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

Small restaurant...definitely not french

I have been to this restaurant a few times when I had coupons. I would very much like to try the Sunday bruch but so far have only eaten lunch and dinner. It was decent food, just not over and above and I would only go there with a coupon

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.

After dining here multiple times, mostly with groupons I found it to be "ok" given the discount. 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"?

I LEFT THIS RESTAURANT IN TEARS AFTER SPEAKING TO THE OWNER. I had first purchased a 44$ Groupon offer for mothers day. Service was OK & since they're always on Groupon I took advantage and took my best friend a week after.

This supposedly French restaurant was recommended by Diners, Drive-ins and Dives on the Food Network channel. It had few traditional French offerings. We arrived around 7 pm on a Saturday. The place was half full, yet we waited quite a while for water and the bread basket. The French bread was wheat not white, thus immediately bringing the taste down... More

From the moment we approached the host we felt French! My boyfriend and I bought a Groupon for our third year anniversary. We were seated on a booth and referred to as Madame and Monsieur. Our waiter was great and provided excellent service. The house Pinot Noir was delicious and the food was fantastic. It is pricey, but with the... More

Bistro 1902 is a great place. The ambiance is fantastic and the menu is just as great. While dining I had the duck comfit and my wife has this wonderful pasta dish. The wait staff is very knowledgeable in term of what wine to pair with your meal. This was a hidden gem.

I regret coming to this restaurant. I DON'T recommend anyone to come here to eat. They called themselves French cuisine but they're really not. Their chef is hispanic and cannot cook at all. The dishes has NO flavor at all. Eating their food is like eating cardboard. Their mimosas are watered down. I ordered the Savory French toast for 10.95$... More
