Received a promotion card to try this place, worst food ever. I believe it's closed now. Steak was too rare and tough, vegetables and potatoes were warm to cold, undercooked, service the waiters were complaining about their hours because they're aren't very busy.

Stopped in for a quick lunch during a conference in Downtown. Food was delicious, very French in flair and so good! Plus it was very... very reasonably priced! I ordered an avocado lobster sandwich (pretty much a lobster roll) on a croissant with a Caesar salad as my side. Lunch grand total for sandwich, soda, and tip $12! Awesome!

I tried Bistro 322 for the 1st time tonight celebrating my daughters birthday. We both had wonderful meals. I had Beef Bourguignon which was fork-tender. She had Shrimp and Sausage Carbonara which had an ample amount of shrimp with a great sauce. They have a great wine menu too. I will definitely be going back. Would love to try the... More

I've lived in Burlington for years and since my husband and I eat out infrequently Bistro 322 did not get my attention until recently. We stopped for lunch and I had the chicken blt with frites and loved it. Those skinny fries are wonderful. We had dinner there about a week later and again we very pleased with the food.... More

Wouldn't have thought Burlington, Iowa would have a wonderful, small French cafe/bistro! It was small but felt Parisan and the menu offered numerous delicious French selections. But best of all the food was terrific, the service was great, and the wine list was great. Real French treat in the middle of the midwest. Prices were honest, and we would highly... More

This restaurant is another store front restaurant in downtown Burlington, but the food is very good. It also has very few tables and a reservation is much recommended. Food is very good. Have been there a couple times this year. They are a bit on the pricy side.

I don't know how we have managed to live within 45 minutes of this restaurant for more than eight years without discovering it sooner! What a delight! The bistro is located downtown in a charming building. The restaurant itself is small--maybe a dozen tables--which makes it a very cozy, intimate space. The food is to-die-for! I had the French onion... More

Cozy, friendly little place. It is small enough that I feel my business is appreciated. The food is excellent and service is superb.

When reviewing, I put the restaurant in context. For instance, I have given a chain restaurant location an overall excellent rating for excellent management, attitude, and consistency. Similarly, my rating of Bistro 322 stays in the context of a bistro. Bistro 322 is quite small, but is located on a corner and is benefitted from several windows. On a bright... More
