Chicago we try to grab a meal together. Another excellent choice.
Loved the food, service, energy, warmth, friendliness. The cheese selection was excellent. My husband's steak frite was one of the best I've tasted. The scallops were very good but I think I was having steak frites envy. I didn't give it five stars. A fun, fabulous restaurant we will definitely be going back to.
