Old fashioned French food

We ate here for dinner twice. The restaurant serves old fashioned French food ie well cooked and sizeable portions but lacking the presentation and finesse of the best French restaurants . The first evening I started with escargot. This is often chewy but not in this case and the accompanying... read more

Bistro Soleil was exactly what we hoped for. The servers were wonderful, friendly, classy, and knowledgeable. The setting is quiet and romantic but not stuffy. The food was spectacular and reasonably priced (by Chicago standards at least). We had two different kinds of filet and each were cooked perfectly. The wine selection is plentiful and again there are some great... More

Dined with my brother and sister tonight. Absolutely amazing food; served hot, full of flavor and blew my tastebuds away. Meal includes all sides and great salad dressing. Service outstanding. Value priced wine list. Definitely will be back again!

Sad that it has taken us five weeks to eat here. Asked Yuri for a slow paced meal, wine suggestions and food recommendations . Atmosphere was quirky old world Florida, absolutely charming. Services was to our liking, although a bus girl was annoying when she tried to clear a plate or glass as soon as SHE decided you were finished.... More

We hosted my parents at a birthday dinner for our 13 year olds, who are also foodies. The restaurant feels like a return to Old Florida, with a nice historical ambiance and attentive service. The food was not only delicious, but the portions (such as the rack of lamb) were very generous. We'd highly recommend Bistro Soleil for a special... More

I visit Bistro Soleil as often as possible. The chef (Denis) is a genius with all kinds of wonderful sauces, as well as just great seafood, rack of lamb, duck a l'orange, etc. etc. Even the vegetables are sublime. Lisa manages the restaurant and is a great hostess, and the service staff is wonderful. Plus there is a lovely 'old... More

Lisa and staff at the Bistro are very accommodating,efficient and friendly. I had a small birthday celebration for my sister in law and they did a wonderful job on making everyone at the table feel extremely comfortable like we were part of their family. The entire meal for all of us was a perfect 10. The Rack of Lamb was... More

Finding this little gem was a great find. Down a little side street it was so cute and welcoming with a little motel attached. When we walked it it was apparent this was a veryyyyyy old house but that's part of its charm. The floors are slightly tilted due to its age. Its was quite dim which I prefer and... More
