My wife and I dined recently at Le Bilboquet to celebrate her birthday. The food was pretty good. Our waiter was nice and very attentive. However, we were seated on the edge of a very busy walkway used by the restaurant wait staff to carry food from the kitchen out to the diners. This was a tolerable situation at first and I didn’t think much of it. We were having a good time and enjoying our experience.

However, during the middle of our meal, while we were eating our dinner, the restaurant made the decision to expand a four-seater table out to a six-seater and sat a full table there immediately next to us. I could hit the diner with my elbow if I wanted to…this person was maybe 12 inches away from me. The main walkway mentioned previously remained busy as expected. Countless wait-staff started “squeezing” by me every 15-30 seconds carrying food out to the diners. I was literally being physically contacted over and over again while eating my food as the staff kept maneuvering by. After about five minutes, again...while we were eating dinner and trying to have conversation, we were interrupted by an employee of the restaurant who asked us if it was OK to “move” our table and this person proceeded to lift our table with his hands and push it further away from the six-seat table they just sat down. My wife and I both had to move our chairs to continue eating and we were consequentially pushed closer to the table on the other side of us, basically pinned in on both sides. At several points, I had to dodge plates with food as they were being carried by. Our experience was ruined. We had to hurriedly finish our meal so we could ask for the check and get out of there. Our waiter understood what was going on and apologized, even offered a free appetizer if we were to come back. However, I am very frustrated to pay high prices for such a poor experience and would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

I booked the table over a month ago. We were seated outside at an uncovered or heated front terrace just before a major storm event; we were then moved (upon our own demand) because of the eminent weather event, and given the worst table in the house next to the service station, kitchen and service aisle. We were treated like tourists when indeed we are locals.

The food was barely warm as well as overcooked (halibut and pork chop).

The food, service, and ambience were all fantastic. The services provided by the professional management and staff are the main reasons that we keep coming back. The old world elegance is a rare thing, and we value their focus to make sure that everything about the dining experience is excellent. I highly recomend this restaurant.

Really disappointed by the steak au poivre. No pepper flavor. Like they ran out of pepper altogether. Sauce was really displeasing. Steak inconsistent from cold/rare to overcooked on same piece. Really disappointing/ flavorless warm goat cheese salad. The risotto was excellent. Service was prompt and attentive . Didnt bother to complain about the steak but will definitely pass on this restaurant in the future

Took a friend to dinner for her birthday - we celebrated with wine and the cajun chicken (just too good not to order). The service was excellent, and the food even better.

Lovely ambiance, excellent service and stellar food are the hallmarks of Le Bilboquet. Maitre'D was very helpful in working us in when our open table reservation was accidentally on wrong date.
Grilled Romaine continues to be my favorite starter. My companion had the grilled artichoke salad. No grilled flavor and pretty ho-hum compared to the romaine salad.
Trout special was good, but had a bit of a "muddy" or earthy taste I have never experienced with trout before. Halibut was lovely as usual. brussels sprouts were a bit under-cooked for my taste but nice anyway. Birthday chocolate mousse with sparkler was a highlight.

We chose this restaurant to celebrate our 40th anniversary. Very happy we did. It's not too small nor too big - just the right amount of intimacy - but enough noise that you feel your conversations are private. The lighting is nice and they opened all the windows to the sidewalk and turned on the outside heaters which have such a nice glow. Our food was excellent as was our waitstaff. There was a little hiccup when our waitress apparently got "cut" for the evening and the girl who took over didn't pick up the reins very quickly, but when we got someone's attention everything was smooth after that. They brought us a very nice chocolate mousse to share as a surprise and we really enjoyed it. It's a very beautiful restaurant and the staff are very attentive. And of course our food was excellent.

Authentic Paris Bistro experience alive and well. Noise level is the only challenge, one would have the same challenge in Paris, though. Frog legs, veal, lamb and duck all delish. The whole experience was topped off by such excellent customer service. Very attentive. Bisous (kisses) to Le Bilboquet.

Celebrated my friends birthday lunch there. Three other birthdays also going on at lunch time. The food was delicious. Our server was very nice but it seemed like he had a huge area to manage. The birthday dessert was great fun! Parking can be interesting. Not sure where to park. Valet was not outside.

Le Bilboquet is one of my favorite restaurants in Dallas, and I have been a regular there since it opened. The food and ambiance is superb. Notably, for the last few months I have been on a highly restrictive medical diet... They were not only accommodating to the restrictions, but it was hands-down the best dinner I have had since starting the program three months ago.
