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.

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

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.
