    The food was good and fresh. The only thing missing was a bit more seasoning. But overall the manager and servers were very nice

    The French Bistro is a unique Argentinian style steak house with a French twist as the name would imply. However the menu covers a broad array of special dishes lending to the extremely engaging owners talent for handling all styles of cuisine. From the broad selection of appetizers covering both the expected (escargot) and unexpected (Picada Sharing Board) to excellent onion soup, the main courses cover a complete spectrum with six unique creations of filet mignon, many excellent beef creations, lamb chops, multiple tender chicken dishes, pork and a broad selection of seafood. Beyond the excellent flavor, it's the portions that blow you away, as each of us received not one but two cuts of filet mignon each, with one at least 10 and the other 12 ounces or more. We had enough for dinner again the following night. Leave room for desert, particularly the Crepe Caramel Flambe with Rum....which is to die for. Honest to God! Possibly the finest desert we've ever had.......bar none. All this and at a very reasonable price. Visit soon before this moderately busy family owned restaurant is discovered by all and scoring a reservation requires calling weeks in advance. Friendlier owners and servers you will not find at any price. Thank you for addressing our request for a special table for my Wife's special birthday!

    The food was delicious, and my bride loved the vibe. Beautiful decor, helpful service even though we sat in the distant corner. The one problem was that we mentioned on the reservation that it was the last day of our honeymoon, and no one congratulated us or acknowledged that. We ordered the flambe and I hoped to have the tableside fire, but they did that part in the back. The steak was not bad, but I was disappointed there was no ribeye option.

    We went for Miami Spice and it was a quaint little spot. I wasn't sure what to expect as the décor itself is a little outdated but when we got our food it was phenomenal! Would definitely return.

    Food and service was excellent! The crab cakes were delicious and good sized portion. I ordered the sirloin steak medium rare which was perfectly seared. It was easy to cut and melted in my mouth. I don’t know what they do to the bread they bring to the table but super fresh and soft. We had some bread left over and took it home, it was still soft the next day. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. Food was fairly priced. Great moon and pop restaurant. The name threw me off. I expected a French restaurant but it turned out to be an Argentinian restaurant but it didn’t disappoint. They do have escargot though. I will definitely come back to this place.

    Lovely beautifully structured Argentine European restaurant offering exquisite food, European cozy ambiance with an authentic family owned welcoming service, My husband and I felt as if we transcended back to our last visit to Europe. We highly recommend French Bistro to everyone that’s looking for delicious meat, seafood, fish, wine and a unique dinning experience. It was a pleasure meeting the owners, chef and our server that made our dinning experience exceptional,
