Whenever we visit Erie, we try to eat at Bertrand's and have always had a good meal. Our last visit was a huge disappointment. We had reservations at 6PM, so you would think that they would have ample food. Four of us ordered veal- 20 minutes later they inform us that they have only one order available. Three of us... More

Still my absolute favorite place in Erie, but I really miss some things that didn't make it on to the new menu. No garlic aioli for the frites...so sad. No lamb medallions, just the rack...somewhat sad. No mushroom risotto....criminal. That's the only thing I like in the world that actually contains mushrooms. The other risotto was ok, but not as...

This is a smallish restaurant in downtown Erie (not to worry, easy to get to) the parking is right outside. We made reservations and were seated immediately. Service was superb, the waiter did not hover but always seemed to be there. The food was magnificent rating a Michelin star but did cater to the American taste with a French flair.... More

My husband I I were there for our 27th anniversary dinner tonight. Stephanie was our server, and one of the best :) From start to finish the meal could not have been better. From the mixed drink made with burbon, muddled oranges, and others it was perfect, the special soup of the day was beyond amazing! My husband had the... More

Bertrand's is one of my favorite restaurants in Erie. Having been in several cities/towns in France, I can attest to the legitimacy of the cuisine. The atmosphere is quaint, dimly lit for romance . The service is very attentive. Try to get a window seat so that you may gaze out at Perry Square in the city of Erie. If... More

We stopped in for dinner prior to attending a concert last week and the waitress was understanding and helpful to keep us moving so as not to miss the show. Dinner was very good; we all finished everything on our plates so that certainly says much to the quality of the meal. It was too bad we didn't leave time... More

We decided to try this restaurant because we were going to an event downtown. This a first class place. We didn't have a reservation but we were early, so not a problem. We saw a group of 4 come in about a half an hour later without reservations and they were told it would be an hour and half wait.... More

This the second time we have been to Bertrand's Bistro in Erie PA. We had dinner there for our 19th anniversary last July and had a really good time. My wife wanted to go to Bertrand's again, this time for her birthday. We asked for Nick again when we made reservations. Once again, it was a very fun experience. The... More

Followed the reviews to Bertrand's Bistro, and we were glad we did. We began with the meat tray appetizer, both of us enjoyed the pate especially.Wife chose the Steak Frites, and I, the Veal Oscar. Her steak was cooked perfectly, and the dipping sauces (Bearnase, malt vinegar, and black truffle ketchup) complimented the food very well. My veal was tasty,... More

Great location on the park. European feel. Food well prepared and flavorful. Not your ordinary american restaurant menu - better. Hubby enjoyed an appetizer of duck wings - about the size of fat chicken drumsticks. Entrees were delicious - hard to make a choice. Had the crepe sundae for dessert. Used our Fine Dining card. Definitely on the list for... More
