The restaurant is quaint but the flavors are big & bold. Chef Andy prepared a specialty to diet preference (gluten dairy free). He made items taste as if we'd never have them before and so good, we went back for their FOODIE NIGHT where he served a 5 course feast, guests guess what they are eating .. unique, tasty, PLAYFUL....

Wonderful little gem in Lighthouse Point, intimate and romantic. The food was outstanding ! I had the filet that was cooked exactly as I requested and it was so tender I could have cut it with my fork. Delicious !

Delectable from start to finish. Oxtail was superb, steak Diane was perfection and the lamb chops divine. The creme brûlée was as delicious as the rest of the meal.

We visited Le Bistro for New Years Eve dinner. This was our first visit to this small but delightful bistro. The restaurant is small and luckily we had a reservation. They had a price fix menu for the holiday that was 4 courses. The first course was Burrata salad or mushroom soup or pollen crusted goat cheese. We each tried... More

Unassuming little place, nice for a quiet dinner. Usually very quiet on a weeknight, especially in the summer. Food is always excellent and creative. A wonderful spot for a meal if you want to actually have a conversation. Chef and his wife are friendly and accommodating, also is a great deal for the quality and caliber of the food!

Always a fun dining experience. We live in the Northeast, but always make time for this restaurant whenever we are in southern Florida.
