A large wine and Champagne list or a nice traditional French dessert as “creme brulee” or multiple sweet crepes will finish this authentic French experience.
You can also enjoy no more than 80 different items : crepes sweet or savory, sandwiches in freshly baked baguette, quiches and traditional French salads everyday at breakfast and lunch time.
First time there and everything was very good. Food was good and the service was also good.
Great food with healthy vegan options. The service was wonderful and the location was convenient
Excellent food. Nice wine - fairly priced. Erratic service because they were so busy. Packed on Saturday night. We’ll return, of course, but not on weekends. One of the best for food in Sarasota area.
We have been there a few times. This place has the best French food. Service is great.
Paris Bistrot is Paris cuisine in Lakewood Ranch as the food is always fresh and tasty. The service warm and welcoming with extremely great wine selection.
Had faster service in France. Ordered escargot and brie salad and entrees .!/2 hour later were informed they had no chicken . finally when reorders came shrimp was over cooked and pork was also. The sauce was fine.
Excellent food and atmosphere. Service was prompt and attentive as well.
As usual the food and service were excellent. Will be back soon!
Love this place , my guest had the fish soup and loved it. We will be back again
Excellent food and service. On my favorites list. Waitress was very helpful with wine selections.
All around, great bistro experience. Excellent food, personable service and a comfortable environment where you can actually hear what your dining partner is saying. Imagine that.
Always enjoy the great food and service
Brought friends from out of town to this restaurant. Small, intimate dining offering authentic French dishes. Quiet enough to enjoy conversation. Appetizers, entrees and dessert crepes were very good as was the service. Especially enjoyed an opportunity to practice speaking French with a native speaker (our server).
Love this place; it's our go-to for a special occasion, especially in the winter 'cuz it's so cozy and pleasant.
Terrific food...only one caveat: the water they served us was very chemical-smelling and tasting. No excuse for that - get a filter (or a better filter). Otherwise, I would have given them a 5! or even a 5+.
Excellent French food and a good wine list..would highly recommend,
but make a reservation.
The scallops were cold not lukewarm like they had been heated from frozen or refrigerated. No apology as we asked them to be warmed.
We love this restaurant! Outstanding wine list.
This restaurant is a gem on Main Street, Lakewood Ranch. While the portions are more based on European standards, the food is super savory and different because it is truly prepared with French influences. The sauce of the Pork Marco Polo was absolutely wonderful. The scallops and fish dishes were equally terrific. 100% recommend this restaurant when you want exceptionally tasty cuisine.
Food was exquisite, loved the cod, the sauce fabulous. Portion was a little too small. No bread offered. We love the intimate atmosphere. oNly one server who did her very best to accommodate us but she had to fly from table to table, with a full amt. of tables occupied outside also. Recommend have a helper from 6-8pm.
Very accommodating ❤️ Friendly, great service and very considerate of the possible rain threat for outside seating.
Outstanding country French restaurant ... been there many, many times cause it is incredibly consistent and the staff is super friendly ... nice wine list ... my go to restaurant when I am at home. If there was a sixth star, I would award it in a minute!! Very reasonable prices ...
Have always enjoyed Paris Bistro. Food on Jan 18th was great as usual. It was a Saturday night, and all tables were filled inside the restaurant, and m,any were filled outside on the sidewalk. ONLY TWO waitresses were seen all evening. Consequently service was slow, had to wait for drink orders. I will return, but it may not be on a Saturday night. It is a shame there was not adequate staff to give patrons what they deserve.
Great food in a small cafe. A little nosy but service is good and they leave you alone to talk and enjoy your company.
We loved this jewel of a restaurant on crowded Main Street after a movie at Lakewood Ranch Cinema...
Excellent food, service, and atmosphere.
Excellent food and service
We've been very happy with every visit. Great food and excellent service.
Pleasant meal...food well prepared...possible to carry on a conversation...very good service
We enjoyed the evening very much. the staff were charming and competent
We have been here 4 times and the food is incredible, the service is great and wine is good as well.
This is our fourth visit to this fine restaurant. All food is of good quality, the menu imaginative and service excellent.
Ambience is charming, calm and permits normal conversation.
Charming and delicious! Friendly owner and staff. Will definitely be back regularly!
Wonderful meal definitely with a French flair. Fresh and so tasty. Great cozy ambiance inside and nice outside patio for dining as well. I love those smaller restaurants where everyone is made to feel special !! As a French person and a good cook this is one of my to go restaurant in town for sure !!
Have been here twice now with my girlfriend and it has been a pleasure both times. We love this place and we will certainly be coming back.
Get a bottle of wine.
Order the mussels with garlic and parsley or escargot. Mussels are better for dipping bread.
Go from there 👌🏻
Always an enjoyable experience
Lovely intimate restaurant.....excellent food quality ..............beautiful service!
What a charming little place. Decor is understated but classy. Small staff but somehow they manage to prepare excellent meals and serve them promptly. We've been wanting to try it for a while, but the menu seemed limited. Now it has a full-blown menu (again, don't know how they accomplish this miracle) and a good wine list. I licked the escargot dish clean. Foie gras was sinfully good. I of course had to have the cassoulet, which was outstanding, and my husband got lamb chops prepared just as he liked them in a lovely sauce. And crepes and profiteroles for dessert. Oooh la la French! Just what we've been looking for. A bit of Paree.
Always a relaxing, enjoyable spot for dinner. Food is always delicious.
Love this place, small, everyone is friendly and food is different from everyone else that’s what makes you want to come back
