Just went there for their Sunday Champagne Brunch,$25.00 for a 3 course meal, including either a mimosa, champagne or Bloody Mary included. The food was wonderful, the atmosphere was great, we have been there before and always had great food, great service and great fun. Would recommend this place to anyone.

We have NEVER bad service or a bad meal. We have been coming here for years and always take our family and friends here, so they can enjoy the experience and share a wonderful meal.

This is a consistently amazing French restaurant with great attention to detail. Pricy, but a great meal and, if you can get a groupon or other discount, it is well worth it.

Even though the view out of the windows is of a parking lot with Golf Road in the background, this is still a good place to eat a special occasion meal in Mount Prospect. We went on my birthday because my wife had bought a $50 Groupon. I had a full 3 course meal (however not the Prix Fixe menu)... More

This is one of my favorite suburban restaurants. The prices are so reasonable and the menu is fantastic. I go frequently and try their pre-fixe menu most times. I have my favorites that I share with my husband. The shrimp and crab cake, the goat cheese salad, braised lamb shank, creme brûlée, profiteroles. Everything here is very good.

For our first visit to Retro Bistro, we made last-minute reservations for Bastille Day. The food and service were wonderful. We shared a tasty cheesy ravioli as an appetizer and our entrees: rolled Mediterranean chicken and the duck were very good, but filling. We really liked this place so we took my parents there the following Saturday evening. This time,... More

My wife and I have dined at Retro Bistro more than a half dozen times, and consistently, our meals have been wonderful. The menu offers a wide variety of options, the wine choices are solid, the wait-staff is friendly and enthusiastic, and the fixed price menu is very reasonable. Chef Christopher Barth is always on hand to greet us, which... More

Fixed price dinner at $45 gives you a 3 course menu with multiple choices of very good food Generous portions usually a turn off but this place is the exception At $45 definitely a best buy
