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

We searched for a place offering good food and dog friendly on our drive across the country. Bertrand's fit the bill. We spent a pleasant evening at an outdoor table, and good French cooking. We would go back when in Erie, even dogless.

Marvelous!!! Everything was great. The server was very knowledgeable and seemed tied at the hip with the chef. Only two minor negatives. One of our cocktails was a little too strong and my steak was a hair too well. Deserts and their coffee were extraordinary. Save room for a crepe.

My wife and I were in Erie to attend a wedding and stumbled upon this gem. Without a reservation, we were lucky to get the last table. Our waiter, Nicholas was busy, but very attentive. His wine and menu suggestions were spot on. We shared some wonderful mussels in a garlicy white wine sauce with fresh thyme. Plenty of crusty... More

Bertrands offers 100 bottles of French wine, Dan the server was very good and attentive, the food was average at best very little was French although we ordered Tourendos Rossini, the steaks were over cooked, sauce had little seasoning, oven roasted potato were also little seasoned but the frozen bagged vegetables were a huge distraction from the meal.

This is the best place to eat in Erie, and the region, by a wide margin. Nowhere else will you find food so delicious, all prepared superbly. It is like nothing you have ever had before. Absolutely nothing can compare. I've been to many five star restaurants around the country and other parts of the world, and this is what... More

I live close to Erie, PA in which we always considered a black hole for culinary diversity, That is until we stumbled upon Bertrand's Bistro. We are always looking for new places to eat and are constantly let down by false promises of great food. Bertrand's however is everything you think a dining experience should be.
