I love French cuisine - especially when it is served without that annoying French haughtiness. This place is very romantic - quiet and serene. And the food - it is another example of being treated to an ethnic/cultural experience that really does rival the "old country." Go. You will be pleasantly surprised at the authenticity.

Did a birthday dinner with adult family members. While those dining dress casual Florida, the food and service is truly upscale. Everything is prepared to order and we were each pleased with our meals ordering selections off of the fixed price two course menu accompanied by moderately priced wines from a broad selection. We topped the evening off with crepes... More

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!

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
