Dark wood, subdued lighting and French accents set the inviting mood. During the holidays, Bistronomic is festively adorned with garland, lights and red bows to make holiday get-togethers even more special. Whether guests seek an inviting holiday experience, social gathering or have business to conduct, Bistronomic's inviting seasonal and locally grown French food is the answer.

I come often because Bistronomic never disappoints. My favorite onion soup anywhere. It has cheese in it but it ether wonderful broth that has me coming back. The pates are delicious. They are my favorites. It is a comfortable place to spend time in as you sip a nice wine.

I absolutely LOVE Bistronomic - I have come here for Thanksgiving dinner for 2 years now, and have come for several dinners. The service is exceptional, and the hostess is absolutely wonderful and welcoming. The environment is cozy and inviting. The food is among the best in Chicago, and the cocktails are fantastic (unusually crafted too, I recommend the L'exotique, which is tequila with mango and jalapeno). I could not recommend Bistronomic enough, one of my favorite restaurants anywhere!

One of my favorite places in river north, feels like you’re stepping into a left bank French bistro. The food, cocktails, wine, ambience and service is always the best. Can’t wait to return

We had eaten at Bistronomic a couple of years ago and we were disappointed in the value for what we spent for the meal. In addition, we were seated close to the entrance to the restaurant which, considering the typical Chicago winter weather, was not a good place to be. This time I requested a table nowhere near the entrance! We were shown a table close to the bar, an acceptable location. It was early on a Sunday evening, so the place wasn’t crowded. I suspect if we had come a bit later, we might have been less comfortable. The tables are cited very close together. My two companions and I were very very happy with the wines and food we selected. Portions are generous and creatively prepared. Try their version of mussels!

Great bread, wine, food, atmosphere, and service. We rarely repeat restaurants because there are so many great restaurants in Chicago, but this deserve to be an exception. We will be back. Pre Fixe menu is a good deal. Even simple salads were superior.

The only disappointment was the Baked Alaska which was a bowl of vanilla ice with Carmel sauce and a square with meringue placed on top. NOT a real Baked Alaska!

My husband and I love this restaurant and make a point of eating there when we were are in Chicago. We've never been disappointed. The front of the house team is friendly and knowledgeable, and the chef and his team deliver exquisite, fresh flavors. I had the opportunity to introduce three of my good friends to this gem, and they are still raving about the experience.

Typically New Years Eve is a challenging time for the best of restaurants. Bistronomic found a way to provide their typically excellent food quality with a packed restaurant all night. From the front of the house to the kitchen I offer praise. Well done!

Food was fine but service was horrible. Took almost 20 min for the waiter to come to our table. When he did arrive he reaked of body odor. Just absolutely disgusting. Steak was overcooked but the rest of the food was delicious. The desert was so good. Overall though it was disappointing. Terrible service ruined the whole evening. Hostess was very nice though. Loved her.

Lovely place that transports you to the heart of Paris. It’s a small place so prepare for minimal but adequate privacy. The lady in the front is extremely welcoming and kicks off a wonderful evening. The gnocchi is amazing! Service is a little slower than traditional American places but on par with Parisian establishments.

Great last minute selection on the day after Christmas. Our server was very attentive and friendly, provided a very easy pace for our dinner, and recommended a very good bottle of wine that was reasonably priced. The food was excellent bistro fare. The room is nice, a bit busy at the front where we were placed. I would try to ask for the mid to back next time. The hostess was also very nice and stopped to ask how are meal was. I will return next time we are visiting Chicago. The location was very convenient to several of the better hotels off of the Magnificent Mile which is a plus.

Every time I dine here the food is always outstanding. My family and I enjoy the options and the presentation. However, when dining here on a holiday beware that they automatically add a 20% gratuity. This seemed like a sly move on the part of the restaurant as 1.) it caught us off guard as there was no mention of this when booking our reservation, nor was it listed on the menu, nor was it mentioned by our waiter, and 2.) it takes away the discretion of the dining patron to decide how the service was, thus negating the purpose of a gratuity, and 3.) it removes the incentive on the part of the server to provide good service.

Wonderful and creative food combined with impeccable service and elegant decor.

Of particular note are the cauliflower soup and duck confit for appetizers; the rack of lamb and short ribs were succulent and beautifully prepared.

We ate there on Christmas Eve and Bistronomic was perfect for this special occasion!
