Dined here as a group of 4 celebrating a birthday. It was a busy night with many large groups and service was a bit shorthanded so some delays here and there, but luckily it didn't take away from a great meal and evening. Staff recommended the jerusalem artichoke, rillettes and other starters which were all great. Must try to visit... More

We've been here a few times with friends this year and we like it. Rillete is tasty (esp duck) and steak has never disappointed. Apparently there's been a chef change recently but still a good meal. We'll try again...

Bottle of wine, some of the rillettes, duck or pork and a main. Perfect evening. Escargot very creamy/garlicky. Onglet steak was cooked exactly to med rare. Steak tartare prepared like it's supposed to be. I need to go back so I can try a dozen other things here.

I was happy to have found this place that serves seasonal french food. However, the experience was marred by the poor service from the phillipino waitress. She clearly distinguishes between service for a white person and asian women. She also made an mistake with my order and did not have the courtesy to apologise for the mistake. Instead she clearly...

Hoping for some French Bistrot food, we booked here. Starters were all either very fatty charcuterie, escargots. Main courses were swimming in heavy sauces. The waiter forgot about us and we had to call to him to get the plates cleared and ask for the next course. Wine was excellent but the selection of Bordeaux were quite poor. Decor so... More

Just got back from Le Bistrot du Sommelier. As a french canadian I am not as picky as a real french. I selected a botlle of wine of $88 for a 2012 Bourgogne from the menu and got charged $138 for a 2010. I complained to the waiter (indian) and spoke to the owner (singaporian) but they refused to admit... More

I have passed this restaurant several times when I park my car nearby. I came by for lunch recently with some friends. This was my first visit to this restaurant. We tried some of the restaurant signatures. Here are the highlights: - Home-made Rillettes: Duck Rillette ($10.80/ 100gm) and Rabbit Rillette ($12.80/ 100gm). These were served with house-made baguettes. The... More

Bistro has always been one of my favorite restaurants in Singapore. Over the years they have managed to keep the consistency up and deliver a great product. I must say I always liked their other location better, this one I don't think has the same cozy feel. It is always busy. But I wonder now if they are trying to... More
