Was disappointed that we waited the 25 minutes for a table. For appetizers I ordered the French onion soup and it was so bland I didn't even eat 1/2 the bowl. My sister ordered a potato and sausage item that was blah and the sausage was sliced salami. I ordered the steak fritas which did have a good flavor but... More

We made reservations for an early dinner at the Blue Talon and were very pleased with our experience. We had an excellent meal... scallops were cooked perfectly! Our waiter was engaging, knowledgeable and added to the experience. We loved the bistro interior that was reminiscent of those we've been to in France. The place got busy yet we never felt... More

You will be hard pressed to find a better meal anywhere in the area. All of the food is amazing, I have eaten there many times. I will easily brave the tunnel traffic to enjoy a relaxing meal. The service is top level. You must try the chocolate mousse, but you have to tell them when since it is scooped... More

We met some friends and had lunch lunch on a Sunday. Food and service were both very good. The menu is very different and has some very unique items. We will go back.

Went with 3 friends on a Friday night. Service was flawless, steak fries (a touch salty) and truffle fries were great, as were the scallops and the duck breast! Fourth guest ordered the strip steak and found it a bit tough, though it was ordered medium. May be the reason. Always a fantastic experience and the service is great! .

French Onion Soup Was awful. Sandwich was pathetic. $18 for lunch without a drink is too expensive for poor exexecution. Service was tolerable.

A friend told us to give Blue Talon Bistro a try as they said this was their favorite French food. We looked at the menu and it didn't look very "French" to us, but decided to give it a try anyways, we were glad we did! We sat at the bar and started with a couple glasses of wine and... More

We were seated immediately but were wise to have made reservations because even on a Tuesday night the Blue Talon was very busy. Our server was excellent advising of daily specials and gluten free options. I opted for the scallops on black rice with fresh asparagus, a favorite from previous visits and was reminded of how perfectly prepared scallops can... More

My husband and I went here for lunch, and I was impressed by how professional the staff is. We ordered a cheese plate - which was very good - and I ended up having a bistro-style mac 'n cheese. It was made with penne pasta, very yummy, and it was a HUGE serving - you're getting your money's worth. The... More

I went to the Blue Talon Bistro last week during a work conference with some colleagues. We got drinks at the bar while we waited an easy 10 minutes for our table. The bartender made me the best brandy old-fashioned I've had outside of Milwaukee! Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable & everyone enjoyed their food. I had the traditional French... More
