Be sure to visit La Bistro Italian Restaurant on the weekends to hear the resident piano player.
Great food, service and atmosphere! Big enough to accommodate my big family, huge plus!!
very good quality meal and excellent service, the lemon chello very good!
Sis and his Staff were excellent!
great food and the ambiance is excellent. let the piano player know your favorites, she will play them all.
My husband has the ribeye and shrimp “on the rocks” and stated numerous times it was the best steak he’s ever had.
The food was okay. I had veal scalipini it was tough. My friend had the shrimp pasta, shrimp was good, pasta and sauce not so much.
Participated in Restaurant Week. Fantastic food & service. Great neighborhood gem.
Our second visit to La Bistro in the last two (2) months and it was as memorable as the first. For this visit, we thoroughly enjoyed the Restaurant Week menu . Our dining experience was both memorable and first class. Our server (Paul) did a wonderful job of pointing out the different meal options and recommending some decadent wine to pair with our meal selections. I can promise that we will be back to visit Sid and Paul in the very near future.
The food was AMAZING!! We had the filet on the rocks, shrimp risotto & salmon. Nothing disappointed & the flavors were wonderful! Service was wonderful as well. Even the live piano playing added to the night without overpowering our conversation.
Food is good but there are better places for the price. Very dated restaurant with older customers. Owner was walking around and is nice in his own way but very gruff. I had the steak on the rocks. Really nothing special. My wife had shrimp risotto which was good. Overall, not great but a solid good in terms of food. Probably will not go back as there are many, many options for this price range with better food.
It was for a gentleman’s bday and they brought him out a piece of delicious date cake. Wonderful wines to choose from.
Food is amazing, the staff is very friendly. I love this place.
Great menu with so many options. Chicken Parm was very good. Very reasonably price. Nice local place with attention to detail. Piano player was a nice touch (but a bit loud). Haven’t been o a few years and enjoyed it thoroughly.
I have been enjoying La Bistro for years. Their food is quite good and their veal dishes are as good as anyplace I have been in my 29 years living in the DFW are. I can especially recommend their veal saltimbuco, Sinatra, or Marsala. Go there and enjoy!
My husband and I like La Bistro but unfortunately it is extremely noisy! So much so that the waitress could not hear us and we could not hear her! Also, the ambiance and decor has not changed in a at least 12 years since the last time we were there and it is a little cramped and quite dark. Fewer tables would perhaps help the noise. The main course was good but the salad was not! The lettuce tasted old and watery and there were only a couple of tomato halves with the lettuce and nothing else. My husband's osso bucco was delicious and well prepared but my Israeli veal was too cream heavy. For the money, it could be better! The waitress was very nice and even gave my husband and I some Frangelico at the end of our meal for free. The restaurant is in desperate need of change, some modernization and a menu revamp.
Great food, great service and just a great place to go!
We have been going to La Bistro since the late 80’s and it has only gotten better!! It never disappoints!!!
Fantastic little gem of a restaurant. The food was fantastic, the service was great. I will definitely return. It seems a little out of place being in what I would call a "retail strip mall", however, once you are inside it doesn't feel like it at all. Even if it did, I would still visit since the food is that good.
Excellent service and ambience
We were visiting the area from Houston and enjoyed a very nice dinner with family members. Delicious food, nice ambiance and good service. Hope to return!
Excellent food & service. Would definitely recommend to friends. Never disappointed.
Blinds left open during daylight hours spoiled cozy atmosphere. Did not enjoy cooking steak myself at table (was not explained on menu). Very nice server but, overall unpleasant experience.
We have always enjoyed this restaurant for any special occasion. The food and ambiance are wonderful.
Sid the owner usually greets you & wonderful piano players for dinner. Try the HOT ROCKS !! We had group of eight for our anniversary & it was FABULOUS!! Thanks Sid & Sergio, our server...great job

Wouldn't expect such a great place in a shopping center. First walked in thought piano was a little loud (they seated us very close)...but after we settled in was not so bad. Helped set a fun classy mood. Next time I'll ask to be seated a little further away just because sometimes couldn't hear conversation. Food is phenomenal and wait staff superb. We will be back!
La Bistro never disappoints and the prices are very reasonable.
Only 8 patrons there at the time, so was very quiet. Excellent food & service. Will definitely go to La Bistro again.
Muy bueno. Nos atendio el dueno que es un Frances muy simpatico. Habia una persona tocando el piano muy bonito. La comida excelente y precios razonables.
I love La Bistro! The food and the ambiance are exceptional. Everything we tried was wonderful. I thought the Chicken Francais was outstanding!
This was our first visit to La Bistro. I love good Italian food, and wanted to try a new restaurant. My go-to Italian dish, and thus the test of flavors and quality, is veal. My veal entree was FANTASTIC. I had never had this combination of ingredients in a veal dish before. I don't remember the name of the dish, but the veal scallopine was combined with zucchini, prosciutto and a light cheese, plus sauce, of course. I would go back and order it again...and again! My husband ordered the Veal Jerusalem and said it was pretty good. Entrees come with a side of pasta and soup or salad. The bread was very, very buttered or oiled and garlicky--and plain white bread, at that, so we will pass on that next time. The side salad was pedestrian as well. The wine list was just varied and extensive enough (per glass), and reasonably-priced. The restaurant was a bit noisy the night we were there because there was a private party in half of the restaurant. We ordered their house specialty dessert to share, a date cake that also came with a light creamy sauce on top. The cake was warm, not too sweet and frankly, pretty perfect. We would also order that many times! We definitely recommend this place.
La Bistro is a fabulous local gem of a restaurant!
You wouldn’t expect a restaurant of this caliber to be located with in a strip mall.
My only disappointment? I didn’t find this restaurant sooner having lived in the area the past four years!
What a wonderful surprise. The food and service was amazing. We can’t wait to return.
We have been to La Bistro a number of times over the years and have always had good meals and service. The owner walked by and waved, but basically said nothing. This time the food was fine, but the service was non existent. We waited to be seated with very few people in the restaurant. The waiter left menus and after a long time filled our water glasses and brought bread. After additional time waiting he took our orders and the food was fine when it arrived, but when my wife asked me if we wanted more bread the waiter said "you have vegetables!" I'm not sure if he felt they were equivalent or just did not want to bother getting us any more bread. We felt it was the later. He never stopped by to see if our food was to our liking or to fill our empty water glasses. And I should have mentioned that he never asked if wanted anything else to drink such as a glass of wine. Hopefully this is an isolated incident, but if it was our first visit we would NEVER come back again!!!
Antonio provided great service and the food was top notch as always!
They are quickly becoming a favorite. If you go on Friday or Saturday , you will want to make a reservation. Those nights are also pretty noisy. They also have a piano player on Friday & Saturday evenings.
Whether you are in dressy clothing or blue Jeans , you will be comfortable.
The service is great. The food is great. They are the only place I know of that has steaks & seafood on the rocks. If you have never had this new way of cooking, try it, at least once... you will be hooked.
If you close your eyes as you eat, you’ll believe your in Italy (we’ve been to Italy many times and La Bistro is exactly as we remember the numerous restaurants we’ve eaten at). The owner greeted us at the door - he was very gracious. There was a fantastic piano player adding to the ambiance. We can’t wait to return.
Definitely not cheap, but the food is well worth it.
Really outstanding evening, I have zero complaints. Every dish was on point, small but nice wine list (Gaja!), there was a pianist playing an eclectic variety of tunes, very cozy ambiance. I will gladly go back again and again!
Had a great meal while catching with friends we had not seen in a while. Service was a perfect balance of attentiveness and leaving us alone. Food was great!
