The Bistro on Spruce is a Coeur d' Alene staple for me. I've been there at least a dozen times. They has reliably great food and service. It's a good choice for a dinner for two or brunch for eight. Owner Chris is usually around to regale customers with tales, jokes and wine, and manager Lyndsey makes everybody feel like... More

Bistro is a terrific local favorite. Owner Chris always there, checking on customers and doing the little "extras". Extensive wine list, carefully chosen. Excellently prepared food, fairly priced but not cheap. Tapas is nice - before 6pm little plates with wine specials on Tuesday - nice date night. Family okay, though. Not a "bar" atmosphere at all. Very classy, but... More

My husband and I decided to grab lunch one work day. We had previously attempted to have lunch at the bistro but arrived at 2pm when they were closing. I'm very glad that we went back to try it again. The bistro decor is warm, cozy and inviting. We were seated in a back booth but there was plenty of... More

We have been here more than a dozen times in the last 18 months since we moved to the northwest - and have never been disappointed. There are always some original dishes to sample, as well as the regular menu which has great pork, scallops and fish. The wine selection is wonderful and the service is always awesome. The occasional... More

It's in midtown, not downtown, so is often overlooked, but Bistro on Spruce is a jewel of a place. We recently hit up their happy hour menu (3-5:30) and it was definately worth it. Wines by the glass 1/2 price (hello 2 for 1) and all the small plates quite tasty. Only problem was, we had too many! We will... More

First with the positive. We had a very professional server. She was friendly, adult and efficient. We had the Pork Rib Eye Chop and the Smoked Salmon Ravioli. The pork was pink inside as filet style. This may be gourmet somewhere but not in our house. The knee slapper was a slab of raw cabbage complete with stem that looked... More

Great experience! We often stop for lunch on our way home to Seattle in Cda. This by far our best choice yet. We didn't want sandwiches(although they looked delicious). I had a polenta with fungi and beef. Speechless ! Probably the best polenta I've ever had. We also tried the soup of the day and clam linguini and for dessert... More

Many restaurants in this area come and go, particularly ones not owned by the local resort, but Bistro on Spruce is predictable, consistent, has a well-trained and friendly staff and always, a good menu which varies dependent upon the season. It's one of our favorites and we go here more often than any other in town. Good for lunch, dinner... More

Met with friends for a birthday dinner gathering, my first visit to this Bistro. Cozy atmosphere, delicious fare. Two ordered lamb and found it delicious. Two ordered shrimp and grits (who'd have guessed that grits could be so creamy and fantastic). We arrived in time for tapas, and the Mediterranean veggie dips and the calamari were wonderful. I enjoyed a... More
