General We invite lovers of great food and wine to experience the casual atmosphere and the authentic French cuisine of Bistro 1902. Our location in downtown Hollywood is styled in tradition of these small Parisian restaurants, starting from the bottle in which we serve you water, ending with the cup in which we serve your cappuccino. And just like these early establishments we are family-owned and family-operated. When you come to dine with us you are our guest, and we cook for you as we would for ourselves. That is the reason why we only serve the finest, freshest and most natural ingredients. We are constantly exploring new alternatives to ensure that we put only the best in the dishes we prepare for you. Bistro 1902 combines a quaint, familiar ambiance with decades of experiences. All our dishes are closely monitored by our head chef, who uses every bit of the knowledge he acquired in the 25 years he spent cooking in 4 and 5 star hotels and restaurants throughout Fr

I once gave this restaurant a bad review . I have since visited often and can tell you they completely turned around. Service is great. Food and pricing is terrific. I even joined their club which offers all sorts of discounts like 2 for one etc. Lobster filet combo was terrific. Often all you can drink wine specials, great ambiance... More

The atmosphere was the best part and that was only average. We like to come to this area of Hollywood so that is the only plus. We will never return. Obviously Bistro 1902 only wants to get diners in the door to try to rip them off and doesn't care about any return business. No wonder the restaurant was basically... More

Went here as a guest, overall found food disappointing. On positive note: server was attentive and accomodating. Like most guests, we used groupon. wine champagne included but they were out of champagne. cabarnet was terrible, merlot was below average had one glass. Mixed green salad was fine. I question if ribeye was actually a ribeye, maybe. brown gravy poured on... More

We went with a groupon which had only one option of surf and turf. The pictures showed like an 8 oz filet mignon and lobster tail or huge shrimp. This was not the case at all. The actual food offered was half of a 3 oz lobster tail and half of a 6 oz filet mignon. They said that we... More

We like to go to brunch...mimosas unlimited. The Groupon that covers unlimited house wine is a great deal too. The host always remembers us and so do the waiters.

WE WENT TO THIS PLACE TO CELEBRATE MY FRENCH MOM.S 88 BIRTHDAY. From the moment we sat down till the moment we left it was terrible. They were so rude and we couldn't even eat the food. They refused to make it right. It is not wheelchair friendly. one of the worse experiences of my holiday.

Last evening I decided to get the so called "Surf & Turf" groupon.(bad all around mistake) Being seated quickly the waiter came to the table, I gave him the groupon and he said "how do you want your meat cooked"?
