Very Good Small French Restaurant

Small classic French menu restaurant in strip mall. Excellent food and attentive service. During the "offseason", they have a special that is hard to turn down. It's dinner for 2, including appetizer, palate cleanser, entree, dessert and a bottle of house wine, for $100. Small upcharge for a few... read more

Le Bistro is in a well landscaped strip mall. The decor is better inside, you have music, atmosphere and a good staff. I had a glass of the house red. From the day's menu, I had : Bread, cauliflower creme brulee, Cabernet gazpacho tomatillo.

A small restaraunt hidden in a strip mall, with very good food and a quiet romantic atmosphere. It is a bit spendy, but a nice choice for a special occasion, or when they have one of their special prix fixe menus.

Fit for foodies, this strip mall French, is a complete delight. Ambitious menu, including brilliant fresh fish (grouper the night we were there) is a winner. Plates are carefully prepped and ingredients are as fresh as possible. Welcoming staff make this a place to go back to as often as possible.

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).
