Outstanding!

It is not often that I am completely overwhelmed by good food but wow! This place just absolutely astounded me. The food was incredible! I booked a table here for a birthday dinner and we were seated in the best table of the house. We had the 5 course pre-fixe menu and everything that came out was... read more

I loved the creative menu the presentation and the quality of the food was prepared with excellence. As a group of 5 adults, we found the restaurant to be a gem tucked away in Incline Village.

The chef of the Bistro is well-known in the Tahoe area because of his previous restaurant. So the Bistro has quite a cache on the North Shore. It is in the back of a strip mall across from the Hyatt. The place is pleasant enough. The food is very good but overpriced. The service was good also. It is typical... More

We got the 5 course tasting menu for $55. Each dish we chose was handmade, delicate and perfectly seasoned. My husband especially enjoyed the gnocchi in truffle sauce and I loved my crab and lobster cocktail. The monkfish was fresh and expertly prepared. Not sure about the wines we had paired for us at $45 ea. next time we will... More

We really wanted to like le bistro but the five course menu was very disappointing. The evening started well with the amuse bouche but then degenerated into some very average dishes.

We have followed chef/owner Jean-Pierre Doignon around the Lake for 25 years or so, initially at his acclaimed La Cheminee at Kings Beach. Le Bistro has been in its current tucked away location across from the Hyatt for many years. We dine here frequently. Truly amazing is that consistently, dinner is as wonderful and exciting as the the very first... More

After a day of being a snow bunny this was a nice escape. Good food, atmosphere and the wallpaper is cool. Make a reservation to ensure your spot. Many little portions fill you up. Its off the beaten path and a little hard to find, but once you're there its a wonderful experience. Enjoy.

Le Bistro features a lavish prix fixe menu of carefully prepared delights. The hostess welcomed us warmly, our server David combined charm and efficiency, and the chef sent out five plus courses of French-Californian fare. The tables and banquettes are well-spaced and comfortable, the background music light jazz, and the lighting indirect but not dim. The menu changes nightly, so... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Incline. It compares favorably with the best restaurants in my experience in New York City, or San Francisco. Five course meal, beautifully presented. Small courses so you leave fully satisfied with an extraordinary dining experience. I take all my clients who purchase the most expensive homes to this restaurant to celebrate their escrows closing.... More
