Ambiance: The place felt quite crowded for Covid. There were no chairs at the bar, but there were multiple groups of people standing and hanging out there drinking. We saw multiple staff people hugging and shaking hands with regular patrons.

Service: Our server did an excellent job of checking in on us and provided an exceptional wine recommendation. Unfortunately, our bread plates sat stacked on our table throughout our entire meal. The same went for our entree plates. They weren't removed until I finally stacked them up myself.

Food: Adequate...I definitely expected better. The scallops were barely seared. The tuna tartare was just okay.

I understand dining in during pandemic has changed everything, but taking plates while we are still enjoying food, or opening up the bill to see how much you were tipped despite the rude service provided shouldn’t be the new normal. We were never informed about such time limit anyway. I have always enjoyed this place but your poor service has turned me away to not go back and spend my money elsewhere.

The steak fritte was very chewy.
I have had this dish many time here.
Never has the meat been so chewy and sub par.
Disappointing.
I’ve never had to worry about my order here

I didn't love Le Bilboquet. I have walked by their Cherry Creek location a few times to see plentiful outdoor seating and tasty looking meals, but when my friends and I made a reservation and went on a recent Saturday, it was disappointing. I loved the atmosphere, but our server was downright rude and we laughed about how annoyed he seemed with us after one of us asked for our hollandaise sauce on the side instead of on top of the eggs benedict. I have been a server and know it can be annoying when people rattle off a bunch of customizations, but this seemed like such a small thing. Alas, I don't think we'll be doing back.

We had a lovely dinner with friends here last Friday night. The ambience was perfect, it felt very much like we were all dining in France! Everyone loved their meals. The organic green salad was so light and so flavorful, the mussels were very plump and served in a big bowl of wonderful broth. Our waiter was a bit distracted but we will definitely be going back!!!

How do you expect anyone to have a dining experience while sitting in a doorway. It was absolutely miserable! Not my favorite luncheon. I will be specific next time and ask if I can sit in the restroom that might be more enjoyable.

we noticed that we were charged $5 for decaf and $3 for regular coffee--refills also. WE had sparkling water and a $14 charge was applied. When pointed out to the waitress, she immediately changed the bill to what it should've been. The food was good.

We had another wonderful dinner at Le Bilboquet. It's definitely pricey, but we left feeling that the food and the experience made it worth evert penny! The signature Cajun chicken is fantastic, and so is the cream of mushroom soup. Also loved the lump crab cake (no filler) on a bed of avocado. We love this place!

Our first time eating out in the COVID era. The restaurant made us feel safe with reservations for outdoor dining. The staff wore masks and the tables were appropriately distanced. The service was very attentive, and the food was beautifully presented and tasted great. The L’lle Flottante was the best I’ve ever had. We’re normal people, not flashy society types but this beautiful, trendy restaurant treated us like VIP’s and delivered an exceptional experience. Highly recommended.

We’ve been to the restaurant three times and each time very disappointed. Arrogant wait staff that are actually rude- food is ok and why does the music at a French restaurant feel like a night club? Not sure why it’s getting business...
Be nice!

Beautiful setting, attractively distanced tables, and attentive Maître D. Unfortunately the food and service did were not up to the challenge. Endive salad and steak tartare were insipid, beet salad and salmon, equally uninspiring. We hope that the staff and kitchen improve, as the restaurant is a terrific addition to the Denver restaurant scene

Saturday night is a traditional “ tough “ night in a crowded, popular restaurant.lots of celebratory ,one time diners .christo,our waiter,navigated the overflow crowd with aplomb ,making us feel like we were his only table.service was spectacular.food was slightly under sauced and overcooked but That was more more sat night,than kitchen fault.

Service wasn’t bad however we were going to make a substitute for one of the side dishes and request to split each of the entrees. We had indicated what we were ordering to our server in order to get a wine suggestion. Our wines arrived and before we knew it our entrees arrived. We managed to share however it would have been a bit easier if our server had checked before placing our orders. Still had a pleasant evening.

We all felt like they are trying to hard to make this a hip, crazy, party restaurant rather then a classy, relaxing date night type of restaurant. The vib really has changed from the last time we were there.
