I am French and have lived near New York City for a long time. So I was trying, now that we live here in Sarasota, to find an authentic French restaurant. This is it.... I always look at the word Bistrot to see it it's spelled correctly. So many restaurants spell it Bistro which tells me that they have very... More

We recently moved to St. Pete from Austin, Texas and had been missing our favorite french restaurant. We were on a day trip to Sarasota and someone we ran into recommended 62 Bistrot. I was worried that we were dressed in shorts, and had our 9 year old daughter with us, but neither was an issue. We each ordered the... More

Had lunch here last week and dinner last night. Small, comfortable restaurant with charming service. Food is really wonderful and the house wine is great. Superb crepe desserts. We had fish and duck, both being splendid with amazing sauces. We intend to frequent this on a regular basis. Thank you Savor Sarasota for the introduction.

We popped into the 62 Bistrot for a late lunch. My wife had their Ocean Salad which was a salad with smoked salmon. We were both surprised with the generous portion of smoked salmon on the salad. My wife said it was very good. I ordered the Canadian crepe, a crepe with smoked salmon artichoke and sour cream. Really good.... More

How I enjoyed the atmosphere, chef and lovely Vanessa who welcomed us and made us welcome. The buckwheat Crepe was yummy. The salad perfect with the freshly made mustard dressing. The crepe with blackberry jam was a perfect sweet to share over robust coffee. Do go soon and often. You will be very pleased you did!

Stopped for a late lunch, I was pleasantly surprised by the best escargot ever; also be sure to try the duck salad!

We decided to try it today after reading an article about the new owners in "Taste Magazine". My wife and our 2 young kids had a great time. The food was good and reasonably priced, the atmosphere was great and we really enjoyed ourselves. The baguette bread was good and service very friendly. Highly recommended

We were recommended by friends. My wife and I each had a fig salad. This is one of my favorite all time salads. I love figs and the goat cheese was delicious. My B.W. Ate a very rare steak with vegetables and I had chicken with portobello mushrooms. The mushroom sauce was delicious. The portions are large so we skipped... More

First time back since new ownership. Some reviewers stress quaint and intimate atmosphere, I stress the food and dining experience. Both were excellent. Menu is less than 10 items which I view as a plus; allows chef to focus on quality. We both had different veal dishes, both prepared and served very well. Small, well put together wine list. Definitely... More

62 Bistrot provides two separate experiences.... a creperie for breakfast and lunch; a French style bistro for dinner. The ambiance is cozy, with wood paneled walls, seating in faux black leather booths and pleasingly unobtrusive mostly French background music. We have not yet had an opportunity to experience the dinner menu, but the creperie menu provides really enjoyable breakfast and... More
