This place is easy to miss, too bad we didn't. When i asked to make a reservation for 7p.m. I was told it would have to be at 6- we settled on 6:30. When we got there, i thought it was a joke as there was no one in the place- now i know why- Too be kind, food was... More

We remember your party well, as everyone was so happy, singing, laughing on a day we are typically closed (Monday). It was agreed to arrive earlier than your desired time as we were catering a large party. It would have much more productive to voice any issues at the time and give us a chance to correct. There was only... More

Lovely small restaurant with a friendly atmosphere. Most of the menu is gluten free so plenty of choice. We choose the fixed price menu which was great value. Everything was good and the deserts, creme brulee and chocolate crepe were outstanding.

First visit here with friends for an early Sunday dinner. We were the first ones in the door and were greeted by a friendly hostess/server. I enjoyed my meal here at Le Bistro with one complaint: the bread. I have been to Paris and know what French bread or a baguette tastes like. The bread they served was warm, but... More

Great French-inspired food. Try the bee pollen dusted brie cheese for something unique and delicious. We were a party of four and all of us enjoyed the well prepared food. Some other reviewers experienced slow service, but our service was both friendly and prompt. We will return here next time we are in the Pompano Beach area.

Went there last night. Ordered off the price fixe menu and had four outstanding courses. The food was superb. The service, slow. There was another table seated shortly after us where the husband had to go to the rack where the menus are kept in order to get their menus. Another patron walking in said that she had been coming... More

Food was pretty good. The menu includes beef Wellington, with the note that it takes 30 minutes. Worth considering, since everything else took much longer. Service was very slow, very disorganized and overly familiar. Also, restaurant decor is notably unattractive.

It was really worth driving almost an hour to this restaurant. The ambiance is enjoyable, and the food...DELICIOUS! The owner, Andy and Elin, take pride in offering the best quality of food and service.. If you are vacationing somewhere around Fort Lauderdale you should plan on having dinner at their place. Everything is cooked with love and presented in an... More

It's been quite a while since our last visit to Le Bistro, after my permanent move to Florida at the start of 2013, but Andy and Ellen remain on our "radar" for a third visit. I first discovered them after their appearance on "Kitchen Nightmares", hosted by Mr. "F" word, Gordon Ramsay. Frankly, I think Andy was a great chef... More

Our foodie friends were in town and we decided to indulge them with this special gem. I believed we ordered everything on the menu and they loved it all. The highlight was the roasted cauliflower and Chef Andy's delight of gulf shrimp risotto with champagne sauce. Highly recommend!
