    AVOID! AVOID! AVOID! Absolutely the worst service my husband and I have ever experienced at a restaurant !!! Our cocktails were made incorrectly and had to be sent back (no apologies or offers to rectify), even my soda arrived mid-entree with zero explanation. Absolutely no effort to accommodate our food allergies - telling us that making a Niçoise salad for dinner instead of lunch was IMPOSSIBLE and that is why it was on the lunch menu!!! Wait, did we hear that correctly?? It’s impossible to make a French salad in a French restaurant? Incredible!!! As a result - I had to order the “mixed greens” appetizer as my entree - needless to say we were a little taken back when we noticed it was literally just lettuce - store bought lettuce, in a bowl - bon appetite! Honestly do yourself a favor and AVOID this restaurant. The only thing authentically French about it is their arrogance.

    Authentic French Bistro This authentic, cozy, VERY French Bistro serves French favorites in a charming setting. While the staff does try hard (they are accommodating, polite and very French) service is so spotty and often inattentive. (I would not dine here if you are on a schedule or trying to make a show. Many of the pre-pandemic staff seem to be gone, leaving those seasoned staff members who remain understandably overwhelmed and responsible for EVERYTHING. Our server was also the host, tended bar, took take out orders and reservations and remained polite and pleasant through it all.) That said the food is quite good. The appetizers are tasty, especially, the Fish soup, beet carpaccio with goat cheese and escargot. The mussels in various, preparations, scallops and ratatouille are very tasty. As there are no vegetarian entrees on the menu, our very pleasant, Herculean server asked the chef to create a vegetarian pasta, which was yummy. The menu changes seasonally, with options maximizing the availability of in season foods. (Summer brings soft shell crabs and a cold salmon option.) The desserts are reminiscent of patisseries in Paris, especially the apple tart. We do enjoy Bistro Vendome, the cozy (albeit EXTREMELY hot on this summer evening) atmosphere, and the authentic, tasty, French fare. With truly good, genuinely French food, an accommodating (albeit OVERWHELMED)staff and a very cozy atmosphere, Bistro Vendome is a good choice for a tasty French meal.

    What a gem of a bistro, serving authentic French dishes in a pleasant, airy environment. The Dover sole meunière was particularly notable - well worth its steep price. The crowd is older and well-heeled. The only drawback is that tables are packed so closely together that you might as well be joining your neighbors' conversations (which can be particularly intrusive when they think they're conversing in a train station), so not ideal - at least on a Saturday night - for a quiet dinner. But overall, a surprising discovery.

    As always, a great meal. We eat here frequently and are never disappointed. The special, lobster risotto, was a memorable dish although everyone in our party was impressed by the skill of the chef. Even the burger, my wife’s favorite, was outstanding. You can’t get a better burger anyplace.

    My wife and I both ordered Dover Sole meunière which to our delight we found to be the best preparation of that dish we’ve had in New York. Simply put, Bistro Vendome’s chef knows how to cook fish, not to overlook it as sadly so many are wont to do. This wonderfully fresh fish was absolutely succulent. It’ll be very difficult for us not to order Dover Sole or some other fish preparation on our next visit to Bistro Vendome, but we’ll deal with it.

    This restaurant is one of our favorites. We were celebrating my husband’s birthday and we sat outside in the rear garden. We’re assuming they had a problem with wait staff and were completely understaffed. This is a pricy restaurant so we expect good food and service. The service was absolutely awful! Everything took an excessive amount of time. We were sitting for 45 minutes before we got a menu which we had to ask for. The entire dinner took over 3 hours. Our food was good and hot once it finally arrived. We didn’t order dessert because we didn’t want to wait any longer. We will not return any time soon. They need to fix the problem so diners can once again enjoy the total experience they are paying dearly for.

    Sunday lunch with my grandson is a special occasion. He lives In Michigan. Alas we were shoved to the side. One would never have guessed that it is so a place I often visit. Of course the reason I go there so often is both the food and the service usually are very good.
