Delicious French restaurant

Last minute choice..we decided to try Bertrand's and it was delicious. You can tell a lot about a restaurant from the bread that is served! Their French bread and sweet butter was too good to pass up. We also ordered a bottle of Pouilly Fusee . My husbands salmon and my veal with cherries were... read more

The owners and chef are wonderful people. They come around and visit with customers. The food is excellent. Chef is from France and his expertise comes out in his food!

We visited here on Tuesday evening as we were looking for something different than the usual when we come up from Pittsburgh to visit our daughter. There were 4 in our party and it was not very busy that evening. Our server was very knowledgeable about all the items on the menu! When we had a hard time deciding what... More

I had the greatest dinner here!! We started with french fries since our meals weren't coming with them...who can resist fries in goose fat?! They were the best fries I've ever had! Then we had filet mignon with parmesan, truffle smashed potatoes. Amazing. I ate so much and it was worth it! The staff was great! I can hardly wait... More

This was our fourth visit to Bertrand's Bistro and we have thoroughly enjoyed each dining experience!!! The entrees and desserts are as good as ones would find in much more expensive French restaurants in larger cities!! Be sure to leave room for the incredible desserts!! We recommend this cozy bistro highly!!!!!

Not a very "fancy" place, (who can eat antiques and plush carpeting). However, the food is FINE. The wait staff is courteous and very willing to answer all your questions. I have dined here many times and have never been disappointed. I am sure you will enjoy your visit.

We've gone to Bertrand's for years. It is a small intimate space with low lighting. The food is very French and very good.
