Very good French bistro experience. Authentic

The owner and maitre is french, so he takes care of making his restaurant an authentic bistro experience. The food is excellent, good selections on the menu. The wine list is ok, but has good value wines. The service is good, but sometimes incosistent. The staff is friendly. Is big enough so most... read more

I've been here on a few occasions and the food and wine/champagne may be delightful but service is just awful!! You're waiting 45 min for a menu. They bring the wine and leave, then open the bottle 15 minutes later because you're flagging down the waiter! Trying to pay is another hassle for them to bring the check. Delightful place... More

Had not visited them since they moved to this location a few years ago. Loved the atmosphere , decor and food. Decided to step in after attending an exhibition at the Museo de ARTE de Puerto Rico which is across the street. The onion soup I ordered was very good as well as the red wine, Rigal. The bar area...

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent. Great jewel steps away from the Museo de Arte de PR. We had Mussel and French Fries (I felt like in a little cafe at Bruges) and a Salmon. Wine list was small but classic. The chocolate cake was great. Decor make you feel like in Paris along with music. Only recommendation: eliminate the tv from the... More

I enjoyed my dinner at Bistro de Paris. Their Escargot has been the best I have had in the metro area. The ambience takes you back to a cafe in Paris. We did have a small incident with the waiter that appears to have forgotten to put in our last entree but it later resolved itself.

Tried the Coq Au Vin for the first time and loved it, I also reccomend "Fondue Nights" on Thursdays -- $40 for a Cheese Fondue with Kirschvasser that serves four flaquitas or three gorditas! In any event, enjoying one in the bar area feels lime Autumn in New York. Dreamy! Always an A+ dining experience at Bistro de Paris, All... More

I went to Bistro de Paris for Valentines' Day. It is a nice, cozy place. The food was exquisite (try the Filet Mignon). Excellent, kind service.
