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.
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!
Guess maybe we were seated too close to the piano cause it was really loud. My ravioli had the texture and flavor of pie dough.
Saturday night, great food & wonderful live piano music, great atmosphere.
It was delicious... Friendly staff .... dessert beyond the scale
Great place for a date out. Food was fresh and prepared meticulously, presentation outstanding. Service was pretty good, overall ambiance was quaint and the music was spot on.
We NEVER have a bad meal here!! It is definitely our go to restaurant!! This is, by far, the best Italian restaurant in the area!
Excellent food, great ambience, and the owner was very nice as well.
It was a little warm in the building, but otherwise no complaints.
We love this place. Alyssa always takes great care of us. The food, service and family atmosphere is what keeps us coming. (and great dirty martinis)
The only disappointment was that I forgot to bring home my leftovers! I was devastated that I wasn't going to have pasta la bistro for lunch the next day. My fault and might have had something to do with the aforementioned martini. :-)
Excellent evening as always. Celebrating my oldest daughter’s birthday. Antonio took very good care of us!
The “on the Rocks” menu is outstanding! I can say the Filet on the Rocks was the tenderest filet I have had in a very long time. It literally melted in my mouth. Delicious!
Dining here for 20+ years. Always a great experience. Food is top notch....great Italian cuisine.
Great Italian food for a very reasonable price. Service was on point. Owner/manager was only greeting regular customers and ignoring us, new customers. No tables for two. Better suited for families than romantic dinner. It was our 20-year anniversary and I indicated that when making the reservation but mobody wished us a happy anniversary.
Worst Valentines ever. Service was terrible. No bread. No asking if we would like anything else. Waiter bumped into gf like 5 times. Waited awhile on a reservation. Worst possible seating.
My significant other and I came on Valentine's day, the service was great but the food was not at all worth the price. I will never go again, and I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Good food and good service. Nice atmosphere good.
Great food. Super fast service.
We went to Le Bistro for a birthday dinner. Menu is extensive and each dish freshly prepared. Lobster ravioli sauce delicious. Each dish we had was unique : fresh and flavorful. Both the waiter and owner were very attentive. Plan to return soon.
The food is always fabulous. The chef has delightful specials for every palette.
Excellent food , staff ,ambieance !! First time there !! We won’t be strangers for long !! Nice nice people !! Food was excellent !!🕺🎉😍🤙
Food and service excellent. The rest rooms were not very clean. Please keep them cleaner. Piano music is still too loud. Have her use the soft pedal.
We returned to this restaurant after several years and were completely delighted with all the changes they have made. This is a lovely restaurant with truly delicious food. It will become a regular.
We tried their ribeye on the lava stone and it was excellent. Highly recommend this restaurant. A true gem situated in a strip mall. Highly recommended.
We always enjoy our evenings at La Bistro. The music, food & service can't be beat. It's great for a first date, special occasion or even just when you have a craving for Italian food. We recommend it to everyone & we always try to take family & friends there when they come in from out of town.
House salad dressing was a bit underwhelming. Service was less than enguaging, seems like regulars were well served....we were not really a concern. Not great sense of urgency. Long wait at the door, host was packaging Togo food. The entrees were very good, the piano just right and the ambiance was pleasant.
Amazing food, romantic atmosphere with live piano player- great for a date night!
We spend every Christmas Eve here. It’s always been a great place but since Sid became owner it’s only gotten better!!
It felt like they were trying to seat as many people as possible and we were climbing over people to get to our table and get out. Quality went out the door, as a result. The wait staff was over-worked and barely a smile was seen on their faces. They had a tough time getting around tables to serve because they were so close to one another. Food wasn’t hot or even warm! Piano music was a nice touch and something they are known for. We may try again, but NOT during the holidays!
