Italian

La Bistro Italian Restaurant, in Hurst, serves fine Italian cuisine with passion and knowhow in its elegant and inviting eatery. For a delicious start to your meal, enjoy the mushroom caps stuffed with escargot and the cheese topped garlic bread. Homemade pastas, such as the meaty baked lasagna, the fettuccine primavera with spring veggies in a creamy sauce and the linguini matriciana with bacon and onions, are some of diners’ favorite meals. La Bistro Italian Restaurant’s house specialties include the chicken La Bistro with mushrooms and shallots in a brandy dill sauce, the veal Jerusalem sautéed with artichoke hearts and garlic and the filet mignon madeira in a luscious wine and mushroom sauce. The homemade cannoli, filled with sweet ricotta cheese and topped with chocolate sauce, makes the ideal dessert.

Be sure to visit La Bistro Italian Restaurant on the weekends to hear the resident piano player.

Service was great. Main course were great and authentic Italian (reminded us of "The Hill" in St. Louis.)
House salad was disappointing.

It was quite expensive for Christmas Eve dinner. Not very much choices, and If wanted some other
It was in addition to the price of Christmas menu.

We dined for NYE with a large group of friends. Our table was ready when we arrived, the service was great, our food was excellent, and we were easily able to carry on conversation with our table of 12 while still enjoying the live piano player as the music was just the right volume.

New Years Eve, fixed price menu. For the price I would have expected the dinner price per person to include a dessert per person, not one dessert for two to share.

The additional price listed if you were to share a meal was an additional $55. Of course, that price would discourage anyone from sharing . The portion size of each dinner was very large so we all ended up bringing half each meal home.

We enjoy La Bistro, just wouldn’t go back for a “Special Occasion”

Upon arrival, the host could not find our reservation but seated us anyway. Our party of 4 felt rushed during our time there. When our reservation was made, they failed to inform us that there was a set New Years’s Eve menu. The food was mediocre at best with a price of $70 per person. We will not be returning.

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.
