We really TRIED to eat here again. We had a great meal here last year. But we had six people so one of our group stopped by to see about coming the following evening. He was told "no way!" When our friend said we would be seated 4 and 2 he said "absolutely not!" We have found the people of... More

I have eaten at Le Bistro numerous times over the years. In all my experiences eating here, I have NEVER been disappointed. The food is always prepared to perfection, and the staff is awesome. The atmosphere gives off a sense of welcoming, good vibes which is priceless to me. With this type of atmosphere, it is possible to make any... More

My boyfriend and I went here for a romantic dinner. It was wonderful. Yes, you do have to make reservations but it's well worth it. Excellent food and ambiance. He had the lamb and I had the prawns. Both outstanding. This is a place that you go to enjoy a one on one with someone or maybe four people tops.... More

Nice chic recently opened little bistro with locally sourced food was a delightful spot for a ladies birthday night out. We had reservations but were running late; they adjusted well and treated us with kindness and friendliness, from the hostess, to the servers, all appropriately attentive and accomodating to questions and changes. Wonderful, flavorful food, just right-- has a bit... More

This was our second time at Le Bistro (the day after Valentines day, they were sold out on Valentines day) and it was as good as the first visit. The wines by the glass are top notch. I started both visits with the White Burgundy my wife selected the Zinfandel. We ordered Caesar Salad and Tomato and Pepper soup with... More

There are only a few tables and we were fortunate enough to get a reservation. You know a restaurant is amazing when locals have their tables reserved for their weekly dinner. The couple next to us was celebrating their anniversary. The prawns and pan fried halibut were excellent. Chef Corey has an open kitchen, and you can see how much... More
