Breaded steak with lime, white rice with parmesean cheese, vegetables, bread, olives, and a house salad, always delicious! Don't forget to have some of the chocolate mousse!!

We dined here many years ago looking for a French restaurant in the area. And were disappointed to find that it is more Argentinian then anything else. This past week we decided to try it again thinking that maybe the owners changed and it is a French bistro (as it is named). Again we dined on Argentinian fare with a... More

Most likely the owners, from Argentina, bought this place and never changed the name. It has no French dish in the menu with the exception of a snapper "a la francaise", which my wife and I ordered. It was good but not quite the original one. Too much sauce. Most of the dishes are latin. You are welcomed, very friendly,... More

This Argentinian-owned restaurant with French-type picture on the wall was once a delightful little eatery. We had dinner there and I lunched with a frend there a few months ago. This evening we went back (probably for the last time). The place was practically empty at a quarter of 7 in the evening.. Only half dozen tables had patrons at... More

The restaurant is very quaint and the staff is very friendly and courteous. The food was good and the dessert are excellent too. In addition, the portion are adequate. I like the flat skirt and the creme brûlée!!!! Will recommend and will return.

We went last night for our third visit to this restaurant. The service is good and the churrasco steaks, salad and bread are decent. Two issues for us - last time they had nice Beatles music playing in the background which was nice, not too loud, just perfect. Last night nothing and only three couples in the restaurant so no...

As I said in my headline...........not French but good food. The name of the restaurant can be deceiving because the menu is a mixed bag of offerings but not truly French. My husband and I enjoy neighborhood places that are not too pricey. French Bistro fits the bill. We enjoyed a pentlful parrillada mixta with a small fresh salad starter... More

A simple menu and delicious food! What more can one ask for! Will surely return! The steak and frittes was excellent with a very good tenderloin in lieu of a strip cut...desserts are delicious too!

Our first visit was great - this time rather disappointing. I had the seafood pasta - the red sauce was flavorless and while the shrimp tasted good - the scallops and calamari were flavorless. Service still good and hubby's churrasco was flavorful - so giving three stars instead of two. Will come back but only for meat, never seafood again.... More
