“Panhandle bistro...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

I've been here a few times now since it's in the neighborhood. It's gotten quite popular and they have even added some outdoor seating. I've tried the beef bourguignon, scallops risotto, and a few of the fish specials - all were spectacular. My only complaint has been the house wine selections...but hopefully that will improve.

“Fantastic French food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

This place is the real deal. The servers are attentive and friendly, and the food is beautifully presented, and even more delicious! We one of the best bottles of champagne I've ever had, so that helped, too.

“Excellent food Topnotch owner and staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

We visited on a Saturday night so it was busy but we were seated shortly. Food was well worth the short wait -- Onion soup, fillet or lamb and desert. Terrific flavors, service and relaxed atmosphere.
