    Great service and food!! Fish soup as an appetizer was piping hot and delicious! Both of our entrees were exceptional! Dessert was vanilla ice cream with almonds, pears, strawberry jam with whipped cream! Over the top!!

    First, the wait staff was excellent. Friendly, professional and attentive (but not in your face or annoying). Food is superb! I have been twice; fish the first time and pork tenderloin the second. My friend had the duck. Appetizers, we both had hot brie salad and second I had the mussels. Delicious. Crepes for dessert. Perfect evening and reasonably priced. Looking forward to going back. Reservations are a must, as it is a small place and both times the restaurant was full. They do have outside tables and on a cooler evening it would be perfect, but the Florida heat and humidity is too much for me to eat outside this time of year.

    Positives Our appetizers and entrées were very good. My wife had fois gras and beef bourguignon. She said they were very good. I had the bistro salad and the fish special; both were very good. The portion sizes were generous. Négatives I asked for a second glass of wine and did not receive it. The restaurant was uncomfortably warm. Every table was full. Our server was attentive at first, but when the restaurant became crowded we hardly saw him again

    The Bistro has a definite parisian ambiance. The servers are being schooled in delivering that kind of feel. They were very watchful, pleasant and efficient. We have been visiting this restaurant since its was established. We have always enjoyed the food, and we are enjoying seeing it gradually evolve into a true gem.

    Our prior visit was excellent. During this visit, we got a young man [no accent] who mumbled his words into a continuous stream of sound. Our hearing is excellent - but his words raced out of his mouth so fast, at first, we had no idea what he was saying. The duck was just average to disappointing as the sauce was watery. I also object to having wait staff stand over me whilst I select a tip level. That's low-class!

    Lovely restaurant and very peacefully, wonderful menu and great choice of wines. Ordered French onion soup and Fois Gras pate both excellent. For entree's we ordered Shrimp Curry, very good and Pork Parmasean, OK. Pork was very overcook and dry, but puff pastry and sauce were great. Potatoes very good, but not very warm and asparagus, very overcooked and tasteless. Wine very good. Emily was good server, but not very welcoming and friendly. Felt like she could hardly wait to have her shift over and we were there at the beginning of the shift (5:30PM) to have appetizers and wine. Celebrating my 73rd Birthday and forgot to us me 10% off gift from Paris Bistro. Have been there many time for breakfast and lunch and always enjoyed. Just not great this evening (8-24-22). Will we back? Absolutely, a very good charming restaurant. Just a little disappointed on my birthday.

    The waiters were terrific! However, the food was extremely disappointing. We were very surprised because we booked a reservation after reading great reviews on Open Table. Absolutely the worst French onion soup that we have ever had. Both of the main courses that we had were absolutely horrible, salty, over cooked We would never recommend this place or ever return

    Paris Bistrot is a gem in Lakewood Ranch on Main Street. Good for eating inside or outside. Today had a breakfast with a great sampling of several meal options....all were tasty and good quantity for a very reasonable price. Service was friendly, attentive and efficient. Will be going to a dinner outing sometime soon.

    Quaint Bistro, everything we had hoped for in a little French restaurant - delicious French menu, table clothes, excellent service, never made us feel rushed. Reservations only. Onion soup and bread the best! Can't wait to try other things and do breakfast.

    Very nice atmosphere, very nice and responsive staff. Entre'e portions were a little small, also server didn't tell us what the vegetable of the day was ( I should have asked , it was just ok and was more of a vegetable quiche ). Overall I would go back but be a little more selective of what I ordered. Wine list was decent but not great, would have expected a little better variety
