Delicious food, efficient friendly service, nice cozy atmosphere. We had escargots, winter salad, chicken liver pate, and spinach ricotta ravioli. All very tasty. And it always helps to hear a French accent from your server when you're at a French restaurant!

Always gracious and fine food. Wish there had been more seafood options. Missed seeing Chef Noguier or his wife—but it was a week night. Eddie took good care of us.

A very good restaurant in the Gold Coast. Like all places in this area, it isn't cheap; you can expect to pay more than you prefer. (Chicago's absurd sales tax rates don't help that either.) The menu is excellent, the food isn't too 'nouveau cuisine" to be edible, and the atmosphere is wonderful. I will definitely return!

We dined on a Monday night and there was a prix fixed three course menu. It was 34.00 per person. I chose the salmon as my entree and my husband had the mussels in a pasta dish. Both were excellently prepared although I felt that the salmon portion might have been a little small for a gentleman. My husband had an ample supply of the pasta. Service was excellent. The waiter was very attentive. Overall, the meal was a deal for the quality of the food.

We went with another couple (4 ppl total) for the NYE early seating. The menu looked Devine; the hostess was completely charming, the restaurant had a great vibe & energy. Throughout the meal, the food was delicious, with the only exception being a slightly undercooked ravioli appetizer, which we didn’t mention- it was all delicious. However, like other reviews have warned, service and pacing of the meal was poor. Being a set menu, they requested all selections at the start of the meal, which was fine, however one would think that would aid them in pacing tables through, particularly knowing there was another seating coming. However, there was lots of lag between courses and little check in from the server. Most notably, 40 minutes passed from when our dinner plates were cleared & my dessert wine was served (I was never told what it was), and when dessert actually came. Looking around us, it seemed it was a common experience and the restaurant was getting backed up with folks waiting for tables. After dessert, another 20 minutes for our check. Overall, we enjoyed the meal but 3 hours was longer than anticipated.... we don’t want fast food and wanted to enjoy our conversation, company, and meal, but this really dragged. we’d like to enjoy the food again, but given the uninspired & disinterested service, not sure.

Ambiance was nice and our waiter was good! The food was just WAY TOO salty. There were 3 of us: one ordered a burger, another ordered muscles, and I ordered the the ravioli. All of us were not happy with how salty the food was overall. The drinks were generously poured & a quiet enough place where we have conversations.

Out second trip to Bistronomic. Even though we had early reservations on a Sunday (pre-theater) and the restaurant was virtually empty, we had to seek out a waiter to get him to take our drinks order. And then he wanted our food order right away because groups were coming in (not a single other person had arrived). Aside from that, food was good (salmon was delicious), decaf coffee was strangely flavored, butternut squash soup had an unexpected (kinds good) cheese flavor. Not their best effort, overall, but I wouldn’t give up on the restaurant because of this ‘just okay’ experience.
