This is quite a find - great french food in a small local restaurant. From wine to dessert, we enjoyed it very much.

Chef Andy is the "garlic king" of south Fl. Having won a number of awards,he releases his creativity on his diversified menu.My onley problem is the number of choices. I sometimes wish the menue was smaller and less descripive.While the surroundings are plain, the food is not. You are in for a great meal. His presentations are picture perfect. Not... More

Le Bistro is a regular haunt when we visit southern Florida, which we do on a fairly regular basis. Chef Andy and Elin always make us feel like family. I have special dietary needs, and always give advance warning to Elin, who never fails to take care of me. The food is tasty, plentiful and with a fine variety to... More

Want a great meal at a fair price? This is it. Recommended it to our son and daughter-in-law...THEY loved it. We go out for dinner 3-5 times per month and like to frequently try new places; we have been here, though, at least a half dozen times in the last year. Worth every penny!

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
