Hidden gem in Lighthouse Point. Some of the best food we have ever had in Florida. One of is vegetarian and had an amazing meal. Have the chef know in advance and he will make a memorable meal because he loves vegetables and knows how to cook them. Everything is delicious and the wine list is great (& really not... More

We've been fans of le bistro for several years, but somehow hadn't visited for over a year. We got back to the quaint restaurant on a Saturday night (out of season) & were so happy to have the same enjoyable experience we've had in the past. A tasting menu was offered ($40), in addition to the regular menu, the wine... More

We shared the baked escargot (with garlic pesto butter) appetizer ($10). It was outstanding. The garlic pesto butter was soaked up with the baget. It was accompanied by a glass of blanc de blanc ($10). One of us chose the special: "Duck leg quarter Confit with Bercotti white beans and house-made Pork Garlic Sausage." (about $30). Accompanied by a French... More

My wife and I were looking for a place in South Florida to have our traditional holiday dinner, when we stumbled upon Le bistro on the internet.

Le Bistro looks like a hole in the wall, but step through the doors and you will be transported to a friendly European Restaurant. The food is excellent. I tasted a myriad of dishes thanks to my friends being willing to share a bite. The staff is relaxed but don't take that to mean they are not professional and prompt.... More

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.
