The Bistro is back!

After opening to tremendous reviews a few years ago, the Bistro on Spruce went into a decline where food and service quality went down considerably. I am happy to announce that they have found their way back to fantastic service (thank you Josh!) and great food. Their fish tacos are particularly... read more

Always and interesting menu, consistent quality and service. I like the appetizers for the varied selections, and innovative style. Great date place, or family depending on the time of day.

First impression was awesome. We walked in the door and a gentleman sat us immediately and the best seat would be a booth in my opinion. The waitress came right over and got our orders. We ordered a cubano (YUM) and a roasted turkey (YUM). Will stop back in when in the area. Everything from the interior decorating to the... More

We stopped for lunch and found a GREAT waitstaff and a delicious menu surrounded by a lovely atmosphere. I highly recommend the corned beef hash. Homemade with strings of caramelized onions snaking through freshly shaved corned beef and sliced potatoes. Hubby's hamburger received the same high level of culinary attention. Coffee superb. Iced tea fresh. What a delightful afternoon. No... More

Went here last year for St. Patricks Day on March 17th. Sign outside said come in for corned beef and a cold Guiness. Ordered the corned beef...it was lunch only....man was I disappointed. Then I ordered a cold Guiness....guess what....they were out of it at 5:30 in the afternoon on St. Patty's Day. We thought about leaving, but did not.... More

We almost walked out. This would have been a first for us; however, when the service is soooooooo poor... the waitress forgot out menus, twice, and then she forgot that she had a kid's menu. Two quesadillas and two sandwiches took 45 minutes to get to our table. Bad experience. We won't be back, even though the food was actually... More

A little bummed the fire place wasn't working but thats not what we were there for. First read of the menu and I was already pleasantly surprised to find unique breakfast and lunch items! There was something for all of our tastes and I got to try a bite of all 8 different things we ordered from irish to cuban... More

Had another enjoyable lunch there with a friend who had never been there. Both of us were pleased, as I usually am. The French onion soup is always a winner, the waitstaff is always helpful, knowledgeable and heads-up. One of our very favorite Coeur d'Alene eateries.

Excellent, creative, menu. Wonderful service, great prices. Simply, we left Chicago for Portland 14 days ago and this is the best meal we've had on our whole trip.

Nice place--well appointed and comfortable. Excellent service and food. Many locals in the crowd and the manager clearly knew them. A bonus is 40% off bottles of wine on Tuesday nights. You can cork your bottle and take teh rest home--a bonus. All in all good food and value.
