Most of what you read in the reviews about the Bistro is true: the esthetic is cozy and very European; the food is very good; the waiters can be a bit arrogant; it is expensive. To start, the ambiance is cozy - there are 3 small, separate dining areas plus the bar and the street-side patio giving the illusion you... More

Cozy and pleasant, full of character and atmosphere, and a nice menu… Some items are unmemorable (e.g., lobster sandwich, onion soup), but others are first-rate (e.g., quiche, trio macaroni). Wine list provides some affordable (not cheap, mind you!) options. Service good and attentive. All in all, an excellent option for a relaxing meal…

Overall settings are very good. Menu includes both brunch offerings as well as normal menu plates. Presentation is good and food quality is also good. Our party was about 7 and each ordered from the brunch or menu. Service was somewhat slower than other times, but the place was really packed on Easter Sunday. All dishes came out at the... More

Excellent food and service . Pricey, but no worse than most in the area. Friendly wait staff and charming atmosphere. I would definitely recommend for a little slice of Paris !

The waiters may have fooled me into thinking they were French by behaving so arrogantly. If not, then my hat off to the owner who has indoctrinated them well. Their attitude towards my kids was atrocious. For anyone fortunate enough to have been to France, give this place a miss!!! Vive la revolution!!!!

The Bistro de Paris is a charming little cafe, with outdoor tables under a shade, weather permitting, and plenty of indoor seating. We had Sunday brunch and it was fine. The bloody marys were nicely piquante and a plate of fresh fruit with some crunchy granola and light croissants sparked our appetites. the Eggs Benedict were tasty, the quiche was... More

Prices are steep for the quality in return. For the bread the spread is margarine not butter, the red meat is not USDA choice buy regular meat, purchase in any common Walmart stores and the bread served is just regular cidrines brand, the cheap one, and never order the house wine is just the cheapest wine you could ever tried...
