Cute place with excellent food.

Small, cute restaurant with excellent food and well priced. We really enjoyed our meal and will be back without a doubt. The steak was really great. Had a great time. Would recommend.

Reservations are generally needed for this small boutique restaurant. The seating arrangement is close but comfortable. Having dinner at LeBistro is an evening you will remember. The menu options, the quality of the ingredients, the food preparation, the flavor, the presentation, and the local wines are wonderful. This restaurant is great for a gathering of friends, a celebration, or for... More

When our friend said we would be seated 4 and 2 he said "absolutely not!" We have found the people of... More

We first ate here about 2 years ago. It's a small, intimate restaurant with only nine tables. Our wine guide at J Vineyards recommended it since she found out we were staying in Petaluma. Chef Corey prepared us a wonderful meal. So this trip, we made reservations early. Our first stop after landing in San Francisco was here for another... 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
