Fabulous chef. We were very happy with every dish we ordered. It was hard to decide so we will definitely go back.

    Something has changed in the food quality since the pandemic. The duck was a bit dry. I'd try experimenting with a whole new menu so that people don't compare it to what it used to be.

    Charming, unsuspected French excellence. Food - divine with great selections; bravo to the chef. Wine - off the chart plentiful state of the art choices, as patrons replicate a paring wine for each course. Ambiance - small, intimate, as candles dance on tabletops and patrons sneak a conversation with each other. Waiters - cream of the crop, as owner-operator shares his love of all aspects of his establishment and his assistant sings happy birthday in Polish. It's more than a meal - it's entertainment!

    C'est Si Bon! Bistro + Vins takes a very European approach to dining -- small, intimate setting, quiet enough that you can talk comfortably with your dinner companions, good food, and no rush to get you out the door, so you can take your time and enjoy the meal. We did the Prix Fixe menu with wine pairings, which provided multiple appetizers in addition to the main course and dessert. Portion size on the appetizers was reasonable, so despite the number of courses we were pleasantly satiated by meal's end, rather than stuffed to the bursting point. Every course was excellent, as was the wine. All in all, and great experience; we'll definitely be back!

    Unfortunately, we were very disappointed in the meal. Their “bouillabaisse Classique” was definitely not bouillabaisse more like fish broth (no fish) and very bland. The Duck confit was a small leg that was very dry. Small portions on everything - appetizers and entrees
