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

We were staying for one night in Petaluma and tried the Bistro for dinner. It was delicious! We tried severall yummy wines by the glass. The food was excellent. We had a halibut dish and a lamb tenderloin, both with lovely sauces. The chocolate torte dessert was excellent, as well. Service was good and if I lived here, I'd be... More

A few blocks from the main dining area in downtown. Looks like a mom ,pop operation. But they get the food out and it is very tasty. The prices are very reasonable. The wine list is a little short and I would expect that given the size of the building

A few weeks ago my husband and I were planning to go to Petaluma. We were trying to think of where to eat and then we remembered Le Bistro. I called to make a reservation for dinner at the time they were to open. That was a good idea because making a reservation for this small restaurant is essential. When... More

This is a very small place with limited capacity and hours. The owner and chef, Cory, is focused on the food and really delivers the goods. Every dish is carefully prepared to order with special sauces. Veal, lamb, fish, etc. -- we've eaten just about everything on the menu and it's all been great.

Small restaurant on south Petaluma blvd is a real gem. Our table was waiting when we walked in. The menu was short but plenty of selections. We ordered filet with prawns, halibut in buerre blanc sauce and prawns. Everything was wonderful - presentation, quality of food, preparation, and taste. Wine selections by glass or bottle were great and reasonably priced.... More

This small restaurant, open only for extended weekends, was a huge success with all four of us on our recent travels to Petaluma. The food was absolutely delicious. The service was attentive. My only disappointment was that we would not be able to come back due to the restaurant schedule. Great job all!
