For that Special Occasion

Authentic French cuisine. Great place for a romantic dinner Intimate seating or larger group if you call and reserve ahead. Everything is explained and it's a great place for that special night and if you enjoy French food.

I like to dine in local restaurants vs chains and read the good reviews on here but I was disappointed. First, the restaurant is part of the Erie Fine Dining program which means that members get one entree free but only 6 entrees are eligible. We weren't interested in any of the EFD entrees. We both ordered the goat cheese... More

Bonjour, I did found out that we ran out of kalamata olives that day and used regular black olives on your salad and I wish somebody would of told you! For the steaks, our invoices show house prime from our distibutor and I mentioned your concern to them. It is still my responsibility and I am sorry to have disappointed... More

We were a small party of five people and for me at least, visiting for the first time. It won’t be the last! Wow! The food was incredible; both my Foie Gras and Rack of Lamb were top draw, but I have to concentrate this review upon the starter of Foie Gras. I visit a restaurant in France every time... More

The entrees, drinks, appetizer and a dessert were gourmet but the bill was similar to pricing from a sit down chain restaurant. The best restaurant in Erie if you like more refined dining. Service was top notch as well.

Never in a million years did I think I would find myself dining at Bertrand's, but an invitation from a friend to meet her there led to my first (but not last) visit. The wait staff is beyond excellent, the food is exquisite and for those who enjoy great wines, this restaurant is for you. I had a veal dish... More

We visit Erie once a year and always include a meal at Bertrand's in our schedule. We live in Chicago and have dined in many nice restaurants and Bertrand's rates up there with the best. Great food.

Barely made it to the Bistro after a long day, about 20 minutes before closing and the staff did not even paid attention to that, excellent service and the food to the level of any high end Bistro in any big city. What a gem!
