We were in South Florida and looking for new place. The reviews for Le Bistro made it sound exceptional so we booked a dinner reservation. Upon arrival, we were surprised at how tiny the place is. We were seated immediately and the service was quite good but since only 3 tables were being served, it's hard to judge. We ordered... More

I was glad to find this place given I was tired of all these FastFoodPluses (the CHAIN pseudo-restaurants that serve garbage.. such as TGI Fridays, Marios, etc) and just wanted to try a place with a real chef and fresh food for once. This turned out to be the right place! Food is excellent (fresh, cooked to order, beautiful to... More

I made reservations for a party of 10 but at the last minute one couldn't make it. However, when we arrived it seemed it was a good thing because the table set up for us was just barely big enough for 8 and I had a most uncomfortable "end seat" and had to turn my chair to be able to... More

Wow, that's all I can say! This tiny place in a strip mall delivers outstanding food at a reasonable price, actually more than reasonable considering the quality. We were made at home from the moment we arrived. Our server Ray was genial and incredibly knowledgeable about the menu, clearly invested in all the details. His love for the food came... More

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.

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.
