What a surprise! We had never been here before but due to the TripAdvisor reviews, we thought we would give it a try. We entered to lovely piano music playing on the grand piano in the front of the restaurant. Each dish was delicious, including the garlic bread. We were served quickly and efficiently without feeling rushed. I will certainly come back here if in the area again in the future.

Wonderful meal. Impeccable service. The Sea Bass on Risotto was the best I've ever had. My 1 1/2 grandson loved the creme broule but then he probably thought it was just a tasty pudding.

The garlic bread and salad were excellent. My glass of Cab was very generous. The Jerusalem chicken was a little bland. I think it used to be better. The same can be said for the crab cake. It needed to have more flavor, but it was quite large and filled with lots of crab. We love the cozy, quiet atmosphere here and look forward to returning and trying more entrees.

Really enjoyed this restaurant. So much so, we returned the following week. If you like a little spice to your dishes, Chicken Murphy is fantastic.

Get the OASIS cake!! I would not believe it was a sugar-free dessert if the waiter hadn't told me. I was pleasantly surprised with the flavor. And the fried ravioli is amazing as well! Great for a date night....dim light, dark colors, and a piano player. I look forward to my next meal there.

Our visit to LaBistro was outstanding. We were celebrating 2 birthdays and totally enjoyed the experience. The food was exceptional and the service was timely and very professional. The owner stopped by to check on everything and was very attentive. I would highly recommend this resturant and we will return !!!

I needed a place for a birthday celebration that was convenient for family in Ft. Worth and family in Lewisville, and was also fairly quiet so we could converse. I remembered La Bistro.
Overall the food was good. My seafood fettucine was quite good. The chicken marsala, veal marsala, and chicken piccata were all deemed excellent. Another person had a chicken dish with garlic and lemon sauce and had them add mushroom, said it was great. Teen daughter had tortellini and liked it. Hubby thought the lobster ravioli was just so-so. I can't remember what my SIL had.
We were celebrating three birthdays, although they only knew about one, so they brought out date cake, which was similar to banana bread. One sister and I loved it. Daughter was not a fan, so I brought hers home to have for breakfast.
Our table for eight (was supposed to be nine, but the last one could not make it), was a combination of a square 4 top and one of the square 4 tops that have the "wings" you can fold up to make it a bigger round table. That made it a little awkward, especially as the wings were kind of slanting down.
The piano player came around and asked for requests. It wasn't too loud where we were.
Overall, it was a little louder than I would have liked for good conversation, but it is hard with a group of 8 to talk in a restaurant anyway.
Waitstaff and owner/manager were all quite nice.

Went Friday night & very busy. Seemed to be short staffed. My dinner was not hot so had to send it back. My husband's salmon had too many capers & needed more spinach with it. Soups were delicious. Pianist is very good & visits each table for song requests. Usually very good food & service though.

Classic Italian restaurant. Old world charm with great food and authentic waitstaff. The food is, without question, some of the best Italian food even compared to food we ate in Tuscany.

The food & service was excellent, however we were disappointed that lunch cost us $25 PP. We thought all restaurants participating in Restaurant Week for lunch were to charge $20 PP.

This will be my new go-to Italian restaurant. The service was wonderful and so was the food! There was a little too much dressing on my Caesar salad (I don't like a lot of dressing and forgot to order it on the side), but the servers were very attentive and the flavors were wonderful in all of our dishes. For the high quality of food, I would have expected a much higher final bill, but the prices are affordable for excellent food and service. Our family will definitely be back!

Excellent Italian. Reminds me of the family run Italian restaurants in New Jersey. This was our 2nd visit and we'll be back. Gnocchi soup, red snapper on rissoto, and lasagna; all were excellent. Very personal service. Friday nights they have a pianist.

I have been going to le bistro for over 10 years I really look forward to going because I hadn’t been there in several years ! I especially love the lobster bisque soup! HoweverMy most recent visit was a real letdown! The soup tasted like they had opened a can of tomato soup and added two or three pieces of slightly cooked lobster..The chicken piccata was two preformed previously frozen chicken breast with absolutely no taste nor seasoning! Unfortunately as so many of my old favorite restaurants in the area the food has just deteriorated! What a pity!
