A wonderful dining experience during the trying COVID days. Personally I prefer not to feel like I am shouting when I am having a meal with friends. I guess that is one good thing about COVID precautions (got to find the silver lining in things you know). We were seated outdoors with heaters and while it was heavily raining, we were very comfortable and dry in the enclosed area.
Briefly I had to go indoors and found that the main dining room was certainly louder. If that is what you want, try to arrange an indoor table.
However, the food was absolutely delicious and perfectly prepared. I had the lamb special and my wife had the white fish special. Desert and wine were perfect compliments to our meal. Our waiter was friendly, attentive and helpful. The service was excellent. We will certainly be going again.

Absolutely delicious French food. Must try the French onion which includes ham and the steak with au Poivre (pepper sauce).

If you’re a French speaker or even want to try your hand they know French and are kind to those new to the language.

We went for the Easter Dinner menu that was advertised on their website only to not have the menu presented when we arrived. The server was accommodating and did speak to the chef who prepared the Rack of Lamb as I desired. However the service was slow, and the Beet Salad was mediocre. The beets did not taste as fresh as the beets I had at another restaurant the day before, and the items did not even have a slight chill as one would expect for a cold item. The lamb I received was tender and cooked perfectly, however the eggplant puree and ratatouille below had a sour taste to it. The fries that accompanied my mother's steak seemed to have been fried in old oil. Nothing was atrocious, but certainly not impressive. I enjoyed my lamb, but I cannot say I will be returning in the future.

Overall a good experience. The service was a little slow. The food was delicious and we loved the French accents some of the staff had. The Caesar salad, onion soup, duck breast, lamb shank were all quite good. The cheesecake was deliciously creamy. I did not like that there’s one unisex bathroom with two stalls. You could potentially be in the bathroom with someone of the opposite sex. I went in by myself and locked the door behind me.

Mimosas were basically water - no bubbles and very little OJ. Service was a little slow. Food was ok but nothing spectacular.

Pros:
Good service
Very nice brunch dishes (smoked salmon eggs benedict & prime short rib braised in duck fat with potatoes)
Cons:
Marginal coffee, not hot
Seated in the lobby of the Loyola Student Center - not the atmosphere we were expecting, especially as it was still very quiet in the restaurant when we arrived
Ideally would have rated our experience a 3.5

First time going to Bistronomic, we enjoyed the food and service. Do wish the hostess would've seated us somewhere else, but don't know whether they gave option between outside covered seating or inside dining room. My husband and I did the Restaurant Week menu and it was wonderful.

The food was amazing, no doubt. The service was also great. My biggest issue was how crowded the place was. Things weren't even 3ft apart. People were constantly walking past us. We're still in a pandemic, so it was a bit claustrophobic for that. They also had a bit of a mix up trying to locate our reservation, but we were sat quickly and served on a timely manner.

Great dinner out - romantic and delicious. Wine was pricey...also, chocolate diplomate was a bit disappointing. But everything else (chicken, beef, appetizers) was amazing and very fairly priced.

We went to Bistronomic during Restaurant Week so our experience probably wasn't typical. We were seated right away, but then it took 15 or 20 minutes to get our beverages and it was exactly an hour after being seated that we got any food. The waitperson was courteous but this was ridiculous. And there were only two items on the brunch menu for Restaurant Week, and they were out of the one we wanted. Imagine: only two items on the menu and they ran out of one. They provided a similar substitute, but it's not what we wanted. Rather ordinary pancakes with a few blueberries were not the orange French toast with Grand Marnier sauce that we had counted on.

We had a delightful repast from the restaurant week prix fixe menu with some additions (loved the added onion soup!). Our server was very attentive and did a wonderful job explaining our choices, the rest of the staff was very courteous and responsive. The chef/owner came out a couple of times to check on us, which was a great touch and appreciated. First time experience and will definitely come back!
