The food was all delicious, except for a salad that was mediocre (romaine was not usable at the time, however, because of a recall). The date cake dessert is worth a trip to the restaurant alone. The restaurant is a little darker than we would prefer.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
