Was lucky enough to be taken here for dinner - wow! Amazing food, cocktails, wine, service .... The chic mousse and orange dessert was unbelievable! Yum! Our table was near the kitchen pass so we got the added bonus of watching the kitchen in action!

What more can you say? - great food and service. Everyone on our table chose a different meal, and I'm pretty sure at one point everyone had food envy. Will definitely return in the future.

What a lovely meal we had here. As I usually do when I eat here, I had the snails for entree and, also as usual, thoroughly enjoyed them. With so many good options on the menu it's hard to go wrong here. The wine list is very good and the service is impeccable. We would highly recommend a visit to... More

We shared several dishes and everyone of them had great flavors. Especially nice was the smoked trout and the multigrain said. A lovely dining experience with great service.

Visited on a recommendation from one who should know, Bistro Vue did not let me down. No problem getting a pleasantly-secluded seat near the bar after a long day out (bar seats are often better for solo dining in my view). Good beer recommendation to start, full and sensitive appreciation of the diner's tastes and preferences. The food was mainly... More

As one would expect from the Shannon Bennett dynasty this restaurant exudes class and professionalism. It's at the top of it's game for the market its targeting. Delightful experience and have no hesitation in returning.

I have reviewed the TART TATIN at Bistro Vue twice before. It didn't seem possible that it could ever be improved on. However, this time, a fresh batch was just coming out of the oven ! Indescribable delight. Chewy, moist, not too sweet, caramelised apples without the flavour being overpowered by 'caramel'. Complimented by a perfect cup of English Breakfast... More

An impromptu early dinner on a Saturday night. Beautiful French Provincial setting and atmosphere, exceptional service and exquisite food. Will definitely be returning to Bistro Vue. Steak tartare was perfect, the veal milanese was exceptional. And the desserts! Le Magnifique!

I had dinner with friends and was truly satisfied with the food of course, service, the wine selection and the knowledge of the staff in terms of recommendations and wines. The place is cozy, ( tables a bit too close to each other, which is not pleasant) , and lively. The pork dish I had was excelent but the Tarte... More
