“Terrific Bistro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012 via mobile

We did not expect to find a wonderful French bistro in Erie and just a short walk from our lovely B and B.
It was a tuesday night and the place was full.
Food was excellent and the wine selection even better.
Service was great and we enjoyed the short stroll back to the B and B.

“French Bistro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Excellent fare, different from the usual dishes. Expensive, but comfortable. Small but reservations not necessary during the week.

“The best over-all restautant visit I have ever experienced!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012 via mobile

Absolutely, hands down, best restaurant I've ever been to. Not only excellent service and food, but the chef himself came to see us after the meal and that put the cherry on top for me! The restaurant alone looks like a piece of France right in Erie. A great selection of a variety of different foods with deserts mouthwatering just looking at them. I was very pleased with the staff who were very accommodating, and also helpful choosing the best wine to go with our meals. I will definitely be returning and cannot wait!!! ~ Josh & Mariah

“Great service & people watching!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

The food here was very good. Certainly not the best French food I've had (been to France), but definitely worth the price and a visit if you are in Erie. We dined outside on a Friday night in August--bike night on the square in Erie. The people watching was great. The motorcycles were mostly on display, so it wasn't terribly loud. Our server was great and always anticipated our needs. We will visit again!

“a refreshing place in unexpected location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

After travelling through Canada for about 10 days, we never thought we'ld have better meals than waht we had sofar in Canada. After all, isn't the USA fast food (and nothing but fast food).
How refreshing then to come across this Bistro.
We wanted to eat at the border of Lake Erie, but as so often - nothing there, not like our coastal cities in Europe. In the market square however this attractive place we went for immediatly.
High quality foods; homely atmosphere; an owner who's not afraid to talk to the costumers, especially if they know his own language (Betrand is French and proud of it too).
Not cheap, but worth every penny. Keep up the good work, the fine cuisine and the service to your costumers. Love, Kris and Viviane from Antwerp.
