Lovely bistro located on wine route and across from the Performing Arts Centre. We carry a large variety of VQA wines, many by the glass and even on tap. Hard time deciding? We also offer wine by the flight. We also have beer and cider on tap. Delicious and fresh, join us for tapas, for lunch, dinner or dessert, you will not be disappointed. We also have a boxed lunch option.

Along with the welcoming and relaxing atmosphere, the meal shared among friends at Dani's Bistro was one to rave about! The charcuterie platter had delicious homemade preserves, a variety of rich cheeses and fresh meats. The grilled strip loin was cooked to perfection with a delicious mushroom jus. Our server was attentive and very personable. We recommend Dani's Bistro to... More

Intimate little place on the north side of St.Paul near the old Leonard Hotel. Food is almost comfort like, very well prepared and a bit eclectic. The Caesar salad was nothing to write home about but the Soup de jour was excellent. The rest of the dishes are all interesting and we while we wanted to sample them all we... More

Had a tough strip loin steak and chef did not acknowledge even though there were only 8 people in the restaurant. Portions disappointing and expensive. Wishing we went next store to N'ata Cosa where we went after to get a delicious wood fired pizza to go. Disappointing experience, would not go back!

Great atmosphere, and everything we had was great. Reasonably priced local wine is a great touch. Server was very attentive. Worth a visit if you are in the area!

I went with two friends. Our lunch was delicious. The atmosphere was perfect for a long leisurely lunch and chat. The service was excellent and we chose her recommended. We were not disappointed. I would highly recommend for ladies. I feel the menu is of lighter fare and the portion sizes were not for the harty appetite.a thoroughly delightful time.

Celebrated our usual "Girls Night Out" holiday dinner at Dani's Bistro this weekend. The wine selection was great and the food was fabulous. We all shared the charcuterie platter (highly recommended) & loved all the house made spreads! The rainbow trout dinner special was ah-ma-zing! ! We will definitely be back :)

Dani's Bistro will not disappoint! The food, friendly service and ambiance were excellent! The menu offers a fantastic array of choices to appeal to any palate! I am still thinking about the Cajun Grilled Shrimp Tapas I had as a starter! Hats off to the chef who definitely pays attention to quality when it comes to presentation and preparation alike!...

We have been to Dani's a few times and every time the food and service was amazing. I have book a Christmas diner party there, it was for 14 people and not one persons food was cold, late coming or wrong! Great job guys. Hands down the best Bistro in the Region.
