Very pleasant staff, prompt service and lovely decor. We were offered an extensive wine list and old french style Bistrot Menu. The Pate was excellent, served with bread. The Gnocchi main was delicious and filling, the hazelnuts add a nice touch. The Duck Ragout, at a hefty $36, was a pretty small plate, even with the potato topping it only... More

You can not fault Bistrot D'Orsay. The location is great with the theatre across the road. Each time I've eaten here the food has been delicious with perfect wines to accompany. Plus the dessert is unbelievable with the best crème brûlée ever!!!

Disappointing meal. To start with, we were stuck against a wall on a small table. The tables for two look good but are impractical - all too small. I really wanted to take my husband here as my previous experience had been wonderful. He doesn't want to go back after having poor quality lamb served up to him. The dish... More

I went with a group of girl friends right before a show at the Regent Theatre. we were not disappointed. The staff were very attentive and timed our courses in time for the show. The ambiance and food was fantastic and we all enjoyed our meal. Reasonably priced and can't beat the location. Very romantic if you are a couple.

The food is always outstanding. It is fresh, well cooked and nicely presented. The chefs are doing a great job with the products they work with. The wine list is refreshing to... More
